Whenever you read a good book, somewhere in the world a door opens to allow in more light.
I'm just trying to light up the world as much as I can one SciFi/paranormal/fantasy/space opera/time travel book at a time.
I read a few chapters of this months ago and just KNEW I had to have it. Sooooo into my preorder list it went. When it arrived in my kindle at 12:04 a.m. I was giddy. Lately, the preorders that are finally coming in have been AWESOME!!... more on the others to come BUT back to Furyborn....
This one sucked me in from the very start and held my attention throughout. That alone is a minor miracle at times. The pacing was spot on- It wasn't too fast as to feel rushed and disjointed and it definitely was not too slow- leaving you counting pages, hoping that it would just end already and put you out of your misery. The world building and character development were superb and even though the big reveal wasn't such a big surprise, it unravelled tantalizingly and was delivered expertly. I was helplessly enamored with how well the 2 dueling MC's POVs played tug-of-war with my emotional wellbeing. What were the MCs like you ask? Good question! Both Rielle and Elianna were absolute bad asses...I LOVE a story that features strong women and this one has a few. Navi was another amazing female who had no magic but made up for it with her bravery, determination and compassion. Then there were the "men"folk... in this book the males were either AWESOME...ahem, I'm looking at you Simon, Audrik and even little Remy.... or downright, unequivocally, nauseatingly Repugnant.... yes you (although not limited to) Corien, sit in the corner and think of all the Wrongness that is you, your crawlers, and your dirty deeds.
All of the wrongness set aside, the chapters switched effortlessly back and forth in just the right (cliffy) places, that had me fiending unhealthily for more... my curiosity was toyed with and grew exponentially at every turn... demanding I read on, rapt.
"The empirium lies within every living thing, and every living thing is of the empirium. Its power connects not only flesh to bone, root to earth, stars to sky, but also road to road, city to city. Moment to moment."
...the Empirium ensnared me and I can't get enough. Honestly, I NEED book #2 asap!
All in all, Furyborn passed Go and went directly onto my Favorites list. I HIGHLY recommend this one!
