Codename: The Rift is a work of urban fantasy fiction with plenty of action, adventure, and romance themes, and was penned by author duo Cassandra Featherstone and Gail Jericho. Written for adult audiences, the work does contain the use of explicit language, scenes of a sexual nature, and moderate fantasy violence. This twisting and turning adventure is set in a world where conflict has created a whole new society. Our protagonist Delilah leads a resistance in one corner of the titular Rift, but a dangerous mutation threatens to alter her life beyond recognition. Her only choice is to take on the Company and their experimental game by way of a deadly alliance.

Author duo Cassandra Featherstone and Gail Jericho have crafted a completely captivating modern fantasy epic, one which will keep readers going for page after page in this incredibly immersive world. One of the things which impressed me the most about this work was its commitment to worldbuilding and atmospheric writing; for example, the background characters which populate the world all feel fully fleshed out and realistic, and the political scheming of the Company and their experiment was well reasoned and realistically plotted. Delilah is a powerful protagonist that readers can look up to, and her emotional and personal journey in the story is one that gives the plot its true heart. Overall, I would highly recommend Codename: The Rift to fans of accomplished fantasy adventures that offer a big story with even bigger concepts and characters for them to engage with.
