Review 'Fury' by Charlotte McConaghy


https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/20922678-fury
When emotions are erased from the world, creating a civilization of mindless drones, only those with fury can survive.

On the same day each year Josephine Luquet wakes naked, shivering and covered in blood that is not her own. Under the cold gaze of the blood moon she is someone else entirely, but when dawn breaks her memories vanish and she is left with only an icy horror, a burning fury. Amid a sea of 'drones', she alone hasn’t been cured.

Then she meets Luke. He isn’t like the other drones. With secrets behind his eyes, he is the only one determined to help Josephine discover the truth before the next blood moon rises.

But time is running out. Is Luke willing to risk his life to be near her? Does he truly understand what violence she is capable of?

Raw and full of passion, Fury is a story of love in a dystopian world, and how much we are willing to forgive in the struggle to remember our humanity.

My Review:


A view weeks ago I received an invitation to participate in the blog Tour for 'Limerence' by Charlotte McConaghy. I read the book description and immediately wanted to sign up. But since ‘Limerence’ is the third book in the series and I haven’t read the previous books I thought I wouldn’t be able to be a part of the tour. Thankfully there was an option to read all three the books in the series. So as fast as I could I signed up and when I received the book I started reading the first book 'Fury' as fast as I could.

Well I can tell you one thing about this book: ITS AMAZING!! Really.. This book is so good I don't get why there aren’t movies being made about this one. From the moment I started reading I was completely hooked. 'Fury' is written in a very fascinating way. The story alters between the point of views of the three main characters and the story goes from a year ago to the present. This sounds confusing but really wasn’t confusing at all. This made this book all the more interesting, intriguing and completely addicting.

'Fury' is the story of a young woman called Josephine who is living in a world of people who have had the 'cure', and aren’t able to feel anger anymore. Josephine never had the cure and she is living with a terrible secret. She has been alone for years and doesn't interact with many people. That is until Luke starts talking with her. Luke is gorgeous, kind and really caring. He seems to really want to get to know Josephine. But life is hard and there is a lot wrong in the world.

Man, I loved these two characters. Josephine was so strong and I really admired her. She had been through so much and I think she was really brave. And Luke.. Sigh.. I loved that Guy. Seriously.. I developed a huge crush on Luke while reading this book. He was just so kind and caring. The romance and chemistry between Josephine and Luke was really fun to read about and I was totally hooked to every page.

This book gets a huge 5 star rating from me. I loved every single word and really couldn't put it down. Although a lot is revealed in the end, there is still a lot we don't know so I can’t wait to start reading the next book. 'Fury' is definitely a new favorite for me.

My Rating:
