The story opens with a description of Isadore, a self-sufficient, quirky neuroscientist from Boston, who is living in a home that she has inherited in the swamps of Louisiana. It seems to be a good place to hide from a crazy ex. Her life pretty much consists of obsessively mopping her floors with Pine Sol, tending to her crawfish traps, and helping her neighbors. Isadore is lovable from the first paragraph of the story. Events take place that lead Ruin, an unworldly but beautiful specimen of a man, to enter Isadore's life. Although apprehensive, she agrees to help Ruin learn the basics of living in a mortal world, including mastering the language, which proves to be quite hilarious at times! Fire and ice are the key components of their relationship, both literally and figuratively. As Ruin discovers his destiny of being a judge and executor of wicked humans, Isadore finds herself drawn to him and yet she consistently challenges him at every turn, something Ruin finds himself attracted to, but shared sexual desires become complicated by morality.

Isadore, is a smart intelligent scientist that has moved back to her home in Louisiana out in the swamps that was left to her by her father after his passing. She is beautiful, sexy and a Christian, but no saint, she even has a trashy little mouth on her and fights her sexual needs daily.
Ruin, a long-haired, tatted, tanned, sexy-built man helps her out of a sticky situation and then flees, but she is puzzled by some words he mutters before fleeing. Later he comes back to her house asking for help. Finding out he doesn't remember certain things about himself, she is determined to help him in his quest to learn things and figure out who he is and what he is suppose to be doing. Here is where the fun, laughs, sensual nature, damnation and questioning of God takes place. Finding out who and what he is, Ruin and Isadore are on a quest to fulfill his destiny, but in the process feelings become involved and Ruin and Isadore have to figure out how to handle those as well.
I loved this story. I am looking forward to the next installment in this storyline. I said in a previous review of one of his books that I enjoyed watching this author grow and improve and that he could write anything and his writing is good and imaginative. The only reason this is not a 5 star rating is editing. It was rushed.Read more ›
Great job, Lucian Bane. You've sated my need for a worthy and hot paranormal fix fantastically!
But as the story progressed she grows on you and in the end you are rooting for her and Ruin. And Ruin, yes, lets discuss the man of mystery for a moment. A paranormal not like any other I've read before he is a class of paranormal sent to judge and execute. It really hits home on choices we make as humans and who will judge us in the end and make the final decision as to where you end up in the realm of good vs evil. My favorite thing about Ruin is is inability to lie. It caused MANY a funny argument with the pair proving them to be uniquely matched indeed. Ruin has a very hard time wrapping his head around the concept of "love" and Isadore makes it her mission to try and teach him what love is. Will they both learn what they need to know of each other and their feelings and emotions? Time will tell and I can say that time can not pass QUICKLY enough for book 2 to be released!!! Fantastic story Mr Bane and i anticipate what you have coming next!
