Wicked Misery (Miss Misery #1)
Author: Tracey Martin
Genre: Fantasy/Urban Fantasy
Release Date: October 8, 2013


It's all quasi-legal fun until somebody gets framed for murder.

Jessica Moore thrives on misery. Literally. Thanks to a goblin's curse, she gets a magical high from humanity's suffering. A shameful talent like that could bury a girl in guilt, so to atone, she uses her dark power to hunt murderers, rapists and other scumbags until one of them frames her for his crimes.

In desperation, Jessica seeks refuge with the one person she trusts to not turn her in a satyr named Lucen. Like every member of his race, Lucen uses his lusty magic to control Boston's human population, and Jessica isn't immune to his power. But the murder victims belonged to a rival race, and when they discover Lucen is harboring Jessica, dodging the cops becomes the least of her problems.

With only five days to find the real killer, Jessica faces a danger far more serious than the brewing magical war. The danger of succumbing to Lucen's molten seduction.

Warning: Contains a heroine with a lust for misery, creepy murders, and creepier goblins, satyrs so hot you'd sell your soul for one, and scaly sewer rats masquerading as dragons. Who said magic was all sparkles and tiaras?

Wicked Misery is the first book in a fantastic new urban fantasy series that follows leading lady Jessica Moore - who has the unfortunate curse of having to feed off of other people's misery. She's not proud of this ability, so to make up for it she only feeds off of bad guys - murderers, rapists, etc. That is - until one of them tries to frame her for a crime they committed. With nowhere to turn, Jessica turns to her friend Lucen - a satyr who uses magic to keep Boston's human population under control. His sexy powers aren't lost on Jessica though - but that doesn't really matter when you have cops and another race of fantastical beings on your tail for something you didn't do. Will Jessica and Lucen be able to find the real killer before her time runs out and a magical war begins?

This was a fantastic start to what promises to be an exciting and fun urban fantasy series. I loved getting to know the characters - especially Jessica. She's one badass heroine for the series - smart, witty, strong, tends to feed off of misery, and dabbles with magic beings. She's a great main character for the series and I can't wait to see where she'll go in the next book. I really liked the character of Lucen too. The idea of a satyr living amongst the humans in Boston and controlling them with his magical powers of seduction was both hilarious and kind of scandalous at the same time. There were definitely some steamy scenes in the book with him and it made you forget that he's actually half-goat. The plot was really fun and exciting with lots of twists and turns along with mystery, thrills, action, and romance. There's a bit of something for everyone in the book, so it will definitely appeal to fans of a variety of genres. I loved getting to know and learn about all the fantastical beings living behind the scenes of our world and how they operated, along with their histories and backgrounds. There were so many cool things to learn about that I hope the author gives us more in the next installment. The writing was fast paced with a great flow that had me eagerly turning the pages to see what was going to happen next. This is definitely a book and a series that fans of urban fantasy will want to get their hands on - and I highly recommend it to fans of other genres as well! It won't disappoint!
Earning a doctorate in psychology convinced Tracey Martin that imaginary people were way more fun than real ones. Plus, they make better minions. From this revelation an obsession was born, and she’s been writing stories of kick-ass girls and women (and the guys who deserve them) ever since.
She loves fantasy and SF, likes her music epic, and prefers her movies to contain explosions. A city girl at heart, she doesn’t understand how she and her husband ended up living in New Hampshire, but she’s vowed to escape one day. Until then, writing keeps her off the mean, small town streets.
