Mr. Bane doesn't disappoint and I personally can't wait to see what happens next!
WOW!!!!! To say that this book was brilliant is an understatement!!!
Lucian pours everything into it and leaves the reader still wantng more, if that's possible.
He throws the proverbial 'kitchen sink' at Ruin and Isadore, causing havoc and chaos everywhere.
To say much more would be to give away the story....but let me just say here that Lucian you left me totally shocked.
I want more...please give us more....
There is so many paths that this story can take and I am excited to see which one you will take.
An Angel in human form arrives in the swamps of Louisiana, with no memory of who or what he is. He is drawn to a woman "Isadore". He's been watching her, studying her. When she is threatened by a male visitor, he feels an inextricable need to protect her, which he does. He also feels the need to kill her. These powers arise in him, powers of fire and ice. At war with these thoughts and powers, he goes to her. He senses that she can help him, that she has the answers.
Isadore, a scientist, hiding out in her inherited shack, not willing to deal with her own repressed memories, feels drawn to this strange and scary man. She feels that God wants her to help him, so she teaches him what she can. An otherworldly creature arrives and tells the Angel/man that he is a carnicifem and that his name is Ruin. He tells him that as a carnicifem, his job is to pass judgement and execute. Ruin is covered in strange tattoos, which the visitor who calls himself Caliber, touches and manipulates. They are a kind of control panel that gives him assignments, where he is needed to pass judgement and execute. He is told that he needs Isadore to go with him, as they have bonded and are linked.
They go on these assignments where dying people are surrounded by other creatures, angels of death, some dark, some good, all vying for their souls. Isadore and Ruin are helped along the way by another force, "Scriber", he's like a historian, writing the story as it unfolds. Each assignment is leading up to a truth, answers that will help Ruin to remember the truths he has forgotten and help Isadore remember hers too.Read more ›
Cons: On the same note as above, I had a hard time swallowing that a link could overcome grief in it's infancy. Grief has stages, and in the early stages, grief is always the largest thing in the room. I think LB did a good job of expressing grief with specific situations, however that rapid U-turn was a bit much. Human or no, Ruin needed a little passing of time for healing. Also, I would have "5 starred" this book in a minute if it had been edited properly. I also consider myself a LB fan as I have purchased every book and love the spunk and style, but I do rate as objectively as possible. Writing is very difficult and exhausting, and this is a wonderfully crafted story that probably took many late nights; please give it the editing it deserves!

Once again Luican Bane ripped my heart out and I enjoyed it!!
This book was amazing. It made me feel sad, missed off and then sad again!! Loved it!
Really didn't like book 4 at all. Hard to when as a reader I have to read a story completely chopped up and then a new character just put in to replace the one from books 1-3. Read morePublished 15 months ago by Astra

I liked the story but the big twist had me twisting. I couldn't help but feel like I needed more before reaching the point we're now at. Looking forward to the next bookPublished 16 months ago by Jennifer
