Ava is a firebug - she can start fires with her mind. Which would all be well and good if she weren't caught in a deadly contract with the Coterie, a magical mafia. She's one of their main hit men ...and she doesn't like it one bit. Not least because her mother's death was ordered by Venus - who is now her boss. When Venus asks Ava to kill a family friend, Ava rebels. She knows very well that you can't say no to the Coterie and expect to get away with it, though, so she and her friends hit the road, trying desperately to think of a way out of the mess they find themselves in. Preferably keeping the murder to a minimum.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Praise for "Hold Me Closer, Necromancer"

A Morris Award finalist

YALSA Top Ten Best Fiction for Young Adults

* "With fine writing, tight plotting, a unique and uniquely odd cast of teens, adults, and children, and a pace that smashes through any curtain of disbelief, this sardonic and outrageous story's only problem is that it must, like all good things, come to an end." --"Booklist", starred review

"[A] scary and irreverent romp." --"Publishers Weekly"

"This quirky urban fantasy will compel fans of horror and supernatural romance--and heroic skateboarding slackers." --"Kirkus Reviews"

"Sam is the ultimate laid-back slacker who also happens to be smart, funny, sweet, and adorable. Every character in this book seems to live in the moment, offering sarcastic humor that lightens up the intense action and dark suspense. "Hold Me Closer, Necromancer" is entertaining, offbeat, hilarious, and flat-out fun. We loved it." --"Justine Magazine"


Praise for "Firebug"

"McBride's follow-up to the popular "Hold Me Closer Necromancer" series maintains her trademark dark humor and engaging, quippy characters. The book exists in the same universe, and possesses the same feeling of incredibly high stakes from the beginning." - "School Library Journal"

*"Deeply enmeshed with a magical world and its impossible choices before readers ever meet her, Ava and her wholly believable despair are a refreshing change from the endless parade of naive heroines found elsewhere." - "Kirkus Reviews", STARRED REVIEW
