It's hard to believe this story is over. There are still so many things left unexplored but, nevertheless, I am quite pleased with the ending.

It's bittersweet to say goodbye to characters I enjoy so much.



If you are unaware, The Last Hope is the concluding book in The Raging Ones duology, written by sister-writing duo, Krista and Becca Ritchie.

This YA Sci-Fi Romance is one of my most anticipated sequels of the year. The first book, The Raging Ones, was released in August of 2018 an

This conclusion was interesting. Actually, it was very different from what I was expecting. Which isn't bad at all - just notable.

Again, the authors know how to spin a well thought through and captivating story. A brand new plot, a new directive, and a glimmer of hope.

After enduring the cliffhanger from book 1 I couldn't wait to get my hands on this book. I had to know what was happening with my favorite trio. Color me ecstatic when I found out that there was someone else just waiting i

Krista and Becca Ritchie have masterfully blended sci-fi and romance in this book, the second installment of this entertaining duology. All the feels in outer space. This is a duology and the first book “The Raging Ones” should definitely be read first. The focus of this book is on the beloved trio from the first book Franny, Court, and Mykal. Imprisoned on an enemy starship with their “last hope” being a baby. There are also some new characters that added a bit of a splash, but honestly I enjo ...more

Gosh, darn this book and its gosh darn addictiveness! I read it in one sitting! I don't know what this series does to me. I couldn't stop reading it. I was so invested in these characters it's not even funny.

Last year I read The Raging Ones and while I didn't absolutely love it, I was kind of slightly obsessed with it while reading. I was hooked with the characters and their strange and wonderful connection to each other. I was 100% there for this trio in book one. And I was just as into them wh

”After all that we’ve been through, we deserve a better ending.”


Wow. That was fykking awesome. Mayday.

Well, what exactly can I say to describe this book without spoiling it? Honestly, not very much. What I can say is that Krista and Becca Ritchie once again take us on an adventure with our linked trio of Franny, Mykal, and Court.

We start off where we left off in book one. Then, somehow a whole new and unexpected mission begins. I read a few reviews before I started, that mentioned that TLH felt

August 13th, 2019 is the conclusion to this sci-fi/fantasy romance duology.



Court, Mykal, and Franny return! Two boys who have fallen deeply in love with each other, bound together with a girl they would kill for -- and in THE LAST HOPE, a new mysterious boy shows interest in Franny and shakes up the trio's dynamic!

We've LOVED every moment writing these characters and this world, and we can't wait for all of you to read how the big twist in THE RAGING ONES comes together in THE LAST HOPE ... and

I began The Last Hope blind because I never read The Raging Ones. I was confused at first, but bits of information began to show the bigger picture of the story. The link between Franny, Court and Mykal seems like a terrible thing to endure. I would hate it because there is no privacy, and it's kind of like being controlled. I grew to love these characters

Science fiction has never been a genre I was fond of. I'm more of a fantasy and romance reader, but Krista and Becca Ritchie have made me a fan!

The Last Hope is a fantastic conclusion to The Raging Ones duology. I devoured every page of this story, unable to read the words fast enough. Krista and Becca Ritchie imbued the perfect amounts of adventure, suspense, and romance into The Last Hope.

As long as the Ritchie sisters keep writing science fiction, I will keep reading it!

One of my favorite releases of 2018, The Raging Ones, had me at the end of my seat and screaming for more. It's sequel and conclusion, The Last Hope, is quite the fitting end to Court, Mykal and Franny's story. If you haven't read The Raging Ones, beware of possible spoilers to that book ahead.

I really enjoyed The Raging Ones last year and was anxious to get back to Court, Mykal and Franny and learn their fate! You really have to read that one to be invested in The Last Hope... but you'll be happy to know that this is a duology!!

This is a hard review to write because it’s one of those books that made me feel so much, and how do you accurately put that into words, especially without spoilers??? I don’t know, but I’m gonna keep this spoiler-free and do my best.

The Last Hope is the conclusion to The Raging Ones Duet. I was happy to be reunited with the great set of characters. The blurb summarizes this book perfectly so I will not really go into that. Krista and Becca did a great job with this duet. It was original, mysterious, suspenseful, emotional, funny and romantic. It did take me longer to finish this book, I didn't get the urge to binge-read it in one or two sittings. There were a cou

"After all that we’ve been through, we deserve a better ending."

The story leads off right where we last saw our beloved trio, Franny, Court, and Mykal…captured and in prison. When a stranger offers a way out, they are quick to accept the offer. Slowly, they start to discover secrets from their past and the reason for their existence. Will they choose freedom or saving the planet?!

It’s been a few weeks now, since I finished The Last Hope, and I still haven’t reconciled that it's really over. Krista and Becca Ritchie gave me more than I could have ever asked for, more than I could have even imagined, in the conclusion to Court, Mykal, and Franny’s story. I’m getting weepy again, just thinking about saying a final good-bye to them, and the rest of the crew.

A huge thanks to Wednesday Books for the e-arc and the chance to be a part of this blog tour.

While The Raging Ones weaved a story of intrigue and mystery, and topped it off with one hell of a cliffhanger, The Last Hope picked up where the previous book left off, tangled the story further, then untangled it, and it was all so fun to witness.

I really loved The Raging Ones: I thought it was so creative, with a setting on a frozen world with a lilac sky where everyone knows the date that they will die, and a trio of soulbonded characters where the two men are in love. I knew it was going to be a hard act to follow and The Last Hope was a good book, but it was a little "far out".

The Raging Ones (the first book in this series) ended with a major cliffhanger that left me reeling. It didn't take long for me to fall in love with Franny, Court, and Mykal, so their less-than-stellar circumstances had me worried for their safety and sanity. The Last Hope was everything I

The main thing I remembered from reading the first installment, is the link between Mykal, Franny and Court - the three main characters of this duology. I was intrigued by it, but annoyed by how similar their characters felt to me whenever the POV switched. You couldn't really tell while reading. I don't know whether the authors improved on that front, or if I just didn't mind it as much, but.. I didn't struggle with it at all reading the sequel! Definitely a huge plus for me since I was afraid ...more

In a nutshell, Book one and Book two are completely different books. Same characters, same plot building up and out, but somehow entirely different. The Raging Ones was a sold sci-fi with awesome world-building and an honest and believable plot. This one ... took a very weird turn. Like magical babies, water world planets with 80's-esque tropical clothing, and humans on spaceships dressed like roman gladiators. I'm not quite so sure what to think of this one.
