The Call of the Rift: Flight

The Call of the Rift: Flight

The Call of the Rift: Flight

Check out my debut novel Flight :meow:

Seventeen-year-old Kateiko doesn’t want to be Rin anymore ― not if it means sacrificing lives to protect the dead. Her only way out is to join another tribe, a one-way trek through the coastal rainforest. Killing a colonial soldier in the woods isn’t part of the plan. Neither is spending the winter with Tiernan, an immigrant who keeps a sword with his carpentry tools. His log cabin leaks and his stories about other worlds raise more questions than they answer.

Then the air spirit Suriel, long thought dormant, resurrects a war. For Kateiko, protecting other tribes in her confederacy is atonement. For Tiernan, war is a return to the military life he’s desperate to forget.

Leaving Tiernan means losing the one man Kateiko trusts. Staying with him means abandoning colonists to a death sentence. In a region tainted by prejudice and on the brink of civil war, she has to decide what’s worth dying ― or killing ― for.

“[A] stunning debut . . . An intricately lush and well-crafted new fantasy that deserves (and demands) a sequel.” ― Kirkus Reviews, starred review :star:

“Waller puts a great deal of thought into her world-building . . . A mature choice for those who love high fantasy and magical realism.” ― School Library Journal

“A brilliant example of contemporary fantasy. The story itself was genuinely compelling. Every setting was clearly conveyed and beautifully described.” ― Bookmarked blog

8 deviants said Jo was my most frequent commissioner, plus a colleague and friend, so I'm in shock that she's gone.
No deviants said If you have any further info, please pass it on to me. It'll help me process all this.

"Heaven sent but hell bent on getting shit done"

I'm a multi-disciplinary artist. I have a BFA in fine arts and creative writing, plus I've studied linguistics and Japanese, which might explain my scattershot approach. :B I'm originally from northwest Canada, but currently live in southeast Australia and can't tell which season it is.
