He is the Keeper of Souls. Judge, jury, and executioner. He is death personified.
He is the Grim Reaper.
A fallen angel who commands the respect of both Heaven and Hell, Azagoth has presided over his own underworld realm for thousands of years. As the overlord of evil souls, he maintains balance crucial to the existence of life on Earth an ...more
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 ...more
“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 ...more
For love, he’ll watch the world burn.
For revenge, he’ll light the match.
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. So when I saw that Azagoth will be getting another book, I don' ...more
So the end is nigh or a least the closing curtain on this part of this fantastic saga, ready for future story-arcs to develop and my god this was amped right up to the maximum.
This was action-packed edge of your seat momentum all the way.
So this was multiples POV's Focusing on many individuals we have come to know and love throughout this roller-coaster of a series.
It's the ultimate pinnacle of all we have been working towards and been gradually building up to and things will definitely get wors ...more
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!
This book is the culmination of the Demonica series so far – finishing off the story arc that w ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
I received this book for free from Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
I've been teased by the many novellas taking us into the Demonica world the last few years and was ecstatic when I saw that we were getting a full length book in this world. I was even more excited when I saw that it was going to center around Azagoth. What I wasn't prepared for was the emotional roller coaster this book would take me on. There w
‘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.
“All I ask is tha ...more
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 ...more
Wew..talk 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 ...more
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.
(view spoiler)[I couldn't believe when Wraith, Journey and Maddox died, how c ...more
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.
The intrigue and ...more
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 ...more
“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.”...more
“With this, you’ll have the power to destroy and create. And your name,” 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.”

It's the end. Yeah, my favorite series has come to an end. Why is that a delight? Because Larissa Ione does it such flair that left me satisfied, tired, happy, sad, and so many emotions that I call this an awesome book!
A little before the review...
It's sad that we have reached the end of one series with three spin-offs or thre ...more
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.
Azagoth & Lilliana are getting their story told in a full novel. I just can't...
