Firebug by Lish McBride

Ava has the ability to start fires with her mind.  For years she and her mother were on the run but their luck finally ran out when her mother was killed by the Coterie, a mafia-like group that uses those with powers for their own ends.  Now Ava grudgingly works for the Coterie and its leader Venus with her two best friends.  But when Venus assigns her the job of killing someone she knows Ava has to go rogue and find a way to bring down the Coterie, preferably without being killed herself. 

I really loved McBride's Hold Me Closer Necromancer so I had high expectations for this one.  As usually happens, this was then a letdown.  That most likely doesn't mean it was bad, it just didn't delight me as much as the previous title.
