Two Furies, from
an ancient vase
A medieval depiction of a harpy as a bird-woman
From Debbie Wiley Book Reviews
Red Hot Fury
by Kasey Mackenzie
Magical Investigator Marissa “Riss” Holloway senses something is amiss
with the corpse on the beach. What has been done to her fellow Fury?
Things rapidly go awry and soon Riss finds herself suspended from her
job. Worse yet, someone wants her dead and the only person she can turn
to for help is her ex-boyfriend, Scott Murphy, a Warhound. Will Riss
and Scott be able to work together to find out what is happening to the
arcane beings in their world?
Kasey Mackenzie has created a vast, imaginative world that is a breath
of fresh air to the urban fantasy genre. RED HOT FURY has a multitude
of arcane beings packed into this story, from Furies, to Warhounds, to
Oracles, to Giants and more. The scientific angle of the story
contrasts nicely with the mythological context of the storyline,
keeping the story modern even as it is rooted in legends and myths of
Riss is an intriguing character, hotheaded and full of passion. The
fast pace of RED HOT FURY fits perfectly with Riss’ own temperament as
a Fury. Riss doesn’t always make the most logical of choices but she
shows great loyalty and caring for her friends and family so it’s
almost impossible not to like her. She and Scott both need to mature a
bit but that naiveté is used to full advantage by Kasey
Mackenzie in the plot development.
RED HOT FURY is a spectacular debut from Kasey Mackenzie! Readers
looking for something just a bit different will appreciate the vast and
entertaining world from Ms. Mackenzie. Highly recommended!
