As a Jane Austen fanatic, this book was an absolute delight. Zuri is the perfect modern-day match to Elizabeth Bennett: brilliant, headstrong, and not here to play.  The class struggles are also updated from inheritance qualms to real-estate value, and as Zuri questions the gentrification of her beloved neighborhood, she widens her horizons and prepares to explore a world she never fully imagined. Add in the swoony-stubborn charms of Darius Darcy and poems instead of letters, and the reader may never want to let go.

Furyborn is an epic fantasy of otherworldly beings, antiheroes, and intricate world-building. As Rielle strives to control her elemental magic to fulfill a prophecy and win the prince she secretly loves, we also follow Elianna, an assassin known as Dread, as she struggles to protect her family and maintain her morality amidst the growing darkness in her soul. Rielle and Elianna are separated by thousands of years, but both are forces to be reckoned with as they shape the futures of the kingdoms they hold dear.
