Publisher's Summary

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? (Book 4 of the Lords of Deliverance series)

    "This book needed to be longer!"

    This particular installment is one that you have to have read the previous books to fully grasp the activities in this book. We start off almost immediately after the last book ended, finding Reseph butt-naked (no complaints here) in the middle of snow, snow, and more snow where a kind-hearted and self-sacrificing Jillian finds him and drags him to her cabin to nurse him to health.

    Reseph is not what I had expected because as a spectator, I've only ever saw him as Pestilence. Even though there were intermittent memories brought on by his siblings as to the type of person he was before his seal broke, it was hard not to see him as absolute evil. The Reseph we are introduced to in this book is playful and so very sexual I felt almost sorry and jealous (ha!) for Jillian. There was no way for her to win the battle of her heart when it came to him. Reseph on the other hand falls hard for her and even without the full capacity of his memories, he knows he loves her and is positive he never felt that way about another female. Their love story is sweet and Ione does a fantastic job at softening the reader to Reseph and she is a master at creating caring and loving, yet insanely badass chicks as we see in Jillian.

    My biggest complaint with this book is that it needed to be longer! Reseph had a lot of ground to cover after the destruction he had done and I felt like the story moved very quickly, but not in a fast-paced, action-packed way, but in a way that left the reader detached from all the happenings. Results or after-maths were told in dialogue rather than shown. I think I had the same issue in the last installment where I felt like the story was not as richly depicted. I also was expecting a bigger to-do when they came up against the Aegis, especially after what happened in the last book, but when the scene came I was a bit disappointed. I mean I'm not looking for a Michael Bay rendition, but more of the complexity and development of the characters during these types of situations. Also (I always seem to whine about this, but I can't help it, I love the characters in this series) I wish there was more of the past characters besides the four horsemen, i.e. the Sem brothers and their growing family.

    I guess I'm just being greedy. I love the Lod and Demonica series that Ione has created and I want more.

    There is a huge revelation and when that part came around I was whooping. Yup, whooping and yelling "I knew it, I knew it," around people who didn't know I was "plugged" in (*^.^*) which then required some explanation as to what I knew.

    I can't wait for the next installment! It's gonna be brilliant I can feel it! I hope Ione doesn't stop writing this series because it is one of the best!

    "Exciting "

    I enjoyed the story as with all the previous books, but this one had a little something extra. A better mystery and it was exciting. I am looking forward to the next book in the series.

    "Not the best in the series; but still good"

    Reseph as Pestilence did so much that I simply cannot forgive him for... I totally understand he was not himself...but c'mon... so hard to forgive him... I actually hate him and feel so dang bad for him at the same time... That is just how good of a writer Larissa Ione is.... This book was most definitely need after all the crap he put his brothers and sister through.. and I am so glad they didn't just forgive him... but WOW... He literally is the greatest bad guy ever who totally needed to be redeemed... Jillian was the perfect fit him... so glad she is a wolf too... a bit for Reseph to keep him in line...

    Great addition to the series... but again... not the best in the bunch...

    Narration was awesome...

    Good buy, sale or credit...

    "Good story, awful narrator!"

    The story is good but the narrator is just awful. She simply reads the text as if it is a technical manual! In fact I have hread technical manual or meeting presentations to be read with more feeling than she reads this story!

    Story
    "Could not make myself finish this one!"
    What disappointed you about Rogue Rider?

    I liked the Lords of Deliverance series until this one. There were too many flashbacks and Indian stories. I actually returned this one for a credit on my account.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Larissa Ione again?

    Yes, I like Ione although she uses a lot of the same phrases in her books.

    "Reseph Rocks - Excelllent Series End!"

    I'm sad the series has ended - the Lords of Deliverance series was one of my favorites - just awesome! In this book, I was not sure that I would like Reseph, as he was an evil jerk in the prior 3 books, but Larissa Ione is brilliant and she turned him into a delicious, charming, totally hot hero. The twists in the book are unpredictible - I could not stop listening!

    If you are new to this series, you really must read them in order. The story is so complex with lots of characters/history, that you really need to read the prior ones to fully enjoy this book. All the books are worth the credit. I can't emphasize enough how good an author Larissa Ione is - she creates a world that is unique, interesting, complex, passionate - she is one of my favorite authors.

    The only downside - the narrator Erin Bennett. She is rather boring, which is unfortunate, but this book is so excellent that you can overcome the poor narration.

    "ULTIMATE SHOWDOWN"

    This was definitely the ultimate showdown as Reseph faces Pestilence once and for all. After everything Pestilence has done...I felt so bad for Reseph knowing that ultimately he was the reason for all the destruction that was brought to the world and his family. However, Reseph truly redeems himself in this book!

    Reseph meets Jillian in the middle of nowhere after his memory is wiped clean, and as they both try to discover who he is, he falls in love with her. Not only does she change everything for him, but she makes him into such a better man than he even was before as Reseph. It really is a great love story, and one that requires a lot of sacrifice on both sides.

    Like the last two books, there was a lot that happened in this one too. From Lemos, Harvester, and Reaver...there are some shocking revelations as well as happy moments that come to light in this book, and it makes me so very anxious for the next book which won't be out until later this year...but I'm sure it will be worth the wait!

    I'm crossing my fingers that they bring back Hilary or change the narration. Although I think Erin may have improved a little, I was still disappointed...as it prevented this one from being really great!

    Story
    "Worth a credit"
    Would you listen to Rogue Rider again? Why?

    Larissa Ione's books don't usually end up on my re-read list, and while this one is one of the better ones I don't anticipate rushing back to read it again any time soon. If you're a huge fan of the series though, and tend to give it 5 star ratings, then I'm sure you'll want to read this one over and over.

    The main characters are both likable, with believable baggage. The story contains some fun, steamy scenes, as well as dialogue that is quite amusing in places. I think my favorite aspect of this story is that Ione doesn't simply sweep away the accumulated problems of the past four books. She handles the horsemen's re-introduction to Resef in a very credible way. She also ties up some loose ends from the series while opening the way for more stories, and there is a Harvester-related plot twist that I just loved.


    What other book might you compare Rogue Rider to and why?

    This one has the complex plot construction and tangled web of characters of all the Horsemen books. It's not a simple, fluffy romance that just happens to feature a demon--Ione has created a complex world that is always exciting to revisit.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Her voice is very dead-pan. She does an ok job differentiating male and female characters, and her reading isn't completely lacking in emotion, but there were definitely places where I thought a little more animation would have contributed to the feeling of drama the author was obviously trying to create.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Not really. There was one plot twist (see above) that made me go "Oh!" but the rest was pretty much as expected. Resef's reunion with his family was difficult to read, because as much as the discerning reader in me appreciated the believability of their initial reaction to the fact that he wasn't dead, I felt bad for him!
