More About the Author

Bryony Pearce writes books about good vs. evil and redemption. Her (fairly dark) books are embedded in the modern world, but with a supernatural twist. She believes that the more realistic the starting point, the more creepy the supernatural element becomes.
Her first book, Angel's Fury, is about a girl who suffers from terrible nightmares, she discovers that she has been reincarnated and that all of her lives are being manipulated by a fallen angel who is trying to destroy mankind.
Her second book, The Weight of Souls, out on August 8th 2013, is about a teenaged girl who sees ghosts ... but if a ghost touches her she has to avenge its death.
She is currently working on a book about a boy who can jump from one universe to another, based on Homer's Odyssey and multi-universe theory; there are cannibals, killer machines, crazy priests, gods and much more.
Bryony lives in a village on the edge of the Peak District with her husband, two children (a girl and boy) and cat. The cat likes to sit on the laptop while she is working.
Before becoming a writer and a mother she went to Cambridge university, then worked in Market Research.
She visits schools, festivals and events and loves it if people come and say hello ... particularly if they have enjoyed her work.

I finished this book over a week ago now, but I've been unable to fathom how to review it. I mean, I really enjoyed this book; it has big themes, a strong female heroine and its pretty dark for teenage fiction. Yet something niggled at the back of my mind, telling me that nothing I possibly say could get across how much I like Angel's Fury.

All right, so maybe I should start with the protagonist. Cassie Farrier is having nightmares, those terrible nightmares where you wake up terrified, only hers are about one-hundred times worse than anyone else's. (Apart from the dream I had where my father drove me off the side of a multi-storey car park, that was pretty horrendous, and I refused to speak to him for a week afterwards.) Yet she soon begins to realise that what she's seeing in her dream actually happened.

There was something incredibly real about Cassie. The way she spoke, and behaved, you could imagine yourself feeling the same uncertainty, and I have to say that if I were her, I think I'd have fallen down at the first hurdle. The characterisation of Cassie could have gone way over the top, yet it didn't, she did what all teenagers do when they think there's something wrong with them: she hid it. She kept everything bottled up, and I think this is another reason I enjoyed Cassie's character.

The book also has an incredibly fast-pace. If you wanted to, you could finish it within a few hours. This was another of those books where I held my breath and didn't realise I was doing so until I was completely out of breath. It encompasses a thriller, a romance and fantasy fiction, as well as making the reader debate about the possibility of reincarnation.

Angel's Fury whilst being aimed at a teenage audience certainly deserves much wider recognition. This is the debut novel from Bryony Pearce and it's a very confident start. Cassie is a feisty loner who suffers vivid nightmares and through a quirk of fate discovers that not all of her dreams are fiction. From there we are sent on a spiralling journey as Cassie tries to make sense of her dreams , discovers past secrets and finds herself in serious peril. As her life starts to come apart at the seams a mysterious doctor from her past comes to help her. Cassie then learns that her own fate is entwined with the past and a particularly determined villain is hell bent on carrying out his quest and it won't just affect Cassie but all of us. Angel's Fury is well written with well rounded out characters. Our heroine Cassie is very identifiable and the supporting characters are more than just background.. The villain is truly memorable and there are more than a few shocks and chills on the way. I myself am a particularly slow reader but even I couldn't put the last third of the book down. I had to follow it to its conclusion. If I have one criticism it is that the book has been marketed to the "Twilight" crowd which is exclusively aimed at teenage girls, but boys will enjoy this book too and certainly adults. It deserves to stand on its own as it's a very well-crafted story. I heartily recommend it to all age groups.

2.5 STARS

First things first is the plot. And to be honest I wasn’t really impressed. It was imaginative and original with a storyline that sounded so promising but while I can’t say it was farfetched (excluding the angel parts (that’s not a spoiler by the way because just look at the title...)) it didn’t fit together properly, in my opinion and that killed it for me. The brainwashing of young minds was disturbing but I was always trying to connect it to the title and synopsis, until I actually figured out what was going on and what would happen next at which point I had lost a lot of my original interest.

The idea of reincarnation was I think what kept me reading (and the hope something dramatic would happen because of it). The idea of past lives filled with atrocities including murder; catching up to the present is enthralling. Especially the way they can twist the person into half versions of themselves and half the evils of their past so they lead lives that they otherwise wouldn’t have. You were always wondering how much the past had taken over each person so there was a dark atmosphere following the events in this novel.

The characters on the other hand were really great most of the time. They all had a lot of hidden depth including the main protagonist Cassie. She is barely functioning and tired, but not just because of her lack of sleep. The nightmares are taking their toll on her body and spirit and when she uses books as her way of escape you can relate to her in a way I haven’t found I could in the last few book protagonists I’ve read about. Even with this though there could have been better relationships developed, between her and the other characters, and more emotion other than the usual tiredness.

By Sarah (Feeling Fictional) TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 20 Dec. 2011
Format: Paperback
Cassie suffers horrific and vivid nightmares that make her terrified of falling asleep as she knows she will wake up screaming. Suffering with sleep deprivation she is finding it hard to cope but things come to a head on a school trip to Germany when she realises there is more to her nightmares than she ever could have expected. Returning home things are worse than ever and her parents are forced to reveal a secret they've been keeping from her. They have strong evidence that Cassie's dreams are in fact memories from previous lives. Cassie makes the decision to seek out a doctor who specialises in people with past life experiences and for the first time she meets people who have similar issues to her. As her treatment progresses and her symptoms get worse instead of better Cassie starts to wonder if everything at the clinic is really what it seems.

I have to say that Angel's Fury was nothing like what I was expecting but I mean that in a good way. I'm not sure why I thought it was going to be a fairly typical paranormal romance but I'm very pleased to have been proved incorrect and the story is so much more than that. Although there is a little romance that is by far one of the smaller elements of the story. Instead Bryony Pearce gives us a supernatural thriller with touches of historical fiction and a dash of romance.

The story is fast paced, has believable characters and some of the historical back story is heart wrenching to read. There were plenty of twists and turns making it hard to know what to expect and almost impossible to put the book down. I loved the fact that by the end of the story we get answers to all of our questions and don't have a cliffhanger ending leading us into a sequel, it makes such a nice change to read a stand alone story. I'm impressed with Bryony Pearce's debut and am looking forward to seeing what she comes up with next.
