Simon & Schuster Books For Young Readers
Cory Graff is not alone in her head. Bound to a deal of desperation made when she was a child, Cory’s mind houses the Furies—the hawk and the serpent—lingering always, waiting for her to satisfy their bloodlust. After escaping the asylum where she was trapped for years, Cory knows how to keep the Furies quiet. By day, she lives a normal life, but by night, she tracks down targets the Furies send her way. And she brings down Justice upon them.
Cory’s perfected her system of survival, but when she meets a mysterious boy named Niko at her new school, she can’t figure out how she feels about him. For the first time, the Furies are quiet in her head around a guy. But does this mean that Cory’s finally found someone who she can trust, or are there greater factors at work? As Cory’s mind becomes a battlefield, with the Furies fighting for control, Cory will have to put everything on the line to hold on to what she’s worked so hard to build.
Synopsis from goodreads.com.
Why I'm waiting. It's Greek mythology transported into a modern day scenario and I cannot stay away from such things. I'm always fascinated by how authors can work with mythology time and time again. The modern angle makes the story all the more interesting. Also, the synopsis raises more questions, I want answered: Which kind of deal did Cory make to be saddled with the Furies? Can she regain control over her mind again? And what role does Niko play in all of this? It all makes me rub my hands together in happy anticipation and wait patiently until April for answers. :)
