Staff Reviews


Furyborn is the story of two girls leading very different paths, from very different times. In one era we have Rielle, who has been forced to hide her impossible ability to control all the elements of magic. After her kingdom discovers her secret, she must compete in trials to prove she will not become the prophesized Blood Queen, or face execution. A thousand years in the future lives Eliana, a bounty hunter who only cares for protecting her family. When her mother vanishes, Eliana must uncover the mysterious disappearances of women throughout the empire, for the sake of her mother’s life. Featuring a dual point-of-view between the two women, their stories intertwine in the most satisfying way. This world is dangerous. It is dark. And Claire Legrand did not hold back when creating a rich saga full of both magic and blood.

Description


An Instant New York Times Bestseller

"One of the biggest new YA Fantasies." --Entertainment Weekly
"Empowering." --BuzzFeed

The stunningly original, must-read fantasy of 2018 follows two fiercely independent young women, centuries apart, who hold the power to save their world...or doom it.

When assassins ambush her best friend, Rielle Dardenne risks everything to save him, exposing herself as one of a pair of prophesied queens: a queen of light, and a queen of blood. To prove she is the Sun Queen, Rielle must endure seven elemental magic trials. If she fails, she will be executed...unless the trials kill her first.

One thousand years later, the legend of Queen Rielle is a fairy tale to Eliana Ferracora. A bounty hunter for the Undying Empire, Eliana believes herself untouchable--until her mother vanishes. To find her, Eliana joins a rebel captain and discovers that the evil at the empire's heart is more terrible than she ever imagined.

As Rielle and Eliana fight in a cosmic war that spans millennia, their stories intersect, and the shocking connections between them ultimately determine the fate of their world--and of each other.
