In the rugged landscape of Eastern Oregon, a young scientist named June uncovers an exquisite artifact - a 300-year-old mechanical doll whose existence seems to validate her obsession with a harrowing story she was told by her grandfather many years earlier. The mechanical doll, June believes, is proof of a living race of automatons that walk undetected among us to this day. Ingeniously hidden inside the ancient doll is a lost message, addressed to the court of Peter the Great, czar of Russia.
Seventeen-year-old Ryn Whittaker is a Citadel: an elite, enhanced soldier specially chosen to guard a Rift, a mysterious and dangerous portal to alternate Earths scientists cannot control or close. Trained from the age of 14, Ryn can run faster, jump farther, and fight better than a Navy SEAL - which is good when you’re not sure if a laser-wielding Neanderthal or an axe-wielding Viking is trying to make it through the Rift and into your world. But the teenager’s military conditioning and education have not prepared her for the boy who crosses through.
Not long ago, Ryn knew what her future would be - as a Citadel, it was her job to protect her version of Earth among an infinite number of other versions in the vast Multiverse at any cost. But when Ezra Massad arrived on Ryn’s Earth, her life changed in an instant, and he pushed her to start asking why she was turned into a Citadel in the first place.
For three years teenage supersoldier Ryn Whittaker served as a Citadel, guarding the Battle Ground Rift site - one of 14 mysterious and unpredictable tears in the fabric of the universe that serve as doorways to alternate Earths. But everything changed when Ezra Massad came tumbling out of The Rift. Together, Ryn and Ezra began to unravel the mysteries of the Allied Rift Coalition. And what they discovered started a civil war.
Teenage supersoldier Ryn Whittaker started an uprising. For three years Ryn was stationed at The Battle Ground Rift site - one of the 14 mysterious and unpredictable tears in the fabric of the universe that serve as doorways to alternate Earths - and then she met Ezra Massad. Falling in love and becoming a rebel Citadel wasn't part of Ryn's life plan, but with Ezra there asking all the right questions, they began to decode what's really going on with the Allied Rift Coalition, and what they discovered was enough to start a civil war.
The first story in the fast-paced action-adventure The Rift Uprising trilogy - an enthralling mix of speculative fiction and military thriller - in which a young soldier comes to question the monsters she's trained to fight against...and the monsters she fights for. Seventeen-year-old Ryn Whittaker is a Citadel: an elite, enhanced soldier specially chosen to guard a Rift, a mysterious and dangerous portal to alternate Earths scientists cannot control or close.
As a Citadel, a genetically enhanced super-soldier, it was Ryn's job to protect her version of Earth among an infinite number of other versions in the vast multiverse. But when Ezra Massad arrived on Ryn’s Earth, her life changed in an instant, and he pushed her to start asking why she was turned into a Citadel in the first place. What began as merely an investigation into her origins ended up hurling Ryn, Ezra, and Ryn’s teammate Levi through the multiverse and headlong into a conspiracy so vast and complex that Ryn can no longer merely be a soldier...she must now be a general.
