FURY, The Seven Deadly Series Standalone #3 by Fisher Amelie

Revenge is an euphoric thing. Trust me on this. Nothing compares to the release you get when you ruin someone's life. When they've stolen important things. Things that didn't belong to them. Things I revel in making them pay for.

What? Have I offended you? I'm 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 I'm a brutal, savage, cold-blooded murderer and I'm here for my revenge.

I'm Ethan Moonsong...And this is the story about how I went from the world's most sacrificing man to the most feared and why I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world.

*Recommended for ages 16 and up for language and violence.
*Can be read as a standalone.

"I should've quelled the fury that rose so easily in my heart and soul and mind and hands." Fisher Amelie, once again you've amazed me, not that I ever doubted it, but I thought you'd like to know that. This woman knows exactly how to get inside your heart; how to break it and fix it in a matter of pages, lines, words. I believe she's the queen of teasing. She gives little pieces of stolen moments, moments that are sweet and adorable, and that will melt your heart completely, but these moments, they're also the perfect mix for a heartbreak and even so, I can proudly say that I am deeply and intensely in love with her books. I read the previous two books a couple of weeks ago, and I can't stay away from them. Each book has given me so many things to think about, so many feelings, and this is no different. This book has a new level of intensity, of raw heartache and hurt, but it also has so much love in it, and this love gives us an opportunity to see the beauty of life itself. Fury is the third book of The Seven Deadly series, which is focused on Ethan Moonsong's life after Cricket and Spencer. We had a few glimpses of who he was in Greed, but those few moments didn't do justice to the complex character that he is. From what we got in the second book of the series, we know he's very possessive about the things and people he cares about. We know he likes to keep things to himself. We know he doesn't like to rely on anyone, other than himself. And we know he has a character. He's not an easy person to get to know, and to love, but there is so much more we don't know about him, and that had me very intrigued. First impressions are important, but they're certainly not everything. Life after Cricket Hunt was miserable for Ethan. He had so much to suffer for, and he could only drown it all by drinking until he passed out. It helped him keep everything hidden, away from the heart to feel. It helped him keep himself numb to the pain and to the world around him. It's been such a lonely and sad life for Ethan, and this has only been fueling his anger towards everything around him. So much so that he can only think of one thing: revenge. It's not until someone finally pays attention to him, really pays attention, that he starts seeing things differently. Whoever thinks they can do everything by themselves, and that they won't ever need the help of someone who wants to help... well, they're set for a lonely and hard life. Sometimes, certain people cross our paths to help us deal with something, to help us heal, or just help us smile. That was Finley to Ethan. That was Ethan to Finley. Both needed someone to help them heal, to save them, and that's exactly what they got. We can always pray to God and hope that everything will turn out just fine. I truly believe Fury is the darkest of the three books so far. The title itself can give you an idea of the feelings you'll get while you're reading this book, and even so, you won't see it all coming. It has twists I wasn't expecting, decisions I didn't like, moments I was dreading. I can honestly see why someone might have mixed feelings about this book. It wasn't my case, but I can understand. This book is intense, dark, and painful. It exposes truths we don't often acknowledge because it's not happening to me, which is sad. It exposes the difficulties of believing in something, and what it means to act upon those beliefs. It shows us how simple it can be to make a decision, and how hard it can be to keep being true to yourself. How do you stay on the right path, when you feel you've lost yourself in the process? "Ethan Moonsong was born a warrior." No truer words were ever said. Ethan was, is, and will always be a warrior. He fights for what is right, he fights to protect, he fights to survive, he fights to love. When I say he's complex, because he has so many feelings, thoughts inside him, but still, he's pretty easy to figure out, because he wears those feelings on his face, in his eyes, his actions. It's easy to know when he's afraid, when he's happy, when he's sad, when his mind is set. The problem is, you might never find out why he's feeling what he's feeling. He's always been the one in charge of his life, he's always be the one people rely on. But now might be the time he finally lets himself fall, for real this time, and he'll give himself the opportunity to trust, to believe, and to love someone with all his heart, body and soul. "Finally," I whispered into his ear. "Finally," he whispered back. Finally. Well, if there's something particular of Fisher's books is that there's always something special that has stayed with me. With Fury, the word "finally" took a whole new meaning. It meant desperation, frustration, tiredness, need, want, trust, love. I won't say anything else about it, only that I loved the way it was always said. It had something beautiful and meaningful. Finley Dyer. Fisher, you only know how to write strong girls, and I applaud you for that. She's a free spirit, a happy girl, with a beautiful heart. She's known pain, she's seen the ugly side of life more times she'd should, and even still, she manages to help people, to care, and more importantly, to trust. That's admirable. I loved the way she managed to overcome her demons, to keep her past in the past, and not let it define her. "She was that everything. She was my foundation, my supporting walls, my attic full of secrets, my sheltering roof. She was my home." I can't tell you how much I loved this book. I was frustrated, scared, sad, content, nervous, happy, afraid, all in that order, but I can honestly say that if I could read this series again for the first time, I would do it without hesitating. It is beautiful, and it holds emotions that will get in your heart, that will demand you to feel, and each of them has something remarkable to acknowledge and learn. I can't wait to read the rest of this series. I know it will be simply amazing.

I don't know what I was expecting when I saw all of the teasers that Fisher Amelie posted regarding FURY, but it certainly wasn't anything as amazing as what I got. I should've known that Fisher was using the time to make this one epic ride of awesomeness. You don't have to have read VAIN and GREED to enjoy FURY, but if you have read GREED, then you know what Spencer Blackwell has done to Ethan and you understand why Ethan wants revenge. He feels that Cricket never would've left him if Spencer didn't somehow trick her and Ethan just cannot come to grips with the fact that Cricket is now happier than she had ever been with him. It takes the friendship of Finley Dyer to bring him back from the edge of the unspeakable. I don't know how to write this review without spoilers but I'm going to just try to explain why you need to read it. Fisher Amelie obviously has a heart for hurting and forgotten people. The books in this series bring focus to atrocities and struggles that are so far removed from my everyday 'American' lifestyle, that I cannot help but to be both awed and appalled. FURY is no different.  Finley Dyer is an amazing character. I told Fisher that Finley is the type of young woman that I wish I had been. She is strong. She is fun. But most of all, Finley is a survivor. Her life has not been easy and she has had to overcome more than most people can even fathom. In the end, though, Finley chooses not to let what has been done to her ruin her, but rather she lets it spur her into taking action. I LOVE HER. At the beginning of this book, Ethan Moonsong is a victim. He sits around getting drunk and reminiscing about all of the things that have been done to him. I loved watching Finley pull Ethan down from the ledge he has been living on. And she doesn't really do anything except be herself. Suddenly, in Finley's presence, Ethan learns to look beyond his own hurts and his own pain. He begins to see life as something worth living. He begins to see something better to fight for that his own desire to get back at those who hurt him. Revenge, however, is an extremely sneaky companion. It comes in and convinces you that you are right.  You are fighting for justice and justice is a good thing, right? Revenge and justice can then take over your life, leaving no room for good things, like happiness, and love. This is not a hearts and flowers type of book. There are no puppies farting rainbows while unicorns prance in the meadows. This is a harsh look at a reality that will cause the hair on your arms to stand up straight and your toes to curl in anticipation of what come next. But... it will forever change your life and effect your heart.

I was late to the party on Fisher Amelie's books. I'd seen the cover of Vain around a few times when I started blogging, but it wasn't until after I had the pleasure of meeting her at an author event in Richmond, VA in December 2013 that I finally got around to reading one of her books. She was so sweet, I knew I had to support her by reading her books. I fell head over heels in love with Vain and absolutely enjoyed Greed as well. I couldn't wait for Ethan's story.  Fury was a beautifully-written book. It was dark and difficult to read at times. But, in that darkness was also hope... eventually. Ethan was NOT in a great place at the beginning of this book. He was still reeling from the loss of Cricket and was incredibly angry. He wanted revenge. He wanted Spencer and Cricket to hurt as badly as he did. I was on edge, worried about where this story would go.  Fortunately, Ethan is reunited with Finley before he can go down a dark path he can't possibly find his way back from. Finley had a dark past, but she had channelled it into trying to do something good in the world. She helped Ethan see that was a far better option than the ones he was tempted by. I really liked Finley. Her history with Ethan was kinda complicated – they were friends, but not really close, but he had always seen her as more than he let on and she had a crush on him. I liked the connection between them. But mostly I liked how they were able to be there for each other and help the other change and heal. They unquestionably cared for each other and the romance was lovely, but not passionate. I'm all for sexy times in books, so I wish there had been some of that.  I wasn't sure what this book would turn into. I had no idea if or how Ethan would find peace. I was totally engrossed in the storyline and there were more than a few action scenes that kept me on the edge of my seat. There were some twists and turns. And yes, it was dark. But it was a complicated kind of dark... I know I'm being vague, and that's intentional. Fury has an untraditional path and I don't want to tell you anything that might ruin it for you. My only complaints with this book are that sometimes it felt repetitive... and somewhat unrealistic. But, if you can suspend belief for a little while, I think you'll be pleased with the outcome.

I fell in love with this series when I read the first book by Fisher Amelie, VAIN.  It was so wonderful and such a deep and truly moving novel involving a topic that will break and melt your heart.  Then there was GREED, which was so awesome and, again, displayed what an excellent author Fisher Amelie truly is.  FURY is the third book in The Seven Deadly Series, and is one I have been dying to get my hands on.  Each book in this series can easily be read as a standalone, but once you read one, you will be chomping at the bits to read the others.   FURY is Ethan Moonsong's story.  We met Ethan Moonsong in GREED, and he was a character I desperately wanted to get to know more.  The female lead in this story is Finley, and I absolutely love her.  FURY is a story filled with second chances and friends to lovers romance.  That said, OMG, FURY is sooooo much more than that.  The story centers around an issue that plaques pretty much every country in the world right now, an issue that is heartbreaking, and in the recent years has drawn a lot of attention.  It is also an issue that will break your heart.  As both Ethan and Finley try to overcome the hurts and wounds from their past, they also realize how much they need each other to do that.  You will travel from the heart of Montana deep into Vietnam, where the suspense, danger, and intensity of the novel will keep you on the edge of your seat.  Ethan Moonsong is a FORCE all it's own, becoming both a savior and an avenging angel whose vengeance brings justice to some.  Yet, to others, he is feared, a killer with a ghostly furious presence that when revealed, commands both reverence, fear, and awe.   The romantic aspect of the story was wonderful, and that aspect of the story while intense in nature, was also very clean.  I loved how things unfolded for Ethan and Finley in this novel, and the epilogue brought a smile to my face and left a sigh on my lips.  Awesome, beautiful, heartbreaking, and filled with suspence, FURY is a book you won't want to miss.

**CONTAINS SPOILER FOR GREED (BOOK TWO)** Fury follows Ethan Moonstone after his break-up with Cricket.  We experience his pain, his downward spiral, and eventual salvation.  We follow his discovery of what and who he is, of what he will do for love, and what love actually is.  Fury was a moving and heartbreaking story, on more levels than I can even begin to explain. Ethan Moonstone did not win me over in Greed, in fact, I kind of hated him, I was sure that I wasn't going to be a fan no matter what he did.  I was so wrong.  So, so wrong.  Ethan was amazing, he had won my heart in no time.  He was a character with so many dimensions I could feel him in every word, without a single mention of his thoughts I knew what he was thinking and feeling.  Ethan was a powerful character with more loyalty and determination than almost any other hero I've read. Finley Dyer won me over in Greed; there was something about her that I just instinctively cared for.  She has a brightness about her that belied the tragedy of her past.  From the minute I met Finley I knew she carried more pain that she wanted the world to see.  Finley was strong in a way few people have reason to be.  She was optimistic in a way that amazed me in light of her life.Finley Dyer was a fighter of the highest degree. Fury had me riveted from the minute I started it.  It was an intense and all-consuming ride.  Even in the moments where things seemed to be calm there was a tension floating which made me leery of the next page turn.  Until the very end of the book, I was kept a live wire of anticipation and fear.  There were moments when I was sure that everything was going to turn to devastation.  For much of the book, my heart was racing, and I simply could not keep up with the pace of it.  I needed to process the words faster than I possibly could, and that is exactly what I want when I pick up a book. Fisher Amelie was already on my list of go to, don't even need to read the synopsis, authors and she did not disappoint with Fury.  The writing was superb, the characters well-developed, and the pace never lagged.  Ms. Amelie's imagery was so spot on that I felt like I was seeing Vietnam for myself.  Though I have never experienced Vietnamese culture in any way, I now feel like I have.   There are some authors who constantly outdo themselves with the originality of their work and the way in which they present ideas that are very sensitive, Fisher is one of those authors.  She brings to light issues we know about in the abstract in a fashion that makes the reader have an awareness that will not allow for the blinders to be replaced.  I am a changed person for having read her work, and will continue to read anything that she publishes for that reason. "Now you can never say you didn't know.  You can choose only to dismiss the memory." That was the last of my fury, the last of my wrath, my bitter, confused anger. It belonged to them now.

This book deserves a million gold stars! I am stunned. Completely in awe of this book... Fisher Amelie ripped open my insides and poured my heart and soul out with this book. FURY is not what I expected. Naturally I expected greatness since this is probably one of my absolute go to favorite series but I got so much more. It was powerful, infuriating, beautiful, and exceptional. Finley and Ethan are on a whirlwind journey of danger and human depravity, one that you will not be able to leave the same as you were when you started. There are so many things in this story that impacted me and I wanted to dissect it all but I do not want to ruin anything for you. So let me first say READ IT! This book is powerful. The two main characters, Finley and Ethan, are two very broken people. Finley has lived a life of pain, heartache, and abuse. She hides her demons, choosing to see beauty and hope in life. She is a woman who is wise beyond her years, a woman who reflects beauty and brokenness. Ethan is a man who loved and lost many times over. He is a man brimming with red hot anger- an anger that clouds his judgement and sets him on a path of destruction. Yet his friendship with Finely is the thing that saves him: a friendship that turns into a beautiful and timeless love story. This book deals with some very heavy issues that I was honestly not prepared for. Each book in the Seven Deadly Series addresses heavy issues that Fisher takes in stride, showing the beauty and horrors of humanity- giving our characters choices and life lesson- lessons that the reader cannot help but contemplate and evaluate within our personal lives. Knowing this I should have expected something was coming but my heart was not prepared for the power of Fisher Amelie’s words. I cried when I read this book. I have been in places like Vietnam where Finley goes and I have done what she did in both my own state and in the nations of the world. As I read this book, I felt deeply and cried for the pain inflicted and the innocence lost. I felt Ethan’s fury- a fury that I have felt it in my bones when looking young men and women marred by tragedy. This book encompasses so much and it felt like a passionate cry for justice and peace. I don’t think I can truly express my gratitude for Fisher Amelie and the fact that she has taken yet another theme so intertwined with my heart and put it on the global stage for the world to see.  When you read this book the only option you have is to change and carry this story in your heart and mind. Ethan and Finley’s story is wonderful. They fight together, bleed together, laugh and cry together. These two are the perfect completion and counterbalance to the sadness and the anger. Watching Ethan fight his fury was adrenaline pumping. This man came from the brink once and then when he went back to that place, he gave up so much of his heart and soul to accomplish his plans. He literally embodied fury and there was nothing else he could contain in his soul-his love for Finley never wavering but changing. It consumed him until he had no way out. His love for Finley was strong but his release of his anger, despair, and hatred was the only way for him to survive. The violence at times felt so vindicated yet hollow. His path was narrow and foreboding. When he came out of the haze, the path of destruction was something he had to live with and face head on. When the chaos settles and the peace reigns, I could not stop smiling at the epilogue. Despite the pain and depravity, Finley and Ethan find a deep love, purpose, and peace together. So when you pick this book up, prepare yourself. This book will tear down what you thought you knew and you will come out on the other side better and stronger than before. Fisher, thanks for being so incredibly awesome and sharing this beautiful and haunting story with the world. It has touched my heart!
