“sometimes sorry isn’t enough...”
Summary: Emily and Chase both have penance to pay. Emily who has been in love with her best friend’s boyfriend forever loses control when her friend is gone for the winter break. Chase, in an attempt to stay popular, humiliated someone he once cared for. Both were mistakes, but in Ascension where three beautiful and mysterious girls lurk, mistakes can be deadly.
Review: In one word, Fury is an eerie novel. Told in alternating perspectives Miles demonstrates how easy it is to make mistakes and the consequences that follow. The characters were easy to identify with, which is perhaps what makes the novel so compelling. It suggests that it could be anyone on the wrong end of the Furies’ wrath. The writing was well done, stark but fast paced, and the supportive characters and back story were well developed. Miles is not afraid to throw out certain rules when it comes to the plot, which makes this a completely unique and well told story.
