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.

This is one of the best books Larissa has written to date. I'm shocked by the sheer wonder of it all and how she can balance such darkness, snarkness from the characters and sexiness.

If you're dying to get your hands on a great paranormal romance that has a few zingers and pushes the envelope, which Larissa has done, you need to read this book.

The one disappointing thing was no upside down tree sex with the H/H like in the last book. I should mark the grade down for that alone, but since I bow a...more

I still remember the first time I rode a horse which is synonymous as saying I still remember the time I almost died. That hellbeast ran riot across a large desert area surrounding a partially active volcano and laughed at my feeble attempts to summon help or stop his rampage.

What this earned for me was a year or two of riding lessons because where I grew up, riding lessons were the thing to do for proper young ladies. As there is nothing proper about me, you can be sure that I never progressed...more

I’ve been waiting for months for Immortal Rider. I kept on stalking Larissa Ione’s blog, me being such a big fan and all, watching her news, avoiding spoilers and so on. Finally I managed to get the book and the time to read it.



The question of the day would be: Am I happy with this book? Was it everything I was hoping for? Did I do the happy dance after finishing it?

No.

One of the things I like best about Larissa Ione is that her books are unpredictable. And there is always so much going on. And they are so freaking hot! (I guess that's more than one thing, but let me gush for a moment.) I enjoyed Eternal Rider, but it took me a little while to get into. Not the case here. This story reeled me in from the beginning and didn't let go.

Limos is the only female among the Horsemen of the Apocalypse. She is as beautiful as she is deadly. She is also a virgin. Limos w...more

I have been eagerly anticipating Arik Wagner’s book for a long time. I adored him in the Demonica series and now, with his own book, the hot human brother finally gets his chance to shine. So going into this book, I was already giddy because I would get some Arik action.

Enter Limos aka Famine, the only female horseman. Before she was even born, she was promised to the Dark Lord. Being unwillingly betrothed to Satan brings up a lot of problems. But when Arik can’t deny his attraction to Limos any...more

OHHH-MYYY-GOOODDD!! I am totally in love with the cover! Seriously, I have like zero saliva left after staring at it!

(Come on, how can you resist it?)

Arik Wagner, a soldier with the U.S. Army’s paranormal unit, the R-XR, kissed a girl and liked it. And then he went to hell as punishment. Where he’s spent weeks being tortured…and plotting revenge.

Limos, Horsewoman of the Apocalypse, isn’t your average girl. She’s immortal, dangerous, and her fiancé is Satan himself. In a moment of weakness, she...more

***RANT BELOW WITH SPOILERS***

This one star rating is not because the main plot but because of a sub plot that led to book #3 in the series. On it's own, this book was OK even if I found the business of unconditional love a bit dubious given what Limos had done..."so you were responsible for the death of my children? Of course I forgive you!!"

My main gripe with this book is that it had one of the most disgusting setups for a couple I've seen. I was so full of rage when I finished reading that I...more
✽ Sharon is an emotional book junkie ✽
Immortal Rider is Limos and Arik's story. Limos, aka Famine, is the third horseman (woman) of the Apocalypse. Arik is human and Rune's (from Demonica and Shade's wife) brother and works with human forces to stop the Apocalypse.

This book has so much going on that I don't even know where to start! It immediately begins with Arik kissing Limos and getting taken to Sheoul to be tortured into saying Limos' name. Limos has been betrothed to Satan and no one is allowed intimate relations with her. So,...more

And the plot thickens! Whew, I loved it and now I can't wait for the next.

In this second book, Limos is faced with her many past lies as they come back to haunt her. Long ago she made a deal with the devil, literally, and now those she has come to care about are going to learn of her lies unless she can stop those who threaten to reveal her secrets.

Arik is the human who has been lusting after Limos, and after one quick kiss he finds himself fighting for his life as demons try to torture and pu...more

“You,” he purred , “are a HILF.” “A what?” “Horseman I’d like to fuck.”

Lethal, sexy Limos is the only female among the four Horseman of the Apocalypse. A virgin who was promised by her mother to Satan as a child, she is bound, literally, by a chastity belt placed on her body by the devil himself until he takes her as his bride. Needless to say, if she ever gives in to her sexual desires or gives her affections to anyImmortal Rider by Larissa Ione male, it will prove deadly. Limos, along with her...more

IMMORTAL RIDER was a bit of a disappointment coming from a huge Larissa Ione fan. Don't get me wrong, I still loved the book, but aside from that there were quite a few disappointing happenings in IMMORTAL RIDER

Our heroine this time around was the sexy and badass, Limos who is one of the four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. Limos was the #1 reason why I did not dig this book so much. I found Limos incredibly selfish and she was caught in enough lies that she didn't know what to do with them all. Lim...more

The Lords of Deliverance series gets even more complex and addictive in the second book. Although there’s still a primary romance, there’s a whole lot more going on, as those characters on the side of Evil work to bring about the Apocalypse and those on the side of Good work to prevent it.

Limos aka Famine, the sole female horseman of the Apocalypse, has two big problems: she’s betrothed to Satan, and she has some very ugly secrets she’s keeping from her brothers. When a human male named Arik kis...more

Larissa Ione once again show her class! Immortal Rider is one of her masterpiece who will make her readers have a blast ride! Fasten your seat belt, folks! The reason why I reduce it to 1/2 star, maybe because the ending I feel too "easy" and rushed. And can't wait for Than's book. Oh yea, bring it on, Paul Marron!!

Immortal Rider starts up about one month after the events of Eternal Rider. Once again, the reader is immersed in a world of angels and demons and a very determined horseman looking to bring on the apocalypse. Immortal Rider focuses on Limos, the only female horseman, er….horsewoman?

Limos is not an easy character to like. It is really difficult to feel any sympathy for her. Limos lies often and her lies cause a lot of strife among her siblings. Oh, and she has been promised to Satan – as his bri...more

I really hate I read this book.

I hate that this book nearly gave me heart attack like five times. Larissa, once again, has proven that you can make epics and REALLY steamy erotica work like peppermint in hot chocolate. But you have to make sure you're paying attention--there are some fine details in here. She did a wonderful job setting up the future books and let me say: DUDE, I am enthralled with a unbelievably evil mess that is Pestilence and I. WANT. HIS. BOOK.

However I was really disappoin...more

No blurb this time 'round. I started Immortal Rider the day it came out and read the first hundred pages and put the book down. 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 just got tired of being bludgeoned with how evil the bad guys were and set the book aside.

*Spoiler warning – nothing detailed, but there will be general spoilers about a few plot points that will carry forward into the next book of this series. So you’ve been warned!*

Limos, one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, is looking at a future of being married to Satan, literally. She wears a chastity belt, and if any guy attempts to get around it, they get very important…bits chopped off and Limos endures the pain of the belt herself, so she’s li...more

5 AMAZING STARS

Immortal Rider will take you on a paranormal ride from beginning to end. The action, the scheming with just the right amount of romance. You will not be bored with all the different things waiting for you in the Horsemen world.

I have a confession to make, though. Even though I love Larissa Ione and Demonica was one of my favorite series, Lords of Deliverance didn't start out with a bang for me. I was not too thrilled with Eternal Rider. It was just ok, even though the storyline wa...more

This is one hell of a Horsepeople book!! :)

This was the best of Larissa Ione so far. It's not her normal formula of PNR, there is so much going on that it's impossible to focus only on Limos and Arik. And I'm the 'hot romance' lover, I usually only want to focus on the couples. But in this book! I was madly engaged in every damn scene.

I don't have the proper words tonight, to express all the important parts of Immortal Rider that make it one of my favorites of the year. This book...more

Larissa Ione is one of my auto-buy authors. Her world building is amazing. Seriously, totally freaking awesome. So awesome you feel like what you are reading is really happening, and if you were to look out your window or turn on the news you would see pestilences diseases coursing through humans, and Demons roaming free.

That being said, I loved MOST of this book. I don't want to re-hash the plot--so to speak. There are about 50 million sub-plots that weave their wa...more

Wow, what a great book.

I loved the Demonica series, every book was a 5 star read for me. Then I started with Lords of Deliverance and I didn’t like the first book as much. It was still great, but the world building dragged a bit. Well, Immortal Rider was right back on track. I loved it.

Limos was an interesting character. She was actually raised in Hell as a demon and pure evil. The love for her brothers eventually changed her to good, but for most of her life she’s been lying to the people she...more
Sammy, the Cyborg Slut  & Lover of Books
It's hard to enjoy a love story when you don't like the heroine or the hero. I rated this book a 2 because I outright disliked Limos and there was nothing special about Arik. This book would have been a solid 4 star if I could have cared if the main couple found love. Limos lies so much to everyone around her: her brothers, and Arik, the man she claims to love. She even kills Sartel to protect her lies because he was about to spill the beans. Arik made for a boring hero that I never connected wi...more

Recommends it for: Paranormal Romance fans who like it hot
Larissa Ione delivers humor, action, hot sexy times, and solid world-building in book 2 of her Lords of Deliverance series. This book was hard to put down. So many interesting developments in the story arc may Lethal Rider's June release seem so far away.

My Grade: B or 4 stars (I liked it better than Eternal Rider.)

I really love the way Larissa goes about the detail about these Horsemen of the Apocalypse and the religious part of the storyline. I really like the storyline what I didn’t care for was the fact this book had too many other side stories. When I read a book I want the hero and heroine the main focus with very small side stories, that way I get to really know them. I think the other characters should wait their turn for their book. But that’s my thinking. This is a great story with action and dan...more

What a crack up. This book had the usual wicked sarcastic humour that I love from Larissa Ione. And do I really need to comment about the mega awesome amounts of hunky men?? Hmm? Didn't think so.

I adore the world Larissa has brought to life in these novels. Well, to be honest I had already fallen in love with it during the Demonica series, but the addition of the Horsemen is fabulous.

You need to read the other books to appreciate this one. I won't go into the story much since so much was going on in it, but the heroine Limos had a habit of lying a lot and what mistakes she made in the past spilled over, like how she was engaged to Satan and how in the beginning she was bad, and the efforts she made to make sure these secrets didn't get out ended up creating bigger problems.

I am looking forward to the next book because Than deserves revenge.
