I have waited a good long time for Fury's Kiss. This book combines two series, Dorina Basarab series and the Cassie Palmer series. Dory is the daughter of Cassie Palmer’s boyfriend Mercea.
I have loved Dory's character from the beginning, more so than the Cassie Palmer series. However, I love that the two series combine in a small way. It will be interesting to see these two series interact.
Fury's Kiss is a nonstop action ride, with a lot of written detail that can feel a little drug out at times. But I loved it! I love the growth between daughter and father, finally! I thought they would be forever at odds.
My second finally moment was when Dory and Louis-Cesare have moved to kind of hating each other to some sort of relationship. And then the villain came out of left field, I did not see that one coming.
I read Fury's Kiss in one setting, and I was very pleased with the ending. The plot was well written and kept me in suspense the entire time. Well done Ms. Chance!
Dory has taken a job to uncover the smuggling ring that is bringing illegal goods through portals from Faerie to our world. When things go wrong, Dorina wakes up in a lab in a full-on berserker rage. Fighting against Louis-Cesare, who is trying to rescue her, she doesn't even remember who he is. When Dorina wakes up the next day, she has no memories of the night before. The Vampire Senate then realizes her memories are the key to finding out who is behind the smuggling ring and who is taking out Master Vampires. The vampire senate would do anything to get Dory's memories back, for it could mean the difference between victory or defeat in the war.
