The Debt Collector Episodes 1-3, By Susan Kaye Quinn


EPISODES 1-3 (Delirium, Agony, Ecstasy) of the Debt Collector serial. Contains mature content and themes. For young-adult-appropriate thrills, see Susan’s bestselling Mindjack series.What’s your life worth on the open market?
A debt collector can tell you precisely.

Lirium plays the part of the grim reaper well, with his dark trenchcoat, jackboots, and the black marks on his soul that every debt collector carries. He’s just in it for his cut, the ten percent of the life energy he collects before he transfers it on to the high potentials, the people who will make the world a better place with their brains, their work, and their lives. That hit of life energy, a bottle of vodka, and a visit from one of Madam Anastazja’s sex workers keep him alive, stable, and mostly sane… until he collects again. But when his recovery ritual is disrupted by a sex worker who isn’t what she seems, he has to choose between doing an illegal hit for a girl whose story has more holes than his soul or facing the bottle alone–a dark pit he’s not sure he’ll be able to climb out of again.

The first three episodes of the Debt Collector serial are collectively the length of a short novel, or 152 pages.
These are the first three of nine episodes in the first season of The Debt Collector serial. This dark and gritty future-noir is about a world where your life-worth is tabulated on the open market and going into debt risks a lot more than your credit rating.

                I was lucky to be approved on NetGalley to review The Debt Collector Vol 1 books.  Now while these books were not at all what I had first thought they would be.  They were even better than I thought would be possible.
                Although I read paranormal books, I have never been big on the Sci-Fi type books, which this book I would classify as that type.  In a future where people’s debts are paid with their lives, it was interesting to learn how that process was completed.
                Lirium’s character was amazingly well written, even down to the clothes that he wore and the state of his apartment.  Being able to watch the life that he was living, and the turns that Susan included in this story, it doesn’t seem as though you are reading novellas.  She has the ability to write to the extent that it leaves you wanting to know more and more to the story.
                The other characters in the book, no matter how minor the role was, Susan used enough details that you could completely understand what was going on with them.  What they looked like, the type of person that they came off as. Everything.
                After reading these three books, I can’t wait to read more from the author, and her books are definitely going on my TBR list!
This book is currently $1.99 US Dollars on Amazon.
