Book Summary

(From Goodreads)

Adopted at birth, fifteen-year-old Felicia Murphy has no idea she’s the offspring of a Fury and a god of Mercy. The discovery will soon shatter her world…

Felicia’s reputation as stable and trustworthy means everything if she’s to win the grant for the troubled kids she mentors. Snakes emerging from her head, massive mood swings, and a strong thirst for vengeance do not fit into her plans. She has no time to worry about her adoptive parent’s separation and the unwanted discovery that her biological parents are supernatural freaks. She can’t confide in her friends; who would believe her?

As her life spins out of control, she allows herself to be distracted by the two new guys who are suddenly showering her with attention, pulling her in different directions.

Felicia has choices to make. Embrace the Fury and risk everything, or find a way to tame the beast.

My Thoughts

This read a little like a police report in the first chapter and I was really hoping it gets better. Fortunately, it did but there were still times that it felt like factual writing instead of novel writing. I was hooked to the story quite quickly because the first page had a good hook. The storyline was enjoyable for the most part. There were times that I got seriously irritated with the protagonist but otherwise, I enjoyed the fact that this young girl had to grow up and had to find out that she has a good and bad side and that those two sides fight for dominance.

I was kept guessing with a few things but I could predict a few things too but that’s not always a bad thing. There wasn’t much world-building except for the fact that the woods had fog close to the bad place and the good place. Felicia seemed to know which was which but how she knew is a mystery because the reader does not get the privilege of knowing that info.

Felicia seems like a nice girl that has to suddenly deal with a lot of bad stuff about herself. She did get on my nerves a few times though with her decisions that kept landing her in the same nonsense again. By chapter 38 I really wanted to smack her. She was acting like a girl with a low IQ and it’s a little insulting to young girls. One minute she’s strong and the next she’s not and we don’t really get told why she is that way or what makes her strong and what makes her weak.

The dialogue was easy to read and I didn’t pick up any issues with it. The other characters were interesting. I thought her friends would be a little more understanding when they see that she’s not doing too well and keeps disappearing but they turn against her quite quickly. The whole newspaper thing was downright dirty. The characters did help the story to move along though.

God’s Name is used a lot in this book. This is book 1 in a 3-book series. Most of the story closes off but there is an open thread left that runs into book 2. I would read the other books but it’s not a priority for me. I enjoyed the story to a degree but I wasn’t crazy about it. I would definitely say it’s more Teen than Young Adult.

I would recommend that a teen that enjoys Fantasy and Paranormal Romance would possibly enjoy reading it.
