Synopsis: 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.
Review: A FISTFUL OF FIRE is the second Illuminant Enforcer novel, featuring Madison Fox. She’s weathered her first week and come out with her skin and lux intact. However, there are always new problems and there has been an unprecedented rise in evil in Madison’s region and the regions around hers. She’s stuck babysitting holiday shoppers cleaning up the citos which infest them; while “more experienced” enforcers are taking over her region in the name of “helping”. However new Madison is to the enforcer gig, she’s smart and resourceful which leads her to the truth. It’s good to see Madison use the resources at hand, like her new handbook (named Val), and an unexpected ally. A FISTFUL OF FIRE is a more-than-worthy successor to A FISTFUL OF EVIL and I can’t wait to see what’s in store next for Madison.
