Spring is coming, and the ice is slowly melting in Ascension... revealing the secrets buried beneath.

Emily Winters knows the Furies have roots in Ascension, Maine—but she’s about to discover that they’re deeper than she ever imagined. With

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

This book was heaps better than the first in the series. I was instantly sucked into the story this time and couldn't stop turning the pages. I'm so in love with the mythology that this series is based on, it's absolutely fascinating! As I hoped, Emily grew quite a bit as a character in the second book and I actually grew to really like her. And then there's JD that I can't help but love because he's just so sweet. The new characters that are introduced are great as I well and I quickly found my ...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

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 probably should've reread the first book seeing as I read it a couple years ago but I didn't. He was only in one book but I don't think I've ever felt the feeling of wasted oppurtunity as I did with Chase. He just seemed like he could be great, for some reason. I liked Em, she was tough and powered through. But honestly I just can't wait to see what happens next. I've never understood Em having feelings for JD. It just made no sense. There wasn't any chemistry and the feelings came from nowher ...more

This book is so much better than the first one in this series.
The vengeful Furies are still intruding the lives of Ascensions high school students, mixing it all up.
Everything is less ridiculous than before. The new characters are a great addition and have much more personality and even Emily improved, so one doesn't have to hate her here.
Suspenseful until the last page, I just can't not read the next one.

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

*A copy was provided by Simon Pulse for review purposes*

I have a policy that when I read the first book in a series and hate it, I always read the second book to give the author another try. That is what I did with this series. The first book, Fury , I didn’t care for at all, but this book was a huge improvement over it.

I think what made this book so much better than Fury was the fact that the story line was already established and explained. (view spoiler)

(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

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

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

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

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,

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

I couldn't wait to read what the Furies had in store for Ascension and I was not disappointed. Desperate to save JD, Em made a decision without fully understanding the consequences and now the Furies continue to torment her.

This plot focuses on Skylar, a new girl in town who has a hidden secret which has led her to Ascension. She is marked by the Furies and they fuel her quest for popularity. While Em wallows in her own issues, she is unaware that Gabby's new friend is under the influence of th

This book was an easy read, much like Fury, the first book in this trilogy. It lacked the suspense like the first one did, and Skylar's story and her part was much less interesting then Chase was, but over all still interesting. The story lien was easy to guess, especially the ending part, and the big "reveal". Honestly it was something I guessed at the ending of the last book. But still a series worthy of reading and enjoying!

Zitat:
„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)

Inhalt:
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.

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

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

I am the first to admit that I'm a sucker for anything mentioning Greek Mythology retellings. As such, I dove into the first book of this series, Fury, and came away rather disappointed. Yes, I enjoyed it enough to read the second installment, but the book was really slow to develop and I very nearly put it down. I also really disliked Em quite a lot (her actions left a very bad taste in my mouth), which made reading a story from her point of view very difficult. I am happy to report, therefore, ...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.

I loved Envy! It was a very exciting story and there was never a dull moment. A close second to Fury, Envy was a perfect blend of mythology, romance, suspense and action. I loved every second!

It's almost spring in Ascension, and the Furies are back. After promising to leave her alone, Em thinks she's safe from the Furies, but she's wrong. She can feel them haunting her. She can feel something bad is about to happen. Something big, but she's not sure what. Why won't they just leave her
