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....

Sexy, powerful, and immortal, Limos is on a crash course with destiny. She's been marked as Satan's bride and her jealous fiance' wants her all to himself. The only way this Horseman can keep herself--and everyone else--safe is to keep her distance.

Arik Wagner knows the saying "love hurts" better than most, yet he never thought stealing a kiss from Limos would land him in Hell. Literally. It takes all his military training to survive the demon torture, but once he's topside, Arik realizes that the agony has just begun. With the Apocalypse looming and Satan demanding his bride, will Arik and Limos surrender to the desire smoldering between them? Or will giving in to their passion unleash hell on earth?

Wow, what a ride. This book is over 400 pages, and usually that would keep most people away, because most authors can not keep your attention for that many pages. But most authors are not Larissa Ione. She has a lot to say. And it takes time and pages to weave the storyline she spins. There are layers and layers going on in this one. At first, I really didn't like Arik. He had a lot of attitude, wasn't a likable character, but I guess spending time in Hell can mellow a person quickly. He turned out to be a great "hero" with a lot of 'hotness' going on. Limos has spent her 5000 years lying to everyone around her, but when Arik survives Hell for her sake, she starts to soften. She skirted the edges of becoming the wheepy woman I rarely like. But Ione keeps Limos in-between the scary Horseman and the woman Limos wants to be. It worked. This book is an important part of the series, and if you haven't read the Demonica series, I suggest you start there so you know who ALL the characters are because we see most of them frequently in this one. And we are given a good head start into the next one with the events surrounding Than's drama. I love this series.
