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.
This book starts out a bit slow. Much like the first one with Madison being Madison but things pick up fast after a few chapters. Madison learn quite a lot in this book and does a lot of growing up. Personal and in her new job. She gets used to her still new surroundings much better and adjust much better than the last book, I thought. She also seemed less annoying in this book. We learn about some more new magical creatures along with Madison. We also get to meet some new people and learn new things. This book contains quite the number of twists and turns that keep you engaged in the book and guessing. While I like Niko, I really thing Dr. Love is better fit for her. He balances her out very nicely. But I’m still a huge fan of Niko. We shall see how it all turns out. Overall I enjoyed this book, even bit more than the first one. It still has plenty of humor, action and suspense. If you are fan if Urban Fantasy you should give this series a try. I rate this book 4 ★
