“I longed for normality. Even our own, off-the-wall brand of normality.”

She’s finally got things together. Mimi’s dating a hot guy and has a place in the school’s Gifted Program with her awesome friends. Yes, she still attracts the dead. But there’s only one ghost these days, and he doesn’t seem to have an awful lot to say.

Just when Mimi’s life is looking pretty good for the first time in years, the unthinkable happens ... one of the seven gifted teens is torn from their close-knit group. The unity of their circle shattered, things begin to go terribly wrong. It’s ruining their focus—and with the threat of the Astarion cult growing stronger each day, the gifted seven need all the focus they can muster.

In The Seventh, Mimi found her place in a circle of seven extraordinary teenagers. In The Rift, she must face what happens when the circle of seven is broken.

The Rift by S.D. Wasley (The Seventh Series, #2)

The RiftSeven extraordinary teens, each with a unique ability have grown into a cohesive group of friends and allies, always watching out for each other, never sharing what they can do with “normal” people. These teens make up the Gifted Class at their school. There is significance in there being seven of them. When one of the students is taken away from their group by her controlling father, the harmony is broken and the remaining six are having “glitches” in their powers. Is this a plan by their enemy, the Astarian Cult to destroy them? They are weakening as a group and as individuals and hope is almost lost that they can regain the stability they need.

The darkness is coming, the shadows are growing, a storm is brewing and even Mimi’s ghosts are becoming silent. Follow these teens as they ferret the meaning of certain texts and dig into the dark history of the Astarian Cult. Somehow they must get to their seventh member, their friend, but will it ever happen or will Mimi and her group get caught up in a web of danger they cannot escape from? Emotions run high, friendships are tested and nothing will be the same if they do not have the seventh member. Is this the end? Will the Astarians win, wreaking havoc on the world?

What began in S.D. Wasley’s The Seventh grows in The Rift as seven teens prepare for the unknown, relying on their common ground to work as a team, in spite of their “glitches.”Will the discordant notes among them destroy the harmony they have created? Are they ripe to picked at by the Astarians?

S.D. Wasley has done another incredible job of bringing each character to life and giving them each a voice to be heard while ratcheting up the tempo, the mystery and the unseen dangers! This is NOT an angst-filled young adult fantasy, this is teens at their best, well almost, working together to dig deep and gain the answers they so desperately need. Watch the tapestry of events unfold as S.D. Wasley weaves another tale of mystery in a world where “special” teens reside. Wonderful reading for teens on up, as S.D. Wasley creates a tale for all ages.

I received this copy from S.D. Wasley in exchange for my honest review.
