Overview

Secrets and revenge make for desperate measures and fateful choices in this gripping conclusion to the Fury trilogy.

The weather is mild in Ascension…but beneath the surface, everything is burning up.

The nightmare Emily Winters has been living through for months shows no sign of ending, as the Furies stay on the peripheral, slowly driving her crazy. Em feels...different. She’s angry, and never cold, and too strong. It’s only a matter of time before she turns into the thing she hates the most. Em needs to take her fate into her own hands, but without Drea’s help, or anyone to turn to, Em is quickly running out of options.

Crow’s involvement with Em has grown more complicated. His visions are taking shape—and it doesn’t look good for Em. But Crow has a plan, and he will do anything to save her. Anything.

JD misses the Em he used to know...and love. She doesn’t seem like herself; it’s like she’s hiding something. When JD begins to learn the truth, he is as scared as he is determined to help her. And Em’s survival may be dependent on his actions.

The Furies love to play games, but this time they’re deadly serious…and they hate to lose.

Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Karen Jensen
In book three of The Fury Trilogy, Emily Winters is still being haunted as the Furies wreak havoc in the town of Ascension. One of the Furies, Ty, seems to be trying to switch places with her, and Em is fighting to keep control of her life. Meanwhile, her relationship with Crow is complicated as the two try to interpret his visions; her relationship with JD is strained; and people around town continue to die. Em and JD both think they have found separate ways to defeat the Furies, but a pure heart is not easy to come by—and at what cost? The paranormal elements really take front and center stage in this outing, although some of the background teen issues can still be felt layered beneath the quest for a way to end the curse that is haunting Emily. Throughout the series, Miles has put an emphasis on relationships and infuses the conclusion with elements that highlight this in positive ways. Those looking for a twinge of romance will appreciate the conclusion. There is, of course, a love triangle, but it did not overwhelm the plot or stall the narrative. In Eternity, Miles ratchets up the stakes and the tension and then brings the series to a satisfying conclusion. This is recommended where the first two books are popular, or for those looking for a new paranormal series that is not focused on angels, werewolves, or vampires. Reviewer: Karen Jensen
Kirkus Reviews
2013-08-15
An overall satisfying conclusion to a tale that imagines the Furies as three beautiful but terrifying supernatural sisters who thrive on vengeance against teens who they feel have done wrong. The fictional town of Ascension, Maine, is the backdrop for this modern reworking of Greek mythology. It offers up plenty of tried-and-true horror hallmarks--an eerie, seemingly sentient doll and a babbling crazy girl smearing on uneven lipstick among them. Readers will need to have read the earlier installments of the series, as this picks up right where Envy (2012) left off, with protagonist Em struggling both against her own seeming transformation into something evil and between two guys--a hard-drinking stereotypical bad boy but sensitive musician named Crow and her childhood best friend and literal boy next door, JD. Those looking for atmospheric and enjoyably spooky thrills will find plenty to like, but it seems to take JD in particular an awfully long time to work out what's really going on. However, the pacing does eventually pick up in the novel's final chapters, and fans of the first two will be certain to devour this. Fun to be sure, but also a case where shorter might have been sweeter--and more suspenseful. (Horror. 12 & up)
Children's Literature - Jeanna Sciarrotta
In Ascension, Maine, not all is as it seems. Which means JD and Emily had better figure out exactly what is going on, before the whole town falls prey to the mysterious tragedies that have befallen so many characters since the start of this trilogy. At the commencement of this book, everyone is still reeling from the fire and the tragic death of Drea. JD is convinced that he could have done something to prevent it and he is determined to make sure that nothing else goes wrong. Across the street, Emily strives to keep to herself and find a way to banish the furies that she unleashed, but she is running out of time as they threaten to overtake her and turn her into one of them. And Crow-Crow's music becomes tortured as he becomes more and more haunted by the visions of Emily's future. Readers will be on the edge of their seat in this final book in the trilogy, willing the characters to pool their knowledge and figure out just how to banish the Furies for good before it is too late. Book three in the "Fury" triology. Reviewer: Jeanna Sciarrotta

    She weakly reached up and clawed the badger that was looming over Faithkit. She struggled to find a clawhold. One of her claws attached to the bdger's skin and she hauled herself onto its back, firmly and hatefully sinking her teeth into its ear.

    Eternity is the much anticipated finale to the Fury trilogy whic

    Eternity is the much anticipated finale to the Fury trilogy which I highly enjoyed. If you read my review of Fury, you would know I wasn't that excited about it, but Envy? I really loved that book. So it is an understatement when I say I was excited for Eternity. I have to say, I wasn't disappointed with the way Elizabeth Miles wrapped up the story, even though it felt a bit rushed towards the end. As with the previous two books, we get interchanging POVs.. this time there is Em, JD, and even Crow, the last two being the two love interests, though this trilogy doesn't really center around the romance. By the time I was getting so frustrated with the three furies, but the good kind. The kind that makes me want to read the novel faster trying to reach the end and find out how to defeat those three damned girls/furies. I'm glad we got to see more of Crow because he was such an intriguing character to me. As for JD, I am just not a fan of him because he felt a little bit too desperate for me. However both characters grow on you and even though they are different, you do like them both. As for Em, she had her ups and downs but she also really grew on me. I have to point out that what makes this trilogy is the creepy factor which is incorporated in creepy descriptions and settings. I loved the way Elizabeth Miles describes everything and I have to admit I was spooked from time to time reading these books. I've read a couple of greek mythology novels and in all honesty this trilogy is the only one that I actually really enjoyed. I definitely recommend it to greek mythology fans. Only pass the verdict after you read Fury AND Envy because I was about to give up the trilogy but I picked up Envy, and I am glad I did!
