Authors: Krista and Becca Ritchie 
Pages: 352
Publishing: August 14th 2018 by Wednesday Books

Synopsis: In a freezing world, where everyone knows the day they will die, three teens break all odds. 

Franny Bluecastle, a tough city teen, dreams of dying in opulence, to see wealth she’s never known. Like the entire world, she believes it’s impossible to dodge a deathday. 

Until the day she does. 

Court Icecastle knows wealth. He also knows pain. Spending five years in Vorkter Prison, a fortress of ice and suffering, he dreams of life beyond the people that haunt him and the world that imprisoned him. 

Mykal Kickfall fights for those he loves. The rugged Hinterlander shares a frustrating yet unbreakable connection with Court—which only grows more lawless and chaotic as their senses and emotions connect with Franny. 

With the threat of people learning they’ve dodged their deathdays, they must flee their planet to survive. But to do so, all three will have to hide their shared bond as they vie for a highly sought after spot in the newest mission to space. Against thousands of people far smarter, who’ll live longer, and never fear death the way that they do.


I went into this novel completely open minded because I knew it was a new genre for Krista and Becca. The science fiction genre is one I typically enjoy, but I didn't want to get my hopes up! But let me tell you, I'm so glad I picked this novel up. It is so different from every other book I've read and I was so happy to finally read a YA sci-fi novel that didn't follow along with every other YA cliche. The Raging Ones was an incredible read from start to finish and I was constantly engaged with each of the characters. 

All three main characters in the novel were so incredibly complex and I loved how the reader was able to learn something new about them in each chapter. They all had twisted backstories that added to their intrigue and emotional pull. The writing was fantastic and kept me on the edge of my seat from start to finish. The pacing was on point and I really enjoyed that the authors didn't go overboard with fancy science jargon. 

All in all, The Raging Ones was a fantastic read from start to finish. It was filled with action and tons of emotions that I didn't even know I could feel! I would highly recommend this novel and I can't wait for the second book. Thank you to Wednesday Books and NetGalley for sending this novel in exchange for an honest review. 

Rating 4/5
