Publisher's Summary

Madison Fox just learned 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, 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's hungry for Madison's soul. 

Madison needs to become an expert illuminant enforcer overnight to save her job, her region...and her life.  

A Fistful of Evil is a fresh new-adult urban fantasy from the author of the well-loved Gargoyle Guardian Chronicles. For a wildly imaginative story packed full of supernatural horrors, kick-butt action, and laugh-out-loud moments, you won't want to miss this series starter.

Reasonably entertaining

The introduction to a new reality is usually entertaining - and this one did not disappoint. I think it's important to note that our heroine's reality is composed of obvious good versus evil elements rather than interesting fantasy creations. This could become a serious problem if not handled well. There is humor in both the reality and the story, which is something I look for.

The heroine is incredibly young and stupid, which I usually can't stand, but for some reason I felt tolerant this time. She started me thinking about how stupid I was at her age and she makes the young me look good. I also told myself that she'd just been thrust into a whole new world, which was true. However, while the young me also had high hormone levels, I never lost my train of thought when a handsome man walked in.

So, overall, yes she is incredibly stupid - not listening to advice and not noticing obvious problems. However, she has an endearing element and the potential to be an entertaining klutz, which I think is what the author was going for. This book is good enough that I'll probably listen to at least one more book in the series.

GOOD START FOR A NEW SERIES

Entertaining. The heroine has a kind heart though she sometimes do not obey rules and get herself into trouble. Lots of action and lots of tensed moments. Interesting concept of good against evil. I am news to the writer and I find the series very promising. Well narrated/performed by Elise Arsenault. Her voices for both males and females were good. I will continue the series and I hope there will more to come.
