#BookReview: Furyborn (The Empirium Trilogy, #1) by @clairelegrand @SourcebooksFire

Reviewed By: Jessica P. 
Publisher: SourceBooks Fire
Recommended Age: Young Adult 
Genre: High Fantasy 
About the Book:

Follows two fiercely independent young women, centuries apart, who hold the power to save their world...or doom it.

When assassins ambush her best friend, the crown prince, Rielle Dardenne risks everything to save him, exposing her ability to perform all seven kinds of elemental magic. The only people who should possess this extraordinary power are a pair of prophesied queens: a queen of light and salvation and a queen of blood and destruction. To prove she is the Sun Queen, Rielle must endure seven trials to test her magic. If she fails, she will be executed...unless the trials kill her first.

A thousand years later, the legend of Queen Rielle is a mere fairy tale to bounty hunter Eliana Ferracora. When the Undying Empire conquered her kingdom, she embraced violence to keep her family alive. Now, she believes herself untouchable--until her mother vanishes without a trace, along with countless other women in their city. To find her, Eliana joins a rebel captain on a dangerous mission and discovers that the evil at the heart of the empire is more terrible than she ever imagined.

As Rielle and Eliana fight in a cosmic war that spans millennia, their stories intersect, and the shocking connections between them ultimately determine the fate of their world--and of each other.

Noteworthy experiences while reading this book:  This was one epic read!
Do I Recommend this book? YES

Notes and Opinions: OMG guys this book was fantastic! I have to say that when you read the beginning of this one make sure you don't get attached!  Becuase the story that this one starts out with is NOT the story we get. This story centers around the past of how the evil queen got to where she was at the start of this title. As well as the future set just over 1,000 years. I thought I was going to DNF this one but I have to tell you that I was so sucked in I didn't even use my app I have to time myself (I totally should have thought). I just kept reading it was so amazing.

The characters are all real and even though it took me a while to get a good grasp of the story and who everyone was I was fully invested in the tale.  This is one of those epic stories that you finish it and want to start it all over again. It was just that good. If you love epic fantasy you should totally check this one out!!
