The RavenousThe Ravenous by Amy Lukavics
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

Ok Amy Lukavics, I’ve given you three books worth of chances now. After The Ravenous? No more. I actually can’t believe that a publisher is still investing money in publishing this shit.

If you want to know the plot, just read the blurb. It quite literally tells you everything about The Ravenous that there is to know. What it doesn’t tell you is that the characterisation is so poor as to be non-existent. Character motivations make zero to no sense, and there is absolutely no sense of danger or terror anywhere in this plot.

I think Lukavics might be the only writer who legitimately gets worse with each successive novel, but there we go. Plot, pace, character, all of the things that she started with potential back with Daughters Unto Devils seem to get thrown to the wolves, regurgitated, and fed to them again and again with each successive book she releases.

If you like YA, horror, or just, you know, books. Please, don’t bother with this.
