Furyborn by Claire Legrand is the story of two queens. A Sun Queen and a Blood Queen. One of these Queens will save the world, the other will bring it to its end. The prophecy has no idea when these queens will come, just that they will, and they need to figure out which queen is which so that the queen who will end the world can be killed before the prophecy comes to light.

Each queen that is born will have the power to control all of the elements. When it comes to light that Reille, a friend of the crowned prince, possesses more than one element, she is put to the test to see if she is, in fact, on of the queens. This test will also prove which queen she is. 

The other end of the story is from the point of view of Eliana. She is pretty much an assassin. She takes jokes for money and so that her family is protected. She thinks she is untouchable until the person that is kidnapping women in her city takes her mother. She is hired to find this other assassin but things go wrong and she ends up teaming up with him instead, to find her mother and figure out who is kidnapping all these women and why.

this story is so fun and full of action and lore. It is a little bit much at first but once you wrap your head around everything you will love the book. There are so many aspects to this story and the plot line is so incredible. 

There is something this book had that I really wasn’t expecting and that is time-travel. I am not a big fan of time-travel at all but the author did it very well for this story and it fits in very well with the plot so I didn’t have a hard time with it.

In the end, I greatly enjoyed this entire story. I was a little confused at the beginning with all the back and forth between the storylines. Both main female characters seemed like the same person to me, but there is a really good reason for that and it is definitely explained. I cannot want for the next book in the series to see where it takes these characters.

Overall, I gave the book 4.5/5 stars.
