Fury by Elizabeth Miles
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.Click "Read more" to read the ending of Fury so you'll be ready for the next installment of the series!
After Ty tricks Chase in to letting go on the railing and reveals what she truly is, Chase plummets to his death which is eerily similar to Sasha's suicide attempt in the beginning. The school is reeling with the news, especially Em who can't get the hectic last voice mail Chase left her out of her head. She knows she should have continued on the way to see him and feels guilty plus she's creeped out after stopping to help the girl with the red ribbon tied around her neck to the hospital.
Em goes to dig around at Chase's trailer and finds the notes he and Sasha had been exchanging. Em figures out that it was Chase who posted those photos and quotes from Facebook in the school. In a desperate attempt to figure out things, Em heads to the hospital to visit Sasha who is in a coma. While Em is talking to Sasha, Sasha rises with a creepy smile on her face that looks like the blonde girl that has been following her around. Em also puts together that Chase talked about Ty having two cousins, Ali and Meg. Em rushes out of the hospital and is run off the road by a car.
Inside the car is Drea who says that Em's car breaks have been cut and she would have died. Drea also notices the flower on Em's bag and tells her she know what's happening but Em refuses to talk. Later that night, Em has a fight with JD who doesn't take her seriously and is visited by Ali. Then she makes up with Gabby who says she saw Zach with another girl. Em thinks things are going to be okay and makes up with JD, asking him out to the bonfire. She then goes to Drea's and Drea reveals that the three sisters are the Furies and gives Em some reading material. Before they can go to the bonfire, she gets a call from Gabby telling her that she is stranded at the new mall and needs a ride. Em goes but finds out quickly that she was tricked.
The Furies try to kill her for cheating with her best friend's boyfriend and Em runs. Ty helps her escape her two sisters but when Em gets back to her car, the three sister are waiting for her, telling her that their debt is even. Em realizes JD is there and has fallen into a hole and been knocked out. A cement crane is about to fill the hole. She is able to get JD out but he is going to die anyway so she takes the five berries Ty offers her even though Ty warns her there will be consequences and she will be tied to the Furies forever. JD lives but hates her and she can't tell him the truth. Em knows one thing for certain and that is that she is going to hurt the Furies.
Meanwhile, off at a new school Zach meets a beautiful girl with long blonde hair who hands him a flower while leading him off. She says her name is Ali.
