REVIEW: Storm’s Fury by Nya Rayne

***This book was originally reviewed for Storm Goddess Book Reviews.***
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Summary:

A street-wise hustler, Stormy has been running most of her life from the creature that killed her family. However, when she meets Fury, a being so stubborn he could give a mule lessons, running is no longer an option. When he claims he’s her protector and the other half of her soul, Stormy would rather take her chances with the beast chasing her. His dogged determination to protect her and his seductive expertise spark to life dreams she’d all but given up on: dreams of belonging to a family, and of having a life where running is nothing more than exercise. But with vile creatures hunting her, demanding her blood, and pack members who want her head instead of her help, Stormy will have to find away to place her trust and heart in Fury’s care. If she can’t, then neither of them will have a future to dream about.

Thoughts:

In the prologue alone, you’re so intrigued about Stormy and what she’s running so desperately from and why. This isn’t explained until much later, but does still come into play. The description of their binding is mesmerizing and the connection created is very powerful.

I liked the characters, and I felt for them, but I did think that Fury repeatedly acts with complete oblivion to how his words can affect others, and Stormy reacts very extremely to everything she’s told, especially after what she’d been told all her life by her family.

This appears to be a book one in a series, but I repeatedly felt like I had missed a story because of how often and casually Fury’s brother’s experience with his mate is referenced. At first this didn’t take anything away from the enjoyment, but did start to get a little annoying as it went on.

In the end I felt that on one hand, some of the conflict was overly drawn out, while on the other hand, there was still more to the story because we’re left with some unanswered questions.

Overall though it was a really neat book, especially since I’ve never read anything involving this particular Egyptian mythology. The good guys sound pretty badass, and the enemies sound pretty gruesome, making for a very interesting world with a lot of potential.
