    I begin my review, I have to tell you I am a bit biased when it comes to this book You see, I was the winner of the name a character and book dedication prize Larissa had offered in a charity auction back in March of 2011 Originally is was to have the book dedicated to the winner and name a minor character in either the third or fourth book in this series but Larissa, being the amazingly kick ass person she is, gave me the option to wait and nam I begin my review, I have to tell you I am a bit biased when it comes to this book You see, I was the winner of the name a character and book dedication prize Larissa had offered in a charity auction back in March of 2011 Originally is was to have the book dedicated to the winner and name a minor character in either the third or fourth book in this series but Larissa, being the amazingly kick ass person she is, gave me the option to wait and name the heroine of this book After pinching myself to be sure I wasn t dreaming and jumping around my house while screaming like a loon, I obviously chose to wait and picked my own name for Reseph s heroine This book holds a special place in my heart, not only for having a truly amazing personal story behind it, but because it lived up to every possible expectation I had And so, without further delay, here is my review..This is the fourth book in Ms Ione s Lords of Deliverance series and is Reseph s story.Pestilence had finally been stopped Through the efforts of Reseph s family, he had been ended with a fatal blow to the heart with Deliverance, a thousands year old dagger thought to be the only weapon powerful enough to use against the Horsemen Only Reseph wasn t exactly dead Pestilence may be gone for now but Reseph was in Sheoul gra trapped in a prison not only made of stone, but prison in his own mind being terrorized by the horrific memories of what Pestilence had done Memories of death and torture, and knowing that his hands did it all, were proving to be to most horrific punishment imaginable A punishment that Reaver, their heavenly watcher, couldn t stand to see Reaver knew Reseph and he knew that Reseph was worthy of a second chance.and he decided right then that he was going to give Reseph that chance no matter what the consequences were.Jillian Cardiff is trying to get past the nightmare she left behind After a horrific demon attack that nearly left her for dead, and being let down by the man she loved, the solitary life she leads now was a welcome escape All she needed was her animals and the snowy mountains until she literally stumbles across an injured stranger in the snow and decides that she can t turn her back on him.After nursing the stranger back to health, he awakens to find he has no memory of whom he is or how he came to be buried in snow in the mountains of Colorado Together they will have this mystery to solve and together they will have to heal one another of the emotional scars they both have endured and learn to be resilient once again.I know what some of you may be thinking You re thinking that there is no way Reseph deserves a chance at redemption and he should rot in Sheoul gra where he belongs From the very beginning I disagreed with that and I knew that if anyone can change the minds of the naysayers, it was Ms Ione From the very beginning of this story, we get to see the untainted Reseph, thanks to his amnesia The man who is playful and cheeky despite his lack of memory the man who clearly would have never done anything that had been done when Pestilence had been at the wheel This is the man who his siblings had been fighting to save since the very beginning His journey has so many facets self loathing, retribution, self discovery, acceptance and forgiveness It was both heart breaking and heart warming to watch his struggle.Jillian s journey was equally as fascinating She has had her share of heartbreak and despair that has led her to build up walls that no ordinary man will be able to penetrate Thankfully, Respeh isn t ordinary in any sense of the word I cannot express how much I loved this book I finished it in 24 hours because I just had to see what happened next I laughed, I cried, I got weird looks at the dentist for my audible gasps Ms Ione created such memorable characters and the moments that they share are ones that readers won t soon forget The emotions from Reseph and Jillian practically leap off of the page This was the absolute perfect ending to Pestilence and beginning to Reseph Thank you, Ms Ione, for an unforgettable story and for being the amazing author and storyteller that you are

    Finally..we have Reseph s story After being the most malevolent and evil character in the previous 3 books, I was questioning how the author would be able to turn him into an endearing romantic hero that I could bond with as much as I have done with the other three Horsemen Boy, did she do it We discover the real Reseph that his siblings always spoke about.the laid back, loving, caring and fun person and who ever guessed a poet living inside him forget Lord Byron, John Keats Finally..we have Reseph s story After being the most malevolent and evil character in the previous 3 books, I was questioning how the author would be able to turn him into an endearing romantic hero that I could bond with as much as I have done with the other three Horsemen Boy, did she do it We discover the real Reseph that his siblings always spoke about.the laid back, loving, caring and fun person and who ever guessed a poet living inside him forget Lord Byron, John Keats Reseph s words are sheer poetry Reseph is mysteriously found naked and unconscious in the woods by Jillian Cardiff She s been hiding since being attacked by demons and though she s hesitant at first, takes him into her home.When he wakes up, he has no memory of who he is But as time passes, they begin to grow close together and fall in love He doesn t know why he s appeared in Jillian s life, but he knows that he wants to be with her But what happens when his memory returns Will it change their feelings Despite those worries, they decide that their bond will overcome anything that happens in the future.carpe Diem But soon evil enters their peaceful life.demons attack Jillian s next door neighbors and when demon hunters turn up he knows that Jillian s life is in danger He refuses to leave her alone So, Jillian is not a weakling.she faces up to her fears and danger And when Reseph s memories return and he finds out the horrors he has caused when he was controlled by Pestilence.he doubts if he can ever redeem himself will he be able to fix all the bad and wrong things he s done in the past And how can Jillian still love him when she discovers that part of him Jillian turned out to be a heroine of worth She had loved and trusted him before she knew of his past and that was never going to change She knew the real Reseph She would make any sacrifice, do anything to help Reseph overcome the danger and evil demons that were determined to destroy the goodness inside of him and like Reseph lyrically told her she will help him put things right, help him with gaining his family s trust again and ultimately help him stop the Apocalypse.The romance between Reseph and Jillian was sweet, delightful.but hey, don t worry.steamy too.the sex scenes were pretty sexy and sensual their chemistry was intensely deep and I was happy that we finally have Reseph back the lovable and fun person..and that he has found peace and love in his life.Lords of Deliverance is an incredible and engaging series and the author has created captivating characters, heroic heroes, unique and vivid worlds that make it a thrilling and enjoyable read.This book wraps up the stories of the Horsemen but with the next book being about Reaver who has played a large part in the four books and wicked Harvester am sure we will be seeingof Ares, Limos, Thanatos, Reseph and their families again.Can t wait My favorite quote

    I absolutely hated HATED HATED Reseph Pestilence in the previous books When his seal was broken, he became the worst enemy of the humankind spreading various horrible diseases all over the world and killing millions of people Horrible deaths Rogue Rider is the book about his redemption In the last book, he has disappeared from the face of earth In this book he has no memory, no name, no past Since he used to be a good guy before he became the most evil creature on Earth, the loss of his mem I absolutely hated HATED HATED Reseph Pestilence in the previous books When his seal was broken, he became the worst enemy of the humankind spreading various horrible diseases all over the world and killing millions of people Horrible deaths Rogue Rider is the book about his redemption In the last book, he has disappeared from the face of earth In this book he has no memory, no name, no past Since he used to be a good guy before he became the most evil creature on Earth, the loss of his memory is a blessing He will not like himself when he remembers who he used to be.So, when Jillian finds him naked and unconscious near to her isolated home and takes him in, he does not really try too hard to remember Especially when the two of them starting falling in loveCan you handle not knowing who I was Can you deal with the man I am now Yes, she whispered in a husky rasp Oh, yes Good, he said, lowering his mouth to her throat Because the man I am now is who I want to be Forever You may say that Jillian is a bit too compliant and innocent in the beginning She does not really think of the fact that she was attacked by a Demon before and that now she wants to be left alone and forget She falls in love too fast, without knowing anything about the past of this beautiful stranger But Reseph before he became Pestilence, used to be the most lovable of the four horsemen He has a gift with words, he knows how to love to be tender, and he knows how to make someone feel unique And he really likes Jillian Naturally his past will come and find him even at this isolated place Jillian will soon find out that there is something worse than the demon that hunts her And that is the Master of all Demons.The book is full of revelations for the four horsemen and the people around them We learn Who is the four horsemen s daddy Who is Harvester s daddyThe book isabout forgiveness, acceptance and romance and less about epic battlesI feel like I m finally whole I m five thousand years old, he rasped But the day you found me in the woods, that s when my life started After I finished it, I cannot really say that I totally forgave Reseph But I think I have accepted a little his actions

believe.Rogue Rider is one of those stories that if you re like me, a big baby, you ll be sobbing your heart out at every turn of the page It s no surprise I m a HUGE Larissa Ione fan, so maybe I m a little biased when it comes to reviewing Rogue Rider But there is no mistaking the talent Larissa Ione has for her world building, story telling, and abosolutely amazing characters I became a fan of Larissa in 2011 when I began reading Pleasure Unbound and fell madly in love w her Daemonica series, which features Sex Demons running an Underworld Hospital How HOT is that By the end of Demonica, I was devasted, but soon after found out Ione wasn t even close to being done w her world And so, the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse were introduced From the beginning of the series in Eternal Rider, we find out that Reseph s seal has broken, and he is the first of the Horsemen to become trully and unspeakably evil What my concern was throughout the whole series was, how can Larissa Ione redeem Reseph, or as he was known throughout the series, Pestilence There is no way the grotesquely evil being could be redeemed, at least not in my eyes, but Reseph Reseph s heartbreaking pleas to end his life, in the seconds he was able to break through to his brothers and sister, they completely won me over Maybe I m some sort of masochist, but I loved Reseph as the villain in this series God but Pestilence was beyond brutal Not borderline asshole, no, he made assholes look like loveable kittens I was skeptical about Reseph s book too How would she turn an evil being into a loving man Oh, but the end of Lethal Rider shocked us all I m sure The one thing I ll say I hated so much about Rogue Rider is that the key players of the Demonica world were missing, save for Kynan whom I love But I understood, this story was about Reseph s healing Still, I would have loved to see the characters and catch up with them And okay, I ll admit, I would also have loved to have seenaction than suspense, but the Apocalypse had been averted, there wasn t much to fight about Jillian Cardiff was a refreshing heroine Strong and independent, determined not to depend on any man but definitely not immune to a sexy stranger who shows her compassion like she s never known before Having survied a demon attack during the chaos that had ensued three months earlier, Jillian has isolated herself from the world But all that changes one evening when she rescues a sexy naked stranger on the snowbank I loved how her and Reseph s relationship developed slowly Yes, she was instantly attracted to him, who wouldn t be , but she didn t give in to his sexual innuendos She got to know him first, which is always a plus in my book And wow, finding out about her demon attack was brutal and heartbreaking This woman is a fighter, and I loved her for Reseph Reseph s character was awesome We d read about how before his seal broke, Reseph was the playfull Horseman The one who was always happy and making sure everyone was taken care of, and of course, that he was the whore of the quartet xD Smh, THIS was the Reseph I was dying to meet Strong, lethal, playful and funny What a sexy combination Oh his story is shattering. from the hurt he feels when Jillian leaves him, to the pain and misery he puts himself through when he recovers his memories I know a simple apology will never make up for the hurt he d put his loved ones, and the world through, but you d think his family would understand a little better What an interesting turn of events regarding the Horsemen s watchers, the angels and demons, and all that s in between There were so many lose ends tied up in this book, but the question everyone is dying to know still remains, WHAT ON EARTH happened to Yenrieth..I m sad to hear this will be the last of the Deliverance books, but I cannot wait to reread this series and fall in love all over again _ARC provided by Grand Central Publishing via NetgalleyWhat REALLY happened the morning of September 14th, when I received Rogue Rider view spoiler So I wake up Friday morning to a phone call from work, apparently my shifts got cancelled this weekend. and it s been a pretty shitty week, so

understand that Larissa Ione is one of my favorite authors, and that her Daemonica world is by far one of my favorite in the PNR genre She s one of my go to authors so of course, I drop everything else to read her books Just about every emotion was wrenched out of me while reading about Reseph Jillian I couldn t control myself..Reseph naked in the snow OMG, She leaves him o x Gasp Oh no, HE

his siblings Will make Lore and Sin bonding with the Sem brothers look like cake UPDATE Actual Review Originally posted on Confessions of an Opinionated Book Geek Rogue Rider is the book that every fan of the Lords of Deliverance series has been waiting for From the first moment Pestilence st I can only imagine how awesome this book is going to be With everything he s done as pestilence I can imagine what his falling in love and having to atone for his sins Then having to make up with his siblings Will make Lore and Sin bonding with the Sem brothers look like cake UPDATE Actual Review Originally posted on Confessions of an Opinionated Book Geek Rogue Rider is the book that every fan of the Lords of Deliverance series has been waiting for From the first moment Pestilence struck out at his siblings, redemption seemed impossible and reconciliation was unspeakable How could they possibly forgive him for the things that he has done As the series progressed and we got into the heads of Ares, Limos and Thantanos we learnedof whom Pestilence was before his seal broke Before he was Pestilence, he was their brother He was the charismatic, loyal and fun loving Reseph In the eyes of his siblings, he was the best of them The one they could rely on, the one who knew their secrets It s why he was the most interesting Horseman to make a villain With everything I learned about Reseph, another idea began to occur to me The question is not how his siblings could forgive him the question is how Reseph can possibly forgive himself.Larissa Ione is very good at making a bad boy, good In her Demonica series, the youngest Sem brother, Wraith is the hugest mess up He is irresponsible, rash and extremely sarcastic Somehow the baby brother seminous demon is the catalyst that saves the world With this knowledge of Ione s storytelling skills, I expected a really great story for Reseph I waited for this book with baited breath and couldn t wait to get it on my nook.While I have some issues with this book, as a whole, Ione did not disappoint The story begins with Reseph He is out in the snow, he is naked and he has no idea who he is My initial reaction was, NO I want to see him face to face with his siblings And where is Kyan and Arik, where are our supporting characters Fortunately, Larissa Ione had a very specific plan She separated Reseph and her readers from the other characters and all the baggage from the first three books It allows us to momentarily forget that Reseph has Pestilence deep inside him Without the nonstop hatred of the other characters, it is easy to forget Pestilence The first third of the book just focuses on Reseph, Jillian and the small two streetlight town where Reseph begins his new life It s actually a brilliant approach I got to leave the baggage at the door and fall in love with Reseph.The first third of this book is very calm There are some grizzly deaths and of course the suspicion of the amnesiac Reseph is there, but for the most part it reads like a contemporary romance where the world just happens to be populated by demons Then it hits the fan Supporting characters come back, the aegis is once again plotting and Reseph s past returns to haunt him.Experiencing Reseph s guilt is extremely difficult On the one hand you know that as Pestilence he did some horrible things and deserves to be punished On the other hand, you know that Pestilence and Respeh or not the same people You re suddenly placed in the shoes of his family To forgive him or to let him suffer Redeem him or condemn him In the midst of all this the fight for good vs evil continues and there is a love story Jillian is a really typical Paranormal Romance heroine She is scarred, she is alone and she stumbles across a man who draws her in as much as he terrifies her Jillian has some deep secrets of her own that could throw a wrench in her budding relationship with the damaged Horseman Still, I liked Jillian She was as vulnerable as she was strong She was also extremely loyal and willing to take risks, even as she feared her heart being broken.The reason this is a 4 star review and not a 5, unfortunately is the ending It s just too quick and things happen a bit too easily Things get really really bad Like, the end of heaven, hell and everything in between, bad Then they come up with a plan in 5 seconds, there s a bit of skirmish and it s all over The actual end of conflict, happens so fast, I had re read the section I thought I missed something It gave me whiplash Then everything is resolved and we re just waiting for the next book The ending just didn t satisfy me I don t feel as if the tale is done Obviously, there is a fifth book coming, but still this particular installment should feel closed.Beyond that, I enjoyed this book I love the Lord of Deliverance world and am excited to finally read Reaver s book So much is revealed about him in Rogue Rider, but still not enough I want to know everything about his past, why he lost his wings and why they stripped his memory from him I cannot wait for the fifth installment, unfortunately it s coming out in a year

    I begin my review, I have to tell you I am a bit biased when it comes to this book You see, I was the winner of the name a character and book dedication prize Larissa had offered in a charity auction back in March of 2011 Originally is was to have the book dedicated to the winner and name a minor character in either the third or fourth book in this series but Larissa, being the amazingly kick ass person she is, gave me the option to wait and nam I begin my review, I have to tell you I am a bit biased when it comes to this book You see, I was the winner of the name a character and book dedication prize Larissa had offered in a charity auction back in March of 2011 Originally is was to have the book dedicated to the winner and name a minor character in either the third or fourth book in this series but Larissa, being the amazingly kick ass person she is, gave me the option to wait and name the heroine of this book After pinching myself to be sure I wasn t dreaming and jumping around my house while screaming like a loon, I obviously chose to wait and picked my own name for Reseph s heroine This book holds a special place in my heart, not only for having a truly amazing personal story behind it, but because it lived up to every possible expectation I had And so, without further delay, here is my review..This is the fourth book in Ms Ione s Lords of Deliverance series and is Reseph s story.Pestilence had finally been stopped Through the efforts of Reseph s family, he had been ended with a fatal blow to the heart with Deliverance, a thousands year old dagger thought to be the only weapon powerful enough to use against the Horsemen Only Reseph wasn t exactly dead Pestilence may be gone for now but Reseph was in Sheoul gra trapped in a prison not only made of stone, but prison in his own mind being terrorized by the horrific memories of what Pestilence had done Memories of death and torture, and knowing that his hands did it all, were proving to be to most horrific punishment imaginable A punishment that Reaver, their heavenly watcher, couldn t stand to see Reaver knew Reseph and he knew that Reseph was worthy of a second chance.and he decided right then that he was going to give Reseph that chance no matter what the consequences were.Jillian Cardiff is trying to get past the nightmare she left behind After a horrific demon attack that nearly left her for dead, and being let down by the man she loved, the solitary life she leads now was a welcome escape All she needed was her animals and the snowy mountains until she literally stumbles across an injured stranger in the snow and decides that she can t turn her back on him.After nursing the stranger back to health, he awakens to find he has no memory of whom he is or how he came to be buried in snow in the mountains of Colorado Together they will have this mystery to solve and together they will have to heal one another of the emotional scars they both have endured and learn to be resilient once again.I know what some of you may be thinking You re thinking that there is no way Reseph deserves a chance at redemption and he should rot in Sheoul gra where he belongs From the very beginning I disagreed with that and I knew that if anyone can change the minds of the naysayers, it was Ms Ione From the very beginning of this story, we get to see the untainted Reseph, thanks to his amnesia The man who is playful and cheeky despite his lack of memory the man who clearly would have never done anything that had been done when Pestilence had been at the wheel This is the man who his siblings had been fighting to save since the very beginning His journey has so many facets self loathing, retribution, self discovery, acceptance and forgiveness It was both heart breaking and heart warming to watch his struggle.Jillian s journey was equally as fascinating She has had her share of heartbreak and despair that has led her to build up walls that no ordinary man will be able to penetrate Thankfully, Respeh isn t ordinary in any sense of the word I cannot express how much I loved this book I finished it in 24 hours because I just had to see what happened next I laughed, I cried, I got weird looks at the dentist for my audible gasps Ms Ione created such memorable characters and the moments that they share are ones that readers won t soon forget The emotions from Reseph and Jillian practically leap off of the page This was the absolute perfect ending to Pestilence and beginning to Reseph Thank you, Ms Ione, for an unforgettable story and for being the amazing author and storyteller that you are

    Finally..we have Reseph s story After being the most malevolent and evil character in the previous 3 books, I was questioning how the author would be able to turn him into an endearing romantic hero that I could bond with as much as I have done with the other three Horsemen Boy, did she do it We discover the real Reseph that his siblings always spoke about.the laid back, loving, caring and fun person and who ever guessed a poet living inside him forget Lord Byron, John Keats Finally..we have Reseph s story After being the most malevolent and evil character in the previous 3 books, I was questioning how the author would be able to turn him into an endearing romantic hero that I could bond with as much as I have done with the other three Horsemen Boy, did she do it We discover the real Reseph that his siblings always spoke about.the laid back, loving, caring and fun person and who ever guessed a poet living inside him forget Lord Byron, John Keats Reseph s words are sheer poetry Reseph is mysteriously found naked and unconscious in the woods by Jillian Cardiff She s been hiding since being attacked by demons and though she s hesitant at first, takes him into her home.When he wakes up, he has no memory of who he is But as time passes, they begin to grow close together and fall in love He doesn t know why he s appeared in Jillian s life, but he knows that he wants to be with her But what happens when his memory returns Will it change their feelings Despite those worries, they decide that their bond will overcome anything that happens in the future.carpe Diem But soon evil enters their peaceful life.demons attack Jillian s next door neighbors and when demon hunters turn up he knows that Jillian s life is in danger He refuses to leave her alone So, Jillian is not a weakling.she faces up to her fears and danger And when Reseph s memories return and he finds out the horrors he has caused when he was controlled by Pestilence.he doubts if he can ever redeem himself will he be able to fix all the bad and wrong things he s done in the past And how can Jillian still love him when she discovers that part of him Jillian turned out to be a heroine of worth She had loved and trusted him before she knew of his past and that was never going to change She knew the real Reseph She would make any sacrifice, do anything to help Reseph overcome the danger and evil demons that were determined to destroy the goodness inside of him and like Reseph lyrically told her she will help him put things right, help him with gaining his family s trust again and ultimately help him stop the Apocalypse.The romance between Reseph and Jillian was sweet, delightful.but hey, don t worry.steamy too.the sex scenes were pretty sexy and sensual their chemistry was intensely deep and I was happy that we finally have Reseph back the lovable and fun person..and that he has found peace and love in his life.Lords of Deliverance is an incredible and engaging series and the author has created captivating characters, heroic heroes, unique and vivid worlds that make it a thrilling and enjoyable read.This book wraps up the stories of the Horsemen but with the next book being about Reaver who has played a large part in the four books and wicked Harvester am sure we will be seeingof Ares, Limos, Thanatos, Reseph and their families again.Can t wait My favorite quote

    I absolutely hated HATED HATED Reseph Pestilence in the previous books When his seal was broken, he became the worst enemy of the humankind spreading various horrible diseases all over the world and killing millions of people Horrible deaths Rogue Rider is the book about his redemption In the last book, he has disappeared from the face of earth In this book he has no memory, no name, no past Since he used to be a good guy before he became the most evil creature on Earth, the loss of his mem I absolutely hated HATED HATED Reseph Pestilence in the previous books When his seal was broken, he became the worst enemy of the humankind spreading various horrible diseases all over the world and killing millions of people Horrible deaths Rogue Rider is the book about his redemption In the last book, he has disappeared from the face of earth In this book he has no memory, no name, no past Since he used to be a good guy before he became the most evil creature on Earth, the loss of his memory is a blessing He will not like himself when he remembers who he used to be.So, when Jillian finds him naked and unconscious near to her isolated home and takes him in, he does not really try too hard to remember Especially when the two of them starting falling in loveCan you handle not knowing who I was Can you deal with the man I am now Yes, she whispered in a husky rasp Oh, yes Good, he said, lowering his mouth to her throat Because the man I am now is who I want to be Forever You may say that Jillian is a bit too compliant and innocent in the beginning She does not really think of the fact that she was attacked by a Demon before and that now she wants to be left alone and forget She falls in love too fast, without knowing anything about the past of this beautiful stranger But Reseph before he became Pestilence, used to be the most lovable of the four horsemen He has a gift with words, he knows how to love to be tender, and he knows how to make someone feel unique And he really likes Jillian Naturally his past will come and find him even at this isolated place Jillian will soon find out that there is something worse than the demon that hunts her And that is the Master of all Demons.The book is full of revelations for the four horsemen and the people around them We learn Who is the four horsemen s daddy Who is Harvester s daddyThe book isabout forgiveness, acceptance and romance and less about epic battlesI feel like I m finally whole I m five thousand years old, he rasped But the day you found me in the woods, that s when my life started After I finished it, I cannot really say that I totally forgave Reseph But I think I have accepted a little his actions

believe.Rogue Rider is one of those stories that if you re like me, a big baby, you ll be sobbing your heart out at every turn of the page It s no surprise I m a HUGE Larissa Ione fan, so maybe I m a little biased when it comes to reviewing Rogue Rider But there is no mistaking the talent Larissa Ione has for her world building, story telling, and abosolutely amazing characters I became a fan of Larissa in 2011 when I began reading Pleasure Unbound and fell madly in love w her Daemonica series, which features Sex Demons running an Underworld Hospital How HOT is that By the end of Demonica, I was devasted, but soon after found out Ione wasn t even close to being done w her world And so, the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse were introduced From the beginning of the series in Eternal Rider, we find out that Reseph s seal has broken, and he is the first of the Horsemen to become trully and unspeakably evil What my concern was throughout the whole series was, how can Larissa Ione redeem Reseph, or as he was known throughout the series, Pestilence There is no way the grotesquely evil being could be redeemed, at least not in my eyes, but Reseph Reseph s heartbreaking pleas to end his life, in the seconds he was able to break through to his brothers and sister, they completely won me over Maybe I m some sort of masochist, but I loved Reseph as the villain in this series God but Pestilence was beyond brutal Not borderline asshole, no, he made assholes look like loveable kittens I was skeptical about Reseph s book too How would she turn an evil being into a loving man Oh, but the end of Lethal Rider shocked us all I m sure The one thing I ll say I hated so much about Rogue Rider is that the key players of the Demonica world were missing, save for Kynan whom I love But I understood, this story was about Reseph s healing Still, I would have loved to see the characters and catch up with them And okay, I ll admit, I would also have loved to have seenaction than suspense, but the Apocalypse had been averted, there wasn t much to fight about Jillian Cardiff was a refreshing heroine Strong and independent, determined not to depend on any man but definitely not immune to a sexy stranger who shows her compassion like she s never known before Having survied a demon attack during the chaos that had ensued three months earlier, Jillian has isolated herself from the world But all that changes one evening when she rescues a sexy naked stranger on the snowbank I loved how her and Reseph s relationship developed slowly Yes, she was instantly attracted to him, who wouldn t be , but she didn t give in to his sexual innuendos She got to know him first, which is always a plus in my book And wow, finding out about her demon attack was brutal and heartbreaking This woman is a fighter, and I loved her for Reseph Reseph s character was awesome We d read about how before his seal broke, Reseph was the playfull Horseman The one who was always happy and making sure everyone was taken care of, and of course, that he was the whore of the quartet xD Smh, THIS was the Reseph I was dying to meet Strong, lethal, playful and funny What a sexy combination Oh his story is shattering. from the hurt he feels when Jillian leaves him, to the pain and misery he puts himself through when he recovers his memories I know a simple apology will never make up for the hurt he d put his loved ones, and the world through, but you d think his family would understand a little better What an interesting turn of events regarding the Horsemen s watchers, the angels and demons, and all that s in between There were so many lose ends tied up in this book, but the question everyone is dying to know still remains, WHAT ON EARTH happened to Yenrieth..I m sad to hear this will be the last of the Deliverance books, but I cannot wait to reread this series and fall in love all over again _ARC provided by Grand Central Publishing via NetgalleyWhat REALLY happened the morning of September 14th, when I received Rogue Rider view spoiler So I wake up Friday morning to a phone call from work, apparently my shifts got cancelled this weekend. and it s been a pretty shitty week, so

understand that Larissa Ione is one of my favorite authors, and that her Daemonica world is by far one of my favorite in the PNR genre She s one of my go to authors so of course, I drop everything else to read her books Just about every emotion was wrenched out of me while reading about Reseph Jillian I couldn t control myself..Reseph naked in the snow OMG, She leaves him o x Gasp Oh no, HE

    I can only imagine how awesome this book is going to be With everything he s done as pestilence I can imagine what his falling in love and having to atone for his sins Then having to make up with his siblings Will make Lore and Sin bonding with the Sem brothers look like cake UPDATE Actual Review Originally posted on Confessions of an Opinionated Book Geek Rogue Rider is the book that every fan of the Lords of Deliverance series has been waiting for From the first moment Pestilence st I can only imagine how awesome this book is going to be With everything he s done as pestilence I can imagine what his falling in love and having to atone for his sins Then having to make up with his siblings Will make Lore and Sin bonding with the Sem brothers look like cake UPDATE Actual Review Originally posted on Confessions of an Opinionated Book Geek Rogue Rider is the book that every fan of the Lords of Deliverance series has been waiting for From the first moment Pestilence struck out at his siblings, redemption seemed impossible and reconciliation was unspeakable How could they possibly forgive him for the things that he has done As the series progressed and we got into the heads of Ares, Limos and Thantanos we learnedof whom Pestilence was before his seal broke Before he was Pestilence, he was their brother He was the charismatic, loyal and fun loving Reseph In the eyes of his siblings, he was the best of them The one they could rely on, the one who knew their secrets It s why he was the most interesting Horseman to make a villain With everything I learned about Reseph, another idea began to occur to me The question is not how his siblings could forgive him the question is how Reseph can possibly forgive himself.Larissa Ione is very good at making a bad boy, good In her Demonica series, the youngest Sem brother, Wraith is the hugest mess up He is irresponsible, rash and extremely sarcastic Somehow the baby brother seminous demon is the catalyst that saves the world With this knowledge of Ione s storytelling skills, I expected a really great story for Reseph I waited for this book with baited breath and couldn t wait to get it on my nook.While I have some issues with this book, as a whole, Ione did not disappoint The story begins with Reseph He is out in the snow, he is naked and he has no idea who he is My initial reaction was, NO I want to see him face to face with his siblings And where is Kyan and Arik, where are our supporting characters Fortunately, Larissa Ione had a very specific plan She separated Reseph and her readers from the other characters and all the baggage from the first three books It allows us to momentarily forget that Reseph has Pestilence deep inside him Without the nonstop hatred of the other characters, it is easy to forget Pestilence The first third of the book just focuses on Reseph, Jillian and the small two streetlight town where Reseph begins his new life It s actually a brilliant approach I got to leave the baggage at the door and fall in love with Reseph.The first third of this book is very calm There are some grizzly deaths and of course the suspicion of the amnesiac Reseph is there, but for the most part it reads like a contemporary romance where the world just happens to be populated by demons Then it hits the fan Supporting characters come back, the aegis is once again plotting and Reseph s past returns to haunt him.Experiencing Reseph s guilt is extremely difficult On the one hand you know that as Pestilence he did some horrible things and deserves to be punished On the other hand, you know that Pestilence and Respeh or not the same people You re suddenly placed in the shoes of his family To forgive him or to let him suffer Redeem him or condemn him In the midst of all this the fight for good vs evil continues and there is a love story Jillian is a really typical Paranormal Romance heroine She is scarred, she is alone and she stumbles across a man who draws her in as much as he terrifies her Jillian has some deep secrets of her own that could throw a wrench in her budding relationship with the damaged Horseman Still, I liked Jillian She was as vulnerable as she was strong She was also extremely loyal and willing to take risks, even as she feared her heart being broken.The reason this is a 4 star review and not a 5, unfortunately is the ending It s just too quick and things happen a bit too easily Things get really really bad Like, the end of heaven, hell and everything in between, bad Then they come up with a plan in 5 seconds, there s a bit of skirmish and it s all over The actual end of conflict, happens so fast, I had re read the section I thought I missed something It gave me whiplash Then everything is resolved and we re just waiting for the next book The ending just didn t satisfy me I don t feel as if the tale is done Obviously, there is a fifth book coming, but still this particular installment should feel closed.Beyond that, I enjoyed this book I love the Lord of Deliverance world and am excited to finally read Reaver s book So much is revealed about him in Rogue Rider, but still not enough I want to know everything about his past, why he lost his wings and why they stripped his memory from him I cannot wait for the fifth installment, unfortunately it s coming out in a year
