Fury by: Elizabeth Miles

Publication Date: August 2012

Overview: Sometimes sorry isn't enough....
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.

My thoughts: The tale of Furies. I am quite obsessed with Greek mythology so this one got me. I was drawn in immediately and wanted things to work out for Emily. I love her character strong with a touch of weakness, which happens to be J.D. And one you think it would be Zach.
Zach the all-star footballer and boyfriend to Gabby, Em's best friend. Emily thinks it's OK to be with him, because he draws her in and make her think he will dump her best friend and that they can continue their relationship. Poor girl, boys lie...friends hate, and great plans are dumb.
I didn't feel this way at first, but after the things that occur in this book it makes one change their way of thinking. I really wanted Emily to be happy with J.D. Considering her best friend is one of those girls who you love to hate and can really do without I wanted Emily to steal her man away. But by the end I wanted her to be happy with J.D. and forget about her friendship with Gabby.
Fate come in many ways, screw me and get screwed kinda thing, seems to be the outcome of this book. Chase forgets about his old friend and he gets what is coming to him. Now Emily is going to get what is coming to her. 

My rating: 5 stars
Up Next: Envy
