Once immortal, tyrant and ruler of all he surveyed, Fabian Lucimanticus of the distant planet of Anxur is vanquished in battle and made to take the Dark Fall - an abyss that cycles through time and dimensions. With no idea where in the universe he will land, he endures a thousand years of purgatory, loses his immortality and grows a very unwanted conscience. Now human and alone in a strange time and place, he vows to rise again, find his brother Marcellus, who jumped with him, and regain what he's lost. But first he needs to find a mage strong enough to magic him home. Instead, he gets Tig, a poor potter trying to survive life in a land ruled by warlords and marauding gangs.
When she finds Fabian, naked and disorientated in the desert, Tig's first thought is to turn him in to the local warlord to a fate of almost certain death or slavery. Her second thought is that his family might pay a handsome reward for his safe return. But as she grows closer to this confused, displaced warrior, she wonders if she can ever let him go.
Fabian wants only to find his brother, go home, and regain his status and immortality. But his new human conscience and meeting with Tig makes him question everything he ever held dear. Can a tyrant really reform? If he found a mage strong enough to get him home will he go, knowing he would have to leave Tig behind?

300 pages of well developed characters and plot. The sex was not over the top but plentiful. Tig truly outshined the others. Her spunk, tenacity, and courage showed Fabian all he needed to be with her. I loved them together.
Loveable characters, really like how the author always kept you guessing as to how certain situations were going to turn out. Thought this was a unique approach to story telling. Well written and definitely plan on purchasing book two; hope it's as good.
Fabian By C.A. Nicks Lords Of The Dark Fall Book 1 Fabian Lucimanticus Persidio of Alurides. King and most high lord of seven platueaus had been stripped of everything. Sent to suffer in purgatory for one thousand years, to live through seeing and hearing all the lives he had taken and destroyed. He went from everything to nothing. Falling to earth and having to live a peasant life and in hiding as well. He had one thing on his mind and one thing only...he would return to Anxur and blood would flow from those who did this to him and his brother Marcellus. Tig finds the naked man who claims to have fallen from the sky. She is trying to get by in her simple life. And yet this big handsome man has invaded her life and her heart. Sadly he only wants to get back to his old life. The life so much like the warlords who took everything from her people. What a great story. It's a pretty long book, but it easily keeps the interest of the reader as it continues to move forward. Fabian is the one man who can change Tig's life and those around her. If only he would see that they need him here as a human. And yet his old immortal life won't let go. Book two in the series is Marcellus, Fabians brothers story. **Sexual content and language
The beginning of the story was a little boring and it was hard for me to focus my attention on it, if fact I kept putting it down and going back to it. The book finally captured my interest around the middle of the story and I actually enjoyed the book. If you can stick with it, it’s worth the read.
I loved this book...wonderful love story!! I will be reading the second book for sure...really long book and it kept me glued to the pages the whole time!! Great first time read for me with this author and I am hooked!!
