Fury's Death Reviews

  • Kitty Kat

    I’ve been looking forward to this next book in the amazing Fury series. Meg is the third Fury sister and all about sex and fun and no commitment. She has harboured a liking for Dani Morana, otherwise known as Death. The feeling is mutual but neither have acted on it over the centuries. Huge and disturbing changes in the world, caused by Dis (Chaos), make everyone re-evaluate and maybe, just maybe the pair can become important to each other.

    I’ve been looking forward to this next book in the amazing Fury series. Meg is the third Fury sister and all about sex and fun and no commitment. She has harboured a liking for Dani Morana, otherwise known as Death. The feeling is mutual but neither have acted on it over the centuries. Huge and disturbing changes in the world, caused by Dis (Chaos), make everyone re-evaluate and maybe, just maybe the pair can become important to each other.

    I enjoyed finding out more about Afterlife and the complexities of the organisation and the departments run by each god. Meg and Dani play a big part in how it reacts to the problems caused by Dis. This allowed us to see how the women changed as a result of the challenges they were faced with. Meg is more than the facade she has shown to the world thus far. And as for Dani- I never imagined I would ever say that Death was adorable, but in this case it is oh so true. I loved her. There are some very hot sex scenes that are filled with emotion and variety. They really add to the story and make us see just how important Meg and Dani have become to each other.

    Brey Willows has again managed to weave a brilliant story using myths, ancient gods and a present day story that is fascinating and unique. A well deserved 5 Stars!

    I was given this ARC in return for an honest review.

    The world is slowly falling into chaos, and Meg finds her usual lifestyle of excess falling short and leaving her feeling empty and unsatisfied. She turns to her longtime friend Dani for advice and comfort. Dani is lonely, and going through some big changes in her own life, she's happy for Meg's friendship in these trying times, but her attraction to the other woman is growing. Dani believes in finding the one person you're meant to spend your life with. Can she let go of that to be with Meg? Can she compare to Meg's wild parties and plentiful bedfellows? In the midst of chaos, can love find a place?

    I adore this series. It is just all around brilliant. I think to get the full experience, you should definitely start with book one and enjoy every well crafted moment from book one to book three. Each book follows a different couple, this book takes us on the journey of Meg and Dani (Death), but there is large portion of political drama that carries on throughout all three books. I really like these books because the romance isn't a backstory and neither is the political drama. The author writes both aspects so well, and if it weren't so perfectly balanced you'd be hungry for the one that was lacking. There is absolutely perfect balance between the two. Plus if you only like romance or only like the drama I think you will still enjoy this book! Anyone with an appreciation for excellent writing will be swooning that's for sure.

    I think this is actually my favourite of all three books. I have been dying (get it) for Death's story since the beginning. She is so intriguing and so precious. She's confident in her work but shy in her personal life. I love the little intricacies of her character, like the surfing and her car. She's just so fascinating and individual. Watching her blossom and evolve through the novel was so beautiful. She's one of my favourite characters possibly ever. My heart aches with happiness for her. Seriously.

    I love the philosophical musings throughout this book, and the others. I always come away from reading this book with so many questions and interesting things to think about.

    I'm sad to see this series come to an end. I'm sure I'll be back to read the series again and I know I'll read all future works by this fantastic author!

    I received an ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    A trilogy I hadn’t come across until Fury’s Death hit my inbox, these three are an interesting mix of fantasy and realism with a romance on top.

    In Fury’s Bridge Alectho (Alec), one of the three mythical Fury sisters, is given the job of saving the world by the Fates. She must convince Selene Perkton, an atheist philosophy professor in LA who think humanity would be better off without religion, that the gods exist and work at a company called Afterlife in LA.

    A trilogy I hadn’t come across until Fury’s Death hit my inbox, these three are an interesting mix of fantasy and realism with a romance on top.

    In Fury’s Bridge Alectho (Alec), one of the three mythical Fury sisters, is given the job of saving the world by the Fates. She must convince Selene Perkton, an atheist philosophy professor in LA who think humanity would be better off without religion, that the gods exist and work at a company called Afterlife in LA. Together they must defeat the forces of darkness threatening to overwhelm the world, and along the way work out how to deal with their obvious attraction.

    Fury’s Choice sees second Fury sister Tis having a breakdown, exhausted from the workload of punishing evil doers in a world where humans seem more crazy and cruel than ever, she is also tasked with writing a contract for the gods during their new phase among humanity. Taking a much-needed break she meets playgirl philanthropist Kera Espinosa whose medical research nearly led to a horrendous outcome. Kera now spends her time trying to do good in the most war torn and run-down places. Tis and Kera are drawn to each other, but both are unsure of the other and how it could possibly work.

    Fury’s Death brings the trilogy to a neat and perfect circle. Third Fury, party girl Meg, is capable of more than the rest of Afterlife suspect. While she loves her hedonistic lifestyle and hates the growing workload, she loves her job, and has some seriously good ideas about how the gods can better interact with humans. Death, Dani Morana, has been crushing on Meg for millennia, but while they are close friends the sexy Fury has never seemed interested. Drawn together by the growing Chaos around them Death and Fury must combine to save the world, and in the meantime become their true selves.

    The whole is an intriguing concept, light and playfully done but well researched and constructed, with enough ancient and mythological detail to make it work without ever becoming an theology lesson. If you believe in a higher being how would you react to God or Jesus, Jehovah or Mohammed, being available by email? If you don’t believe, how would you feel if the gods – all of them – materialised?

    Brey Willows has created an amusing cast from Fates and Furies to the gods of old; led, managed and bullied along by Z, (Zeus). The gods are extremely well done, literally personifying the characteristics we associate with them, drawn with wit and humour, they are exactly who we would expect them to be. God (that’s the Christian God, he’s called God) is a bit stuffy and rather serious, Jesus has some level of resentment towards his father but does well with his sandal business, Azrael is really concerned with how people perceive Hell and wants to do a complete overhaul, Death is contemplating what happens to those who believe Death is a destination.

    The romances are well done, unusual issues when eternal forces fall for mortal humans and mental concepts collide. But while the romances are central, the stories are far bigger, dealing, albeit lightly, with the constant battle between good and evil, forces of Chaos and destruction wanting humanity to destroy itself while the gods make a stand for peace, love and ecological sanity.

    Thoroughly enjoyed these; romances with a difference, fantasy set in the here and now with an interesting twist. Highly recommended.

    This is the third book in this Afterlife series. I shall immediately note: yes, you should read books 1 and 2 before reading this book here. All three books tell the story that unfolded after a scholar is confronted with the truth about Gods, Goddesses, and the like. All three books feature one of three ‘Fury’ sisters.

    This is the third book in this Afterlife series. I shall immediately note: yes, you should read books 1 and 2 before reading this book here. All three books tell the story that unfolded after a scholar is confronted with the truth about Gods, Goddesses, and the like. All three books feature one of three ‘Fury’ sisters. First book starred Avenging fury Alectho (Alec) Graves and Selene Perkton (that scholar); book 2 starred Alec’s sister Tisera Graves (and Kera Espinosa). And book three? Why, that stars that third fury sister, Megara Graves.

    It’s interesting the things that you spot when you do a tiny bit of research. Like, this series is about

    three fury sisters. Does that align with the mythology? Are Furies three sisters?

    Well. That answered that question. ‘one of three goddesses’ (though this series keeps noting that the furies are different and not gods or goddesses but something else. Course, before I spotted that ‘three goddesses’ thing, I spotted the synonyms: ‘virago (domineering, violent, or bad-tempered woman), hellcat (spiteful violent woman), termagant (harsh tempered or overbearing woman), spitfire, vixen, shrew, harridan, dragon, gorgon; Eumenides’. Dragon, eh?

    Well, that’s fun, let’s move on.

    As noted, well two things to bring things back into focus: read the prior books before reading this book; this book stars two characters previously seen in this series - Megara Graves (the fun loving one who would prefer fucking to . . . um, no, she also likes fighting, prefers fucking to reading a book – throws a lot of parties that break down into orgies), and Dani Morana, aka death.

    The actions, events, results of the prior book continue to unfold here (as in, the Gods continue to attempt to ‘walk among humans’ while the Afterlife company (which most Gods/Goddesses are members of) attempts to deal with ‘complications’ like Humanity First (anti-gods/goddesses), and people randomly ending up slaughtered. This paragraph was specifically going to be about how Dis, that Chaos goddess, was running around doing discordant stuff, but paragraph got away from me.

    Like her sisters, Megara is having something like a crisis enveloping her, unlike her sisters, it isn’t about her work as a Fury, but her . . . stuff she does when not a fury. The constant partying and stuff. Mixed in is the part where she a) doesn’t want a committed relationship; b) wants Dani but doesn’t think Dani would go for a non-committed type fling.

    Dani, meanwhile, is dealing with weird changes she’s noticing like with certain souls, and her own weird tinge of something or other I can’t be more elaborate about without spoiling. Also – she’s lusted after (loved?) Megara for centuries but isn’t the kind of person to make her thoughts known. Or something like that. Well, no, there are instances when I spotted an ‘issue’ a mile off that would be based on miscommunication but . . . didn’t happen because people communicated with each other (don’t like using spoilers in ARC reviews, but need to remember, later, what mean -

    )

    Right, I probably have a temperature of around 105 degrees, or something like that, so my brain is boiling. Hopefully whatever I’ve written here is coherent enough to be read.

    Did I like the story? Yes. Did I like the characters? Yes. Was I blown away by the graphic depictions of sex? No.

    One last thought that I had while playing with my shelves/tags for the book: While Meg has been with women, she's not a lesbian, but more of a . . . well no word was used. I imagine something like 'Pansexual' would apply. It is not clear if Dani is a lesbian or not, though her one mentioned relationship, prior to Meg, was with a woman.

    I’m a big fan of this series. As soon as I got this book, I had to read it immediately. I’m happy to say it was right up there in quality and enjoyment as the other two books were. After three books I have really grown to care and connect with all the characters in this fantasy world. If you are new to this series, I highly recommend starting at book 1

    The way these books work, each book stars one Fury sister. In this book it was Meg’s turn to shine. Meg is the fun sister who is a bit wild, but still cares about her job. While Meg continues to party and sleep with other gods, she feels she is missing something in her life. She doesn’t truly understand what it is, but she knows she always feels good around Dani. Dani is the name of Death. It is her job to collect souls from the dead and to see them delivered to their proper place. Dani is lonely as many people don’t care to be around death. She can’t help her attraction to Meg, but is too shy to do anything about it. Can an avenger of justice and Death actually work as a couple? And with Chaos unleashing her evil to the world will they even have the chance to find out?

    Dani has been my favorite secondary character from this series. She was so mysterious but something draws you to her anyway. I was so excited to hear Willows was going to have her star in this book. If anything Willows just made me like Dani even more. I think she has become my favorite character in the whole series. Willows used her imagination and just wrote her character really well. I think Dani fans will be happy with this book.

    I enjoyed the romance. It is on the slower moving side, but I liked that and thought it worked well for the book. We had to get to know Dani and Meg more, and this way it gave us time to. I think they might actually be my favorite couple of the series, though I really liked them all. There is also plenty of conflict with the gods, and Chaos causing trouble, I think Willows did a good job balancing the romance with everything else that was going on.

    I think this might be the final book of the series. Three sisters, three books, it makes sense. This book wrapped up a few loose ends with two other characters, so if it is the end, I’m happy with it. But I will really miss this fantasy world and these great characters. If you are a fan of this series, don’t hesitate to get this one. If you are new to the series, take a shot with book 1,

    So I didn't read book one or two, but I will now. I really enjoyed this book a lot. It certainly wasn't what I was expecting when I read the description but I was pleasantly surprised. It's hard to even describe this book because it's the first of it's kind I've ever read. The mix of different religions was very interesting and since I was a child I always enjoyed everything about the Greek gods so this was great. I would suggest this series to anyone that likes to read about different religions

The mix of different religions was very interesting and since I was a child I always enjoyed everything about the Greek gods so this was great. I would suggest this series to anyone that likes to read about different religions and a bit of fantasy. Who knew Death could be such a lovable character. Now I'm off to read the first two books of the series.

    This third book in the Afterlife Inc series is the last one apparently.

Although this third book has been a little dense in some parts, I don't recall this in the previous ones.

Although this third book has been a little dense in some parts, I don't recall this in the previous ones. But the story keeps you hooked and waiting for the developement of situations and with furies, deities, fates, and all the spectrum of mythological creatures, you will never know what will happen next.

    I recomend taht you read the books in order, although they could be read independently, but some parts will not make sense if you dont't have previous information.

    But I definitly recomend this series if you want a fun and interesting reading, with some philosophical issues that maybe make you reflect on some things, too.

    This is the first of the Afterlife, Inc books that I have encountered, and the premise introduced some fascinating, thought-provoking questions and issues: I was intrigued. Religion run as a big business, with a double bottom line - stability and perhaps protection of humans? Gods, immortals and humans work together, and war against each other with the righteous assurance that they are on the side of right and good. Unfortunately, characters blended into a big one-dimensional, indistinct blob (gods and immortals should be the least likely characters to be written as one-dimensional or indistinct), and the emphasis on all the sex that they had distracted from the plot, and drained the book of all of the appeal of the innovative storyline. The perfunctory sex and intimacy is communicated in a puerile manner; the violence is written in a desultory way. The conflicts are not convincing, and character moods change unpredictably and irrationally.

    Fury's Death is difficult to place in any category. The completely original premise of gods and humans working together and warring against each other seemed that it would be attractive to college-aged, open-minded readers trying to figure out life and comparing new experiences to everything that they thought they knew. The numinous nature should suit fans of supernatural books. The sentimental intentions and HEA/HFN should allow the book to be considered a romance.

    Overall, Fury's Death struck me as a bit of a mashup of melodramatic, jejune fan-fic and unresolved philosophical musings. I know there will be those who enjoy the book, but perhaps a bit too niche for broad appeal.
