A Fistful of Fire by Rebecca Chastain @Author_Rebecca


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.

Amazon (Everywhere Else):

Madison Fox just learned that her ability to see souls is more than a sight: It’s a weapon for fighting evil. The only problem is she doesn’t have a clue what she’s doing.

I really enjoyed reading this book.  Madison is broke and down on her luck, until she applies for and gets a job that she thinks is something totally different than what it is.  After a fast, shady, weird interview she’s hired.  Turns out Madison is qualified; however, she is clueless and has absolutely no idea how to do the job she is hired for.  Madison gets a little on-the-job training and makes mistakes due to her lack of experience; which everyone assures her is crazy.  Her co-worker’s learn that Madison truly is a blank slate when it comes to using and controlling her special abilities.  I was kept enthralled wondering at each new (and often funny) predicament Madison encountered.  I am really looking forward to the next book in this imaginative series.

This book was given to me in exchange for my honest review.
