Name: Fury
Author: Elizabeth Miles
Publisher: Simon and Schuster

Summary: Between cozy traditions and parties with her friends, Emily loves the holidays. And this year’s even better--the guy she’s been into for months is finally noticing her. But Em knows if she starts things with him, there’s no turning back. Because his girlfriend is Em’s best friend. On the other side of town, Chase is having problems of his own. The stress of his home life is starting to take its toll, and his social life is unraveling. But that’s nothing compared to what’s really haunting him. Chase has done something cruel...something the perfect guy he pretends to be would never do. And it’s only a matter of time before he’s exposed

Review: Oh wow what an amazing refreshing YA novel. As soon as I opened it loads of things were going on. Haunting, Spooky, weird and mysterious moments had me hooked!

This book was completely opposite to what I was expecting. Its based on villains than "Damn sell in de stresses" This concept was so awesome, I mean how many books do you come across were its all about the Villains of the novel and you kind of feel sorry for them and not hate them even know you know their in the wrong. Also the fact that you actually feel you don't know who is in the right and who is in the wrong.

Through out this novel I was on edge. Every turn of the page made me weary. I was learning new things about 3 characters who were indeed mysterious. Elizabeth has written them spectacularly.
They were scary but yet so appealing. Ty, Ali and Meg. The epic furies. They are defiantly Love/hate characters and for me personally I loved them.  I love that this novel switches between two characters. I'm not usually keen on novels that do that but this has defiantly changed my mind. It switches between Emily and Chase. 

Red paint, Scary forests houses, smitten boys and spooky goings on are just some of the things that make this novel what it is. An amazing read I couldn't put down. Shocking, sad and angry out comings but yet so readable. The ending was amazing and left me on such a high. I cannot wait to see what the Furies get up to next. Revenge never tasted so sweet and is never written this good.

I loved this book cause I rarely see books where people get revenged on. Sometimes people need a taste of their own medicine.
