Furyborn is the latest fantasy novel by Claire Legrand. When I first saw the blurb for this book I added it to my TBR and scooped up a copy as quickly as possible.
"Two queens will rise. One with the power to save the world. One with the power to destroy it."
That’s all I needed to hear to know I had to read this book!
The story is told in two points of view, that of Rielle Dardenne and Eliana Ferracora, two fierce women living more than a thousand years apart.
Rielle is with her best friend, the crowned prince of Celdaria when he is ambushed by assassins. She has no choice but to used her long hidden power to save his life and damn herself. Now the kingdom will put her through life risking trials to find out if she is their Sun Queen, or someone that must be executed.
Eliana is an assassin. Killing people that may or may not deserve it, all so that her family can live comfortably. But when her mother is kidnapped, she must join forces with her nemesis and rebel, the Wolf.
And so begins this epic trilogy.
I loved that the book wastes no time getting to the action. Right away you’re pulled into the lives of these two girls. And the magic! It’s bold and colorful, it is so perfect for fantasy lovers. Though it takes a while to find out how these two people are connected since they lived so many years apart, but once you do...wow, it will have you on the edge of your seat. Definitely an epic start to an enchanting trilogy. I can’t wait to see what happens next for Rielle and Eliana!
