Overview

"From the creator of the Escape from Furnace series, a ferocious epic of supernatural terror, perfect for Stephen King fans"

Imagine if one day, without warning, the entire human race turns against you, if every person you know, every person you meet becomes a bloodthirsty, mindless savage . . . That's the horrifying reality for Cal, Brick, and Daisy. Friends, family, even moms and dads, are out to get them. Their world has the Fury. It will not rest until they are dead.

In Alexander Gordon Smith's adrenaline-fueled saga, Cal and the others must uncover the truth about what is happening before it destroys them all. But survival comes at a cost. In their search for answers, what they discover will launch them into battle with an enemy of unimaginable power.

Smith follows his Escape From Furnace series with this epic struggle of good versus evil—a massive tome reminiscent of Stephen King’s sprawling classics—in which a group of teens are hunted and hated by the world they must save. British teenagers Cal, Brick, Daisy, and Rilke are horrified when, out of nowhere, everyone who sees them begins to fly into feral rages, intent on killing them. Forced to band together for their own safety while they figure out what’s happening to them, they fight for their lives, deal with internal strife, and engage in an all-out battle against a force of nature set on devouring all of creation. Smith paints a graphic, visceral picture of alienation, confusion, and destruction with this emotionally layered adventure. The slow-burning narrative, lengthy buildup, lack of concrete explanations, and weirdly metaphysical moments may throw off some readers, but Smith is an expert at balancing tension and hope, keeping the audience on the edge of their seats. While this might have worked better split into several volumes, it’s still an intense, fascinating read. Ages 12–up. Agent: Sophie Hicks, Ed Victor. (July)
