Book Review: Fury (Menagerie #3) by: Rachel Vincent

Release Date: October 30, 2018
from Harlequin MIRA
Goodreads | Amazon

"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."

My Thoughts:

This was definitely a bittersweet end to the series. And I guess with how heavy this series has been, I should have seen it coming, but truth be told I didn’t and it definitely hurt my heart. I have come to love these characters so much and watching them hurt even more than they already have hurt me.

I adore Delilah. She is so strong and smart and a fighter. She is coming to terms with a lot in this book, but I love how she always pushes through. And Gallagher absolutely owns my heart. I just absolutely love him and I love how bloodthirsty he can be. And Eryx! Adore him so much! I just love this entire self-made family.

I will say though, that while overall I love this series and really liked this book, to me the ending felt a bit rushed. I just….the climax came up so fast and then was just done in a snap. I also still have some questions that I would love answered. There is nothing that makes me feel like the book isn’t complete, but just things I would have liked to know some more details on and “why’s” behind. Honestly, the book just didn’t stick the landing in some ways and it really bums me out.

Overall, though, I would still recommend this series. I love these characters and the concept really is intriguing. It’s so heavy but it’s still such a good series.

  1. It was such a bittersweet ending and I didn't see it coming either. But I think the author handled it well in most regards. And as you said, it did feel a bit rushed and there were a few things that weren't wrapped up. Your review said it all! Loved the series despite the few things that didn't fit for me.

  2. This sounds like such a great series, especially with how you describe the characters, ands how much it made you feel. What a bummer that the ending felt a bit rushed and you didn't get all of your questions answered. I'm glad you were able to enjoy it overall though. Great Review Teresa!

  3. I love the cover. I didn't read too close to this review since I haven't read the series before. I didn't know all the books were out yet. Thank you so much for sharing.
