Eternity Blog Tour: Forgiveness or Fury with Elizabeth Miles

Today I'm very excited to be working with the Paper Lantern Lit team and Elizabeth Miles on the blog tour for the final book in her trilogy, Eternity.

To start off, here's a bit about the book:
Eternity by Elizabeth Miles.

To be published September 3rd by Simon Pulse

Secrets and revenge make for desperate measures and fateful choices in this gripping conclusion to the Fury trilogy.
The weather is mild in Ascension…but beneath the surface, everything is burning up. The nightmare Emily Winters has been living through for months shows no sign of ending, as the Furies stay on the peripheral, slowly driving her crazy. Em feels...different. She’s angry, and never cold, and too strong. It’s only a matter of time before she turns into the thing she hates the most. Em needs to take her fate into her own hands, but without Drea’s help, or anyone to turn to, Em is quickly running out of options. Crow’s involvement with Em has grown more complicated. His visions are taking shape—and it doesn’t look good for Em. But Crow has a plan, and he will do anything to save her. Anything. JD misses the Em he used to know...and love. She doesn’t seem like herself; it’s like she’s hiding something. When JD begins to learn the truth, he is as scared as he is determined to help her. And Em’s survival may be dependent on his actions.
The Furies love to play games, but this time they’re deadly serious…and they hate to lose.

I'm definitely excited to find out how this trilogy ends! What happens to the furies? Does my ship work out or go down in flames? Does anything tragic happen? I'm looking forward to finding out!

But now, without further ado, Elizabeth Miles! Welcome!


Thank you for hosting me as part of the FORGIVENESS or FURY Blog Tour! I’m thrilled about the release of my third novel, ETERNITY, the final chapter of the FURY SERIES. At each tour stop, I’ll be offering advice to teens on how to handle difficult situations (some of which come from the Fury trilogy itself), and I’ll recommend either forgiveness…or fury. I’ll also suggest a few of my favorite YA titles that tackle these difficult scenarios.

Today’s question is: Someone cheated off my test – should I choose Forgiveness or Fury?
My Advice: It's easy to see how this type of transgression might bring on the desire for revenge -- after all, why should someone else get a good grade when you did all the studying? I wouldn't call in the Furies on this one, though. Do a better job of covering your paper next time (or move to a different seat), and the cheater's subsequent bad grade will be payback enough.

Great YA read about a similar situation: Girl in Translation by Jean Kwok.
Ever since I read Girl in Translation, I haven’t been able to get Kimberly Chang’s story out of my mind. This incredible novel focuses on Kimberly’s adjustment to America and the unique school environment here. Struggling to balance her daily life as a student with her secret double identity as an immigrant factory worker, Kimberly is often accused of cheating and can’t overcome the language barrier to defend herself.

Thank you, Elizabeth! I agree, calling in the Furies over someone cheating on your test might be a bit much. They've proven how intense they can be! And Girl in Translation definitely sounds like a great read!

 Elizabeth Miles grew up in Chappaqua, New York, not far from New York City. She graduated cum laude from Boston University in 2004, worked for several years at the Boston Phoenix, and now writes for the Portland Phoenix, an alternative weekly newspaper. She has won several awards from the New England Press Association and was nominated for an Association of Alternative Newsweeklies Award. Elizabeth serves on the board of trustees of Portland Players, a community theater and second home. She loves pizza; she can often be found running around on stage while scantily clad; and a cold winter night in Maine is one of the creepiest and most beautiful things she can think of. Eternity is her third novel.
