They call it Deadtown: the city’s quarantined section for its inhuman and undead residents. Most humans stay far from its borders—but Victory Vaughn, Boston’s only professional demon slayer, isn’t exactly human…

When Vicky allowed an ancient goddess to possess her, she had no regrets—it was the only way to protect the people she loved. But now Ceridwen, locked in a power struggle with the Hellion that long ago claimed Vicky with its mark, refuses to leave. Both beings believe controlling Vicky is the key to winning the coming war for the human realm.

Despite the forces pulling her apart, Vicky needs all her wits about her. The demons of Hell are growing bold and she can barely keep up with the attacks plaguing the city: sirens in the Mystic River, goblins snarling traffic on Storrow Drive, imps tearing the gold from the State House dome. As the signs of war multiply and Hell threatens to overrun its boundaries, Vicky finds herself torn between her duty to save the world and her desire to save something of herself…
Firestorm (Deadtown, #6)Firestorm by Nancy Holzner

Vicky is possessed by an ancient goddess and a demon has marked her and is attempting to take control as well. Vicky thinks she has it all under control, but you just know something is seriously going to go wrong with all her well laid plans.

Demons are breaking through all over the place and it all comes down to Vicky, her wits, her strengths and her ability to work with what you got on hand.

Things are really heating up for Vicky and not in a good way. All hell is breaking loose and its about to get really real!

Talk about action intense, FIRESTORM, seems to be chock full of conflict, inside and out. I have to admit I enjoyed her external conflicts/ battles a lot more than the internal switches with the demon and goddess. I was invested in the telling but found the internal struggles a little distracting.

Holzner gives you closure in FIRESTORM's plot but leaves just enough open making you want more.

I received this ARC copy of Firestorm from Berkley Publishing Group - InterMix. This is my honest and voluntary review. Firestorm is set for publication May 16, 2017.
