Revel in the ruin as award-winning horror writer Tim Waggoner brings the eldritch terror of Eberron® to life.

Lirra Brochann is second-in-command to a force conducting secret military experiments on the creations of Xoriat, the Realm of Madness. When the government threatens to withdraw support for the experiments, the alchemist in charge, Lirra’s own uncle, makes a drastic error and a portal to Xoriat is opened. In trying to stop the ensuing madness, Lirra becomes bonded to one of the experiments, a symbiotic tentacle whip with a will of its own. Maddened by his connections to Xoriat, her uncle and his sudden forces of symbiotically bound soldiers threaten all Lirra once stood for. But stopping them means she’ll have to gain control of the tentacle whip.

A blend of fantasy, horror, and military fiction Lady Ruin brings a whole new view to the post-war world of Eberron. With a Lovecraftian bent, this adventure will send chills up your spine.

Though the pace of the novel was quick, a light read compared to some of the more ponderous epics, to me it seemed a bit rushed. The concept was great about an experiment with sentient limbs that attach themselves to a person and mentally try to take control until one woman manages to learn how to control her "accidental" attachment. There could have been much more to her escapades. Otherwise, a fun, fast paced read.

I picked this book up on for my Nook based on my interest in the Eberron world from Dungeons & Dragons. I really, really wanted to like it, but there really wasn't much to the story. It was a very quick read and it was a "small" story limited to only one main plot, with no real subplots. The cast was very limited, the action was made me think of a movie with a very limited budget that kept it from doing very much more than a couple of locations and a few characters. I was also a bit confused at it being an Eberron novel. It could have been set in any fantasy world out there with little to no change. A bit generic for my taste, which was a bummer for as interesting a world as Eberron is.The writing was ok, but not overly exciting. Very competent, middle of the road story and characters. If you can get it cheap, it's worth reading. Otherwise, I'd borrow it from a friend.
