Marissa Holloway’s abilities and connections as a Fury help make her a damn good Chief Magical Investigator, but sometimes, Fury politics get in the way. Kind of hard to focus on the murders of male Bastai, or Cat shapeshifters, while worrying about family, the machinations of the Fury elders, and her Warhound boyfriend, Scott. But that’s exactly what Riss must do. Oh, the joys of policing Boston’s supernatural community.
Green-Eyed Envy is the second book in Kasey Mackenzie’s Shades of Fury series and it’s every bit as exciting as the first, Red Hot Fury. We get to see more of the shapeshifting communities and a bit of the interplay between the Cats and Warhounds. I’m constantly amazed with the world Kasey created, and love how she intertwines it with bits and pieces of history and mythology.
Riss is a dynamic character, and there are a few times she is faced with The Urban Fantasy Heroine Choice. You know what I’m talking about – the oh-god-why-are-you-running-up-the-stairs-instead-of-out-the-door moment 90% of UF heroines experience. I’m happy to say Riss doesn’t make this mistake. She’s smart, she’s cunning, and she sniffs out danger in time to not necessarily save herself, but develop a plan to catch the bad guy.
Kudos to Kasey Mackenzie for another heart-stopping book. 4 tombstones
