Can be read as a standalone.
Revenge is an euphoric thing. Trust me on this. Nothing compares to the release you get when you ruin someone’s life. When they’ve stolen important things. Things that didn’t belong to them. Things I revel in making them pay for.
What? Have I offended you? I’m not here to appeal to your delicate senses. I have no intention of placating your wishes or living within your personal belief system nor do I care if you hate me. And you will hate me. Because I’m a brutal, savage, cold-blooded murderer and I’m here for my revenge.
I’m Ethan Moonsong…And this is the story about how I went from the world’s most sacrificing man to the most feared and why I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world.
Ethan- This story is really just Ethan's, and everyone else in the book plays minor roles, though I'm sure some readers would disagree with me. Initially, I thought Ethan was absolutely insane. I suppose that just goes to show what heartbreak can do to you. However, as the story progresses his character develops, and you realize that he has good, honorable qualities, though he makes some mistakes in the process and loses himself which I did not like because I was applying logic when he was using his emotions as the impetus for action. For me, Ethan was not a very likable character because of his way about going the problem which is probably what Fisher Amelie was aiming for, but I didn't change my feelings even at the end.
Finley- I wish that I had seen more of Finley. She is very selfless, brave, and generous despite her past. That's really all I can say about her really. Even when she narrated, I didn't learn anything new about her except that she was pining for Ethan, and I didn't really need her to say it to know it were true.
I had no idea what the plot was. Having read GREED, I thought that FURY was going to be Ethan trying to get Cricket back using any means necessary. The beginning of the book made it seem like this was the case, but then Ethan met Finley again and the whole plot changed to something I never expected. The plot was exciting... for a little while. But then, every scene seemed like a repeat of the last one, and I found it boring. Additionally, I thought the relationship between Ethan and Finley needed more emphasis. I wanted to experience them falling in love, and this part seemed rushed.
Overall, FURY is a good book, but it was my least favorite of the series. VAIN is still one of my favorite books, so I'd recommend reading that.
