Publisher's Summary

Jael Furyck isn’t happy. Her father is dead. Her uncle has stolen the throne.

And now, her uncle wants to marry her off to the fallen son of her arch-enemy. But Jael is a battle-hardened warrior, trained to kill since she was 10-years-old. She doesn’t plan on being anyone’s wife.

Eadmund Skalleson is drunk. His father is threatening him with a wife again. And this time he’s given him an ultimatum. Marry Jael Furyck or your brother returns from exile. But if Eadmund was ever going to choose a wife, it wouldn’t be Jael Furyck. Not her. Not ever.

Winter’s Fury is the first book in The Furyck Saga, a gripping epic-fantasy series that takes you into a richly woven world of warring kingdoms, mysterious dreamers, dark magic, and an ancient prophecy that emerges from the shadows to weave a dangerous web around them all....

I almost stopped listening

I almost stopped listening, because it was slow going at first, but thankfully I continued. And it was worth it. Once you get attached to these characters you can’t press pause for anything. Looking forward to book 2!

Decent

This was a very good story. However, the book was far longer than it had to be - unnecessarily repetitive in some instances. I think had I been reading instead of listening, I would have given up halfway through.

The narrator was quite good, except for her annoying habit of adding 'r' to the end of some words, eg., "saw-r".

Language!

the language is terrible- couldn’t even get into the story— such a disappointment. The narrator was great though!

Perfect blend

Action, fantasy, and suspense with a side order of romance, was this book. Worth the purchase!

Slow start

It was a slow start, but once it started I couldn’t stop listening. I have a 45min commute to work and I couldn’t wait to hear what Jeal did next.

Solid.

Takes it a minute to get all the characters and history straight. Well worth it to get into the story. Several perspectives, personalities, vulgar language. Recommended. Starting the next book

Wonderful….simply wonderful!

Absolutely loved this story and cannot wait to listen to the next in the series! Action, adventure, just a touch of romance….even several laugh out loud moments for me. And the narration was PERFECT!

Went on a bit

Sold writing, solid characters, very well detailed but just found it took to long for anything to get going action wise. To be fair it kept my interest until the end, but didn’t really get excited about anything. Also found the way the story jumped from place to place in the next sentence left you wondering what was going on in some points.

Names of characters too similar

Fairly good story but similar names of characters confusing. Long and detailed descriptions of fights boring.

Excellent start to a new series

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The characters were well developed, and I really cared about what was going to happen to them. It was great to have a strong female lead.

The narrator did a good job of bringing the story to life.

I'm looking forward to listening to the next in the series!

Great

Loved it! Charecters were well made and had good progression, would highly recommend if you like sword and politics writing.

Great characters, strong setup for a long saga

I'm surprised this series hasn't gotten more attention, on audible at least. Perhaps because Norse fantasy traditionally gets a lot of male readers and strong women are central to this story, and there's a heavy focus on relationships. The performance really does it justice. Finty Williams gets the dialogue and the atmosphere just right and her voice is very listenable. The third person omniscient perspective did throw me a bit here and there, but I got used to it. It's very well written and perfect for those who enjoy a slower pace, character focus and a long-haul epic story, because we're barely scratching the surface in book 1.
