I say this with every review I write about Steven James’ books, but I can’t help it because he truly is the master of thriller novels! I absolutely loved Blur and the nail biting thrills continue with the second in the series, Fury. This reminded me a bit of the scares and thrills of Sixth Sense and the action of James Bourne. This would make such a good movie series too. I’d be first in line. I’m completely hooked on this series. There were some parts that grossed me out more than others (think some of the scenes from Blur), but y’all, I kept turning the pages. There’s kinda of a cliff hanger at the end and I need the third book now! Or at least a description of what’s coming. What do I like even more about this? It’s different. The concept of blurs is fascinating and James combines all sorts of genre elements and you think he’s going in one direction and then it doesn’t quite turn out that way. He knows how to keep the reader guessing. I also liked the theme weaved throughout the pages. It made for some interesting internal dialogue for our main guy, Daniel. Have I mentioned I can’t wait for the conclusion?? This will probably take me a while, but I’m going to start reading all of James’ books. I’ve only read the recent ones, so I’m going to start from the beginning! Who are some authors you’ve read that made you want to read all of their books?

Steven James in his new book, “Fury” Book Two in the Blur series published by Skyscape continues the adventure with Daniel Byers. From the back cover: The disturbing visions that helped Daniel Byers solve a deadly mystery have finally quieted, and the sixteen-year-old basketball star is looking forward to things settling back to normal. But when his father mysteriously disappears, Daniel realizes that the key to finding his dad rests in deciphering his chilling hallucinations. Soon, long-buried secrets begin to surface, revealing clues that could help him locate his father. But as the past collides with the present and reality begins to blur around him, Daniel faces a race against time to save his dad before it’s too late. Filled with pulse-pounding suspense, Fury continues the thrilling young adult Blur Trilogy from bestselling author Steven James. When you receive a new Steven James thriller here is the checklist to do before you start reading. Turn off the computer and the phone, make yourself a large hot chocolate, or beverage of your choice, have your snacks handy and settle into your reading chair comfortably because you are going to be there for a while and not want to move until you finish reading. With “Fury” Daniel’s dad is missing. The only way Daniel is going to find him is by deciphering his visions. Steven James has given us a tight suspense story where we are not sure what is real and what is a hallucination. The only way Daniel is going to come through this and find his father is with a lot of help from his friends. Daniel is a wonderful character that not only grows in this story but is unique in his abilities. Mr. James takes us on a ride that leaves us breathless but extremely satisfied. I liked this book and am looking forward to more with Daniel Byers. If you missed the interview for “The Knight”, a different series, and/or would like to hear the previous interview where we discussed the first two books and would like to listen to it and/or listen to interviews with other authors and professionals please go to Kingdom Highlights where they are available On Demand.

Deb's Dozen: Blurs? Daniel's going crazy? Four teens, dead wolves, strange visions. Who's Madeline? Steven James has begun a great YA series, although adults will find the books equally intriguing. The first book, Blur, introduced us to Daniel Byers whose ability to see things that aren't there—"blurs"—aids he and his friends Nicole, Kyle, and Mia in solving a murder. Fury is the second book in the Blur Trilogy.  Daniel has not had any of the blurs since the killer died in September. He is hoping things are back to normal and is anticipating the last basketball game before Christmas. While in English, a classmate asks an interesting question: "Can the protagonist also be the antagonist? I mean, is there some way for the main character to be both the hero and the villain?"  The teacher answers that it's possible, but usually the hero might be crazy or delusional or both—and mentions both an Edgar Allen Poe character and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Not really paying attention, Daniel doodles in his notebook until the bell rings. He looks down to see written there, in handwriting not his own, the cryptic words, "Lost Cove is the key." Then he gets a strange text from an unknown girl, Madeline. On the bus to the game, Daniel zones out and sees a horrific vision. Did it happen? Is it a portent? Daniel struggles to get his focus back to play the game. Although he succeeds, and scores the game winning points, he realizes that his grip on reality is again beginning to blur... Telling Nicole and Kyle and Mia about the recent strange occurrences, Daniel realizes that something has happened or is going to happen that is tied to the vision and the handwriting. Putting their heads together, the teens map out a strategy to try to discover the answers to the blurs... Steven always writes gripping, suspenseful, thrill-a-minute fiction. I really should know better than to read one of his books at night—I have a very vivid imagination and he paints incredible word pictures. If you have teens in the house, know any teens, or just want a good read yourself, buy Blur and Fury and be ready for exciting adventures into the mysteries of the mind. Steven was kind enough to give me a copy of Fury in exchange for my candid review.

**I received an ARC of this story in exchange for an honest review Daniel was quarterback and all-conference point guard in a school where sports were huge. Daniel's dad was the Sheriff, his friend was Kyle Goessell and his girlfriend was Nicole Martin. She was quirky and fun. They had been friends for years before they had started dating. Timber wolves were protected, but recently someone was poaching them. So far, four of them had been shot and left to die just for sport. Something was wrong with Daniel and it wasn't physical. When you start seeing and hearing things, sleep walking, and digging up dead pets...Daniel notices anything dealing with math and numbers. Kyle came up with the term "Blur" for when fantasy and reality, or sanity and insanity, merged on Daniel. Daniel is a young man who is questioning his sanity. He loves his dad. He is brave and caring. He is a good boy that has a lot happening to him. Through the twists and turns, he finally realizes he's not going crazy, or is he?? I really enjoyed this story, excellent plot and story telling. I highly recommend it.
