Review of RAZE by Tamara Grantham

A few days ago, I finished reading a novella by a good friend of mine, Tamara Grantham (find out more about her here). All I can say is WOW. Once I started reading RAZE, I couldn't stop until the last line pierced my heart. 

I'd like to tell you more about RAZE and where you can find a copy of your own.


To kick things off, here's a synopsis of the story:

"In the near future, a few young women manifest extraordinary abilities called "Shine." Each girl's ability is different. Some develop extraordinary mental abilities. Some become physically strong. Others have powers that defy description. But the world does not embrace these Shines. It fears them.

As professional hellraisers, sisters May and Lillie Wheaton believe they’re prepared for any situation. A client hires them to find her missing daughter and it seems like just another job until they realize the lost girl is a Shine. She’s been captured by New York’s most devious gang, the Xeros. May and Lillie track down the Xeros, but are horrified to learn the gang uses Shines in violent, deadly cage fights. Too late, May and Lillie realize the Xeros are smarter than they expected and, armed with the explosive power of Shines, are incredibly powerful. The lines between ally and enemy, between sister and friend, are about to change--fatally."

Super suspenseful, right? From the first sentence to the last, I guarantee that it is.  I've had the pleasure of reading quite a bit of Tamara's writing, and I've never not liked any of it. She writes hilarious, tough female leads who always get themselves into more trouble than it first appears they can handle. Her characters in RAZE are no different. If you like female characters who pack a punch, stop reading this review now and buy the book. 


This is the 6th book in the SHINE series, but just like Sabrina's book, LOST HAVEN, you don't have to read the others in order to enjoy RAZE to the fullest. I'm a picky reviewer, so since I can speak for any of the books before this one, I vote that you stick to Tamara and Sabrina's volumes. If you're hungry for more reads, keep checking back to my blog, I have more reviews upcoming! 

Also, you'll soon see an author interview from Tamara, so stay tuned! 

See you next time, readers.
