Joe Jimenez, grieving father and estranged husband, on the eve of the anniversary of his son's death is on the brink of complete despair when he witnesses the arrival of a strange atmospheric anomaly. The rift – a curious tear in the very air of his backyard – appears nightly, and after some experimentation, Joe discovers that for everything that's sent through the rift, something similar, but horribly wrong, comes back. And when something on the other side claims to be in possession of his son, Joe has to make the most important decision of his life: should he go through and find out?

Holy fuck I was not prepared for the intense emotions that I would experience as a parent myself while reading this book. The Rift is a horror novel about a man who is coping with the death of his son. If you like King's Pet Semetary-- but enjoy dark scifi like Benjamin Percy's Ninth Metal series, this book is for you. It's mind boggling, thought provoking, and devastatingly human.
Thank you NetGalley, the publisher Flame Tree Press and of course the author, for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
This is amazing! The rift is extremely well written and the characters life-like and realistic. I couldn't put it down. I actually feel sad that i won't be able to read this again for the first time and envy those who have yet to read it. May you enjoy it as much as i did!
Due to the disappearance of Joe son Evan he and his wife have separated after there son Evan’s disappearance Joe has never been the same. One day while Joe is taking in his home in its surroundings he notices a rift in the atmosphere somethings he’s never seen before and as the days go by he notices it comes at the same time every afternoon. After a few homemade experiments he notices that you can throw things into the rift but when it comes out it isn’t the same as when it went in. He even figures out a way to breach the opening without going in an even trade‘s messages with the rift and errors in one of these messages that it tells him his son is there that everyone is there and he should come! Joe couldn’t be more excited but when he finally goes to look for his son oh he be trapped there forever come back changed or not come back at all! this is such an original imaginative story and I could not for the life and they think how it would end but just like it had a great beginning and the great middle it had a great ending as well the book flows along with no dull moment they have some action some heart palpitating moments it’s just an all-around great book and so original! I love that and highly recommend it to any horror fan who likes alternate universe type stories you will definitely love The Rift by Seth C Adams I really don’t think you will be disappointed. I want to thank flame tree publishing and NetGalley for my free arc copy please forgive any mistakes as I am blind and dictate my review.
