Furyborn (Empirium #1) by Claire Legrand

This is the story of two women in different time periods who have magic powers.  No one really trusts them, they're afraid of what they can do.  But they think it might be the prophecy coming true.  Just which one of the queens is it?

Sourcebooks Fire sent me an ARC of this book to read for review (thank you).  It will be published May 22nd.

The tale is told in alternating chapters; one in present day and one in the past.  I found it a bit confusing because both women are strong characters and they are facing similar challenges.  This is the start of a new trilogy and gives you a good background for the rest of the story.

There are lost loves, death stalking them, and even angels here.  Keep in mind Satan was an angel once, too.  With trials to prove she can control conquer her powers, a hidden plot to create "creatures" that will do an evil ones bidding, and friends that she doesn't want to lose, there's plenty going on throughout the book.

Here's a good taste of what this series is about.  When the book is finished you still have some questions in your head about what has happened.  I like happy endings and I'm not sure I see one coming in this series.
