Author Essay: Of Angels and Demons
Larissa Ione

When I first came up with the idea for the Lords of Deliverance series, which features the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, I knew I was going to have to make these guys, who have a horrific reputation, not so...horrific. But how? The answer hit me immediately; give these guys something to battle, both internally and externally.

So I gave them a demon mother and an angel father, curses that make them both powerful and miserable, and lives that they would have to fight for. One wrong move, and they would risk turning into humanity's worst nightmare.

During the course of the books, they struggle with their dual natures and their basest desires, walking a fine line between good and bad. But... who defines good and bad? These males and one female aren't human, so today's societal boundaries and cultural moral values don't apply. Yet they do have rules they must follow, rules that chafe at both their demon and angel sides.

As Horsemen, they have spent five thousand years in a balancing act, knowing that someday they will become either fully demon or fully angel. The balancing act is exhausting, frustrating, and at times they've been tempted to force the breaking of the Seals simply so they can experience something different, or something they've been missing. Their approaches to life and death are as varied as their personalities.

Ares, the Horseman who will become War when his Seal breaks, has never wanted to experience his demon side, but he also knows he's no angel. He cares little for humanity, so does he fight the evil half, or embrace it?

Limos, the only female Horseman, used to glory in evil. She fought her angel side for centuries...but her brothers have changed things, and now she finds that being an angel might not ever be possible.

The Horseman known as Death, Thanatos, is probably the closest to his demon self. He fights it, but because celibacy is what keeps him from turning evil, he's been tempted to go to the dark side. Five thousand years of loneliness have taken their toll, and sometimes, his angel side falls to shadow.

Reseph, who bears the name of Pestilence, is the most "angelic" of the four siblings. Oh, he spent five thousand years wallowing in what humans would consider sin, but he never had a malicious bone in his body. At least, he didn't until his Seal broke. Now his demon side is fully engaged, and his angel side is struggling to break through. Can he defeat the evil?

The answers to these questions and more can be found within the pages of the Lords of Deliverance books.

I hope you enjoy learning more about the Horsemen! --Larissa Ione

I really, really hate giving a somewhat negative review for one of my favorite authors, but....

First, I've read Ione's Demonica series which I highly recommend if you haven't as many of the minor characters make reappearances in her Rider Series. It helps to put some perspective on their talents (Shade, Wrath and Idess all make appearances in this story).

Second, I am starting to believe that Ione is not so good at female character building as the main story line (she excells at all the books where the male is the main character but falls flat when the female is the main character IMO). I had a similar issue w/Sin's story in the Demonica Series though not nearly as "messy" as this one. I was starting to get worried that Ione was losing some of her talent while reading Sin's story and just forcing books out asap for the editors though I'd give Sin's book 4 stars. I could just see things unraveling. So I was pleasantly, pleasantly surprised by Eternal Rider. I LOVED Ares story. I couldn't wait to get my hands on this book. ALL Ione's books I read within 2 days max bc they are just.that.good. Fantastic world building and character development. Then I read Limos. Sigh. Took me 4 days to read and I was really pushing myself through it.

Problem #1- I don't like Limos. She's a PITA, whiney and a lier. I can't identify with her and I certainly don't get the love story. She lies and her lies are a HUGE tie to the story. But that's overlooked a LOT. Which brings us to prob #2. Ione pushes the "protective" thing w/Arik when the REAL character issue and story line should be how Arik doesn't like lying and Limos's downfall is that she lies. I did not connect w/the protective issue. It was lame. The author was telling me how he's protective and not "showing" me w/the writing.

I really like Larissa Ione and have thoroughly enjoyed so many of her books - she is a great writer. I could not stand this book. I was angry the entire time I read it. I did not like Limos. She is a selfish coward and a liar who caused so many deaths with her foolish choices. She claimed to be remorseful, and would supposedly go on "self destructive" binges - when in fact she just caused more death, pain and suffering in the world. I can get behind the idea that these characters weigh their good and evil natures and that they have power that can be hard to manage - but Limos went over the top and I didn't want her to have a happy ending. The same with Pestilence. I haven't seen anything on a book for him, I don't see how there could be. There's no coming back from that kind of worldwide destruction unless Larissa Ione can figure out a time spell that takes it all away so that it never occured to begin with. Larissa Ione has a talent for bringing you into the story and caring - which makes it so difficult to read about entire countries falling and the loss of life happening in her books. She did too good a job and I still feel icky thinking of that kind of pain and destruction happening on earth. I literally feel depressed and as Than said "defiled". I'll probably read the next book cause I'm a story junkie who needs to know the ending - but I already have issues with the heroine for the next story as well. So maybe I won't.

No blurb this time 'round. This Demonica spinoff and the Demonica books themselves have always had some darkness to them but this first part of book was filled with torture of the hero, violation of a continuing character, and more of Pestilence's depravity just tossed off in the background. I started Immortal Rider the day it came out and read the first hundred pages and then I just got tired of being bludgeoned with how evil the bad guys were and set the book aside.

I did end up picking this back up, but I struggled through to the 2/3rds mark where the action finally kicked in. I think that the reason that this was such a difficult read for me is that I just never got to the point where I clicked with Limos, actually I didn't much like her and never came to care about her redemption. Normally, a great hero can offset a less than stellar heroine but Arik, despite his interesting history and secret powers, was pretty generic for a leading man. It didn't help that the romance between them didn't work for me either, how does one get past all the deception and torture - not as easy breezy as it is done here for sure.

One of the things that kept me reading to the bitter end was that I really liked Thanatos and his thread had a better build up than Limos/Arik's right up to the 'completion' of Regan's mission which was shockingly terrible. In fact all of the 'deflowerings' in Immortal Rider were squicky. So the lack of the normally uber steamy build up to a satisfying consummation - times two - dropped the book from okay to not.

So bottom line, I am not exactly sure what to say.

Being a human in love with an immortal can take a wicked toll on your body. In the case of Arik Wagner one stolen kiss from Satan's potential bride Limos has sent him literally to the torture chamber of hell. But Arik believes that one kiss is worth all the broken bones, starvation, and near death experiences and will keep her name in his heart.

Limos is the sister to the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse and has been dealing with the contracts and pacts each of them has made to the underworld they fight to control. Never hoping for love or even affection from anyone, especially a human when Arik freed her to have feelings there was no stopping the flood that followed. She fought to free him from his prison, heal him with her touch, and figure out a way to be with him in spite of the huge obstacle preventing that from happening since Satan definitely knew the devil is in the contractual details.

Limos is will get the demons back where they belong, her brothers to stop bugging her about being with a human, and perhaps get Arik to cross the thin line from the human world into hers. When the demons come calling and bring their entire arsenal with them, she may not be 110% ready but Arik is and nothing will stop him from having her in his life and by his side for eternity.

Yikes but this book is an engrossing read with amazing characters and the intricate story details Ms. Ione is noted for. You start it and realize it is the middle of the night and you still cannot put it down and remember sleep is highly overrated.
