No Fury Like That is a literary thriller about life and death—and the power of second chances. What is your moral compass? Julia Redner has to die in order to find her answer to this question—but is she really dead or is she being given the opportunity to rethink her life while solving an intricate puzzle of murders? And she does not miss the opportunity to exact righteous revenge! With an unforgettable cast of characters, a surprising plot with twists and turns, and a powerful, determined female protagonist, the novel takes you on a fast-paced, funny, adventurous ride, exploring themes of love, friendship, revenge and family—and the transformation of character in impossible circumstances. Ultimately, No Fury Like That is about metamorphosis, and how friendship is more important than success, love is more important than money, and family is more important than power.

Julia Redner awakens in an abandoned airport but when she realizes she is in her lounging clothes and bare feet she realizes something is wrong. Julia is actually in Purgatory. Here she learns that it doesn’t matter who you are or what you have, everyone is equal. As she starts interacting with the other people she starts to open her opinion of the world and others. I have to say that I did not expect this story to go the direction it did. Julia is one of the worst people that I have ever meet or read about. When I learned about how she got to purgatory I couldn’t really feel bad for her, in a sense she did ask for trouble. But the more I read I started liking her. She started to realize that there is more to the world and started to truly care for those around her. This is the first book of Lisa de Nikolits’ that I have read and I loved the story. There are a wide range of emotions and learning lessons throughout the story. It was easy to slip into this story and start hoping that things work out for the best for Julia. She worked so hard and I couldn’t help hoping that she got her second chance. This is a great story and one that I strongly recommend checking out. I received a complimentary copy of this book. I voluntarily chose to read and post an honest review.
I needed a change of pace from reading so many suspense,thriller, and paranormal novels, and watching Julia grow from a diva with no friends to a woman loved by some very unusual characters was a fantastic surprise that I would highly recommend. I love all the characters, even the son of bi gun evil ones, because they make this novel so much more than I expected. So far, Julia refuses to see what is right in front of her. She is dead. D. E. A. D. Dead. And in Purgatory. Miss Richy Rich is in for a rude awakening. The only way out of Purgatory is through ‘an epic realization.’ I have a feeling she is going to wake up pretty quick and I wonder…what then? I recently read a book about reincarnation and No Fury Like That made me curious for another take on second chances. I was not disappointed. I voluntarily reviewed a free copy No Fury Like That by Lisa de Nikolits.
