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 Boston’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.

“I 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 I’ve read this year.”

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.

    I love the books so far I’m currently reading black heart betrayal. I’m just wondering how come the books start off like there is so much more information that we can go into but its not available? Are you considering writing prequels I can see several stories that can come from that like an in depth telling of Nan’s story and her sister Medea. Of course Marissa’s years as a fledgling Fury under the tutledge of Stacia. Maybe even Stacia’s story? I’m sure I’m not the first reader to make these suggestions but I just thought I would share how intriguing I find your series and how much more I would like to read about it.

    Dear Mrs. Mackenzie
    Im from New Zealand and i must say i absolutely love your series. I have found that the characters are well written and thought out. It is awesome that you have focused on an aspect of Greek mythology and made it your own. Please keep up the good work, i look forward to reading more of it and also please accept my condolences on the passing of your mother.

    I have read all 3 of the Shades of Fury books and loved them. Once I started to read them I was unable to put them down until I had finished reading them. I can’t wait until the next one comes out which I hope will be soon!

    Hi Ellie. Thanks so much for your kind words! I actually just picked back up on the fourth book, tentatively titled White-Knuckled Fear. I’m planning to put that out either later this year or sometime next year. Thanks again for reading. I greatly appreciate it.

    Hi Kelly. Sorry for the delayed reaction! I’ve been way behind on everything. I actually just started working on the fourth book, tentatively titled White-Knuckled Fear, again. Hopefully I’ll be able to put that out either later this year or early next year. Appreciate your support!
