    They are here. They ride. The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.

    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.

    My Thoughts:

    First let me say I love and adore Larissa. She’s a wonderful person. Second let me say she had me with the first Demonica book I read, from then on I was hooked to her writing. Now let me get to  ETERNAL RIDER…First it is the beginning of a new series, THE LORDS OF DELIVERANCE series, however it is connected to her DEMONICA SERIES. I can honestly say that you can read this series without reading the other, by honestly why would you want to? Afterall, Larissa wrote them. Now for the story itself. ETERNAL RIDER is one of those stories that as soon as I started the first page I forgot who wrote it, I forgot the things on my list that I needed to be doing, I was completely lost within this world and with these characters. I did NOT want to leave. And I’ll say I started this book waiting at the doctor for my FIL and completely missed him coming out, had a woman sitting near me saying 3/4 times, “miss isn’t that your father, miss, miss” FIL said she repeated it serveral times, he just laughed because he said it was like I was dazed when I finally looked up and noticed someone was talking to me. So yes I was lost within the world Larissa had created. These are characters that are flawed, tortured, have evil in them yes but are good as well. They are realistic even if they have paranormal aspects to them. I fell in love, how odd to say I LOVE WAR? Or I should say I LOVE ARES! We do get a visit with characters from the Demonica series so those of who loved those characters will be thrilled to see them again. Add to all these delicious characters we get a story that is fast-paced, engaging, and keeps you guessing. Honestly I worried up til the very end if we’d really get a HEA out of this one. I just had no idea what to expect. It was a true EDGE OF YOUR SEAT read. I’d highly recommend ETERNAL RIDER to any fan of paranormal, steamy, deeply engaging, fascinating, and so much more that I can’t even explain it well reads. You won’t be disappointed!  Now go read the excerpt and be warned once you do, you’ll be dying to get your hands on this fabulous read! Thank you Larissa for writing a story that let me completely forget about the world around me and just be lost for a few hours(yes I finished this book in one day) in a world of delicious men, and strong women, even if they aren’t all human! Now how fast til we get the next book??? Must I wait???
