I had great hopes of The Furies by Katie Lowe as it appeared to have all the ingredients of a page-turner that I have enjoyed before; mystery, murder, magic and so on.
Unfortunately, for myself, the expectations were not realised.
The author actually writes beautifully; her descriptions and choice of words are a joy to read; it was the progression which let it down for me. The story didn’t seem to be going anywhere, or have any real momentum, and in the end it just seemed tedious. When I put it down, it could be days before I picked it up again.
I’m sorry, but this book, in the end, just wasn’t for me.
