Publisher's Summary

Ava is a firebug and she can start fires with her mind. However, she's caught in a deadly contract with the Coterie, a magical mafia. She's one of its main hitmen and she doesn't like it one bit. Especially because her mother's death was ordered by Venus and Ava's boss. When Venus asks Ava to kill a family friend, Ava rebels and flees.

What the critics say

" Firebug has it all - power-hungry villains, cool magic powers, foxy boys, and even vicious were-bunnies, all fueled by Lish McBride's signature non-stop wit. I love every moment spent in this oft-quirky, always spellbinding world, and can't wait to see what trouble Ava, Lock, and Ezra land themselves in next!" (Marissa Meyer, New York Times best-selling author of The Lunar Chronicles)
"Lish McBride's world of inventive dark magic and fantastic beings is not to be missed. By anyone. I'm telling you people, there are were-hares, a girl who flicks fire from her fingertips, and a were-fox with bouncy black feet (and an even cuter human body). If you want more than that, you want too much. Lish rocks." (Kendare Blake, author of Anna Dressed in Blood and Antigoddess)

Good book

The narrator did a good job, better than some. But I did have an issue telling some of the voices apart some times.

As far as the story goes, it was a good story and was entertaning . But was disappointed Lish McBride is a very talented author but Firebug is not her best and stands out as one of her lesser books.

As much as I love this author...

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I loved Lish McBride's necromancer books, but this one fell short for me. The narration was definitely working against a favorable rating. I would buy the next book if the narrator were different.

Would you be willing to try another one of Ali Ahn’s performances?

Definitely not. There was very little to differentiate between the characters in the performance and most of the time I felt like I was listening to Mr. and Mrs. Howell from Gilligan's Island. She did not make me like Ava, at all.
