review courtesy of One Book At A Time

It really was all about the cover for this one. But, I'm fan of mythology and the description and the cover lead me to believe it might be about the Furies. Thankfully I was right, but I wasn't overly into this story.

It really was all about the cover for this one. But, I'm fan of mythology and the description and the cover lead me to believe it might be about the Furies. Thankfully I was right, but I wasn't overly into this story.

I always have a hard time when the story starts out slow. I kept waiting for the story to actually start. It seems like we spend a lot of the story building the basis for the furies to come in, and I really just wasn't that interested. While they really are a part of the story from the beginning, it felt like the didn't really try to manipulate people until about half way through. While we had to wait for Emily's situation to fully play itself off, Chase's "crime" had already been done. I expected them to be messing with him more.

I also didn't really like either of the characters. But, I think that's the point. They both have to grow up and learn from their mistakes. Chase was easier for me to read. I don't think he meant to take his prank as far as he did. And he was truly sorry for it before the Furies every came in to make him pay for it. I was sorry he was the one who had to suffer the way he did. Emily seems to be more the focus of the story. I hated that she liked her best friend's boyfriend. And she was so good at justifying it in her mind. I really couldn't believe that she thought that her friends would forgive her. I actually though that the boyfriend "Zack" was worse than these two.

I don't feel like we got a good glimpse of the Furies. They seemed to be punishing trivial crimes when they are much worse things happening in the world. It seemed almost petty. But, then what did I expect from a teen novel. I'm not really sure if I will read the next one

    Awesome !!

    Thiss book is tottaly worth tje money and time you put into reading it . There is some lack of character bonding but the loss is made up for by the amazing suspense in the book. I was also EXTREMELY suprised by the ending. The thing about thes books that is kinda odd is the author never really " introduces" the Furies. She kimda like expect for u to know who they are. Anyways Overall an amazing book !

    A bit dark but good read

    One of the things I liked the most about Fury was the cover. I was happy the author decided to alternate narrators between chapters. That was definitely one of the things that made the book more interesting for me; unfortunately I didn't like Em until the end of the book. She was selfish and what she did isn't something a true friend would do. I know everyone makes mistakes but Em's was just too big for me to overlook. But I think that's what the author wants the reader to feel.



    The concept of the book itself is really interesting. I wish the author would've written more about Ty and her cousins but I think there will be a sequel. There are lots of good things about the book like some characters and the suspense also. I was scared for half the book because so many things were happening when I weren't expecting them to.



    Fury was not what I expected at all. It was a bit dark but is worth reading it.

    Great read and Fury would be a great movie!

    I really enjoyed "Fury"! It is not my usual genre choice, but read it on a recommendation of a friend and then I couldn't put it down. Ms. Miles' writing style is clear and well-paced. I could picture every scene vividly and think it would make a great movie. Looking forward to reading more about Em, JD, and Drea in the next part of the triology, "Envy".

    Great teen read.

    I didn't think it was the most amazing book I've ever read but thought it was okay and it had the element of curiosity going for it where I wanted to know what was going to happen. This might not be the great teen crossover that all adults will love.
