Review of Eternal Rider by Larissa Ione

Eternal Rider

Larissa Ione

Grand Central Publishing

ISBN 13: 9780446574495

432 pages

Eternal Rider is the first novel of Ms. Ione’s new series Lords of Deliverance The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, it’s also a spinoff of her highly popular and explosive Demonica series so as you meet these new unbelievable characters you’ll also get to catch up on your old friends from Underworld General, if you’re new to the series have no fear you will not be in the dark for long because this exquisite storyteller will fill you in with no problems.

The human and demon world is on a crash course to Armegeddon and with one of the four horsemen already turned evil it’s up to the other three to prevent total annihilation of the world as we know it.

Ares has lived for more than four thousand years knowing that if the seal he wears breaks he will turn into War and Apocalypse will soon follow, he’s already lost one brother and now it’s up to him and his remaining two siblings to prevent the ultimate big bang.

Cara Thornhart’s life has been in upheaval ever since “the event” two years earlier but when an injured animal shows up at her defunct vet clinic she can’t turn him away but he’s way more than she’s bargained for and he leads her on a crash course to Ares and life as she knows it will be a thing of the past. When Cara and Ares meet it’s fireworks of an epic proportion, the question is will they survive the explosion.

Ms. Ione is a master storyteller and it becomes obvious on the first page as she baits her audience and keeps them on the line until they’re well and truly reeled in by the end of the novel. She gives us a bigger than life plot the biggest good vs evil yet filled with dialogue that will keep her readers turning pages faster than you can say God of War and with characters straight out of our fondest dreams and worst nightmares. She presents to us characters that will make us gasp, make us gag and keep us up nights. Her hero Ares and heroine Cara are two of the most haunted lovers you will ever have the pleasure of reading about. They will tug at your heartstrings as they stumble through relationship potholes that we mere mortals could only ever imagine on their way to that all important Happy Ever After. Will they make it, read on my friends for that’s for you to find out. The love scenes are exactly what you’d expect with an immortal, edgy, sensual, gritty and powerful, so if it’s cold outside you might want to open a window and if it’s hot for heaven’s sake turn down the air.

Be prepared to nail bite your way through this one, if you have a heart problem you might want to consult your doctor before reading. For the rest of you healthy human beings get ready for one heck of a ride.

Ms. Ione thank you for another start of a great series, my only disappointment is that I will have to wait just like the other mere mortals for the next instillation.
