"Doomsday is fast approaching unless the remaining Horsemen of the Apocalypse can prevent it. In the previous Lords of Deliverance novel, Thanatos, the horseman of Death, was tricked and now the world may shake with his anger. Gifted storyteller Ione's tales are gripping and dark, filled with tragedy and hope. Transfixing!"―RT Book Reviews on Lethal Rider
"Ione's third Lords of Deliverance paranormal builds the secondary story line of Immortal Rider into a rollicking ride of thrills, angst, and sexual heat. Thanatos, aka Death, is one angry Horseman of the Apocalypse. Aegis Guardian and OCD sufferer Regan Matthews molested him while he was drugged, and those around him conspired to keep her resultant pregnancy a secret. Thanatos kidnaps Regan, vowing to keep her his sexual prisoner, but her genuine remorse over tricking him to impregnate her so that the birth of their baby might prevent the Apocalypse wears down his resolve and opens the door to a fiery and moving romance between damaged souls. Meanwhile, those trying to avert the upcoming end of the world must cope with double-crossing Watchers, false prophecies, vampires with a grudge, and the ongoing treachery of Death's brother Pestilence. Ione humanizes her leads and also captures the urgency of their mission, resulting in a very satisfying read."―Publishers Weekly on Lethal Rider

I absolutely adored the romance in this book. Perhaps that was due to the more sweet nature rather than the hard and raw nature of the previous couples. Don't get me wrong, the chemistry between them was rather steamy and delicious, but I'd have to say it was more romantic for lack of a better word. There's just something about the fact that Jillian and Reseph came together and fell in love on human terms before any of his past was revealed. It was exactly the sweet and passionate nature needed to start the path of redemption for Reseph and make me fall in love with him all over again. I also really loved that they both were damaged, yet each had an underlying core of strength. Although, Jillian's was much more apparent than Reseph's, making her exactly what he needed. In fact, these two are probably my favorite couple since the very first ones, Tayla and Eidolon.
As much as I have loved all of Larissa's books, I have to admit that I was rather gun shy to read Rogue Rider. I just had a hard time believing that Reseph could possibly be realistically redeemed. I mean the guy was absolutely horrid, and a lot of his actions were unforgivable in my opinion. Granted, he was Pestilence at the time, but Reseph was still in there somewhere, and even if he wasn't he still looked the same whether he was good or evil at the time. I should have known that not only would Larissa give Reseph a realistic path of redemption, but also make him shine so very bright in the end. In fact, because of his incredibly dark past and perhaps in spite of, I felt that he deserved his happy ever after more so than any of his other siblings combined. Yes, each of them had their own obstacles and hurdles in life, but Reseph fell so very far that his journey to redemption was nothing short of miraculous and beautiful.
I have to admit that when I finished this book I was vastly disappointed as it left so many things open outside of Reseph and Jillian. (Don't worry they do get the expected happy ever after that is basically required for Paranormal Romance, I'm referring to other elements left open.) In fact, my exact reaction was "What about *BLANK* and what happened to *BLANK*? This really stinks!" I had assumed that since there were four horsemen and that this one featured the fourth one, that it would be the last in the series and wrap everything up. Well, you know what they say about assuming. After a good bit of searching I found a mention from Larissa on Twitter that she was currently writing Reaver's book. So in between my elation that there would be another book, I also feel rather like a heel for thinking Larissa would have left us hanging so bad at the end of a series. Now, of course the wait for that next book will be rather agonizing, but in the end I guess it serves me right for doubting in the first place. Putting that aside, Rouge Rider was an incredibly enjoyable read that only added to the already outstanding Demonica/Lords of Deliverance world. In fact, I loved this book so much that it sparked an audiobook re-read plan for both series as I just can't get enough of this world, and Larissa's writing. Trust me, fans of the series cannot possibly be disappointed with Rogue Rider.
I know that I've said it before, but I probably will say it every time after I read a Larissa Ione book. She is the most amazing story teller of our generation. This book was brilliant!! OMG, I never thought that I would be able to fall in love with Reseph the way that I did while reading this book after everything that he did as Pestilence over the last three books. But I completely and totally did fall in love with him. I swear....pure writing brilliance!!!
You all know that I am a sucker for a good tortured hero, and you don't get more tortured than Reseph. For the past year, he has done every bad thing possible as the deliverer of the apocalypse. Even though he spends the first half of the book without his memory, he senses that he wasn't necessarily a good guy. But that doesn't keep him from totally falling for Jillian, the woman who found him naked and unconscious in the snow. He may not have any memory, but he has a good "sense" for things and he knows that what he's feeling for her is the first time he's ever felt like this in his 5000 year old life (although at the time, he has no idea that he's lived for that long.)
And when he gets his memory back...OMG, I literally just ached for him. Then there's Jillian. She was attacked way early in the apocalypse by a hoard of soul-shredder demons. When the truth comes out about that attack...*sob*....my god, she's a strong woman to still do what she needs to do. I really liked her character simply because she doesn't realize how strong she really is...and she is so strong. Over and over she has to stand up for herself and for Reseph and for what's right and she does so with amazing strength, even when she's dying inside. I loved her character.
This was another one of those books with amazingly deep layers of story and there was so much to this one which I adored. EVERYTHING about the story lines with Reaver and Harvester, I loved. I want more and CANNOT WAIT for Reaver's story...next in the series. I really liked the emotional upheaval among the other horsemen, Reseph's siblings. It took them so long to finally accept that there was no saving him, and now they are faced with having to forgive him when they'd finally written him off. It's a bad situation for all of them.
BTW, I find it really humorous that in the intro scene with Jillian she is cursing the weatherman. Knowing Larissa's history in meteorology, I thought this was really fun.
I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.
