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

(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

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

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

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
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

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

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

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
