The Shades of Fury Series:

Hell hath nothing worse than a Fury scorned…

What they’re saying:

“Urban fantasy readers looking for something new will thrill to this exhilarating debut, populated with creatures from Greek myth…Riss is the perfect urban fantasy heroine–fresh, sassy, smart, and determined–and a cavalcade of fully developed side characters keep this twisty tale moving quickly.”

Publishers Weekly, Starred Review.

“An explosive new talent hits the UF market with this Shades of Fury series starter. Mackenzie introduces her heroine, Marissa Holloway, a fury and Bostonโ€™s chief magical investigator, who is at the epicenter of a case that could threaten the mortal/arcane accord. The byzantine layers of this plot are accented by kick-butt action and intriguing characterization, making Riss one captivating heroine. Money and time well spent!”

–Romantic Times Book Reviews, 4.5 Stars Top Pick, Nominated for 2010 Reviewers’ Choice Best Urban Fantasy Protagonist.

โ€œI loved it. Kasey Mackenzie is a brilliant new talent, and RED HOT FURY is fun, inventive, and has an awesome heroine. Easily the best book Iโ€™ve read this year.โ€

Karen Chance, New York Times Bestselling Author of the Cassie Palmer Series and Midnight’s Daughter.

“A fantastic, wild ride of a debut. I couldn’t put it down!”

–Nalini Singh, New York Times Bestselling Author of the Psy-Changeling and Guild Hunter Series.

“With its fascinating new world of Furies, Harpies, Oracles and Sidhes, RED HOT FURY pulls you in from page one, and the action doesn’t stop there. Marissa is a Fury with sass, skills and red leather . . . not to mention a sexy, Irish Warhound by her side. If you’re ready for a unique spin on all things paranormal–and you’re ready to stay up a little too late reading–grab RED HOT FURY and prepare to dive in. Kasey MacKenzie’s first Shades of Fury novel sets a new standard for urban fantasy, and I can’t wait to find out what happens next.”

–Chloe Neill, Author of the Chicagoland Vampire Series.

    Hi there…I’ve seen rave reviews for your book everywhere but I can’t seem to find it in ebook format! Is it going to be an ebook? I checked Chapters and Sony and nada. Sounds like a great read! Any idea if it will be coming in ebook soon?

    Thanks, looking forward to reading this asap!

    I loved this book. I was so hooked that it only took me a day – could not put it down!
    Loved the characters and their species. Completely loved that this was something other than vampires and werewolves. Furies & hell hounds were an ingenious choice! This new perspective was refreshing.
    Thank you for this new dimension in reading. It’s a world I’ll love to dive into. Keep them coming… please!!!!

    Wow I just finished Red Hot Fury and I could not put it down. I should have paced myself but I just got lost in the story and before I knew it I had finished it. Know I will have to wait til June for the next one. Pouting majorly.

  18. kaseymack says:


    Thanks so much for your awesome feedback. I think being unable to put the book down is just about the best compliment a writer can get! I love it when I can lose myself in a book like that. June will be here before we know it, now!

    I finished both of the books, and I loved both of them! They stole my heart. I can’t wait for the next one.

  20. Mari says:


    Don’t take too long on the third book. I want to know what is happening to Nan. But, please, not more good people dying on the next book. Do anything to them but don’t kill them.

  23. Kari says:

    Okay, Got both books from the library (there was a waiting list!!!) and finished them both in 3 days (I also had to work during that time). Can not wait for Black-Hearted Betrayal.
