I've started to have dreams while I'm awake. I remember music I've never heard ... I've got all this extra stuff in my head, but I'm forgetting things from my own life. I feel like I'm being taken over.
Cassie Farrier has always suffered from terrifying nightmares. On a trip to Germany she recognises scenes from her dreams and finds evidence of a sixty year-old massacre. Fearing for her sanity, her family sends Cassie to a retreat where she meets others with symptoms like her own and finds out that she has lived a number of past lives.
However, the Doctor at the retreat is not what she seems. Cassie and the boy she comes to love must escape the Doctor’s influence but can they also escape the misery of their shared past?

My Thoughts
As soon as I started reading Angel's Fury I knew that it was a book I would really like. It's a different sort of book and I think that was the main thing that held my interest. It was a combination of genres, a bit of love, thriller, historical and so I really enjoyed reading it!

Cassie, a teenage girl, constantly has these terrible nightmares. As time goes on they get even worse and terrible so she really is desperate for a way for them to stop. But then, one day on a school trip to Germany she realises so many things. Her dreams somehow awaken inside and she discovers that they are in fact scenes from her past lives.

Cassie's emotions go down really deep. As much as the dreams are fascinating she is really frightened and scared. That is when a specialist doctor comes into the picture, called 'The Doctor'. There is no doubt that I despise 'The Doctor', she is just intolerable. Then,  Cassie has to move into this manor in the hope of getting rid of these dreams.

At the manor, she meets Seth and she starts to feel a sort of attraction towards him. Romance isn't a dominant theme in the book but I look forward to reading the moments between them and seeing how their relationship progresses.

I love the ideas behind this book. A great debut from a great British author. It is without doubt an original, and brilliant read. I would definitely recommend this!


  1. History, love, and thriller - what an awesome combination. Sounds like a very unique read, and I like that the romance doesn't dominate as I feel sometimes when a love interest is introduced the story starts to solely focus on the romance. :(

    Anyway, I shall definitely be adding this book to my tr pile. Thanks for the lovely review! :)

  2. This rally does sound brilliant - I love the idea! I will definitely be reading it!

  3. Absolutely loved that book! Brilliant debut!

  4. I've been wanting to read this one for ages! Glad you enjoyed it. I like thriller as well so I'm sure I'm gonna like this. Thanks for the review!

  5. This one sounds really good. I hadn't really heard anything about it before. It sounds like quite an adventure.

  6. I havent heard about this book. But i loved your review about it.
    Thanks for sharing

  7. Ooo I love the cover of this book. I have never heard of this one before, but it sounds interesting. I love books that deal a great bit with the character's dreams. Just as a personal fact, I love the study of the unconscious like psychologist Sigmund Freud studied so I like seeing what people concoct with dreams because they always have some hidden meaning, or in this book's case, past lives :)

  8. This is the first time I hear about this book. I like that you mentioned it has a combination of genres. I think the historical aspect along with the other genres can really set this appart from other books.
    Thanks for the review!

  9. This is the first time Ive seen this book or review...Sounds pretty good!
