Title: Rage: Seventeen Series (Book 2)
Author: Suzanne Lowe
Category: YA Post Apocalyptic
“Revenge. It was all he could think about.
His body ached for it, burned for it like a relentless fire waiting to be quenched. It was all he wanted.”
With the KV17 virus now in its mutated form and the older children infected, Jasper’s Bay faces an uncertain future as they attempt to find a cure.
When old enemies return, causing tension and turmoil throughout the town, Lexi must face her fears and suppress the rage building inside her. Will the virus take hold or can she maintain control? How can you defeat an enemy when it is part of who you are?
The exciting and compelling YA series set in the harsh Australian outback.
A post apocalyptic Australia in which only the young survive….
As this is the sequel to book one, ‘Seventeen’, I felt a bit out of the loop at some points; I really needed to read book one first, but I got the gist! It’s a great concept and one that appealed to me. The KV17 virus is now in a mutated form, which means that older children are affected too; and protagonist Lexi has a lot to deal with.
This is a YA book, because of the age group of the main characters, but I’d say it could be read by older people, too (that’ll be me, then!). I’d say it’s a good introduction to the genre for those who are new to it, particularly younger people who may see Lexi and co as role models.
Recommended, but I’d advise reading book one first. Australian spelling and slang used, some mild violence.
I read Rage as part of the Damp Pebbles blog tour and received a copy of the book via the author in exchange for an honest review.
