Rift Realm by Bethany Challenger is the first in a six part series that brings to light the transformation of Jade Avanasy, a girl from Australia, who with her best friend, falls into the Realmscape and begins to experience all the terrors and delights that the new universes have to offer. This book is her story, a diary from her to her mother that tells of a war between gods, demons, dragons, men and magic where the goddess of hope has already fallen and without her, all seems to be lost.

Jade finds herself caught up in a war between two empires ruling over the traveled expanse of the Realmscape, the technology loving Elesmerans and the body magic capable Torians. The worlds she finds herself in range from futuristic planet cities to the dark ages of the rim Realms.

Jade Avanasy is a fantasy loving home schooled teenager who has lost the ability to work comfortably within society. She allows her own fears and anxieties to overwhelm her, feeling comfortable only in what is old and well known to her. Jade Avanasy is the type of person that most people can relate to.

This book focuses on the self-doubts and gradually emerging strength of Jade, from her nervous anxiety, inability to express her desires, an all consuming wish to simply go home and leave all the horror and confusion she has witnessed for others to fix, along with her own lack of belief in her abilities to her eventual embracement of her path, all the while traveling through the beautiful ever changing and often dangerous universes within the Realmscape.

Skillfully written, highly imaginative and extremely interesting, Rift Realm is an inspiring and action charged adventure that will not be able to put down. This book offers an intriguing tantalizing plot that abounds with powerful imagery, is laden with substance, and completed with stirring suspense.
