Unveiling the Mystique of Dante Grimes in The Rifter Series #fantasy #steampunk #scifi #sciencefiction

 

In the fantastical world of The Rifter series, where steampunk aesthetics meet magical rifts, one character stands out with an aura of mystery and power—Dante Grimes. As a Governor, Dante holds a position of authority where the rift is concerned. But Dante is not your typical ruler, nor your typical librarian; he harbors secrets that could shake the foundation of Settler.

The Disguised Governor

Dante Grimes wears the cloak of normalcy with finesse. In his assumed identity, he appears as a mild-mannered older gentleman managing the county library. Little does the world know that behind this façade lies a being of immense power and intrigue. Only a select few, including Earl Blacke, Daelin Long, and Charming Moon Knight, are privy to Dante’s true origins—he hails from the rift itself.

Otherworldly Appearance

When Dante sheds his disguise, he reveals a form that transcends mortal beauty. With skin as blue as the deepest seas and tattoos of chrome that ripple beneath the surface as he channels his rift-based abilities, Dante presents a visage akin to that of a god. His long silver hair, composed of ethereal leaves, adds an otherworldly charm to his already striking presence.

Master of the Rift

Dante Grimes is not just a Governor; he is a master manipulator of the rift. His talents extend beyond the conventional, allowing him to traverse time and space effortlessly. He orchestrated the arrival of Earl Blacke from 1888 into the present day, as well as the appearance of Daelin’s ancestor from Revolutionary War times. Yet, his motives remain shrouded in secrecy.

The Puzzling Agenda

What drives Dante Grimes to weave the threads of time and bring individuals from different eras into the present? No one, not even those closest to him, fully understands his motives. He persistently urges Earl Blacke to become his general, insisting that without an army, Earth’s universe is doomed. However, the identity of the impending enemy remains a closely guarded secret, known only to Dante himself.

A Sandwich Shop Proprietor

After relinquishing his librarian position, Dante adopts the guise of a sandwich shop owner located 90 minutes from Settler. It is here that Daelin Long first encounters him. Despite attempting to keep a low profile, Dante’s presence is marked by an undeniable air of authority and an aura of unresolved destiny.

Tormenting Earl Blacke

Dante’s relentless pursuit of Earl Blacke as his potential general adds a layer of tension to the series. He remains insistent, undeterred by Earl’s resistance, compelling him to accept a role that may decide the fate of not just Settler, but the entire universe.

As readers delve deeper into “The Rifter” series, Dante Grimes emerges as a captivating enigma—a character whose motives, powers, and connection to the rift continue to intrigue. The path he treads is paved with secrets, and as the series unfolds, one can’t help but wonder: What lies at the heart of Dante’s cosmic machinations?

A gripping saga of monsters and Earth’s desperate fight for survival. The Rifters Box Collection: Books 1-3, now available at an incredible price of just 99 cents!

popular science fiction fantasy series The Rifters

Discover the Rifters

The Rifters Box Collection is a captivating trilogy set in the enigmatic town of Settler, Oregon, where a monstrous secret lurks in the backwoods—an ancient portal that connects our world to a staggering forty-two other universes. These visitors, though often terrifying, have had unintended, devastating effects on our world. But recently, their destruction has taken a more deliberate turn.

Meet the Heroes

At the heart of this fantasy steampunk series are two unlikely heroes who must rise to the challenge of defending Earth against the growing threat from the other universes. Daelin Long, a librarian with a unique gift for communicating with ghosts, must join forces with an outlaw from 1888 to protect our world from the impending doom. Their weapons are crafted from coils, gears, and crystals.

The Rifters Box Collection Includes 3 Monstrous Books

  1. The Rifters: Daelin Long, seeking a fresh start after a traumatic incident in New York City, takes on the role of a county librarian in Settler, Oregon. However, her sparkling, new life is marred by the mysterious disappearance of her younger sister and a series of gruesome murders where peope in town are missing their heads. Daelin soon stumbles upon Settler’s deepest and darkest secrets, leading her down a path of unimaginable peril.
  2. The Initiate: Daelin Long joins the Rifters, hoping to uncover clues about her lost sister’s whereabouts. Instead, she confronts an unprecedented menace—a swarm of killer bees like no other. These bees begin as harmless pebbles but deliver fiery stings that can prove deadly. Her first lesson with the Rifters is clear: absolute trust in her fellow protectors. However, Daelin holds her sister’s secrets close to her heart, and this trust isn’t easily reciprocated.
  3. The Reader: As Daelin Long rises through the ranks of the Rifters, the rift closes for the season. Her sister remains trapped on the other side, and with the rift sealed, the town should be quiet. Instead, a new nightmare unfolds as ghosts come to life, and the townsfolk mysteriously disappear. Daelin and the Rifters face their greatest challenge yet, fighting a relentless monster without the energy of the rift to power their extraordinary weapons.

Reviews

“The world Pax creates here is like the Wild West meets Ghostbusters with some Stargate and a bit of Steampunk thrown in. Even though everything seems a bit familiar, it’s not, which is what makes it compelling.”CHOOSE YOUR OWN END

“This book catapults the reader right in mid-events and, like Daelin, one is forever trying to figure out the ins and outs of the situation. Though readers have one advantage in that we are prepared to believe. However, what in some books can be annoying, becomes an enjoyable ride, where you are constantly excited to see where the plot will take you next. I really enjoyed the slightly wacky and off center world of Settler.” AMAZON

Earl Blacke: A Complex Journey of Redemption in the Rifters Series #fantasy #Booktwitter #steampunk

In the richly woven tapestry of the Rifters series, a character of enigmatic depth and haunting past emerges — Earl Blacke. As integral to the narrative as the protagonist Daelin Long, Earl’s story unveils a complex journey of redemption, atonement, and the ties that bind past and present.

from the popular steampunk fantasy the rifters

Earl Blacke’s Twisted Past

Earl’s tale begins not in the present day, but in the year 1888, when he traversed the rift and emerged in the present as a man who defied time itself. In his former life, Earl was notorious — the infamous outlaw known as Black Bart. His reputation as a cunning and audacious criminal painted a picture of a man who reveled in chaos.

The Struggle for Redemption

Earl’s transition from a 70-year-old outlaw in 1888 to a rejuvenated 30-year-old in the present brings with it a profound desire to atone for his past. One of the most poignant threads in Earl’s story is his attempt to reconcile with the family he left behind, his wife and daughters. Among their descendants is Charming Moon Knight, a pivotal character in the Rifters series and Daelin Long’s missing sister. Earl’s connection to Charming goes beyond bloodlines — it’s a chance for him to make amends and find the family he lost. However, the intricate interplay of fate and legacy is fraught with complications.

Unveiling Deeper Truths

Earl’s journey towards redemption takes a compelling turn as he finds himself linked to the rift. His actions are guided not only by his personal quest for redemption but also by a higher purpose. A mysterious being from the rift utilizes Earl as a reluctant warrior, enlisting his aid to fend off the encroaching forces of evil that threaten to engulf the world.

Earl’s Evolution in the Modern Era

In a world where past and present collide, Earl Blacke’s journey is a testament to the power of redemption, the complexities of morality, and the unbreakable threads of family and lineage. The Rifters series weaves a story that challenges perceptions and definitions.
