|aAfter high school junior Emily hooks up with her best friend's boyfriend, and football quarterback Chase's life spirals out of control, three mysterious Furies--paranormal creatures that often assume the form of beautiful women--come to town to make sure that Emily and Chase get what they deserve.
古希臘神話中有三個「憤怒女神」，緊盯著世上每一個犯錯的人，對他們施加報應。她們存活了無數個世紀，擁有魅惑人心的神秘力量，能操弄人的罪惡感、欲望與恐懼，讓犯錯者引火自焚…… 冬季，阿森辛高中，雪白校園染上了一名自殺者的鮮血。 不久，校外出現了三名容貌絕美的神秘女子，在擦身而過的兩位同學身上，留下了謎樣的印記。 明星足球隊員查斯向來是校內的「完美男孩」，無論面對學業或愛情，他總是戰戰兢兢，深怕染上一絲汙點。然而在內心深處，卻埋藏一件令他深深懊悔的往事。這個秘密若公諸於世，他將失去一切。 艾米莉是個平凡的女孩，她早已習慣活在最要好朋友的光環之下。然而，心中真正的欲望終究藏不住──她愛上了不該愛的人，更情不自禁地越了界。 在憤怒女神的遊戲規則中，種什麼因，得什麼果，沒有曖昧地帶。查斯和艾米莉究竟踏錯了哪一步，才招致女神的怒火？當女神威脅兩人心愛的人的性命，他們又該怎麼做，才能扭轉命運？ 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. ★本書中譯版《憤怒女神》由寂寞出版。 作者簡介 伊莉莎白．邁爾斯Elizabeth Miles 畢業於波士頓大學，現居美國波特蘭，於獨立報紙擔任記者，曾獲新英格蘭記者協會與獨立報紙協會表揚，《憤怒女神》是她的第一本創作，就讓書迷大為驚豔。 Elizabeth Miles lives in Portland, Maine, and writes for an alternative newsweekly.
