The Furies are back in the second book of a chilling paranormal trilogy where revenge rules the day—and “sorry” isn’t going to cut it. 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 the help of her new friend Drea, she vows to dig them out. But it’s hard to focus when she’s desperate to make up with JD, and to figure out why Crow, a mysterious Ascension High dropout, seems to be shadowing her.
     Meanwhile, new girl Skylar McVoy is determined to leave her own dark past behind. So she’s thrilled when popular Gabby takes her under her wing, and the stunning and sophisticated Meg offers to give her a major makeover. But everyone knows what happens to the vainest girl of all…
     It’s tempting to be naughty. But beware: the Furies are always watching, and their power grows stronger by the day.

My Take:

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 what is a girl to do but talk to the one who is likely to listen Drea. 

Newcomer Skylar a typical sophmore who wants to fit in, but can't seem to forget her past as well. Coming to a small town and starting over is tough and with Skylar's mom in jail, getting away has never been easy. Because of what she desires she is met by a fury by the name of Meg who tries to help. But with that kind of help strings are always close by, Skylar doesn't see that her new found interest is hurting her as well as the town, she just wants attention. Can too much attention be to much for her or can it change her thinking forever.

In Envy, Miles gives us another fury, Meg who isn't quite like the others but in a way the same, gain trust than turn on that person. In the world with furies its hard not to think anyone can be a target and even though the three cousins seem nice and harmless they can turn a good day to anyone's nightmare. Emily of course has changed since Fury because she knows the moment she thinks of saying one thing, something happens like a warning that she can not tell anyone. With Drea's help she is able to have another perspective, and also someone who she can talk to about the tormentors. Everyone of course wants to be in spotlight but Skylar wanted more it seems, stealing to get inside was one warning that she was willing to whatever it took. So looking forward to the 3rd, and to see what else Emily has to go through to be able to be her again without having to look behind her back.

5/5 stars
