"Furyborn, which is the first book in a series, was good. It was interesting, the romance was fun, with a great concept. However, with most series, in my opinion it just got worse as the series went on. I really didn’t like where the story went plot wise, and the third book just felt like a stretched out mess. So while I like the first book, I would not recommend the series as a whole "
"It’s a great read! "
"OH this, this right here, is a great book. This and the one following it. I'm struggling to find a way to write about it and give it justice. The detailed magic, the relationships between the characters and then the relationships that connect them to others that aren't even in the same timeline. The second book left me on the tips of my toes and I'm not so patiently waiting for the next book coming out in October."
