The Collector
(Dante Walker, #1)

He makes good girls...bad.

Dante Walker is flippin’ awesome, and he knows it. His good looks, killer charm, and stellar confidence have made him one of hell’s best—a soul collector. His job is simple: weed through humanity and label those round rears with a big red good or bad stamp. Old Saint Nick gets the good guys, and he gets the fun ones. Bag-and-tag.

Sealing souls is nothing personal. Dante’s an equal-opportunity collector and doesn't want it any other way. But he’ll have to adjust, because Boss Man has given him a new assignment:
 

Collect Charlie Cooper’s soul within ten days.

Dante doesn't know why Boss Man wants Charlie, nor does he care. This assignment means only one thing to him, and that’s a permanent ticket out of hell. But after Dante meets the quirky Nerd Alert chick he’s come to collect, he realizes this assignment will test his abilities as a collector…and uncover emotions deeply buried

Vengeance Bound

The Goddess Test meets Dexter in an edgy, compelling debut about one teen’s quest for revenge… no matter how far it takes her. 

Cory Graff is not alone in her head. Bound to a deal of desperation made when she was a child, Cory’s mind houses the Furies—the hawk and the serpent—lingering always, waiting for her to satisfy their bloodlust. After escaping the asylum where she was trapped for years, Cory knows how to keep the Furies quiet. By day, she lives a normal life, but by night, she tracks down targets the Furies send her way. And she brings down Justice upon them.

Cory’s perfected her system of survival, but when she meets a mysterious boy named Niko at her new school, she can’t figure out how she feels about him. For the first time, the Furies are quiet in her head around a guy. But does this mean that Cory’s finally found someone who she can trust, or are there greater factors at work? As Cory’s mind becomes a battlefield, with the Furies fighting for control, Cory will have to put everything on the line to hold on to what she’s worked so hard to build

    1. Hahahaha it is funny, because I got finally convinced about it yesterday! I've seen it around for months of course, but the review of The Collector by a fellow blogger that I read yesterday, made me want to read it :) He said it's a hilarious read, with great characters, both main & secondary, so now I am excited about it :) and that's what I'm wondering, too, especially because I rarely swoon :D

      Thanks for stopping by, Beth!

  9. I read an ARC of The Collector and it is different then any other book out there, I really liked Dante's voice and that fact that we have the same vocabulary (not sure if this is a good or bad thing lol!) Hope you enjoy!

    MY Wow

  11. I'm intrigued by The Collector. It's one of those that I know I'll either love or hate, and I'm kind of dying to find out which it is!
