Title: A Fistful of Evil (Madison Fox, Illuminant Enforcer #1)
Author: Rebecca Chastain
Published Date: August 2014
Genre: Urban Fantasy
***THIS BOOK WAS PROVIDED TO NERD GIRL IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
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.
This book starts a new series following Madison Fox and I can tell you that fans of books like the Darynda Jones Grave series will LOVE this.
As an introduction to both the world and the character this author does a phenomenal job and has left plenty of room for the story to develop. So why only the 4 stars? without giving spoilers there is one little bit that I just wish wasn’t in there. As a convention enthusiast and all around geek I just felt a huge disconnect in that moment which just took the edge of for me.
That being said urban fantasy lovers who enjoy a quirky female lead should snap this up.
4 out of 5 stars from me!
