    I think this is one of the first times that I haven't known right off what rating I want to give. I'm feeling a little bit....wait for itFURIOUS!!Oh my, how cliche. Can a person feel "a little bit" furious? So this is book #1 in the Faith McMann Series. I will say that this time on NG it did say that it was going to be part of a series. This is the first T.R. Ragan book that I've read. I guess she's known for cliff-hangers and this book had one h...

    I received a copy of Furious by T.R. Ragan through NetGalley for an honest review. I wish to thank NetGalley and T.R. Ragan for the opportunity.Oh, Momma! This was an in-your-face, kicking in high gear, shake the jelly out of you, book. All is not well in the seemingly quiet suburbs of Sacramento. The McMann family have become victims to a heinous and unspeakable crime. The two children, Lara and Hudson, have been kidnapped. Their father, Craig, ...

    T.R. Ragan brings to us her brand new series featuring the gutsy and likeable character of Faith McCann. Whether you have read and enjoyed Ragan's Lizzy Gardner series or not, this book comes recommended with a big tick for a fast-paced, interesting and engaging read with one bit fat cliffhanger to keep you wanting for more. Faith McMann comes home to a nightmare: her husband is killed and her son and daughter are taken. Although the intruders le...

    As a huge fan of this author's Lizzy Gardner series, I couldn't wait to read the first of her new series featuring Faith McCann. I figured if it was even half as good as the others, it would still be a good read. I was not disappointed ... this is a series I can sink my teeth into.Faith is happily married to a great guy, and they have two young children. She has a great life .. until it all comes crashing down around her.There comes the day she w...

  • Petra
    Furious is the first book in a new series by the creator of the Lizzy Gardner series. If like me, you loved that series you will devour Furious. It's action-packed and full of characters who will evoke emotions, some you'll love, some you'll hate, some might bring tears to your eyes. All the characters are absolutely terrific. I loved Beast and Rage with their harrowing backstories as well as Furious'/Faith's close-knit family.The story focuses o...
  • Monnie
    This certainly isn't the most pleasant book I've ever read, and I caution that those who are disturbed by the subject of sex trafficking of children may want to steer clear of it. I'll also point out that as the description points out, this is the first in a trilogy; and for better or worse, it ends with a mother of all cliffhangers. If you want to find out how the story continues, you'll have to read the next one (which, for the record, is title...

    I love a good crime thriller, especially one that leans a bit to the dark side. Furious is all that and more. I know that you never get between a mother and her kids, Momma Bear comes to life.To say that Faith McMann had a bad day is a massive understatement. Ragan starts this story off with a bang, and keeps the good times rolling. I was pulled into Faith McMann’s life and needed her to have her vengeance.Ragan tackles some pretty heavy issues...

    4.5 StarsWOW was this book good. "Faith McMann comes home to a nightmare: her husband is killed and her son and daughter are taken. Although the intruders leave her for dead, she survives." The first in a new series (Faith McMann Series) this book was a heartbreaker, disturbing, and kick ass. I loved Faith and her family. The way they all stood with her and helped. I ADORED Beast and Rage. Everything about this book was just awesome from beginni...
  • Debbie
    Wow, this was one kick butte book. This mother was not letting anyone keep her away from her children. I loved it and her. The police thought she was crazy, I thought "you go girl". This was one action packed book with one huge let down. It's a cliffhanger. Ugh!!! That's okay. I enjoyed reading this one so much, I will be glad to wait and see what happens in the next one. Because even though I'm not crazy about cliffhangers, this mom is so crazy,...
  • Judy Collins
    A special thank you to Thomas & Mercer and NetGalley for an ARC in exchange for an honest review. T.R. Ragan returns with her new series following her Lizzy Gardner series, with a kick ass heroine, leaving readers glued to the pages, with some highly charged topics for a suspense crime thriller. FURIOUS by T.R. Ragan dedicates her new Faith McMann series to the heroes and people who work tirelessly to raise awareness and increase understanding...
  • Kylie H
    This book is centred on the very sickening topic of human trafficking, especially that of children. Faith McCann's life quickly comes unstuck when intruders take her husband and children from her. Through a series of events she becomes involved in a whole dark side of society. The very frightening thing about this book is that this really does happen.
  • Barry
    Just finished Furious and I must say that I have rarely had such a strong visceral reaction to a book. Ragan does a superb job of creating the impact and emotion that the mom, as well as those around her, experience when her husband is killed and her nine and ten year old children are snatched by three unknown men (these facts are not spoilers - I don't do spoilers).Ragan further does a wonderful job of showing the broad impact of such an event b...
  • Tricia
    The writing here is well done and this story starts out with a bang!When I first started reading this book, I wasn't sure that I would like the main protag, Faith and therefore really not liking the story.A few chapters in and that all changed and I was then easily engaged with the plot and cared very much about what the characters were going through and what their outcome would be. Towards the middle of the book is where everything picked up and...

    A schoolteacher comes home to see her husband murdered and her two children abducted. She is seriously injured herself but after superficially recovering begins her odyssey to find and recover her children. She discounts the police because they appear, to her, to be ineffectual and begins to search on her own. She links up with two people she meets in Anger Management Class and begins to look into the trafficking of children. I won't go any furth...

But there is no definitive reason as to why they took her children. She and her husband had no enemies, no criminal activity; so, what happened and where are her children? Left with an ugly scar across her neck and scattered memories of that night, Faith is frustrated that th...
  • Trish R.
    FYI, the first 2 books are cliffhangers.OK, so my daughter has been bugging me for almost a year to read this trilogy but I kept putting it off until now. It was a very good story but I have a hard time with stories on human trafficking to begin with but it’s even harder when it’s children. This first book was about Faith, whose husband was killed right in front of her and her throat was cut too but she survived and her two children were take...
  • Liz
    I received this from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. To start, I didn't buy into the initial premise of this book. If the bad guys were looking for something, would they have taken the time and trouble to kidnap the children? But overlooking that, I enjoyed the book. It's got a fast moving plot. It's not always a comfortable book to read, given the basis is the sex trafficking of children. Ragan does a good job of weaving the facts of...
  • Pat
    Oh my, that was very grippingIt all starts when the McMann family home is invaded by vicious thugs looking for something. When they don't get what they want they kill the husband (Craig) in front of his wife (Faith), abduct the two children, Lara and Hudson, and leave Faith for dead. But Faith is not dead. After recovering from her injuries and unhappy with police and FBI efforts to find her children she joins a victim support group where she mee...
  • Valerie
    When I read the synopsis of the book it really sounded interesting. I love to read and I love mystery and suspense books. But there are some topics I don’t want to read about. Human trafficking is one of them. Once I found out the story had this component it was an immediate turn-off. I did continue to read the book because I wanted to meet my reading goal for the year. The dialog in the story is rather lame. I read this book as a combination a...

  • Tracy T.
    Great Story and narration by Kate Rudd (audible review) This was a great story. It is a cliffhanger, but the next books are already out so it's okay, I don't have to wait. YAY.I love this story line and plot. It started out very intense and just kept going. Human trafficking, murder, mystery, bad guys, good guys. And Faith looking for her children. I don't want to give any spoilers away. So I won't say too much, just know its a great book.I am en...
  • Julia Bragg
    I really enjoyed the first 50% of this book. Murder, child abduction, human trafficking - all ingredients for an awesome thriller. But it started to drag on.. the worst part? It didn't have an ending. I don't need a happily ever after but I do need and ending. Without the ending the book could have easily been a novella, but instead I guess the author left room if she wanted to write a sequel.. For a book that started so strongly it wasn't execut...
  • Lady Delacour
    Cleverly written, action packed,mystery adventure, with intelligent, likable characters.Author and narrator make a great team for this trilogy.
  • Deloris
    This is a good story it's three parts , this was is good on to the next , I'm not mad because all three are available. I'm rooting for Faith so on to book 2
  • Christy McCurry
    This has been a great series.
  • Mike Nemeth
    "Furious," the start of T.R. Ragan's Faith McMann trilogy, doesn't take a third of the book to get interesting. Ragan doesn't dawdle establishing characters, color and scene. She gets right into it. Like a punch to the face. Ragan apparently writes about serial killers in her other books. This one is told from the perspective of a victim, a woman, a mother who has lost everything. Violently. Faith McMann starts the story talking to her sister abo...
  • Samantha Curtis
    OMG this book was amazing. Have you ever felt when you start 1 page of a book that is it you are just gripped to the story? Well this is that book! This book reminds me of that program *i solved a murder* Its a program where the a case goes cold and police have nothing to go on for further investigation so a relative or friend of the victim solves the casefaith mccann and her children travel home and she drops her kids of and realises she needs t...
