My rating: ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ (five stars)
Three years have passed since Roxanne left. She’s obeyed and fulfilled Remo’s every wish.
His latest command, however, will send her back to Earth. Aware her presence Earth-side is furthering Remo’s plans, Roxanne delves into an impossible chase against time, the preternatural community, and herself.
But she might already be too late, and Roxanne experiences firsthand that when desperate people are pressed against a rock, they’re willing to commit just about anything.

Something cold closed around my wrists and jerked my arms high above my head. Before I registered the pain, a wet, gooey substance smelling of earth and hay covered my lips.
My eyes flew open, and I cursed my stupidity for being so trusting. A Seelie stood above me – the one with the pointy ears and canine teeth.
Fool, stupid. The lack of a door meant I couldn’t go out, not that people couldn’t waltz in. And being under the hospitality code didn’t mean I was safe, only that whoever broke it would deal with Titania’s wrath.
This book introduces you to Roxanne Fosch’s new task for Remo – back on Earth. New even more dangerous challenges arise and the question of ‘who is friend or foe’ is not answered easily – yet vital.
With “Heir of Fury”, Jina S. Bazzar presents us with the third instalment of “The Roxanne Fosch Files” series. This is the third – and unfortunately, the last book in the series, with a complex protagonist on a quest for answers, tasks from Remo as well as from the Hunters, while having to face unexpected challenges and enemies. The story is cleverly elaborated, comprises interesting turns, and has a great flow. Jina S. Bazzar introduces each character with care, providing them with sufficient depth for their respective relevance. I was drawn into the story right away – as Roxanne’s invisible friend. I could easily envision the characters and locations – with amazing colour intensity. I had a great time reading “Heir of Fury”. I have to admit that there were tears when I reached the end of the book, experiencing a sadness similar to losing a friend. I fully comprehend the author’s statement at the beginning of the acknowledgements: “I never thought saying goodbye to fictional characters would be as hard as saying goodbye to a loved one. But it is, and by the time I finished typing “The End”, I was both sad and excited.”
This is for you if you like urban fantasy, likeable characters, surprises, and excellent storytelling.

About the author
Jina was born and raised in Brazil, where she had a joyful and fulfilling childhood. Soon after she graduated from high school, she was diagnosed with a chronic disease that caused gradual vision loss. She became blind at the age of twenty-three. She has since lived in the United States and Brazil, though currently resides in the Middle East.
Like most authors, Jina had always been an avid reader, a fan of the fantastic, but was denied the joy of books when she became blind. Once she discovered screen readers, she picked up the habit of reading again, but discovered that reading was no longer enough, so she started writing her own book.
When she’s not writing in the Roxanne Fosch series or her blog, she’s writing articles for Conscious talk Magazine, where she works as a columnist.

Dear Jina, this was an awesome finale for your series. I am going to miss Roxanne, Zantry, and Frizz a great deal.
