Larissa Ione--Rogue Rider (Lords of Deliverence #4)

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.

{4 stars}
This has been a great 4 part series. I love the way Ione takes us from one series stream to another, and now looks like we are going back to the Demonica series. After reading all 4 of the Horsemen books, I like Reseph the best. He seemed the most human to me. And Jillian is the perfect compliment to his more "human" side. The Horsemen have had a long lonely existence, centuries long, and now they finally have answers to some major questions. Everything you thought you knew about the Horsemen will be turned upside down with this series. They may be supernatural creatures, half demon, half angel, but they still crave what we all and acceptance. My only (half hearted) complaint is that we had such a great buildup to, what we think, is the final battle, but it seemed like we went thru it in "fast forward". I suppose that is so we can get all those still remaining unanswered questions in the next book. But I felt like it was very anticlimactic. {shrug} Oh well, on to the next book, I'm happy that Ione isn't going to leave us with this one, we get to "patiently" wait for Reaver's story next.
