Ruin was sent to Earth to Judge and Execute. What he didn't expect was to be molecularly bonded to a human being such as Isadore.
I hesitated picking up this series long ago but now wonder why I didn't read it then. Ruin was absolutely wonderful. He has a refreshing mind, seeing things that were normal to me but yet, it wasn't for him. There were moments where I couldn't help myself and gave in to outwardly laughing in public, which gave me weird stares for said public. Oh, the fight scenes were great!
As for Isadore, I was in a love-hate relationship with her. I love her here, I hate her there but overall, she's tolerable enough for me to wish the best between her and Ruin. And she made me rethink what Love was too.
It got on my nerves at how child-like Ruin was at the start of book 2. That...that nice-ness too. It was so weird! I almost screamed at wanting the Ruin from book 1 back. That cliffy at the end of book 3 was the icing on the cake. How could you, Mr Bane?? I knew things won't go as planned when it comes to Lucian Bane writing it. As if my experience with his other series didn't tell me that.
Isadore is a kind, loving, but yet a lying individual who has her quirks like you wouldn't believe. Ruin is an angel of execution who is confused and doesn't know what he should be feeling; especially what his feelings are towards Izzy. Together they will see and learn a lot.
This series will leave you speechless and on the edge of your seat waiting to see where this author takes the characters next.
Book one begins with the story of Isadore and Ruin. Isadore lives in the Cajun swamps on her own. She left her life of science behind (with a PH.D no less). She has extreme OCD. This is her coping mechanism to deal with the mess inside of her. Ruin does not remember who he is at this point and asks her for help. Ruin cannot lie, and Isadores' “little white lies” physically hurt him by causing fire in his body. The ice that Ruin feels is a comfort to him when the fire rages. The conflict between good and evil and how we as individuals war against it in our minds is so exact! Isadore is to go on tasks that Ruin is to complete as the Judge and Executioner. The moral I got from this is; Ask for help, even if you don’t want to!
Book 2, This one examines the issue of Isadore’s wall (within her mind) which is something many are familiar with when something horrible happens to us and we can’t cope with it. Ruin has to breach the wall and look beyond and help her replace the horror with good. A core of this book is the battle that wars within us as individuals is between good and evil. Lesson learned : The description of pain, within the mind, and what it holds was astounding, REAL and it breaks individual when they hold on to the shame, despair and fear from things that happen when it is not their fault.
Book 3, the third installment begins with Ruin now having a wall within his mind now that he removed Isadore’s. Ruin is making errors in judgment and must face the consequences of his actions. A new player the Scribe helps both Isadore and Ruin through their tasks. He is also the one to write their story.Read more ›
