I really, really enjoyed this read. It was so original I couldn't not. It had everything I like in a book. Great characters - every single one of them had their own story and own distinct personality as a result of an interesting backstory. Angel's Fury immediately starts with one of the dreams the protagonist, Cassie, frequently has which prevents her from sleeping. The dreams are described throughout the book and they get more and more detailed and descriptive and sometimes, downright creepy. However, the focus of the story was the Doctor who is supposed to help with these dreams at a retreat. I felt that too much focus was on Cassie's home life at the start - it lasted for quite a bit of the book so when Cassie did eventually go to the retreat and meet the characters the were important to the story, it seemed irrelevant because I had already read so much about Cassie's home life. The rest of the novel more than made up for it though. It was a brilliantly intense and original read that always had me on the edge of my seat. I loved it and it's definitely a must read!show moreby Maryam H
