In a world where women have no rights, sisters Serina and Nomi Tessaro face two very different fates: one in the palace, the other in prison.

Serina has been groomed her whole life to become a Grace--someone to stand by the heir to the throne as a shining, subjugated example of the perfect woman. But when her headstrong and rebellious younger sister, Nomi, catches the heir's eye, it's Serina who takes the fall for the dangerous secret that Nomi has been hiding.

Now trapped in a life she never wanted, Nomi has only one way to save Serina: surrender to her role as a Grace until she can use her position to release her sister. This is easier said than done. A traitor walks the halls of the palace, and deception lurks in every corner. But Serina is running out of time, imprisoned on an island where she must fight to the death to survive and one wrong move could cost her everything.

Grace & Fury by Tracy Banghart is the story of two sisters who fights a system filled with female oppression to get back to each other and to make a stand and change the world. 



Grace & Fury by Tracy Banghart is a spectacular debut novel, following two sisters, Serina and Nomi as they essentially swap roles and lives.

Serina was trained from a child to be a Grace, somewhat a "Princess" but there is more than one Grace each year. 

Nomi on the other hand has been trained to be Serina's handmaiden, blend in the background and ensure that her sister is well looked after, so when The Heir makes a bold and rash decision, they find a tumultuous journey as each tries to work around the hand that they were dealt. 

Grace & Fury was so much more than two sisters trying to find their place in the world, it had family love, treachery, rebellion, feminism...it had so much packed into this first novel and I loved it! 

For every woman who has been told to sit down and be quiet...and who has stood up anyway

The beginning of Grace & Fury seemed a bit slow, although I was quickly pulled in once the Heir made a certain decision, and was then very eager to find out what happened to both girls. The start may seem a little slow, but stay put my friends, and I promise you will love the book just as much as I did.

This novel was very character driven and I thoroughly enjoyed how both girls rose to the occasion despite their personal suffering. Family love was a strong topic for this book, I just loved how the siblings (brother included, Renzo) just kept pushing through to ensure the safety of each other, it was wonderful and realistic. Anyone that is close to their siblings can really attest to the lengths you'll go to save each other, and you all know I'm all about family love.

How was it that homesickness could be more painful than a bullet wound?

I cannot talk about the rest of the characters I'd like to talk about without giving spoilers, but the support cast is totally amazing!  

Grace & Fury is a beautiful book that makes you feel the oppression towards females from the very beginning. The journey each female went through is miraculous and beautiful...I'm all about girl power as you can tell, so this story was just right up my alley. I can't wait for the still untitled sequel!
