I have been so excited to read Fury. The premise is fantastic, two not-so-perfect teens having to escape from three beautiful but evil girls who want to make them pay. I was so excited to see how these characters had sinned and how they dealt with having these issues turned against them.

Fury wasn't the impressive read I was expecting, but neither was it as terrible as some reviews have made it out to be. My issues with Fury were small, but there are a lot of them that add up to annoy me, for example the furies are in Ascension looking for people who have done bad things to get revenge on. Why then, do they choose a bully and a girl who had made-out with her best friends boyfriend, surely there are rapists and murderers to get? Why get two teens who, despite having done bad things, are doing what a lot of teens have done? A little issue, but annoying nonetheless.

I wasn't a fan of the characters. Em was spoilt and naive and while I can understand her whole crush on her best friend's boy and delusion that he felt the same, she really dealt with it in a stupid way and didn't stop to think 'hey, you know what? He might just be playing me...', which made me totally dislike her, she's supposed to be clever but comes across as whiney and stupid to me. Chase was the character that I liked the most, you can tell that he really is tortured by his actions and thus made me wonder why the Furies chose him, rather than somebody that shows no remorse... I did really like JD, Em's friend and later romance interest as he was the brains to Em's stupidity, telling her how it is, I liked that about him.

After reading this review a few times I have noticed how I really focus on the negatives in this book when there is positives. Give this one a go, it's a good read and I am predicting you won't want to miss the second in this series. ;)
When I picked up Fury I had really high hopes for it but sadly I have to say that this didn't live up to my expectations in a few ways, although I did still enjoy this.
The first disappointment was the characters. Although at some points I did enjoy being in their company and getting to know them better I never felt like I really knew like properly. Chase was my favourite character as I felt like he had more depth than the other characters around him. He is also the sort of character who you can easily feel sorry as well as understand the way he feels and acts throughout the book. Towards the end of the book I could really see how his experiences had changed him and made him grow into a stronger man.
The other characters didn't really have anything unique about them or they weren't in the book longer enough for me to feel like I knew them, they seemed a little bit to plain I guess, I just wish they had more to them.
The idea of this book was a unique one but I didn't feel it was written in a way where it ever became a very strong storyline which I was able to get consumed by. I think everything moved a bit too slow with things never really being revealed until the end so you were therefore left reading with nothing really happening. Maybe if it had been made a bit shorter and certain things cut out then it definitely would have felt like the storyline was a bit more ...busy.
The ending of the book made everything a little more worthwhile as I found it much more faster paced and actually revealed information.

By Jenny, Wondrous Reads TOP 500 REVIEWER on 8 Sept. 2011
Format: Hardcover
Fury is a 2011 debut I've been looking forward to for a while. I really enjoyed it and, while it isn't my all-time favourite book, it certainly hit my paranormal-loving mark. I've never read anything like this and have never encountered the Furies before, so to me it was all new. Revenge and karma is something that often crops up in YA books and movies, but not usually to this extent. The Furies in Fury take the form of three beautiful girls, Ty, Meg and Ali, and though they might look sexy and harmless, they're anything but. These girls are seductive, scheming and deadly, and I loved them!

I loved the whole idea behind the Furies and everything they stand for, even if they might actually be quite evil at their core. They exact revenge on wrong-doers, which is where main characters Em, Chase and Zach come into the story. They're basically liars and cheaters, and though Chase may seem innocent for most of the book, he's harbouring a secret that changes everything. The Furies are rooted in Greek mythology which is an area I've always wanted to know more about, and an area that I think has so far been overlooked in YA. I know a few more books along these lines have been published this year, so maybe Greek mythology could be a new trend for the future. Elizabeth Miles is a great author to start with if, like me, you're interested in getting your Greek on. It's so interesting!

Fury is written in the third person, which actually surprised me. It didn't suffer for it, but I personally would have liked to get to know the characters a bit better. I'm a fan of first-person narration because I can get into a character's head and experience their thoughts and feelings for myself, rather than be on the outside looking in.
