Synopsis

I still have the dreams, baby. Do you?
In mine, I plead and wait for your touch to come like it always did.
But it never does.
I strain against the iron, but you’re no longer there in the shadows.
I’m alone.
One single shard of deep dark hope was enough back then.
Not now.
My claws, your fangs have sunk deep.
Follow my trail of blood,
my trail of anger, desolation.
Am I the same man?
Soul dark,
Heart dense,
Blood fierce,
Purpose raw.
Flame burning.
Unrelenting.
Brewed on vengeance,
laced with tenderness,
my fury for you.

Chained in brutal darkness, they fell in love. Free in the world, they were torn apart. Empires rise, empires fall, and still, she burns in his soul. But between them now runs a wild river of ambition, greed, and blood. So much blood. He’ll do anything for revenge, and she’ll do anything to protect him. Love and vengeance are the same kind of savage…

5 Crowns (I wish I could give it more)

Fury is a standalone, but it is also a spin-off from the brilliant Lock & Key series. You don’t have to read that series to enjoy Fury, but I highly recommend that you do. This book runs alongside all 4 books in that series and it really will only intensify your enjoyment of this story.

Do you know what, I am absolutely lost for words in regards to this book. At this point in my review I usually like to give a story overview, but how can I even begin to encapsulate the epic journey that this book has taken me on. And that guys is what this book is; a journey of love, heartbreak, violence and passion and one that spans 25 years.

So what I will say is that this is Finger and Serena’s story. If you are a fan of Cat Porter’s you have been introduced to these characters in her Lock & Key series. From horrific beginnings a true love is born, but life gets in the way, as well as evil and let me tell you it gives us the reader a book that is gritty, breath-taking and heart stopping brilliant.

I’m not sure what it is about Cat’s writing, but every time I pick up one of her book it causes physical reactions. Fury touched every one of my emotions. I read this with my heart in my throat most of the time and with an anxiousness that only 3 other books have ever caused; one of which is Random & Rare, also by Ms Porter. Seriously, it made me feel sick at times dreading what was going to come next for these star-crossed lovers. And that my friends is what is so bloody awesome about this masterpiece.

Now be warned, this book is not for the faint of heart. It is violent, it is at times very graphic, but it is also freaking beautiful. Cat Porter doesn’t churn out books, she makes us wait and then rewards us with our patience. Her books are detailed, they dot the I’s and cross every single t. They twist and they turn and they push us to the brink, and rather that than a generic book every other month. This is an author worth waiting for because of the end product that she gives us. The writing is first class, the characters are original and the storylines have a depth that most authors only dream of creating. I am in awe of this woman’s talent and her gift for mucking with my damn blood pressure.

So as I have already mentioned, Random & Rare has always been my favourite from this author. Fury though gives it a run for its money in my affection. I am not going to say Fury is now my favourite as it would be like choosing a favourite child, but if you are a fan of this author, well it just gives you an idea of how truly epic this story really is.

In an indie world awash and saturated with MC novels, there are but a few authors that can pull it off for me consistently and Cat Porter is at the top of the pile. So if you are undecided, if you aren’t feeling MC romance like you once were, please take the chance on this author and her books. They are some of the best you will ever read!

 

A MUST READ BOOK AND AUTHOR!
