Review: Fury Frayed (Of Fates and Furies)

Author Melissa Haag 
Format e-book 
Print Length 308 pages 
Publisher Shattered Glass Publishing LLC 
Published Jan. 23, 2018 

Megan’s temper lands her in Girderon Academy, an exclusive school founded in a town of misfit supernatural creatures. It’s the one place she should be able to fit in, but she can’t. Instead, she itches to punch the smug sheriff in his face, pull the hair from a pack of territorial blondes, and kiss the smile off the shy boy’s face. Unfortunately, she can’t do any of that, either, because humans are dying and all clues point to her.

With Megan’s temper flaring, time to find the real killer and clear her name is running out. As much as she wants to return to her own life, she needs to embrace who and what she is. It’s the only way to find and punish the creature responsible. 

My Opinion 

Every once in a while you come across a new author with a book cover that looks interesting. Then you click on it to read the blurb. Maybe you even read a few reviews just in case you are still interested. Then you click on the look inside button-if you haven’t figured it out yet, I am looking at them on amazon. You start reading and when you get to the end of the sneak peek chapter/chapters you have to one-click to find out what happens next. This is one of those cases. 

Megan grew up in the human world, where she was constantly getting into fights. She gets suspended again and her momma decides that it is time to move. They drive through the night, to Uttira, the town seems normal and the new house needs a little work but she has seen worse. When she wakes up her momma is gone- having down all the responsible parenting stuff that ones does before leaving their only child to fend for themselves. 

Things get weird, her first day of school showing her just how out of her comfort zone she truly is. Megan is a fun character to watch- she never does what is expected. She is okay with being a loner, she is in touch with her inner self and she actually likes herself. Unusual for a YA book, but there you have it. She embraces life and even if she gets suckered punched she still handles it well. 

At the beginning there looks to be two love interest for her, Fenris and Oanen. Both shifters, one a wolf and the other a griffin. Both hot, both alpha males but one gets friend zone fairly early on. One comes with a lot of overbearing protective vibes the other with a harem of gals vying for his attention. 

As this is a new book in a new series, there is a lot of details about the world that we are stepping in. Sometimes those details overshadow the mystery of who the killer is or character development. Regardless, I liked the details and the world came to life for me. 

This one was a fun paranormal romance to read. Megan can hold her own and in the end there was no love triangle “praise the author for this decision.” It does not end in a cliffhanger- which is another fabulous surprise. Overall, I enjoyed reading it and since the next book in the series was already out I could continue with Megan’s journal of paranormal discoveries. 

My Rating 3 out of 5 stars 

Favorite Quote “You’re adorable, and that is my favorite rejection, by far.”
