Heaven doesn't want me, so all I have is hell.
Wow oh wow but does Larissa Ione know how to save the very best for last. I do believe that Revenant may top my list of favorite bad boys that she's ever written. After all the revelations that took place in Reaver, I simply couldn't wait to get my hands on this book. Not only did it live up to every expectation I had, it managed to absolutely blow them out of the water.

I luuuuuuuuuuuuuved this one. Review to come... Maybe.
Blaspheme has a deadly secret: she's the forbidden offspring of an angel and a fallen angel.
Really? So much secrecy in Reaver's book about Blaspheme's secret just to blurt it out in the BLURB? Where's the mystery?
Not that I'm not excited. Just puzzled!xD

The Demonica/Lords of Deliverance series is probably my favourite PNR series EVER! And as a mad reader of all things PNR, that’s a huge statement to make. But Larissa Ione has created an intricately developed world that covers all things paranormal, with characters that I adore, heart-pounding action, heaps of laughs and sensational (and hot) romance. It’s all win!
As the name suggests, this is Revenant’s story. Revenant was introduced in the last bo ...more
(And I end up re-read the 1/4 last part book just because, duh, it's fuckin' awesome!!)
It's hard to part with your favorite series, and not just once, but twice. I have the same feeling when read , the last book of Demonica series and rejoice when knew that Larissa continue her story with Four Horsemen of Apocalypse arc. I love all her books, not one of them never let me down (well, Ares did. He's a JERK after all) and I always swallow her new book right after said book come i ...more
If anyone has been given a raw deal…it’s this guy. To discover that he’s not the fallen angel he has believed to be for the last thousands and thousands of years…but that’s a good angel….and that he has a twin brother, Reaver…who just by the way, lived a fab life in Heaven whilst

Revenant!!! He was every bit as I expected and more! I swooned all over the scenes he was appearing in.
Sadly, I wasn't so ecstatic about the book as a whole. I loved how everything was tied up with a neat bow. The Demonica/Horsemen story arc came to a highly satisfying end, and it it felt incredibly good to see the four main villains locked away in their personal kind of hell. Oh yeah..
But the romance part was pretty disappointing. I was enjoying it circa the point Blaspheme and Reven ...more
RATING: 5 Perfect Ending Hearts!!! :D <3
Warning: The review contains some spoilers and a lot of raving!
Revenant is a shadow angel, the most powerful being apart from the Satan himself in Sheoul (hell). He also happens to be one of the most cocky, arrogant hero I’ve read but I couldn’t help but love him. His dialogues made me laugh. He is also very vulnerable and hurt about; how he not only has a twin brother but he had thousands of memories wept bec ...more
5 SEXY BAD-ASS SHADOW-ANGEL STARS!!!
Revenant, oh naughty Revenant... you sexy bad boy come reluctant Hero...
A few years back after I read Thanatos book I remember thinking "That's it, Larissa Ione has ruined every paranormal story I will ever read because there just isn't a badass around to beat him..."
And then she created Revenant...
I cannot, simply cannot take any other badass seriously from here on out.. and this story arc, man oh man is it the biggest fight you'll ever see between g ...more
So it's time to say goodbye to the Lords of Deliverance and Revenant is a fitting end. It's not my favourite of the series, I really don't think anything will beat Reaver but I did enjoy it.
I think the main problem with waiting a year between books is that I tend to build it up in my head and try and figure out what way it will go. This inevitably leads to disappointment but I can't stop myself from doing it. It didn't go the way I would have liked but I'm pleased with how it was all wrapped up. ...more
Revenant is Reaver's twin that was raised in Hell. Now that his memories are restored, he struggles with his identity. Who he should have been, who he was told he was and who everyone thinks he should be now.
Blaspheme, on the other hand, knows exactly who she is, but has to keep her identity secret from those who seek to harm her.
We have two sort of lost souls trying to find the ...more
REVENANT left me in shock and awe. What a way to close out (or is it?) a series. This book is epic, masterful and full of everything Larissa Ione has done so well over the years! Alpha, cocky hero. Strong, independent heroine. Sexual chemistry that will leave you needing a cold shower. And a truly epic story!
Revenant and Reaver are twins, one grew up in Heaven and one grew up in Hell. Their lives are nothing alike, and they’ve had to grow into very different people. Revenant had to learn to gro ...more
Revenant has just had his memoreies back, and he now knows he has a twin, Reaver. Unfortunately they were split at birth. Reaver going to heaven, and Revenant being kept in hell.
Now revenant has to decide which side to fight for, good or bad, but heaven doesn't want him, and hell has a new life forming that will take his position in hell away from him.
Then he meets Blaspheme, wh ...more
The end of the series (or is it?) is really kick arse. The last few chapters are gripping.
Plus, how can you not adore a hero, who think he's bad to the bone, who saves kittens from being eaten from the mother that will give bir ...more

Revenant was one fucked up fallen angel.
No, wait…angel. He’d only believed he was a fallen angel.
For five thousand fucking years.
But he wasn’t an angel, either. Maybe technically, but how could someone born and raised in Sheoul, the demon realm some humans called Hell, be considered a holy-rolling, shiny-haloed angel? He might have a halo, but the shine was long gone, tarnished since his first taste of mother’s milk, mixed with demon blood, when he was only hours old.
Full review to follow when I'm not on my Kindle, but for now, if this has to be the end, I couldn't have asked for more.

This is the sixth book of the Lords of Deliverance series or as I renamed it, "Welcome to Revenant's pity party" .
I really loved the 5 books of the Demonica series as well as the firsts three of the Lord of Deliverance. But after the uneven and tepid-ish Reseph's as well as Reaver's books I wasn't that excited about Revenant's book.
Where Reaver's character was introduced very early in the Demonica series and had steady appearances through out both Demonica and Lords o ...more
I honestly admire an author who can take a character that they have successfully made readers loathe and turn them into a character with the ability to break readers’ hearts. That’s exactly what Larissa Ione accomplished in Revenant.
Revenant wasn’t a good guy. He not only admitted it, he did so with pride. Or was he resigned to it? He was the bad twin, at least on the surface. He worked really hard at hiding how he really felt, mostl ...more
По впечатлениям особо не распишешься - будут спойлеры. Если обобщенно, то мне понравилось, что мой интерес не увядал на протяжении книги, и было вполне переживательно.
"Ривер" оставил целый букет вопросов - кто же Blaspheme на самом деле и почему она в опасности, как предотвратить возрождение Люцифера, как Ревенант и Ривер помирятся, как накажут Рафаила, ну и как Идесс сможет иметь ребенка.
Так что экшн снова на высоте, внимание держит без усилий.
Любовная линия была без сюрпризов, последователь ...more
