5 Perfect Ending Stars

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.

Revenant was one fucked-up fallen angel.

Not really…
Apparently Revenant had been deceived for the last 5000 years. Born and raised in Sheoul, he always thought that he was a fallen angel before his memories returned in Reaver’s book.
So he is Reaver’s twin brother and it seems he is also the uncle of the four horsemen.
So he is a good guy.
Well, he does not like this! He has always been the bad boy, the dark guy, the evil angel you don’t want to meet when you visit Hell.

So, Revenant will always be my favorite Demonica books to date, simply just because the 1/4 final parts (and battle) alone. The most, epic, final battle that Larissa Ione ever write that I doubt she can write it again in the future (Demonica: Birthright when, Ione?). Out of nowhere, I want to re-read Revenant again, since my reading fumes just kinda snuffed out, but reading Eidolon's excerpt in the back of my Revenant copy make me read Plea

4 Badass, paranormal, action packed, sexy stars

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

Revenant was a badass with a black heart with some splashes of gold. I thoroughly enjoyed his identity crisis issues and his obsession with Blas.

Blas was interesting in how what she was trying to be was the opposite of what really was inside. I enjoyed her interactions with Rev and how she got to him. I'm happy with the solution they gave her, I think. The other night have been more interesting.

Nice finale to the series or at least a closing to an overarching plot that's been a problem. My one

This is the final book in Larissa Ione’s incredible Lord of Deliverance/Demonica Series and what better to end it off with Revenant’s book!!

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 Re

As always Larissa Ione does not disappoint. - Oh, how I love her books!! - I was missing reading this author terribly. But after 3 re-reads I just could only wait for a new book to come, and I'm glad it was everything I dreamed it would be. Every now and then a book comes into my hands... a book that forces me to stop time and just read. I swear I just can't do anything else once I start with those type of books. So yesterday at night I foolishly started this book thinking it would be another r ...more

I just love Larissa Ione’s Demonica series. Revenant is Reaver’s twin, separated from him at birth, but raised in hell instead of heaven. This one was really great not only because we continued in the angels world, but because we got to explore the tortured brothers relationship theme as they were split at birth, one sent to heaven, and one to hell, which has turned Revenant into something of a bad boy.

Blasphemy is an interesting character as well, a part-angel who has been hiding out for years
Initial Thoughts: Definitely for fans of the Demonica and Lords of Deliverance series. The world is dark and full of demons and angels. The four horsemen are living with their mates, kids, and scary hellhounds. All that's left is some closure for Revenant, the "evil" twin with an attitude. Loved the author's sense of humor. I still chuckle when I see the acronym for Underworld General Hospital (UGH) and for some reason Eidolon kind of looks like one of the doctors on General Hospital. What I enj ...more

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 b

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 betw

I won't say to much since this book hasn't been published but it was another great installment to this exciting series.
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.

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.

My absolute favourite of the series!

I just loved Revenant, he reminded me of Wraith, with all the snarky attitude and disregard of other people’s opinions. He is such a delicious bad-boy.

The romance between Revenant and Blaspheme was amazing and so intense, and I just loved how Revenant pursued Blaspheme, and all the outrageous things he said to her. I loved how Blaspheme stood up for Revenant, and I’m so glad they they got their HEA.

I really didn’t like Reaver in this book, and he really upset

This series is one of my favourite ever. I don't want it to end.I'm feeling both sad(because the series is over) and happy for their hea-s.
Anyway I really loved this book.

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

What a a great final book for this series! It was fun to see both UG and the Lords of Deliverance intersect so greatly.

I really liked Blaspheme! She is a doctor at UG and not a false angel, but a Verm, a half fallen half angel, apparently something both groups execute on sight. In order to survive she has to hide her true nature under a spell. She was smart, principled and acted like any sane person. She made mistakes but I felt like none were stupid and she owned up to them. She was able to co

Starting off at the intersection between two series, I was hoping I could keep up with the story, and not feel lost. I was eager to see why the fallen angel, Revenant, was beyond redemption, and what led to his downfall. And the author did not disappoint! There was enough back story so that this enchanting tale felt complete on its own. So, if you haven't read the other books in the series, don't let that stop you! Still, it's so well written, and such a fantastic tale, I recommend starting at t ...more

Superb writing from Larissa. The worldbuilding is incredible here and the characters explosive with their dialogue and actions. The sex scenes smolder, especially the first one. I'm surprised my fingers didn't burn the pages. if you're an Ione fan you will eat Revenant up.

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

Wow! What a read. I found myself laughing, crying, and at some points angry as hell. What a turbulent bout of emotions.
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.
