Goeglein Putnam Juvenile July 13, toeglein Source: Sara Jane Rispoli is a normal sixteen-year-old coping with school and a budding romance—until her parents and brother are kidnapped and she discovers her family is deeply embedded in the Chicago Outfit aka the mob.
Now on the run from a masked assassin, rogue cops and her turncoat uncle, Sara Jane is chased and attacked at every turn, fighting back with cold fury as she searches for her family.
Though armed with a. H Take On It A little about me: And if you are a fan of a kick ass heroine, then you are going to love Cold Fury. If you are a fan of non stop action in your reads, you are going to love Cold Fury. If you have ever lived in, visited, or just had a general fascination with the city of Chicago, you too are going to love Cold Fury.
If you like fast paced thrillers interlaced with a supernatural vibe, YOU are going to love Cold Fury. And if you like hints of romance with the potential for more, then yes, you are going to love Cold Fury as well. But what about the plot? Other than the first few chapters, where Sara Jane relays the past events leading up to the present, the story moves along at a very brisk pace. Boredom was definitely not a issue.
Goeglein has definitely done his research. There is so much history written into this story, it felt like a crash course on mob lore, and I totally, totally LOVED every minute of it. After finishing the book I goeglen immediately on my computer looking everything up just to see what was truth and what was fiction. And then there is the setting. I think it rocks when an author can take a setting and craft it so carefully, so lovingly, that it becomes a character unto itself.
Book Review: Cold Fury by T.M. Goeglein – The Flyleaf Review
Goeglein definitely accomplishes the same with Chicago in Cold Fury. I felt like I had walked those streets, sat in those diners and smoky bars, and rode to the top of the skyscrapers right along side Sara Jane.
Perhaps one of the biggest surprises to me was that Cold Fury has a definite supernatural element to it. Guys, that book is full!
And this supernatural aspect reminded me of another mafiaesque series I adore: If you are a fan of those books you should definitely give Cold Fury a try. So in conclusion, Cold Fury was a wild ride. I love the people, I love goetlein storyline and the history behind it and I love the action and kick butt heroine.

And I appreciated the cleverness of the story and the seamless writing style of the author. Goeglein takes us next. Cold Fury by T. I think Sara Jane Rispoli might be one of the most likable protagonists I have encountered.
On the one hand she is very much the typical teenage girl. She stresses about gorglein.
She worries over her appearance. She feels lonely and isolated at times. She wants to go to her high school dance. On the other hand, Sara Jane has been living a lie. Her very close knit family is harboring a secret, one that breaks wide open when her mom, dad and little brother are abducted. As in she has trained as a boxer.
Guys, I LOVE this part of Sara Jane, and the scenes where she trains with Willy who is just one of many cool characters in Cold Fury and the scenes where she actually puts that training to use, are beyond awesome. And Sara Jane has got an awesome sense of humor to boot.
There are loads of memorable lines in Cold Fury. Alongside Sara Jane are a cast of colorful characters.
There is Max Kissberg aw, love that name! And by the way, while there are hints of future romance in Cold Furyit definitely takes a backseat to other aspects of the book. We also encounter her Uncle Buddy and his detestable wife Greta.
But Sara Jane has an extended family as well, the family that comprises The Outfit, and these are some of my favorite characters in the story. And there is a brief glimpse of a character who I think is sure to play a larger role in upcoming books: Tyler Strozzini, head of the Money division of The Outfit. Goeglein does an impressive job of juggling fuey large cast of players without confusing the reader in the slightest.
