  • Becca Ritchie
    This book has our heart & soul, and we're so incredibly grateful that Wednesday Books, our editor, and agent, took a chance on this sci-fi/fantasy romance. Our writing is a bit raw, a bit visceral, and we can't wait for all of you to feel what Court, Mykal, and Franny feel. Publishing a YA novel has been our childhood dream, and after almost a decade worth of trying to get one published, it's finally happening: 8.14.18 -- thank you all for the su...

    Thank you to NetGalley & Wednesday Books for sending me an ARC of this book.When I started this, I had pretty low expectations. I read the premise and my love triangle senses started tingling. The average YA book would do that when there are three main characters--two male and one female. The average YA book would make the female character torn between the two hot guys vying for her affection, and the males are only there to be each other's rival...

    Apparently, I won’t have to quit Goodreads and swear off books, after all. (rtc)*I can’t even put into words how excited I am to have received an ARC of The Raging Ones, which was written by two of my favorite authors, who, incidentally, also sent me the first ARC I ever received that made it on to my favorites shelf!!Honestly, if I don’t end up giving this book at least four stars, I might as well quit Goodreads and swear off books forever...

    The Raging Ones follows the story of 3 teens in a world where they find themselves with an unbreakable link; connected through another's senses, thoughts, actions, and emotions. This is the Ritchie sisters’ first YA novel to be released August 14, 2018. In this world the authors created, death is the norm. I think the idea alone of knowing when you die is fascinating. It makes you question what you would do with your time if you knew exactly wh...

    ★5 Stars! The Raging Ones... is beyond unique and special. It is mesmerizing, addictive, amusing, captivating, fascinating and impressive!Rating: { ★★★★★ }“You’ve stolen my heart, you little crook.” His smile only stretches further and brighter. “My most valuable theft.”Before I begin I have to that this is exactly why Becca and Krista Ritchie are some of my favorite authors.They write and build such incredible and unforgett...

    I don't read much science fiction or fantasy because it never seems to hold my interest. However, if Krista and Becca Ritchie write it, I'm going to read it. Due to the genre I was nervous, but I should have known that I could trust the dynamic duo to deliver. The beginning was a little slow as I was learning about the world and the characters, but then it picked up steam and I was hooked. It was unique, engaging, and perhaps most important for m...

    4.5 Officially!We found each other in the winter wood. He threw his arms around me like I’d been his long-lost friend. I hugged him like I was meeting my soul again. There are some moments and some feelings that I can’t even explain. I’m a young man of medicine and science and logic, but the sentiments I wield for Mykal transcend all three.Dang you guys this was good. I mean I don’t know why I ever was worried because I have read and love...
  • Kristy K
    This is probably one of the hardest reviews I’ve had to write. The Raging Ones was a top 5 release for me this year and I was exhilarated when I got an ARC, but I ended up being so disappointed. My expectations were so high, after all the Ritchies are arguably my favorite NA romance writers, but I spent most of my time being bored and waiting for something happen.I have so many questions (see below) that went unanswered and I can only hope they...

    a special thank you goes out to Netgalley and Wednesday Books for allowing me to read an eARC of this book! All thoughts and opinions are my own. tw: drug use, death of a parentScience fiction is so great. And even though I have only read a little bit of it, I think it's the bees knees because literally anything is possible because it's science. (I now have that guy from that 80's song screaming "SCIENCE!" stuck in my head) This concept-of knowin...

    **ARC provided by publisher in exchange for an honest review**I don't read many YA/Scifi novels, however I trust Krista and Becca unconditionally so I didn't hesitate picking up this book. I was not disappointed! The world they created was very original and intrigued me a lot. I was looking forward to learning more and more about the characters and their lives. I loved the idea of a bond/link between Court, Franny and Mykal. But I also enjoyed th...

    I'm definitely the black sheep of the current ARC reviews because all I can say is : what the actual hell did I just read. "We're a mess.""We're together."I have a feeling THE RAGING ONES might be one of those stories that makes more sense in the final wrap-up. Because right now it's a mix of Sense8, Armageddon, THEY BOTH DIE AT THE END, and DARE MIGHTY THINGS. Which sounds hella interesting, and totally up my alley because I love all of those th...

    Franny and Court should have been dead before 29. Mykal before 8. Yet, somehow, they managed to dodge their deathdays. In a word in which everyone knows the precise day that they will die, if anyone knew that they had survived, it would likely mean their deaths. Connected by a mysterious bond, they will do whatever it takes to raise the money for a chance to leave their ice-covered world to be able to live among the stars.So, we have two guys –...

    This was such a great compelling, action-packed read! I loved every minute of it!I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own

    I don't read a lot of sci-fi and I have never read a YA one. That said... I am a huge fan of these two awesome authors, so there was no way I wasn't going to read this one !!This book is about Franny, Court and Mykal, who share an amazing bond. (think sense8...which I loved btw) What's so different about their world, is that everyone knows the day they are gong to die. It's also cold as fuck !! The moment you are born, you also know when you wil...

    I’m a huge Krista and Becca Ritchie fan, but they are known for their New Adult books so it’s always nice to see authors branching into a different genre. The Ragging Ones could be described as only in one word… Different. I haven’t read anything like this and I think a reviewer mentioned there was another book about people knowing when they will die, so I might have to check that book out.I started to read The Raging Ones and I’ll be h...
  • Melanie (mells_view)
    A couple things the Ritchie twins do amazingly well without fail are world building and connecting characters. The Raging Ones is no exception to this fact. Franny, Court, and Mykal are three characters living in a snowy, cold, violet smoke clouded world, where everyone knows the very day they will die. Each of our mains have reached and survived that day. Which SHOULD be an impossibility, but for them... it was not. On top of all that, once they...

    [lily calloway voice] thankyouthankyouthankyou netgalley for this opportunity. I loved this book. So. Much. I am a huge fan of Krista and Becca's books and writing style and I have to say THEY DIDN'T DISAPPOINT ME. I couldn't put it down. I was absolutely hooked. A plot I've never read before. I AM SO CURIOUS TO SEE WHAT WILL HAPPEN NOW. I want the second book!!!!The main reason i love KB's books are the characters. The deep connection you feel w...

    I reviewed an ARC provided by the publisher and NetGalley.I've never really read anything in this genre, but The Raging Ones quickly became the book I didn't know I needed.How would you live your life if you knew when its end was coming?The imagery created by the Ritchie twins takes you to this futuristic, mystical land completely wrapped up in a class system based on someone's predetermined death date. You can close your eyes and see clouds of l...

    WOW! This was incredible! The premise of the book is extremely unique and so refreshing – it’s unlike anything you’ve read before! I’m already a fan of the authors, so I was pretty sure I’d like this book because I like their writing style, but I didn’t really know what to expect since this is their first YA sci-fi book. I was really pleasantly surprised and I ended up loving this a lot more than I thought I would! The plot is really ...

    The world-building, or universe-building, was done phenomenally. There's a lot of information - more about that later on - but it's needed to get all your questions answered on how everything came to be the way it is in The Raging Ones. How do people find themselves in such permanent cold? How come there's this huge division between Babes, Fast Trackers and Influentials? What's the difference between the three? All those questions are answered a...

    * * * *4 / 5~review to come~http://atlasrisingbooks.wordpress.comThe Raging Ones was a fantastic read. It was so creative – set in a frozen world with a lilac sky where each individual knows which day they will die on – and the characters were so compelling. Massive kudos for not including a love triangle between the two male characters and the female one and having a gay romance instead
