In the quaint little town of Crystal Falls, surrounded by the majestic Rocky Mountains, a storm is brewing….

As the tight-knit community fights to survive a blizzard like no other, more sinister threats, dark and duplicitous, lurk just out of sight.

Embarking upon his first official mission, Ra sees himself as a rescuer, a hero, a man whose selfless efforts will save untold lives and ensure a future where his people will flourish for generations to come.

As he carries out his duties, he’s forced to face the cruel duality of good and evil. Firsthand, he witnesses that actions, no matter how noble the intent, can trigger disastrous outcomes, some irreversible.

Struggling to undo what he’s done, Ra finds in himself a surprising capacity for empathy and discovers an emotion he’s willing to die for – love.

In this electrically charged page-turner, David Maxwell, author of the highly rated Rebirth, takes us into an all-too-possible dystopian world where one group’s solution for survival threatens to destroy the lives of another.

The Drift is a heart-pounding science fiction thriller where evolutionary decline and technological advancement collide with social justice and the innate desire for self-preservation.


Stunning science fiction thriller… If you read only one book this year, make sure it’s The Drift by David Maxwell.” – Readers’ Favorite

So much fun to read! From the beginning chapters, my heart was racing and I couldn’t get through the pages fast enough. The suspense builds as the characters come to life, leaving the reader anxiously wondering what their fate will be. I found myself really worrying about the sweet and relatable citizens of Crystal Falls! That anxiety grew as the story unfolded, with twists and turns that I never could have dreamed up. The plot is fascinating and thought-provoking, whether you are a science fiction fan or not. David Maxwell did an excellent job of drawing the reader into the story, eliciting the reader’s concern and interest in his characters, keeping the reader on the edge of their seat, creating a unique and entertaining plot, and wrapping it all up in a perfect way. As I read this book, I could envision every bit of it on the big screen. It would make such a great movie! I really enjoyed this book and encourage everyone to give it a try! – Lindsay Asawa

Okay, wow. I read David Maxwell’s first novel, Rebirth, and enjoyed it. With The Drift, the author has really won me over.

The plot was fantastic, well thought out and surprising. There were plenty of times during the course of the story that I had reservations (“How can this be?”) and I was afraid that the answers would either be unsatisfactory or completely missing. I was so happy to discover that all the questions that occurred to me throughout the book (and believe me, plenty of questions get raised!) ended up not only being answered, but answered in a way that was not just satisfying but perfect. And all that without being at all predictable.

Having said all that about the plot (and I refuse to say more because in this book it would be way too easy to give a spoiler – I think it will be far better for the reader to come to the various plot revelations just as I did!), I don’t think I can say enough about the characterization. There are a lot of characters in this book, major and minor – a whole town’s worth. The author brings each of them their own personality and makes you feel you know them. Not only are the characters themselves vivid and believable, but the town of Crystal Falls is itself a character, fully and richly realized. In fact, the storm that descends on Crystal Falls at the beginning of the book is a well-wrought character in itself.

Oh yeah, and I cried at the end (happy tears). You know you’ve got me when I get that involved in a story.

The Drift was a journey well worth taking and I strongly recommend it to lovers of science fiction, intricate plotting and great characters. Well done! – Davyne DeSye


For far too long, Artimus has suffered in silence. Today, that changes. He will languish in loneliness no more. She will be his!

Abigail wakes, from an indeterminate period of slumber, vulnerable and exposed, in a situation that defies all reason. Greeted by an unseen host with unknowable intentions, she struggles for understanding.

Memories, as elusive as comprehension, coming back in broken fragments, prompt more questions than answers. Unable to answer them on her own, she turns to her ominous host only to be given explanations she can’t begin to fathom. How she got here, who brought her here, and why may forever remain a mystery.

When Abi discovers that she’s not alone in this living nightmare, she finds comfort in numbers and an unexpected connection evolves. As their host reveals one incomprehensible revelation after another, the displaced group fights together to uncover the truth.

In his debut science fiction thriller, Rebirth, David Maxwell takes us on a high-tension journey where the fate of humanity rests in the mind of an artificial super intelligence.


“…I could not stop reading this book. (Can’t) wait for the sequel.”Kindle Reader

“I found Rebirth engrossing…. The computer reminded me very much of the HAL 9000 model in the film 2001 (based on Arthur C. Clarke’s book of the same name) …. David Maxwell presents a fascinating if somewhat frightening look at Artificial Intelligence and its interaction with the human variety, a subject currently much discussed in scientific circles as we approach the capacity of creating the first thinking computers.”
Charles Remington, Readers’ Favorite

“…I had been reading other books at the time…I put all other books aside and basically finished the whole book in one sitting.”
Kindle Reader

“This book hooked me from page one. It is brilliantly written, well researched, and impeccably edited. David Maxwell is a force to be reckoned with. I am eagerly awaiting the next installment.”
