About Fury Focused:
Life in Uttira isn't easy for Megan. Knowing what she is hasn't helped her control her temper, an unfortunate personality trait that might just keep her from graduating. Her mood swings don't bother her as much as the weird side effects that come with them. When things start to go up in flames around her, she knows she needs help controlling her abilities. But, the only person with the answers abandoned Megan in Uttira months ago.

Megan knows she must find her mother in the real world. However, the only way out of the magical barrier surrounding Uttira is with the mark of Mantirum. A mark she will only receive if she can manage to graduate from Girderon Academy. In order to start her search, Megan needs to learn to control her temper… or die trying.

My Thoughts:
Book one is all about introducing this world of the Furies, This book is a paranormal romance. And it does not really explain how Megan managed to control her powers. It all seems like a lucky accident. All her efforts seems to be on a a wrong course. That does not make the story endearing to me at all! Plot-wise, there isn't much of a one. Having said that, this book seems to have closed the series already. However, there is still book 3, so that must be the crescendo of this trilogy. After all that whinging, it still has the compelling story telling quality which made this book a very enjoyable read indeed!

This series seems to have multiple cover arts. sometimes they get it right, sometimes it is awesomely horrible! This book hit the middle line. Not too bad.

Story telling quality = 4.5
Character development = 4.5
Story itself = 4
Writing Style = 4
Ending = 4
World building = 4.5
Cover art = 4
Pace = 4
Plot = 2
