Fury (OtherKin)

Fury  - Anya Bast Fury got rave reviews in the places I read, but it just didn't quite grab my imagination. It engaged me at the start, but didn't go anywhere from there. The fun Jane Austen theming and Stepford vibe fizzled out without linking effectively to the narrative, key parts of the storyline were rushed through, and I found it quite disjointed. I kept expecting the incoherence and odd pacing to have some sort of payoff, for what I thought were dropped hints to converge on an explanation, for something to tie everything together, but it just fell oddly flat in the final third of the book. I don't expect everything tied up neatly in a bow, but just ... something?It was ok - but just ok. I wouldn't re-read it, or particularly recommend it. I would, however, happily pick up this author's next book.
