I finally read (and LOVED) my “Furyborn” ARC in preparation

I finally read (and LOVED) my “Furyborn” ARC in preparation for its release next week and I have so many thoughts on this book. I won’t be saying too much here because most the things I really want to talk about will go straight down the path to spoilers. . First, I would classify this book as more NA than YA. There is at least one sex scene that I consider descriptive enough to be NA, and enough innuendos that I personally wouldn’t hand it to someone younger than 16 or 17. That being said—for reference, if you read ACOTAR (which I also consider NA) I thought this was a lot tamer than that. . ANYWAY, I have to say that I was totally gripped by ‘Furyborn’. This is a story where plot and history need equal time as we follow two girls and their stories, which are separated by one thousand years. I would say that there was no really specific plot in this book, rather, as you get near the end you really start to get a clear idea of the big picture for this trilogy. I personally loved reading about the past and how it influenced the present. I also really just liked reading both stories (they alternated chapters) and getting to know Rielle and Eliana and their friends and families. Each chapter end felt like a cliffhanger, and that really moved me through them quickly. . The main interesting thing for me was how I simultaneously disliked and liked Rielle and Eliana. haha. I like when unlikable character traits serve a purpose to the plot or story, or character arc and Eliana and Rielle’s “unlikability” was interesting because despite everything, I was still so invested in their lives and their journey. (think more anti-heroes than characters you just hate reading about.) . I liked the action, the world, the play of politics and religion, and found that when I wasn’t reading it, I was thinking about reading it. I had one serious shock, one moment where I got surprisingly emotional, and a moment where I was relieved this story didn’t veer down a familiar YA path. Honestly can’t wait for the next book, especially to get more of Rielle’s story because ‼️. . #furyborn #clairelegrand #bookreview #flatlay
