Fury of Obsession is the fifth book in the Dragonfury series by Coreene Callahan. I really like the series, and I did like a lot of this book. I felt that Evelyn was a bit of a damsel and distress and I would have liked to see her grow more as a character. I think the immense world building also sidelined the romance in the book and that if anything this story is a bridge to the others as Callahan builds her Dragonfury world out even more. The writing is very good, entertaining, and kept my interest from beginning to end.
