This book rocked my socks off! Amazing plot line with dynamic characters, Ms. Cremer wrote the book of my dreams.The reason why I adore this book is because of the elements. There is a girl, different yet has a destiny that is waiting for her. Pair her up with a secret society with a hottie for a mentor and you got yourself one hell of a story! Seriously this book is like WOW! I loved that one thing this plot has is a great timeline. Plotted in the past, it leads the character to a time where women did things in secret. Like learning how to wield a sword and throw a punch. Ember takes to her destiny like peanut butter and jelly. She doesn't give up, yet so grows fast in front of the reader with amazing stamina.The characters of the book are awesome. The secret society and mentors she has, really plots out what Ember will be going through. The characters don't develop too fast. Ms. Cremer gives the reader a good time to really learn the characters. And once you know them you can't help but smile the rest of the way through.Love interest. Who doesn't love it when a hunky guy with a sword in his has calls her lass. *MAJOR SWOON* Let me tell you that I fell for this guys fast. He is brilliant yet is sure of himself. He like that Ember is not some regular girl, but a challenge that can have me guessing all the time. Love it!Rift is a brilliant mixed of light and dark.
