Descent is the 6th installment of The Four Horsemen series.

It was an okay kind of book, not my favorite though. Vee and the guys are still dealing with some type of drama. I'm hoping that they will all find happiness in the next book. However, this book was just meh. I feel like I liked some things and disliked a whole bunch.

I don't know if it's just me or what.. but what was with Syv in this book? I feel like she had zero purpose in this one.. and idk, something else was just wrong with this b

This has to be the most hardest of all to review.
Descent is part 6, and has been the most intense, nail biting, gripping, and full out shocking instalment so far. I was completely floored countless times.

Vee and the boys are not only closer to each other, but now closer to finding out what on earth is going on. Everything has gone mad, and nobody knows what to expect next. There are now more people getting involved and trying to help out, and it's so full on you can't even stop to pee. Never m
"Does Seth exist in history?"
"He’s in a lot of religions. I looked him up after he revealed himself. Seth took his name from the Egyptian Chaos god, Set, although he’s much older than that. He could just have easily chosen Roman, Greek, Celt...anything."

You think I’m obsessed with thoughts of Hell and God? Believe me, that’s nothing compared to the obsession I have with you right now. - Joss

The Romance Book Disciple (Samantha)

Descent is the continuation of the The Four Horsemen and Truth, aka Vee. The last book left us with quite a cliffhanger so I was more than ready for this one! Descent jumps in right where Chaos left off-The gang in Scotland and they now know who their enemy is.

Chaos isn't present much in the story. Descent sees an unlikely union between Ripley (a demon), the Collector, the Horsemen and Vee, and Logan (the Fae). None of them cares much for the others, but since Chaos is planning to destroy the w

Counting down to the end...

The characters are coming together in preparation for battle like chess pieces on a board. Lines are drawn, and those who were thought to be strong in their defence of the Portals are scattered like ashes to the four winds. Chaos might still be playing games, but they are getting more serious and even deadlier.

However, Vee and the Four Horsemen still stand strong while Syv, The Collector, and the rest of the Alliance scrabble for clues and artefacts to unravel the secr

Another great instalment in the Four Horsemen series however I did feel that this was a bittersweet read for me as I know that this is the penultimate book and I'm not sure if I'm ready to say goodbye to Vee and the Pony Boys yet.
I did enjoy Descent. The story is really picking up the pace now, especially after the explosive finale of the last book. Descent picks right back up where Chaos finished. There are more Truths revealed and secrets uncovered, some which really had me gasping in shock an

Descent is book six in The Four Horsemen series. We find some surprises, some scenes that had my heart racing, and tension is high. I have found that as the series progresses so does the building of suspense, the what the heck is going on, and bond between the main characters. I have to say that so far Descent is my favorite of the series, because of all the tension and non stop, edge of your seat world fixing to end action. Vee is stronger than ever with her men, their bond is growing. Really e ...more

Descent is the 6th book in the Horsemen series and I’m wailing because the series will soon be over. I absolutely love Vee and her men. I am so wrapped up in the world Ms. Swallow has invented. When I’m reading her books, reality goes away and I am fully immersed in her “Horsemen” world.
We finally find out Chaos’ true intentions and what he wants from Vee. We also find out more about who Vee is and who sent her, although a lot of questions still remain. To defeat Chaos, Vee and the guys have to

An intense read!

Will Vee bring the apocalypse the Four Horsemen were sent to stop...
Or is she here to prevent a world destroyed by chaos?

This part of the series shows our MC and her guys dealing with some revelations and searching for answers to help handle what is to come their way. This book has a bit of action and of course steam but most of it is dealing with figuring out what they need to do in order to prepare for what is next. It was nice to see more of Syv in the mix and Vee definitely needed a bit of girl time! I am definitely interested to see how all parties are going to handle everything to come, which allies will be ...more

OMG! My heart cannot take the excitement! Things are really hotting up for Vee and the Pony Boys. You can feel the love between them all stronger then ever, their relationships entwine even more

We are on the way to the end of the series and the excitement and danger is growing building anticipation. We learn a lot in this book and I am so incredibly excited for the showdown between great of and evil, between chaos and truth. This book had me on the edge of my seat, glued to them page and squeali
Descent is the 6th book in this series and I enjoyed it more than the last couple of installments. I liked the flow of the events in this book, and was grateful for the romantic elements to break up the heavier mythology of the ongoing urban fantasy mystery. I find The Collector to be an intriguing secondary character and though I wasn't feeling Syv from her previous appearances, I definitely saw some potential in stories that would feature these two after reading this book. Xander continues to ...more

Oh WOW!!! I was pulled in from the beginning! Fabulous paranormal/fantasy world, I absolutely love this series of books, the action starts slowly and builds, The characters are well defined early on and blossom throughout the series, you can feel the tension building between the main characters early in the series which develop wonderfully as each book progresses. Very well written storey. There are no cliff hangers as such but each book always leaves you wanting more so be warned though once yo ...more

After the last book left everything hanging, this book is a little better. Where the plot is concerned, we’re getting to the crux of the matter with who Vee is and what she’s supposed to be doing. And while she and the guys are trying to comes to terms with it, Vee is also trying to come to terms with what the new developments mean for her relationships with all of the guys. It’s one of the ways I don’t envy Vee - working on one relationship is hard for most people. She’s got it four times harde ...more

Descent into the depths of uncertainty ; their home destroyed, they barely escaped with their lives, and they find out that Vee is supposed to kill Chaos but what happens next is beyond their comprehension!

Lisa had me hooked from book#1. I don't know how she does it but each book just keeps getting better than the last one. I can't wait for the next book to come out although I am sad that it will be the last one. You really need to read this series; you won't be disappointed !!

Six books in and LJ Swallow still captivates my interest with Descent. From the very start she takes me on a wild ride, never knowing where it will end. I love all of the pony boys as well as Vee. Their compassion for one another and combustible chemistry have burrowed their way deep into my heart and I never want to let go.

I know this is rather vague, but this series must be read in order. It is a must read series. I am dying to know how this story will end. The next book cannot come fast enou

Well that was the most heartbreaking book of the series so far! All of the feels!
Continuing on the four horsemen & Vee as they discover the enormity of the threat they're facing & discover how they are to face Chaos. There is a switch in roles when it comes to their relationships & you discover a different side of some of the men, while Vee struggles to come to terms with what she has become. Another well written book of love fear and challenge! Can't wait for the next (& final)

Brilliant series

I devoured the rest of the series over a couple of days and had to wait a week to read this one, which I've practically read in one sitting it's that good.
I absolutely adore the characters in these books, the author Lisa is a wizard with words as she makes you feel everything that's going on in the story just like magic. She is a fabulous story teller, and I think anyone who reads this will be put under the 5 horseman's spell as well!!

Like all the books in this series this is a great continuation of the story about Vee and her guys! In this book we see them get so much closer but this book is really building to the conclusion of this series! Not only do we have a book with action there is also so much emotion between them all. I can’t talk too much about the book as I don’t want to spoil it...but I love how Lisa as given Vee some girl time in this book and I can’t wait to see more of Syv in future books!

I hope the half promise that this is the end of the series. I wept and I clapped. I scared to poop out of my husband because I was clapping and crying at 4 am! Of many of the RH series, there tends to be one kind or another of hero. LJ Covers all the tropes from sweet, darling but hiding a very naughty side Joss to ever brooding Ewan to one temper tantrum to needing his own spanking War and Heath, who is sort of all of them put together. I hope we have more adventures and that we find out who th ...more

I couldn't wait for this book to be available. It was worth the wait. I just picked up where it was left from the last book. I loved how it just came togeher in one place. I felt the best part of the book was the unexpected help of the hell hound being a great help to the horsemen and Vee. I can't wait to see how they take down Seth as Chaos and find out will Vee be destroyed along with Chaos as it's been foretold in the prophesy that the Collector read for them.

Vee and the Pony Boys are in for an adventure, between trying to find a stone, figuring out what the book says and staying alive, they have their hands full! Chaos is reigns in this book. Heartbreak abounds and more mystery awaits, Syv tries her best to help along with a very adorable and strange pet ! This is another great book in the series, be prepared to cry and be angry ! I would absolutely recommend this series !

This series cannot end, it is too good! LJ keeps impressing me with the twists and turns she includes in her Four Horsemen series. I am nervous about the last book coming out, bittersweet to say the least 😭.

We get more answers in Book 6 of the series, but left wanting to know more/on the edge of our seat for how LJ is going to tie up this story. I had a clear favorite almost this entire series but another one is giving him a run for his money. I highly recommend this series, pick it up now!

Wonderful series!

An amazing roller coaster of emotions and adventure! I’ve really enjoyed the evolution of these characters and their relationship we the main female heroine. I look forward to seeing how their Love transcends the Gods and possibly the apocalypse! I love this steamy action packed adventure! I highly recommend this book to any and all open minded person who wouldn’t mind a reverse harem .

This will be a difficult review to write with no spoilers. It was really good. A twist I did not see coming but probably should have suspected given the nature of this series. 😆Really well written and will keep you on the edge of your seat. It's hard to put down. LJ likes these cliffers! Can't wait for the next one!!!

I have really enjoyed this book. Descent ties up most of the questions I had and made most other things make sense. There is plenty of action. Vee and her pony boys I just love.

Seth OMG... He is just awesome. I found myself spontaneously laughing at his childish silliness.

Fab book straight onto the next for me.
