The Fury is an enjoyable read, full of emotion and accurate details of what a small town can be like. The twist with Abby's savior was unexpected and highly enjoyable. I would really love to read a novel-length piece featuring these beings and the wrongs they seek to right.

I really liked the premise of this story and it had a good ending, I just didn't think the writing was very good. I didn't feel empathetic towards the characters and the dialog seemed stilted. Sorry, I just can't give a great rating for this one.

“The Fury” is an excellent short novella that takes the reader into the life of a “nobody” high school student, who endures a horrific event inflicted by her classmates. Her life goes from isolation to hostility from her classmates. At the story’s unpredictable and dramatic end, she learns the difference in justice and vindication. The story is well written, and to me, would make a great series, to carry on this interesting concept and to allow for more character development. Four stars!

A fast-paced short novella with realistic setting and accurate portrayal of small town betrayal. A fresh concept in Abby's saviour and a surprise twist at the end - I'd love to read more on these "beings" and their plight for true justice. Four stars for this one!

Shelves: ya, paranormal
Justice prevails in a startlingly vivid and brutal way in Lefeve's novella, "The Fury." Having been well acquainted with her Traveler's Series, I expected nothing but the best from "Fury." I was not disappointed. Short as it is, it manages to be poignant and impart a forgotten truth about humanity. Quite a lot of ambition for a book that's less than fifty pages. I only wish that this could be a prequel to a promisingly stellar novel.
