What I’m Reading – Wednesday: Mojave Rift (ArcPoint #1) by J. W. Gilbert

What Are You Reading Wednesday was created by Rhianna, Marissa, and Kendall. The idea is to create a space for book lovers to share, discuss, and recommend the books they are currently reading and loving. All you have to do is answer the questions about your current read and then head over to one of the host’s sites to link up your post! Have fun and don’t forget to check out everyone’s posts as well!

Arcon’s people have been trapped for a century in a dense forest.

He wants out.

There is a world waiting for him to discover. And Elaina. Blocking his way is a huge canyon called the Rift. His people forbid him to get near it. Her people are forbidden to cross it. God help him.

Mojave Rift is a speculative look at the future of mankind, combining down-to-earth science with Bible prophecy.
Filled with action and adventure, this post-apocalyptic tale avoids the murder and mayhem of a typical dystopian setting. Where suspicion and fear once divided us, discovery of truth seeks to unite.

Release Date: June 1, 2020

Author’s website:


1. Why did you decide to pick up this book–cover or con

Content? I was offered the chance to read the second one for review, so I’m quickly reading this one to get caught up before starting on the sequel. So far it’s an entertaining read!

2. Who is your favorite character so far, and why?

Um, Arcon? We haven’t really been introduced to many of the characters yet, and the few we have met were super brief intros with little actual content between them before moving on to the next group. Once Arcon makes hi treacherous journey, I assume we’ll get more actual character time.

3. Will you finish this one?

Yeah, I plan to.

4. This book reminds me of…

I don’t know yet… It’s unique, so it’s a bit harder to compare this to past reads.

5. What type of read is this one? (Slow but interesting, cannot put it down…)

Its not fast-paced, but not really slow either. A good medium, but interesting and I’m curious to see what happens!

FINAL THOUGHTS ON: Eubeltic Descent by Nadine C. Keels

I ended up loving Eubeltic Descent the first in Nadine Keels’ Eubeltic Realm trilogy! It started out a little slow, but quickly picked up pace and I adored meeting Daun and his sister!
