Madison can see souls. Honestly, it's kind of gross.

Madison Fox is shocked when she learns her soul sight is more than a distasteful affliction: It's a weapon for battling evil. Roped into a job she doesn't want, Madison wades into a world where monsters actively hunt her and deadly experiences are becoming the norm. Her survival depends on mastering the mechanics of her ethereal powers—fast. If only she had a clue what she was doing...

A Fistful of Evil (A Madison Fox Adventure #1) by Rebecca Chastain is a fun fantasy that I total got into right away and can't wait to read the next. It is hilarious at times and slightly suspense filled at times. A down-on-her-bank-account gal goes for a job interview and gets it but it is not what she excepted. It is supernatural in nature and something she needs trained in. Something she has had all her life but didn't know. It is so funny the way it is told, I giggle and laughed out loud more than once. Great read!

The plot was ok. The characters could use a little more building and more depth. The book had action, but the majority of the book was slow.

What can I say, I really enjoyed this book. My first taste of Rebecca Chastain's work and it definitely won't be the last. Another author to keep an eye out for. ^_^ We meet Madison, a very unique young woman with the ability to see souls. She's just landed herself a new job as the Illuminant enforcer and seriously has no idea what she's doing. Madison had no clue that her gift could be used to help and make her some money. Score! It was so much fun watching her learn and make mistakes (funny mistakes) while training for this new position. I swear I was giggling my head off in some parts, I couldn't help myself. To help Madison on her learning path is the sexy Niko, he's very mysterious and lovable, and does his best to show Madison the way things are done. We can't forget Mr Bond, her precious and adorable cat. I love that she's such an animal person. And this cute veterinarian, Dr Love. The name says it all, lol. I look forward to seeing what happens in the next installment. ^_^ With a creative storyline, fun and lovable characters, this story will have you captivated from start to finish. Come join Madison on her adventure to kick some evil butt!!!

~ 2 Fistful of Evil Stars ~  A Fistful of Evil is book one in the Madison Fox, Illuminant Enforcer series by Rebecca Chastain. I really wanted to like this urban fantasy novel. It was not bad, but not good either. It’s a little long and slow going throughout the novel. My main issue with this book is Madison our heroine. I like POV’s, but I could not stand Madison. I have never been in love with young 20 something heroines. They make silly mistakes and don’t seem to learn from them. I think she was supposed to be portrayed as fiery, spunky, and sassy, but she came off as a whiny immature hormonal teen with no brains. She has this great gift, but does nothing to learn about it, until she comes into contact with this guy, Kyle, when looking for a job. Does she ask questions? Nope? She believes everything Kyle says, but she does not know him and she believes him right off the bat. Next her boss and coworkers don’t tell her anything about her gift, Soul-Sight or Primordium, keeping her in the dark which causes her to go off and make mistakes over and over again. What she needs is some hand to hand training and someone to actually tell her how to use her gift and what evil is out their instead of letting her run around like an idiot and getting herself into trouble. How did all the other Illuminant Enforcers learn there skills? Last every time a good looking man walks into the room she goes off into la la land and hormonal over drive, which leads her to forget what she is doing, to ask questions, or look into the Primordium (as she was told to do). As for the bad demon. Well it's obvious who it is once they are introduced, but does Madison figure it out? Nope, she is to distracted in la la land to tape into her gift until she is in way over her head. I kept reading hoping to see if Madison would learn from her mistakes, ask questions, and give us more insight into the Primoridum, but nope it did not happen. Each page was her jumping into trouble and a hot guy sending her into hormonal teenage overdrive. A Fistful of Evil was not the book for me. If the blurb intrigues you, I urge you to give it a shot. Just because it did not work for me does not mean it won’t for you. * Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy free of charge from Rebecca Chastain with the sole purpose of an honest review.

This was a fun read! I'm from the area the story is set in but currently living across the country- the author did an excellent job of bringing me back home for a bit! (Although I promise Madison gets more open areas once you cross Hazel!) Good characters and the plot moved well. Can't wait for the next installment!

What an enjoyable book. It's a nice mix of action and humor. It left me wanting more.

I enjoyed this in the same way as I enjoy a good mystery by Sue Grafton or Karen Kijewski. After I got hooked, it was hard to put this book down. Now that I have finished, I kind of miss hanging out with Madison, the main character, and can't wait for the next book with her adventures. My favorite scene is where circumstances come together to find Madison reluctantly dressed as a super hero and wearing a holster with kittens in them. What an endearing image. I look forward to more by this author.
