Hello & welcome!
I hope you all enjoyed your Easter Sunday & if you don't celebrate Easter then I hope you enjoyed your Sunday nonetheless.
As previously promised, this post will be featuring a book review of Immortal Rider (Lords of Deliverance #2; Demonica #7) by Larissa Ione.
**Spoiler Alert: This review may contain references to previous books in the series. For a review on the first book in the series, Eternal Rider (Lords of Deliverance #1; Demonica #6), click here.
So, for those of you who don't know me too well yet, I should let you in on a little secret. You see.. I can be a bit obsessive/compulsive/passionate... about certain things. In this case, we're talking about this series. The second I finished Eternal Rider, I went on BN.com to purchase the second book in this series for my nook ereader. No, I'm not getting paid to say this but my love for quick and convenient access to awesome books is a powerful thing... which has the tendency to evolve into free marketing.
Here is the synopsis you can find on the back cover of the book:
Sexy, powerful, and immortal, Limos is on a crash course with destiny. She’s been marked as Satan’s bride and her jealous fiancé wants her all to himself. The only way this Horseman can keep herself—and everyone else—safe is to keep her distance. But not even Limos can save herself from the secrets she’s kept . . . or resist the seductive allure of one very brave human.
Arik Wagner knows the saying “love hurts” better than most, yet he never thought stealing a kiss from Limos would land him in Hell. Literally. It takes all his military training to survive the demon torture, but once he’s topside, Arik realizes that the agony has just begun. With the Apocalypse looming and Satan demanding his bride, will Arik and Limos surrender to the desire smoldering between them? Or will giving in to their passion unleash hell on earth?
This book starts up right where the first one left off - the four Horsemen (or three Horsemen and Horsewoman) of the Apocalypse are fighting against a prophecy (and time) to prevent their seals from breaking. Really, I mean the Horsemen except for Reseph (aka Pestilence) whose seal has already been broken and is wreaking havoc on all of mankind (and maybe demonkind as well).
In this book, we watch Limos struggle to separate her past from her present and of course, it catches up with her. With Arik around, she is constantly reminded and tormented by her previous choices in life and how they will not just affect her, but those she has come to love as well... most presently, Arik and her brothers.
So basically, this book is full of non-stop drama and holy hell is this full of sexual tension! Like the back cover mentions, Limos is betrothed to Satan and you can only guess how ecstatic he is when Arik tries to lay his moves on Limos (yes I definitely said, "lay his moves" - insert hash-tag 90s kid here). Aside from the torture Arik is put through for simply "stealing a kiss", there is a bit more that prevents Arik and Limos from finishing where that kiss left off upon his arrival back from hell and guys, the wait is more than worth it.
All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed this book, recommend it, and have just finished reading the third installment in this series, Lethal Rider, Thanatos' story... mostly.
If you like Paranormal Romance or simply hot demons with morals, definitely pick this book up because you will fall in love.
