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.
Fury was a very interesting and different read. With all the books I've read, there is always something that reminds me of another book. Well, I have to say that Fury was refreshing. The book is told from two point of views, Chase and Em, but their mistakes were not the same.
I am going to start with Chase. First I want to say, It was super nice reading about a guy who was in the popular group and on the football team, but lived in a trailer and didn't come from a rich family. At first you start off feeling sorry for Chase. Even though he is popular, his life behind closed doors isn't so bright. He tries to be this good guy all the time, but when he finds out one of their friends named Sasha tried to commit suicide, the real story about Chase unravels. I don't want to give away to much, but what Chase has done was very serious and it has something to do with Sasha. I understood why the Fury picked him to make pay for his mistakes. Eventually down the line you can feel Chase's guilt and how sorry he was about everything, but it didn't change anything. In the end, the Fury got him good.
Emma was a different story for me. I understood why she was picked, but to be completely honest I didn't really care for her. Dating your best friends boyfriend isn't something we haven't read before or heard about before. I felt compared to what Chase has done, that was nothing. I didn't find any connection to Emma and felt that she was very immature and a little naive about it all and it sort of bugged me a bit. She started a little fling with her best friend's boyfriend Zach, who was the perfect bad boy. He was a little player and didn't care who he hurt in the process. The Fury needs to make him pay. With the ending of Fury I think they just might. I also felt that the Fury didn't make Emma pay enough. But then again what she has done was nothing compared to Chase.
In the end, I did enjoy Fury enough to finish it and hope for a second book. There were some shocking moments and some very sad moments. There were also some moments that made you want to just throw the book across the room. I recommend Fury and think that it needs to be on every ones TBR list. It's a nice change and fast paced story. Even though I didn't like Emma's part to much, I still say it's a Good Choice for Reading.
