Three high school girls become the avenging Furies of Greek legend.

We were only three angry girls, to begin with. Alix, the hot-tempered surfer chick; Stephanie, the tree-hugging activist; and me, Meg, the quiet foster kid, the one who never quite fit in. We hardly knew each other, but each of us nurtured a burning anger: at the jerks in our class, at our disappointing parents, at the whole flawed, unjust world.

We were only three angry girls, simmering uselessly in our ocean-side California town, until one day a mysterious, beautiful classmate named Ambrosia taught us what else we could be: Powerful. Deadly. Furious.

Why can't I wait? 
I'm a sucker for myths and legends. As soon as I heard about this novel I needed it. Three girls turning into furies? Bring it on. 


  1. In your "Why can't I wait?" you summed up every reason I'm looking forward to this one too!

  2. I just read another book about Greek Gods and their mission to save the Furies who had been taken by an enemy. I immediately wanted to know more about the Furies. This book is now high on my radar! Thanks for sharing!
