"Eternal Rider" by Larissa Ione

Eternal Rider (Lords of Deliverance, #1)Eternal Rider by Larissa Ione
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Everytime I start to read a new series, the antecipation in my mind to enter a new universe
is always at the highest peak but sometimes I find myself disapointed. Not this time.
This world does not let you put the book down or let go of the swirling action that takes high peaks of adreline in your mind,
and for those that loved this author, they will find themselfs falling all over again.
For me, it was the first time that I read her books and I'm definitely going to follow up in those that came before "Eternal Rider".

For as long of decades, Lilith tried to seduce Yenrieth, and after she succeded, 3 boys and a girl were born.
The girl named Limos stayed with her in Sheoul.The three boys were Reseph, Ares, Thanatos, and they were placed in the human world
with powerful families.
The boys grew into men, never suspecting the truth about their origins. At least, not until demons rose up,
spreading terror and seeking to use Lilith’s sons against the humans. Limos escaped from Sheoul, found her brothers,
and revealed the truth about their parentage.

By this time, the brothers had seen their lands and families destroyed by demons and, blinded by hatred and the need for revenge,
Lilith’s children encouraged (manipulatively and forcibly, sometimes) humans to help them fight violent,
never-ending battles against the underworld abominations.

Zachariel, an angel of the Apocalypse, led a legion of angels to Earth, where they met in battle with demon hordes.
When the earth and waters ran red with blood, and humans could no longer survive on the poisoned land, Zachariel struck a deal with the devil.
Lilith’s children were to be punished for slinging mankind to the brink of doom in their selfish bid for revenge.
Because they had nearly brought about the end of days, they were charged as the keepers of Armageddon.
Defenders or instigators; the choice would fall on their shoulders.

Each of them was given a Seal, and with each Seal came two prophecies.
Should they protect their Seals from breaking until the prophecy laid out by the Bible came to pass, they would save their souls—and mankind.
But should they allow the Seals to be broken prematurely, as written in the Daemonica, the demon bible, they would turn evil,
and would forever be known by the names Pestilence, War, Famine, and Death.

And thus were born the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.

This book tells us the story of Ares, also known as War. After seeing his family being killed by a hellhound, Ares turned into a brutal war
machine, which the only purpose for living was to battle and avenge those he loved, but one main lesson he learned was that you can never
love because in the end they will get taken from you and you'll suffer.

Cara Thornhart had gift, the gift of healing animals.Since she was a child she was seen as an outcast, so she hidden that ability in order
to try to live a normal life. She grew up as a woman that knew what to fight for and had the hability to achieve it but after her father's
death and the attack that she suffered, all the hability and self-confidence disappeared and she grew weary of the hability to live
turning into a "ghost", scared to live and fear reigning over her life.

A point in favor for this book is the action packed pages of action and endless battles between the characters and the logical link
that they all share between them, the thread line that the reader follows whithout loosing it's line and getting confused inbetween
scenes. Even for me, that never had touched any of the previous character's, I never lost my ground.

Starting with a fight between Ares and a hellhound, because they are immortal "but hellhound bites were poison to the Horsemen,
causing paralysis, and then the suffering really began.", the story evolves into a shattering fact, one of the seals has been broken,
and the Armageddon has begun.

Between the urgency that is to find a way to stop Ares seal from breaking and finding the aegimortis and who it is passed to, and
battling his brother Reseph, now known as Pestilence, and finding the long lost love in Cara, this book has the ability to povoate
your mind, and if you have the imagination for it, while reading you can picture this scenes in your mind, it would make a hell of
a movie...
