The book couldn't sound more awesome right?
Ohhh, yeah. The girl is a boss. Briefcase, check. Gadgets, check. And a furious expression on her face, check. Very nice cover. Too bad, it didn't show her freaky blue eyes.
What's the book about?
Jason Bourne meets The Sopranos in this breathtaking adventure
Sara Jane Rispoli is a normal sixteen-year-old coping with school and a budding romance--until her parents and brother are kidnapped and she discovers her family is deeply embedded in the Chicago Outfit (aka the mob).
Now on the run from a masked assassin, rogue cops and her turncoat uncle, Sara Jane is chased and attacked at every turn, fighting back with cold fury as she searches for her family. It's a quest that takes her through concealed doors and forgotten speakeasies--a city hiding in plain sight. Though armed with a .45 and 96K in cash, an old tattered notebook might be her best defense--hidden in its pages the secret to "ultimate power." It's why she's being pursued, why her family was taken, and could be the key to saving all of their lives.
Action packed, with fresh, cinematic writing, Cold Fury is a riveting and imaginative adventure readers will devour.Hmm... The book's a little like Jason Bourne but with superpowers and all that good stuff. Missing family, check. Rogue cops, check. Crazy family, check. Masked assassin, check. Weapons and cash, check. Sara Jane, get ready for the rush of your life.
Sara Jane is this innocent little girl who doesn't realize that she hold the secret of her family. She has the power--Cold Fury.
The plot was excellent. The reactions of other characters when Sara Jane did something was understandable and realistic. There was little to no plot holes. The writing was good, and had a few errors, which I dismissed. I thought there were some randomness, which I hope will be cleared up in the second book.
After reading about the first 5 chapters, I thought this book would be like All these thing I've Done. Then I realized, it was more than that. There was this underlining supernatural thing going on. First it was all mob, and then you have a plot thrown in, seemingly random.
So it was normal family, then kidnapped family. Then after reading the journal or notebook or whatever you want to call it, it turns into supernatural family with recessive genes that control the power. And then there were these door things.
I asked the book questions, and some questions were answered, others were not. I decided that this was one of those "buckle in your seat belts and--no do not raise your hands--enjoy the ride, readers." (Evil laughter is expected)
Cold Fury--as far as I can tell--is this power to "see" other people's fear. It also gives you the power to intimate other people, just by looking. Sara Jane has that power. Her dad has Cold Fury.
Sara Jane is the first female in the family to have Cold Fury. Her brother, Lou, is expected to have it, but doesn't.
She runs from assassins and people who wants her power. She does it all while controlling the mob. (Sixteen year old controlling the mob is not exactly my vision of the mob, but oh well). And plus, she's badass.
Not bad girl way. Badass way like this:
Yep! Like Sarah Conner. Perfect, except the gun isn't like that. But other than that the picture is perfect!
Anyone, this plot was fast while being excellent. (I have no idea how it's like that, but to me it is) Fast and excellent mixed in well.
This book is a three out of five.
