Megan’s temper lands her in Girderon Academy, an exclusive school founded in a town of misfit supernatural creatures. It’s the one place she should be able to fit in, but she can’t. Instead, she itches to punch the smug sheriff in his face, pull the hair from a pack of territorial blondes, and kiss the smile off the shy boy’s face.

I liked it. My biggest issue with this book was that it had no table of contents. That really bothered me especially considering the format I was reading it on. Btw it has 24 chapters. 3.75 star rating.

"Why couldn't I just be like other people my age? Moody but not irrationally angry?"

Fury Frayed is a fun, witty, and interesting world full of out of the ordinary teens. It has just that perfect amount of sexual tension that makes for the perfect YA paranormal romance.  We are introduced to our narrator, Megan, who has quite the temper and is quick to fight. Her mother tries to keep her out of trouble and they move from school district to school district, until finally her mother enrolls Megan i

My new favorite fantasy book!

Megan is absolutely relatable. She is funny, caring, and full of sass. The action is non-stop and the mysteries intriguing. I’ll say no more and let the following excerpt speak for themselves ;)
🔥Genre: YA, Paranormal, Romance
🔥No love triangle nor cheating
🔥No cursing and mild violence
🔥First-person heroine POV
🔥Cliffhanger: none (though I’m more than willing to buy the next book so I can meet these lovable characters again)

Fury Frayed is a quick, entertaining, and a really fun read! I highly recommend it if you love urban fantasy, mythological influence, and a dose of fun YA tropes.

I'm gonna be honest.
I don't know this author from Adam.
I've never followed her, until today. I bought her book on a splurge of random books I bought all at the same time.
What I can say, is that now that I've read her, there's no going back.
The level of paranormal, fantasy love I have overall, added with this authors writing style and also her ability to add elements I didn't see coming, God.
This book was phenomenal. So much that I had to stop my man and tell him that when we got paid, we we

Fury Frayed by Melissa Haag is a fun, adventurous tale that begins to unravel the mysteries behind a hidden town, an abandoned teen with major anger issues and an academy full of mythical creatures.

Megan, the main character, must discover who she is while attempting to navigate an unknown world full of danger. She immediately meets a cute guy, infuriates his mean-girls’ harem, gets thrown into a new and very high school cliquish academy, and stumbles almost literally upon a hottie hero.

Megan is a girl with a temper. After one too many incidents, her mother dumps her off at a house in a town where Megan doesn't know anyone. On her own, Megan picks herself up and faces her new life with guts and humor.

I liked Megan a lot. She's smart and resourceful, and realizes that she can take care of herself. That doesn't stop her from feeling lonely, even though most people tend to piss her off. It isn't long before she makes a couple of friends - and a few enemies.

I'll admit, I bought this only because I loved the JO6 series so much, and was going thru withdrawals. the premise, centered around mythology and furies, held little appeal for me.

however, I decided to support one of my favorite authors, in hopes that she will someday return to the JO6 world, and I figured I could take a chance on this new series, after all, if I hate it, I could just move on...

I did not hate it. in fact, I kinda love it. as I said, it centers around a fury. I know nothing abou

A Scorching Hot New Series!

The only thing to fear when starting a series by Melissa Haag is how addicted U will become! ;)

Fury Frayed transports readers to a fascinating world, filled with magic mythology, chilling mystery, swoon worthy slow burn romance and so many different paranormal creatures. Each of the characters have unique and engaging personalities!

Megan is a sassy little spitfire with a wonderfully sarcastic sense of Humor. I truly love this girl!

Megan is tough as nails and constantly angry. It isn't until she attends her new school that she figures out why. There is just so much to say, but none of it can be said without spoiling something. This is a new world, completely unrelated to any of Ms Haag's other series, and it is so rich with promise and potential. I'm anxious to see what's next.

I love her earlier work. Touch, The first books from the Jo6 series, the beauty and beast books under her other name. 5 star reads all of them, and the reason being the slower pace, more storytelling, more character depth. I love it when an author takes the time to make me care about the characters they're creating, and that often means delving into the mundane...the day to day. She was great at that early on, but the more I read from her newer releases (the last book in Jo6, the demon series an ...more

If possible, I'd give this book 4.5 stars. This was a very good read. The story was interesting, the main character was fun, and the supporting/background characters were well written for the most part.

Megan has a bad temper and she can't control it no matter what she does. It doesn't take much to set her off, sometimes describing someone's existence as enough to make her angry. One fight too many has her mom packing up and moving them to the rural middle-of-nowhere town Uttira. There, Megan is

What a fun and interesting new world! Fury Frayed is such a unique book that I literally cannot compare it to any others! If you are looking for a new world with new creatures and all new characters, then you need to pick this book up. It has everything you can ask for. There is tons of action, a bit of mystery, and even a bit of romance. There will definitely be areas that shock you that is for sure!

Oh… Holy… Wow…. This book left me speechless. The plot of this book is so fresh and new that I w

For those readers that loved the Judgement of Six series, you will not be disappointed with Melissa Haag's new series, Of Fates and Furies!!

I've been on the Melissa band wagon from the beginning. I've read everything she has written, and when I saw the blurb for this book, I knew I had to try it out. I was so pleasantly surprised by HOW MUCH I ended up loving it.

Plot wise, Melissa has always been a genius. This is no exception. While we don't get a HUGE idea of what the overarching plot will be,

I was pleasantly surprised with how much I enjoyed Fury Frayed. Haag’s YA novels, for me, vary from 3 star reads to 5; Fury Frayed was a 4.5 but as I can’t do half stars I thought it was good enough to bump up to 5.

Haag has once again delivered a YA novel that is not full of simpering idiots whinging about their life, instead we get a more mature feeling YA novel that is full of strong characters and delicious world building. I love all the different creatures included in the book and can only i

I'm a huge fan of the Jo6 series by this author, so I was both nervous and excited about this. Scratch the nerves. This is a 4.4 out of five star book.
If you like snarky teenage heroines, then this book will feed your craving. You might even be ready to smack someone upside the head after a few chapters. But Megan has a good reason for all her irritation. It just takes too long for her to figure it out.
Also, for someone who didn't believe in magic, she seemed to acclimate to the world of superna

A definite page-turner, read it in one day. Recommended for Percy Jackson fans and fans of Greek and Norse mythology. Very interesting take on magical creatures and their roles and purposes, which poses more existential questions like, are our abilities and character inborn or developed, and do we have control over our own destiny?

What really makes this one a great read though is the MC, Megan. A real badass herione who does not hesitate to land a punch -- or three -- just because she feels like

I enjoyed this book and all of the characters, though to be honest I can't remember too much about their names. The only thing I did find a little frustrating was how Megan (was that her name?) just keep falling over various boys. Sure, it's fine to have a crush. But there was just so much focus on her romantic relationships (or lack-thereof) that it could have easily been some sort of teen romance novel.

I did appreciate the development of Megan's power, though. How it had been there all along,

Pleasantly surprised by how great this book was, an easy and entertaining read. And I got it for free on Kindle - bonus!

Loved the blossoming relationship between Oanen and Megan from the moment she punches him. Feel there’s way more to come from those two. Also feel the author wrote the fantasy elements of the book very well meaning everything flowed and made sense. I also enjoyed the murder mystery twist to the book and my favourite scene has to be the kiss which when you read it, you’ll know

I am so excited for this new Of Fates and Furies series as Ms. Haag delves into the world of the Mythological! We first meet Megan as she is desperately trying to get out of the mess her anger has gotten her into at school yet again. As her mother packs her up and drives her out to the middle of nowhere you start to wonder how bad can she really be. We get to discover Uttira and its residents as Megan does and I just fell in love! There are those I love and even some I love to hate. So many vill ...more

Such an amazing new story line from this author. All of her books are my favorite but I have to admit this one my just top them all. Not only does she make you laugh but she also writes such a vivid scene that you can immediately picture it in your mind. I love the supernatural creatures and elements that she brings to life in this story. Her characters are full of depth and you can't help but be drawn to them.

A lovely, quick, entertaining read.

Fury Frayed had an easily followed and entertaining plot. I never found my self bored or confused, and the characters were never annoying. Megan is a relatable character and I look forward to learning more about her, her powers and family.

Megan and Oanen's (I really hope its pronounced O-nen) romance was sweet, well-paced. Thankfully, Oanen wasn't a stereotype despite his slightly broody demeanor. Oanen didn't have an unnecessary dark past (so far *squints at

I could tell from page one that this was going to be an action-paced and amazing new series! I love a strong female heroine, and Megan is exactly that. She's dumped off, like so many others in this hideaway town, by her mother and left to fend for herself. She doesn't know what she's supposed to do or who she really is. But as she comes into contact with more characters, such as the sexy Oanen and Fenris, she starts to see where this is going, and the mystery begins to unfold.
