My first experience with author team Geoff Habiger and Coy Kissee came through Unremarkable, a period vampire thriller with lots of interesting twists. It did not take long to uncover their affinity for genre blends, which they brew quite well together. Thus, I felt appropriately prepared when it came time to read Wrath of the Fury Blade, their second outing.

This is the tale of Reva, a talented inspector who is yanked from her day off to investigate a high-profile murder. Ansee, her new partner,

A fascinating concept well executed. I enjoyed Wrath of the Fury Blade, and look forward to a sequel. Although enchanted knives are nothing new the storytelling is rarely as good as in this one. Nice characterization and setting, too.

Excellent fantasy book. You really get invested in the two main characters. I am anxiously waiting for the next book in what I'm sure will be a best selling series.

3.5 stars. This was a giveaway book - thanks to Habiger and Kissee for the nice letter, as it so happens I received it just before my birthday so it was an unexpected surprise gift. Thank you~! :)
'Wrath of the Fury Blade' is a detective story set up in a High Fantasy setting, more specifically in a racist and xenophobic High Elf city. It was a nice story with strong, likeable characters full of interesting quirks and flaws. The authors have abviously spent a lot of time world-building and have d

Geoff and Coy make a great writing team. Their experience in RPG storytelling shows in their world-building, character-development, and plot-driving skills. The fantasy/detective story combo was delightful. I found the main characters relatable, and they were well-developed; I enjoyed how they each exhibited a unique sense of humor. The authors presented a world of complexity that includes social, political, career, and relationship issues that may feel familiar. I am looking forward to more sto ...more

Epic!

This story is incredible, I enjoyed every part, I love the changing points of use and the character development, the mystery was awesome and I definitely loved all the different clues and characters perspective of the crime, and the underlining reasons
I’m really excited to read more from this series, and I’m definitely hoping the second book comes out soon

Wrath of the Fury Blade is a bit of several things, police procedural, suspense, semi-romance, fantasy with commentary on Nazism. The characters are elves, otherwise this could be almost any book about police sleuthing to find the murderer.

I hope for the sequel the authors write a little less of a multi-genre mash up and concentrate on the characters.

This is a book that I didn't realize I needed until I found it! If you love crime novels along with fantasy this is to best of both worlds! I cannot wait for more books in this series!

Wrath of the Fury Blade by Geoff Habiger and Coy Kissee
This is the mystery thriller the fantasy genre needed to expand its horizons. This is the book Sam Vimes would read. It’s the mystery story I was looking for.

Mixing genres is becoming a staple of today’s SFF. Doing it right is not so common yet. This is where Wrath of the Fury Blade by Geoff Habiger and Coy Kissee excels. It takes the popular genre of a detective story, with all its basics: an odd couple of detectives, a mystery with twists

Following the story of Constable Inspector Reva Lunaria and her new partner, Seeker Ansee Carya, of the Royal Tenyl Constabulary, Wrath of the Fury Blade is a delightful mix of the traditional high fantasy and police procedural genres. It is a murder mystery set in the lovingly detailed elven city of Tenyl. Habiger and Kissee have crafted a city that feels authentic and vibrant, with a rich sense of history and all of the trappings of city life, down to the best spot in town for a cup of cacao.

Wrath of the fury Blade by Geoff Habiger and Coy Kissee. It is a unique in its story telling as it blends a few genre together. It’s not an unusual when you are doing it with Crimes, as this novel is doing but it goes to police procedural through fantasy creatures eyes. You get to know about the world itself and what all goes on and shows the influence that others have and their outlooks.



The book is about Reva an inspector and her new partner Ansee a problematic bedfellow who’s too stubborn and

Wrath of the Fury Blade by Geoff Habiger and Coy Kissee
This is a fantasy based in an Elven city where humans and non-pure elves suffer discrimination. A series of murders leads constable Reva to be paired with a new partner, Ansee, to solve them.
The authors did good character development.
The problem of addiction was addressed circumspectly. I had hoped the test results of Wake would have been addressed. Was it adulterated in some way and if so by whom.
The idea of racial purity and consequent

What a great read! I loved the blend of fantasy and detective story with a great mystery that goes deeper by the chapter. The world is rich and interesting, with a clash of cultures and ideologies that speaks to our modern society. The main characters are endearing, and watching them grow personally and learn to work together is immensely satisfying. Looking forward to future installments!

The murder mystery part of Wrath of the Fury Blade is decent, but with weak worldbuilding and lack of a strong message, along with massive info dumps, the whole novel drags and was a boring, confusing read.

I obtained a copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Wrath of the Fury Blade has potential, but it definitely needs a good bit of work.  Habiger and Kissee spend far too much time describing incidentals and elements of each character’s appearance, rather than taking the time to develop the characters.  It reads more like a gm run adventure game than an actual novel.  It got to the point where it was distracting and more than a bit annoying.  Readers really don’t need detailed descriptions of everyone’s hair.  Elements of the plot were left at loos ...more

Geoff Habiger was raised in the shadow of roaring lions and peacock calls in Manhattan...Kansas, not New York. (That's the Little Apple, not the Big Apple, for those of you playing along at home. And the wild animals came from living behind the city's zoo.) Growing up Geoff loved exploring the woods around his home, sneaking into the zoo (don't tell anybody), and playing baseball and Dungeons & Dr ...more
