    Different and complex

    The Raging Ones by Krista and Becca Ritchie is an interesting alternate future novel. When everyone knows when they will die it effects how they live. Those who will have long lives are considered influential, while those who won't be around long are the dregs of society. But what happens when the ultimate impossibility happens? What happens when death doesn't come on the scheduled date? Franny Bluecastle's plans for her last goodbye get messed up when she can't get he deathday funds. Then to top things off she wakes up the day after. Which is not supposed to happen and that is just the beginning of how crazy her life, which was supposed to be over, is becoming. Court Icecastle was not the kind of person who was supposed to die young, but his fate said he would, until he didn't and when he finds himself bonded somehow to Mykal Kickfall who wasn't supposed to make it past childhood he starts to plan an escape from those who object to those who dodge the plan. Escape to space. When Franny gets connected to Court and Mykal's bond things get even more complicated. They want to get off the planet, but leaving one of their trio behind is just not possible. As Franny comes to grips with her new reality and the quest that Court and Mykal have set, the adventure they undertake is one of finding who she really is and what she really could become. Krista and Becca Ritchie have created an intriguing world with fascinating characters to match. The vivid descriptions are counter point to the harsh reality all around. Franny, Court and Mykal are all unique characters who add to the whole of their bond. Overall I very much enjoyed The Raging Ones and recommend this book as a fascinating and complex read. (I voluntarily reviewed an advance review copy of this book I received for free from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for my open and honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.)

    Captivating and enthralling!

    What a fantastic story! The Raging Ones is a uniquely captivating tale that kept me enthralled from the first page to the last. Krista and Becca Ritchie have created a world I loved getting lost in and I cannot wait to go back! But it just wasn't just the world I loved, it was the characters most of all! Court, Mykal, and Franny were such compelling personalities, I have a soft spot for each of them. Each so strong in their own ways, yet deeply vulnerable as well. Court and Mykal thought it was them against the world, the only 2 people with a soul deep connection and an unbreakable bond, until they cross paths with Franny and realize she's one of them, in more ways than one. Having "dodged" their death days, the three must now figure out how to survive in an unforgiving world, without giving away their secrets. With a plan in mind, Court is determined to save the three of them so that they can live life free and safe. And this is where the story really shines. The world building was incredible and I felt like I was right there with Court, Mykal, and Franny as they fought so desperately to escape the life they were previously destined to live. I really was completely enchanted by this story and the characters. It was a slow-burn, yet action packed fascinating tale. I loved the subtle undercurrent of the romance between Court and Mykal, you could feel it there, simmering just below the surface. But what was most important in this story was the friendship and trust they all had to have for one another. They needed that connection in order to survive. I'm so anxious for book two, as the Ritchie sisters really know how to pull off a cliffhanger! Well done ladies, well done. This is definitely a favorite of 2018.
