Maccus Fury, a fallen angel, is trying hard to keep his sanity. It seems being an assassin might be catching up with him. Now, Heaven, or Hell, has sent a beautiful assassin to kill him. Lovely. She’s pretending to seduce him, and he’s okay with that. She’s smart and snarky––but she has no idea what she’s walked into. And he’s more than peeved that they only sent one person. They’re going to need an army if they want him dead.

Morrigan Quill is one of Hell’s bounty hunters. She sold her soul to keep her sister safe, and now she’s working off her contract by catching bad guys and dragging them back to hell. Just a hundred years to go. When Hades makes her a new offer––that’s definitely too good to be true––she can’t say no. All she has to do is kill a powerful and crazy-hot fallen angel, who will totally kick her ass in battle.

Good thing he won’t see what’s coming next.

Title:  Fury Unleashed
Series:  Forgotten Brotherhood #1
Author:  N. J. Walters
Genre:  Paranormal Romance

My Rating:  4 stars

‘Fury Unleashed’ begins the ‘Forgotten Brotherhood’ series with a hot and steamy tale of two paranormal assassins who are assigned to kill the other – for a price, only not everything is as it seems on the surface for Morrigan or Maccus.  Most of what you’d need to know before beginning this story can be found in the Cover Description.

I am a long time reader of N. J. Walters’ shifter romances, so the insta-love in ‘Fury Unleashed’ is nothing new for me, although the intensity and the reasons behind the seduction aspect might be, the raw instant attraction, instant lust wasn’t unexpected.  A large part of this story is going to be sizzling sexy times – so if that isn’t your preference in your reading entertainment, know that fact upfront.  It works given what Morrigan and Maccus are and understanding that these two are so completely the other half of the whole couple and when they connect fireworks (or lust) explodes.

I spent a lot of time during this story trying to figure out just why Gabriel and Lucifer wanted these two killed.  Good – Evil – with the same purpose, why?  The journey to get to that answer (at the ending, of course) is full of action, danger, connections, sexy times, and learning to trust – perhaps the greatest lesson of all that Maccus and Morrigan faced.

‘Fury Unleashed’ is an intense story that’s full of interesting characters, some that we may run into later in the series.  In many ways, my heart broke for Maccus and Morrigan for different reasons.  In my opinion, Morrigan’s sister was not worth the sacrifice she’d made to keep her safe.  No, not at all.  But, sisters, especially big sisters usually do what is necessary to protect their sibling.  Without giving away spoilers, I was quite content with how this couple turned out by their story’s ending.  I’m not certain how closely connected the stories in the series will be, but I certainly hope to run into them again at some point.

I own a Kindle edition of this title.
