All the Rage was not at all what I expected. I liked it and I really enjoyed the characters. Which felt pretty uncomfortable.
They call me Rage.
My real name is like a shadow, always close behind, but never quite able to catch up.
I fly under the radar because no one ever suspects I’m capable of the kind of brutal violence I commit each and every day.
You see, I’m a girl. I’m nineteen.
And I'm a killer.
This life is all I know. It’s all I want to know. It keeps the shit buried that I need kept buried. It allows me to live without thinking too much.
Without dwelling on the past.
It all changes when an ordinary boy becomes my next target.
And my first love.
I have to choose.
The only life I’ve ever known has to die, or he does.
Either way, I’ll be the one pulling the trigger...
The main character is Rage – she’s a sociopath. But she’s a sociopath on a journey to finding love and acceptance. Her path is not the path of a sociopath trying to do the right thing. No, she’s embracing all that makes her someone I should hate. She’s a killer, it’s who she wants to be. So no, her journey to love and acceptance is finding someone else who shares her… Values? See what I mean? It’s a little unsettling rooting for this couple. And yet I did.
I feel this must be a testament to the writing and narration, because I don’t think I could’ve enjoyed the story line and characters – which everything in me pulls away from – otherwise. The narration, by Hollie Jackson and Roger Wayne, was really fantastic. It connected me to these characters that I probably would have struggled to connect with otherwise. I will definitely be listening to more of their work – together or alone.
T. M. Frazier won me over with her storytelling in All the Rage. She threw in some incredible twists and managed to make me connect and feel really invested in the HEA of two characters a part of me still can’t believe I liked. I was anxious and excited. I think those who enjoy Dexter will like this even more than I did – maybe you’ll be able to completely shake that uncomfortable feeling I almost managed to shed.
