More About the Author

Anya Bast is the author of numerous works of romantic fiction, mostly all paranormal and mostly all scorching hot. She lives in the country with her husband, daughter, eight cats, a dog, and an odd assortment of rescued animals.

Somewhat reclusive by nature, she can be drawn out with a good bottle of red wine, classic movies, or good music. When she's not writing, she can be found trying to grow organic vegetables, shopping in thrift stores for that perfect piece of clothing, or dreaming about travel to some faraway country.

She is the New York Times bestselling author of the Elemental Witches and Dark Magick series, and is now working on a new series. The Brotherhood of the Damned will feature immortal Viking warriors, demons, witches and more.

I haven't read anything previously by Anya Bast, so I have no idea if FURY is part of an ongoing series or something the author is writing separately to release as just the two interrelated short stories (see TRANQUILITY).

That being said, I liked the concept of the shifters, of being a Shadow, of the OtherKin in general. FURY revolves around a main hero, Merrick, who is an alpha werewolf, and Nikki, who happens to be a werecougar that the pack elders want to make Queen. Hot sex ensues, followed by the inevitable HEA filled with more hot sex.

As I said, I did enjoy the concept of the story, and I probably would have moved that to REALLY liked if not for two things. One, although I recognize the "I-just-met-you-but-want-to-sex-you-up-now" plot device, especially in stories involving shapeshifters who seem to "recognize" their mates upon meeting, just a tad more introduction before the horizontal tango would have been nice. And secondly, holy crow, this story badly needed an editor before it went up! I know Ms. Bast has published a bunch of stories through large-name publishers, but due to the lack of editing, I'm guessing this wasn't one of them.

So overall, a great concept - I'd definitely be interested in reading a full-length novel or novella starring the OtherKin. Yet on the other hand, the horrible execution of this short tale kept me from loving it like I wanted to.

I liked the way the story moved from scene to scene, place to place, form to form. The sex was hot and charged. The feelings raw with lust and desire, mentally I had to fill in a few blank spots, but its nice to use the imagination, thats what books are for.

I admit at first I was a little leery. I didn't think it would be good for a short story but to my amazement it turned out to be really good. It has a good plot and interesting characters. I would recommend this story as well as Tranquility.

I think there's a good plot to the story, but I'm debating whether or not I'm willing to read the second part to see how things develop for Nikki. I'll have to admit, I found myself cringing at the incredibly clichéd dialogue, and above all else, the mistakes in the text. Mistakes that wouldn't be acceptable even for a high school essay, much less an actual novella. So this is entertaining but not nearly the quality that I've read in other romance novelists.

This is an example of a story where the concept was really good, but the execution not so much. The story starts off with Nikki (heroine) running away from two males and the impending responsibility of becoming alpha female to the Fury pack (town full of shifters, not just werewolves but were cats, too, of which she is one). Now, when they catch her, the two males, Roane and Merrick, brothers, apparently just decide that Merrick should have her and the plot settles into a nice 'lust at first sight' kind of 'let's just screw' sort of thing. In and of itself, the start isn't bad. Merrick wants her for his mate and as such intends to take leadership of the Fury pack. All of a sudden, halfway through the book, just when you think you're getting to the end of the story, a second separate plot rears its head with the introduction of a rival-town pack and the kidnapping of Roane.

I would almost have rather this been two stories. It certainly reads that way with the sudden shift between plot A and plot B being very jarring. The story telling itself was a little rocky and the numerous sex scenes all start off fairly hot and steamy, but then fizzle off as if the author a.) didn't know how to finish the scenes and so just wrapped it up, or b.) got bored with her own sex scenes and did whatever she had to to quickly wrap them up. There were some pretty consistent formatting errors all the way through the story and it could use some editing. Mostly, I wish the author would have slowed down in some places, gotten a little more comfortable writing the sex, and either separated out the plots into two short stories or mingled them a bit better.

I enjoyed the concept of this a lot and I do wish that the story had been longer and more fleshed out. The plot has a ton of potential but like most short stories of this nature they tend to focus more on the physical desires of the main character...which ends up making other parts of the story fall short. Also I don't really like the rush to have sex, if you put all the good stuff in the first scene it makes the other scenes rather repetitive. Typical main characters really, you have the overly alpha male and the 'Don't push me around' softy of a woman. Anyway it's good enough that I want to know what happens in the next one

I know it's a short story, but it reads like the middle of a good book, without the hassle of beginning or end. It's good, like everything she does, but not up to her usual standards and feels unpolished. 90% of Anya Bast books are better than this one. And I have a shelf full of them.

I might have enjoyed this story more if I'd heard of Anya Bast before and maybe read one or two of her novels. This story obviously needs a bit more context than what is here. That said, I am trying to not let that affect my evaluation of this story.

I rate this a solid "eh". In terms of voice and mechanics, Bast does a competent or better job 80% of the time, and the rest of the time falls into moments of "telling" or just plain stating the blindingly obvious. The sex is fun. Nothing special.

The story itself has two major flaws, ignoring my lack of larger context for the character. The first is that I am so sick of seeing shapeshifter romances where the couple being together is foregone conclusion because they're "mates". It's one step above "Their love is prophesied" in fantasy. I might not even have noticed this too much if I found the characters likeable, and again, I might lack a lot of context, but I found the characters to be nothing special. Cardboard macho hero, cardboard rebellious heroine who really just wants to belong. The hero, as a matter of fact, made me quite angry at the beginning of the story with a few scenes of non-consenting sexual contact being eroticized. Gross.

When the big climactic battle came, I got confused and made sure I hadn't somehow flipped past five pages. It came out of nowhere, and then was over, I guess, and I was like, "So is everything solved now? Great! I guess."

Not recommended if you haven't read Anya Bast's novels, perhaps not strongly recommended in general.
