Ryn Whittaker, young and enhanced both physically and mentally, deals with whatever the Rift in the multiverse sends her way. Sometimes it’s sentient lizards, sometimes it’s the warlike Karekin, and sometimes it’s just the cute boy from the world next door. But something isn’t right. What is happening to these Rift refugees after they arrive? Why do we have to humanize them at all costs? And why aren’t the soldiers on the front lines allowed to have the comfort of serious attachments?
I will tell you upfront that I basically swallowed The Rift Uprising whole. Foster’s writing puts the reader in a head lock and does. Not. Let. Go. The only reason I didn’t finish it in a single sitting is because I have kids who want help with homework, clean underwear and, you know, food and stuff. Responsibility, yay.
