Fury by Elizabeth Miles

It’s winter break in Ascension, Maine. The snow is falling and everything looks pristine and peaceful. But all is not as it seems...
Em is thrilled that the guy she’s been into for months is finally noticing her. But if she starts things with him, there’s no turning back. Because his girlfriend is Em’s best friend. And on the other side of town, Chase’s social life is unraveling and the stress of his home life is starting to take its toll. But that’s nothing compared to what’s really haunting him. Chase has done something cruel....And it’s only a matter of time before he’s exposed.

In Ascension, mistakes can be deadly. There are three girls—three beautiful, mysterious girls—to choose who will pay. Em and Chase have been chosen.

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.
