Book Review: A Fistful of Evil (Rebecca Chastain)

A Fistful of Evil
By: Rebecca Chastain
Genres: Urban Fantasy, Supernatural,
 Fantasy, Humor, Action, Suspense

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.


I clicked on A Fistful of Evil, not even knowing that it was sent in via review request....boy, was I ever surprised.

While we were originally asked to review A Fistful of Fire, but this one is the first book in the series, so we've gotta review this one first.

The author creates such a unique and intricate world surrounding her amazing characters. I honestly think it's brilliant because the main character, Madison, goes into this new world with as much understanding of it as us. So, throughout the story, you're learning things that not even Madison knew. More than once, she asked a question that I was wanting an answer for.

Although the world the author creates is intricate, she describes it in such a way that I never once had to stop and say "Whoa, what does that look like?", I always had a clear image of what was being described, which is part of the reason that I genuinely enjoyed this book.

Not only are her descriptive skills up to par, her characters are all....well...just AMAZING! Madison is just someone that I could honestly see myself being friends with. She's very easy to connect with, even though we have very little in common. All of the other characters the author threw into the mix were just as amazing as Madison...I mean....Helloooo Nikooo..!! I really hope that she ends up with Niko, I don't know why, but I love him more than Dr. Love. Hah 'love him more than Dr. Love'..... I picture Niko as Shemar Moore? Am I wrong? Does that give you an idea as to his hotness level? I sure hope so, because both of their hotness levels can be compared to an inferno. I'm not even being dramatic.

It's definitely one of those books that you sit down to read and then it's suddenly two in the morning and you're greedily downloading the sample for book me, I speak from experience. It for sure pulls you in right from the start. My mom probably thought I was crazy...I mean, A Fistful of Evil had me laughing like crazy.

A Fistful of Evil is for sure going on the top of  my "Fantasy Favorites" list that exists only in my head.

I honestly would and WILL tell my two point five friends to read this over and over until they actually read it and we can talk about it. I definitely need a gossip buddy for this book...

So now, here I am, eagerly waiting for the author to reply to my email and, hopefully, send A Fistful of Fire....Gah, if only we had KindleUnlimited still! Why, oh whyyy is the world such a cruel place!? What have I done to deserve this?! I only have a few more pages in the sample....send help...

As usual, you can see the links at the end of this post!
A little treat for you (and myself, if I'm being totally honest) will be below.. ;)

Keep your noses in the pages and I'll blog you later, my lovelies!!
Purchase this book through
(free if you have KindleUnlimited!!)

Stalk the author:

Poor Madison......She doesn't stand a chance...

  1. Shemar Moore definitely could play the part of Niko! Thank you for the great review. I hope you love A Fistful of Fire just as much!
