  • A tight, amazing thrill ride!

    Konn Lavery is a master of atmospheric urban thrills, and Rave is likely his best yet. A whodunit wrapped in the supernatural(?), a glimpse into a time and place you can almost feel, and enough visceral moments to make you a bit queasy, but still turn the page to see what happens. It really is the perfect balance. Great job, Konn!

  • A gory and thrilling ride!

    Rave is a fast paced, blood soaked ride through a horrific turn of events for a group of friends, simply looking for an escape from reality. The author does a brilliant job of submerging the reader instantly and completely into the drug induced world of the rave scene. A mysterious and terrifying beast-human interrupts their plan. The story is gripping, the characters are cool and interesting, and the tension is high. Warning: if you pick up Rave, you won't be able to put it down.

  • Be warned: the gore will jump out at you

    A terrifying book set in Canada that shows you life isn't going to be what you expect. Seth is a young man kind of going through the motions. Not certain in his sexuality, no clue for his future, no clue what to do, no clue where to go. Seth simply lives for his next high, the next rave and the next make-out session. Add to him a small cadre of similarly lost youth and add a serial killer and watch the fun unfold. This book was a scream. It really, at times, makes one wonder what they did last summer. A very, very accurate portrayal of the rave lifestyle of the late '90s. You can feel you are in the underbelly of society in British Colombia. At times, the gore can really grip a reader. The sense of being hunted leaves a reader on edge. A well-written book, Rave sits well in the thriller genre. Take a journey into the hazy world of raves and then watch out for the sharp knife. Recommended to fans of slasher films and books. Disclaimer: I received a copy from the author in the hopes I'd review it. My Rating: 5 stars

  • Fantastic

    First off I have to say this isn't the kind of book I would usually read but it did sound interesting so I decided to give it a shot. I am so glad I did give it a read because I did actually enjoyed it. Rave is set in British Columbia and I have lived in British Columbia for 4 years (and fell in love with the Province) so that was one reason why I wanted to read Rave. This horror book has a great pace and you don't have any problems imagining the story. This book is intense and gory but I loved every minute of the book. I do recommend this one.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Intriguing story

    Reviewed by Joanne Ang for Readers' Favorite Rave is a work of adult fiction written by Konn Lavery. The story starts with Seth, a young adult who graduated from high school some years back. Ever since then, Seth has been headed in the wrong direction in life, mixing with questionable crowds of people, and always looking for the next best party to get buzzed and hook up with a certain someone… or anyone for that matter. This desperation leads Seth and his gang straight into an unexplainable crime scene, and things keep going downhill from there. Stuck with the dilemma between calling for help and risking being imprisoned, or fleeing the scene and escaping this complicated path somehow, can Seth and his gang find a way out of this screwed-up mess? Rave by Konn Lavery was spectacularly written. I really enjoyed reading about Seth’s questionable lifestyle habits that kept on getting him into sticky situations between lust and drugs. His even more complicated upbringing in his aunt’s household gave the character a deeper meaning as to why he became the way he was, adding complexity to the storyline which I appreciate greatly. I loved the gory details of the murders that gave crystal-clear imagery and more attitude to the plot. Rave had tons of twists and turns that kept me wanting more from the book, and I genuinely couldn’t stop reading! The additional illustrations between certain chapters were also a very nice touch, one which I found heightened my emotional engagement and enabled me to reflect on what had happened between each chapter. I would recommend Konn Lavery's Rave to anyone looking for an intriguing and mind-boggling novel to read!
