'The Shattered Gates' is book one in Ginn Hales series 'The Rifters' and it's the beginning of a 10 book (actually it's more of a 10 novella) buddy read with the lovely M'rella. So I'm probably not going to do a review for each one more of a brief comment and then I'll attempt an overall review after the last book...or at least that's my plan.
So book one is mostly an introduction to the main characters and world building. There's no hot smexy times, but for me there was definitely some confusion at the beginning, however, the author also lays down enough groundwork to grab my interest and make me want more and to feel like this has the potential to be a really interesting if not epic tale.
It's on to book #2 'Servants of the Crossed Arrows' once I've finished my current read 'In the Middle of Somewhere' which should happen today. I've heard a lot of good things about this series so I'm definitely looking forward to reading more.
