The Fixers is a series of novels written by Debora Geary. If you have tried and failed to find a series of novels called The Fixers by Debora, it is because the author wrote those books under the Pen Name of Audrey Faye.
Order of The Fixers Series
Debora Geary has garnered a dedicated fanbase over the years for writing Fantasy and romance, not to mention women’s fiction. Most readers will most likely know her from the Modern Witch Books and their various spin-offs. The author spent roughly three years writing the Modern Witch Books before finally creating the Audrey Faye Pseudonym and embarking on a journey to write a detective series with a female protagonist.
The Fixers series of books is technically called The Fixers of KarmaCorp. The series follows individuals called Fixers who are tasked with performing certain activities that will benefit the Galaxy as a whole.
However, they do not always know what they are supposed to do, how they are supposed to do it and how their actions will inevitably benefit the Galaxy. Fixers are individuals with special gifts that allow them to solve difficult situations.
The first book in the series, Destiny’s Song, introduces one such fixer, a 25-year-old by the names of Lakisha Drinkwater. As a Fixer with the talent of singing, Kish knows that there are no better singers in the quadrant. As such, she is surprised when she is assigned to a backwater planet and tasked with using her talents to babysit.
Even though The Fixers is described as a science fiction series, audiences are discouraged from going in with the expectation of reading something explosive and over the top.
These books have no grand wars between alien races or epic conflicts amongst genetically engineered beings. In fact, the books are relatively quiet and detail the most interesting aspects of life in a galaxy filled with wonders.
Fans of Audrey Faye will tell you that her books can be just as engaging without the action and adventure aspects that permeate the average science fiction novel.
Best The Fixers Books
Audrey Faye loves to create and write about characters she would like to be, and she does just that here, with some of the best books in her The Fixers series including the following:
Destiny’s Song: Lakisha Drinkwater is surprised when she assigned babysitting duty on an Inheritor-ruled backwater planet. Kish will be the first to tell you that there is no better singer in the quadrant than her. As such, she doesn’t think that her latest assignment is an effective use of her skills.
However, she has her orders, so she carries them out. The task at hand proves to be a difficult one in the long run.
This book is surprisingly clean. It is edgier than Debora’s other work and it is clearly targeted towards adult readers. However, the language is primarily clean. And while there are conversations about sex, the act itself isn’t explored.
Debora places a lot of emphasis on her characters, confining a lot of the action to the mind of her protagonist Lakisha.
Lakisha is a singer. However, her talent of singing is something special. As a Fixer, it helps her get into the minds of others, sense moods and manifest various other abilities. In this book, she is tasked with nudging two people to fall in love, an objective that presents many challenges.
Grower’s Omen: Tyra Lightbody has been given a special assignment. The inhabitants of an experimental species biome are having terrible dreams and throwing temper tantrums as a result. Tyra is sent in to figure out why.
And in attempting to carry out her task, everything Tyra knows and believes in is tested, this including her abilities and loyalties. She will be forced to make the hardest decision of her life.
The second book in the Fixer series follows Tyra, a Fixer with the Grower talent. Tyra is told to go investigate a phenomenon of bad dreams assaulting a local community. What she finds shakes her to the core.
This book can be read as a stand alone, without any knowledge of the first book in the series.
