The Furies by Mark Alpert

The FuriesWhen I first picked up this book, looked at the cover and read the description I, for some reason thought it was going to be a book about fairies or witches even though it was being called a thriller.  I was pleasantly surprised to find out that I was wrong on both counts and it truly was a thriller (and a great one at that!).

John Rogers lives a very lonely life. He is divorced and doesn’t have any family. On a job hunting trip to New York he meets a beautiful woman in a bar and they spend the next few hours talking about life in general. As the night inevitably comes to an end he takes her back to her hotel. After only being there for about 10 minutes, they are attacked by a gang of men and John has no idea what is going on. He soon finds out that his new friend, Ariel, has more secrets than he could have ever imagined.

As they fight for their lives he begins to see that Ariel is not just a beautiful woman, but a strong, rebellious woman whose family and secrets go back hundreds of years. When they finally escape, Ariel has no choice but to take him to ‘Haven’ to meet her family, The Furies. With his future unknown and wondering whether he will live or die, John decides that Ariel is worth fighting for and he will do whatever he can to be a part of her life.

I really enjoyed this book and I did not want it to end. I will admit that the ending was a bit disappointing because I felt it was cut short, but I am holding out hope for another book about the Furies to continue the story.
