In the tradition of Divergent comes a novel about a world where negative emotions are stolen ... and only those with fury can stand up and fight.
Eighteen-year-old Josephine Luquet wakes up naked and covered in blood on the same day every year—when the blood moon is full. Josi has not responded to the "Cure"—an immunization against anger mandated by the government—and believes herself to be a threat to others.
Then she meets Luke. Luke has had the Cure but seems different than the other "drones"—and he's dead set on helping Josi discover the truth about herself before the next blood moon.
But time is running out. Is Luke willing to risk his life to be near her? Does he truly understand what violence she is capable of?
Raw and full of passion, Fury is a story of love in a dystopian world, and how much we are willing to forgive in the struggle to remember our humanity.
This is a novella-length episode of Fury. It will continue with Episode 2 on 18 March. For more information visit momentumbooks.com.au/books/fury-episode-2/.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
In the year 2065—in an apocalyptic world where humans have been forcefully cured of anger, with an antidote to sadness not far behind—a wiry teenager named Josephine languishes in an insane asylum. Sydney-based author Charlotte McConaghy triumphs with this astonishingly well-written first novella in a trilogy. As Josephine shares harrowing details about herself with a detached therapist named Anthony, we’re drawn into a frightful world where strong emotions have been demonised—and a new species of bloodthirsty beings is ascending. In the midst of this darkness, McConaghy spins the beginning of a tender and breathtakingly romantic love story.
