Maja (The Nocturnal Library)
Chantress Fury, the final book in Amy Butler Greenfields YA historical fantasy trilogy, continues in the same vein as its two predecessors. Its beautifully written, gorgeously detailed, deeply emotional and romantic. Greenfields writing is elegant and perfectly polished. Its something I always admired about her her style is graceful and flawless without being flashy or disruptive. She also does a lot of research, so even though her story is filled with magic, it is loosely based in reality. ...more

CHANTRESS FURY was absolutely STUNNING!! This has to be by far my favorite in the whole trilogy!! I am so sad to see it all end, and having to say goodbye to these characters. But nevertheless, CHANTRESS FURY was absolutely MIND BLOWING!!! I could not stop reading it once I started!!


Review To Come, after I can conjure some intelligible words to express myself!!...

Well, I kept on ignoring it on my library so yeah I felt guilty because I really love the first two books and I dont know why I am ignoring it.

Oh well All I can say is its good.

An absolutely perfect way to end the series, Chantress Fury was a fantastic YA read. With a mix of court politics, sweeping magic, and sweet romance, this book was wonderful and I loved it.

Lucy got stronger and smarter over the last two books and that trend continued in this book. Lucy was clever, tough, and determined to put a stop to the attacks if she had to do it herself. I thought she was lovely.

We already knew that Nat was clever from the previous books and, in this book, Nat had made sure

After the rather heartbreakingly emotional ending of Chantress Alchemy, I was so very happy to have an ARC of Chantress Fury at hand to see what was in store next! As this one is the last book in the trilogy, you might expect spoilers for the previous books happenings, so this is your warning to keep reading at your own discretion!

The beginning of the book threw me off a lil bit, because a year has passed since the ending of Chantress Alchemy, and Lucy and Nat have been apart during that time,
I was reluctant to start Chantress Fury because Chantress Alchemy and me didnt have much chemistry. Now I regret I postponed reading Chantress Fury, because I had to hurry reading it in time for blog tour and this was definitely the best part in Chantress Trilogy.


* Lucy is finally confident. Chantress was intro where Lucy was just getting to know her powers. In Chantress Alchemy, Lucy just wanted to run away and be an ordinary girl. Here, in Chantress Fury, she finally embraced being the

What I liked: Chantress Fury is a great way to end a trilogy. With so much that has happened in the first two books, it was lovely to see how everything ended up working for Lucy by the end of her story. We see the return of many of the characters that were present in the first two books, and we even learn the truth behind the origins of the Chantresses and the stories that Lucy heard about the magic of the Chantresses. My favorite part about this book is how you don't have to exactly read the ...more

Original review posted here and tour stop with giveaway here.

I've enjoyed this series with it's interesting spin on an historical period in England and a woman with powers to call the water, wind, and earth through listening to them and singing songs. Chantress Fury was a good ending to the series and finally brought back two people that I adored, even though their reunion wasn't necessarily a happy one. There were the usual court politics, danger, magic, and at the center of it all a young
A bit of a disappointment. Still, a solid good book. Review to come.

'Chantress Fury' is the third and final installment in the Chantress Trilogy - a young adult fantasy that continues to follow our heroine, Lucy, as she faces what might be her biggest challenge yet. King Henry has kept her close to him as a trusted advisor and ally as he begins to rebuild England back up to where it once was. When the King asks her to look into a murder attempt near the Thames, Lucy has no idea what's waiting for her there. The men swear they were attacked by a mermaid. As Lucy ...more
It had been so long since I finished the other two books that I had trouble remembering a lot of things. Some of it came back as I read, and some I just had to look past. But I enter feel like it really hindered my enjoyment of the book.

Chantress Fury begins 20 months after the end of the previous book. Lucy is 18; I'm not sure if Nat's age, or if I ever knew it. They haven't seen or communicated with each other in all that time, and when they finally are put in the same place, everything is

(I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review).

(This review may contain spoilers).

This was another book that I found myself drawn into really easily, despite not having read the previous books in the trilogy. I felt that the plot had quite a unique take. Although fairies are used quite a lot in fiction, I liked the fact that Lucy wasnt one directly and didnt come across as ridiculously over-powered. It was nice to see that she did have limitations in her power.

It was interesting

One thing I liked about this series is it treaded a lot of ground. History and mythologies are incorporated smoothly into the narrative, and with each new book, Lucy faces a new threat. Delves right into these myths.

I think concept-wise, my favourite plot element was the sea creatures. This isnt a mermaid book, thankfully, but the fury of the sea is the largest threat. It was a nice premise for conflict, but it was carried out in a really cliched manner. Where the Chantress books do attempt new

This was my least favorite of all the Chantress books, but it was still a very good book. I liked the ending but through most of the book I just felt like the author was having a hard time with the story. This is the book in the series that has the most fantasy in it, therefore if you don't like fantasy, this will probably be your least favorite book. I thought that the beginning was very slow, the middle was starting to pick up, and by the end the book was so interesting that you really didn't ...more

I am delighted to say that the finale in this trilogy is equally as electrifying as the other two books! In this book, Lucy is confronted with another magical mystery that is the most dangerous one yet. (I love that the author had a new mystery in each book because it keeps the story fresh and exciting.) There were so many twists and surprises in this book that I didn't see coming. I could not stop reading because I had to find out what happened next! I can't say too much more because otherwise ...more

oh man oh man oh man oh man. this book is just as good, probably even better than the second one. I loved reading it. I even stayed up till 2 a.m. to finish it despite the fact I was ready to fall asleep. I couldn't not know what was going to happen next.

There was a really great character development of Lucy throughout the series. In the first book, she was naive, young, and just figuring out her life and powers. Second book, you begin to see her becoming more adept but still hesitant and

This is the third book in the Chantress series and is written in the main character, Lucy's perspective. It includes sea serpents and creatures which some are evil and good, helping Lucy to save her mother and herself. This book also contains some romance content of Lucy and her pal Nat who she loved but can not love. The meaning of Chantress is a lady who can control the elements with songs, because of this ability, she helped King Henry at that time to defeat other kingdoms. This book is ...more

I liked the previous two books quite a lot, but this book didn't really do it for me. Lucy was getting on my nerves a lot with all the self-pitying she was doing. Despite that, she did have some redeeming qualities (thankfully) and did put all that self-pity aside to do more productive things. The romance and action were just like meh. I didn't really get into the whole Nat and Lucy thing. I think I was pretty enthusiastic about them in the first two books but honestly, I can't remember for the ...more

I was horrified when I came on GoodReads to check in this book and saw this was the conclusion to the trilogy. I felt even worse when I checked the front panel and it said that Chantress Fury was the third book. Oh well. The book alone was a great one, and I (obviously) never thought it was in a series. It was good as a single book, most likely because it was conclusive in the ended. No more thoughts about 'What next'. Overall, the plot was interesting, although some moments seemed cliché or ...more
I absolutely loved every single second of this series! Greenfield has the best combination of history, myth, and magic. This book was just as good as the first and second, I really loved the way the author tied up every single loose string! I admire an author like this, they never cease to amaze me! I loved Lucy and Nat's journey, I'm really sad to be finished with Chantress but I guess it just leaves room for another equally awesome series! ^_^ This series is going on the keeper shelf! <3 ...more

Dont be fooled by the boring cover - these books are awesome! I cant believe this is the last book in the trilogy - I definitely think there is more story left to tell. I dont know why these books dont receive more recognition. Its a great concept - someone who can cast spells by singing. Awesome. They were so well-written overall.

Solid conclusion to the series.

I liked how Lucy had to become stronger and deal with even more dangerous situations.

I enjoyed the fact that even though Lucy was experiencing romantic angst with the distant Nat, she kept mentally shaking herself and realising that she needed to focus on more pressing issues like saving England. Her pining is tempered with reality.

A nice conclusion to the Chantress trilogy. With Fury, we follow Lucy as she delves into the history, primarily through legends and myth, of how Chantresses came to be. She knows very little about her people, which proves to be a stumbling block as she struggles to help save the kingdom from the sea. Delightful and unexpected, with quite the ending!

I really like the characters in this book and I liked the first half of the book, but I felt like the very ending was rushed. I also felt like there were too many new elements introduced to the magical world too late into the game.

A satisfying conclusion to the trilogy. I read the other two so long ago that I hardly remember what the story is like, but this book clears up a lot of things, and brings in some interesting new factors to answer old questions.

This was great, much better than the middle book. Loved the explanation of the roots of chantress magic and the satisfying (but not overly pat) tying up of mysterious loose ends. I would try another series by this writer, for sure.

“Maybe I couldn't stop other people from judging me, but I could stop looking to them for approval. Maybe most people would never be able to accept me for who I really was - not the broadside makers, not the Court gossips, not even Nat - but I didn't have to follow suit.
I could still decide to accept myself.”
