Misery died so she could save the world.
That’s what they told her.
Turns out they lied.
She was once a holy warrior with a noble cause. Now she’s using her earth magic to scrape by, meal to meal, motel to motel, city to city, one step ahead of those who call her traitor. Her jobs aren’t glamorous, but in the end, beggars can’t be choosers and work pays the bills.
Denver was supposed to be just one more stop over. But between an overly enthusiastic roommate, a gorgeous healer, and a challenging – not to mention lucrative – job for the Chimera Lord of Denver, Misery isn’t finding it easy to leave.
When she discovers the lesser fae are going missing, Misery finds a new cause, a paycheck and many reasons to stay. She just hopes pursuing them won’t get her killed…again.

I found this book intriguing from page one. Misery is such an interesting, complex character. She is an earth essence worker, and the way she manipulates and works with the earth is fascinating. She moves from city to city, living on the run. She is trying to survive, but remains a very genuine person with a good heart.
The story was told very well. The world, the conflict, and Misery’s life were like a great big puzzle that I kept finding pieces for. I wanted to keep reading and see how the puzzle would come together. There is still so much I want to know! The story does continue in the next book, but there was a good ending point in this one. I always appreciate that. But I will be very happy when the next book is released!
I really enjoyed this book! This is going to be a great series!!
