This box set contains the first 3 volumes of the Demon-Hearted series, as well as a short story, by Ambrose Ibsen.
Howdy. My name's Lucian Colt.
I'm one of those disgruntled millennials you've heard about on the evening news. I've got a master's degree in Art History, a mountain of student loan debt and no job to show for it.
Wait, scratch that. I track down stolen pieces of art for wealthy clients and then beat whoever stole them to within an inch of their life. Say what you will, but it puts bread on the table.
Something went wrong with this last job of mine, though. I walked in on something I wasn't supposed to see and got murdered by witches. Yeah, real, legit witches. Never saw that one coming, did you? Neither did I, and the only reason I'm writing this is because some doctor working for an ancient secret society decided it would be a good idea to use me as a science experiment.
See, he implanted a new heart in me and saved my life, but it wasn't just any old heart. It was a demon's heart. Nifty, eh?
Anyhow, I'm back and better than ever, except that, now and then, the demon takes over completely and I do awful things. Lose control. But enough about that. This is a story about how I (mostly) rein in the demon's impulsive personality and seek revenge against the coven of witches that tried to kill me. Along the way, I learn a thing or two about this secret society I'm apparently now a member of and find out that there's a lot of shit out there that goes “bump” in the night.
A short story that takes place between the events of Raw Power and Roaring Blood. Previously published in the anthology Full Metal Magic
This is an inspirational book about personal growth...
Ah, who the hell am I kidding? I'm Lucian Colt, and this story is mainly about me punching zombies in the face. Loads of 'em.
You'd think that life would be easy-breezy for a handsome, demonic badass like me, but you'd be wrong. The demon doesn't help me with rent, doesn't help me pick up chicks or anything fun like that. Instead, he's all about violence. Lots of it. So, when this super-powered necromancer shows up in town and starts emptying the city's graveyards, my buddy Gadreel thinks it's go-time. Before the Veiled Order knows it, a war is about to break out between the living and the dead. Pretty scary, eh?
Oh, and get this! Turns out that this Demon-Heart gig isn't all it's cracked up to be. The guys who stuck this infernal organ in me left out the fact that, someday, when I die, I'll be heading straight to Hell. Ain't that a bitch?
Join me as I kick some major ass, have an existential crisis, get shot down by cute girls, generally fuck everything up for my friends and, just maybe, come out of the deal having learned how valuable my teammates are. It's going to be a wild and filthy ride!
Happy End of the World
Lucian Colt: Feared, Revered and... let's face it. Kinda sexy.
Lucy here, Detroit's resident Demon-Heart and reckless jerkboy. When last we met, I was getting chased out of the country and put onto a direct flight to Tibet. Remember that? Exile was my reward for saving the planet from a powerful necromancer and his horde.
Well, now I'm back. And I'm not loving it.
See, it didn't take the universe but a minute to start crapping on me upon my return to Detroit. Things are different at the Veiled Order, for starters. There's a new guy in charge, and he hates demons. Can't freakin' stand 'em. He pledges to keep a close eye on me, and if I don't play by his rules, I might end up on the organization's most wanted list.
That's not the worst of it, though. While I'm trying to deal with new tensions at work, an elusive Maori deity with a grudge decides to loose an inter-dimensional monster upon the world in the hopes of triggering the Apocalypse.
I can't seem to catch a damn break.
