    I want to thank the author for continuing to provide me with episodes of this most awesome serial to read and give an honest review. Receiving this for free has in no way altered my opinion or review. This one was, well, short. Not to say I didn't like it, but I felt like I needed more and then I turn the page and WHAM it's over. And I was SAD! And I was itching to get to the next episode because I know it's going to be the most fantastic conclusion ever!

And I was SAD! And I was itching to get to the next episode because I know it's going to be the most fantastic conclusion ever! If you haven't read any of the previous episodes in this serial, you might want to stop here so you can avoid spoilers. And if you haven't read any of the previous episodes, what are you waiting for? GO NOW! This episode picks up right where the other one left off. Zachariel, Wyatt and Alexa are on their way to flush out INtense and get him to stop the trick. They have a plan in place, three to be exact. That way if one doesn't work out, then they can try and institute one of the others. But as usual, things don't go quite as planned. They end up in yet another compromising position, one I can truly say I didn't see coming. And then Quinn just ends it, teasing me to no end! The one things I love about this episode is Wyatt and Alexa's interactions. I was a bit surprised by Wyatt, to be honest, and I kind of like it. I'm not sure where Quinn is going with things along the lines of Zachariel and Wyatt and Alexa, but I'm totally intrigued. At the same time, I can see how Alexa is almost torn between these two men in her life and what each can give her. Anxiously awaiting the conclusion Sue. GIVE IT TO ME NOW!

    Why, Susan Kay Quinn, do you torture me so? This episode threw Wraith right back into the fire. And us with her. There is only one episode left after this one and I both love and hate that I have no idea how it's all going to work out.

I almost wish I'd waited until closer to the release of the final episode so I wouldn't be all tied up in knots, waiting to see what happens for the next week, but then again, I couldn't wait! I think SKQ is possibly a little bit evil. But still amazing. Now if she could just make time warp ahead so I could read the next one... I'd be able to forgive her for the torture.

    I received a copy in exchange for an honest review Corruption is one of the shortest episode in this season and I am pretty sure the last episode will make up for that. This episode on itself isn't that interesting, it's a chain to link to the last episode. It was a fun episode, but it only emphasizes the fact that there will be another episode and I am grumbling about having to wait for that one as I want it now. There isn't much to say about this episode that I haven't said earlier and as it's I received a copy in exchange for an honest review Corruption is one of the shortest episode in this season and I am pretty sure the last episode will make up for that.

There isn't much to say about this episode that I haven't said earlier and as it's pretty short there isn't that much that happens. There's a twist at the end of the episode that I didn't expect, but I wasn't too surprised either. I had fun reading the interactions between Wyatt and Wraith, Wyatt has only played a small part so far, so it's fun to see a bit more of him. I am pretty sure I agree with Zachariel that Wyatt is in love with Wraith. I am also thinking it feels a tiny bit like a love triangle, as I have no clue with whom Wraith will end up in the end, with Zachariel or Wyatt. And to be honest I would be okay with either one. This series isn't really about the romance though, so while it is present it isn't at the foreground. And even with all the tension goign on the character stay focussed on their mission, stopping Gehena, which I appreciated. Although to be honest I also would be okay with a little bit more romance ;). To conclude: this was a short episode, leading up to the last episode. There's isn't much that happens in this episode, some fun interactions, a twist at the end and a sort of love triangle, although the focus isn't on it. The focus is on the story and how they are going to stop Gehena. I can't wait to read the last episode to find out how this season ends!

    All I can say is GAH!!! Susan really knows how to amp up the tension in this series. Every time you think you know what's going to happen, something comes out of left field and catches you off guard. With only one more episode to go things are coming to a head, which makes for lots of fun reading.

Every time you think you know what's going to happen, something comes out of left field and catches you off guard. With only one more episode to go things are coming to a head, which makes for lots of fun reading. We learn in this episode that the best laid plans made with the best of intentions are meaningless if you are at the mercy of others. Left without any other option, Wraith and company have to execute a risky plan, one that may or may not help them win the fight against Gehenna. This plan has surprising results and now at a time when failure is not an option, the team is in the for biggest fight yet. This episode is a fairly quick read with a killer cliffhanger at the end that leads us to what I anticipate will be an epic conclusion to season two (anyone remember all the wacky crazy fun from Episode 9?) Do yourself a favor and make sure you are up to date on Episodes 1-16 of the Debt Collector series so that you get the most out of this story. Then stay tuned for the conclusion in Episode 18: Atonement. I can't wait to read it and neither will you!

Our crew of co-protagonists, Zach, Wyatt, and Alex/Wraith have a trilogy of options to stop the criminal slaughter of thousands of people via a computer hack that makes these folks appear to be subject to legal debt collection.

Five stars for the idea, two stars for the episode meaning it was OK. This episode is predictable to some degree. I do admit I missed my guess about Zach's number one option and hadn't thought that the third option would fail as quickly as my initial guess at what was next. You'll have to read the episode which isn't really a bad thing. Since it is episode 17 of 18, I must leave you knowing that this is where all stories peak in excitement and the next episode must reach the conclusion of the story, for us to see if good or evil prevails. Click on read more or the spoiler link for the entire Cliff Notes spoiler extension to this review. (view spoiler)[Moloch's criminal organization, Gehenna, is a pro-debt-collector enterprise that plans to make select debt collectors "Gods" with eternal life. I suspect the remaining army of debt collectors shall become royalty with long life or become slaves also - herding sheeple into debt collection slaughter houses so Moloch and his Gehenna collection of thugs might become the Pharaoh Gods dictating where all life energy shall be distributed. Zach's FBI contact immediately falls apart in the hero's efforts to thwart the evil plan. The FBI appear to be either corrupt or complicit. Either way they aren't going to ride in on white horses and save the day. This destroys their best hope and also destroys their fall-back "plan C" as well. Plan C had been Witness Protection. It would likely be meaningless if Moloch's plans succeed. So they have only option two remaining. Option two is Wyatt gaining access to the original hacker, "inTense". Once they are with him, Zach and Wraith plan to use the stick and carrot strategy to convince him to undo his evil hacking. For a bribe of life energy "inTense" moved thousands of innocent folks into the poverty rolls on the government debt collection computers that will result in an army of debt collectors suddenly committing mass murder illegally collecting life energy. To double our hero's troubles, "inTense" has made it appear like a terror attack by the beloved "Lifetime" organization started by Alex's father. Having been an executive assistant to powerful folks for years, Wyatt has become eligible bachelor number one in many circles. Wyatt uses his good looks and sexual desirability to gain access to the super hacker "inTense". All goes well except "inTense" managed to secretly alert Moloch of his hostile visitors before they ever use the stick on him. "InTense does get some stick and carrot treatment, enough to get him working on the fix. As our criminal "slasher" is working under the careful observation of undercover FBI debt collector Zach, our beloved Gehenna monsters Seth and Moloch arrive, guns drawn. We leave this episode with death assured for at least Wraith. Odds are Zach will get to be tortured to death a second time as well. Wyatt's death has been pronounced but is more likely undetermined. (hide spoiler)] The Gehenna villainy reminds me of identity theft, but as soon as your assets are stolen, the soul sucking debt collector is knocking at your door, even before you even get a "Lifelock" alert that you're on the government's death list. Boy, that really hikes up the meaning of "life's not fair". Interested? Pick up The Debt Collector: Wraith. Season 2.

    In this episode of Debt Collector (season two) we finally get the idea just how far people are willing to go to ensure life energy trading continues unchecked. Government conspiracy? Yup. Callous human disregard? Yup. Innocents sacrificed? Yup. Debt collectors executed? It's only a matter of time and place. Alexa, Wyatt and Zachariel travel to meet the one man capable of saving ten thousand innocent lives from debt collection. InTense is the slasher (hacker) who put them in jeopardy, after all, and A In this episode of Debt Collector (season two) we finally get the idea just how far people are willing to go to ensure life energy trading continues unchecked. Government conspiracy? Yup. Callous human disregard? Yup. Innocents sacrificed? Yup. Debt collectors executed? It's only a matter of time and place. Alexa, Wyatt and Zachariel travel to meet the one man capable of saving ten thousand innocent lives from debt collection. InTense is the slasher (hacker) who put them in jeopardy, after all, and Alexa's sure that with a little push she can convince him to undo his damage. And, she may have succeeded. Thing is, the kind of person who can--and does--hack government files to "game the system" and target thousands for destruction should probably NOT be the same man upon whom you pin your salvation hopes. That level of mercenary activity leaves precious little negotiating room, no matter how enticing the offer. As Moloch, and his Gehenna cohorts, close the distance on Alexa and Zachariel, it's clear that inTense is the last person on Earth who'd assist--and the government is complicit in this plan, as well. While it looks bleak, I'm fair certain a bit of debt collector double-cross will turn enemies to allies--at least I HOPE so! While short, this episode sets up the final showdown for Alexa and Zachariel against Moloch and the Gehenna zealots. Cannot wait for the end! I received a copy of this book from the author; this is my honest review.

    Whew! This is getting pretty intense! And just when I think I've figured out what's going on and that things might be coming to an end, something else happens that makes me gasp! There is only one episode left in this season and I can't even begin to imagine how this is all going to end.

There is only one episode left in this season and I can't even begin to imagine how this is all going to end. 'The only thing that's different - the thing that I understand far better than my father ever could - is that if you're going to fight something this evil, this monstrous, that sometimes you're going to have to get down in the muck to do it.' Wraith, Zachariel, and Wyatt have a plan. But things continually don't go according to plans. There's one road block after another. I'm not sure they are ever going to get a break and save the lives that are going to be destroyed. 'I'm saying it takes debt collectors to understand how to beat debt collectors. And that this ability we have to transfer life energy ... it's not inherently evil. It's the people who are evil, not the thing itself. There's a way to use it for good, if by no other means than simply stopping those who are using it for evil. And I'm determined to make that happen.' Good luck with that, Wraith!

    Wraith, Zachariel, and Wyatt, in small spaces together- planes, cabs, shops, and offices. The dynamic between the three of them continues to change in interesting ways. Part of the story reminded me of the tv show "Burn Notice". At other times it reminded me of "The Shield". The extent of corruption seems to know no bounds. Of course, what Slasher work wouldn't bring back Moloch and Seth? Ishtar wasn't involved this time, at least not that we are aware of.

Perhaps she will be the only one of the three with any redeeming qualities. This episode seemed shorter, and sets the stage for what is sure to be an intense, gripping, crazy conclusion.
