Lusus Naturae is Beauty and the Beast in reverse. Charles Renshaw, an aristocrat, purchases a monster called Cyprian - a member of the rare species, Lamia. At first, Cyprian fulfils the role of a collector's whimsy, then becomes an object of passion as Renshaw's obsession with her leads him on a path to ruin. Within a short time, he sees his monster's feral nature emerge and understands that she cannot be controlled as easily as he first imagined. As Renshaw tries to limit the damage he comes to realize that ownership of this exotic creature brings great responsibility.
