Lethal Rider by Larissa Ione

Lethal Rider (Lords of Deliverance, #3) Title: Lethal Rider
Author: Larissa Ione
Rating: 4.5 Stars

Review: Best in the series so far as the Demonic Apocalypse plot reaches a climax and the romance finally lives up to its potential.    Fast paced and action packed from the outset, Lethal Rider begins exactly where Immortal Rider left off with Thanatos bent on revenge and Regan guilt ridden but determined to protect herself and her child. Thankfully, their love-hate relationship is relatively angst free as they slowly come to forgive, trust and love one another.    

The politics and machinations of the Underworld and its denizens continue although this installment is not as violent or gruesome as the last, and Ione illustrates once again that morality is never black and white and so-called good people can commit heinous atrocities supposedly in the name of doing what is right.  The only weak point involves the inclusion of the Daywalkers vs. Nightwalkers subplot, which is insufficiently developed and contributes little to the story or Thanatos's characterization.   

Finally, there are interesting developments in the Pestilence/Reseph storyline and some intriguing hints at things to come with Reaver and Harvester. Looking forward to what Ione has up her sleeve for the next installments.


  1. I loved this one too! I do agree about the Daywalker plot...I liked the idea, but I found myself wishing there was more to it. Great review!
