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 she's been collecting a bracelet of black beads up her wrist, magical IOUs for favors she's received. Only death or repayment will fulfill the obligations. Only then will the beads disappear. 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 one of his clients, he's never asked for repayment. Not until now. When Callie finds the fae king of the night 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 just a chaste kiss-a single bead's worth-and a promise for more. For the Bargainer, it's more than just a matter of rekindling an old romance. Something is happening in the Otherworld. Fae warriors are going missing one by one. Only the women are returned, each in a glass casket, a child clutched to their breast. And then there are the whispers among the slaves, whispers of an evil that's been awoken. If the Bargainer has any hope to save his people, he'll need the help of the siren he spurned long ago. Only, his foe has a taste for exotic creatures, and Callie just happens to be one.… (més)

I ended up liking this much more than I thought I would.
The book starts off very cliche for the genre, with a tough-but-soft woman who just happens to have a supernatural ability and uses it in her career as a private PI. She has a token black best friend (whose dialogue feels more than a bit racist) and is dating a werewolf who is also in (supernatural) law enforcement.
When I first added the book my to-read list, I don't think I realised that it was more in the romance genre than general fantasy (and it's definitely not YA though was in a 'similar to' rec of one). There is a fair bit of graphic sex (including a vagina being referred to as her "core" several times) and curse words but the story itself was actually very interesting and I ended up really liking a few of the characters. The writing feels very fanfiction-y and I found a few misspellings or words missing in my copy, so I'm not sure how well-edited this is or if I ended up with an ARC and the final product is a bit different.
Overall, I ended up really entertained by it. If you like dark fantasy with a side of adult situations, check out this series. ( )

Unfortunately this heroine is a bit slow. If there is something that could possibly get by her, it definitely will. It cut into my potential enjoyment of her character. The scenario was entertaining though and I was generally willing to go along with it. ( )

I love this story.

I like paranormal romances, but they are usually either insta-love or love after captivity. What I love about this book is that we get neither. Callypso and The Bargainer know each other, they spent a lot of time together and she fell for him over time.
Callie is also a victim, she has an awful past, one he never tries to take advantage of. I think what I really love about this story is that it doesn't have a single thing where I stop and go "this is isn't right" or "this wouldn't be right if it happened in real life".
Aside from the romance, which is really sweet, I also like the mystery. Women are being abducted and brought back in coffins, they are in a coma like state, and they have a child with them. ¿Who's taking them? ¿What's going on with the children?
All in all, I super recommend this book, it's probably my favorite of this author. It's based on consent, and that's something I really treasure. ( )
