3,5 stars

The battle between good and evil continues in Immortal Rider, Larissa Ione’s 2nd book in her Lords of Deliverance Series.

Limo, Horsewoman of the Apocalypse and Arik Wagner, human, working or the US Army’s paranormal unit , are unable to fight the attraction they feel for each when they first meet – something that will have the most devastating repercussions in their lives.

What else can happen in Limos life? Not only is she fighting to keep her Seal from breaking, holding back secrets fr

This one star rating is not because the main plot but because of a sub plot that led to book #3 in the series. On it's own, this book was OK even if I found the business of unconditional love a bit dubious given what Limos had done..."so you were responsible for the death of my children? Of course I forgive you!!"

My main gripe with this book is that it had one of the most disgusting setups for a couple I've seen. I was so full of rage when I finished reading that I

This is one of the best books Larissa has written to date. I'm shocked by the sheer wonder of it all and how she can balance such darkness, snarkness from the characters and sexiness.

If you're dying to get your hands on a great paranormal romance that has a few zingers and pushes the envelope, which Larissa has done, you need to read this book.

The one disappointing thing was no upside down tree sex with the H/H like in the last book. I should mark the grade down for that alone, but since I bow a

Totally enjoyed this tale of Limos, the only female rider of the four horsemen of the apocalypse, and how she came to fall in love with Erik of the Aegis. Limos has the unfortunate circumstance of being betrothed to Satan (poor girl) and any time a man gets close to her, there are bad consequences. So when Erik tries to kiss her one night at a party, he is dragged down into the underworld and tortured.

A good chunk of the book focuses on PTSD and Erik’s recovery, which was interesting, and also

I still remember the first time I rode a horse which is synonymous as saying I still remember the time I almost died. That hellbeast ran riot across a large desert area surrounding a partially active volcano and laughed at my feeble attempts to summon help or stop his rampage.

What this earned for me was a year or two of riding lessons because where I grew up, riding lessons were the thing to do for proper young ladies. As there is nothing proper about me, you can be sure that I never progressed

"Hellooooo. I'm a Horseman of the Apocalypse, and I'm betrothed to the most infamous, most powerful demon in existence. I couldn't draw more attention to myself if I wore Lady Gaga's meat dress to a PETA convention.”

After Sin, we encounter another unlucky girl in the series. Limos may be one of the horsemen, all powerful and mighty and mistress of Famine, but she is unfortunately also Satan’s future bride.
This could be another example of a forced marriage; however Limos will not yield that

I’ve been waiting for months for Immortal Rider. I kept on stalking Larissa Ione’s blog, me being such a big fan and all, watching her news, avoiding spoilers and so on. Finally I managed to get the book and the time to read it.

The question of the day would be: Am I happy with this book? Was it everything I was hoping for? Did I do the happy dance after finishing it?

Barely 3 stars. It took me a couple days to finish this because I got bored. I stopped reading and had to force myself to pick this book back up and finish it.

I wasn't looking forward to this book anyway because neither of the main characters interested me. Limos came off bratty and flippant in the other books. Arik seemed super human and military. Limos stayed the same, but Arik improved.

I have been eagerly anticipating Arik Wagner’s book for a long time. I adored him in the Demonica series and now, with his own book, the hot human brother finally gets his chance to shine. So going into this book, I was already giddy because I would get some Arik action.

Enter Limos aka Famine, the only female horseman. Before she was even born, she was promised to the Dark Lord. Being unwillingly betrothed to Satan brings up a lot of problems. But when Arik can’t deny his attraction to Limos any

One of the things I like best about Larissa Ione is that her books are unpredictable. And there is always so much going on. And they are so freaking hot! (I guess that's more than one thing, but let me gush for a moment.) I enjoyed Eternal Rider, but it took me a little while to get into. Not the case here. This story reeled me in from the beginning and didn't let go.

No blurb this time 'round. I started Immortal Rider the day it came out and read the first hundred pages and put the book down. This Demonica spinoff and the Demonica books themselves have always had some darkness to them but this first part of book was filled with torture of the hero, violation of a continuing character, and more of Pestilence's depravity just tossed off in the background - I just got tired of being bludgeoned with how evil the bad guys were and set the book aside.

It's hard to enjoy a love story when you don't like the heroine or the hero. I rated this book a 2 because I outright disliked Limos and there was nothing special about Arik. This book would have been a solid 4 star if I could have cared if the main couple found love. Limos lies so much to everyone around her: her brothers, and Arik, the man she claims to love. She even kills Sartel to protect her lies because he was about to spill the beans. Arik made for a boring hero that I never connected wi ...more

And the plot thickens! Whew, I loved it and now I can't wait for the next.

In this second book, Limos is faced with her many past lies as they come back to haunt her. Long ago she made a deal with the devil, literally, and now those she has come to care about are going to learn of her lies unless she can stop those who threaten to reveal her secrets.

The Lords of Deliverance series gets even more complex and addictive in the second book. Although there’s still a primary romance, there’s a whole lot more going on, as those characters on the side of Evil work to bring about the Apocalypse and those on the side of Good work to prevent it.

Limos aka Famine, the sole female horseman of the Apocalypse, has two big problems: she’s betrothed to Satan, and she has some very ugly secrets she’s keeping from her brothers. When a human male named Arik kis

Larissa Ione once again show her class! Immortal Rider is one of her masterpiece who will make her readers have a blast ride! Fasten your seat belt, folks! The reason why I reduce it to 1/2 star, maybe because the ending I feel too "easy" and rushed. And can't wait for Than's book. Oh yea, bring it on, Paul Marron!!

Immortal Rider is Limos and Arik's story. Limos, aka Famine, is the third horseman (woman) of the Apocalypse. Arik is human and Rune's (from Demonica and Shade's wife) brother and works with human forces to stop the Apocalypse.

This book has so much going on that I don't even know where to start! It immediately begins with Arik kissing Limos and getting taken to Sheoul to be tortured into saying Limos' name. Limos has been betrothed to Satan and no one is allowed intimate relations with her. So,

Immortal Rider will take you on a paranormal ride from beginning to end. The action, the scheming with just the right amount of romance. You will not be bored with all the different things waiting for you in the Horsemen world.

IMMORTAL RIDER was a bit of a disappointment coming from a huge Larissa Ione fan. Don't get me wrong, I still loved the book, but aside from that there were quite a few disappointing happenings in IMMORTAL RIDER

Our heroine this time around was the sexy and badass, Limos who is one of the four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. Limos was the #1 reason why I did not dig this book so much. I found Limos incredibly selfish and she was caught in enough lies that she didn't know what to do with them all. Lim
Immortal Rider starts up about one month after the events of Eternal Rider. Once again, the reader is immersed in a world of angels and demons and a very determined horseman looking to bring on the apocalypse. Immortal Rider focuses on Limos, the only female horseman, er….horsewoman?

Limos is not an easy character to like. It is really difficult to feel any sympathy for her. Limos lies often and her lies cause a lot of strife among her siblings. Oh, and she has been promised to Satan – as his bri

Larissa Ione delivers humor, action, hot sexy times, and solid world-building in book 2 of her Lords of Deliverance series. This book was hard to put down. So many interesting developments in the story arc may Lethal Rider's June release seem so far away.

So awesome you feel like what you are reading is really happening, and if you were to look out your window or turn on the news you would see pestilences diseases coursing through humans, and Demons roaming free.

I loved the Demonica series, every book was a 5 star read for me. Then I started with Lords of Deliverance and I didn’t like the first book as much. It was still great, but the world building dragged a bit. Well, Immortal Rider was right back on track. I loved it.

Limos was an interesting character. She was actually raised in Hell as a demon and pure evil. The love for her brothers eventually changed her to good, but for most of her life she’s been lying to the people she
