Synopsis: 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.
On the positive side, her money problems are over, she’s possibly discovered her purpose in life, and her coworker is smoking hot. On the negative side, evil creatures now actively hunt her, and deadly experiences are becoming the norm.
When she thinks it couldn’t get worse, a powerful evil sets up shop at a local hotel’s video game convention, and it’s got its eye on more than the gaming geeks: it is hungry for Madison’s soul. Madison needs to become an expert illuminant enforcer overnight to save her job, her region . . . and her life.
If Stephanie Plum fought evil with magic, it’d look a lot like this.
Review: Madison Fox is desperate to find a job as she doesn’t even have the money to cover a cup of coffee in her account. When Madison Fox answers a job advertisement, she gets more than she bargained for during the interview. Madison always thought her “soul-sight” made her a freak of nature and longed to find a way to turn it off, but she learns it’s more than a way to see someone’s soul – it’s a way to fight evil. Now she’s the newest illuminant enforcer and she knows nothing about how to do her job. A FISTFUL OF EVIL is an urban fantasy novel featuring a character who is definitely the Stephanie Plum of the supernatural world. Madison is a strong character, but totally inexperienced and unprepared for her new job as an illuminant enforcer. The supernatural world the author created is different than many others, which was enjoyable. A FISTFUL OF EVIL is a funny and heartfelt story with some strange characters and a compassionate heroine.
