Summary

Stephanie Duran hoped for the American dream - a husband, a family, a house with a white-picket fence - but every man she ever trusted betrayed her. Forsaken by her last lover, Stephanie finally understands that the American dream will never be her reality. Devastated and emotionally destroyed, she pours all her anger-fueled energy into remodeling her new house - the one part of her dream she could control - when an unexplained phenomenon bestows upon her the mysterious power to right wrongs before they happen. Suddenly empowered and in control of fate, Stephanie finds herself immersed in a world of strange events and discovers too late that she has unwittingly unleashed pure evil.

Loved it, sorry it see the book end.

Really enjoyed the way the story flowed, didn’t take me long to be hooked. I became very invested in the characters, very well written.
The narration was spot on, it has a beautiful flow that I don’t often hear.

This is well worth the credit, and looking forward to listening to the second book. Highly recommend.

Excellent!

I liked the premises of the storyline, it's well written and well-plotted. R.E. Sargen has done an outstanding job with character development, they're likeable, interesting and engaging. The narration by Daniela Acitelli is excellent, she does a wonderful job bringing the story to life.
I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Just doesn't do it for me

The tells a story of a woman buying a house, once she moves in her life is changed forever. Things start happening that just can’t be explain Stephanie wondering just what is happening and why, what has started these weird encounters? Just why is she taken to place and what is her job, the author gives some interesting twist and turn, danger and more. The plot is very good, the author uses way to many fillers with that in mind he lost me so many times. I do not need every move or every detail given to me, I don’t need to know how the trip to the grocery store went, she went which is great but then I don’t need to know that she didn’t shop but went to the pick and how wonderful that was in detail. The whole book is filled with this which leaves time for the mind to wonder which it does. Besides that I don’t have an issues with the author and thought he gave a very interesting plot.

The narrator does a great job, there are a lot of places where she pauses and doesn’t need to which leave the story hanging and feels like the sentence is not complete, than picks up which does take away from the flow of the story. Beside that I thought she did a wonderful job, giving true emotion, thought her character voices were really nice, you know who is talking and what they are feeling. She does give the story passion, there are no volume changes, no repeating of words,

I give the author a three star and narration 4 start.

Right place at the right time

After feeling betrayed and miserable following her another failed relationship, Stephanie finds a derelict old house standing alone outside of her usual area of knowledge. And with it, she feels a wonderful sense of peace. The old Higgins house, built in the early 1900s, had been empty for some 17 years. She decides to buy it. At first, there was a reluctance on the part of the owner, a solicitor who had been left the house by the son of the couple who built it on the condition it should not be lived in again. But then the five acres of property are sold to Stephanie on her agreement to pull the house down. Of course, she doesn't: she renovated and moves in.
Always prone to rages, she finds that strange things start happening to her when news items occur that make her angry - she transports to the past - and the book charts her increasing control of her new power and the change it brings to her life. Time travel, a touch of romance, a faithful licky dog, a female friend and a serial killer thriller keep the interest in this book flowing.

Despite lots of attention to detail, characterisation is very scanty other than for Stephanie herself and, for this reader, even she stays insubstantial as a real person. Perhaps those trips into the past rather thi n our her present personality? She becomes increasingly unlikable as the book progresses as her Messianic nature unfurls and she blunders about, good natured but interfering, doing who knows what harm to the timeline? But it was a clever idea and served to string together what were, in effect, several very short stories into one cohesive whole.
Narration by the deliciously sounding Daniela Actelli is both well modulated and intoned, as well as nicely paced. Her characters are individually voiced and her performance helps to breath life into the story, especially the (fairly brief) conversations which had a slightly stilted feel rather than spontaneous conversation.

The book was enjoyable overall but did leave some questions unanswered, perhaps to be addressed in later books in the series. My thanks to the rights holder of Fury: the Awakening, who, at my request, freely gifted me with a complimentary copy, via Audiobook Boom. Good concept, an easy read, but probably not one that I would recommend despite the tension filled last trip to the past and all of the subsequent ramifications. Will I read book two? Probably not.

I loved it. It was a lovely and exciting book

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest and open review. I loved it and found it a really exciting book to listen too. I find it hard concentrate on audible books. I mainly use audible for learning and rarely for fictional books. It had me on the edge of my car seat in the last chapter!

Different!

I love the idea of this books! Sadly, I do think a lot of it just seemed too coincidental, but that is fiction! Narration was good! That quality of the recording could have been a bit better, I think. Overall, I liked this story and the whole idea. Definitely recommend!

Not what I expected!

This book is not what I expected at all, honestly I did not think this would be something I would like! I enjoyed this audiobook very very much! The story was (for me) different, not what I would usually listen to but it gripped me and had me till the end! I recommend everyone listen to this one!!!

This narrator though 🙄

One of the worst narrators I’ve heard yet. She worried too much about perfect pronunciation and speaking slowly, that it was almost like she was reading to a kindergartner. Zero feeling. Awful! I kept listening because the story line was good, but man.....don’t they sample how these narrators would sound ahead of time??!

a riveting tale of loss and fury...& an old house

Stephanie has always dreamed of the perfect life, with a great husband, kids and the house with the picket fence. That dream is shattered when she walks in on her fiance' in flagrante with another woman. In an effort to clear her head, Stephanie takes a drive and stumbles upon an old, abandoned house that really calls to her. Further investigation reveals that the owner had died many years ago and, without any surviving family, left the house to his lawyer. Stephanie contacts the lawyer and expresses her interest in the property. At first the lawyer resists since the prior owner had made him promise to never sell the house, but once Stephanie assures him that she will indeed demolish the house, he agrees to sell. Life is good for Stephanie...until she sees a news piece about vandalism at the local library and the fury burns within her...then she's suddenly at the library just as the culprits have been their mischief. Once she puts a halt to the misdeed, she is returned to her house. Stephanie quickly realizes that she can go back in time and change the outcome of events, and she is thrilled that her life can finally have a purpose. But can she keep this up before her vendetta against crime becomes deadly...and will she survive?
This book will keep you engrossed until the very end...and leave you wanting more. What will become of Stephanie's new love interest? Guess we'll have to read the next book to find out.
I accepted a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review.

2.5

Fury: The Awakening....or Fury: Birth Of a Failed Vigilante as I would rename it. Good lord, I was pretty much bored for the entirety of this audio book. By the end, I was listening to it at 1.5x normal speed, something that pretty much destroys the listening experience (which would have been fine otherwise) and also something I generally never do. But I just wanted to be done.

The book started strongly, with the main character finding out her fiance is cheating on her and responding appropriately. But after that it took a sharp left into blands-ville. She buys the house and the reader sits through chapter after chapter of her fixing everything up. *Yawn*

Then the Quantum-Leap style time/space hops start and the reader sits through the endless tedious details of her figuring everything else, going on hops, learning to shoot, fight, etc, and then going on one last big hop before everything comes to an end. There's no over-arcing story line to make this interesting. It's just a progression of this happened, and then this happened, and then this happened until the end.

And the reader never even learns the story behind the original owner of the house or how the house because the gateway (or whatever) it apparently is. It's all just dropped. All in all, the writing is fine (though the author sucks at writing female-female dialogue) but I was, as I said, bored by the story.

Note: I received a free code for a copy of this book. I chose to listen and review it.

Good Read

Fury: The Awakening (The Scorned Series Book One) was a great read by R.E. Sargent. Stephanie Duran always wanted a husband, a family, and a house. But every man has broken her trust and betrayed her. She's devastated after her last lover forsaken her. She decides to buy and remodel a new home. But an unexplained phenomenon gives her the power to right wrongs before they happen. I enjoyed reading Stephanie's story and her powers and can't wait to read more by the author.

imaginations abound

Steph is not a good judge of character as witnessed by her two previous failed relationships. She also lacks integrity, because she lied and went against the agreement she had with the seller of the house!!!??? Super hero Steph was above my pay grade and my imaginings. I couldn't suspend that much belief to buy all the goings on. I did enjoy the fantasy. I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this and am giving an honest review. The narrator did a good job.

Decent story, below avg performance.

This was a good story for light listening. You won’t be overwhelmed, but shouldn’t be disappointed either. Pretty straight forward storyline without any real twists and not much depth, but still entertaining. The narrator has a pleasant voice and is very good at pronunciation, but struggles with inflection. Very monotone to the point that sometimes you aren’t sure which character is speaking.

I’ll listen to the 2nd book in the series just to see where the story leads.

Wonderful story!

I really enjoyed this book. The idea of jumping brought a twist to the book. The narrator done a great job telling the story. I’m looking forward to listening to the next book.
