Surfacing the Rim
About the book:
Reality has been set askew... Jesca Gershon-Sera s life changed forever in the first installment of the Piercing the Fold series. She discovered that she was not an average college student from Marietta, Georgia. Rather, she had a purpose as a Dobrian guardian to protect our world and its humanity. Evolving into an illusion... In Surfacing the Rim: Book 2, the battle between good and evil continues between the Dobrian and Sondian fellowships. The salvation of our world s existence beyond the impending galactic intersection lays in the hands of a Dobrian team of guardians, including Jesca and her father, Ezra Kahn. The Sondian fellowship s inhumane corruption of our world is spreading like wildfire, redrawing lines between allies and enemies. Where bonds are deepened... Jesca continues to strengthen her relationship with Ezra while her physical attraction to Nate Sera, a fellow Dobrian, intensifies. Adopted son of Sondian Samson Crest, Xander Crest has to come to terms with the corrupt Sondian fellowship he has been aiding unknowingly and forms an alliance with the Dobrian fellowship and the one person he did not want to leave behind in Piercing the Fold: Book 1. And choices must be made. Jesca s fortitude is put to the test when she must make crucial decisions in battle and in love. Jesca and the Dobrian guardian team must stop the chaos the Sondians intend to draw into our world from another galaxy. All the while, Jesca must choose between the predestined link that she shares with Nate and the unresolved attraction she holds for Xander. With unexpected twists and turns, Jesca will face a battle of epic proportions in this pre-apocalyptic installment of Piercing the Fold. Will Jesca have enough courage to surface the rim of this reality?
Like book one this book caught me by the mouth and drug me in, where I sat buried deep in the suspenseful second book of Piercing the Fold series. If anything this book was even better than the first, leaving my head reeling with each twist and turn, and causing me to almost cry out in anguish when I reached the cliffhanger at the end. Surfacing the Rim left me with so many questions, #1 being where is book three, and the rest, well I can only say one thing about those, Spoilers. Wink wink. I love Venessa’s characters and how from the moment you meet them you dread anything bad happening to them, I also love the dynamic between her main characters. It’s not often that you find a book that makes the two guys vying for the Heroine’s eye, actually get along, I found this a very refreshing turn on the love triangle, not having the guys trying to kill each other. On that note, while it seems a lot of people go for the good boy in this, by the end of the book, I’ve decided that I am firmly on “Team Xander” and don’t foresee that changing any time soon. I can’t wait for book three, and really I’m left speechless. This book was so wonderfully written, and usually I don’t rate a book by stars, but if I had to rate this one it would be five stars!
