Review: Fury (Episode 1)

Title: Fury: Episode 1 (The Cure) 
Author: Charlotte McConaghy 
Synopsis: Eighteen-year-old Josephine Luquet wakes up naked and covered in blood on the same day every year—when the blood moon is full. Josi has not responded to the "Cure"—an immunization against anger mandated by the government—and believes herself to be a threat to others. Then she meets Luke. Luke has had the Cure but seems different than the other "drones"—and he's dead set on helping Josi discover the truth about herself before the next blood moon. But time is running out. Is Luke willing to risk his life to be near her? Does he truly understand what violence she is capable of? Raw and full of passion, Fury is a story of love in a dystopian world, and how much we are willing to forgive in the struggle to remember our humanity.

My Review:

When I saw that Charlotte McConaghy had a new book avaliable for request in NetGalley I knew I needed it. I love McConaghy´s writing from her previous books.
Fury is a dystopian story divided in 3 short episodes which together form The Cure. The synopsis says it has some reminiscences of Divergent but it reminded me more of Delirium by Lauren Oliver, though the feelings they eliminate are opposites.

Usually I´m not a fan of flashbacks but in Fury they are absolutely necessary to understand the story and I ended up loving them because Luke is a basic part of them.  I have to say that I am kind of lost because of the whole mystery surrounding the main characters.

I definitely want to keep reading this new series =)
