A novel by DavidWeber. It's an expanded version of ''Path of the Fury'', which centers on elite drop commando Alicia [=DeVries=]' RoaringRampageOfRevenge across the galaxy as she hunts down the pirates who slaughtered her family. She has two key allies, though: a sentient starship named Megaira and an honest-to-gods Greek Fury named Tisiphone, who lives in her head. ''In Fury Born'' fleshes out Alicia's past: specifically, her military career from the academy to her induction into the Marine Corps to her getting recruited into the ranks of the Imperial Cadre: the most elite military branch humanity has to offer.

* GenreShift: The two prequel novels are pretty hard military sci-fi, which makes the sudden introduction of a figure from GreekMythology and shift into ScienceFantasy a little jarring.

* ShoutOut: There are [[{{Warhammer40000}} 40,000]] Cadre members. Given that they are essentially the Adeptus Astartes in a LighterAndSofter setting (and with David Weber writing, so there's none of that "Women can't be Space Marines" BS), this is probably not a coincidence.

* ItsPersonal: After the pirates raid Alley's homeworld and kill her ''entire'' extended family (Not to mention 99.5% of the planet's ''total population''), leaving her the SoleSurvivor, holy '''fuck''' is it personal. She kills all the raiders in a state of TranquilFury, then spends the rest of book on RoaringRampageOfRevenge against their leaders.

* CoolStarship: Megaira is a rare Alpha-synth starship: basically a single-seater destroyer, only lightning fast and armed to the teeth with an unparelleled EW suite.
