I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
Revenge is an euphoric thing. Trust me on this. Nothing compares to the release you get when you ruin someoneÔÇÖs life. When theyÔÇÖve stolen important things. Things that didnÔÇÖt belong to them. Things I revel in making them pay for.
What? Have I offended you? IÔÇÖm not here to appeal to your delicate senses. I have no intention of placating your wishes or living within your personal belief system nor do I care if you hate me. And you will hate me. Because IÔÇÖm a brutal, savage, cold-blooded murderer and IÔÇÖm here for my revenge.
IÔÇÖm Ethan MoonsongÔÇªAnd this is the story about how I went from the worldÔÇÖs most sacrificing man to the most feared and why I wouldnÔÇÖt trade it for anything in the world.
Fury has been my first novel by Fisher Amelie, and even though itÔÇÖs part of her Deadly Sins Series, and I missed some of EthanÔÇÖs story from Greed, I had no problems keeping up with what was happening. It can definitely be read as a standalone.
Having been dumped by what he thinks is the love of his life, Ethan is depressed and dealing with his heartbreak by drinking himself into oblivion every night. HeÔÇÖs miserable and dreaming of revenge on the person who stole his life. That is until he meets Finley one night. She helps him see that even though he lost the girl, live is not over yet and he can heal.
At first glance, Finley is the typical girl next doorÔÇöcarefree, fun, loving. But she has her own secrets and demons sheÔÇÖs fighting. She tries to help Ethan heal before sheÔÇÖs leaving for a year to Vietnam to try and make peace with her past. Finley is a strong, young woman with ideals and compassion, regardless of her things that happened to her.
After Finley leaves and Ethan finds out what she is doing in Asia, he take off after her to be there for her and protect her. What he never expected, however, is how one decision can alter the course of his live. How one moment, one situation can lead him down the path of revenge and no remorse. How can he come back from that kind of evil?
I mostly enjoyed this read. The beginning was a little long winded, and sometimes the metaphors didnÔÇÖt quite work for me or they were too drawn out. It was the ending of Fury that saved the book for me though. The lengths Ethan went to in order to save the innocent was not only disturbingly fascinating, but also amazingly writtenÔÇöhis inner conflict captivating. And FinleyÔÇÖs capacity to forgive and her compassion are unparalleled, especially after what sheÔÇÖs been through. I will definitely read the next one in the series.
