It didn’t have me grovelling to find out what happened at the end, it didn’t make me fall in love with the charachters because I did not bond or feel anything for them.

When the knights realize that one among them is dabbling in dark magic, danger heightens and Ember must choose whether to follow the path to darkness or to escape the order and pledge her life to destroying her fellow knights.

I know this will fift stupid but she has green eyes. Hardcoverpages. We finally see their story, the beginnings of the end. Also by Andrea Cremer. He wore that infuriating expression of being on the verge of laughter.

Instead it follows the adventures of Ember, a girl in the early fifteenth century Scottish Lowlands who struggles against the expectations of her class and sex to become a warrior For anyone who is worried that Rift is a derivative piece of work meant to capitalize on the success of Andrea Cremer’s Nightshade series That kick-ass label never manifested itself, as she was often laughed at by the cast of characters and didn’t have the courage to stand up to Ren or Shay about anything, or turn either of them down to the point where she led both of the idiots on throughout the final book like the skank she pretended she wasn’t though the Wolfsbane cover suggests otherwise.


Exciting stuff, yet again. Her childhood friend Allistair is also a guard and seeks to help her in any way he can.

Ember was an outstanding character!

Sixteen-year-old Ember, from a noble family, yearns to become a warrior instead of a wife. Wow, this book was pretty intense and awesome!


Though I do think that even if you haven’t read fift Nightshade series, you can and will be able to understand this. Read it Forward Read it first.

The evil will begin to corrupt them, looking for the one who will set it free! Ember is the girl who wants to fight. Very exciting prequel to the Nightshade series.

I loved Ember, who at birth was saved by a healer from Conatus, and subsequently was forced at the age of 16 to enter service to Conatus. Her old friend, Alaister and his fellow knight, Barrow inform Ember’s parents that they must follow through with their promise and allow Ember to join Conatus.

Sure it was action-packed, but it was a bit too much. Feb 11, Ariel Mathis rated it it was amazing Shelves: For Ember, the call to become a warrior is strong, and becoming a Guard in Conatus is not tangible.


This prequel to the popular Nightshade trilogy takes readers to Scotland inwhere the Searchers and Keepers conflict begins. I’m looking forward to the sequel, Rise, but I’m disappointed that there’s only 2 prequel books instead of 3 – Rift outshines the Nightshade trilogy in every way.

I understand that it’s fantasy as well as historical fiction, but I just didn’t enjoy it as much as I did the Nightshade trilogy. I look forward to reading the rest of Ember’s adventures to see how everything pans out! It just makes the story far more special in my andreaa. We may have one in the next book. The characters of completely different cremfr those who are in Nightshade and as much as I loved them characters, it was nice for Andrea to create a whole new set of characters that were just as unique and made them stand out on their own.

Return to Book Page. She was also supposedly in love with the jack-ass I like to call Shay. View all 13 comments. She spent her childhood daydreaming and roaming andrfa forests and lakeshores of Northern Wisconsin.
