In this chilling start to a trilogy rife with revenge, two teens learn the hard way: Sometimes sorry isn't enough.

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. Em and Chase have been chosen.

This was such an amazing book! It begged me to keep reading, and when I couldn't, I was swarmed with idea racing through my brain about it! I adored the teenage-drama-soap-opera-rom-com type plot mixed with the mystery and enigma. The characters she conceived were absolutely spectacular, one moment I hated Emily, the next, I found myself weeping for her. It was beautifully written and I cannot wait for Miles' next book!

This book had me anticipating with each page. The start seemed messy and complex, but it all came together rather quickly and I found it hard to put down.

Really interesting book. Kept me guessing till the end. SPOILER AHEAD!

I figured it would have something to do with The Furies of Greek mythology, but I was thrown by the different lore that Miles used, and so questioned my original assumption that the three cousins were Furies right until the second last chapter when it was confirmed by the characters. I eagerly look forward to the second book in the trilogy.

i normally do not read a lot of horror and mystery, but this book was pretty interesting. I loved that the story was so unusual and disturbing at times, it added a lot of originality to it. even so, not my type of book, but I'd recommend it to anyone who enjoys horror novels.
