I will be doing this in love letter form since I read Books 1 to 4 back to back
“She'd read somewhere that normal, healthy men got up to twenty erections a day. Um...yep, Ares was definitely healthy.”― Larissa Ione, Eternal Rider
Love Letter to Ares/War and Cara
Dear Ares: You are what a man of war should be: logical, strategical, and focused. I love that you are loyal, hard-nosed, and clearly in charge of your surroundings. However, it was the second you got knocked on your ass by Cara and your world started spinning that I really fell in love with you! I do like that there was resolution of some of the things from your past. Now I hope you and Cara have a long and animal filled life.
Dear Cara: How can I not want to have girls night out with a girl who loves animals so dearly. I am thinking I need a hellhound except that I am pretty sure my furrbabies would just teach it how to be lazy. I love that you are strong, smart, and mouthy. Thank you for not breaking Ares seal and making the world safe from War. You are the kind of woman who would be an awesome friend. One of my favorite types of leading ladies.
Dear Story: You were so action packed, thrilling, and good paced. I was impressed with the mythology tweaking. All of the elements (Guardians, Horseman, Watchers) were fascinating and drew me in immediately. I can't wait to see where we are going next! Just going to say it (don't get made) but I feel bad for "R/P". He didn't want to be what he is!
Narrated by Hillary Huber / LENGTH 12 hrs and 33 mins
Hillary did a pretty good job! I thought her pacing was excellent and it didn't take me long to get into the voices at all. The only thing that was a little off-putting was Pest's voice. It took me forever to get comfortable with it. I switched over to the paper copy at the end but that has nothing to do with the narrations and all about my impatience.
We really enjoyed this book. Characters where easy to identify with and the story moved along nicely. We enjoyed the book so much we have collected all of Larissa Ione's Books. We are looking for ward to the 3rd in the series. Great for all night driving.
This book is a good start to the serie. I like it. I can't wait for book three, though, Again, another bad boy for me to un-wrap. ^_^
Good story with a good narrator. I'll be sure and get the next one in this series. Fair amount of sex so if you have problems with those scenes......
I've always enjoyed this author when I read her other series and now hearing this new one, I like that she kept this series in the same world as her Demonica series. It might help if you've read that one before this one.
audio addict! Mostly interested in history and some historical fiction. Will Durant is my all time favorite. Loving the Great Courses too.
This series is excellent, and I can't believe I waited so long to read it. I suggest reading the Demonica series first, since this is a spin-off from the series.
This series is turning out better than Demonica, if that's possible.
High recommend to a sexy and completely engrossing series about the four hoursemen of the apocalypse. Very High Recommend to the first book- Eternal Rider: the story of Cara, a human who lives an isolated life after suffering PTSD, and her warrior Ares, or "War", one of the Horseman fighting to keep his seal from breaking and bringing on the apocalypse. Their story is wonderful and will be on my reread shelf.
I don't think the narrator is bad, though she isn't my favorite. I loved the narrator from Ione's Pleasure Unbound. Wish she had the series.
However, I am so happy that they are sticking to the narrator, unlike Demonica series. THANK YOU AND GREAT DECISION TO STICK WITH ONE NARRATER!!! It makes a big difference in the continuity of the series!
Thank you for brining Hilary back to narrate this book! Love the story about the Horsemen. Can't wait to see where this series goes.
Yes. I loved Ares & Cara's stories. It was a race against time and there were so many obstacles for them to overcome it made the book exciting. Plus, the narration was one of the best in the series.
It was an ending moment involving the hellhounds and don't want to leave any spoilers!
When Cara performs her gift on Ares's horse
I enjoyed the different voices/tones she used to tell the difference between characters in the book.
Good book, love this author. Exactly what I was expecting, and looking forward to listening to more audiobooks
