Publisher's Summary

They're here.

They ride.

They are the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.

Born of a match between good and evil, four siblings stand between hell's minions and everything they want to destroy. They are the Lords of Deliverance, and they have the power to ward off Doomsday . . . or let it ride . . .

In Lethal Rider Thanatos, the most deadly Horseman of the Apocalypse, has endured thousands of years of celibacy to prevent the end of days. But just one night with the wickedly sexy Aegis Guardian Regan Cooper shatters centuries of resolve. Yet their passion comes with a price. And Thanatos must face a truth more terrifying than an apocalypse - he's about to become a father.

Demon-slayer Regan Cooper never imagined herself the maternal type, but with the fate of the world hanging in the balance, she had no choice but to seduce Thanatos and bear his child. Now, as the final battle draws closer and his rage at being betrayed is overshadowed by an undeniable passion for the mother of his child, Thanatos has a life-shattering realization: To save the world, he must sacrifice the only thing he's ever wanted - a family.

Story Rocks...Narration...WHAT WERE THEY THINKING?

Where does Lethal Rider rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I love this series and the story was absolutely fantastic but WHO IN THEIR RIGHT MIND DECIDED SWITCHING NARRATORS WAS A GOOD IDEA? Can you tell I'm hacked? The timing sucked. The character's were horribly portrayed to the point that she used her female intonations for male characters at some points. I mean REALLY? The whole freakin world of listeners loves Hillary Huber doing these so what...I know...let's get someone else to do it who has no freaking clue! Sorry...I'm ranting and I'll get control of myself at any minute...really....I will...

What did you like best about this story?

It sure wasn't the narration. The story was brilliant but I'm just as invested in my listening experience as I am in the story itself and right at the moment...Yeah...As is typical with these stories there is a wonderful blend of action, adventure, hot romance and a healthy dose of humor. Of course, a great deal of the humor is lost due to the timing of the narration and the narrator's lack of experience with the characters. If you are new to the series, you'll want to at least start with the first Horseman so that you can truly enjoy the story. Better yet, head back to the beginning of Demonica because you will want to understand the world and the players.

What three words best describe Erin Bennett’s performance?

HACKED. ME. OFF. I hate that I'm so freaking mad about this because I can tell that Erin Bennett doesn't suck as a narrator. In fact, I'd probably like her in any other circumstance but you don't jump in with a new narrator in the middle of the series unless you know said narrator can seamlessly carry on the roles or greatly improve on them. They were already perfect..so..... It's not as bad as Renee Raudman's performance of the 3rd story of the Demonica books. In fact, by comparison, it's extremely tolerable.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I think you'll find that my extreme reaction, as noted above, was to the narration.

Any additional comments?

Don't take my whining and ranting to mean you shouldn't get the story. The world Larissa Ione has created and the wonderful, rich, funny and sexy hot characters will keep you coming back for more. If you're just starting, don't forget you need to go back to Demonica. Once you start, you'll be uploading new stories so fast it will look like you've cashed out the credits!

Mostly Boring

Although this book did get better near the end, I thought most of the story was sort of boring. Perhaps it was just the narration, but I just wasn't interested in the story line or the characters. Hopefully the next book is better and they go back to the original narrator.

By far the best of the series!!!

This is by far the best book in the series. I love Thanatos!!! Wow... the passion between Regan and Than was simply brilliantly written. Ione really has outdone herself with this one. Than is the Horseman of Death, so you know his story was going to be dark on some level. I like how Ione made Than's character full of all this emotion because he carries the souls of dead within his amour. But Than get these tattoos to take away the pain of the death he causes... LOVED IT!!! Regan said he was cheating by doing this... and ironically his tattoo are what saved Regan's life. This was the best story of all the four horsemen I think. So passionate!

This is a great buy/credit.

Bennett did an awesome job. I didn't even realize the narrator had changed from the first two books... but I am glad it did, because Bennett really did Regan's character so well. I loved it.

Fifty who? This is the real mommy porn...

My first thought when I finished listening to this book was how I wished it existed when I was pregnant and not feeling hot at all... It is an ode to love, sex, pregnancy and how the process can bring a couple closer than ever. So much has been said about the Fifty Shades series being mommy porn (which I listened to and loved) but I believe this is the real deal.

Ms. Ione has written another amazing addition to the Lords of Deliverance series. I am amazed as how she has been able to make each book even better than the previous. This is paranormal romance at its finest. The world she created is very rich, the characters complex and the storyline is completely unpredictable and very very interesting. There are so many reasons why I loved this book. First, For most of the story the heroine is pregnant and Ms. Ione has created such a sensual bad ass pregnant lady and the love making scenes are so hot!! This book is a must listen for any pregnant or new mother who needs to feel sexy and empowered once again.

I never knew what to expect! Romance stories tend to be very predictable but definitely not this one. I also love the way the author can write a dark story but in a way that it works and is not disgusting. I could visualize a movie while listening to this. At the end of the book you get a preview of the next book Rogue Rider which is Pestilence (Resive) story and OMG it sounds just as amazing as all the other books in this series. I did some research and found that Rogue Rider should be out by November. So it's a long painful wait to see how the series comes to an end. I sooo recommend this book!

Narration: I am definitely going through some audiobook Karma. This is the second series I've been listening to and loving the narration and all of the sudden they change the narrator to Erin Bennett. I do not like the narrator at all. I have Erin Bennett in my narrators to avoid list but to my luck the books by my favorite authors keep being narrated by her. It's not that she's unbearable it's just that all the characters sound the same and you have to pay extra attention to see who's talking. And at times she sounds monotonous. Oh well, but the story is so good, steamy, interesting and unpredictable that you should listen to it even with the less than desirable narrator.

LARISSA IONE KNOWS PNR!!!

Larissa Ione delivers without disappointment the best entry to this series, no complaints at all with the story, in fact, I LOVED IT! But unfortunately the narration by Erin Bennett was less than ideal, despite her ability to bring the book to life during the narration parts in a nice tone and pace, the distinctions of the voices were horrendous, and as a result her delivery and characters portrayal felt flat and unimpressive.
I have to say that the book felt like she was just reading it without putting any effort to accomplish an accurate depiction of the characters.
I wish they had kept the same narrator from the previous book, Hillary Huber, then I'm sure I would be giving this audiobook the all around 5 stars it deserves.
Would I still buy the the audio? Yes!! I still managed to enjoyed it, the story is so good it survives the poor characters transitions.
To be enjoy as part of the series.
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Sensuality: HOT

Absolutely love it

This book was perfect, it has it all, romance (just a tad bit, more sex than romance (not complaining)), hilarity, suspense, action, name it. I also love the preview of the next book with pestilence. I am a little scarce on the review.......... but have to run.

Another Winner by Larissa Ione

What is there NOT to love about the book, okay the narrator but I'm going to talk about the book first. The story is AMAZING. I love, love, love this story and I thought it was going to be hard as hell to compete with Ares (cause I'm comparing it to the other male of the group that has been published so far) but Than sooooo holds up. He is sexy and aggressive and hot and demanding and pretty much all together perfect.

I wanted to hate Regan for what she did, I really did but I found myself really, really liking her. That is one of the things that Larissa is amazing at...taking a character that we should all hate and twisting it so that we end up rooting and cheering for them. I LOVED the twist at the end of the book and was so surprised cause that wasn't even anything that I saw coming.

And weaving in the folks from UG is perfect. I love seeing the brothers coming into the stories.


Okay now, for the narration. Really???? REALLY??? What were you thinking? What a horrible Horrible choice for narrator. They should have stuck with Hillary Huber from the other books cause she is the best with the voices.

If you can just move past the voice and listen to the story, it's amazing. I highly recommend this and I can't wait for Reseph's book.

Riding with Death.

I'm so glad I found this series and the Demonica series. It may not be for everybody, but I really like it. So far from the Horseman series this one is my favorite. I also have an idea who their father really is, can't wait to see if I'm right or wrong. Great creation of a new world, great characters, and lots of action. Each book lead me to anticipate the next without feeling that I was left hanging. The narrator is good. I will defiantly be getting everything that Larissa Ione writes. Recommend starting with the Demonica series.
