    One thought on “Ferocious”

    1. Well THAT was a wild ride, although I'm a smudge disappointed the stakes were way lower than in the first book. I mean the first book was "SOLVE SISTER'S MURDER" (it's in the blurb so not a spoiler don't panic smol child) but this book was like "STEAL BACK TECHNOLOGY" and I just??? I'm very much less invested in technology than I am in sisters. I think this means I have a soul and that worries me too, wow and ouch. But I do like the plot twists! And the romance was A+. It's like the opposite of [...]

See this review and more like it on bookbastion!__________Related Review:Vicarious: ★★★★After the jaw dropping events of Vicarious, I was totally unsure how the events of this book could possibly play out. In the interest of avoiding spoilers, I'll just say that there were some plot-twists in the first book that I didn't see coming and Paula Stokes used them to her benefit here to keep the story fresh and moving in directions I didn't exactly expect them to go. Another thing I enjoy abou [...]

    4. Oh man, this is was amazing. I didn't reread Vicarious before I started this and I probably should have, but I was pretty excited to get to it. Winter is a straight up BAMF. She's stronger than she thinks and it so satisfying to see her come to that realization. Jesse and Baz are delightful in their own ways and the three of them work quite well together as they are complimentary as a trio. Plot wise, it goes back and forth between build up and madness and it's fast paced right from the beginnin [...]

    5. 3.5/5Winter Kim and her friends race back in this sequel and finale to the Vicarious duology, this time armed with a thirst for revenge for the deaths of her loved ones and the desire to find and protect her brother, on the streets of South Korea. Winter’s dissociative identity disorder (DID) plays a much more significant role in Ferocious, and is an interesting look into the mental health illness. Though I can’t speak to how authentic the representation of DID is in the book, it certainly f [...]

    6. You know how to avoid the underwhelming 2nd book in a trilogy…make it a duology and the problem is solved. At least with this duo it is.Book Title: FerociousAuthor: Paula StokesSeries: Vicarious #2 (duology)Genre: Older YA, Science Fiction, ThrillerPublisher: Macmillan-Tor/ForgeSetting: LA and Seoul, South KoreaSource: I received an ARC via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review✧✧✧OVERALL RATING✧5/5 STARS✧A+✧✧✧⇝My Thoughts⇜⇝First off I want to thank Paula Stokes for m [...]

    7. *Source* NetGalley*Genre* Young Adult, Thriller, Mystery*Rating* 4.0*My Thoughts*Ferocious, by author Paula Stokes, is the second and final installment in the author's Vicarious duology. As we learned from the previous installment, Winter Kim's sister (Rose) is dead, the man who she thought of as a father figure (Gideon) is also dead. Jesse Ramirez and Sebastian Baz Faber are in the hospital, and it appears as though Winter may have a brother who she never knew. A brother who was born after W [...]

    8. I liked this even more than the first book - thought it wrapped up well and loved the Seoul setting.Full review to come.

    9. Check out this and other reviews on my young adult book blog, Here's to Happy Endings!Paula Stokes is probably one of my favorite authors, and while I'm used to reading her contemporaries (such as Girl Against the Universe), I'm also loving her Vicarious series a lot. These books are so full of action, revenge, and a whole bunch of awesomeness. I'm surprised I haven't seen too much hype for Ferocious, as Vicarious was more than amazing - it completely blew me out of the water when I read it.Fero [...]

    10. 4.5 Stars'Ferocious' lives up to its name and then some. It's a fantastic science fiction novel full of action and thrills, and it's sure to have readers devouring the pages. I've read several of the author's other books, so I'm familiar with her amazing talent and storytelling abilities. This definitely was no exception. The writing was awesome - she brought Winter's world to life in front of my eyes with vivid imagery and detailed descriptions. I easily slipped inside Winter's mind and world r [...]

    11. I already know this is going to be as thrilling and kick-butt at Vicarious. I'm kinda psychic. I have a fifth sense. It's like I have ESPN or something.

    12. I received this ARC from the publisher, via Netgalley, in exchange for an honest and voluntary review. I was in no way compensated for this reviewEASE NOTE THAT THERE WILL BE SPOILERS FROM VICARIOUS WITHIN THIS REVIEW. READ WITH CAUTION!Paula Stokes amps up the intrigue and adventure with Ferocious, the follow-up and conclusion to Vicarious! We pretty much pick up where we left off and see that Winter is making her plans for revenge against Kyung who essentially ruined her life and killed all th [...]

    13. If you love kick-ass heroines with killer voices you’re going to want to get acquainted with Winter Kim as she seeks revenge on the man who stole her childhood. Vicarious was one of my top 10 reads of 2016, and Ferocious was everything I hoped for in a sequel. It is solidly paced with loads of action, the budding romance between Winter and Jesse is utterly charming, and Stokes captures the ins and outs of Korean culture the way only an insider can. Stokes gets bonus points for handling some v [...]

    14. I really enjoyedVicariouslast year, so I was super excited whenFerociouspopped up on NetGalley! WithGirl Against the UniversePaula Stokes quickly earned a spot among my favorite authors, and each new book from her just proves how diverse her talents are. She created such an interesting near future world to tell Winter's story, and it just got deeper and more complex withFerocious . The VISE technology was fun to explore further in book two without it feeling too dense. Winter's struggles with bo [...]

    15. This book was FANFREAKINTASTIC!It was fast paced and I didn't want it to end. I loved it. I have read many of Paula Stokes books and they were all great and this one was GREAT too.Thank you so much for the opportunity to read an ARC of this wonderful bòok.

    17. Disclaimer: I received an ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest shared review.Ferocious is the second book in a duology, the first book being Vicarious. If you have not read the first book, please be advised that this review will contain spoilers of the first book.At the end of Vicarious, Winter found out that her sister Rose had already been dead for a number of years and that she actually has dissociative identity disorder (also known as DID). In an explosive finale of the first boo [...]

    18. Warning: this review may contain spoilers for VicariousFerocious is a worthy enough sequel to the psychological mystery that Vicarious was. In the previous book, most of the plot was devoted to Winter trying to solve her sister's murder while giving her mental illness the stink eye and looking very badass while doing all of that. Ferocious shifts the plot slightly into a revenge arc, where Winter, now aware of the circumstances of her sister's death, and starting to realize the breadth of her il [...]

    19. Winter Kim is back and ready for revenge in this explosive follow up to Vicarious.Winter Kim is on a mission.

    20. I'm a huge fan of Paula Stokes, and Vicarious, the first book in this duology is one of my favorite books of all time, so I was hugely excited for this follow up!I'll try to make this spoiler free. Winter is messed up from the end of Vicarious with a lot of twists that have made her determined to bring down the man who has ruined her life, Kyung. Together with Baz and Jesse, her love interest, they travel to Korea to find him. But her path to vengeance may not turn out the way she expects.Feroci [...]

    21. Review of Ferocious PLEASE NOTE THAT THERE WILL INVARIABLY BE SPOILERS FROM VICARIOUS WITHIN THIS REVIEW. PLEASE READ WITH CAUTION!FEROCIOUS takes readers back to the exciting world first experienced in VICARIOUS only this time the theme is revenge with Winter traveling to South Korea on a quest to avenged her sister's death and find the brother she never knew about. Where as VICARIOUS had a fast-paced plot and extream sense of danger and twists reveal, FEROCIOUS carefully builds upon these reve [...]

    22. Note: This review contains NO spoilersThis series is a first for me reading any of Paula Stokes' books. I was drawn in by the synopsis of both Vicarious and Ferocious. The synopsis alone boasted it's fast-adventure thriller that played with the mind. And I have to say that it does live up to it. Paula Stokes has created and continued this action/adventure-filled thriller following the main character on a "mission" to avenge those she loved dearly. Of course, the adventure flows as she travels to [...]

    23. I am not sure what I was expecting or hoping would happen. But, I can say that I got more than I expected.  And I am not sure what I can talk about without giving anything away.  So, I will do my best to be as thorough as possible, but really you should check this series out. Book 2 picks up right where the first book left off. Winter is still trying to deal with everything that happened and all of the new information that she got-literally pages from the end of the first book. So, I am very [...]

    24. My all time favorite characters are the badass ladies that take no shit, and Winter is one of them. Winter's story comes to a close Ferocious, and while I am sad to let her and Jesse go, it was a great ending for both of them.This is more of a heist story, rather than the mystery/murder thriller of the first book, and the tension didn't feel as high. But, then again, finding your sister's killer will always be a bit more emotionally taught than stealing something. Paula does it well  though, an [...]

    25. A solid sequel and finish to Vicarious! I enjoyed Vicarious and was excited to dive into its sequel. Ferocious did not disappoint - it raises the stakes even higher and takes the reader to South Korea(!!!), immerses the reader in Korean food(!) and culture, and continues the action-packed adventure from Vicarious. There were so many things I loved about Ferocious. I loved how Stokes made Winter fallible. We see right away that she's human - there’s a lot of struggles she’s facing, there are [...]

    26. This was a great follow up to Vicarious. After Winter's sister Rose's death, Gideon's death, the near death of two other people in her life, and the realization that she may have a brother, Winter is determined to bring down Kyung (the man who ruined her life in so many ways). This mission takes her back to California and even to South Korea where she was born and spent her early years.Winter is damaged from the events of her life and deals with some pretty heavy psychological issues. This is in [...]

    27. OH MAN THIS WAS ABSOLUTELY AHHMAAZING!!! Full Review to come.Official Review What an explosive conclusion! Ferocious is everything I hoped in a sequel and as I said in my review for Vicarious, I'm so not ready to move on from this mind-blowing series.Ferocious picks up as Winter plans for her revenge against Kyung, the man who’s caused her so much pain and took away everyone she loves. Intrigue, drama, mystery, action, and some humor keep the story moving along. There are so many twist and tur [...]

    28. I am always super nervous with going into second books because for the most part I usually don't like it nearly as much as the first one, but that wasn't the case for this one, I actually liked it as much as Vicarious (if not more). My favorite part was definitely the fact that Winter goes to South Korea because it was super cool getting a look into that culture. Besides getting that look into South Korea, I just thought the overall story was really good and it was a great conclusion to the duol [...]

    29. I really enjoyed Vicarious, so I was both excited and scared to read Ferocious! Fortunately, the follow-up was just as good as the predecessor. The book quickly draws you in and was filled with so much action. While the action is intense, so are the relationships in the book. Somehow it all balances out nicely. It also doesn't leave you hanging and answered a lot of questions from the first book. Winter continues to be clever, tenacious, and vulnerable. I like that she realizes she needs help an [...]

    30. I read the first book Vicarious and couldn't wait for the sequel Ferocious and let me tell you Paula did not disappoint at all. Ferocious starts off right where we left off in the previous book. Winter is still trying to come to terms with all that happened and is on her way to LA to meet her brother and save him. Through some other events she ends up in Seoul with Jessie where she must finally accept her past and save her future. I can't go into more detail for risk of spoiling this book but I [...]
