1986: Rebecca Essig leaves a slumber party early but comes home to a massacre—committed by her own parents. Only one of her siblings has survived. But as the tragic event unfolds, she begins to realize that other than a small army of six-year-olds, she is among very few survivors of a nationwide slaughter.

The Reaping has begun.

Present day: Pregnant and on the run with a small band of compatriots, Delilah Marlow is determined to bring her baby into the world safely and secretly. But she isn’t used to sitting back while others suffer, and she’s desperate to reunite Zyanya, the cheetah shifter, with her brother and children. To find a way for Lenore the siren to see her husband. To find Rommily’s missing Oracle sisters. To unify this adopted family of fellow cryptids she came to love and rely on in captivity.

But Delilah is about to discover that her role in the human versus cryptid war is destined to be much larger—and more dangerous—than she ever could have imagined
Fury (Menagerie, #3)Fury by Rachel Vincent

Well, I'm definitely CONFLICTED. Vincent wrote a dark, complex and intricate world that is mind blowing, highlighting the deepest failings and depravities of humanity. In this tale, you are utterly engulfed by the characters plight with the hopes that some recompenses are provided for the tragedies that these characters had to endure. I, for one, loved and hated the conclusion. Loved it, because Vincent excels at ripping your emotions to their breaking point. But in the end, it was such a bitter sweet sorrow (this is where I leave out any possibilities of a spoiler)... and that is not what I want to invest three books worth of my reading time into only to have it end like that. That in a nutshell is my conflicted feeling on Fury and the entire Menagerie series. 5 stars, even though it might not be for me, it truly is a masterpiece of writing and imagination.

I received this ARC copy of Fury from MIRA - HarperCollins. This is my honest and voluntary review. Fury is set for publication October 30, 2018.
