They are 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 . . .
In Lethal Rider Thanatos, the most deadly Horseman of the Apocalypse, has endured thousands of years of celibacy to prevent the end of days. But just one night with the wickedly sexy Aegis Guardian Regan Cooper shatters centuries of resolve. Yet their passion comes with a price. And Thanatos must face a truth more terrifying than an apocalypse - he's about to become a father.
Demon-slayer Regan Cooper never imagined herself the maternal type, but with the fate of the world hanging in the balance, she had no choice but to seduce Thanatos and bear his child. Now, as the final battle draws closer and his rage at being betrayed is overshadowed by an undeniable passion for the mother of his child, Thanatos has a life-shattering realization: To save the world, he must sacrifice the only thing he's ever wanted - a family.

I love this series and the story was absolutely fantastic but WHO IN THEIR RIGHT MIND DECIDED SWITCHING NARRATORS WAS A GOOD IDEA? Can you tell I'm hacked? The timing sucked. The character's were horribly portrayed to the point that she used her female intonations for male characters at some points. I mean REALLY? The whole freakin world of listeners loves Hillary Huber doing these so what...I know...let's get someone else to do it who has no freaking clue! Sorry...I'm ranting and I'll get control of myself at any minute...really....I will...
It sure wasn't the narration. The story was brilliant but I'm just as invested in my listening experience as I am in the story itself and right at the moment...Yeah...As is typical with these stories there is a wonderful blend of action, adventure, hot romance and a healthy dose of humor. Of course, a great deal of the humor is lost due to the timing of the narration and the narrator's lack of experience with the characters. If you are new to the series, you'll want to at least start with the first Horseman so that you can truly enjoy the story. Better yet, head back to the beginning of Demonica because you will want to understand the world and the players.
HACKED. ME. OFF. I hate that I'm so freaking mad about this because I can tell that Erin Bennett doesn't suck as a narrator. In fact, I'd probably like her in any other circumstance but you don't jump in with a new narrator in the middle of the series unless you know said narrator can seamlessly carry on the roles or greatly improve on them. They were already perfect..so..... It's not as bad as Renee Raudman's performance of the 3rd story of the Demonica books. In fact, by comparison, it's extremely tolerable.
I think you'll find that my extreme reaction, as noted above, was to the narration.
Don't take my whining and ranting to mean you shouldn't get the story. The world Larissa Ione has created and the wonderful, rich, funny and sexy hot characters will keep you coming back for more. If you're just starting, don't forget you need to go back to Demonica. Once you start, you'll be uploading new stories so fast it will look like you've cashed out the credits!
This book was perfect, it has it all, romance (just a tad bit, more sex than romance (not complaining)), hilarity, suspense, action, name it. I also love the preview of the next book with pestilence. I am a little scarce on the review.......... but have to run.
A mom, a wife, a friend, a happy ending addict, an audiobook junkie, a wine lover and geek wanna -be. I'm constantly looking to be blown awa
Larissa Ione delivers without disappointment the best entry to this series, no complaints at all with the story, in fact, I LOVED IT! But unfortunately the narration by Erin Bennett was less than ideal, despite her ability to bring the book to life during the narration parts in a nice tone and pace, the distinctions of the voices were horrendous, and as a result her delivery and characters portrayal felt flat and unimpressive.
I have to say that the book felt like she was just reading it without putting any effort to accomplish an accurate depiction of the characters.
I wish they had kept the same narrator from the previous book, Hillary Huber, then I'm sure I would be giving this audiobook the all around 5 stars it deserves.
Would I still buy the the audio? Yes!! I still managed to enjoyed it, the story is so good it survives the poor characters transitions.
To be enjoy as part of the series.
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Yes!! couldn't get enough of Thanatos and his life and fam
I'm new to audio books, by far this is my FAVORITE of it's kind
Can't say, had many....
Yes, and did just that, didn't want it to end
If I can't hold a book in my hands and read it, well, an audio book is a great substitute. Or sometimes even better.
great third installment, and this is a book that let's a girl feel like maybe we could all be sexy and tough while seriously pregnant. Thanatos's simple conflict and instant love make the book one you don't want to turn off. Definetly worth the price.
Good story, good characters and a good plot. Can't wait for the next one.
Narrator did a good job. Liked her voice.
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
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.
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!!!
