This is the first novel in the series, and WOW I loved it!
Teen Fury: Unleashed is a young adult paranormal story about a young fifteen year old adopted girl[Felicia], who discovers that, her birth mother is a Fury, and her father is a God of Mercy. This discovery is significant Felicia; this causes a number of complications in her life. I loved this story it was original, and the idea of this Felicia discovering that she is the real daughter of two mythological creatures was interesting.
The main character Felicia was caring and genuine, and was so real. She was a perfect teenage heroine, in the novel. The love triangle between Felicia, Ryder and Zane provided a lot of tension and also helped Felicia (and the reader) to understand the dichotomy that she was struggling with because of the fury side and the mercy side of her genetic make-up.
There was a mix of mythology, powers, adventure, and romance. I really, really, really enjoyed it. A quick, fun read that I absolutely could not put down! I highly recommend it. Can’t wait to read the second novel in the series!!
