Book Review: Furyborn by Claire Legrand

“We all have darkness inside us. That is what it means to be human.”

“I think what it means to be human is that you are able to move past that darkness and do good in the world even so.”

Follows two fiercely independent young women, centuries apart, who hold the power to save their world…or doom it.

As Rielle and Eliana fight in a cosmic war that spans millennia, their stories intersect, and the shocking connections between them ultimately determine the fate of their world–and of each other. (Goodreads)

“She was night itself reborn on earth, a queen.”

Furyborn by Claire Legrand was the BOTM of our book club Bookstagramers Philippines for the month of June. It’s one of those polarizing books which you either love or hate. I myself both enjoyed and got annoyed with it at the same time. It’s derivative of some of my favorites— Avatar (The Last Airbender), Star Wars and Lasher —and I quite enjoyed the mashup. However I felt there was a lot of confusing character behavior and too much action packed scenes with not enough world building and character development, so half of the time I really didn’t care for what they were all killing each other for.

“Perhaps if nothing else, what’s happened has taught you that there is more to life – and even to war – than simply staying alive.”

It has a really great opening chapter, enough to make you want to read till the end. So yes, I’m not 100% satisfied with it but I won’t mind finishing the trilogy just to see what happens to the main characters. I also liked the constant battle of good vs evil and darkness vs light (although with Eliana it tends to be just annoying and hypocritical) 🤷🏻‍♀️ If you like action packed stuff, steamy scenes and badass babes then definitely go for this book. 🌸

Overall rating: 3/5
