#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.


2.5/5

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

7th Blogoversary! (#Giveaway)

Back in 2009, I decided to start this blog for book reviews. I had my other blog for photography, but didn't want to mix anything with it. So Freda's Voice was born.

I deleted the first post I ever wrote. It was just a bunch of blathering on about starting the blog. Much like the first paragraph here.


So let's get to the good stuff.
You know I can only celebrate how far Freda's Voice has come by giving back to you, the readers. Without you, this would be for me and me alone, and what would be the point in that?!

There will be one US and one Canadian winner. They can each choose a book from Amazon valued at $10 or less. 

Easy enough, right?!
