"Journey to a Parallel World"
Books transport us to exotic places, other realms, but
when Charlotte Allen, book store owner, opens the aged
tome a mysterious old woman gave her, she never imagined
she'd be transported quite so literally. Or for a dark
stranger to immediately pull her up on his horse, claiming
he was taking her to safety.
This isn't a time-travel story but rather a journey to a
parallel world that mirrors our own with a few subtle
differences . . . like dragons. Wonderful powerful but
unhappy dragons. Charlotte is a likeable pragmatic
character who finds herself in the center of not only a
war between philosophies but when she falls for the
endearing Daerek Sawyer, she's also in the midst of a war
between brothers. And it's his brother on the wrong side
of the war that may hold the knowledge to getting
Charlotte back to her world.
The author has written an intriging plot with smart and
capable characters. The Rift is an exciting tale that
makes you want to peek up toward the sky and see if there
just might be dragons.
