Awesome! I loved this!

I’m a sucker for books that take Biblical themes and build upon them. Angels, demons, images of heaven and hell, obscure Biblical and apocryphal stories – I love it. Larissa Ione’s Eternal Rider gives the story a modern flavor. The series builds upon the author’s Demonica series and is best read after Sin Undone. Many of the Demonica character favorites appear in this spin-off series.

Larissa Ione has superb storytelling skills. From the first page to the last, the book was action-packed, fast paced, and full of sexual steaminess. I could not put this book down. The world building is spectacular. The reader is immersed in a world full of angels, demons, and other creatures all waging a war between good and evil. The battle scenes were extremely well done. I felt as if I were there. I enjoyed the author’s sense of humor. Her dialogues are witty and clever. Her use of acronyms makes me chuckle. Who else would name their hospital UGH – Underworld General Hospital?

When it comes to writing alpha males, the author is in a class by herself. The descriptions of Ares had me swooning. I loved Ares and his love interest Cara. They were wonderful together.

Of course, the story can always be improved with the addition of a cute puppy. In this case, a cute hellhound named Hal, short for Halitosis. Best watchdog ever!

If you haven't read Larissa Ione's Demonica series, I would suggest you start there, just to get a taste of her world. You can start with this book, but you may miss some of the fun stuff.
