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.
There is so much excitement going on in Immortal Rider that I seriously don't know where to start this review. Just when things calm down for a second for the characters, something else happens that makes you just want to say, "WOW!" Although Limos and Arik are the main characters in the book, we get to see all of the awesome characters of this series as well as some from Ione's Demonica series. Limos and Arik have their work cut out for them in this book once Arik is sent to Hell for putting the moves on Satan's woman. He's tortured day in and day out while trying to find a way to get out, she's trying to find a way to get to him while dealing with all the craziness going on around her. Mostly from her brother Reseph that has become Pestilence. Pestilence is one nasty dude and we get to see that side of him even more when he manages to flip Limos's world upside down. Secrets are revealed one after another in this book and I found myself gasping out loud because it just got worse and worse for poor Limos!
Despite all of the madness that Limos and Arik had to endure in this book, I found it to be extremely entertaining at the same time. I just couldn't put the book down because once it started, the goodness just continued throughout the book. I was also very entertained with Than's storyline as well. Can I just say that his book is going to be amazing after what happens to him in this book! Larissa sure knows how to make her readers sweat and pull their hair out because I'm counting the days until his book comes out. Let's just say he's got a situation going on that starts in Immortal Rider and will continue into his book Lethal Rider. I'm sure his book is going to be full of nonstop action as well.
I'm giving Immortal Rider a rating of:
My review may seem kind of vague because I just can't talk about much of the storyline without giving anything away. You must experience everything that happens on this book on your own! Only then will you get an appreciation for it's awesomeness and the absolute pure genius of Larissa Ione. She continues to have that perfect mix of drama with comedy in her writing and it's unbelieveable (but believeable) that her books just get better and better! It's no surprise that she's one of my favorite authors and I'll always look forward to reading her future books. If you still haven't read anything written by her yet, start with her Demonica series and work your way into this series. You won't be disappointed, trust me.
