I don't know how it's possible, but even as the covers of the Fury trilogy have gotten more beautiful, the books themselves are getting far uglier. Whereas Fury was merely a train wreck I couldn't look away from, Envy is just frustratingly bad - the first book on steroids, or, in this case, more bad behavior, more shallow romance, and generally more moral ugliness. Don't be fooled by the cover. Just don't.

At this point, I don’t think the premise is salvageable. A bunch of teenagers engaging in q...more
This book presents a new twist on an old frustration of mine.

The frustration is: LACK OF COMMUNICATION. Do you know that, like, fifty percent of the angst and pointless drama in most books could be cut if the main character just COMMUNICATED with those around her? (Particularly the boyfriend/love interest…)
The twist: She can’t. At least, not without bringing down the wrath of the Furies to fuck up everyone’s lives even MORE.

So, I didn’t really like the first book that much. But it was interestin...more
Envy was a definite step up to Fury. I enjoyed Envy so much more than Fury and that is mainly due to the fact that the characters in this installment weren't as clueless and hence frustrating as Fury. Emily Winters knows the Furies are back. She doesn't ignore the obvious clues and occurrences and this time she's not going to wait for The Furies to come and get here, she's going to fight. I finally let out a sigh of relief when I saw how Emily isn't going to hide in her room and is actually tryi...more

Summary : the furies are back with a new target skylar
Characters :
Skylar: this is the brand new target of the furies, she just want to fit in and be loved by someone. At the end I finally know what she did to Lucy and I feel sad for her one mistake caused the furies to chase after her. Sometimes she can be ignorant but I still like her, alot of scenes makes me soo nervous for her.
Gabby : the sweet best friend that skylar and Em has, she is caring and sweet I hope on the...more
Lange habe ich dem zweiten Band der "Fury"-Trilogie entgegengefiebert. Ich habe den ersten Band erst vor wenigen Monaten gelesen und war so begeistert, dass ich am liebsten sofort gewusst hätte, wie es mit der Geschichte weitergeht. Nun, wo ich das Buch endlich in den Händen halten konnte, musste ich es natürlich direkt lesen und habe es nur selten aus den Händen legen können. Man könnte zu diesem Buch jetzt wirklich viel schreiben, die Aussage wäre jedoch immer gleich: Bitte mehr davon!

I didn't think that the people in the world could get shallower. I was wrong.

Man, people would do anything to climb the social ladder. Just think, if they applied all of this planning to good things, cancer might be cured.

Emily was all I love JD and maybe if I fix things, I can have him back. Seriously, too. Much. I get it, she wants to get back together with him, but the pining was too much.

Skylar. I don't think I've seen a character more shallower or faker. I understand that she wanted to be o...more

Aaaand the cover doesn't match at all. Good thing Fury sucked so I won't be tempted to buy this one.
3.5 stars

I thought this sequel to FURY started out stronger than the first and I liked the inclusion of Skylar as a POV. The excessive use of parentheses in Book #1 have been replaced by an excessive use of hyphens, and pop culture references still abound, but not quite as much. I wanted a bit more on what, exactly, happened to Zach, but I'm guessing that is addressed in Book #3. Gabby keeps getting more perfect, which is annoying, and sometimes the descriptions of clothing were too long, detail...more
(This review may contain spoilers).

I didn't actually intend to read the whole of this book today, but I started reading it before my work shift and then I carried on.

I didn't do a very good job of remembering what had happened in the previous book and unfortunately, I couldn't double check, since the book is either in storage or has been given away.

Still, after some confusion over who was who and which fury had starred in book one, I managed to settle in and enjoy the book fairly well. I've foun...more

The first book of this series sent shivers up and down my spine,but this one almost broke my heart.All the things the Furies do to drive Em -and the other people in Ascension,Maine go mad, -just build up the feeling that you're going to die if you don't get to the end of the book ASAP.And when you do get at the end of it,your heart breaks for all the things that happen.

Emily is popular, pretty and has caught the attention of The Furies, ancient Mean Girls who foment dissent and disaster and seem to be focused on making Emily's life a living hell. JD and Gabby, her best friend, can't know what Emily's problem is, or foul things will befall them. Drea, a new friend, seems to be a "bad girl" but is more clued in to what's going on and willing to fight the good fight, whatever that turns out to be.

Amid all the evil are time-honored high school themes, like who si...more

Da es sich hier um den zweiten Band handelt, sind Spoiler zum ersten Band sehr wahrscheinlich!
Endlich geht es weiter in Ascension, der Kleinstadt in Maine, in der im ersten Band 3 Furien für einiges an Aufregung sorgten. War im ersten Band hauptsächlich Emily das Opfer der Furien, richten sich im zweiten Band die Blicke der Rachegöttinnen auf Skylar. Sie in zieht zu ihrer Tante Nora, um die Schicksale ihrer Vergangenheit zu vergessen und in Ascension neu anzufangen. Ihr Ziel ist es endlich belie...more

„Das Sweatshirt war ein Zeichen, da war sie sich sicher – ein Zeichen dafür, dass sie in Ascension das Leben bekommen würde, das ihr zustand.“
(S. 44)

Skylar will ihr altes Leben hinter sich lassen. Sie zieht zu ihrer Tante Nora nach Ascension und möchte endlich ein normales Leben führen – außerhalb des Schattens ihrer Schwester. Sie will Freundinnen haben, vielleicht sogar „beliebt“ sein. Genau wie die begehrte Gabby, die so hübsch, selbstbewusst und trotzdem freundlich ist.

Skylar is determined to change her life, become one of the popular kids, and win the heart of the campus heartthrob. In the meantime, Drea and Em are still suffering from the consequences of their last encounter with the Furies that resulted in the deaths of their friends.

Being tormented is hard enough, but losing your closest friends to a bunch of furies isn't really fare, for Emily just getting through the day without interruption is hard enough. Having to lie to friends close to you is hard to stomach, but when you add in the furies, if you cross them than its not only your life, but also theirs as well. Keeping her promise, Emily has not shared what she went through and how hard it was for her, even her friends are noticing that her behavior has changed. So w...more

I borrowed this book from the library and as soon as I started reading, I was hooked. I got sucked into this one as quickly as I did with the first one.

Em's still being haunted by the three beautiful but super freaky girls she now knows are the Furies. Her neighbour--who also happens to be the guy she's in love with--isn't talking to her. She's becoming distant from her friends and can't concentrate on schoolwork. All she wants to do is spend time trying to figure out a way to stop the Furies fr...more
Envy picks up shortly after Fury ends, and we see Em having to deal with the aftermath of what the Furies did to her. She has to not only live with the guilt of her own actions, but she also has to live with the penalty they have inflicted - not being able to tell JD about what really happened, not knowing how to communicate the depth of her feelings in the midst of this huge misunderstanding. She's also making new friends, trying to get to the bottom of the Furies' origins with Drea, who has a...more
Miles' haphazard writing is back for another instalment, but whereas Fury had a few great characters, there's not much about this book I liked. Envy is told in dual perspective - Em, our simpering, shallow protagonist from the last book is back and tells the story with Skylar, the new girl at school laden with secrets. Still lacking in execution and solid grounding in mythology, Envy seems to take everything I disliked about Fury and run with it.

I had thought - hoped - that the events at the end...more

Warning: if you haven't read Fury the first book, my review might contain minor spoilers.

Emily Winters is determined to bring the Furies down after they have created havoc on her life. She doesn't believe that JD has forgotten her so she does everything she can to make him see she cares about him and only him, but another boy has caught her interest, and things soon heat up. Then there's Skylar who is new to the school and wants to be popular no matter who stands in her way. What will the Furies...more
Okay, let's get one thing straight. I am so mad I have to until September for the last book! I love this Trilogy and I can't wait to dive into the next book! I have to say, I thought JD was a good person for Em, but then Crow came into the picture. Please, tell me I am not the only one who is like in love with Crow?! There is something about him that just makes me think of one of my friends and I think he's perfect. I know that makes me sound crazy and messed up, but it's the truth. I, hm, I don...more

When I read the deliciously creepy book, Fury by Elizabeth Miles, I was in Gothic novel loving heaven, and I was looking forward to continuing the series. The follow up novel, Envy, certainly kept my interest, but I have to say that I enjoyed it less than the first book in the series. Written from the prospectives of Em Winters and a new character named, Skyler, this book has less of a Gothic feel to it than the first book. Moreover, I found that many things - including why Skyler was targeted b...more
Envy follows the lives of Em, Drea, JD and others from the first novel in this trilogy, Fury (my review here). We are reunited with these characters along with Ali, Ty and Meg, the beautiful 'cousins', also known to destroy the lives of others because they are Furies. Beautiful girls who wreak havoc on those who have wronged someone. The wrath they dealt out continues when the new girl in town, Skylar becomes close friends with Meg. Skylar moves to Ascension to start her life again and make the...more
Bohyně pomsty nebo-li Fúrie vám zničí život. Em by o tom mohla vyprávět. V minulém dílu měla všechno štěstí na dosah, ale Fúrie zničily vše, na čem Em záleželo. Například její vtah k Juddovi, do kterého se Em zamilovala. Fúrie donutily Judda zapomenout na jeho city a zapříčinily tak rozpad jejich kamarádství i možné lásky.
Do města se za tetičkou Norou stěhuje nová studentka Skylar, kterou pronásleduje její děsivá minulost. Na každém kroku vidí svou sestru Lucy, která byla vždy lepší než Sky. Pro...more
Mirror, Mirror on the wall, who's the vainest of them all?
This book did very well living up to the title "Envy".

Despite the plummeting reviews of the first book in the Fury Trilogy--Fury--this book was a lot better. Through out reading the novel I felt goosebumps when I knew something bad was going to happen, I felt warmth in my heart during romantic scenes, I felt overwhelmed when I was left with cliff hangers. The main characters have their flaws which help the readers connect on a certain lev...more
ENVY (The Fury Trilogy #2) by Elizabeth Miles

ENVY is the second novel in Elizabeth Miles’ series focusing on the quiet but cursed town of Ascension Maine. Some background information is required to keep focus on this particular storyline otherwise the reader will be lost. FURY is the first novel that sets the stage for Ascension’s fated townspeople when three beautiful women exact revenge for something that happened a very long time ago. The Greek goddesses of retribution known as the Furies wil...more

"Envy" by Elizabeth Miles is the second book in the "Fury" trilogy about a New England town visited by the Furies. The Furies seem bent on revenge for past mistreatment (past being several hundred years ago), and the teens of the town are the ones who will pay the price of their ancestors' violent behavior.

In the second book, Emily Winters is still recovering from the deaths in the first book as well as from her final run-in with the Furies when she was forced to swallow some seeds and be "bound...more
Originally Reviewed on The Book Smugglers

Holy vengeful furies, Batman! When I started Fury last year, it was with apprehension and fear - fear that the book would be some ridiculously contrived "retelling" that might involve a so-called "fury" falling in love with a hot teenage dude and thus being redeemed (gag). I was thrilled upon reading that first novel to discover that Elizabeth Miles' furies were true to their mythological roots - these are horrific characters bent on revenge at any cost,...more

My impression for the whole trilogy took a complete 90 degree turn after reading this book. My feelings for Fury were lukewarm at best, but Envy was a step way above my expectations for a sequel. Surprise, surprise. Envy was way better than Fury.

As the ice slowly melts away from Ascension, Emily's life is transforming, and so is Em herself. Gone was the perky, joyful Em that was Gabby's best friend, she was a hollow shell of her self, forever haunted by The Furies...more
