Ravage was an interesting read for me - I have not read the other books in this series but that did not actually matter I found as this was a rounded story in and of itself. I was not sure what to expect going in, but I found myself utterly hooked.
It is very dark. Some dark subject matter and some deeply violent and intense emotional prose that really digs deep - for that reason it certainly won't be for everyone. I do feel I'd like to go back and read the previous novels now to see what the picture looks like as a whole, Tillie Cole has a certain lilt to her writing style that really is very good but I'm not sure I'd like to live in her head!
Overall recommended and I will write a fuller, more frank review for the blog soon - I think I'm going to leave that until after I have had time to pick up and read the other books.
