Firebug by Lish McBride
September 23, 2014
Henry Holt & Co.
Hardcover, 336 pgs

What it’s about:

Ava is a firebug. She can start fires with her mind, making her deadly assassin and valuable commodity to the head of the local Coterie. Think magical mafia here, led by one psycho vampire named Venus. Ava hates her job (killing is not fun), hates the Coterie (she was forced into an unbreakable blood pact), and most of all she hates Venus (Venus killed her mother), so when Venus puts a contract out on a friend of Ava’s, the firebug surprises everyone by refusing to accept the job. Now she and her friends are in a world of trouble as Venus and her army of lethal lapdogs hunt them down. Can Ava keep her friends and family safe or will Venus win again?

Why you might like it:

You will most definitely love Lock and Ezra, Ava’s totally hot besties. Lock is steady and responsible and Ezra is shamelessly cocky. The three together are a ton of fun. Do you like your paranormal with a side of hilarious? Lish McBride is a genius at serving up the perfect blend of horror and humor. If you are looking for a fast-paced story with suspense, a spectacular array of supernatural creatures (were-foxes, anyone?),and a sassy heroine with heart of gold, then look no further. This is the book for you. I loved everything about this book and look forward to more!

Firebug (Necromancer #3) by Lish McBride
September 23, 2014

From Goodreads:

“Ava is a firebug—she can start fires with her mind. Which would all be well and good if she weren’t caught in a deadly contract with the Coterie, a magical mafia. She’s one of their main hitmen . . . and she doesn’t like it one bit. Not least because her boss, Venus, killed Ava’s mother. When Venus asks Ava to kill a family friend, Ava rebels. She knows very well that you can’t say no to the Coterie and expect to get away with it, though, so she and her friends hit the road, trying desperately to think of a way out of the mess they find themselves in. Preferably keeping the murder to a minimum.”

I LOVE the dark humor is the Necromancer series and I am always pushing the first books on people. In fact, if you haven’t read Hold Me Closer, Necromancer and Necromancing the Stone (um, why haven’t you read them? With titles like that they NEED to me read!) I am so excited to get back in to that world.

Happy Reading!
