What am I Reading? The Rifter by Ginn Hale

Ohhh, two posts in one day! But I couldn't help it, I am so excited!

I was lucky enough to win a complete subscription to Ginn Hale's new serial The Rifter. A big thanks to the ladies over at the Desert Island Keepers blog who held another one of their great, great contests, and to Nicole Kimberling of Blind Eye Books for their generosity.

Here's a summary of the overall story and some information on the serial:
When John opens a letter addressed to his missing roommate, Kyle, he expects to find a house key. Instead he is swept into a strange realm of magic, mysticism, revolutionaries and assassins. Though he struggles to escape, John is drawn steadily closer to a fate he shares with Kyle—to wake the destroyer god, the Rifter, and shatter a world.

Written over five years, The Rifter is award-winning author Ginn Hale's new ten-part serialized novel that follows two men transported from modern America to a theocratic world in the throes of a revolution.
The first episode, The Shattered Gates, was released yesterday March 8, 2011. New installments will be released on the second Tuesday of each month and I'll let you know all about the first episode when I'm done, and the rest as they come along.

Available here.


  1. Lucky you, Hils!! You sound so excited, so it's great :)

    This is an author I should give a try to, as she got raved reviews :)

  2. Wow!
    I had no idea they even serialized novels that way anymore!! Sounds like an interesting premise, I can't wait to hear your thoughts.

  3. Nath, I've been keeping an eye on the development of this series for quite a while, so yes I'm really excited that it's finally finished. You know that Wicked Intentions by Hale was at the top of my reading list in 2009 and well... how could I not be excited? I won the whole thing! LOL! You should definitely give her a try.

    Alex, I know! This is such an interesting way of releasing a new book. Just think -- 10 episodes, 100 pages a piece = 1000 pages. That's one long book! It should be interesting reading it this way. I understand from Orannia that there's even a "group" that will be discussing the episodes at Goodreads. :)

  4. Congrats on the win!

    I'm reading it for review, and LOVED part 1. Will start part 2 next week.

    Looking forward to your thoughts on it, Hilcia!

  5. Thanks, Renee!

    Ohhh I'll look forward to your review of the whole book. I'm really enjoying The Shattered Gates so far, I've a feeling it's going to be tough leaving the story... and waiting for the rest every month. :)
