As the Chief Magical Investigator for the Boston PD, Marissa is expected to investigate the cases that are suspected of being arcane. She's also a Fury, one of those immortals beings who avenge the wronged, but when she shows up at her latest case's crime scene, things get personal. The victim is a Fury who is also an old friend of hers that was killed by an angry ex years ago, or so Marissa (Riss) thought. But it's not really her murdered friend, but someone made to look like her.
Things only get more dicey when Riss is suspended from her job for no reason at all. She's still determined to find out what happened to the victim and why it looks like her friend but with most of her resources gone, the only person left that can help is her ex-boyfriend Scott who is also a shape-shifting Warhound. If they don't manage to kill each other first, that is. Yet, this is no ordinary case. There's powerful people who will stop at nothing to make sure she doesn't investigate this specific crime and Marissa soon finds herself trying to stop a war. Or maybe almost starting one.
Let me start off by saying that I think the storyline about Furies is super original and creative and it's awesome to read about something other than vampires or werewolves. Don't get me wrong, I love vampires and werewolves story but variety is the spice of life and all that. Red Hot Fury is a super fast-paced story. The plot just swoons by and it was incredibly fun to read! However, if you're not paying attention, then you might miss some crucial scenes.
The characters are nicely fleshed out and the chemistry between Riss and Scott was yummy. Red Hot Fury is fabulous! There's plenty of kick-ass action scenes, the world-building is really interesting and I'm definitely looking forward to the next book in this new Urban Fantasy series.
