Imperial Intelligence couldn't find them, the Imperial Fleet couldn't catch them, and local defenses couldn't stop them. It seemed the planet-wrecking pirates were invincible. But they made a big mistake when they raided ex-commando leader Alicia DeVries' quiet home work, tortured and murdered her family, and then left her for dead. Alicia decided to turn "pirate" herself, and stole a cutting-edge AI ship from the Empire to start her vendetta. Her fellow veterans think she's gone crazy, the Imperial Fleet has shoot-on-sight orders. And of course the pirates want her dead, too. But Alicia DeVries has two allies nobody knows about, allies as implacable as she is: a self-aware computer, and a creature from the mists of Old Earth's most ancient legends. And this trio of furies won't rest until vengeance is served.In Fury Born is a greatly expanded new version of David Weber's popular novel Path of the Fury, which has gone through six large printings in its original mass market edition. David Weber has added considerable new material, revealing the earlier life of Alicia DeVries before she embarked on her mission of vengeance, and illuminating the universe of the original story. The result is a novel with almost twice the wordage of the original, and a must-buy for all David Weber fans.

I'm halfway through this book (which is page 347!) and I'm reading one fight scene after another. I kept thinking once the AI is involved, maybe the story will start getting better but at this page there are just glimpses. I'm giving up.

3.5 starsI enjoyed this book, but the jacket copy on this edition must've been lifted straight from the original book Path of the Fury, because it didn't indicate at all that this rewritten version added a prequel - 600 pages worth! - before the events in the description even take place.

5.0 In Fury Born
This book is a prequel and repackaging of the original story, Path of the Fury. One of the best military sci-fi books I have read. Weber has a talent for sci-fi action that surpasses other authors. He pays great attention to the details behind the science of his work, making it believable and consis...

This is one of my favorite books of all time, I never get tired of reading it. I loved Path of the Fury and consider it David Weber's best stand-alone novel. So when I heard that he was going to write an expanded version, I was worried that it would not be as good as the original. But In Fury Born w...
