(3.5 stars) Riss’s friend Harper Cruz, a Cat shapeshifter, is marrying Pennington Banoub, a Hound shifter and the cousin of Riss’s boyfriend Scott. But as the wedding date approaches, someone is knocking off Harper’s old boyfriends. Not only is this troubling in itself, but Riss has a very personal reason to be worried as the murder spree continues: Scott had a fling with Harper while he and Riss were broken up, and if the killer knows, Scott could be the next target.

Green-Eyed Envy is rife with

This instalment read much like a mystery novel to me, with a serial killer at large, and the protagonist cracking her brain and busting her ass in trying to resolve the murders, find the killer and save the day. I liked having to think and deduce which suspect could be a potential killer. I read this book right after reading book #1, Red Hot Fury, and although I thought the general concept, premise, setup were decent and had potential, it still had the same issues that I experienced on the previ ...more

I really like Riss and her circle. She is strong, usually smart but at the same time a little vulnerable. If I was basing this review strictly on how much I like the characters and reading about their interactions with each other, it would get 4 stars, but there were issues I just couldn't ignore.

What I enjoyed:
* The cast. Riss and Scott. Harper and Penn. Trinity. Riss's family. They are all interesting and fun to read about.
* The Fury structure. There are major issues going down and they were j

Magical investigator Marissa 'Riss' Holloway has her hands full. Not only are Fury politics threatening her family, but Riss can't do anything to help since she has her plate full trying to hunt down an arcane serial killer who has somehow managed to kill three Catshifters despite the fact that, with 99 lives, 'Cats' are nearly immortal. And to make matters worse, the investigation is hitting pretty close to home because the common link to the murders involves a close friend, and one of the pote ...more

I really enjoyed RED HOT FURY, so there was no doubt in my mind that I would be grabbing a copy of GREEN EYED ENVY the day it came out. I find Riss (Marissa) sassy, fun, and determined. I have also really liked the rest of the characters so far in the series. Harper a friend and past fling of Scott's that we met in book one has a much bigger role in book two. The whole book is pretty much about her and a serial killer that is offing her ex boyf

This book is second in Ms. MacKenzie’s Shades of Fury series, but the first I’ve read…And I don’t think I’ll come back for more. Don’t get me wrong, I went in very little expectations, but the promise of the blurb constantly on the back of my mind. Unfortunately, the book didn’t meet those measly expectations or kept the promise of the blurb.

Though not really a fan of urban fantasy, I am a big fan of mythology, so I was naturally curious to see a “real-life” fury in action. Unlucky me, I got a s

This book continues where Red Hot Fury ended.
Marissa Holloway is the new Chief of the new Magical Crimes Unit of the Boston PD. With her human partner Trinity LaRue she is called to a murder scene, another Cat has been killed. And as Cats, or Bastai, have 99 lives, that sure is impressive. Will they have their first Arcane serial killer to catch? When they find out the one thing those victims have in common, is that they are previous lovers from Harper, Riss will have to find the killer before

Everyone knew that cats got way more than their fair share of lives, but the poor guy spread-eagle on the alley floor would have called BS on that.

Marissa "Riss" Holloway is a Fury and Boston's Chief Magical Investigator. She is investigating an arcane serial killer that is targeting former boyfriends of FBI Agent Harper Cruz. Cruz is a Bastai (Cat) engaged to Scott's(Riss' boyfriend) cousin, Pennington Banoub, a Hound. Riss agrees to go undercover as a wedding planner to stay close to Harper an

This book falls in the typical "second book of the series" category. It wasn't horrible, but I felt that the author really over did it. There were to many storylines going on in this book. Had the author stuck with the main one and done it well, then this book would have gotten a far better rating from me.

The main story is that a small time character in the first book is getting married. That character just happens to be Harper, the one time flame/friend of Marissa's boyfriend Scott. She is a ca

I understand the author leaking info to the reader before the heroine figures it out. This lets the reader feel smart. But this Chief investigator of the Magical Crimes Unit is too stupid to figure out what is repeatedly thrown in the reader's faces. It became tedius waiting for her to catch a clue. She is apparently not sharp and observant enough for her current career and should perhaps change to something more in line with her skill set such as exotic dancer. Even when the villain swung his h ...more

I could not stop reading this fantastic book. From the very first word I was hooked, I had to finish, and continued to read until I had it done in one sitting.

The characters are amazing and you feel like you know each of them personally and that you are part of their world.

The story is amazing and does not let you down throughout. It moves along at a great pace and keeps you entertained throughout the entire book.

This is an amazing read and I look forward to reading what happens next.

"Green-Eyed Envy" begins a few months after the first book ended. After preventing another war between the arcanes and the mundanes, Riss has returned to her job as Boston's Chief Magical Investigator. It seems the dead bodies of Bastai, shapreshifters who are also cats, are beginning to be discovered around the city. What makes this so unusual is that cats have 99 lives and therefore, are not likely to be killed. So, who has managed to cause these murders?

It seems that one common thread among

We can try hard not to judge a book by its cover, but even the most noble among us will fail to be completely impartial when they crack a book for the first time. That’s because however much we might try and deny it, the cover of a book makes certain promises even before we know what the book is about, and broken promises tend to disappoint readers, or at least that’s how I feel after finishing GREEN-EYED ENVY.

Based on the cover alone, I was expecting a

Kasey MacKenzie is a writer, a good writer, an intriguing writer and what she writes is a contribution to what I consider one of my favorite sub-genres in the Fantasy/Sci-Fi/Horror genres.
This is the second book in her "Shades of Fury" series. I loved the first book and I love this one even more. I have already started her third entry to the series, so good was this second book.
KM creates wonderful, diverse, surprising and noticeably filled out characters. Her vision of an alternate reality is

Review originally posted on my blog: A Book Obsession..

After thwarting another Fury's evil plot to take over the Sisterhood and start a war between the races, both Arcane and Mundane, Marissa gained the respect she deserves from the Boston PD. Not only does she finally have a partner, but she is also head of the new Magical Crimes Unit. Their caseload has been relatively easy, at least until male Cat shapeshifters started turning up murdered despite their ninety-nine lives. Aside from their spec

Jessica (a GREAT read)
Kasey MacKenzie's Green-Eyed Envy was a great followup to her debut, Red Hot Fury! I'll admit that what led me to read Kasey's first book was the knowledge that she was a local author and I just had to give her books a try! And they're really pretty good. Much different from my normal "save the world" urban fantasy books. There's still problems Riss has to deal with, but they tend to be more personal. And there's still lives at stake, just not the fate of humanity or supernatural well, sort of.. ...more

The book I'm reading is about this woman that investigates crimes and stuff like that. She is trying to find out who is committing a lot of murders. The murders are having to do with this girl's exs. They came up with this conclusion because all the victims are guys and they all had a relationship with her. Later, the girl and his boyfriend interview a lot of people the seem like suspects to them. They find a lot of information and they get to one suspect that is really close to being the one t ...more

If I could I would give this book 2 1/2 stars. So as a fan of rounding things up... I gave it three. As this book has been given a brief description I'll skip that.

I enjoyed that Riss (Marissa) the Tisiphone Fury of this book actually got to do some detective work. There was Scott in it and you got to see some of the Fury politics. Plus, it was nice to see the return of the Queen of the Harpies. The whole Nan waking up from a mystical coma but she goes and starts causing turmoil in the Fury wor

I LOVED the first book in this series, Red Hot Fury, and Green-Eyed Envy didn't quite live up to the greatness of the first. I still liked the book though. Riss is still a kick-butt, no nonsense heroine. The immerision of Egyptian mythology of the Bastai and Hounds of Anubis is super interesting. And, my favorite Warhound Scott Murphy was there to protect his lady fury and still be his most dashing self.

Kasey MacKenzie's Green-Eyed Envy is the second book in the Shades of Fury series and takes place several months after Red Hot Fury where secrets about Risa’s past were exposed and a plot to restart a war between humans and arcanes was stopped by Risa. The one positive that came from those events was that Risa ended up finding her mother and gaining a little brother.

Marissa (Risa) Holloway has since become the first official arcane (non-mortal) member of

3.8 stars (rounded up)

I want to let out the complaints first ... It's FRUSTRATING for me as a reader, when I feel that the identity of the serial killer is so glaringly obvious but neither Riss, Scott, or the rest of the MCU (Magical Crime Unit) can see it. I guess the identity from million miles away. I mean, the key is in the title, right? Green Eyed Envy. (view spoiler)

Too many subplots that were placed in the book just to set up the next story that didn't cohesively flow with the major plot of this book. Too many inconsistencies, one minute they are in a sedan and the next a Ferrari? And last time I checked, when it's before 1 in the afternoon there are more than 9 hours left in a day. Bad transitions between scenes. At one point I thought she slept and woke up in her office when a half paragraph into reading I realized she was actually in her apartment. And ...more

I must say it is nice to be able to read something light and easy that doesn't suffer for being light and easy. The story itself has no big logical errors. Although the back and forth of suspects at the end is a bit trying, you believe all the steps along the way. And I can't tell you how nice it is to finally see two people who are supposed to be in a romantic relationship finally working together. So many books try to make drama in the relationship by setting them against each other from the b ...more

Riss the Fury. :) This book is all about jealousy!

I like the action, I like the plot, and I like the character development too. I don't however appreciate the long monologues although they're far in-between. When they do come up, I practice speed reading. :P This book does finish it's main plot... but there is an underlying plot that doesn't get resolved. The part about her family. I need to read the next book! Grrr. I just don't know if I'll like the whole Fury and Harpy politics.

This was the second book of the Shades of Fury series by Kasey MacKenzie. It's about a world full of supernaturals called Acranes, where Mariss (Rissa) Is a Fury, who is also the law keeper of the supernatural world. She is trying to find a killer of Arcane members. While also dealing with a rising issue in the Fury Sisterhood. In this book Rissa plays undercover, in a posh wedding, to uncover who this killer is.

This book is intriguing, and really kept me on my toes on who the actual killer was

Darcy
While I love the covers of these books, the insides not so much. The first book was so so for me, so this one was going to be a make or break book for me. The story was moving very slow and it seemed like there wasn't anything happening other than Scott being annoyed at his cousin or Riss being annoyed at her family. After 70 pages I ended up giving this one up, in the end this series just isn't for me.
Enjee
Something different from the glut of vampire books. Marissa is a Fury and as such is part of the supernatural law enforcement element. This is a continuation of Red Hot Fury, but I did not recall all the details of that book. This is ultimately all about families and how they stick together while driving each other crazy. I'll read the next one in the series.
