Fury, #2

The sequel to the ever popular Elizabeth Miles series is loosely based on the Greek Furies, beautiful girls who are goddesses of retribution and punish teenagers as their sins. While Fury seemed to be another YA retelling of classic tales, it turned out much darker and more sinister than the beautiful covers allude to. It's sequel, Envy, is as darkly beautiful and destructive as the first. The moral ambiguity of the Furies are questionable and add a sinister tone to the otherwise beautiful setting in Maine. Without giving too much away to those who haven't yet read Fury, those who enjoy the works of Poe mixed with Mean Girls and a dash of Greek mischief will adore the series.

The Furies are back in the next creepy installment of the Fury Trilogy in the sinister and cursed town of Ascension, Maine. These beautiful furies are in the business of revenge and are about to make it known. With the winter snow and ice melting secrets, the seemingly peaceful town is soon to be rocked with new discoveries and rivalries. With main characters who are essentially villains, the Furies themselves and their community are sure to have one heck of a spring.
