    1. EDIT TO THE EDIT so, this IS being sold and shelved as adult SF in stores,which means i DON T have to rewrite the review and this is all proof that sometimes procrastination pays off whe EDIT i am a lousy detective this IS a YA title, which makes my review nothing than the rantings of a lunatic i ll rewrite it as soon as time allows, but for now, please enjoy it as an example of me being wrong for a million paragraphs.People always say, Oh, I have to get my hair done, or I have to pick up my dr [...]

    2. DNF 18%God I really hate to write a DNF review for this It has potential I feel the potential But the fucking Insta love UGH I don t understand these weird YA NA crossover type books, it s like We are going to mix everything you hate about YA with a healthy dose of sex, enjoy eye roll I am going to try and pick this back up at a later date but for now I just really cannot bring myself to give two shits about the plot I m bored.

    3. 3 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum bibliosanctum 2016 10 04 The first thing you should know about The Rift Uprising is that while it may be published under adult sci fi and fantasy imprint Harper Voyager, it is patently, most assuredly, a Young Adult novel Thinking there would be at least some crossover appeal, I did have to go through a brief adjustment period to alter my expectations, because I believe target audience matters Indeed, once I donned my YA reader hat, I found this one easier to en [...]

    4. Ryn was selected to become a special soldier to guard the Rift At 17, she has already seen than her share of bloodshed and yearns for something than just killing the unruly the Rift crossers and escorting the passive ones into captivity for the rest of their lives.When Ryn makes a special connection with an extremely intelligent young man, Ezra, that gets pulled through the the Rift , she makes a promises that she should never keep She promises to see him again She breaks into the secure holdi [...]

    5. I just saw an advert for this that said The explosive start to a new trilogy that combines the fast paced action of Suzanne Collins Hunger Games, the lyrical tone of Laini Taylor s Daughter of Smoke and Bone, and the emotional stakes of Pierce Brown s Red Rising That s not a lot to live up to or anything.

    6. I m going to give this book 2.5 stars.I really really liked the idea of The Rift, I liked the whole portal bringing aliens and people from other multiverses idea.Citadels were another factor I really liked, I am a sucker for the classic genetically altered soldier, and I fell in love with the way the Citadels functioned.Now for why I give this 2.5 starsThe story was there, it had potential and that s what hurts In the beginning the biggest problem I had was that I found Ryn just a bit annoying T [...]

    7. While I did enjoy the story it was fast paced and once in a while I do like a romance heavy story there was nothing particularly original here, and I didn t enjoy some of the views of the main characters I might continue the series, but it has one of my least favourite tropes at the end of the novel, so I m going to let it simmer for a while.

    8. Review on bookishrealmreviews 20Let me start by saying that the premise for this book is ultimately amazing The world is a version of earth set in the future however, a tear in the universe allows creatures and humans from other worlds to come into this version of earth As a result, children are implanted with devices to become defenders of the rift All I can say is that is the most amazing concept that I have heard of in a long while I m not a huge science fiction fan, but for some reason the s [...]

    9. This is a DNF for me This is marketed as an adult YA crossover but to me sits firmly in YA The premise is fascinating but I was looking to get my geek on, not deal with a romance I think for those looking for a light science fiction it would be enjoyable

    10. No rating because I had to DNF it The teen instalove with a want for a download so she can have sex just isn t working for me.

    11. I received a finished copy for review and this was originally published on my blog, Avid Reader Plot I CAN T EVEN TELL YOU HOW MUCH THIS HAS MESSED ME OVER BECAUSE IT S INSANITY IN A GOOD WAY LIKE NOT AT ALL LIKE I EXPECTED AND OHMYGOD IT S INSANE i can t say much else or else it gives it all up but ya, it s INSANE Characters okay so main character was Ryn and can we pls discuss how 1 I imagined her as the Viner Lele Pons and 2 SHE S FREAKING AWESOME like sure she has her flaws and she is built [...]

    12. I need to stop reading Teen novels that are also movies TV shows, at least for a while They re really not my cup of tea right now This is probably pretty decent if you re looking for a book about a teen girl who s conflicted about punching things, and the boy she can t be with Also, poorly thought out government conspiracy to force her to punch things and not be with boys I just couldn t take her emotions seriously, and that s the main thing the book has going for it.

    13. Great start to the series Claire Coffee is fabulous on audio Just about the time I thought this was going to drop into Special Snowflake Syndrome, the main character insists that she s not the one and gets an apology There s a hint of a love triangle that never really develops but might, and it might be a rare case where it spices things up I can t wait for the next book.

    14. 3.5 5 Stars I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review So The Rift, I have a lot of thoughts about this one When I first read the synopsis I was all over it, a gateway to parallel universes, soldiers, and science There was things I enjoyed about this book and other things I really did not like Starting with the things I liked I did really love the concept of the rift itself and all the creatures that came out of it I also really liked all the fight scenes and the jo [...]

    15. Source Publisher Genre Young Adult, Science Fiction Rating 3 3.5 My Thoughts The Rift Uprising is the first installment in author Amy S Foster s The Rift Uprising Trilogy Set in a not too distant future, the story features 17 year old Ryn Whittaker Ryn is the leader of Beta Team, a group of super soldiers who have been trained since an early age to protect the world from invaders who show up through Rifts Rifts are portals to an infinite number of other Earths Rifts that manage to cobbler all so [...]

    16. 3.5 StarsI was really excited about this book and while I didn t fall head over heels in love with it I, on the whole, quite enjoyed it The concept of these random rifts opening up around the world, rifts that open into other earthen planes, even some that are exactly like the one we live in currently is pretty cool The diabolical concept that these rifts are guarded by teenagers instead of adults is intriguing, the underlying suspense and the unknown to the story is capturing The problem for me [...]

    17. The Rift Uprising is the first book I ve read by Amy Foster and when I read the summary, I was immediately interested The focus is on a group of teenagers who were developed to be stronger and smarter so that they can help protect their world from whatever might come through the Rift, a portal that leads to alternate Earths and something they can t close.Ryn is the main character and she is also the leader of her group so when it is her team s turn to be on the front line of the Rift the day tha [...]

    18. I received a free ARC of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.The premise of this book was pretty unique and intriguing to me I used to be a physics major, so the multiverse theory has always intrigued me The Rift is a result of experiments done by leading minds on Earth However, the experiments went awry and a tear in the universe occurred that allows creatures and people from other parallel universes to enter our own Citadels, which are children implanted with the knowled [...]

    19. Listened to this on audio book First of all I love the cover So I was debating if I wanted to give this book 3 or 4 stars Since I listened to it I can t judge it based on the writing, which is the most important part to me But I did really enjoy it The best part is the concept it really made me think about the universe and infinity and evolution and philosophical questions But I wanted even There was a bit too much insignificant back and forth nonsense going on The characters are very one dimen [...]

    20. Thank you to the publisher for the copy in exchange for my honest review.There will always be books where you just didn t mesh well with them Unfortunately, for RIFT UPRISING by Amy S Foster, that was the case I haven t DNF a book this year and I was determined to push through.I ll keep this short this book started off interesting and definitely had some great potential It lost me at the insta love between the characters Why is this always such a popular thing Then having sex be the main drive a [...]

    21. Received in exchange for a honest review.Ryn is a strong character and very strong willed I liked how she began to think for herself and sought to find out the truth She is beginning to question the leadership and what they did to her and her friends.When does this occur When one of the people who came through the rift isn t what she thought She goes on a journey of discovery Of herself, her beliefs and the truth And what she finds is truly disturbing but also riveting the story is great in the [...]

    22. This book is probably the most annoying book I have read in a very very VERY long time Let me break it down for you Ryn is a teenager who was implanted with superpowers as a small child and at puberty was activated and turned into a soldier to defend a Rift that leads to parallel universes Oh and she can t have sex That last part is essentially what THE ENTIRE BOOK REVOLVES AROUND The need for this teenager and other teenagers like her to have SEX She doesn t change the world or fight against Bi [...]

    23. More than 3.5 stars, but not quite 4.There were some bits not fleshed out enough I really wish there d been with Ryn s the h family, and I really wanted to get to know the secondary characters betterd I really wish this wasn t all from the heroines pov I d have loved getting Ezra s pov.what he goes through Is so distinctly different than what the heroine goes through, it feels like not getting his pov, means we re missing part of the story But for the most part this was an amazing YA read On a [...]

    24. Ok so I m really not good at writing reviews this book is like a mix between Divergent and Hunger Games It kept me reading from the start I have literally been sneaking reading this book at work because I couldn t put it down The concepts are great Love the idea of multi universes, different species and trying to figure out who the villains are in this book I m just really sad that I don t have a sequel that I can dive into already for that matter the first book isn t even released I got lucky t [...]

    25. I hardly ever read sci fi and when I do it s normally watered down so when I was sent a copy of The Rift Uprising for review I was skeptical at best This seems to be targeted towards Adult Older Teens and man was it a great read I m seriously contemplating checking out adult sci fi if they are all as good as The Rift Uprising Personally I though the twists were well done and the characters pretty likeable I enjoyed the fact that the main character had to sneak around and leave her family in th [...]

    26. One word Incredible Cannot wait to read the rest of the trilogy This is going to be as HUGE as THG, GoT, Fifth Wave I could not stop reading after I opened the first page, which is about the history, the rifts opening, and how the Citadels came to be Must read

    27. Probably would have been a higher rating if this wasn t really a YA book being marketed to adults under the assumption we hadn t read Hunger Games or other YA scifi and instead done something interesting with the genre.

    28. I can almost safely say at this point it s probably my mood and I am going to give up reading today and turn on Gil Girls I liked the concept and I may come back to this one.

    29. The Rift is an exciting and gripping thrill ride that begins when seventeen year old Ryn Whitaker an elite, genetically enhanced soldier guarding the Rift , a dangerous portal to alternate Earths meets brilliant scientist and traveler Ezra Massad Thrust across time and space, arriving disoriented and lost only to be thrust into the Village , a comfortable prison for new immigrants Ryn promises to visit Ezra, the boy she s physically attracted to and can t forget.But after making a deal to be abl [...]

    30. My Synopsis Review Follows In 2005 a laboratory in Liver, California attempting to understand the properties of dark matter conducted an experiment that resulted in the opening of a doorway to the Multiverse Scientists deemed this portal to other versions of our world The Rift , and within hours 13 Rifts opened up around the world Fearing mass panic, the global leaders of the world united to form an alliance called ARC the Allied Rift Coalition It was meant to keep the Rifts from public knowled [...]
