5 stars for Rave by @konnl #horror #thriller #lgbtq #newrelease #canadianauthor #bookreview

Title: Rave

Author: Konn Lavery

Genre: Horror, Thriller

Book Blurb:

Twenty-four hours of drugs, bloodshed, and lust.

Cursed by love, desire, and his cousin's crime, Seth needs the greatest rave of 1999 for an escape. But his hopes of sweet release wither as he and his friends carelessly get their DNA on an unexplainable murder.

The RCMP are going to love them! They'll completely believe that these drugged-out kids at an illegal festival saw a horned man-beast decapitating people--right? Oh, and Seth's cousin Floyd shows up to shed light on his dark, unsettling past. These four kids are in for the rave of a lifetime. Praise for the Works of Konn Lavery

"Author Konn Lavery encapsulates the full gamut of human emotion . . ." - Readers' Favorite

"The tension ran through my veins as I gripped the pages, wanting to take it all in, but also wanting to turn to the next one." - Julie Hiner (Author)

"Konn does a great job introducing the reader to the background and really gives a feel for the small-town world." - Literary Titan

My Review:

A terrifying book set in Canada that shows you life isn't going to be what you expect. Seth is a young man kind of going through the motions. Not certain in his sexuality, no clue for his future, no clue what to do, no clue where to go. Seth simply lives for his next high, the next rave and the next make-out session.

Add to him a small cadre of similarly lost youth and add a serial killer and watch the fun unfold. This book was a Scream. It really at times makes one wonder what they did last summer.

A very, very accurate portrayal of the rave lifestyle of the late '90s. You can feel you are in the underbelly of society in British Colombia. At times, the gore can really grip a reader. The sense of being hunted leaves a reader on edge. A well-written book, Rave sits well in the thriller genre. Take a journey into the hazy world of raves and then watch out for the sharp knife. Recommended to fans of slasher films and books.
