Five Stars! Suzanne Lowe has written an entertaining book with Rage. I do like the idea of teenagers having to navigate the world, where there are no adults and no one to help them. It is an interesting scenario, particularly when you think how dependent teenagers are on technology. It is nice to read something not set in America for once. I would recommend it to dystopian fans. Samantha Gregory for Reader's Favorite.
I found the premise of Rage fascinating and this is what drew me into the story. Could a group of children form a cogent society once all the adults had disappeared? I found the story to be well written and the flow and tempo to be totally appropriate to the setting. I particularly enjoyed the clear emotional connection between Braydon and Lexi and wanted very much to see where this would lead. The author's target market is clearly the YA market; however, this did not stop me from thoroughly enjoying the read. The author clearly knows her environment and this shows through in her work. As a New Zealander, the Aussie slang was second nature to me but even for others it just adds authenticity to the work rather than distracting from it. Lowe did an excellent job of filling in the backstory, so this can be read as a stand-alone book. The ending did nicely set up book three and I look forward to reading it. 5 stars from me.

This is book 2 titled Rage, a sequel in the Seventeen Series where Lexi, Hadley and the children of Jasper’s Bay encounter more challenges as they learn to live without the help of adults or modern society. The author's sense of withstanding the hardest of challenges to survive, drives her stories. She wants to tell the story of Lexi, Hadley and the other children of Jasper’s Bay that she has not yet finished. The questions remain:
Did Lexi have the virus? Was anyone else immune? She was seventeen now No Google, no telephones or adults to ask for advice.whether she was infected with the virus. Had she become a walking host to this disease that either killed people or turned them into raging timebombs?
What happened to Braydon, Elisha and Lilly, the children who were exiled with the virus? Where did the gang of bullies go? An unforeseen threat emerged. The KV17 virus had mutated. Older teens could now be infected, altering their state of mind and emotional control. A new town , Gracetown, is introduced to the children of Jasper City, to show that the 10 children living there, were having the same problems of survival. Eventually, the separate towns would either have to work together to survive or compete for the limited resources and depletion of food supplies in the area.
Since the last adult in town had passed away from the KV17 virus six months before. Suddenly the children had to fend for themselves was an arduous struggle. In a world now devoid of the indulgences and luxuries once available 24/7, all at the touch of a button, it had become a daily battle to survive.
The author's approach is to describe the Australian landscape, their flora and fauna and enjoys using the typical slang phrases that make a distinctly Australian read. The reader will feel he is able to see the Australian bushland as Lexi, Hadley and the other experience it in a small way, through the story. A third book in the Seventeen Series trilogy is in the pipeline that will conclude the story of Lexi and Hadley and the other children in Jasper’s Bay.
The writing style is fresh, clear and describes the fruit of the earth, our responsibility for nature conservation and the Australian wildlife.
The emotional experiences of the young to fend for themselves in an environment unknown with all its peril to health, the revisiting of memories of a secure life with deceased parents, friends, become all touching and real to the reader. A lesson to survive without our contemporary facilities, age old knowledge of know -how.
Children had succumbed to the KV17 virus and exiled themselves into the harsh, barren Australian bush. The children weren’t used to that amount of violence and fury, and no one wanted to admit they kind of enjoyed the savageness of it It was as though they had gone back to the dark age.
Lexi is seventeen now, and knows what that could mean.She probably going to get the virus if she has not already got it. Nightmares of having the virus and screams, which controls emotions and thoughts, would explain why there is increased incidents of uncontrollable emotions like anger. Lexi thought what was going on?
Why was she in such a dark place while her pulse quickened? The air around her was rapidly becoming stale in the closed environment. Feeling increasingly uncomfortable, an intense pressure built in her chest as she struggled to breathe. Was she going to have a heart attack? There is an overwhelming feeling of heat and irritation like was consuming her whole being and suffer an uncontrolled rage like an animal. What kind of future did they have? And where was missing Elisha, one of the banished children?
They had to find a way to control the KV17 virus. Was it true that the mutated KV17 virus only affects people 17 years and older because their brains are more mature and developed than younger kids.
Lexi wasn’t sure what to make of a stranger she saw. None of them had seen an adult in over 18 months! As far as Lexi knew, every single adult had died from the virus, and yet, here one was walking determinedly around. Will fear overwhelm her?
We will be kept in suspense until Book 3 arrives.

Lexi is my absolute favorite, and I swear, if something happens, ugh, I don’t think I could take it. Okay, being a little dramatic, but I’ve become quite attached to her. I’m very happy to know that the story keeps going, this is not the end of the series, as it leaves on a substantial cliffhanger! So happy to have found another good series to look forward to!
