Ruthless (Debt Collector #8)
by Susan Kaye Quinn

Blurb from Goodreads: Ruthless- EPISODE 8 of the Debt Collector serial
What’s your life worth on the open market?
A debt collector can tell you precisely.
With Elena’s help, Lirium attempts to slash into Candy’s files to get evidence about the conspiracy to transfer out kids.

Ruthless is approximately 14,000 words or 56 pages, and is the eighth of nine episodes in the first season of The Debt Collector serial. This dark and gritty future-noir is about a world where your life-worth is tabulated on the open market and going into debt risks a lot more than your credit rating. Contains mature content and themes. For young-adult-appropriate thrills, see Susan’s bestselling Mindjack series. For more about the Debt Collector serial, see

My review:
This episode is brilliant again. There is a lot we learn about the conspiracy and Elena. I liked the direction the story took, but there also are some sad parts. I really enjoyed this episode and finished it in one sitting. The last episode can’t get released fast enough for me. The suspense is terrible, I so want to know how it all ends and on the other hand am sad that the next episode will be the last.

These last few months I really started to love this serial and these characters and I can’t believe this season is almost over. Lirium is such a awesome character and I liked getting to know Elena more, she really is more than she seemd at first.

This episode gives some world building into how depth collectors developed (not sure that’s the right word for it). I would love to get to know more about the first period that debt collectors started showing up and how the world reacted.

To conclude: another great episode and I can’t wait to read the last episode. I love this serial and the characters and I hope there will be a happy ending.
