For centuries, the Furies have lived among us. Long ago they were called witches and massacred by the thousands. But they're human just like us, except for a rare genetic mutation that they've hidden from the rest of the world for hundreds of years.

Now, a chance encounter with a beautiful woman named Ariel has led John Rogers into the middle of a secret war among the Furies. Ariel needs John's help in the battle between a rebellious faction of the clan and their elders. The grand prize in this war is a chance to remake the human race.

Mark Alpert's The Furies weaves cutting-edge science into an ingenious thriller, showing how a simple genetic twist could have inspired tales of witchcraft and sorcery, and how the paranormal could indeed be possible.

I've read and enjoyed two previous Alpert novels, and also liked this one very much. It has an exciting story line of conflict well seasoned with romance. Four stars.

This was the 1st novel I've ever read by this author. It wasn't a "bad" novel, but it was different. Nothing like I'd expected. It had a few places where it actually got exciting, though those places are few. The worst thing I could say about this novel is trying to understand the DNA of the women/males. Don't think I'd ever read it again, and not sure I'd read another of his. So I only gave it 2 stars.
