Review: Grace and Fury
In a world where women have no rights, sisters Serina and Nomi Tessaro face two very different fates: one in the palace, the other in prison.
Serina has been groomed her whole life to become a Grace - someone to stand by the heir to the throne as a shining, subjugated example of the perfect woman. But when her headstrong and rebellious younger sister, Nomi, catches the heir's eye, it's Serina who takes the fall for the dangerous secret that Nomi has been hiding.
Now trapped in a life she never wanted, Nomi has only one way to save Serina: surrender to her role as a Grace until she can use her position to release her sister. This is easier said than done. A traitor walks the halls of the palace, and deception lurks in every corner. But Serina is running out of time, imprisoned on an island where she must fight to the death to survive and one wrong move could cost her everything.
I literally read this in one sitting and did not want this book to end. I kept stalling and stopping myself from reading time and again just so I wouldn't finish it as quickly. Can we have the next one soon? Pretty please??
What a fantastic story with strong, inspiring, empowered and badass women. It's amazing how much Nomi and Serina - more so Serina honestly - grew as people in the span of just 100 pages.
Even though I saw that plot twist coming from 10 miles away, it was so well done and executed in the end that I did not mind it at all. I LOVED this! I loved the fact that there was a romantic interest that was honestly just a very minor supporting character in all of this and that the romance factor didn't take any focus away from the two sisters and their bond and love of one another. It was so refreshing.
Thank you for this eARC!
I received this book through NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.
