Book Review: Fury: The Awakening

Title: Fury: The Awakening (The Scorned Series Book #1)

Author: R.E. Sargent

Narrator: Daniela Acitelli



Stephanie Duran hoped for the American dream – a husband, a family, a house with a white-picket fence – but every man she ever trusted betrayed her. Forsaken by her last lover, Stephanie finally understands that the American dream will never be her reality. Devastated and emotionally destroyed, she pours all her anger-fueled energy into remodeling her new house – the one part of her dream she could control – when an unexplained phenomenon bestows upon her the mysterious power to right wrongs before they happen. Suddenly empowered and in control of fate, Stephanie finds herself immersed in a world of strange events and discovers too late that she has unwittingly unleashed pure evil.

My Review

5/5 Stars

What started as a very seemingly normal book quickly took a turn for the paranormal. Stephanie is a relatable character with sorrows, goals, flaws, and quirks. When she finds her finance cheating on her, she’s determined to never lay her eyes on another man. Instead, she decides to throw herself into a project. That’s when she notices an old abandoned house. Swooping in on the opportunity, she coerces the owner’s lawyer into selling it to her.

Warily, he tells her that the owner insisted that no one else live in the house. Stephanie quickly learns why.

The ups and downs of this story were fascinating and left me to ponder what exactly I would do if I had the power to change things for the better. Just like Stephanie, I would ponder the idea of whether to keep it small or to do big things to make the world a better place.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
