I am little weird about reading the last book in a series. I used to gobble them up the minute they hit my Kindle. After too many book hangovers, I started savoring them a little bit more. I started reading Heir of Fury a while ago, pacing myself by only reading one or two chapters a day. Life stepped in the way for a while where I didn’t really have the time or energy to read even though I was enjoying the book. I finally had the opportunity to finish the book recently and even though my time spent reading the book was definitely choppy, I still enjoyed Heir of Fury.
Roxanne is stuck in an impossible situation where it appears there is no way things will end well. She is now the familiar of Remo, one of the most evil, tiny beings ever created. The book really picked up for me when Roxanne returned to New York, sent there on a mission by Remo. She is sent collect participants (willing or not) to be a part of Remo’s grand evil plan. This gives her a chance to reunite with pretty boy, Zantry and bestie, Vickie. Somehow she even awkwardly reunites with Mwara as well (Remo’s former familiar).
Okay, here’s my issue with Zantry. I feel like I never really got to know him, therefore I never really trusted him. I spent almost the entire book wondering if he would turn on Roxanne or if he was as secretly evil as Remo. I acknowledge that he is probably a good looking guy / being or whatever, but that wasn’t enough for me to feel a bond for him (A nod to those that read this book and know what bond I’m talking about.)
Vickie, a human, has always been one of my favorite characters. She’s that sassy friend everyone should have. (Spoiler: I thought her ex-boyfriend was going to be some evil supernatural creature, but he was just evil. Did we ever find out what happened to him? Does it matter?)
Either way, I recommend Heir of Fury to anyone who enjoys action packed stories and lots of supernatural creatures.
