“There was a beginning once. A beginning that started with being sold to a monster I fell for.
There was an ending once. An ending that came cloaked in bloodshed and fury.”
Eleanor Grace is a simple mortal who has the power to topple a god. She captured his heart, fed him a different future, and fought for a fantasy that wasn’t make-believe but destiny.
Sully Sinclair is a man masquerading as a monster. He let down his shields and allowed a goddess to show him a simpler path. However, neither of them could predict the war that was coming, nor the toll it would take.
A fated romance.
A fight that will finish in tears.
The age-old battle of good versus evil.
I really enjoyed the first part of the book, it was exciting and I was never sure what exactly would happen and how it would go down but that part ended a little too quickly for my liking. The bad guy was defeated kind of fast, at least in my opinion and I’m sad to say that after that it wasn’t that much of an thrilling book anymore. I still enjoyed reading it, of course since it’s a book by Pepper Winters but I also can’t say that it totally gripped me.
I’ve said it before in a previous review but three star books are so hard to review and I feel like that again. So I’ll talk about some of the things I did love in this book. The characters, for one, were amazing. I still love Eleanor and Sully so damn much. Their chemistry definitely wasn’t any less this time around and espcially Eleanor was so badass in this last book. I also enjoyed reading about Jess and Cal’s budding relationship. I would love to read a book about them.
And then there was the writing. Pepper Winters has one of the most unique writing styles ever and I can’t help but love it. She has such a way with words. There even was a chapter without any words at all. Just let that sink in. Anyways, the writing was equally amazing in Fifth a Fury and I couldn’t get enough of that.
Overall, Fifth a Fury was a good ending that I for sure liked but it wasn’t my favorite of the series, to be completely honest. I just felt like wanting… more. I’m sure every reader knows this feeling with at least a couple of books. And with this one I had more of a plot dislike than anything else. The characters and writing was amazing as always. I just wasn’t as hooked by the story in general anymore.
