Lothaire has found his bride, the woman who brings his body back to life and is his destined mate. The problem is that two souls currently inhabit his bride’s body. One is an evil goddess who lives for blood, violence and all around nefarious deeds. The other is Ellie, a mortal hillbilly who is content to live-out life on her family’s land. Naturally, Lothaire assumes that his bride is the evil goddess and begins planning a way to exterminate Ellie’s soul.
