Misery's Way by JC Daniels



Misery's Way is a short story associated with the larger world of Kit Colbana. In this story, we meet Frankie, who is some kind of SOMETHING that we are never actually told about. What we do know is she is a faith-healer. But when she heals, she takes the pain from that person and feeds on it. She meets Kit and Justin who have tracked her down for an unknown reason. Frankie 'heals' her and now Kit owes her a favor. But in the process, Kits pain is so deep that Frankie wants to rid the world of the person who caused her that pain

That's basically the entire short story.

There are no details. What I gave you is all there is.

I can't say that I'm all that interested in Frankie. There was nothing in this short story that made me want to know more about her. If anything, I was super interested in her sidekick ... A scarred man whose name escapes me. His loyalty to her is unparalleled.

There is a bonus story ... About Kit ... That is miles better than the one that's marketed on the cover and as the feature.

I have to say that Im a little disappointed. The cover is so kick ass that I just KNEW I would finally get an AA heroine worth my time. Didn't happen. Frankie came across as a person made of steel. The personality was just ... as expected.

I don't know. It's a short story so it goes somewhere else in that world. I would read the series but not for Frankie. Id read it for Kit if I felt so inclined, but Im not as of yet. Maybe I'll try Kit Colbana in the future, but seeing as how my introduction is Frankie, I'm gonna take my time.
