Week 16 Review: Fury

From Goodreads:
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.

My Review:
This was a really great book! A bit chilling, but really great! Furies are in the Greek what's-the-word, well, whatever that word is, so they've been mentioned in school before. Man, if books like these were in the curriculum, school would be so much more interesting!

Let's face it. Most people, they get careless with other people's feelings. They don't notice when they hurt somebody else. So this idea, that sorry sometimes isn't good enough, that's a bit scary, when you don't even know to say so in the first place!

I loved having both Em's POV and Chase's. I identified with Em, she was pretty nice, besides one big mistake and some following others. Chase, on the other hand, there was just something about him that I didn't like. Which it turns out, there was a reason!

Oh, that ending! That was a lot going on, it was just so good, and I want Envy now! I want to know how it's going to go with Em and JD! They were working towards something, and this ending pretty much wrecked it!

I just want more, this was such a great book! Really great!
