The Raging One by Lexy Wolfe was a fantastic fantasy novel. I didn’t want it to end! I can’t wait to read the next book. The characters are so real that I feel I’ve gained new friends. The characters have diverse personalities and prejudices, which gave them a realistic quality. The conflicts between characters had me cringing and angered at them, but the peppering of comedy from a couple of the characters had me chuckling and made this book even more enjoyable. The descriptions of the lands made me feel like I was there. There are many sub-plots woven in with the main plot that not only kept me aching to keep reading but also greatly enhanced the main plot without overpowering it.
