#95: Fury - Elizabeth Miles

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.

AUTHOR BIO:
Elizabeth Miles is the author of The Fury Series (Fury, Envy, and Eternity), the edgy paranormal trilogy in which the Furies (the mythological goddesses of revenge) show up in a small New England town to make teenagers pay for their mistakes. The series has been called "darkly seductive," "atmospheric," and "spine-tingling."
Elizabeth lives in Gray, Maine, where she and her husband recently purchased an 18th century farmhouse. She is also a full-time reporter for an alternative newsweekly. She has two cats with whom she is obsessed. She loves pizza, Friday Night Lights, swimming, and musical theater. She is a Sagittarius and an only child, but she's been told she acts like neither. 


REVIEW:
Meh!
Most of the book was kind-of slow-paced. Then the end was scattered and ridiculous. At least, for me.
I want to like this book. There is cool elements like the Greek mythology mixed with a ghost story. Toss it up with a murder mystery and you have a great premise. It all worked for me. I even liked how well crafted Em was as a character. I'm just not convinced the series has enough of anything else for me to continue reading. 
Then again, curiosity may get the best of me. That alone could be the reason I grab the next book, but don't count on it.

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.
