Some men deserve a second chance. Others don't.

Lord Avis, the once proud supreme god of Mystal, was under no delusion which category he'd fitted into … five years ago. Since then, he's spent three years on the run and two more being horrendously tortured at the hands and talons of his wife's Highborn Hellion family, leaving the Mystallian ruler with scars he will never forget. They had broken him for his crimes against their house, but somehow he has to dig deep to find the strength to be something he'd never been before.

A family man.

He has to pull it together. He has a wife and two daughters who need him, and he isn't about to let them down again. However, knowing how much he's changed and proving it to the men of her family who hate him with every fibre of their being is a challenge he must meet head-on.

Because he isn't staying in Hell any longer than he has to.

He's going home.
