A Fistful of Fire by Rebecca Chastain
It’s Week Two of Madison Fox’s new job, and it’s even more crazy than the first! But at least she gets to go on her date. 🙂
Publisher’s Description: Madison Fox survived her first week as California’s newest illuminant enforcer, defending her region against imps, vervet, hounds, and one lascivious demon. If her grumpy boss, Mr. Pitt, was impressed, he hasn’t told Madison. In fact, there’s a lot her boss has been closemouthed about, including the dark secret haunting his past.
But Madison’s problems are just igniting. Neighboring regions report an uncharacteristic flare-up of evil, fire-breathing salamanders blaze unchecked across the city, and Black Friday looms. Trapped doing cleanup amid mobs of holiday shoppers, Madison watches from the sidelines as dubious allies insinuate themselves in her region.
As suspicions kindle and the mysterious evil gains strength, Madison must determine who she can trust—and whose rules to follow—before her region and career go up in flames.
Sizzling with adventure and sparking with magic, A Fistful of Fire is fused with Madison Fox’s trademark blend of humor and ass-kicking action.
Possible spoilers ahead.
Invested Ivana says says…
Fire throws out twists, turns, plots, and schemes that make your head spin. There’s quite a lot of action in this book, as well. Plus we get to meet several new creatures: citos, salamanders, prajurits, and a pooka — an intelligent, shape changing creature made of equal parts light and dark energy.
I think Madison is a lot of fun because she is not Superwoman, she doesn’t know everything, and she doesn’t take herself too seriously. I really enjoy the humor in these novels.
Madison Fox is one of the top awesome new series I’ve discovered in 2015. Sadly, it seems like it will be another year before Book 3 is released, but from what I’ve seen so far, it will be worth the wait.
