Sheep Book Review: Immortal Rider by Larissa Ione

Immortal Rider, by author Larissa Ione, is the second novel in her Lords of Deliverance series. Most folks might run and hide from the four Horsemen of the Apocalypse but I'd run straight into their fearsome arms. These men are Hot with a capital H, and when you combine Larissa's uncanny ability to write top quality literature, you have yourself one heck of a party!


The signs are everywhere...disastrous world events. Evil rising up, unleashed upon the innocent. The prophecies were there...but no one listened. Until now. The time has come for those who can either usher in Doomsday...or prevent it. They are here. They ride. The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.

Arik Wagner, a soldier with the U.S. Army's paranormal unit, the R-XR, kissed a girl and liked it. And then he went to hell as punishment. Where he's spent weeks being tortured...and plotting revenge.

Limos, Horsewoman of the Apocalypse, isn't your average girl. She's immortal, dangerous, and her fiancé is Satan himself. In a moment of weakness, she gave in to her desire and kissed Arik, triggering her fiancé's wrath - and his claim on her. In order to save Arik, and the world, Limos must make a dangerous pact with her recently turned evil brother, Pestilence. A deal that might just cost her her soul...and her heart.

For those of you that don't know, I fell in love with Larissa's Demonica series a long time ago. So when she started this spin-off series to Demonica, I knew that I had to jump on board. Book one in the LOD series, Eternal Rider, sold me lock stock and smokin' barrel all because of uber man muffin Ares. *dreamy sigh* That man is one of my fav alpha males from the vast number of books I read. That being said, I was a little concerned going into this story with Limos being the focal character. The sister to the three kickass Horseman brothers has big shoes to fill, but Limos brings the girl power with a vengeance! She's one tuff chick who enjoys a lot of pain with her pleasure. I can dig it. *winks*

Forced to wear a chastity belt for the last three thousand years, Limos is well past due for some romps in the stables. But when your betrothed is Satan himself, getting some action isn't going to be that easy. Limos wants to get her freak on with Mr. beef candy land in the form of military heart-throb Arik. (Sir! Yes, Sir!) BUT with a history of lies and deceit this means Limos has some serious patching up to do with her family. Will she be able to stop all the lying when it's become a habit of survival over the centuries? I'm not telling! As the reader you really are pulling for Limos but things get heated in the book and the path ahead looks bleak and unsure. I gotta hand it to Arik for being the type of man who can understand the "crazy" yet still he's ready to die for his woman.

Larissa puts together some of the most incredible stories with a ton of interesting dialog between characters. Ultimately it gives her books a stamp of believability. Immortal Rider also has tons of action-packed fighting with blood and guts for those that love some gore in there adventure stories. These are not the boring type of books I can't really stomach reading, these are a nonstop journey in the world of the Lords.

I'm going to recommend to newbies that you start with either book one of this series or even go back to the Demonica series and work through those first. There's a bunch of cross-over characters from those books, which for folks that are up to date with Larissa's works is a great thing. Not that you CAN'T enjoy this book but a few things are mentioned with little or no explanation in THIS story. Those details have been talked about throughly in previous books. I think readers would understand the series as a whole better if you read them in order. So it's good for the fans, but a little tuff for new guys in certain areas.

I did get a nice hunk of Ares, so hats off to Larissa for keeping the previous characters still VERY involved in the continuing series.

  1. I loved this book! My first Larissa Ione books was ETERNAL RIDER and I loved Ares so much that I had to get my hands on the Demonica series too! And I was very anxious to get IMMORTAL RIDER, had to get it just as soon as it was released. I can't wait for the next installment!

  2. Ares is the MAN! I tell ya no other makes my heart beat faster then that man. Godly sexy alpha yummy cake! LOVE him. :)

    You'll really enjoy the Demonica series too and I can't wait to hear what you think.
