Review: Torn by Fury


Torn by Fury
Torn by Fury by S.M. Reine
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Before I get into the actual review, I must thank S.M. Reine for allowing me to read/review her book for free.

As usual, Ms. Reine’s book grabbed me in the beginning and wouldn’t let me go until the end. It is so full of action that I actually groaned at the beginning as I wasn’t ready to get up and fight, again. I felt tired of the fights fought in the previous books of the series. I wasn’t ready for the blood, guts and gore, again.

Don’t get me wrong. I love the characters, demons, witches, and werewolves, a lot. I care about them and want for their best lives. So of course, when they decide to gang up together to fight the bad guys (um, angels, yeah) I am on their side. Yay, let’s go get’em! So I ignore my weak stomach and gird my loins for another war. Once I understand that that is what we have to do, I fight and cheer for them.

The gore doesn’t go away and I must admit to wishing I could hide from some scenes. But then I might miss something important.

Weary. That’s what I felt most for the characters. They have been through so much already, why prolong this?

Going into this book I thought it was near the end of the series. After all, Sarah has written the beginnings of another series. But I found at the end of the book that it wasn’t the wrapped up end. Sure some things get solved but other problems are calling for help. I felt so tired at the end of this book and it wasn’t because it was nearly 4 o’clock in the morning. And I had to pull out my latest ‘boring’ read to calm myself down to sleep. (Unfortunately, that book decided to get rousing, suddenly. Why can we rely on books to suit our needs?)

So, in the end, I find myself longing for the next book in the Ascension series. Meanwhile, while waiting for Sarah to finish it, I’ll read her new series, Preternatural Affairs. Even though many of her books contain blood and gore and fighting, I think a lot of people would like to read S. M. Reine’s books. I find it best to start out with the werewolf books, Six Moon Summers, etc. Rylie’s stories, then proceed to the Cain Chronicles. Then there is Descent and Ascension series with Elise and James. Sarah drags all the characters you know and love through all the books. I love that as you get to know everyone so intimately. Charater depth at is best! Enjoy!
