Description

In book one of the Fury trilogy, Em Winters and Chase Singer discover that a little guilt isn't the only consequence of doing wrong. After Em hooks up with her best friend's boyfriend and Chase's secret harassment of a social outcast spirals out of control, three mysterious Furies-paranormal creatures that often assume the form of beautiful women-come to town to make sure that Em and Chase get what they deserve. Not everyone will survive-and those who do will discover there are worse punishments than death. But when Em befriends outcast Drea and learns more about who and what the Furies really are, she becomes resolved above all to take them down and stop their plans. Little does Em know that, by confronting the Furies, she could become inextricably bound to them for life.

Review quote

"Achingly gorgeous. "Fury" seduced me."--Lauren Kate, "New York Times" bestselling author of "Fallen" "Pick up Portland writer Elizabeth Miles' first novel, "Fury," and you might wonder if Stephen King once drove to her house from Bangor, sprinkling handfuls of "Carrie" dust along the way.... Greater forces are at work here than raging teenage hormones. Greater achievements are at stake than basketball games or going steady. And greater consequences await than any of the young people of Ascension can envision." "-The Portland Press Herald" Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE X-NONE MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name: "Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow: yes; mso-style-priority:99; mso-style-qformat: yes; mso-style-parent: ""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom: .0001pt; mso-pagination: widow-orphan; font-size:11.0pt; font-family: "Calibri,""sans-serif"; mso-ascii-font-family: Calibri; mso-ascii-theme-font: minor-latin; mso-fareast-font-family: "Times New Roman"; mso-fareast-theme-font: minor-fareast; mso-hansi-font-family: Calibri; mso-hansi-theme-font: minor-latin; mso-bidi-font-family: "Times New Roman"; mso-bidi-theme-font: minor-bidi;} "This novel sets a steady pace of increasing suspense.... The modernization of the Furies names is clever, and all of the teens and their personal dramas ring true. This intriguing novel might prompt discussions about mythology, bullying, and retribution." "-School Library Journal" "The furies are reinvented in eerie modern form, wreaking havoc in the lives of a group of teens in a fictional Maine town in this spine-prickling debut, first in a planned trilogy.... Deliciously chilling." "--Kirkus Reviews, July 15, 2011""" "A fresh dark twist on paranormal, with surprises around every corner. "Fury" kept me up all night!" --Nancy Holder, "New York Times" Bestselling Author of "Wicked" and "Crusade"
