Book Review: Fury (The Cure #1) by Charlotte McConaghy


(The Cure #1) 


Charlotte McConaghy 
Pub March 25th 2014 
by Momentum Books, Pan Macmillan 


When emotions are erased from the world, creating a civilization of mindless drones, only those with fury can survive.

On the same day each year Josephine Luquet wakes naked, shivering and covered in blood that is not her own. Under the cold gaze of the blood moon she is someone else entirely, but when dawn breaks her memories flee and she is left with only an icy horror, a burning fury. Amid a sea of drones, she alone hasn’t been cured. It will be the same each year: atrocities forgotten, truths hidden and pieces of herself left to die.
Until Luke.
He isn’t like the other drones. With secrets whispering behind his eyes and a hunger for all things Josephine, he is the only one determined to help her discover the truth before the next blood moon rises.
But time is running out. Is Luke willing to risk his life to be near her? Does he truly understand what violence she is capable of?
Raw and full of passion, Fury is a story of love in a dystopian world, and how much we are willing to forgive in the struggle to remember our humanity.

The Way I See It

As of now I’ve done 2 things…I’ve read each of the installments individually and a couple of days ago I read the whole thing straight through. The intensity of reading each episode separately is enhanced. AND when I read the whole thing through for me it was… 

There were explosions going off in my head! 

I would recommend reading this in 3 parts, don’t get me wrong the story is EPIC regardless. BUT. when you have a chance to really break it down there is less to miss. DO NOT be fooled by other (not as awesome as this) dystopians out there this is deep you’ll have to dig into your soul for this one. When I say McConaghy is a magician I flipping mean it y’all. The world building is incredible and the way you will connect to these characters is unmatched. Fury is surely going to stay with you in the years to come. 

F-ound, Josephine has always been alone. No one ever sees her especially the drones that are all around her. One night she meets the person who will change her life. 

U-ncompromising, Luke knows he has to figure out a way to save Josi. He too, carries a huge burden one he must keep strictly hidden or his world will combust.

R-egret, Josi has always haunted Dr. Collingsworth. As a last act seeking redemption he will try to amend the mistakes of the past.

Y-eild, chemicals pump through everyone's blood vessels, all that is left is unabashed fury. Luke has gone to great lengths for Josi, its time to find out just how far his sacrifices have lead everyone.

Talk about nailing it without the mumbo jumbo McConaghy will grip you by the B-A-double hockey sticks(LL)-S and take you through an amazing disturbing and compelling read. Throughout the whole series we are kept pretty much in the dark but it wasn't that super annoying dark that makes you yell “COME ON ALREADY OUT WITH IT!!” it was that exhilarating “omg I don’t know whats next but I cant wait to find out! I feel like I’m in the dark but! Who CARES?! YOLO!!” and when we get those delectable morsels…wow. When you read this get ready to be immersed in a world that is meticulously calculated and well thought out. Is McConaghy up to the challenge of making one of the best dystopian series ever? So far so good! There was a GUT wrenching cliffhanger if it weren't for that I would've given this book a five star rating!! I will be eagerly anticipating the novels to come regardless of what happens with the story at this point I know that I am committed to Luke and Josi! I cant wait to see happens! :) 

My Fav's 
Luke & Josi
These two are quite the pair so different and similar and all around perfect for each other. I’m looking forward to the next step. We know exactly who they are and where they came from. I want more than anything for these two to show everyone what they are capable of! I cant wait!!
