    1. 1.5 stars The pitch for this book is fabulous, and it's easy to see why it got the green light: a group of beautiful girls, loosely based on the Greek Furies, punishes teenagers for their indiscretions. Add to that an insanely gorgeous cover using a model with glorious red hair in a flowing dress, and most people are going to be irresistibly drawn to it. I know I was. Even now when I look at this beautiful girl on the cover, I want so badly to forgive her for her toxic contents. But I can't do i [...]

    2. This is Em:Em is an asshole. There's no way around it, she's weak and selfish and utterly insensitive. She tries to justify her unjustifiable actions using the Tru Wuvv Defense, but unfortunately for her, there has never yet been a convincing reason for cheating on your best friend with her boyfriend. Especially when your best friend is (shockingly) not secretly an evil bitch but a normal girl who loves you.On the other hand, there's Chase. Chase, while frustrating, is also by far the most inter [...]

    3. It could have been goodMy neighbor saw me reading this, and then asked me what the book was about. So, I looked down and realized that I was halfway through itd had no idea. And that just about sums up the entire experience.I thought this was going to be a book about the Furies. Perhaps we would get to see things from their perspective? Maybe we would learn more about them? But no. It's a book about punishing naughty teenagers. Told from their perspective. And why? Why were these two kids naught [...]

    5. Like me, Hades has lost his cool with this book!Crap.Crap.Damn!I was once again hoodwinked by another book with a striking cover.I know. I know.I should have learned my lesson with Carrier of the Mark.But let's face it: Fury's cover is really attractive.On the cover, the girl with the flaming red hair had a sly smile on her face as if she knows a secret that I don't.What can I say, cover got me curious.It drew me to read this book.I wanted to grab the book and devour its contents.The cover was b [...]

    6. By the time I reached page. 130 of Fury, the need to start ranting was already burning brightRemember this Japanese anime series, Hell Girl (Jigoku Shōjo)?In Hell Girl, a mysterious girl named Ai Enma appeared in front of mortals and gained their wish by sending their hated enemies to Hell, but in return of Ai's service, her clients would also be sent to Hell once their own lives came to an end.In the world of Hell Girl, nothing is black and white. Throughout the anime, we learn the dilemma of [...]

    7. 1.5 starsI really thought I would love "Fury." I usually strongly dislike paranormal reads, but this sounded like Courtney Summers' "Some Girls Are" with a lovely nasty twist. Instead, it is a bland, irritating, anticlimatic mess. MY REACTION TO EM:SHUT UP SHUT UP SHUT UP SHUT UPfriends18/img/shut-up/047gShe cheats with her best friend's boyfriend. She constantly tries to use the Trueeeee Loveeeee excuse as a good reason why she should fuck around behind her best friend's back, but frankly, it d [...]

    8. In the midst of reading a demanding (yet awesome) book for my book group I received an ARC of Fury by Elizabeth Miles. It seemed the perfect book to read while wooing my other one. So yesterday on my day off I cracked it open and read almost the entirety of the book in one setting. Yeah. It's the absolute right choice to have picked up to intersperse with another.In Ascension Maine everyone is gearing up for the holiday. Em is sad that her best friend, Gabby, will be in Spain for Christmas. Howe [...]

    9. *Sigh* What can I even begin to say about this book? The cover looked so intriguing, I loved the faery-esque clothing and startling red hair that turned to flames looked so good.And then I started reading the book. Totally did NOT live up to the cover's expectations. I didn't find the characters believable and I often wondered at their mental states. I didn't get why the Furies were in our world and got to decide who needed punishment and who didn't. I also Did Not Agree With Their Punishment Me [...]

    10. OkI dont know where to begin. I have read the first 33 pages of this book and I felt like gagging. Correction: I was gagging! I don't know how the cover and genres were so deceiving! It looked good, the titles was awesome and the plot-let's not even go there!The prologue was beautiful! I felt like I was on that bridge, but what did you do to your writing? It turned from suicide to karma? What the heck? What type of fury is that? I weas utterly deceived and I am angry for it! I didn't even finish [...]

    11. I was a little unsure what to expect as I picked this book up and although it was a bit slow to start, I ended up loving it! I'm always a fan of anything based on any sort of mythology and this was definitely in that vein. I loved the idea of the Furies even though I was a little confused at first. Once I finally grasped the concept, I fell totally in love with it and this book. My only complaint about this book really is that Emily did grate on my nerves a bit. But with the twist at the end tha [...]

    12. Warning: There are spoilers everywhere! Wow.As in really, wow.There are so many characters that I want to kill here that I might as well become a serial character killer. The only people I'd probably NOT want to kill are the adults, Melissa, and J.D. That's it. Almost everyone else can go DIE and burn in Hades for all I care.Including the stupid, stupid, stupid Furies themselves.It's like there's a contest for stupidity. Everyone's practically VYING for it! But wait, let me slow down. I'm being [...]

    13. SPOILER ALERTAfter reading three hundred pages of agony inducing melodrama, I found myself repeatedly asking, “But why?” Three hundred pages of a mundane story should have provided sufficient, satisfying answers for my question and then some, but it seems as though the author was preoccupied with the promise of a trilogy. Regardless of my theorising, the fact of the matter remains that there were some overarching questions left unanswered (which is really quite unacceptable), and thus led me [...]

    14. What is it, with the slaughter of Greek mythology these days?The authors writing it didn't seem to be big on actually researching Greek mythology. Or even reading it. They're like, 'wow, premade characters and premise, that way I don't actually have to think up anything new! Awesome!Which totally doesn't cut it.Something basic you should know if you want to write a novel based loosely off Greek mythology: to the Ancient Greeks, it wasn't mythology. It was religion. Therefore, there's no reason i [...]

    15. 1.5/5 - Seriously I need a half star! Now I understand why most reviewers gave it average to low ratings. I think I also share the same negative sentiments. There are things in this book that are really wrong for me. Take the book cover as an example, what did you see? A feisty looking girl with fiery red hair will give you an impression that you’re in for a kick-ass story with equally (based on the cover) kick-ass heroine. Well, I’m dead wrong. For one, the female lead, Em is the dullest he [...]

    16. Gosh, this book sounded hecka awesome. I love retellings and especially if this one is about a Greek mythological deity! Awesome, no? Hah. I was so misled. It’s not, not, not.First of all, both of the two main characters are jerkbags! Emily is a bitch who totally has no qualms about hooking up with her best friend’s boyfriend behind her back when she was away on a trip. Even if he was interested in her, there are some rules here! And obviously not trying to get with your friend’s boyfriend [...]

    17. I went into this novel totally blind. I knew that Lauren Kate loved it and that Elizabeth Miles and Lauren Oliver are friends and that the cover was gorgeous. That was it. In case you need more than pretty covers and excellent author recommendations/connections, here goes. This is a paranormal YA novel. The students in Ascension (small Maine town) are on winter break. Emily is excited because her crush is spending time with her. And Chase is happy because he's met this gorgeous girl and she seem [...]

    18. Talk about getting karma coming around to get you! I mean this book really makes you thinks twice about doing something to someone and really thinking about the consequences of it. Imagine, if that really happen? If Furies went around making people pay for what they did to others? I mean holy cow, this book is goood. So good, that I want to read it over and over again!The story line is amazingly good. I really enjoyed watching both characters go through hard times and watching them pay for their [...]

    19. I had very high expectations for this book. Such high, high expectations. But I haven't been this disappointed in a long time. This book looked great at first. Beautiful cover, promising idea and amazing prologue. Even the first few chapters were okay. A little slow but otherwise pretty good. It all went down from there. The book became boring, predictable and confusing. The question that bothered me through pretty much entire book is:why Em and Chase?I understand that Em (view spoiler)[ made ou [...]

    20. I’m pretty sure that the Furies (not to be confused with furries, gross), mythical women-spirits who enact karmic justice, are near the top of my list of things that are bad ass. I read Fury by Elizabeth Miles as a horror story – subsequently I enjoyed this debut novel VERY much.Read the rest of my review here

    21. This is a fabulous book - I ripped right through it, and am already eager for the next in the series! Really exciting plot, with lots of threads, but her writing makes them easy to follow. Some great turns of phrase - including laugh-out-loud lines, even in this drama. Absolutely enjoyed it - and as a man, it presented a solid account of the male teen experience too. Go Elizabeth!

    22. So this was not at all what I expected. While I wasn't sure what to expect - the description explains just enough without being vague but not enough for you to know what's going to happen - it certainly wasn't what I thought I would get. And wow was I surprised.We are introduced to Em and Chase - our two Fury victims (though they don't know it yet) and the two narrators through alternating chapters. Em is crushing on her best friend's boyfriend, and the thing about Miles' writing and Em's charac [...]

    23. Reviewed by Rabid ReadsThis book is very misleading. The cover and synopsis make it out to be a Paranormal Young Adult novel but for me, the story came up short in the supernatural department. I’m not a fan of YA per-se but when paired with an otherworldly plotline and/or characters I quite enjoy them. Fury would have been the ideal read had I been looking for a high school themed book. I was interested in the Greek mythology aspect, and that was severely lacking.Two characters commit acts tha [...]

    24. Elizabeth Miles’ Fury is one of those paranormal books that cross over into horror and it was remarkably done. It was action-packed, riveting, eerie, and fast-paced. I must admit that the beautiful cover lured me in and I was even more hooked as I buried myself between the pages.The opening of the story starts off slow but you can’t help but to continue reading as you know that something was rigorously wrong and things weren’t going to end well. The story follows two high school students, [...]

    25. Fury is about two high school students, Em and Chase, who are tormented by the furies for their misdeeds. Elizabeth Miles’ writing really captivated me and I just did not want to put the book down. It had a dark, slightly creepy feeling to it which I absolutely loved. Part of what kept me so interested in the book was my desire to find out how the Furies would choose to torment Em and Chase, as well as what their final punishment would be.Even though I was fascinated with this story, I do not [...]

    27. Original review posted on The Book Smugglers HEREREVIEWFirst Impressions:Ana: I approached Fury with a mix of excitement and trepidation. Excitement because I love Greek Mythology and I love the idea of the Furies as personifications of vengeance and one of my personal favourite stories of all time features the Furies: Neil Gaiman’s The Kindly Ones (Sandman Volume 9). Trepidation because I’ve read some really bad Greek retellings of late and have become wary of what seems to be the latest YA [...]

    28. I thought this book sounded like it would be pretty good, but I had no idea how amazing it was going to be! I absolutely loved it!This book is creepy and freaky, but not in the usual way. This book has been classed as paranormal horror, but it didn't scare me like a horror would. I had no problems reading it at night, it didn't give me nightmares, I wasn't jumping at every little noise - though there were definitely scary parts in it, what with random girls suddenly showing up in windows. No, th [...]

    29. Lang und breitWas fang ich bloß mit diesem Buch an? Ich bin mir nämlich nicht sicher, ob die ganzen Kritikpunkte, die ich gleich auffahren werde, nicht vielleicht von der Autorin gewollt waren, ob das ihr gewählter Stil war, um die Geschichte zu erzählen aber selbst wenn dem so ist, muss mir das ja nicht gefallen.Erst mal zum Guten: Worum es in dem Buch geht, darum macht schon der Titel kein großes Geheimnis. Fury, das sind zu Deutsch die Furien, griechische Rachegöttinnen. Dem Leser bleib [...]

    30. RATING: 3.5 stars-ish almost 4."She pulled the sleeves of her sweatshirt down around her thumbs and bit them - a habit from childhood, from being freaked by scary movies and ghost stories.That's what this was: a ghost story." "Fury" by Elizabeth Miles - pages 314-315For me, this is one of the sentences that best describes this book. A ghost story. A horror story of sorts. Even with all it's predictable cliches it manages, nonetheless, to touch some pretty uncomfortable subjects like teenage bull [...]
