Sometimes sorry isn't enough....

It’s winter break in Ascension, Maine. The snow is falling and everything looks pristine and peaceful. But not all is as it seems...

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.

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

3/5 Oscars: Liked it

-- My Thoughts --

     I had heard a lot of mixed things about Elizabeth Miles's Fury series. So, I had to cut this curiosity loose and judge it for myself. It was definitely much better than I expected.
     Emily loves her best friend's boyfriend. She knows its wrong but she can't help herself. Chase once did something to humiliate a girl, and now, she's dead. He blames himself. Emily and Chase's life intertwine as three gorgeous, mysterious girls show up in their lives. And they learn that sometimes, sorry is not enough.
     The main factor that I loved about this book is its chilly atmosphere. I never knew that I was such a fan of horror and scary books as I discovered this month. I loved the mysterious vibe of the three Furies; Ty, Meg, and Ali. These three girls make up most of the book and they are creepy. They will give you sweet chills throughout the book, which sped up the plot and made it really hard to stop reading even for one minute.
     There's not a lot of romance in this book and it definitely doesn't take center stage, but it was there. This book is not about the romance, it's about the consequences of the actions you take for the sake of love. And many other things. This is not about one particular thing, as I discovered. It's about how these three Furies think that they can bring justice to people who did something wrong (wrong in their own point of view).
    I loved the author's writing style. It's short and blunt and to-the-point. I'm definitely reading the second book very soon. So, if you're a fan of paranormal mysteries and creepy gorgeous girls trying to kill you, then this book is one you'll enjoy.


  1. I like blunt writing, but that's only because i'm pretty blunt myself haha. Thanks for the review!

  2. I've had this book on my Nook for a long time now, but I still haven't read it. I've heard some pretty negative things and I think that kind of pushed me away from the book. I'm surprised to hear this is creepy, so maybe I'll put it in my October pile!

    1. Well, it is!
      It's not such a GREAT book but it is enjoyable :)

  3. I've heard mixed things about this book, too. It seems kind of interesting. If I ever diminish my TBR pile, I may check it out from the library. Great review!
