From bestselling indie author Laura Thalassa comes the newly revised and edited first book in her smash-hit dark fantasy romance between a siren and the “bargainer” she owes countless favors to.
Callypso Lillis is a siren with a very big problem, one that stretches up her arm and far into her past.
For the last seven years Callie has been wearing a bracelet of black beads up her wrist, magical IOUs for favors she once received. Only death or repayment will fulfill her obligations.
Everyone knows that if you need a favor, you go to the Bargainer to make it happen. He’s a man who can get you anything you want … at a price. And everyone knows that sooner or later he always collects. But for Callie, he’s never asked for repayment. Not until now.
When Callie finds the Bargainer in her room, a grin on his lips and a twinkle in his eye, she knows things are about to change. At first it’s admitting a truth—a single bead’s worth—acknowledging the attraction between them. But the Bargainer is after more than just rekindling their connection. Something is happening in the Otherworld. Fae warriors are going missing one by one, and only the women are returned, each in a glass casket, a child clutched to her breast.
For the Bargainer to save his people, he’ll need the help of the siren he spurned long ago. If she can forgive him.
Can’t wait for the sequel
I loved it pretty quickly and cannot wait to buy the next book!
This book made my heart sing. Desmond Flynn is no Angel and Callipso is no virginal saint. Yet, they are perfect. Their story just has that “J’est ne ces que” where you can not get enough of them, the story, or what’s next. Laura’s writing is amazing and she is at her apex with this story. It was so good that even though I had the entire trilogy that I had bought (at m own expense ,thank you very much) I reread this directly after finishing it because I could not believe that the 2nd book would be as good as this one so I wanted to feel all the emotions again before I ventured into the next phase. (P.S. it was)
Couldn’t finish it
I couldn’t get past the love that didn’t make sense and the writing style wasn’t for me. I wish I hadn’t paid for it but I’m sure some will like it.
