It’s winter break in Ascension, Maine. The snow is falling and everything looks pristine and peaceful. But not all is as it seems...

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.
Fury is an electrifying debut that surprised me with its authentic characters and a plot-line with so many unexpected twists and turns. The idea of the whole story is extremely unique because of the combination of karma-induced problems and the truly ordinary setting in Maine.

Miles' writing was perfect for Fury. It had a suspenseful edge to it while still maintaining a smooth flow with the change of point-of-views between Em and Chase. Miles wove a complex web of lies and manipulation that even I was caught up in. Fury was truly an original read with a creative premise and a drama-packed plot.

The characters Em and Chase were two very down-to-earth characters with normal problems in high school. Their growth as characters was really noticeable and not rushed as the novel went on. They learned from their actions and realized their mistakes. I was surprised in how normal their interactions were with their friends like Zach and Gabby despite their own secrets. This just added even more deception and intrigue into the story. Em and Chase were two relatable and likable characters that will draw readers to them effortlessly.

Fury is part paranormal and part contemporary. The feel of the contemporary atmosphere, along with the paranormal aspects delivered a creative look on karma. Fury is full of deception and hard-core drama that will have readers furiously wanting the sequel.
