Magic is real, and hungry—trapped in ancient texts and artifacts, only a few who discover it survive to fight back. Detective Sal Brooks is a survivor. Freshly awake to just what dangers are lurking, she joins a Vatican-backed black-ops anti-magic squad: Team Three of the Societas Librorum Occultorum. Together they stand between humanity and magical apocalypse. Some call them the Bookburners. They don’t like the label.
"Debtor’s Prison" is the fifth episode of Bookburners Season 2, presented by Serial Box Publishing. This serial will unfold in 13 episodes.
Asanti’s murky past gets a bit clearer when an old friend visits her to reminisce…and collect on a debt. No one likes the idea of helping the mysterious magical madam, but after all, one does not simply say no to the Maitresse.
Every small glimpse each episode of Bookburners gives us into the past of the various characters is like a little treat for me, and in this episode, after getting a bit of Liam's past in the previous episode, focused on Asanti, who easily is my favorite character.
DEBTOR'S PRISON fits the typical bill of a Bookburners episode, offering a bit of fun, a bit of mystery, and even a bit of politics. Though this episode wrapped up in a rather strange, rather quick, way, the lead up to the climax was just as interesting as the actual fight at the end.
DEBTOR'S PRISON was funny, so much so that I laughed out loud at certain moments, and I was happy to be back in the Bookburners world. Every episode seems to open another door to possibilities, but without leaving the reader hanging. All of the options to explore just make the world seem that much richer.
I am super behind on my reviews of Season 2 so far, but that means you could go ahead and binge read up to episode 10! Let me tell you, it's totally worth it!Series Titles:
