It’s winter break in Ascension, Maine. The snow is falling and everything looks pristine and peaceful. But not all is as it seems…
Between cozy traditions and parties with her friends, Emily loves the holidays. And this year’s even better—the guy she’s been into for months is finally noticing her. But Em knows if she starts things with him, there’s no turning back. Because his girlfriend is Em’s best friend.
On the other side of town, Chase is having problems of his own. The stress of his home life is starting to take its toll, and his social life is unraveling. But that’s nothing compared to what’s really haunting him. Chase has done something cruel…something the perfect guy he pretends to be would never do. And it’s only a matter of time before he’s exposed.
In Ascension, mistakes can be deadly. And three girls—three beautiful, mysterious girls—are here to choose who will pay. Em and Chase have been chosen.
There are certain evil things people will do to others to get back at them, perhaps be mean to another because you dislike that person, or simply accidentally harm someone else’s feelings. Sometimes, you regret what you have done, and other times you won’t. What if I told you that saying sorry simply isn’t enough in either case? What would you do if there was something out there, something evil and deceptive, which will make you pay for what you’ve done in the most cruel and torturing way possible? Do you believe in Karma? Fury will change your mind if you don’t believe in the simple phrase “what goes around comes around,” but in this case, what comes back at you is worse than what you’ve done…
This is the first installment of the Fury Trilogy, and I must say that this novel is highly underrated, but of course, that’s only my personal opinion. The concept of Fury is definitely my favorite element of the entire novel. These Furies select their pray and are not remorseful in the slightest bit. I couldn’t help but sympathize with their latest victims, Emily and Chase. They fall under one of the categories I mentioned above, and they each endure the worst kind of payback yet. Of course, the Furies treat them individually based on what they’ve done in the past. Now, wouldn’t you like to know what they’ve done and what kind of punishment they receive in return? My lips are sealed on revealing anything within the storyline, but I will leave you with this, this is series is definitely one you won’t want to miss!
Elizabeth Miles’ tale of Fury will have you on your toes and leave you wanting more! The ending of Fury will hit you like a ton of bricks as it is one that readers will least expect. Feel free to comment if you’d like for me to review the next two installments. Bring it on Furies!
I recommend Fury to those who enjoy Young Adult Fiction with some elements of Greek Mythology.
