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. 

MORAL OF THE STORY:
I AM WOMAN, HEAR ME ROAR!
GIRL POWER!

You guys, this book...THIS book...THIS BOOK WAS SO DAMN GOOD! Okay, I'm sorry, I'll try to tone it down a little, but only mildly. I am still fan-girling over how much I liked, loved, adored this book!

I knew just based off of the authors dedication that I was going to love everything about this book:

Image may contain: one or more people and text

If that doesn't sell you enough, just flip over a page or two more and you will be immersed into the dark and addictive tale that Tracy Banghart weaves. Grace and Fury is told from the perspectives of 2 sisters, Nomi and Serina. Nomi is strong and stubborn and struggles to conform to the horrible rules set for woman. Serina has prepared for "grace-hood" her entire life. She longed for the day that she would reside in the palace living as a Grace to the superior, with Nomi by her side as a Handmaiden.

Banghart's writing is bang on(couldn't resist). She crafts a story that flows so effortlessly off of the pages. It's equally heart-wrenching and heart-pounding. Nomi and Serina are both very strong and in-depth characters. Each one has such a bold yet completely different personality. Their bond is strong and all though they are apart for most of the book, there love for each other radiates off of the pages. Malachi and Asa and very intense characters! I loved them both yet for very different reasons. Malachi, the villain, Asa the hero, a sibling rivalry that could draw blood.

Grace and Fury will capture your heart. Its deep characters and intense story line make for a one-of-a-kind reading experience. Cancel all of your plans, find your favourite reading spot and get comfortable because you will devour this book in one sitting.

"I think the woman in this prison--in this country--will rise up eventually. My father used to say that oppression isn't a finite state. It is a weight that is carried until it becomes to heavy, and then it is thrown off. Not without struggle, not without pain, but he believed that the weight would always, always, be fought and overcome."
