Book Description

The impending galactic event that will invade and evolve our world is upon us and our salvation lies in the hands of Jesca and her fellowship of Dobrian guardians. The sadistic Sondian fellowship’s inhumane corruption of our world is spreading like wildfire, redrawing lines between allies and enemies. Jesca’s fortitude is put to the test when she must make crucial decisions in battle and in love. She must choose between the predestined link that she shares with one man and the unresolved attraction she holds for another.
Will Jesca have enough courage to surface the rim of this reality?

*The Piercing the Fold series is intended for Mature Young Adult and Adult readers due to the the paranormal and unorthodox scientific concepts addressed throughout. This series contains a rich mixture of the paranormal, science fiction, romance, adventure, and suspense. *

4.0 out of 5 stars And The Adventure Continues... 28 Jun. 2014
By Karen Joan - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
SURFACING THE RIM, by Venessa Kimball, is a follow on to her debut novel, Piercing the Fold. In this installment, Ms. Kimball's story telling abilities continue to grow and to shine. Her sci-fi plot draws the reader in, her characters make the reader care, and her pacing keeps the reader turning the pages well into the night. SURFACING THE RIM is definitely a worthy successor to Piercing the Fold.

SURFACING THE RIM picks up immediately where Piercing the Fold left off. Worlds are (literally) about to collide, and Jesca and the other Guardians of the Earth must protect humanity from the impeding doom. In this classic tale of good verses evil, who will win? Will Jesca live up to her ultimate potential and save them all?

Again, I want to repeat how wonderful a story teller I think Ms. Kimball is. She has the science fiction vibe just right: it is complex enough to feel real and simple enough to be believable. She adds unexpected twists and turns, which keep the reader involved. Her characters are sympathetic and interesting. Overall, I enjoyed SURFACING THE RIM as much as I did Piercing the Fold.

My one critic of SURFACING THE RIM is the lack of transition from book 1 to book 2. As I previously stated, SURFACING THE RIM starts off immediately after Piercing the Fold ends. However, there is no real introduction or transition between the two books, no recap of what went on before in book 1. Now if you are reading these two books back to back, that is not a real issue. But if has been, say, 6 months since you read the first book, or if for some reason you read SURFACING THE RIM first, it is hard to follow what is going on. We all need a little mind jog for continuity in SURFACING THE RIM, and that is the on feature that I found lacking. Once I got into SURFACING THE RIM and remembered the details of Piercing the Fold, I had no trouble following SURFACING THE RIM. But I would have appreciated a few nudges for continuity's sake.

Cant' wait for book 3. Keep 'em coming, Venessa.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stellar Sequel to a Great Series 15 Mar. 2013
By Penelope Anne Bartotto - Published on
When a person learns that an author is doing a series there is always a concern that the second book won't live up to the legend of the first book. Never fear folks, that is not the case here. Kimball not only matches Piercing the Fold's success with Surfacing the Rim, I feel she surpasses it. Thus with at least one more book to come in the series I can only see things getting better. The character development is stronger, the plot line more solid, and the story flows very well. The first book was marketed to more of a New Adult crowd, but I truly believe that this series is a best deemed a Young Adult Category. Maybe a minor disclaimer for mature situations. I would happily endorse this series for a teen book club though.

Format:Kindle Edition
Even better than the first! Picking up right where we left off in book 1, I was excited to see what was in store for Jesca & her friends. Through their travels we learn so much about the Dobrians & Sondians. Kimball also gives a greater understanding of the guardians & their role in keeping things in order here on earth. Sci-Fi fans are sure to enjoy this Adventure! I'm looking forward to book 3, Ascending the Veil!
