Blurb- After a minor earthquake, the enchanted forest in Bidwell, MA, is infested with monster-spewing rifts. Gisele's great nephew, the gifted Micah, and his distant cousin, Selena, arrive to assist. Together with Gisele's summer students, twins Haley and Lacey, they will try to help the magical forest. Much to the consternation of the beautiful Selena, Micah identifies Haley as The One whom he'll share his future. But after witnessing a terrifying display of Micah's Gift, Haley cools to his advances and unexpectedly discovers her own Gift-- she can heal the earth. Monsters, mayhem, and teenage angst follow the small group as they confront evil in the forest and a dangerous prediction that 'one will fall'. Will they heal the rifts in time? Can they save the unicorns? And is Haley really destined to be with Micah?
Anyway back to the story...
Rift Healer was sweet, lovely and romantic but also exciting, magical and energetic. It was one of those books I had a really hard time putting down. I was addicted to the story. Micah has the reputation of a heart-breaker but one look of Haley in a photograph and he was head over heels. The journey of Haley and Micah's relationship is adorable. Being teenagers, I think most readers will be able to relate to them. We all love relatable characters. The story itself is fantastic. Mythical creatures, magic, the world in danger of being overun by "The Terrors", a traitor, romance, it's the perfect recipe for all of you fantasy lovers out there.
But I must mention a specific weapon of choice when it came to fight the monsters.... A water gun. This made me laugh. Totally unrealistic but do you know what? Who cares! It made it quirky and that little bit more original. Rift Healer won't disappoint and is definitely worth reading!
