Rogue Rider


Today's post is on Rogue Rider by Larissa Ione.  It is the fourth in her Lords of Deliverance series. It is 391 pages long and is published by Grand Central. As it is the fourth in the series you need to have read the first three to understand the story. The cover has the two main characters on it about to kiss. The intended reader is someone who likes romance, decent writing, and happy endings. There is language, sex, and violence in this book. The story is told from third person close of the different character moving from one to another as the story goes. There Be Spoilers Ahead.

From the back of the book- They're here.
They ride.
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 . . .
Jillian Cardiff came to this remote mountain town to forget the demon attack that almost killed her. Instead, she rescues-and falls for-a gorgeous stranger who has no memory of anything other than his name. Handsome, charming, and protective, Reseph seems like the kind of man whom Jillian can trust. But with hints of a troubling history of his own, he's also the kind of man who can be very dangerous . . .
Reseph may not know why he mysteriously appeared in Jillian's life, but he knows he wants to stay. Yet when Jillian's neighbors are killed, and demon hunters arrive on the scene, Reseph fears that he's putting Jillian in danger. And once it's revealed that Reseph is also Pestilence, the Horseman responsible for ravaging the world, he and Jillian must face the greatest challenge of all: Can they forget the horrors of a chilling past to save the future they both desire?

Review- A fun way to end a series. Reseph has been through some stuff so I really wanted to see his happy ending and I really enjoyed it. He had to deal with what has happened. He had to make peace and start over. I liked his heroine Jillian a lot. She just does not stop. When you meet her at the beginning you think that she is scared but she is not. She is just healing from trauma. When the chips are down, she comes through. I know that Ione is not done with this universe and I may pick up a later book but right now I am happy with where everything is. I did feel that the ending was a little rushed but I guess with three volumes of build up that cannot be helped. A fun series and a fun setting with fun character. Not much more I can ask for.

I give this book a Four out of Five stars. I get nothing for my review and I bought this book with my own money.
