get evenphenomenal after ever book that she writes I love her Hope series but I fell hard for this one Fans of dystopian novels will love this ride Be warned, there is a fair amount of violence in Raksha and the author does not hold back when it comes to gore I love gore I say the , the better It had just the right amount of angst when it came to the romance department I feel like you can t go big with romance in these types of books simply for the fact that people are killing each other Kinda sucks the romance out of you I can t help but love these characters I don t want to spoil anything but I mourn the loss of Cai Even in death I frickin love him and I m a little sad I didn t get to know himI almost wish that Frankie will write a short story on him but that s a conversation left between us Kit and Ryka I just love them both to pieces I just think it s so fucked up for her to leave one messed up society to one that s equally terrible I loved the ending of the story and it left me curious for what is to come in the series I really hope you will all take a chance and read this book 5 Stunning Stars I say wow I never thought I d be completely mesmerized with this book, but I

boyfriend, Ryka I HEART THEM SO MUCH I have had the good fortune to read an advance copy of this amazing distopian novel and can t wait for others to read it Rose writes in tight, electric prose that never gets in the way of her story The powerful character of Kit is both cut off from her humanity, butdeeply human than most Rose reveals an assured hand as a storyteller as Kit makes a hero ine s journey that will be as beloved as the Hunger Games Don t miss this one |Download ☸ Raksha ♗ She has no name She has her knives her training her halo The first and second give her the tools and the skill to defeat the opponents she is pitted against each month The third frees her from pain and fear From any kind of emotion at all Everything is as it should be Everything is as it should be, until FearPainAngerHappinessDesireGuiltLoveWhen a newly named Kit escapes the Sanctuary after killing her best friend, the last thing she needs is another knife in her hand Or Ryka, the damaged, beautiful blonde boy, who she refuses to let save her Still learning how to process the onslaught of her new feelings, the sights and sounds of Freetown are overwhelming and strange There are a hundred differences between her old home and her new one, but one thing remains starkly similar the matches Yet where the blood in the Sanctuary landed only on the colosseum floor, Kit will quickly learn that a river of red runs through Freetown s very streets Freed from the oppression of a society who stole her right to feel, the true horror of her old life leaves Kit wondering if she really has been freed at all Would she be better off without the crippling horror of all the blood on her hands, or is the love of one boy worth living through all the pain Raksha is the call of the dead It is the rumbling chant for fresh blood from the other side, the demand for sacrifice The colosseum is behind Kit The fighting pits await I m not a fan of dystopian books, but Halo was a pleasant surprise.From the very first page, story pulled me in with its grim introduction and begins at a very pivotal, heart wrenching moment The world, or the Sanctuary, is a very lonely, very detached place most inhabitants wear a Halo around their neck, a unique device that suppresses the experience of emotion in its wearer, even eliminating pain altogether Falin Kitsch is a renowned fighter having never lost a match against her opponents I m not a fan of dystopian books, but Halo was a pleasant surprise.From the very first page, story pulled me in with its grim introduction and begins at a very pivotal, heart wrenching moment The world, or the Sanctuary, is a very lonely, very detached place most inhabitants wear a Halo around their neck, a unique device that suppresses the experience of emotion in its wearer, even eliminating pain altogether Falin Kitsch is a renowned fighter having never lost a match against her opponents After all, losing equated to death by the victor s hands But in a turn of events, the next match she ll face will be against her long time training partner and somewhat friend since childhood It s win or die As the story plays out, Kit unintentionally escapes from her Halo and struggles to adjust to the onslaught of strange feelings that are out of her control The book is her journey from being a leashed fighter with no understanding of emotion to a girl that discovers a world of colour anger, pain, compassion, jealousy, sadness, love, regret beyond her comprehension.If it sounds slightly cliche, it s because it is, and that s why the dystopian genre doesn t appeal very much to me every dystopian book must adhere to two distinct features, where it takes on oppression as a fundamental theme, and portrays society as the primary antagonist working against the interests of the people With these two key requirements, there is little room left for originality How many non mainstream dystopian plotlines have emerged in the last couple of years Yeah, I can t think of any either Although one could argue that it takes an extraordinary author to conjure up a fresh idea I did like this book, hence the four star rating It was written nicely and speckled with carefully inserted, poignant scenes that I loved for making me feel so much and hated for making feel that way Oh, the irony There were also some very sweet moments where Kit experienced something for the first time, and it was so wholesome watching her process her emotions One problem, however, is that even after reading the whole book, I m not entirely sure of the stories context why does the Sanctuary require the use of Halos, or even regular matches between Falin The two aspects are especially central to the story but justification, the whys eluded me Kit was a kick ass, self sufficient character who could annilihilate Freetown s most elite combatants Which is why I wantedaction in the book and to watch her slay her enemies down the way I knew she could Unfortunately, Halo is,than anything, a story of self discovery rather than an action story It s not a bad thing, I just would have enjoyed itthe other way.And Caius I wantedof him I can t help but feel that he would have been a powerful addition to the book If only there had been a littlefocus on his parts.I came into the book unknowing of what I should expect, seeing as my recent track record of books hasn t been the best I m glad that I liked it, that it didn t disappoint me and that it had me fixated on the story despite being a dystopian novel This book was wayyyy out of my comfort zone Dystopia novels is something I try to avoid like the plague To this date I have only read a handful, and those were part of Bookshelf Bingo last year sometime, but this bookwow It may not have been what I thought I wanted, but boy oh boy it was what I needed to re ignite my passion for reading I.could.not.put.it.down From the first page I was interested, invested, engrossed Stuck like glue to my

were part of Bookshelf Bingo last year sometime, but this bookwow It may not have been what I thought I wanted, but boy oh boy it was what I needed to re ignite my passion for reading I.could.not.put.it.down From the first page I was interested, invested, engrossed Stuck like glue to my kindle, to the world Rose created and to the highs and lows that is Kit, Ryka, Freetown, the Sanctuary, Olivia, Jack Cai ALL THAT ACTION There was always something important happening or about to happen So much ass kicking I ll start with the world building Now, I m not a huge fan wordy or so much description that makes my eyes glaze over in my reading but I completely and totally was a slave to each and every word all the way through There was no skipping After reading this I have worked out I seem to favor fluffy , easy reads without even realising It s so easy to get caught up that I forget about my love for UF and novels withaction involving weapons than action in the bedroom I m thrilled to have found that passion again in this book.The characters, learning and living with emotion for the very first time, the fighting, and the whole world Rose transported us toothere s just so much to mention without glazing over your eyes To me, this book was the total package I cried WAY MORE than a few tears I giggled at Kit ALL THE TIME the rationale about the fires, the dresses bells so many other Kit moments made me laugh SO loud and my boy Ryka too Right throughout the book my heart was pounding through my chest I thought it may just pop out near the end I needLike ASAP Yesterday even I have so many questions, and that was before the darn epilogue I can t wait to be reunited with everyone I came to care for I was laughing or crying and right now I feel like doing both because I wah wah want Kit was so refreshing She wasn t all snarky and Rose Hathaway , my most favorite female hero, but she had other qualities that endeared her to me just as much I never thought I would say I enjoyed a less snarky protagonist LOVE HER Ryka was just swooooooon His protective, caring and stubborn nature was fun, but notso than his sweeter side That boy has got both swagger sweet tucked into those boots Pop over to see their bios on Rose s blog It was awesome reading such a fabulously great novel from a fellow Australian, Bravo Ms Rose Seriously an amazing read that I will be recommending to everyone I thoroughly enjoyed it even with the CREEPY Priestesses a crazy ass twist I didn t see comingDelirium cross Hunger Games cross Divergent Here s some of my favorite passagesFear has to be the most unpleasant feeling I ve ever experienced It leaves me frantic and filled with self pity, and I end up getting angry all over again at how pathetic I m being Radicals Ryka narrows his eyes at me Thats what you call us Uh huh Well that s ironic Why do you say that Because you re the radical ones Your government thinks you can t be trusted, can t be civilised enough to handle your own emotions, so they collared the whole population like dogs Turned you all into walking zombies Four bells for four hours work I have no idea what the value of a bronze bell is but I m hoping it s a lot Cleaning vegetables is really not fun Well, we re friends In that weird way where you re eternally mad at me, and I m eternally imagining what you look like naked I m begging you not to choose this Choose something else Choose the possibility that there could be something else worth feeling all the bad stuff for Choose me Faith is a fragile thing More often than not, it gets broken and worn away by life It requires us to be willing to fight for a belief, to choose to believe it LOVE LOVE FREAKING LOVED THIS BOOK THERE IS NOT ENOUGH STARS IN THE

you can do for them, your life is spent fighting for your life, literally Can you imagine it Well, no probably not and that s fine You don t have to because Frankie Rose has done it for you in her amazing new novel, Raksha.Raksha starts off with Falin Kitsch about to take on her most important fight yet She will be pitted against her life long training partner, her best friend if those exist in a world without feelings and one of them will not be leaving the arena alive At the eight percent mark on my Kindle, I had to pause Set my Kindle down Take some calming, healing deep breaths and remind myself that this is just a book and I can survive it The first knife fight scene in a book about knife fighting and I was already an emotional mess What did that say for how my emotions were going to handle the rest of the book You move like flowing water when you fight It s breathtaking, really You re so powerful Graceful I have to struggle not to touch you All I want to do is reach out and run my hand through your hair That s weird, right Sorry he says, grinning But then you usually kick me in the face and, wellit s hard to feel romantic towards someone kicking you in the face The fight has left our heroine with a broken halo collar and she is feeling everything Guilt, pain, sorrow, loss, scared and an overwhelming desire to escape Sanctuary This is where the story takes on a new feel Raksha has elements of The Hunger Games, Under the Never Sky and maybe even a little Divergent and Delirium But at the same time is nothing like any of those stories Kit, the name she s decided on now that she is no longer controlled by a cruel government, escapes into the outside world It is in the forest, as she s running for her life that she meets Ryka FYI, all you ladies who love a good book boyfriend, Ryka is a great pick Ryka takes Kit to Freetown, a town where girls don t carry knives and fight for their lives A town with some deep seeded, somewhat archaic religious beliefs and nearly barbaric rituals Kit doesn t fit in but has no where else to go and finds she is quickly becoming attached to Ryka and his family and these new feelings she is having may be enough to risk her life to stay with them To learn what it means to love and be loved You ll spend all day every day imagining ways to make them smile Imagining what their lips feel like on yours Imagining ways to make them agree to fall as stupidly and painfully in love with you as you have with them As she always does, Rose delivers some really wonderful characters Some you love, some you adore and want to pinch their cheeks for being so cute, some you will admire for their absolute bravery and strength, some you will hate One in particular, for me I won t spoil anything but by the end of Raksha I was ready to throttle this someone On the other hand there were others that I just want to wrap up in blankets so I could cuddle and coo at them and tell them everything is going to be fine Even if it s not Because it may not This world is rough, harsh and I see an epic battle coming and I have a sinking feeling that there are going to be some people in harms way that I don t want to be there I am all too excited to see where this series is going Filled with amazing fight scenes, beautiful characters, snide humor and honeyed momentsRaksha was an absolutely entertaining read
