Sometimes sorry isn't enough.
Em Winters and Chase Singer discover that a little guilt isn't the only consequence of doing wrong. After Em hooks up with her best friend's boyfriend and Chase's secret harassment of a social outcast spirals out of control, three mysterious Furies - paranormal creatures that often assume the form of beautiful women - come to town to make sure that Em and Chase get what they deserve. Not everyone will survive - and those who do will discover there are worse punishments than death.
But when Em befriends outcast Drea and learns more about who and what the Furies really are, she becomes resolved above all to take them down and stop their plans. Little does Em know that, by confronting the Furies, she could become inextricably bound to them for life.
"Achingly gorgeous, Fury seduced me" - Lauren Kate, author of the bestselling Fallen series.
Book 1 in the Fury trilogy
Is vengeance deserved when one girl kisses another's boyfriend? When one student humiliates another? And what level of vengeance is appropriate more humiliation? Isolation? Death? Miles's debut novel explores the notion that "people really do get what they deserve," with mixed results. The attempted suicide of Sasha Bowlder, the humiliated student, is the starting point for two voyages of self-discovery: Emily Winters, who wrestles with her attraction to her best friend's boyfriend, and Chase Singer, burdened by his trailer-park origins and a dark secret about Sasha. They are first haunted, then openly approached by three beautiful, frightening women who hand out red flowers and cryptic dooms that neither can escape. Combined with the hothouse pressure of junior year, the tension causes both Em and Chase to crack. Much of the story resembles a teen horror flick, and in the end, the book veers from its "eye for an eye" trajectory, and the Furies become a foe to be vanquished instead of an unstoppable force. Readers won't understand why Em and Chase have been targeted any more than they do that question is left to future books. Ages 14 up.

Took way to long to get to the point, and the climax was a let down. The plot was also all over the place..
