Published March 20th 2013

Delirium - Episode 1 of the nine-part, first season of the Debt Collector serial. Season One is complete. Season Two coming soon!

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.

My thoughts about Delirium ~~

OMG! This series is amazing! This post is a review of Delirium (Debt Collector #1) but since I have read the whole first season as well as listened to it too, it may be a little difficult to just talk about book #1.

I have to say that episode one was unbelievable and I was hooked from the very first chapter. Lirium is a collector of life energy and has orders to pass that energy on to those who are going to make a difference in this world. He does get to keep a percentage of that life energy for himself but he doesn't have the freedom to pass it on to anyone other than those select few who he is directed to transfer to.

But wait, what would happen if he did decide to give some of that energy to someone other than the high potentials? How would anyone know? And what could they do to him anyway? This life he leads isn't really the most glamorous life as it is. Can it get any worse?

Lirium really is a nice guy, and he is just doing what he has to do to survive. Nobody wants to be a debt collector, but hey, someone has to do it. Might as well be him as anyone else.

The whole idea of a bunch of debt collectors out there, collecting life energy and passing it on, sort of just blows my mind. This whole series takes a great imagination that I am totally in awe of. I guess that is why I am not a writer, but just a reader who gets to enjoy these words.

This first season was so captivating and I enjoyed both reading it and listening to it. I can't wait to get started on season 2, being released soon.

Delirium is always FREE!!
Get it and start reading Season 1!

Season 2 is coming soon!!

Susan Kaye Quinn grew up in California, where she wrote snippets of stories and passed them to her friends during class. Her teachers pretended not to notice and only confiscated her stories a couple times.

Susan left writing behind to pursue a bunch of engineering degrees, but she was drawn back to writing by an irresistible urge to share her stories with her niece, her kids, and all the wonderful friends she’s met along the way.

She doesn’t have to sneak her notes anymore, which is too bad.

Susan writes from the Chicago suburbs with her three boys, two cats, and one husband. Which, it turns out, is exactly as a much as she can handle.
