David Walliams. It's a very creative, original, strange movie but I like it. Good mystery with a twist. You have probably seen this but if not you have to. It's not my favorite psycological thriller but I really think it is the best one ever made. I was 11 years old when I had the fortunate though for the sleepless week that followed I didn't think I was so lucky when I saw the episode 'The Hungry Glass' We both took a step back. Last year I had been bitten by a stray in our neighborhood, and I still had the ankle scar to prove it.
The dog let out a wracking bark, startling us both back another step. My eyes skipped to Anna, then to the open doors on each side of us.
Kenzie Book 2: A Mother's Fury: A Mother’s Fury - Marilee Worrell - Google книги
Unless the Taskforce can decipher the web of lies devised by their enemies, the United States is about to find out. It has plot twists, changes in locations and diversions that are all interconnected download. He is given the option to save only one person he truly cares for. Racing against the clock, he cannot help but feel as if he chose the wrong option. He finds himself having to make a life altering decision, and everything around him seems to be falling apart. While he is battling with his demons, another is battling her own.
A thriller is when you throw a frog in a pot of hot water. There are some really interesting characters, and they don't really explain everything about all of the characters - you get to learn more about them as you go along.
To me at least! There wasn't a whole lot of romance in this one, there was a lot of romantic tension and buildup. Riss and Scott are getting back into their relationship from before and seem to be easing into it, so there's no hot and heavy love to see, but there's still love between the two. I can't wait to see where else the storyline will go with Riss, Scott and the others.
The ending was good. After awhile I so totally nailed the killer before the big reveal. And there was still a nice little calm ending--can't quite say HEA since the story ain't over yet--for the characters. Got a chuckle out of me! Overall rating 4. Book Blurb: Jealousy can be a killer 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 My thoughts: 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. Riss and Harper have a common factor as well - Scott. Determined to stop this serial killer before another body turns up - Riss and crew devise a plan to draw the killer out. I absolutely love this series! I give Green-Eyed Envy 5 out of 5 stars.

Based on the cover alone, I was expecting a Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy We can try hard not to judge a book by its cover, but even the most noble among us will fail to be completely impartial when they crack a book for the first time. Based on the cover alone, I was expecting a sexy, gritty urban fantasy with a tough as nails protagonist. The actual book turned out to be something quite different. It read more like Miss Congeniality takes on urban fantasy than anything else. I would describe her as spunky and maybe a bit sassy. The scenes with her boyfriend Scott were pretty innocuous too.
No romantic tension, and barely any chemistry that I could detect either. This book is urban fantasy lite with a feisty rather than fierce protagonist in a story worthy of the next Miss Congeniality movie. Sexual Content: Kissing. References to sex View all 4 comments.
Mar 05, Kim rated it it was ok Shelves: has-read. This book falls in the typical "second book of the series" category. It wasn't horrible, but I felt that the author really over did it. There were to many storylines going on in this book. Had the author stuck with the main one and done it well, then this book would have gotten a far better rating from me.
The main story is that a small time character in the first book is getting married. She is a ca This book falls in the typical "second book of the series" category. Cue Riss and team to find out who is killing the dead exes while along the way finding certain secrets. However, add in Riss having issues with her sister furies trying to kill her and her family, well it sets itself up for to much going on for a good concise story. Basically overkill. There are ways to set up the next book, without having to intermingle a complete separate story within a story.
But I digress, read the book and see for yourself. Do people really keep idiotic secrets from their loved ones like these that are wrote about? I mean seriously. So juvenile. My hope is that the next book will have a well written and compact story to go along with this amazing world and great characters the author has wrote about.
The book I'm reading is about this woman that investigates crimes and stuff like that. She is trying to find out who is committing a lot of murders. The murders are having to do with this girl's exs. They came up with this conclusion because all the victims are guys and they all had a relationship with her. Later, the girl and his boyfriend interview a lot of people the seem like suspects to them. They find a lot of information and they get to one suspect that is really close to being the one t The book I'm reading is about this woman that investigates crimes and stuff like that.
They find a lot of information and they get to one suspect that is really close to being the one that is murdering these men. The catch is that the one they think is the murderer is a man. They thought it was him because he knows a lot of information that they haven't let even the press know.
When they are interviewing him, his acts make him look very suspicious. He tells them to investigate another person and check his love life. At the end they find out it was someone eles he was Paul Meritton. What I think I didn't like about the book was that the aurthor took forever to actually get the reader into the story. I was like around half of the book to get into it.
I got interested in the book when all the murdering started and then the author made you suspect who was the one killing everbody.
“Gone Baby Gone” and “Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead.”
That was about all I didn't like about the book. Something that I think that connects to me and the book is that once we had a student stealing a lot of things in the class and outside the class. The teacher was trying really hard to find out who this person was it turned out to be a girl that mostly nobody liked. She was crying when they found out, but she learned her lesson I think. Sep 05, Stacy rated it liked it. I still liked the book though.
Riss is still a kick-butt, no nonsense heroine. The immerision of Egyptian mythology of the Bastai and Hounds of Anubis is super interesting. And, my favorite Warhound Scott Murphy was there to protect his lady fury and still be his most dashing self. Kasey Mackenzie is also a full review will be on my blog: ashleysgotbookcitement.
Kasey Mackenzie is also a darn good writer. Her world building and character development are very skilled and her stories are always fast paced and compulsively readable. Mackenzie also excels at the who-done-it aspect. The reader is never quite sure who the bad guy is until the last couple chapters. My only issue with the book was that there was too many things going on. There was the hunt for a serial killer and something involving Fury politic's causing Riss's relatives to go into hiding. I would have liked it better if just the serial killer aspect was the main focus of the story and had the Fury politics beginnings saved for the next book.
Green-Eyed Envy was good, but just not as great as the first book. I could have had too high of expectations. I definitely say go pick up Red Hot Fury because it is fantastic and also continue reading the series. Mackenzie is a great writer and it's fun to be immersed in the world she has created.

Riss agrees to go undercover as a wedding planner to stay close to Harper and Penn and protect him from the killer. The little fact that Scott also slept with Harper makes Riss extremely anxious to catch the killer.
I enjoy this series. It has been a while since I read the first book but I was able to jump right back in with the characters. I've read reviews that knock the storyline for not being dark enough for urban fantasy. I find it to be refreshing that we can have a kick ass heroine without all of the angst. The addition of the storyline with Riss' grandmother fleshed out the book and made it a good read.
I look forward to reading the next book in the series. Too many subplots that were placed in the book just to set up the next story that didn't cohesively flow with the major plot of this book. Too many inconsistencies, one minute they are in a sedan and the next a Ferrari? And last time I checked, when it's before 1 in the afternoon there are more than 9 hours left in a day. Bad transitions between scenes. At one point I thought she slept and woke up in her office when a half paragraph into reading I realized she was actually in her apartment.
And Too many subplots that were placed in the book just to set up the next story that didn't cohesively flow with the major plot of this book. And the romance Riss's relationship with Scott is lukewarm at best making me care very little to the future success or failure or their union. Some of the reactions from the chatters were overdramatic making me feel like I was reading a rendition of a soap opera. Just blah. I have no desire to pick up the 3rd installment of this series. Sep 13, Tamara rated it really liked it Shelves: paranormal. I must say it is nice to be able to read something light and easy that doesn't suffer for being light and easy.
The story itself has no big logical errors. Although the back and forth of suspects at the end is a bit trying, you believe all the steps along the way. And I can't tell you how nice it is to finally see two people who are supposed to be in a romantic relationship finally working together.

So many books try to make drama in the relationship by setting them against each other from the beginning but not this one. In this book the main couple work together from the very beginning.
Yeah, there are some secrets, but there entire lives aren't secret from each other. It's also nice to see the guy in a story being the one captured and used as bait. Not poor little woman in distress here. Overall a nice light read. May 29, Melody rated it liked it.
I understand the author leaking info to the reader before the heroine figures it out. This lets the reader feel smart. But this Chief investigator of the Magical Crimes Unit is too stupid to figure out what is repeatedly thrown in the reader's faces. It became tedius waiting for her to catch a clue. She is apparently not sharp and observant enough for her current career and should perhaps change to something more in line with her skill set such as exotic dancer.
Even when the villain swung his h I understand the author leaking info to the reader before the heroine figures it out. Even when the villain swung his hand toward her holding an unknown object but was interrupted she didn't investigate what the object and action signified. The story was pretty interesting if only the "heroine" could just catch a clue. Jan 27, Karyogini rated it really liked it Shelves: read-on Riss the Fury.
I like the action, I like the plot, and I like the character development too. I don't however appreciate the long monologues although they're far in-between. When they do come up, I practice speed reading. The part about her family. I need to read the next book! I just don't know if I'll like the whole Fury and Harpy politics. What a liar. I really like him though but that's just bad!

This book is intriguing, and really kept me on my toes on who the actual killer was. It definitely keeps me interested in this series. Feb 08, Joy Whiteside rated it it was amazing. I could not stop reading this fantastic book. From the very first word I was hooked, I had to finish, and continued to read until I had it done in one sitting.
The characters are amazing and you feel like you know each of them personally and that you are part of their world.
Green Eyed Envy
The story is amazing and does not let you down throughout. It moves along at a great pace and keeps you entertained throughout the entire book. This is an amazing read and I look forward to reading what happens next. While I love the covers of these books, the insides not so much. The first book was so so for me, so this one was going to be a make or break book for me. The story was moving very slow and it seemed like there wasn't anything happening other than Scott being annoyed at his cousin or Riss being annoyed at her family.
After 70 pages I ended up giving this one up, in the end this series just isn't for me. Readers also enjoyed. About Kasey MacKenzie. Kasey MacKenzie.
