On the surface The Raging Ones is a story about knowing the date of one’s death and the effects that has on a society. Yet, in truth, this novel is more like a classical science fiction space opera. While I was not expecting this, it was much appreciated. It is hard to talk to much about the plot without giving too much away, so I will stop.
This novel is well written. I had a hard time putting it down and when I read I was swept away. The world was well defined with it being build up throughout the story, when appropriate. The characters were all real and unique. Although, their connection to each other was difficult to read at times I thought the writers did an excellent job describing and not over relating.
The plot was grasping right up to the end of the novel. I both hated and loved how it ended. I did not truly come to terms with it until I knew that it would not be a stand alone novel. It truly felt like a new take on classic science fiction that was just short of being one of the great novels. I look forward to reading more of Krista and Becca Ritchie.
