Edge of the Breach is a grimdark story, the first part of the Rift Cycle series, and written by independent author Halo Scot.
The author brings forth a world cursed by humanity’s unquenchable thirst for violence. In their most recent war, most of the Earth is rendered uninhabitable, the poles are reversed, and a rift to another dimension is opened. The latter event unleashes gods and magic onto our lands, imbuing powers to humanity based on the season of their birth.
In this post-apocalyptic hellscape, we are introduced to two main characters who are polar opposites of one another. This theme flows out beautifully from out of the prose, and Halo Scot writes each character in first-person form.
Over the span of a decade, you’ll see them grow, adapt to evolving dangers, and find their niche in this dark world. Despite their stark differences, they find themselves inexplicably linked, which comes into play as the story develops.
Edge of the Breach is a wonderfully crafted novel that offers a taste of what is to come. The book itself is an easy read, with short chapters that can be consumed in bite-sized chunks. For what happens next, the reader will need to progress in the series, with hints of a war between immortal Gods.
