Each "Rider" story gets better and better...
I recommend this story without fail!
Very easy to get lost in her stories and can't wait for the next
Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.
Erin Bennett does a good job! Her pace is faster and matches the storyline. Ms Huber is a bit slow. Ok Ms Bennet cannot do a deep male voice, but her fast pace levels the playing field. This story is great and very creative of Ms Ione. The Demonic series is too much for me. Way too much information. This series is much better,and some of the characters do appear. This series has better editing.
You do need to listen in order as too much is lost when read out of order.
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.
I loved the other two books, and the narrator. Unfortunately the change in narrator almost killed this audiobook for me. She did not have the inflections that we are so used to with the characters we love. Ky's voice was normal!, and had difficulty knowing who was talking. Other than that, the story was AWESOME!!! I love Than. The book is definitely worth reading or listening too, just be aware the narration might take away from the awesomeness of story.
I am always surprised how the these authors can make each book better than the last. Larissa Ione did not disappoint in Lethal rider. This book is awesome. It you have ever been a pregnant women you will love how this book progresses. Than is the most understated of the Horseman and it was nice to see how he comes out of his shell and treats Regan so good. They had a lot to overcome and Than realizes the beauty of a pregnant woman.
I am excited to see how Ione will finish this series when it comes to Reseff. Great Series!!!
This is Book 3 in the Series, and its just as good as the others - interesting, complex, unpredictable - everything a book should be and more! Larissa Ione is really an amazing author, and the Lords of Deliverance series is just brilliant. The heronie, Regan, is a bass-ass women, even while pregnant - you just love her. Thanatos is not the typical hero - he is covered in tatoos and has a dark edge, but he is very compelling and attractive.
The only downside is the narrator. UGH! I don't know why they changed the narrator in the middle of the series, but Erin Bennett was a bad choice. It was hard to tell what character she was doing, and I found her to be very boring. She is also the narrator for Rogue Rider - the last book in the series - which makes me angry. I had to talk myself into listening to it, but I really love, love this series, so I will suffer the bad narrator, again.
The story was great and very entertaining. After listening to the voices created by Hillary Huber in the previous books in the series, this one was a little disappointing. Narrator was fine but the characters Hillary brought to the series made the stories so much more fun to listen to.
So many books...so little time! :)
Lethal Rider was good, not quite great...and the change in narration was a big part of it! I really miss Hillary from the last two books...Erin was pretty much reading the whole time, and very monotone in my opinion. The characters were easily confused, and she didn't display much emotion. I was not impressed!
Thanatos and Regan's story however, is still a very good one, despite the narration. In the beginning Thanatos is still pretty angry about Regan's betrayal, and Regan, on the other hand, can't forgive herself for what she did to Thanatos. After spending time together though in the last week of her pregnancy, they start seeing each other differently and begin to realize that they are good for each other in so many different ways. Wether they take the chance to find out what it can be is up to them, and it becomes uncertain in many instances.
At the same time, there is a lot more betrayal that happens that you don't see coming at all, not to mention they still have Pestilence and preventing the apocalypse to deal with. I can honestly say at the end, I was beginning to give up hope, but it doesn't disappoint!
So, it is on the the last one, which should be interesting considering it surprisingly focuses on Reseph. Hmmm.... ;)
Note that I say "reader". There was no narration. Every character had the same voice. Even when the 2 main characters, one male and one female, were having a conversation, there was NO difference in her voice. She made no effort to make males and females sound different from one another. This was such a huge disappointment after Hilary Huber narrated the first 2 books so well. Bennett's voice was so bland that I would find myself with wandering mind. She will be added to my "never listen to again" list. I just bought the 4th book in the series at Target for $5.99.
The story, on the other hand, was very good, with lots of action and sexual tension, as well as some pretty steamy sex scenes. Now, I'm going to go READ the 4th book because Erin Bennett narrates it also. I really prefer when books whose major protagonist is male is read by a man. I love the guy that does the Kresley Cole books.
Also, it's Halley's Comet, pronounced Hal-lee, not Hailey (hay-lee).
