I don’t read a lot of YA but when Simon & Schuster Canada sent me ENVY last summer to review, I decided to give the trilogy a go. First, I bought FURY, however because I wanted to start from the beginning.
I could hardly put either of them down. And when I finally pulled my nose out from behind them, I wanted to cry because I realized that the third book, ETERNITY, didn’t come out for several months – September to be exact. Thank goodness I have friends in high places! :p
ETERNITY was just as great as the first two books (FURY was my favourite of the bunch, though) and was the perfect conclusion to the series. I can totally see the CW picking up the rights to these books and making a really cool TV show. I know I would totally watch!
I’m not one of those reviewers who gives a full synopsis of books when I share my thoughts on books, but here are descriptions of the books so you can see what they are about . Also, check out the book trailer posted at the end of this review!
Between cozy traditions and parties with her friends, Emily loves the holidays. And this year’s even better–the guy she’s been into for months is finally noticing her. But Em knows if she starts things with him, there’s no turning back. Because his girlfriend is Em’s best friend.
On the other side of town, Chase is having problems of his own. The stress of his home life is starting to take its toll, and his social life is unraveling. But that’s nothing compared to what’s really haunting him. Chase has done something cruel…something the perfect guy he pretends to be would never do. And it’s only a matter of time before he’s exposed.
In Ascension, mistakes can be deadly. And three girls—three beautiful, mysterious girls—are here to choose who will pay.
Em and Chase have been chosen.
The Furies are back, and Emily Winters is about to discover that their roots in Ascension are deeper than she ever imagined. With the help of her new friend Drea, she vows to take them down. 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.
The nightmare Emily Winters has been living through for months shows no sign of ending, as the Furies stay on the peripheral, slowly driving her crazy. Em feels…different. She’s angry, and never cold, and too strong. It’s only a matter of time before she turns into the thing she hates the most. Em needs to take her fate into her own hands, but without Drea’s help, or anyone to turn to, Em is quickly running out of options.
Crow’s involvement with Em has grown more complicated. His visions are taking shape—and it doesn’t look good for Em. But Crow has a plan, and he will do anything to save her. Anything.
JD misses the Em he used to know…and love. She doesn’t seem like herself; it’s like she’s hiding something. When JD begins to learn the truth, he is as scared as he is determined to help her. And Em’s survival may be dependent on his actions.
The Furies love to play games, but this time they’re deadly serious…and they hate to lose.
