The United States is besieged by terrorists who are working from within the White House itself to overthrow the government. They have frightening weapons at their disposal, not the least of which are techniques of mind control undreamed of even a decade ago.
Graduation day at the University of California at Shasta. Eden Waring, star athlete and valedictorian, is about to address fellow graduates and family members in the school's stadium when she is overwhelmed by a terrible premonition: a DC-10, as yet unseen, is going to crash where they all have assembled.
Eden's warning and subsequent actions save many lives and transform her own life. Soon Eden is on the run, pursued by the powerful covert agency known as MORG, by a lover whom she can no longer trust, and by the obsessed, tormented man who was married to Gillian Bellaver, the mother Eden never knew.
Possessed by powers Gillian did not have, powers that Eden has always repressed, she is forced to realize her true psychic potential, that of an Avatar. In order to save her own life and the lives of millions of Americans, she must track a complex plot from the rangeland of Montana to the deep South and ultimately to the Oval Office.
What did you like best about The Fury and the Terror? What did you like least?
I honestly haven't finished this book yet. Not even close. I think I'm only 2 hours in, but the narrator is the WORST I've ever heard. I don't think I can go on. The story seems ok. I loved "The Fury,' but I really don't think I can list to this sequel any more. I have 16+ hours to go, and the narrator seems almost robotic.
How could the performance have been better?
Hire someone else to read the book. Seriously, anyone else.
Was The Fury and the Terror worth the listening time?
I have 16+ hours to go, and the narrator is so awful I don't think I can go on.
