YA Review: Blood & Fury (Tessa Gratton & Justina Ireland)

About This Book:

Bloody magic. Ancient fury.
Prepare for the gripping conclusion to the 
Chaos & Flame saga, the “fast-paced, action-filled fantasy that reads like a mix of Game of Thrones and Avatar: The Last Airbender” (BCCB) from two beloved New York Times bestselling authors.

A single kiss set Chaos ablaze.

Picking up months after betrayal transformed Darling Seabreak into the long-lost Phoenix and every House regent into their empyreal form, Darling struggles to make sense of her destiny as a legendary creature. How can she, an orphan with no family, be the one to reunite the fractured houses and bring about peace, if she can’t control the magic of her new Phoenix body?

Talon Goldhoard, still in love with Darling but wounded by her betrayal, is tasked with ending the vicious war that his family instigated. With the Phoenix reborn, Talon is hopeful that the bloodshed will end swiftly. Instead, the kingdom grows more fraught, with the threat of violence ever present – especially from dark, conniving forces within the walls of his own House Dragon.

As Chaos reigns, Talon and Darling must find their way back to each other – not only to survive but to save the kingdom. Can Darling harness the power of the ancient magic that runs through her blood to bring about a new peace? Or will the fury that House Dragon fueled for a hundred-year war be too strong to break?

Blood and Fury is the second book in the two-book series that started in Chaos and Flame. The Worldbuilding of this story is incredibly unique, and that is what kept me reading the most. The love story is cute, and I root for it in both books; the magic system and political setup of Pyrlanum are what carry this political two-book fantasy.
Audiobook Review: Having dual narrators for the characters was the perfect way to handle this story. I could easily follow along when we switched chapters and character voices. It’s well worth the listen.
