Five years ago, young sorcerer Dante Galand and his friend Blays averted war against their new home, the city of Narashtovik. Ever since, they've been repaying their debts, arming and training the nomadic norren people in preparation for rebellion against the empire that enslaves them.

When Dante hears a nearby norren clan is in possession of the Quivering Bow--a legendary artifact that can strike down walls with a single arrow--his course is clear. With such a weapon, he can secure independence for both the norren and Narashtovik. But the bow has been taken by the enemy. Following a trail of pirates and slavers, Dante, Blays, and a clan of norren warriors strike deep into enemy lands.

Until now, their rebellion's been kept secret. But their quest for the bow leads Dante and Blays to an all-out assault on the personal manor of powerful lord Cassinder. Enraged, Cassinder will have his revenge on norren and Narashtovik alike--and this time, there will be no stopping the engines of war.

600 pages long, The Great Rift is an epic story of war, deceit, and the struggle to stay good through the darkest of times.

An epic journey. I couldn't put the book down until I turned the last page.

I started this series with the first novel nestled in a compilation book of 14 novels by various authors. I loved the first book so much I immediately purchased this next installment. (And upon devouring that book, purchased the third.) It is wonderful to find a series that grips you from the beginning and manages to keep its pace through the entire series. It is imaginative, original, and well written. The characters are fleshed out, and I found them very likeable. The author has suceeded in his craft when the reader finds themselves empathizing and sympathising with people who only exist in the imagination. The constant wit of dialogue between the characters was refreshing and only served to deepen my reading enjoyment. It isn't often I give a 5 star rating but this series deserves it. Well done!
