Even though the blurb suggests a certain fierceness on Mercy's behalf, I had not expected Fury to be as wild and savage as it is. Restored to her full glory as a high-ranking angel of heaven, Mercy is just starting to realise how different she is from the humans she has been living among for millenia. Suddenly she is separate from the very people she has fought so hard to love and protect, and she alone of all the angels can see humans as anything but inferior creatures.

Originally posted on Booking in Heels.

Fury is the latest book in the Mercy series by Rebecca Lim, hot on the heels of Exile and Muse. Released on March 29th, it's the final book in what has been a hugely popular YA series. It was sent to me by Harper Collins in exchange for a honest review and while I spotted a lot of flaws, I can't fault the superb prose and description.

So, for readers who haven't read the first three in the series, Mercy was betrayed by her ex-lover Lucifer and cast down from

A fantastic ending to a great series! The writing was poetic and graceful and I particularly liked the way the opening pages were written.
At first I wasn't quite sure how the story would end but as I reached the middle of the book I began to have an inkling of how it might go down and it was a really great ending that went the exact way that I hoped it would.
I was a bit surprised that there was no epic battle in the end between Luc and Michael, but I am glad for it and although Luc wasn't kill

Caitlin: ALL THE RYAN!!!

Christine: Yes. That sums up all my feelings for Fury nicely.

Caitlin: After falling in love with not only the character of Ryan, but Ryan and Mercy together, in the first book it was so nice to see them working together again.

Christine: I have to say, I was kind of hating Mercy in the beginning of the book because she was SO HARD on Ryan about being human. Like it’s his fault f

I was really disappointed. PS: This will contain spoilers so don't keep reading unless you've already read the book or are ready to find out what happened.

First of all, the whininess of Mercy and Ryan got on my nerves after awhile. They're a beautiful couple, sure, but Mercy kept being 'I'm not good enough!' or 'I'll put him into danger!' or 'I'm a monster!' A little too 'Edward Cullen' for my taste. Then Ryan was all, 'No! Stay with me forever!' and 'I'll be your shining compass!' too much like

There could be no other ending for this series :D

Please bear in mind that this is the last book in the series and the review may therefore contain spoilers for the previous books.

Let me start by saying that there could have been no other possible ending for his series. Although in some ways it can be seen as predictable the accomplishment in bringing all the elements together for the ending was unexpected and should not be diminished. As I stated in my review of Exile all the clues are placed w
Rating: 1 Star

I can hardly believe I used loved this series when it began. What was wrong with me? Fury is by far one of the most cringe worthy books I have read. With its overplayed romance and long multi-paragraphed dialogues, it's a wonder I didn't light the book on fire after I was done. Let me tell you one thing, I love setting things on fire. The way the fire dances around and turns whats under it black, its just so captivating. But I have yet to set a book on fire. I probably won't anytim
In the electric conclusion to Mercy's journey, she finds herself in the middle of an impossible situation.
Mercy has been through Hell and back, and just when the thought things were improving, they only seem to get even worse. Not just for her, for her love, Ryan who is only human and in a battle between good and evil, there is a chance at death occurring.

Mercy's journey between this series has not been an easy one. It has been confusing, frustrating, but also life changing full of revelations.
Contain spoilers!!

Reasons I think this book was a little bit crap:
1. We never actually get to know Mercy's real name (although I looked it up later and I think it's probably (view spoiler)
2. What the hell happened with the war? Has it ended because of Mercy's (dumb!) descision?


When I first started reading the book I couldn't put it down! I absolutely loved it. I loved how Rebecca Lim writes it in terms of language and it's very descriptive! I admit I w
Soooo parts of this was excellent, but I kind felt like the ending was too easy, like a cop-out? I wanted there to be more (dare I say it? More problems and obstacles?) There was also too much of it. So dragging that I kind of grew bored. Overall, it was a good ending and I liked how most of the Archangels spoke with such reverence.

Mercy has finally broken free from the curse that's trapped her for thousands of years. She's grown a lot of the course of this series and it was nice to see her finally come into power, filled with the knowledge of who she is, where she's come from and how things have shifted since the day she fell from heaven. She's a girl, an angel, with a purpose; fueled by a need for vengeance, making a stand against a man she once trusted and fighting for her own right to live and love.

Who would have expected the last book of this series to be my favourite book in the series? Oh my gosh, I cannot even begin to comprehend what I am feeling now. All these emotions within me.

I'm feeling hyped because the book was SO good! Even the word good feels like an understatement to the book. Fury was so fast paced, it literally felt like I couldn't catch my breath when reading it!

Yet at the same time, I feel so tired after finishing the book. Fury had been SO descriptive, it was like for t
Pre-review: I'm curious. Will Rebecca Lim finally reveals the true identity of Mercy as...Jesus Christ himself or Sophia (the female side of God)?

It's just a wild guess. ^_^

Actual review here:

Sweet Lord! I'm pissed, I'm so pissed. What had happened to this angel series that shows an amount of potential? This finale of Mercy series is just mind-blowingly underwhelming and silly.

The story of Mercy plays out like this: Mercy is an exiled angel who is doomed to inhabit the bodies of different female

I rated the other three books 5 stars, but after reading the shittiest ending ever, I had to rate Fury 2 stars. I was so subdued to this book that I couldn't stop reading! Then the ending happened and ruined the entire series for me! Ryan was so frikken annoying, there was no need for him at all, it felt as if there love was forced by Rebbca Lim. Uriel was always saying that Ryan was slowing them down, he couldn't help, yet Ryan kept staying and getting in the bloody way! Her name was even revea ...more

Wow, most epic ending ever!

Fury is the final installment of Rebecca's Mercy series and I tell you, what an amazing journey it has been. The whole concept and storyline of Mercy's plight was a joy to experience.

So many twists and turns, so many surprises and secrets. Rebecca's writings are almost poetic as she pulls you along from book to book revealing as she goes how Mercy ended up in these bodies and what she has to battle to survive.

Awesome series, awesome characters that you will fall in lov

What can I say. This series has been epic, one of a kind even.

Throughout the whole of this series Rebecca has yanked my imagination into another realm of awesomeness. Mercy's struggles and body changes were amazing to say the least. And the ending, hello!

A good series haunts you even when you are awake and Mercy and Ryan were with me at every turn. I will definitely be visiting this series again in the near future.

I've been reading a fair few angel books lately because my NaNo novel is about angels and it always gets me curious to know how a writer resolves the angel/human love equation. Unfortunately, I was severely disappointed with the way this book ended and it's a testament to Rebecca Lim's extraordinary way with words that I managed to finish reading this one at all.

The Plot:
I don't think I'm the only reader who has mentioned the anti climatic way Fury ended and how upset it made them after the inc

This is the final book in the Mercy series, a thrilling end to a fantastic series that was very hard to stop reading.
We come to the battle that the first three books in the series have been working towards, I found the start of the book to be pretty slow going I didn't finish as fast as I did the previous books and I kept picking it up and putting it down even reading another book in-between which I never do, thankfully towards the middle of the book it starts to pick up and we get a bit more ac

umm, anyone else find this a let down?? actually i know a lot of people did. Me included. The only reason i read this was so i could find out what happens to Mercy and Ryan and well, i felt like i owed it Aussies to finish it. I did not enjoy this as much as the other books, and frankly, i didn't even enjoy the other books that much. Nothing against Rebecca Lim, but the writing wasn't very good, and the story didn't seem to flow. sorry, but i did not enjoy this series that much.

I gave this book three stars because I simply couldn't like it as much as the first three in the series. I found myself annoyed at Mercy quite a lot despite not feeling that way much during the other books of the series. I don't know, maybe it's because she was pretending to be someone else the other times. The story line was really quite good with lots of interesting and likable characters but I found the ending, while good, to be a bit underwhelming.

Ryan and Mercy a matched made in heaven, they are both from different worlds yet there love is stronger then any existing thing. Ryan families in danger and Mercy is still trying to figure out what she can do. They face alot of problem together, although Mercy tells Ryan to flee to safety yet he follows her still. The moment comes for her to choose between immortality or normal boring earth life?
