A Fistful of Evil (Illuminant Enforcer #1) by Rebecca Chastain

A Fistful of Evil

syns

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.

This a nice start to a new series.

We meet Madison just as she finds out that the ability to see souls is more than she thought and that she is part of the supernatural community that she has no idea excised.

She starts a job as an Illuminant Enforcer, which basically is there to protect the world for all evil being. Since she is pretty knew to the supernatural works she has all kind of things to learn . Some things she learns faster than other as she is thrown in to the pool, not knowing how to swim basically.

I really liked Madison, when we first meet her she is a just a girl trying make ends meet and struggling with money or to hold a job. She is feisty and snarky and sarcasm is her weapon of choice. She also has love for her cat, a lot of it. And she kind of lusts after the vet, Dr. Love <– no joke.

Once she gets thrown into the job, she adopts rather fast or at least the thought of it. She is trying to best and only with a few hours of training and some 101 on catching the evil beings gets her butt kicked more than once and quite good sometimes.

With being so new to the job and the world she didn’t know excited, she gets help from and Illuminant Enforcer a district over and he is quite the looker. And she can’t help herself drooling over him.

I really enjoyed this book for the most part. It was exciting, and suspenseful and kept me wanting for more. There was just a tiny things I disliked.

While I mainly liked Madison, she also started to get on my nerves half way through the book. She seemed pretty inpatient and also seemed like she had to proof something to herself more than others.

For example, she only at this for a day or so, so when things didn’t go well, she took it rather hard and whined way too much over it. Duh, she only just learned about everything and can’t know about everything yet. But that same goes, for when she got something right, she got over confident and with that just ended up in danger. She had quite the few “to stupid to live moments “

But overall it was good read and a good start to a new series.

I rate it at 3 ½ ★
