Overview

Magic, fate and hope collide in the stunning conclusion of New York Times bestselling author Rachel Vincent’s acclaimed Menagerie trilogy…

1986: Rebecca Essig leaves a slumber party early but comes home to a massacre—committed by her own parents. Only one of her siblings has survived. But as the tragic event unfolds, she begins to realize that other than a small army of six-year-olds, she is among very few survivors of a nationwide slaughter.

The Reaping has begun.

Present day: Pregnant and on the run with a small band of compatriots, Delilah Marlow is determined to bring her baby into the world safely and secretly. But she isn’t used to sitting back while others suffer, and she’s desperate to reunite Zyanya, the cheetah shifter, with her brother and children. To find a way for Lenore the siren to see her husband. To find Rommily’s missing Oracle sisters. To unify this adopted family of fellow cryptids she came to love and rely on in captivity.

But Delilah is about to discover that her role in the human versus cryptid war is destined to be much larger—and more dangerous—than she ever could have imagined.

Weaving together past and present in this heartbreaking tale of sacrifice and self-discovery, Fury is the deeply moving finale to a series that readers won’t soon forget.

I didn’t realize when I requested this book that it was the third part in a trilogy. However, it was still a good book. I don’t mind parallel stories as long as they are well written, and this one was. The story was definitely a page-turner. I am going to have to go back and find the other two and read. I recommend. **I voluntarily read and reviewed this book

Oh my gosh! Where do I begin? I didn’t know this was the third book in a trilogy. E of time constraints, I had to read it as a stand alone and I hated that. I will try not to give away any spoilers, especially since I am not quite sure what I might spoil… I sort of pulled things together at the end, though I do plan to go from the beginning and read all three.
So, here’s the gist, from what I can tell. Delilah Morrow and her friends including Gallagher- he’s important- and others have escaped the Savage Spectacle some time ago, at least 10 months or more. The group is in hiding with some friends and looking for others who escaped at the same time. They are the cryptids and humans hate them or use them for entertainment (kind of reminded me of a Hunger Games/X-men blending in that sense.) The story is told from different time periods by two different characters. One, of course, is Delilah and the other is Rebecca Essig. The past is the 1980s and Delilah lives in the present day- not exactly sure when this present day is, but- both of them seem to be telling parts of the same story at different times at events that all come together in the end. This was really confusing at first, maybe because I haven’t read the other two books yet, but I started to catch on.
A lot of the story is about Delilah and the fact that she is pregnant. Oh yeah, 10 months pregnant because she is part fae. Also, this is Gallagher’s baby, which is a huge issue and they didn’t plan it, they were…coerced maybe I can say, into conceiving this child. I think Gallagher is a bad boy with a good heart. He tries to comfort and protect Delilah but she is resentful and distant towards him. There’s not really romance per se, just that it sort of lingers in the background between them.
What this book does have is violence. Lots of it. A friend who has read all the books told me that the whole series is assaulting to the readers sense of morality. This is a perplexing and unique story. Since I am not sure I might give away too much, I’ll stop here.
As far as my actual review of the book? Well, I already said I was going to get the other two and read the whole trilogy. Not even knowing the backstory, I absolutely loved this book!!! It is fascinating and complex. It is tender at times and also full of malice. The ending was bizarre for me. That is not the right word. I mean, it made sense, but it wasn’t what I thought it would be. And it wasn’t pretty.
All in all, without having read the first two books, I would say this book is a definite must read for folks who like dark  fantasy or dystopian books. I give this book a 5/5.
This book was given to me by the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

This is yet another book I’ve innocently dived into, unaware it was part of a series. “Series” can mean a number of things, from stand-alone complete-in-themselves novels set in the same universe to one long story that extends over several volumes. Recently I listened to an interview with Peter Jackson in which he discussed the decision to not put a recap at the beginning of The Two Towers, the second part of The Lord of the Rings. He felt that one year between film was a short enough time for viewers (those few not intimately familiar with the books) to remember and anyone who went to see it without having seen or read The Fellowship of the Ring, oh well… I admit to not being as careful as I might about checking to see if a book is a sequel, so I rely on the skill of the author to furnish necessary backstory without inundating me with it, and to draw me into the story so that even if I have to work a little harder to figure out what has gone before, I’m already hooked. Rachel Vincent’s Fury definitely falls into this category. For the first couple of chapters I vacillated between “this is a sequel and I can’t keep straight who and what all these characters are” to “this is a stand-alone that brilliantly weaves the backstory into the present, trusting the reader to gradually put it all together.” The book begins with parallel stories from the past and present. In the past, we learn of a mysterious rash of murders that leave one child survivor, always a six-year-old. In the present, a small band of cryptids (werewolves, redcaps, oracles, a minotaur, and the like), having escaped a brutal captivity, struggle to maintain their freedom while tracking down their abusers. Their journeys kept me reading on, dying of curiosity about how the two story lines would come together, and I was quickly so in love with these characters that discovering there were not one but two previous novels filled me not with disappointment but anticipation. There’s lots more, even if I read them in the wrong order. You, on the other hand, can reap the benefit of my experience and start at the beginning. In some ways, this book made me think of the flip side of Seanan McGuire’s “Incryptid” series, which I like very much and have reviewed elsewhere. In McGuire’s world, as Vincent’s, these nonhuman people are at tremendous risk from the mundane world, only there is an extended family devoted to their protection and preservation. While it’s a terrible shame such heroes do not exist in the world of Fury, here the cryptids are their own saviors, which makes for a different but no less satisfying tale. The usual disclaimer: I received an advance reading copy of this book, but no one bribed me to say anything in particular about it

Absolutely Captivating! I hate reviews with spoilers so you won't read any here. All you'll get is my humble opinion about the quality of this novel. I have previously read Rachel Vincent’s Shifter series and thoroughly enjoyed it, so I was excited to read Fury. Ms. Vincent did not disappoint. Because I wanted to get the full backstory, I read the first two books in this trilogy, Menagerie and Spectacle before I read Fury. All three books can be read as standalones, but I do suggest reading them in sequence. Fury is absolutely captivating! The characters are rich and the plot is engrossing. The main character, Delilah, is a wonder, literally and Gallagher is her perfect counterpart. I was pulling for Delilah and the cryptids the entire way. Don’t know what a crytid is: Read this series. The plot twists are amazing. Fury is written from two perspectives: past and present. Rebecca is the primary character in the past. Delilah and her cryptid friends are featured in the present. The past and present are brought together in a totally ingenious manner. There is some graphic violence depicted but it isn’t gratuitous. It is central to the story. Fury is the perfect culmination of an excellent trilogy. Fury’s ending is emotional and unexpected, but leaves some unanswered questions regarding Delilah’s band of crytid friends. Maybe we’ll see a spinoff??? I was chosen to read an advance copy of this book by Mira Publishing, however the opinions expressed in this review are 100% mine and mine alone.

Well, I'm definitely CONFLICTED. Vincent wrote a dark, complex and intricate world that is mind blowing, highlighting the deepest failings and depravities of humanity. In this tale, you are utterly engulfed by the characters plight with the hopes that some recompenses are provided for the tragedies that these characters had to endure. I, for one, loved and hated the conclusion. Loved it, because Vincent excels at ripping your emotions to their breaking point. But in the end, it was such a bitter sweet sorrow (this is where I leave out any possibilities of a spoiler)... and that is not what I want to invest three books worth of my reading time into only to have it end like that. That in a nutshell is my conflicted feeling on Fury and the entire Menagerie series. 5 stars, even though it might not be for me, it truly is a masterpiece of writing and imagination. I received this ARC copy of Fury from MIRA - HarperCollins. This is my honest and voluntary review.

I want to start by sayig I love RVs writing. Everything about the way she writes pulls you in. I was so looking forward to this last book!!! POSSIBLE SPOILERS DO NOT READ PAST THIS LINE! I felt this book was rushed. So many unanswered events & questions!! The end just shocking!! I am so dissappointed, dissatisfied, and sad that this absolutely gripping series ended in what I feel is a deflating, unsatisfactory, just let me finish writing this book way. Please read it for the love of th e series and charaters. Mrs. Vincent, you have greatly disappointed in the way you wrote and ended this book. I have never felt like someone wanted money to end a book series until now. Have I been upset over a series/book ending? Yes! But not in this way, ever. Good luck you in your future endeavors, but I will not ever buy or even read another one of your books, which is sad to say.

This book left me speechless. A lot of things happened and not all of them made me happy. I feel in love with this series shortly after the release of Menagerie and have eagerly awaited each new installment. In case you are wondering, this is the third and final book in the Menagerie trilogy which really does need to be read in order. To say that I couldn't wait to get my hands on this book would be an understatement because I just had to know what happens to Delilah, Gallagher, and the rest of the group. This book is set up a little differently than the previous books in the trilogy. There are two timelines throughout the book where previous books had only brief glimpses into the past. This book focuses on the present day with Delilah and company but also goes back to 1986 as The Reaping began. I found the parts of the book set in the past to be interesting but I was a bit confused why the focus wasn't more on the present day. As I continued to read, things started to come together and I began to see the larger picture but the shift was a bit surprising. As I have come to expect from this series, this book has its share of heartbreak. More than its share if I am being honest. The world that Delilah and her friends are living in is cruel and unjust. They must live in constant fear of discovery and simple tasks are quite risky. The group wants to reunite with others that they were separated from during their escape but every move could jeopardize their own freedom. Delilah's pregnancy is a major focus of this story. Her pregnancy lasts a bit longer than a human pregnancy which is no surprise since the father, Gallagher, is a red cap. Neither Gallagher or Delilah made the choice to become parents but they are both committed to doing what is best for the child. It does put a strain on their relationship as they try to figure out how to move forward and what their roles will be. I do have to say that I did struggle with the rating for this book a bit. I have been back and forth trying to decide if it is a 3 star read or a 4 star read. Some things happened in the book that I didn't like but I think it is a story well told. After some careful thought, I do think that the book deserves 4 stars. I was quite impressed by the complexity of the 1986 timeline and how everything ended up coming together. I still am not completely sold on the ending and would have liked to see just a bit more than we were given but I can deal with it as written. I do highly recommend this trilogy to others. It is a really captivating tale of a world where cryptids must fear humans. I have already read some of the early books in the trilogy more than once and plan to re-read the trilogy again in the future which is rather high praise. I can't wait to read more from Rachel Vincent. I received a digital review copy of this book from Harlequin - MIRA via Edelweiss and NetGalley.

I loved how the blurb sounded so I requested Fury not realizing it was the third book in a trilogy until I started reading it. However,that didn't take away from my overall enjoyment of the story in fact I was surprised at how easily I was able to follow along and how emotionally invested I was in these characters. I didn't expect to be that affected by it because I hadn't read the previous books but I was, I so was and still am, my heart aches over some of the things that went down in this book. I wish some things hadn't gone down the way they had but I enjoyed it nonetheless and look forward to going back to the beginning.

This conclusion is simply stunning in its complexity as it winds through time giving readers the answers that have always alluded them. If the first book Menagerie was breathtaking in all its amazing nuances then certainly the second book Spectacle was harrowing as the author explored just how evil humanity can be. Now it’s back to the beginning in many ways as the terrible Reaping of 1986 flits through this story as we catch up with Delilah and her friends who have become family. Having finished this trilogy I’m left feeling both uplifted and yet strangely bereft. No longer will I cringe at the protective and oh so bloodthirsty Gallagher whose heart is clearly bigger than a mountain. I won’t be sat on the edge of my seat as the cruelly maligned cryptids yet again are forced to be base entertainment and all the while I’m quietly crying inside for these wonderful and noble characters. This journey had to stop somewhere and it’s fitting somehow that as somethings have to end there’s the hope of a new beginning. This book made me FEEL and whilst I’m usually primarily a romance reader Delilah is a character that shines oh so brightly. I leave you with no spoilers but I do hope you will undertake this journey with Delilah and perhaps you too will start to realise that somethings are simply fated . This voluntary take is of a copy I requested from Netgalley and my thoughts and comments are honest and I believe fair
