Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Wilder and weirder than its predecessor (The Fury and the Terror), this second sequel to Farris's trendsetting supernatural thriller The Fury (1976) takes risks that will befuddle newcomers but titillate loyal fans used to his audacity. Once again second-generation psychic Eden Waring is pursued by malevolent forces hell-bent on harnessing her awesome and largely unrealized paranormal powers. This time the villain is the sinister demiurge Mordaunt, known to his adversaries as "The Dark Side of God." In the guise of stage magician Lincoln Grayle, Mordaunt has been endowing select attendees of his Vegas extravaganzas with fearsome shapeshifting powers, then using them as assassins against prominent world religious leaders. It's surely not a coincidence that these events draw Eden and her team of psychic operatives out of seclusion and into the magician's sphere: Mordaunt needs Eden's doppelganger, Gwen, who can travel through time, to retrieve the half of his soul imprisoned in a mortal form in 1926; he also plans to impregnate Eden to further his plans for domination of the earthly dimension. There are more twists and turns in the plot than in a nest full of snakes, but Farris distracts readers from the improbabilities and logic stretches with strategically timed blasts of paranormal pyrotechnics and old-fashioned gory gunplay. The ending holds a few disappointing surprises, including plot threads left dangling until the forthcoming Avenging Fury, but readers who have sojourned thus far in the strange and chaotic world of Farris's fiction will surely return for another installment. Last year Farris received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Horror Writers Association.

Format: Hardcover
She is not ordinary woman in any sense of the world. She is a powerful psychic who can call forth her doppelganger at any time she chooses, an entity equal in power to Eden Waring. She defused a bomb by using her powers but that doesn't make her a safe or happy person. The Assassin of the Impact Sector of the FBI tried to kill her once but failed and he's back for a second shot.
That is not the worst danger she faces because, after all, the Assassin is only a mundane psychopath. She has attracted the attention of Mordant, an evil being from another plane, who has lost part of his soul. He hopes to use Eden to find it so he can plunge the world into chaos. He also wants to mate with her so that the child they will produce will be quite the fury. Eden wants no part of the evil Mordant and will fight him with her last breath before she gives him any victory over her.
THE FURY AND THE POWER is a pulse pounding work of psychological suspense and chilling horror. Eden is a young woman who must cope with her own powers and otherworldly beings without succumbing to their dark side. There are many violent scenes in this book but they are appropriate in the context of the story line. The sequel promises to be even better but readers will have to wait something that will prove a very difficult task.

It always amazes me that not more people know the work of John Farris and not more people feel the need to write reviews about his books. The Power and the Fury being a case in point. This rip-roaring tale of psychic avatar Eden Waring starts with a great bloody scene in church and doesn't let up until the end of the book. The characters are wonderful guides through a story that twists and turns like a serpent. It is obvious that Farris loves to tell a great story and lucky for us is that he has the talent and a sharp and very clever mind to give us more than what we can ask for for a great thriller. John Farris has been and is still one of the best horror and thriller writers since the late nineteen fifties. Sadly most of his titles are out of print, but I guess this makes finding one of his books an even more pleasure experience. This upcoming may the fourth and final installment of The Fury series will be published. I for one am looking forward to it. Thank you Mr. Farris for giving us so much scary and thrilling entertainment.

I'm still quite invested in the characters, but the pacing seems less assured and there's less tension than the previous books in the series. Still, interesting locations and set pieces. The imagery is stellar. I really don't buy the central love triangle - to me it just screams middle age man wish fulfillment. Still, a cut way above most supernatural fiction

...but this is a series of books that I truly did not enjoy that much. It was hard to follow until you got to the last couple chapters or the next book. Don't know if I would recommend...am neutral on that one.
