Hardcover

Ava is having a rough time. Getting rid of Venus didn't set her free—she's still Coterie. Her new boss seems like an improvement, but who knows if he'll stay that way? The Coterie life changes people. And since Ava's currently avoiding her friends after (disastrously) turning down a date with Lock, well, everything kind of sucks. And that's not even taking into account the feelings she might have for him.

But when a mysterious illness starts to affect magical beings, it's up to Ava and her team to stop its spread . . . or else one of them might be next.

SOME THINGS MEND MORE EASILY THAN OTHERS


 


FIREBUGS ARE CREATURES of flames and heat, sibling to the phoenix and dragon. Not genetically, but in spirit. So why was it that...

Reviews

Praise for Pyromantic

Praise for Firebug:

“Ava . . . [is] a refreshing change from the endless parade of naïve heroines found elsewhere.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review

Firebug has it all . . . fueled by Lish McBride's signature non-stop wit. I love every moment spent in this oft-quirky, always spellbinding world.” —Marissa Meyer, author of the Lunar Chronicles

“Lish McBride's world of inventive dark magic and fantastic beings is not to be missed. By anyone.” —Kendare Blake, author of Anna Dressed in Blood and Antigoddess

“The first in what promises to be another popular series, McBride draws upon her talent of spinning entertaining and suspenseful tales that are fresh, fun, and very droll.” —Booklist

“Readers looking for a fast-paced narrative will undoubtedly be satisfied with the rollicking plot and its riffs on the classic formula of rebels on the lam.” —School Library Journal
