Description


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 hitmen . . . and she doesn't like it one bit. Not least because her boss, Venus, killed Ava's mother.
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, in Lish McBride's Firebug.

About the Author


Lish McBride is an author, bookseller, and all-around ne'er-do-well living in the Seattle area. She has an MFA from the University of New Orleans, which she is sure they'd like to take back. The poor people stuck with her include her long-suffering Man Friend, her son, and her furry legion, which number many. (Well, three.) When she isn't working, which is most of the time, and reading, which is the rest of the time, you can probably find her whining on Twitter about how she needs a nap.

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
