Green-Eyed Envy is the second book in the Shades of Fury series by Kasey Mackenzie and an ACE Fantasy.
Jealousy can be a killer...
As a Fury, Marissa Holloway belongs to an Arcane race that has meted out justice since time immemorial. As Boston's chief magical investigator, it's her duty to solve any crimes committed by or against supernaturals.
Months have gone by since Riss discovered some unwelcome truths about her past--and managed to stop a supernatural war. Since then things have been quiet. Too quiet. But that all changes when the bodies of Bastai, shapeshifters also known as Cats, begin piling up in Boston's magical underbelly--even though the legendary shifters are supposed to have ninety-nine lives.
One common thread ties the victims together: all were old flames of FBI Agent Harper Cruz. And since Harper and Riss's lover Scott Murphy enjoyed a one-night stand before he and Riss reunited, the Fury has twice the incentive to crack the case wide open, before the killer's green-eyed gaze turns in Scott's direction...
Marissa Holloway is the Chief of the Magical Crimes Unit in Boston, it is her job to investigate - and solve, any crimes committed by or against the supernatural community. But Riss is much more than that.
She is a Fury - an immortal being who polices the arcane races.
When the bodies of Cat’s, who have ninety-nine lives, start turning up dead - Riss and her small crew in the MCU begin their investigation. It is quickly determined that the common factor between the Cat’s is FBI Agent Harper Cruz.
Riss and Harper have a common factor as well - Scott. Harper and Scott shared a night together years ago and now Riss is afraid he is on the killer’s hit list.
Determined to stop this serial killer before another body turns up - Riss and crew devise a plan to draw the killer out.
And if hunting a serial killer weren’t enough, Riss has to deal with Fury politics and assassination attempts against her own life - as well as those she loves.
I absolutely love this series I give Green-Eyed Envy 5 out of 5 stars.
