Book Details

This much-anticipated sequel to Lish McBride's highly praised young adult novel Firebug features a girl who can start fires with her mind, the dangerous magical mafia she's involved with, and a mysterious illness that affects magical beings.

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.

Praise for Pyromantic:

"Giant snails, terrified kelpies, and supernatural knitting: this is life for the teenagers running supernatural law enforcement in small-town Maine. . . . With the help of humans, were-hares, and an adorable Doctor Who fangirl, they fight a plague that threatens them all. Brief cameos feature the characters of Hold Me Closer, Necromancer (2010). Gruesome, snarky high jinks, with just the right amount of feels." —Kirkus Reviews

"Book two in the Firebug series once again features our courageous fire-starter Ava and all the surrounding mishaps that come with being involved with dark magic. The budding romance between Ava and Lock is a nice distraction amidst illness, danger and several plot twists . . . . Readers will love the author’s wild imagination." —Romantic Times Book Review

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 nonstop wit. I love every moment spent in this oft-quirky, always spellbinding world.” —Marissa Meyer, New York Times-bestselling author of the Lunar Chronicles

"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

"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
