Curse of the Furies is the first installment in the Furious Legacy series written by Meadoe Hora. High school teenager Erin feels reluctant to take her rightful place as one of Hades' Furies alongside her aunts, Tis and Meg. Trouble ensues when on her first assignment, she unexpectedly finds herself spying on her twin brother Cass, from whom she learns that their father, Jason, has been put in a mental hospital. After visiting him, Erin discerns that he has been cursed. As the twins search for ways to heal their father, events escalate further when Cass finds himself kidnapped by their grandfather Apollo, who seeks the powerful crown of Helios. Meanwhile, Erin discovers that Orestes has taken her Aunt Tis captive in his quest to find the map that leads to Helios' crown.

Fans of Greek mythology are in for a treat for the Furious Legacy series blends myth and urban fantasy to create an entertaining ride that you don't want to stop. Author Meadoe Hora spawns a wondrously imaginative young adult fantasy series with Curse of the Furies. The plot moves at a fast pace with plenty of twists and turns to keep you glued to the pages. The characters are likable with well-developed personalities. I found the dynamic between Erin and her aunts particularly entertaining. I also enjoyed the conversations between Erin and Cass regarding their family history. Overall, I had a blast reading Curse of the Furies. Anyone who enjoys young adult fantasy novels should find it highly entertaining.
