I had no idea what this book was about. Seriously. I’d heard my CP talking about how she wanted to read it and I tried to grab it at BEA but failed. Then it came out on galley grab and I took it and read it. And the whole time I’m reading it I’m asking one question: What the heck is going on?

I’m not sure how I felt about it. I keep flopping back and forth—much like the characters. They were all pretty fake, which they’re teenagers so I get it, but they lied and cheated and then pretended like they weren’t at fault. Lots of people got hurt and this book deals with that end of the story.

What is a fury, exactly? Well, it’s not a type of fairie (like I thought). It is, however, some kind of myth that estract revenge on those who seem to deserve it. With that said, well….you can see the conflict.

I didn’t really enjoy the main characters. I couldn’t stop reading the book because I had to know what the heck was going on! The writing was pretty good, and I did enjoy the book. Especially the last 60 pages or so.

But I don’t know. There’s something about it that I didn’t like so much. Maybe it was the characters. I read it a few weeks ago from writing this review, and I just don’t know.

On one hand, I can pull out a bunch of things I liked. On the other hand, I can pull out a bunch of things I didn’t like. I’m not really sure how I’m supposed to separate those things.
