Eternal Rider Written by: Larissa Ione

His name is Ares, and the fate of mankind rests on his powerful shoulders.  If he falls to the forces of evil, the world falls too.  As one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, he is far stronger than any mortal, but even he cannot fight his destiny forever.  Not when his own brother plots against him....

Yet there is one last hope.  Gifted in a way other humans can't-or won't-understand, Cara Thornhart is the key to both this Horseman's safety and his doom.  But involving Cara will prove treacherous, even beyond the maddening dangerous desire that seizes them the moment they meet.  For staving off eternal darkness could have a staggering cost:  Cara's life.

My Review:

 Branching off from her extra steamy sex demons and Underworld General, you are plunged into a new level of hell with three new yummy fantasy creatures(and their little sister ). This twist on the biblical four horsemen sheds a new light on how the end of times could be one hot ride.  Saddled up on his magnificent stead, Ares is the kind of creature that would turn even the most chaste of females to a puddle of  mush, and this is before he removes his clothing.  He lives up to his name magnificently, especially in the heat of battle and in passion. The book mixes together some old theories of different ancient societies and ends up blending them together nicely.  Our hero has many of his own demons (literally and figuratively) to fight along his crusade to stop the Apocalypse from starting. He begins by dragging Cara in to his story to protect her but ends up with other ideas once he gets to know her.  His horse adds a bit of humor to the tale and turns out to be an enchanting and lovable sidekick. This book was edgy, with its continual twists and turns, but keeps you reeled in until the ride is over. Who knew the end of days could be sooooooo hot?
