1986: Rebecca Essig leaves a slumber party early but comes home to a massacre—committed by her own parents. Only one of her siblings has survived. But as the tragic event unfolds, she begins to realize that other than a small army of six-year-olds, she is among very few survivors of a nationwide slaughter.

The Reaping has begun.

Present day: Pregnant and on the run with a small band of compatriots, Delilah Marlow is determined to bring her baby into the world safely and secretly. But she isn’t used to sitting back while others suffer, and she’s desperate to reunite Zyanya, the cheetah shifter, with her brother and children. To find a way for Lenore the siren to see her husband. To find Rommily’s missing Oracle sisters. To unify this adopted family of fellow cryptids she came to love and rely on in captivity.

But Delilah is about to discover that her role in the human versus cryptid war is destined to be much larger—and more dangerous—than she ever could have imagined.

Fury was a heartbreaking, but perfect way to end the Menagerie series. Although this world was pretty intense, I loved being back with the characters that I have come to love. During Fury, the characters weren't held captive, but they were isolated non-the-less; flying under the radar and trying to figure out a way to make their predicament better.

I enjoyed how this instalment was delivered, between the past and the present, so we could better understand the reaping and realise how it connected to the current situation. As the story unfolded, I clicked about a few things and I was excited to see how it all came together.

I loved seeing Delilah and Gallagher together as they prepared for the arrival of their baby. They spent a lot of time together and I could see that their bond was becoming deeper. Gallagher was still fiercely protective of Delilah and would protect her from anything, even herself. It was good to see them fighting for their fellow cryptids, freeing those that had been captured, but not without casualties.

This really was a thrilling ending to the series, as I watched all the characters struggle. They wanted a safe world to be in, and danger was coming to them. There were a lot of events that put more focus on the cryptids, and as the gang put the pieces together they figured out what needed to be done. I was so emotionally invested in this story that I shed a few tears, and my heart broke a few times. It was a powerful and satisfying end to the series, and the epilogue gave me hope! I applaud you, Rachel Vincent, for another spectacular series!

This tease here made me smile, as Gallagher tried hard to hide his feelings, while Delilah demanded more!

“This isn’t about what I want,” he growled, and the gravelly depth of his voice seemed to echo with equal parts pain and anger. Frustration.
“Well, then, what about what I want?”
He considered that for a moment. “What do you want?”
“I want you to tell me the truth.”
“I’ve never lied to you.”
“Semantics. I want the whole truth. Am I nothing more to you than an obligation? A debt you owe the world? Am I just some way for you to pay the universe back for the air you breathe and the blood you soak up? Am I—?”
“You are everything.”
