His name is Ares, and the fate of mankind rests on his powerful shoulders. If he falls to the forces of evil, the world falls too. As one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, he is far stronger than any mortal, but even he cannot fight his destiny forever. Not when his own brother plots against him.
Yet there is one last hope. Gifted in a way other humans can't-or won't-understand, Cara Thornhart is the key to both this Horseman's safety and his doom. But involving Cara will prove treacherous, even beyond the maddening, dangerous desire that seizes them the moment they meet. For staving off eternal darkness could have a staggering cost: Cara's life.(courtesy of Amazon)
Larissa Ione takes her magnificent Demonica series to a whole other level as she opens the world of the Lords of Deliverance series with Eternal Rider. Ione is probably the one author that made sure Demons were top on my list of faves. Second only to my weres/shifters – demons/angels can’t possibly get any hotter than when done by Ione.
Ione has a foresight in creation of her worlds that deliver seamless writing. The Demonica world started our path, and drives us into these 4 key characters. Still she takes the world even further, intricately wrapping the classic tales of Lilith. As the first seal keeper is broken. The two brothers and one sister must come together to protect their seals. Never expecting romance to be an option Ares meets his hearts match. One of the best shower scenes out there *wink*. Cara takes in stride her world being completely turned over, and she fights tough. Since this spins from the Demonica Series, I recommend reading those first (some characters are brought in), don’t get discouraged that you have 5 books to read before you can get to this one, because you will be thoroughly glad as you read them. Ione writes with action, suspense and smut at the right levels – HOT.
There is not a time when I'm reading one of Ione's books that I feel something is missing or lacking. Whether it's a battle or a tup, Ione hits a home run everytime.
