Dagan, a Sumerian God and Time Walker, is responsible for protecting humans from Kur and all the evil monsters from the underworld. As a Time Walker, Dagan can travel to any period in time. As he lands in the 21st century, he finds a contingent of Kur's minions stalking the lovely Reece Whittaker.
Reece Whittaker is an archeologist planning her next expedition when she becomes the target of the evil Kur, King of the Underworld. Kur wants to suck the life force from Reece to make himself more powerful. Reece is thrown into a fantasy world, where it seems all of the people and places she has studied are true. Her first thoughts tell her this can't possibly be but her savior the gorgeous Dagan is definitely real. As the attacks increase, she is forced to face the truth and rely on Dagan to help her survive.
It is forbidden for a Time Walker to bond with a human but that is all Dagan can think about since meeting Reece, his life mate. The Fury, his need to bond sexually, has a hold of him and the only way to assuage it is to bond with Reece, but if he does the consequences will be steep for them both. Amidst the sexual need gripping Dagan he must protect Reece from Kur and it's becoming increasingly difficult. Will Dagan be able to fight the fury long enough to dispose of Kur? Can Reece accept Dagan and all that comes along with him? Will the powers that be let them live when all is said and done?
The Fury is a dark, suspenseful romance. The world created by Sloan McBride is very interesting. I am very intrigued by the Time Walkers and their history. There is a bit of pantheon mythology thrown in with the 21st Century. Sometimes I find books that include both a mythological society and a present day society usually lean towards one or the other without really meshing well together. I think Ms. McBride did an excellent job of combing both. I believe that having Reece be an archeologist made it easier for her to accept that all this crazy stuff happening to her was true, therefore making it easier for the reader to accept as well. The Fury which is actually the sexual need for binding with ones mate is definitely intense. It has gripped Dagan making it difficult for him to concentrate on protecting Reece when all he can think of is bedding her. Dagan and Reece's chemistry is off the charts! Their sexual need for each other heats the pages and the banter between the two is explosive. If you like your heroine's fierce and your hero's fervently ferocious you will enjoy The Fury.
