Review

Chantress Fury picks up a while after Alchemy ends.  Lucy is working for the King and making sure that people don’t try to put up their own walls against the King.

I love how much Lucy has grown from the beginning of the series. She has had to overcome possible loss, and trying to figure out what is going on with all the crazy events that begin happening.

My heart broke with the tension between Lucy and Nat. They’ve been away from each for so long it’s like they don’t know why the other is anymore.  While their feelings toward each other are a large part of the story, we also see quite a few magical things.  Definitely more than we have seen in previous books.

I was happy with the ending and was sad to say goodbye to these characters.

 

 


Excerpt

The other men in the circle were now coming over to us—and one of them was

Nat.  For more than a year, I’d pretended that he meant nothing to me.  Now, in

dark of this moonlit night, I stopped acting a part. I was simply myself, hungry for the

sight of him.

The King’s right-hand man, Sybil had called him, and he looked it.  He’d always

had a quiet strength about him, but now that strength was in the open.  Tall and sure and

capable, he came toward me, and what I saw in his face made my heart hammer like a

drum…

But then I caught sight of what had been at the center of the men’s circle, and

my heart nearly stopped altogether.  It was an enormous barrel, stood on its end. Just

visible inside it was a woman, and she was gagged.

Seeing her, I felt sick.  Gags and muzzles and scold’s bridles—until the King

had come to the throne, these had all been common ways of stopping a woman’s

tongue.  Especially a Chantress’s tongue.  My own godmother had been gagged before

she’d been killed, and the memory filled me with horror.

“What’s going on here?”  My voice was shaking with anger.  “You’re gagging

women and putting them in barrels?”

I could’ve asked the question of any of them.  But it was Nat I was looking at.

Even in the dim light I saw his face change.  When he answered, his voice was

guarded, almost steely.  “She isn’t a woman, Chantress.  She’s a mermaid.  And she’s

gagged because she tried to kill us.”
