The Call of the Rift: Flight
The Call of the Rift: Flight | Jae Waller
2 posts | 1 read | 26 to read
A rebellious heroine faces a colonial world coming unstitched in Jae Waller's stunning debut fantasy 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.

Holy hell why is this book so low key!? So I know books with indigenous folklore or cultures can be very full for people or sit in that relatively unpopular "paranormal magical realism" genres but this book was FANTASTIC! All the characters were so enjoyable to read about and the mystery had me legit guessing the whole book! I am absolutely picking up the sequel when it comes out

Nute Well, you have totally pulled me on board for this book. I‘ve never heard of it or the author, but I want to find out more information immediately. Thanks for sharing! 3w

It's June which is Indigenous History Month in Canada so I wanted to make sure I read something by an Indigenous author or with an Indigenous character.

Enter this book blurbed as "Philip Pullman meets Avatar"
