Most of the action takes place ten years after 'Rift Runners: The Dark Divide.' The reality where Ren Kavanaugh, aka Rónán, aka Renkavana, and Trása accidently landed at the of 'Rift Runners:The Undivided' was a Ireland run by an Imperial Japan has been nicknamed the ninja reality and has become home to many magical creature like pixies, leiprecháns and faeries from other realities escaping the homicidal plans of the Matrarchaí, who want magic but don't want to share with any non-humans.

okaaay. So I was a big fan of this series when I started out. But this book just ruined everything
-The time jumps were horrible and made the story and the characters disconnected
-Previously important characters got dicked around and discarded
- Most characters got completely shit endings. Jack was sent to prison even though he was innocent and died there. Poor Brydie spent 10 fucking years trapped in an jewel only to be EXPLODED apart and die. Darragh

I've been hanging out for this final book in the series ever since I read the first two back to back last year. Interesting and compelling storyline and characters who make mistakes and then have to deal with the consquences. It's not an easy fix, but then I doubted it would be. Although this book is still Ren and Darragh's story, it's very much Pete and Logan's too.

I'm still getting my head around the ending. While I like the fact everything hasn't been tied up with a neat bow, it leaves me wi

Wow! What a page turner! Once I got into it I really couldn't stop. A brilliantly imagined world(s) with fantastic characters who at one point or another I wanted to both cheer and strangle. I loved all the banter between characters, some of it laugh out loud funny. I think the only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 was the ending. Someone described it as "unsettling" and that is exactly how I feel! I went into the epilogue thinking everything was resolved (kind of) and then! Bam! Out of now ...more

Jennifer Fallon is one of my favorite writers and as I learned that there is a new triology about to be published, I was very excited. However, knowing my hystory with her novels, I decided I had to wait until all three books are out so I can read them all in one wonderful weekend.

This book was not nearly as enjoyable as others written by Jennifer Fallon. Despite reading the first two books in the 'Rift Runner' series, I found the beginning really confusing and the overall pace of the book was far too slow.

Reading this novel was something of a tedious chore and I almost gave up several times.

The final quarter of the book *almost* made up for the uninspired start and middle and the ending was sort of OK. The main part of the story was satisfactorily resolved but I regrett

I felt the ending was rushed, as if the author wasn't really sure just how to end it.

This book doesn't take off from where The Dark Divide finished. After the prologue, in which we are introduced to Pete and Logan's home reality, the story jumps ahead three years to set up the rest of the book before skipping a further seven years into the future. It is here, ten years after the events of the last book that a majority of the plot takes place.

Once I started this book I could not put it down, reading most of it in a day. There's just something about Fallon's writing that captures

Reunion by Jennifer Fallon is the third book in the Rift Runners trilogy. You can read my review of the second book, The Dark Divide, but unfortunately I read the first book, The Undivided, before I started blogging. This review, by the way, contains only minor spoilers for the earlier books.

Jennifer Fallon has long been one of my favourite authors, a fact that I was strongly reminded of as I read Reunion. There is a certain amount of snarky wit to her writing that I didn't realise I had missed
I was really interested to see where this book was going and how everything was going to be resolved...the most disappointing thing? There is so much left unresolved and sudden new twists in the story in the epilogue (view spoiler). You can't randomly add new parts to the story in the epilogue!! Unl ...more

Finally getting around to my review!
Fantastic conclusion to an exciting, action packed and really interesting series :-).
Jennifer Fallow has been one of my favourite authors of fantasy for a while now and the Rift Runner series was up there with the Tide Lords series for me.
An original and intriguing take on the parallel universe theme, nicely combined with Irish/fae mythology.
Interesting, well developed characters and a truly skilful interweaving of multiple, very distinctively individ

Not sure why this was published in the States under a different author name, but after going all the way to Australia to buy the first two books (not kidding!) I was thrilled to find out that the series was available here at last.

Reunion is a really exciting finish to a fantastic series, but the ending left me really unsettled. Just when you thought there was closure and everything was coming to a (relatively) happy conclusion... well you just have to read it to find out.

Despite the ending, Rift

Bits are interesting but the storyline drraagggsss

The story in itself is well thought out but I get the feeling the author was reaching fill in spots just to make the story line longer, add more pages to her book. Maybe she had a contract for so many pages in her novel, so many words, kinda like this review is doing!!!
This was a five star book, with a one star ending. Like seriously, I hated everything in those last 3 chapters! It so didn't need to end like that! So I'm going to compromise and give it a three. Despite this however, it was a great story and I would still encourage you to finish the trilogy off.

i liked this book better than the previous too as it felt more adult. I have no issues with the young adult view but when reading an adult book I expect it to be adult characters and plot etc. The ending has left me wanting to know is there going to be another book or series.... or just left open?

I did not like the ending, it felt rushed. Without giving away the ending, one of the major events happened in a few paragraphs and there wasn't a lot of emotion or depth to the scene. That ruined the entire book for me.

A good ending to this novel. It's not Fallon's normal fare, that's much more fantasy based. I liked her other books better than this one. And hear she's going to write more in the Demon Child realm. Yah for that.

What can I say. An absolute AWESOME read. Bought the book on release day & finished the following day, I just couldn't put it down. So many twists & turns. One of the best trilogy sets I've read!! Highly recommended.

This book had many sub plots and twists.Difficult to keep up with all the characters.It is not a stand alone book.

Felt there were a few loose ends left untied. Is there a 4th book coming out?

Felt like a lot of loose ends for the final book in a trilogy, but I'm guessing there'll be another series at some point.

I felt that it got a bit silly towards the end and the end felt rushed and not very well thought out.

I'm so disappointed by this series; while the first book was interesting enough the story went nowhere and by the third book only the fact that Jennifer Fallon was the author kept me reading.
Kathy Schietinger
A wonderful, exciting, and captivating end to the trilogy, that leaves me desperately wanting more. What happens next? Will there be a new set of twins to force Partition? I need to know.

I did not like that ending.



It was not a good ending.

It is emotionally distressing.

Fuck this ending.
Steve Lane
Bit of a weak ending to an otherwise solid trilogy.
