We all become monsters at the edge of the breach. In a post-apocalyptic world where season of birth determines power — spring healers, summer mages, fall shapeshifters, and winter shields — a man and a woman emerge from tragic childhoods to lead humanity on opposite sides of an interrealm war.
There is a hole in the sky. They call it the Rift. A portal to the gods. The scar of a suffering world. Through it, the gods rule the last scraps of civilization, harkening war. As chaos beckons, two leaders emerge from the ashes of a dying planet.
Julian Kyder is the son of an abusive rape victim who compensates for his abandonment through psychopathy. Sira Rune is a cancer survivor who dedicates her life to living free and fearless while experiencing the taboo and the unorthodox. Rune is the only one unafraid of Kyder, and that terrifies him, because he only knows how to function through fear. Even though she gives him more chances than he deserves, how much violence can she forgive? When is a person beyond redemption? While he struggles to control his demons and she struggles to find purpose, the gods drag the ruined world into war.
CONTENT WARNING: The Rift Cycle is a highly graphic series intended for mature audiences.
“Immersive, emotional, savory writing. Brilliant storytelling. Impeccable crafting. An illuminating, enlivening, hot and dark velvety plait from the 71st century. Edge of the Breach is a rambunctious, riveting, cacophonous thwack to the heart-mind and gut. Scot has gifted us a novel; bore from artistry, intelligence and a vividly luxurious imagination. Magnifique, exceptionnel, superbe!”
