Description

Callie Delgado always puts family first, and unfortunately her brother knows it. She's emptied her savings, lost work, and spilled countless tears trying to keep him out of trouble, but now he's in deeper than ever, and his debt is on Callie's head. She's given a choice: do some dirty work for the mob, or have her brother returned to her in tiny pieces. Renting souls is big business for the religious population of Gem City. Those looking to take part in immoral--or even illegal--activity can borrow someone else's soul, for a price, and sin without consequence. To save her brother, Callie needs a borrowed soul, but she doesn't have anywhere near the money to pay for it. The slimy Soul Charmer is willing to barter, but accepting his offer will force Callie into a dangerous world of magic she isn't ready for. With the help of the guarded but undeniably attractive Derek--whose allegiance to the Charmer wavers as his connection to Callie grows--she'll have to walk a tight line, avoid pissing off the bad guys, all while struggling to determine what her loyalty to her family's really worth. Losing her brother isn't an option. Losing her soul? Maybe.show more

Review quote

"Mueller is definitely an author to watch. . . . Borrowed Souls is an outstanding entry into this exciting genre, you don't want to miss out."--Scandalicious Book Reviews "Borrowed Souls combines classic and modern fantasy elements in a fresh take on the genre; readers who like dark worlds and compelling heroines will enjoy this smooth read."--Booklist, reviewed by Nicole Foti "Mueller explores an intriguing concept in a seedy, visceral setting that pops to life on the page."--Publishers Weekly "Snappy, snarky, and oh-so-sexy, Borrowed Souls is one for the keeper shelf! It's the stellar writing and sharp storytelling that makes this book a standout hit. Trust me, one-click the heck outta this s#*t!"" --New York Times bestselling author Darynda Jones "Borrowed Souls is do not miss urban fantasy. A fresh, unique world for readers hungry from something awesome." --New York Times bestselling author Lauren Dane "Fun, heartfelt, and wildly creative, Borrowed Souls packs a new brand of punch in a debut urban fantasy with a soulful twist on magic. Chelsea Mueller brings a new and exciting voice to the UF genre." --Kelly Meding, author of the Dreg City series "Dark, fun, and edgy, Borrowed Souls sucked me in from the very first page and didn't let go." --J. C. Daniels, author of the Colbana Files "A terrific world with an unlikely heroine, quiet and determined, with a pure heart and fiery will to protect her family. The hero, Derek, is big, tough, morally ambiguous and utterly delicious. I think this is the start to a fabulous new series. Definitely recommend!" --Jeffe Kennedy, author of The Twelve Kingdoms and The Uncharted Realms "Gritty realism, pitch perfect characters and a heavy dose of red hot sex. What more could you ask for?" --Shannon Mayer, author of the national bestselling Rylee Adamson series "Fast paced with tons of great action, snarky dialogue, and just enough steamy romance.

Spectacular world-building and a badass heroine." --Shawntelle Madison, author of Coveted "Distinguished itself with its inventive premise and well-built characters . . . I will DEFINITELY be snatching up the next installment. Theories aside, the plot was provocative, and I was happy with the direction that things seem to be taking. . . . You should spend your hard-earned money on BORROWED SOULS this week!"--RabidReads, reviewed by Carmelshow more
