Additional Information

Despite her troublesome attraction to magick, Flora has more or less spent her life doing what’s been expected of her. Now, at sixteen, she knows that this path has been strewn with secrets. Sure that her true mother, Tiny Doom—long believed to be dead—is alive, Flora becomes determined to find her and leave behind the lies she’s been told about who she is. Flora’s quest takes her on a journey from lawless islands to the deadly desert, and into an unexpected romance with a brooding stranger who reveals himself to be a kindred spirit. And it all becomes far more dangerous when Flora realizes how desperately their enemies want Tiny Doom—and Flora herself—dead.

Good resolution to YA love triangle or BEST resolution to YA love triangle? BEST.

Well, it's not really a resolution. Flora obviously still has work to do at the end of the book, but her dilemma between PrettyBoy and FurryBoy is handled as both in-character and a brilliant sendup of the problem in other books. But listen to how she describes it.

"Udo and Sieur Wraathmyr glared at each other. Neither one looked at me. In all the cheap romance novels, the heroine is always thrilled when her rivals fight. In real life, it was just horribly embarrassing. I was not the last piece of bacon."

Flora/Nyana is trying to track down her mother, and along the way, she meets dangerous denizens, attractive delivery men, and gorgeous pirates. She's baked in the sun, assaulted by were-panthers, and has heartfelt hissyfits about how no one tells her ANYTHING. At no point does she overcome her motion-sickness.

The thing I like best about Flora is that even... Read more
I have never actually entered a review for anything, but I love this book, this series, so much that I'm compelled to do so. The FLORA series is a marvel of invention. If you've not read it, there's a little BUY button over there you should be using. It's filled with magic, plot twists that would shame the wiliest, twistiest serpent, and a main character who never quits. And what I think readers should know is that this kind of wildly inventive and sublime fantasy is disappearing. If you want to see MORE of this type of thing, then by all means buy the books, shout about them to the heavens, and encourage authors to give you more of what you want! I for one want many, many, many more FLORA books.
I will start off by urging everyone who loves YA fantasy to read this highly inventive series with a strong vivid central character. Start with the first book. Some points:

1. A couple of reviewers complained Flora's Fury was hard to understand if read alone. Well, yeah. It's the third book in a series. Which brings me to:
2. This is marketed as the end of a trilogy but it's not. It wraps up the plot points within this book, mostly (except the love triangle) but sets up for the next conflict. Most importantly, the overarching conflict - Califa's independence, Flora's full realization of her own magical abilities are not resolved (several characters say she has tons of magic swirling around in her blood, and she speaks powerful Grammaticka without knowing why).
3. Several other reviewers say rather condescendingly that this is good for a 12 or 13 year old girl--I disagree completely. While this is certainly good for that age, it is also great for older readers... Read more
