Rage follows a blue eyed, blond haired, teenage assassin who has no feeling and uncontrollable rage, hence the name. She thrives and gets off on destruction and murder. When the reader meets her in Bear’s book, you want to know more about her. The difference between how she looks and how she is feared by these bad-a** men is intriguing, and Rage, as a character, does not disappoint. Her background is interesting, and her capacity to love, even if it is only a few people, gives the reader enough to like her and care about her. The character who I love the most is Nolan. I wasn’t expecting him at all. Based on what I had read, I never expected his background, although it makes sense if he is to be Rage’s counterpart in the book. What I love about him is his acceptance of Rage. He never tries to change her, and he doesn’t run. He takes what he wants without apology, and there is something incredibly attractive about it.
The plot of this story, like all of her other books, is engaging. You are left wondering how it is all going to play out, and who is supporting whom. T.M. Frazier is really great at telling a story and foreshadowing possible outcomes, but she is still able to leave the reader in the dark until she chooses to reveal those important, game-changing plot details. It is one of the stylistic components of her writing that I love the most.
This is where my review goes a little south, and I’m torn by my review for this book. On the one hand, I have loved T.M. Frazier’s writing and her series since reading King. There has not been one of her six books that I have read that I have not raved about, and All the Rage in regards to plot and character development isn’t any different. The characters’ lack “normal” morals and are deviants, but, let’s be honest, that is what we love about her series. The dark and gritty world she has created is phenomenal. My major hang-up for this book is the grammatical errors! I’m not talking about a misplaced comma, a split infinitive, or dangling modifier. I am talking about blatant, numerous errors, such as wrong words in the sentence, for example, accident instead of accent. It became distracting for me as a reader.
Logically, I want to rate this book 3 crowns, but, like I said, I love T.M. Fraziers and this world she has created, so I just couldn’t do it. My emotional side is ruling; therefore, All the Rage gets 4 CROWNS from me.

They call me Rage.
My real name is like a shadow, always close behind, but never quite able to catch up.
I fly under the radar because no one ever suspects I’m capable of the kind of brutal violence I commit each and every day.
You see, I’m a girl. I’m nineteen.
And I’m a killer.
This life is all I know. It’s all I want to know. It keeps the shit buried that I need kept buried. It allows me to live without thinking too much.
Without dwelling on the past.
It all changes when an ordinary boy becomes my next target.
And my first love.
I have to choose.
The only life I’ve ever known has to die, or he does.
Either way, I’ll be the one pulling the trigger…
All the Rage is a STANDALONE.
