Blog Tour: Fury by Charlotte McConaghy

Hello all. Today I have a blog tour for you. It's for the book titled Fury by Charlotte McConaghy! So if you want you can check out the tour page and schedule.
Buy the book at Amazon

Book summary: 
In the tradition of Divergent comes a novel about a world where negative emotions are stolen ... and only those with fury can stand up and fight.
Eighteen-year-old Josephine Luquet wakes naked and covered in blood that is not hers on the same day every year—when the blood moon is full. Josi has not responded to the "Cure"—an immunization against anger mandated by the government—and believes herself to be a threat to others.
Then she meets Luke. Luke has had the Cure but seems different to the other "drones"—and he's dead set on helping Josi discover the truth about herself before the next blood moon.
But time is running out. Is Luke willing to risk his life to be near her? Does he truly understand what violence she is capable of?
Raw and full of passion, Fury is a story of love in a dystopian world, and how much we are willing to forgive in the struggle to remember our humanity.

         Taking away human emotions is something I have seen before in dystopian stories, but non of these stories was so dark and intriguing as Fury. Which made this story even more interesting to me is that I'm hardly ever furious, so seeing Josi explode in the nights of the full moon is how I sometimes feel to. 

         But let's go from the start. Josephine, our main character here is living in an dystopian world where the government has taken negative emotions out of people. They turned them basically into drones, without giving them opportunity to stand up and fight. But Josi is different, every year in time when blood moon is full she loses her memories and that night is always a mystery to her. Her secret stays with her until there is Luke. A guy who seems like any other drone but still different somehow. Josi must be careful as she knows that the government wouldn't be free if they knew her secret. 

        Beside interesting character and plot I really like the way this story was written. With constant switch from past to present and discovering story bit by bit I really couldn't put it down. Only thing that bothered me was that we get a part of the story which Josi tells to someone and in that part we have Luke's POV included. It wasn't a bad thing but I really had troubles with that as he was not around. It seems illogical to me and while I did like that we had his POV I couldn't get read of the weirdness. 

        All in all, I really expect this story to become something even more interesting. 

Rating: 3.5 stars.

  1. I found Luke's point of view a little random at times. The switch between Josi and Antony was balanced but Luke - even though was interesting and needed towards the end - felt a little of of place.

    I really liked the story though! And that was one hell of a cliffhanger... I need book 2!

    1. Yes somehow like it didn't belong there at moments. Me too! Thanks Mily :)

  2. Sounds like this might need a little work but overall was a good solid read. I hope book two has all the stuff you need to really make this a stand out series for you Tanja!

    1. I really hope that the next book will bring some new views of the story :) Thanks, Ali :)

  3. Hmm this sounds like an interesting premise. I've seen fictional dystopian societies suppressing emotions before, but I'm glad this carves out some new territory. Awesome review Tanja!

  4. The concept of taking away emotions certainly is an interesting one and that this takes it to a darker place than others makes me want to read it more.

  5. I'm glad you mostly enjoyed this one anyway, thanks for giving it a try and hosting a tour stop!

  6. I am seeing some good reviews for this one and I am curious about it. I will have to just give it a go for myself.

  7. This seems like it could make an intriguing book. I tried writing one where they took away all the Anger in the world, but never continued all the way through with it. I also want to say thank you for the giveaway!


    1. Oh that sounds like a good idea! Maybe you should continue it! :) Thanks, Olivia :)

  8. Great review, Tanja! I really enjoyed the book as well. I thought different POVs really drove the book forward. I can't share much more without spoiling it for others though.

  9. Thanks for your honest thoughts, Tanja. I've never heard of this book until now so here's an extra thanks for bringing it to my attention. I've heard of the premise before as well, if not totally like it, at least similar in concept, and I'm intrigued how this one would be any different. I really would like to see POV chances that would compliment the story! Usually they drive me insane :P (Unless I totes love the characters)

    1. I have read similar book too, but this one is a bit different! :) I think you'll love Luke ;) Thanks, Faye :)
