Screaming fangirl on the loose!!!!

Such a great great GREAT book. I am not sure from where to start!

First of all if you are a fan of this series, YOU DO NOT WANT TO MISS THIS BOOK. Although it is mainly a story about Azagoth and his heavily pregnant wife Lilliana, you will soon realise that it is also a reunion of your favourite characters. Everybody is there.

And I have to say here that once more I have realised that if I needed to marry a paranormal guy, this should have been a tough decision be

Don't fear the reaper,fear the monster inside!

“I just want you to know that you’re my life,” he said. “Without you, I’m a monster.” “And what are you with me?” He gave her a rare, boyish grin, made even more playful by his mop of bedhead. “A happy monster.”

Holy shit!!!! Larissa went deep for this wrap up book from the demonica series!!! For the first time in along time I wanted to skip ahead to the end because I was so worried about how Azagoth's story would end. I have loved this character from

Holy christ on a cracker, that was intense!!! Wowza!

Admittedly I'm not a fan of additional books for characters that have already received their HEA, no matter how much I loved them. But that rule of mine goes out the window when Larissa Ione writes one. See, her and I have an understanding. If she writes it, I read it. Period. No exceptions.

OMGOMGOMG!! What a fantastic read! Azagoth's story had me on the edge of my seat from start to finish. And I'm sure my heart stopped a few times along the way. Wow, what an adventure! Full of action, excitement, romance, suspense, heartbreaking lows and dizzying highs, set within an incredible paranormal world. It was everything I was hoping it would be, and I freaking loved it!

Holy cow! This was an incredible wrap up of the on-going plots in the Demonica world. As the head man in charge of Sheoul-Gra, Azagoth, aka the Grim Reaper, and his mate Lilliana ae up against an unknown enemy out to destroy them and their unborn child. There were so many feelings in this story that I don’t know where to begin. Anger, immense sadness, shock, disbelief are all present and accounted for in this page turner. Azagoth is a charming jerk in the best possible way, while Lilliana is fun ...more

I was elated to see that this author was finally coming out with a new full sized novel. However, when I saw the title, and read the synopsis I couldn’t help but be disappointed. I have been a fan of this series for a LONG time, but I feel it is stagnating. Larissa hasn’t come out with anything actually new in so long, I have lost interest in both this author and this series. The 1001 Dark Nights novellas are just not cutting it for me any more. This novel has literally already been written! I a ...more

I actually read this almost immediately upon release. It's just taken a bit for me to work up the passion for a review. Because I'm a bit on the fence.

Once again with this author's books I read it pretty much in one sitting.

Azagoth's love story began in a novella and it was a good one. I remembered it well and that's saying something. But I had a problem with the further telling in that the use of his loved ones as leverage against him- felt kinda worn. Every superhero has had the same battle w

Larissa Ione’s Demonica series is one of my favourite paranormal romance series. It’s such a vast world, with so much to love and enjoy, and I was excited when I saw there was another full-length novel coming out. For a while, it has been short stories. As I’m not a lover of short stories, I have not been keeping up to date with the series.

I believe my three-star rating reflects this. To understand Reaper, you really need to have read everything in the Demonica world. Sure, you get enough inform

‘There, on the edge of Lilliana’s pond, he lost it, knowing that nothing would ever be the same.’

Larissa Ione has been one of my favourite paranormal authors since I first picked up one of her books back in 2009. It seems only fitting that ten years later I’m finishing with Reaper. Whilst it’s been a long time since my last Demonica read, I didn’t find that it hampered my enjoyment, rather I felt like I was coming home to a world that is forever embedded in my heart and soul.

Have you read a book that as you are reading it it's so exciting that you keep putting it down and then picking it back up and continue reading it?

You know those books that get you all worked up and you feel like you are part of the story so much that you both can't stop looking (reading) and must walk away at the same time. That's how this book was for me. I don't often give five stars for a book

I liked this book. There was a lot going on that kept my interest. I will note it almost felt like an end to the series and maybe it was, but I was left with some questions about the one guy that died (I’ll say no more for spoilers). We got some answers but not all. So was this the end of the series????
Jen (That's What I'm Talking About)
When I heard that Reaper is the final book of the Demonica World, I knew I had to read it, so I jumped at the chance to review the audiobook (I’ve only read the books before this). Reaper is the culmination of the Demonica Underworld story arc featuring the various players of, well… the Underworld. And while Azagoth had a novella with HEA/FN earlier in the series, his roll as the Grim Reaper is central to the upheaval that is occurring in the Underworld. This story is much more than a romance - ...more

4,5 stars about an INTENSE book. Larissa Ione didn't hold back. At all.

But first, I want to address that despite its blurb, REAPER is NOT a rewrite version of AZAGOTH novella. Both have different story. AZAGOTH tell how Azagoth and Lilliana's relationship start, a novella that introduced both characters even Azagoth already play some integral part in Demonica and Lords of Deliverance series. REAPER is a culmination of what happen when Lilliana agreed to become Azagoth mate and live

I just finished REAPER and - wow, oh wow - my God, so good!

It's the end of August and I give 5 stars for the first time this year to 2 books in the same week; "Reaper" definetely deserves all the stars. It was dark and so touching, all of it. All that angst because of Lilliana's disappearance, what Moloch did, what Azagoth must do, and everything else. Jeez, what a book! It had me crying every day it took me to read it.

I was so eager and distressed going into this novel knowing it’s also the end of the Demonica series.

I was also excited to have cameos from Eidolon, Shade and Wraith! I’ve missed them so much and it only fits. This series started with them and it makes sense that they would be there as it all comes to its end.

The action starts from the very beginning and it had me electrified and giddy throughout the book! Words like “holy shit”, “WTH?!” and “OMG!!!” ran rampant through my mind.

Just wow.

I have to be honest here.

I loved it.


Firstly, you absolutely MUST read the author's note at the beginning of the book or you are going to be mad at first and possibly not finish the book.

It's THAT important.

You really, really need to read that author's note where our beloved author asks us to trust her while reading Reaper.

It wasn't long before I figured out why.

I cannot tell you why without spoiling most of
“Let me get this straight,” Asrael said quietly. “You want me to fuck an entire race of beings into existence, create another race to collect souls, and torture evil demons?” Gabriel sighed. “That’s an accurate—if crude—summary.”

Gabriel called out, “is an angelic word that hearkens back to the negotiations with Satan over the great harvest of souls in the prophesized End of Days.”

Such a fantastic “conclusion”! I loved being back in this world and Azagoth is one of the best characters. Very emotional and stressful read (get that glass of wine like Larissa suggests) but full of action and the vivid world Larissa has created. I missed Demonica and I was happy to be back. I also waited on the last few novellas so I had those to read and then Reaper. I liked that since all those characters and storylines linked into Reaper - especially Cipher.

Hmm. What can I say? I felt the tension was lacking. The pacing felt so slow without some credible the tension. “Reaper” was also a grim story that can’t stand alone. I’ve read most of the Demonic books, but Azagoth’s romance happened in his novella. I skipped Cipher’s novella and felt like I missed some major background information. This book was too easy to put down. Meh.

A very good ending to the Demonica/Lords of Deliverance/Demonica Underworld series.

There was a battle of epic proportions and I liked every moment of it. Almost every character we know and love had an appearance. The book was full of twists, suspense and I dreaded that someone was going to die.

Judging by the end, we are going to get a new series featuring children being all grown up.

It's been a while since I had delved back into this world of characters and drama, and this book had mention of pretty much everyone in the series to date. I was happy to revisit the characters I had enjoyed in past books. I struggled some with Azagoth and Lilliana because I haven't read their origin story.

And this is the part where I complain a little. This is my own issue, but I am someone who typically does not enjoy reading short stories and/or novellas. I just don't. Never have. Honestly,
