Unveiling Sabina Staley: The Enigmatic Leader of the Rifters #fantasy #steampunk #booklover

Sabina Staley is the indomitable head of the Rifters, the well-loved guardian entrusted with the safety of Earth.

the popular fantasy steampunk series, the Rifters

Sabina’s is the county commissioner of Caslow County. That’s how most of the residents know her. The county building is located in Settler, Oregon, where the veil between universes thins each year, revealing a portal traversing 42 realms, including our own. As the liaison between Earth and the mysterious Governors who rule the rift, Sabina embodies both the sophistication of a seasoned diplomat and the resilience of a seasoned warrior.

In her late 60s, Sabina’s countenance tells tales of experiences etched into the very fabric of her being. Tall and possessing stern, well-defined facial features, her captivating emerald eyes harbor a depth that belies her prim and proper exterior. Adorned with a crown of curly white hair and oversized, bubble-framed eyeglasses, her appearance seems a symphony of timeless grace intertwined with a touch of the 1970s.

Yet, it’s her spirit that truly captivates. Despite the years, her essence radiates with an undying youthfulness, an unquenchable flame that has weathered trials and remains unyielding. Behind the guise of her dignified demeanor lies a history steeped in valor and unexpected passions—a tale once whispered of an affair with a centaur that crossed through the rift, a fleeting moment from a past brimming with untold stories.

Within the Rifters, Sabina stands as the beacon of reliability and confidence. Her unwavering leadership has shielded her team, ensuring no losses under her watch. While she seldom joins the fray, her tactical prowess and strategic mind guide her team’s actions, and her meticulous planning is often the key to their victories.

But it’s not just her tactical genius that commands respect; it’s her unwavering dedication to her comrades. A tough but caring leader, she instills confidence in every Rifter. Her presence is a source of reassurance among the chaos of defending Earth from otherworldly threats.

Sabina Staley is a conundrum of contradictions—an epitome of grace and strength, of sophistication and wild pasts, of leadership and a warrior’s heart. She embodies the essence of the Rifters, standing as a testament to resilience, integrity, and the unyielding spirit required to safeguard Earth from the mysteries that spill forth from the rift.

The Gold Rush trickles to a fool’s quest and a string of stagecoach heists. In 1888, Earl Blacke decides to make a new start and become a better man. He escapes into the mountains, heading north. In the wilds of Oregon, a rift inside an ancient volcano opens and sends him into the future, into the present day. It also shaves forty years off his age, forty years to live over again and atone for what he’s done.

Starting over is hard to do. In current day New York, Daelin Long’s dream job at a publishing house goes the way of the dinosaurs her sister chases. With no money and nowhere else to go, Daelin accepts the librarian position in her sister’s dinky town in the middle of Oregon. Nestled inside ancient volcanic peaks, the town of Settler holds onto many secrets. Residents roam the streets with weirdly fashioned devices, and odd lights pulse in the night skies. People whisper of a phantom outlaw and start dying, murdered and missing their heads. On top of it all, Daelin’s sister is missing, and Daelin doesn’t know who to trust.

Earl knows more than he’s saying. He shares a notorious history with the phantom, one he’ll see remains buried. Keeping Daelin’s sister’s secrets is his only chance at redemption, and the only way to keep this world safe.

 

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
