Naran Stalwart is an up and coming young scientist who lives on logic and breathes facts. Until the day she breaks the law. The law of the ancient Didelians.
The Didelians appeared after the Second World War and have provided mesmerizing nomadic shows ever since. Nobody knows who they are or where they came from. A seat to their show is a ticket to being transported outside the realm of human possibilities.
Naran enters the world of the Didelians and discovers an exhilarating, surreal existence filled with magic and exploration. Unexpected lessons form around her deepest desires and fears, and gradually change her perspective on the facts she had been taught to believe.
Why was Naran chosen to learn about a people so long hidden from the world? Is she finding herself or losing herself? Why is ‘the Rift’ so important?
Follow Naran as she courageously faces her worst fears, and discovers the truth about herself and history in this riveting tale of personal growth and hidden surprises.
From the Author:
People asked me if I can compare Rift to an existing book or product. They like to categorize things in their minds. As fellow human, I understand the comforting effects of expectation.
I started to search comparable material and soon after, I concluded that comparing Rift to just one piece of matter, is an impossibility. So let’s compare it to several.
Rift is a story in which the strength from the Hunger Games meets nomadic the cousins from the Elves of Rivendell. It takes you to Cirque du Soleil tinted shows from a different time and dimension, full of shimmer and honest magic. Darth father lures from a distance while we discover an Avatarian world influenced by Harry Potterian classes, which sometimes lead us in the shoes of Alice, right down the rabbit hole. A short Twilightesque romance might or might not happen, the characters are as confused as we are. As seen in the Lion King, it’s a story about deep darkness against blinding light. While the government turns against the magic of the people, à la House of Cards, Naran, who potentially loves to read Oliver Sachs books, learns that self development is not necessarily just a term from Oprah. She is actually experiencing it. Needless to say, the entire book floats on harmonious celestial harps and trembling tambourins interspersed with dramatic drums produced by James Horner.
