Fury is intense, powerful, raw, stunning, and hot enough to melt your e-reader. This epic tale from Cat Porter will rip your heart out and haunt you long after you read the last page. ~ Java Girl, Guilty Pleasures
In mine, I plead and wait for your touch to come like it always did.
But it never does.
I strain against the iron, but you’re no longer there in the shadows.
One single shard of deep dark hope was enough back then.
My claws, your fangs have sunk deep.
Follow my trail of blood,
my trail of anger, desolation.
Am I the same man?
Brewed on vengeance,
laced with tenderness,
my fury for you.
I don’t have the words to express just how much I loved Fury. It tore my heart out, and I’m not sure I’ll ever be the same. The intense emotions left me stunned, breathless, and completely blown away. Cat Porter’s words are beautiful, even when the story she tells is raw, brutal, and often, ugly. Finger and Lenore’s story, while harsh and violent, is also an incredibly beautiful and moving story of two people doing whatever it takes to survive. Fury spans twenty-five years and Ms. Porter layers Finger and Lenore’s story over those in her Lock & Key series, creating a depth of both plot and character development I’ve rarely, if ever, seen. Pieces of various puzzles fall into place, even when I didn’t realize they were missing. She doesn’t fill in the gaps as much as she adds rich layers to an already intricately crafted story. Each book is an emotional journey filled with unforgettable characters and situations. Most readers of romance are looking forward to the HEA, and trust me, I desperately wanted that for these two, but the real story here is the journey both characters take to arrive at a place and time where they can finally be together. It’s not always easy. In fact, there were scenes that I found difficult to read, but Fury made me feel so much. You might want to have a box of tissues handy. I know I needed them throughout the book. My emotions were all over the place. One scene in particular nearly killed me—I was so horrified and hurt so badly for them. The connection between Finger and Lenore, the intensity of their feelings for each other was so powerful, I felt at times like I was intruding on a deeply personal, intimate experience. Even though I cried over all they had lost, or never had the chance to experience, the fact they not only survived, but thrived, and found each other again was so gratifying.
Fury is a standalone, but it’s interwoven with events and characters from Ms. Porter’s Lock & Key series. I strongly suggest reading the four books in the Lock & Key series. Not only will doing so add to the experience of Fury, but the books are some of the best I’ve ever read. Watching some of the same events from the other four books, but from a different perspective, and with different intent, just made the entire saga richer, deeper, and even more complex. With every book I think Cat Porter won’t be able to top this, but then she does. I wish I could give Fury more than five stars. It’s truly one of the best books I’ve ever read.
