Review: Immortal Rider by Larissa Ione

Immortal Rider (Lords of Deliverance #2) by Larissa Ione
Synopsis (Goodreads):
The signs are everywhere...disastrous world events. Evil rising up, unleashed upon the innocent. The prophecies were there...but no one listened. Until now. The time has come for those who can either usher in Doomsday...or prevent it. They are here. They ride. The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.

Arik Wagner, a soldier with the U.S. Army's paranormal unit, the R-XR, kissed a girl and liked it. And then he went to hell as punishment. Where he's spent weeks being tortured...and plotting revenge.

Limos, Horsewoman of the Apocalypse, isn't your average girl. She's immortal, dangerous, and her fiancé is Satan himself. In a moment of weakness, she gave in to her desire and kissed Arik, triggering her fiancé's wrath - and his claim on her. In order to save Arik, and the world, Limos must make a dangerous pact with her recently turned evil brother, Pestilence. A deal that might just cost her her soul...and her heart.
My Thoughts: After Ares found the love of his life and everything turned out a-okay, naturally I was curious to see how Limos was going to measure up. She was... interesting. I mean, talk about oodles of sexual frustration. And her chastity pearls were NOT fun for anyone who came in contact with them. Of course, when the alternative to the chastity pearls is Satan and being the bride of the underworld... well, I'd choose the chastity in that case.

Now, Arik... I like the guy. He withstood vile torture at the hands of some really nasty demons. He has a few issues, but he's loyal to his sister and he stands up for the things he believes in. And he's sporting some major wood for Limos despite the accident that landed him in Hell. His actions when he was freed killed me. Just killed me. With everything he'd been through I can understand why he acted the way he acted. It was totally weep-worthy and I adored how he ultimately bounced back from everything.

Meanwhile... THANATOS! Holy crud, the wheels that were put in motion for his story just... YIKES! I am SO excited to get to his book next. Also, the Aegis suck. I know they were misled but... *glares* And and and and... the Harvester/Reaper THING. I can't wait to see that come full circle and bite her in the ass. THINGS HAPPEN, PEOPLE. THINGS HAPPEN!

Two horsemen down, one to go. And one to bring back from the edge of nowhere. Let's do this!
