THE RAGING ONES follows three teens who should have died young: Franny Bluefort, a young orphan who lived fast and hard, only to wake up the next morning after her death day in the cold, unforgiving city streets; Mykal Kickfall, who was meant to die at 8 but instead was forced to flee his rugged home to avoid questions of his survival; and Court Icefort, the mysterious boy who acts like an Influential, but has a terrible secret. And, for some inexplicable reason, they can feel each other’s emotions as if they were their own.
With the threat of people learning the teens have dodged their deathdays, they must flee their planet, Saltare-3, to survive. Who knows what will happen if people suddenly think they might be able to escape death? 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 who are far smarter, will live longer, and will never fear death the way that they do.

Review of The Raging Ones
Review (4 Stars): I really enjoyed the Raging Ones because it was an interesting premise to know the exact day that you were going to die. The characters were well-written and you instantly connected to each of them while trying to figure out why they survived past their death day. I loved how these characters felt like family because of their connection to one another and I think that if you had Court by your side, you could get through anything.
This is the first book in a new series and I’m curious to see what happens next for these characters. The Raging Ones was a smart, entertaining sci-fi thriller that you won’t be able enough of so bring on the sequel now!
