Before I begin my review, I have to tell you I am a bit biased when it comes to this book. You see, I was the winner of the “name a character and book dedication” prize Larissa had offered in a charity auction back in March of 2011. Originally is was to have the book dedicated to the winner and name a minor character in either the third or fourth book in this series but Larissa, being the amazingly kick ass person she is, gave me the option to wait and nam

Finally…..we have Reseph’s story!!!

After being the most malevolent and evil character in the previous 3 books, I was questioning how the author would be able to turn him into an endearing romantic hero that I could bond with as much as I have done with the other three Horsemen. Boy, did she do it!!!

We discover the real Reseph that his siblings always spoke about….the laid-back, loving, caring and fun person…and who ever guessed…a poet living inside him…forget Lord Byron, John Keats…Reseph’s

One of THOSE books

I have to tell you guys that I love everything that I’ve read from Larissa Ione, every book is better than the last. I was expecting to be so blown away by this book, but all the revelations have left me open-mouthed.

This book’s main characters are Resph and Jillian. Resph doesn’t remember who he is, doesn

I absolutely hated HATED HATED Reseph/Pestilence in the previous books.

When his seal was broken, he became the worst enemy of the humankind spreading various horrible diseases all over the world and killing millions of people. Horrible deaths!

Rogue Rider is the book about his redemption.
In the last book, he has disappeared from the face of earth. In this book he has no memory, no name, no past. Since he used to be a good guy before he became the most evil creature on Earth, the loss of his mem

Ah.Fucking.Mazing!!! *Spoiler Alert, might contain a spoiler from a previous book..*

For Reseph, First Horseman of the Apocalypse, life as he knows it, is over. Having been the horseman whose seal broke and almost ushering in the End of Days, Reseph's memory has been wiped clean, and he's been sent to the human world to start over his life, to heal from the torment of Pestilence's actions over the last year.

I'm just going to say much as I liked this book, I was really disappointed!! What happened to the bad boy that we have been tempted by and teased about since book one?? There was no way I was expecting FARMER JOHN!!! And whil

More than 5 stars and Top Read 2012!

To sum my feeling right now after read this? This one is purrrrrrrrfect!

A perfect ending and HEA for Reseph and his ladylove Jillian Cardiff. I really hate Pestilence and what he do in the past. But, I can't help fallin' over head to Reseph. Rakish, charming but also make me want to hug him because he really regret his mistakes (as Pestilence) and want to start a new life. Jillian Cardiff is not bad and I'm glad she's so stron
Annie (Under the Covers Book Blog)
Ione does a fantastic job of developing a believable relationship between Reseph and Jillian, even though Jillian seemed too trusting at first. A lot of the book was focused on their relationship and I think that in terms of the romance, this is probably the strongest book of the series. Many readers will be anxiously waiting to see how Ione will redeem Reseph after all the evil he has unleashed on the world. To some, what he does will be unforgiveable, yet Ione expertly weaves a redemption stor ...more
I can only imagine how awesome this book is going to be. With everything he's done as pestilence. I can imagine what his falling in love and having to atone for his sins. Then having to make up with his siblings! Will make Lore and Sin bonding with the Sem brothers look like cake.

Almost killed in a demon attack, Jillian Cardiff relocated to a remote mountain town in the hopes of forgetting. If only forgetting were so easy. One day, while gathering firewood, Jillian finds and rescues Reseph, a man who seems to have no memories of his life. He does, though, have an interesting effect on Jillian, and also seems to have some deadly skills.

Jullian Cardiff's life was forever changed when she was viciously attacked by demons. She retreated from the world moving into the hills of Colorado where she could live secluded from the world.

Okay I have to start by saying Larissa, you are the BOMB!! I love your books. Can you do any wrong? In my eyes that is a big NO!!!
2nd I am so excited that I got a chance to read Reseph’s book early. The waiting has been killing me. I have been in love with Reseph since Sin’s book (so long ago). I just love the heck out this him. Even when he was that bastard Pestilence I still has mad love for his crazy butt. But boy howdy
This is my favorite book of the Four Horsemen. I love the conflict. The love story is awesome. The arc of the series is spot on. I will reread this one for sure.

I had no issues with Resph because I didn't read the books in order. Ha. Take that! I liked this book enough to read the rest of the series is lovely binge.

The struggle to accept that he was posssed by a demon who did the most horrific of things with his body while he watched is a wonderful internal conflict. He has all the memories of
It was difficult to rate this book because I LOVE this series but to be honest I found the first half of the book quite slow then the last quarter was really good but too short.

Hopefully Reaver's book will hold its promises.

When I pick up a new book by Larissa Ione I always feel like I’m returning home. After all, she is one of the first authors to ignite my love for the PNR genre and I cannot name you one book that has not blown me away with her riveting storytelling. Rogue Rider is no exception and once again Ms. Ione allows us to escape into a world I find myself never wanting to leave.

First of all if you are a Paranormal Romance Fan and you haven't read Larissa Ione, then where the hell have you been?!
Stop what you are doing and get the first book in her Demonica Series. I promise you won't be sorry.

But a word of warning-Do not read these books out of sequence, you will get seriously confused!

This is the fourth book in the Lords of Deliverance Series which revolves around the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. Which in my opinion is one of the most original paranormal ideas I h
In the words of Limos: Awesome-sauce!

'Rogue Rider' finishes off the 'Lords of Deliverance' series with a bang! Reseph is the last of the four Horsemen of the apocalypse to get a story - and considering he spent the majority of the series as Pestilence, a despicably, disgusting bad guy everybody loved to hate, Ione had her work cut out for her! But she did it... and did it well!

Reseph will never be my favorite Horseman (I'm a Thanatos girl!) but IMO this story was truly perfect for him. Ione did

FINALLY, the series is back to what I loved about Demonica <3

Full of plot twists, big revelations, great character development, and a fantastic HEA.

Oh yeah, and I did I mention confirmation that Demonica is back with Reaver's story next?

Oh yeahhhhhh.

4.5/5 Stars, full review to follow.

I've finally decided to continue this series and I'm just wondering why it took me so freaking long. Rogue Rider was amazing, everything I wanted it to be. Larissa is such a phenomenal writer, I cannot wait to read the next one.
Ronda  Tutt

Larissa Ione's writing is brilliant with a creative flare that had me glued to the story from the beginning to the finish.

The story picks up from the last installment of the Lords of Deliverance where Reaver (Heavenly Angel Watcher) erased Reseph's mind of all the deeds and carnage that Pestilence reeked habit on and then cast him from hell into earth somewhere.

The story brilliantly shows how Reseph's good side can out weigh all the evil bad side of Pestilence and control it w

This book reminds me again why I adore Larissa Ione. This fourth book is a winner for me. Reseph is one of the four horsemen who became Pestilence. I fell in love with Reseph. He's a tortured soul. Jillian is the perfect woman for her. She's a woman who is still shell-shocked from her encountered with the demons.

The conflict in this story was both believable and heart breaking. To redeem a villain so evil that his entire family would turn on him is not an easy task. Larissa Ione did an amazing j

Excellent final book in this explosive series, although I felt the declaration of love between Reseph and his honey too fast.

Also love Larissa's trademark humor with her characters. Reaver's reaction to a big humdinger of a spoiler is a hoot.

Bring on Harvester and Reaper's book! Let's hope it's filled with dirty, nasty hot loving.

I wasn't sure what to think the first half of Rogue Rider, since the heroine is a new character, but the book definitely picked up for me about mid-way through. And it is SO freaking GOOD. Fans are going to be very pleased! Can't WAIT for more REAVER!! Full review closer to release date.

Larissa Ione has written a fantastic, dark, gritty, exciting, and gripping series starring the Four Horseman of the Apocalypse. Rogue Rider is the last installment in this series and picks up where Lethal Rider ended.

At the end of Lethal Rider, Pestilence had been stabbed by Thanatos, thinking he has killed Pestilence and his brother, Reseph. In Rogue Rider, Jillian Cardiff, who lives in a remote town in Colorado, finds a very handsome and very naked, unconscious stranger in the woods. She drag
Lisa Annesley

At the end of Lethal Rider, the angel Reaver contrived to have Pestilence locked up inside Reseph, instead of having both Pestilence and Reseph killed. Reseph was sent to the demon equivalent of hell to be tortured. Reaver took pity on Reseph, wiped his memory, and sent him back to the human realm. In Rogue Rider, Reseph awakes, naked, in the snow in a remote area of Colorado.

Jillian Cardiff finds Reseph and takes him to her cabin, where they are temporarily snowed in. He can't remember any

I received this ARC courtesy of my good friends at Netgalley & Grand Central Publishing in return for my honest opinion.

Rogue Rider is definitely author Larissa Iones crowning glory ! Resephs story is all about redemption & his triumph over Pestilence. Reseph has been saved from the bowels of hell by Reaver & dumped in the middle of nowhere ( buck naked in a snowdrift) . Yummy ! Reaver wiped his memory clean so that Reseph has no memory of the heinous acts that his counterpart commi
Never thought that I would get to love Reseph. Lots of action, hot & steamy sex, and a seriously hot horseman of the apocalypse.

Larissa Ione’s Lords of Deliverance series is great fun to read. Where else can you find the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse portrayed as gorgeous, hunky, smexy specimens of men (or woman)? Each book tells the story of one of the Four Horsemen. Book 4 focuses on Reseph (Pestilence). Ever since I read Lethal Rider, I have been dying to read Reseph’s story.
