Rave is a work of adult fiction written by Konn Lavery. The story starts with Seth, a young adult who graduated from high school some years back. Ever since then, Seth has been headed in the wrong direction in life, mixing with questionable crowds of people, and always looking for the next best party to get buzzed and hook up with a certain someone… or anyone for that matter. This desperation leads Seth and his gang straight into an unexplainable crime scene, and things keep going downhill from there. Stuck with the dilemma between calling for help and risking being imprisoned, or fleeing the scene and escaping this complicated path somehow, can Seth and his gang find a way out of this screwed-up mess?

Rave by Konn Lavery was spectacularly written. I really enjoyed reading about Seth’s questionable lifestyle habits that kept on getting him into sticky situations between lust and drugs. His even more complicated upbringing in his aunt’s household gave the character a deeper meaning as to why he became the way he was, adding complexity to the storyline which I appreciate greatly. I loved the gory details of the murders that gave crystal-clear imagery and more attitude to the plot. Rave had tons of twists and turns that kept me wanting more from the book, and I genuinely couldn’t stop reading! The additional illustrations between certain chapters were also a very nice touch, one which I found heightened my emotional engagement and enabled me to reflect on what had happened between each chapter. I would recommend Konn Lavery's Rave to anyone looking for an intriguing and mind-boggling novel to read!
