I’m completely thrilled to share that Green-Eyed Envy has earned my second starred review from Publishers Weekly. Considering how hard I worked to avoid the infamous “sophomore slump” on this book, I couldn’t be happier with this news!
“Marissa ‘Riss’ Holloway, chief magical investigator and Fury, takes on Boston’s first arcane serial killer in this engrossing sequel to 2010’s Red Hot Fury. For thousands of years, bitter hatred between Cats and Hounds has been the norm, and when three Cats are ritualistically tortured and viciously killed, the Hounds are the obvious suspects. All three victims were also ex-boyfriends of the first supernatural FBI special agent, Harper Cruz, who once had a fling with Riss’s current boyfriend, Warhound Scott Murphy. Harper’s upcoming marriage to a Hound might be the impetus behind the slayings, so Riss goes undercover as Harper’s wedding planner. Mackenzie’s writing is clean and clever; the plot is twisty and intriguing; and Riss’s charm and sass elevate her above many other fantasy heroines.”
