Indie-Mas is my annual recap of all the great independently-published books I read in the previous year. I like to take this time to share the love–both by helping promote great indie books and giving them away! So without further ado…
On the second day of Indie-Mas, my author gave to me:
Okay, so that’s like one piece of this series, and it doesn’t happen until the third or forth book, and there’s more to love than just that.
The Miss Misery series is a fun urban fantasy series (5 books) about a girl who survives by sucking on the misery of others. In this world, demons consume human emotions to sustain themselves – satyrs on lust, furies on rage, silphs on vanity, and goblins on greed. It’s a fine line between what’s legal and what’s not, and there’s an elite group of people who are put in charge to stop it – and they kicked Jessica out when she was eighteen because she was defective.
God knows I love me a brooding, damaged broad with a razor-sharp wit and abandonment issues for days. This series had me one-clicking the next one and the next one and the next one until it was 2am and I HAD TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS.
I also really appreciated the slow, careful way the polyamorous relationship was added in. No jealous lovers here–I loved how Lucen was actively cheerleading Jess to get it on with Devon.
All-in-all, this was a wonderful, wonderful series and one that I’ve got on my reread list.
