Fury
Fury - Steven James

Fury is the sequel to Blur, and as in the first book, Daniel is seeing things he wishes he wouldn't see and is trying to figure out what it all means. It had been a while since I read the first book and so the details were a bit blurry for me, but it was repeated at the beginning of Fury, so it didn't feel like I had to go back to Blur.

While this was an entertaining read, I couldn't shake the feeling it was a bit forced at times. Also, without putting spoilers, there is a lot here that didn't surprise me in the end at all. Which was maybe a bit of a let down, but it still was a very quick read. I already have the third book in the series and I plan to read it soon, so I hope the story will take a turn to the original in that one.

Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!

In Fury Born - David Weber

This is an all time fave and I generally reread it once a year. I love the mix of myth with military sci-fi. I love the emotion and family and friends and tragedy and vengeance and skulduggery.

Audio Book Review: Storm And Fury (The Harbinger #1) By Jennifer Armentrout
Storm and Fury (The Harbinger #1) - Jennifer L. Armentrout

 

This book made me realize something that I probably should have figured out while I was reading the Dark Elements series. My problem with those novels was always one character (Layla) and not the overall story because I ended up loving this novel. Even though it was more on the slow end of the spectrum it made for a fascinating journey!

 

The new heroine Trinity has a much better head on her shoulders. Maybe it's because she's 18 and more "mature". All I can tell you is that I gravitated towards her as a character. She fights for what she believes is the right choice, doesn't attract drama like the plague and *bonus* knows how to talk things out like an adult without whining or throwing a fit.

 

Zayn was very toned down from what I remember him being in the Dark Elements trilogy. Though that's probably my fault because I just couldn't take the drama Layla was causing and skipped the third book altogether. From what I pieced together from the information provided in this story I have a very vague idea of what happened to him and it makes that third book sound amazing, if only it weren't for Layla... Anyway, Zayn was very responsible and has matured quite well. He has a temper but is still respectful enough to let things go and converse about it later on.

 

Roth was a fantastic part of this book! Without Layla being present and the drama she brings with her, I really enjoy his personality! The more I think about it the more I realize that I disliked Layla not the story or the universe the author built in the Dark Elements series.

 

The twist at the end was like a knife twisting in my heart! Trinity and Zayn just found each other and now this happens. I want to know more about their protector bond and how they're going to deal with the consequences of having it and their possible blossoming relationship (maybe I'm being too hopeful!). Here's to a year-long wait!

 

The Audio Book:

 

I didn't dislike the narration but I think a different narrator should have been chosen. Lauren Fortgang has a decent range of male and female voices but she can only go so far. Roth's voice, in particular, was unfortunate and it felt like I was hearing her destroy her voice for an end product that was dubious at best.

Book Review for Gus by L. Wilder
Gus: Satan's Fury MC- Memphis (Satan's Fury MC-Memphis Book 6) Kindle Edition - L. Wilder
Another winner in this on going series!
I loved this story from cover to cover and it was so easy to fall in love with these characters from the very beginning.
 
Gus is a guy who is easy to love.He is very protective of those he loves,sexy as sin and all alpha,dangerous and he made us laugh and time or two but, he is also one once he has given his heart away to the one he loves above all else is for life.
 
Samantha was beautiful and sweet and kind and loving and of a free spirit at heart and one to once given her heart to the man she loves its for a lifetime to.
 
This story was filled with a lot of ups and downs and more than a few surprises that kept you glued to the pages the entire time.The story was also filled with angst and heartache and blackmail and also sacrifices.My heart ached for this couple as you new they were doomed from their very beginning but, deep down they were soulmates for one another but, another would never let them be.
 
Overall this was a really emotional tale and where fate works in mysterious ways in order to reunite a couple who should never have been apart.Samantha and Gus had awesome chemistry and were hot as heck together.We loved all the characters as some made us laugh and others made us cry a time or too but, we can't help love them all there totally love-able.
 
I love a story when a love stands the test of time and it was so true for this couple.
"This was a downright heart melting read for us!"

Storm and Fury is Amazing!
Storm and Fury (The Harbinger #1) - Jennifer L. Armentrout

STORM AND FURY WRITTEN BY JENNIFER L. ARMENTROUT

Narrated by Lauren Fortgang♥♥♥
FormatAudiobook 14 hours
Publisher: HarperAudio

 

A paranormal fantasy with a touch of romance is exactly the kind of matter Storm and Fury is made of. The way that Gargoyles are presented is nothing short of amazing. They are called Wardens and they serve a purpose: to protect humankind from demons and guard and protect Trinity Marrow. Trin, as she is called, is special and she might be a bit of a spoiled brat for being treated differently than any other human but there is a reason for it. She is a Trueborn which means she’s a Nephilim. She is half-human and half-angel. Her father is a very big and important archangel and her mother was human and they …. well… had sex.

I loved Trinity’s friends but some of them weren’t as well fleshed out as others. Like I hated Misha, Trinity’s so-called protector which we learn had been a mistake. Zayne and Peanut are my favourites. Peanut is a ghost! He is very funny who has a habit of not knocking lol

Demons run amok in Washington D.C and something is killing Wardens. However, what if we were wrong about demons? Is it possible we are mistaken about them? I for one wish it were the case because I happen to like Roth the Crown Prince of Hell! This demon knows love, and how is that possible? He is a fabulous character and I hope to see him again. Anyway, Bael is evil and remains elusive. If I remember correctly, Bael is the reason that Zayne and Trinity travel to Washington D.C. It kidnapped Misha, and Trinity is intent on finding him. Did I mention she knows how to fight and is a kickass warrior? She is. There are also witches and a Harbinger dun dun dun dun. Bring it on!

All in all, it was a fantastic read if you like that sorta thing. I enjoyed her Covenant series and Titan spin-off. Storm and Fury stoked the fire once again. Loved it!
