In a world where women have no rights, sisters Serina and Nomi Tessaro face two very different fates: one in the palace, the other in prison.Serina has been groomed her whole life to become a Grace - someone to stand by the heir to the throne as a shining, subjugated example of the perfect woman. But when her headstrong and rebellious younger sister, Nomi, catches the heir's eye, it's Serina who takes the fall for the dangerous secret that Nomi has been hiding.Now trapped in a life she never wanted, Nomi has only one way to save Serina: surrender to her role as a Grace until she can use her position to release her sister. This is easier said than done. A traitor walks the halls of the palace, and deception lurks in every corner. But Serina is running out of time, imprisoned on an island where she must fight to the death to survive and one wrong move could cost her everything....

Grace and Fury Reviews
I'm just picking the real cover because I got two different covers from Fairyloot and Owlcrate and they are in the trade in box! And yes, the same book in the same month! Sigh! I might add the box pics later!
I told myself that after cancer treatment I wasn't going to waste time on books I'm not liking! I'm gonna start DNF'ing cuz time is short.
I'm happy for my friends that loved this and I'm glad I'm not the only one of my friends that didn't like it!!!
I reckon that's all folks. I just can't ...more
In Viridia, women were oppressed because men were afraid of them.
In my honest opinion, Grace and Fury is the love child of a literary threesome (ménage à trois, if you want to sound fancy): The Handmaid's Tale, The Selection, and Red Queen. It seemed like the author selected tropes from each book and then tried to make them interesting—if not less disappointing—by integrating them into a story of sisterhood.
Serina is a demure and obedient girl who aims to be Viridia's princess by winning the hea ...more
ARC provided by Little, Brown in exchange for an honest review.
“Serina and Nomi were like any other daughters in the cold, industrial town of Lanos. But Serina had her beauty. And Nomi had her secret.”
I didn’t know much about this book going in. I didn’t even read the synopsis. I only requested from NetGalley because a few of my best friends wanted to buddy read it with me. But I went into this story expecting nothing. And as I began reading, I was enjoying, but I wasn’t expecting anything g ...more
What a way to complete my reading challenge for 2018!
I am in love. I need the second book now.
I'm not going to lie, I kind of predicted a lot of it, but it had so many elements of what I love in books, and there was so much GIRL POWER!
10s 10s 10s across the board!
Update... I hate myself that I never reviewed this 😩
Available to first 500 readers on Netgalley as of 5/8/18!
So glad I got a copy, can't wait to read it! I love fantasy with a strong feminist narrative.
I’m not going to rate this. I got to page 129 but I just can’t finish this book. I am so frustrated with the characters, the plot, and the pacing. The world building is seriously lacking, the characters are so under developed, and the plot is a very clear mashup of books/stories I’ve already read without a unique twist to make it stand out. I’m sorry, I know this may end up being super feminist but as it stands, I have no desire to read a story about a world where women have absolutely no rig ...more
"For every woman who has been told to sit down and be quiet... And who stood up anyway."
It felt highly fitting to use the author's initial dedication to highlight the overall theme of Grace and Fury rather than a quote from the ARC, because GIRL POWER DUH. Seriously, this is feminist, Italian-inspired fantasy full of court intrigue, the bonds of family (both blood and chosen), and fighting for what is right and good in this world. We've encountered SO many YA fantasies featured in made up worlds ...more
I did not think I would finish this book—it recycles so much from previously written fantasy books that I was certain it would bore me to death.
But, to my surprise, it ended up not being too mediocre.
That’s mostly because of the character and story developments. Nomi and Serina are two sisters who were supposed to be together—Serina as a Grace and Nomi as her handmaiden—but Nomi was chosen by the crown prince as one of his girls instead of Serina, who was sent to die, basically.
When the sister ...more
