Fury by Will O’Shire

A hunter, a fae bar and a killer unicorn. It’s got all the ingredients for a fantastically good time.

Hunter has been tasked by the fae council to stop any fairy folk who threaten to blow the lid on their existence to the human world, but that doesn’t stop him from taking on side jobs that pay big and line his nest egg for retirement.

When a unicorn starts boring holes in people’s chests, Hunter is sent to investigate, and finds an unlikely pair of humans he has to protect along the way. With several interested parties, and unusual protection medallions in the mix, can he find out what’s going on and stop the unicorn before it’s too late?

I love these kind of stories, and one look at that gorgeous cover hooked me in to read the tale. Unfortunately, I felt I was several steps behind with the characters and setting, which wasn’t helped by the very minimalist writing.

I understand that these characters may have been introduced in another story, but some description about who and what the major players were would have gone a long way towards immersing me in the story.

Mostly dialogue, the scenes rotated from the fae bar to an exterior location and back to the bar. If more detail had been put into the scenes, this mightn’t have bothered me, but I found it got very repetitive.

The mystery was interesting but I longed for more scene setting and character development to engage my interest and maintain some sort of emotional response to what was going on.
