They are here. They ride. The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.

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.

Fan of the Demonica Series? What are you waiting for then. Larissa Ione's Demonica Series is my all-time favorite Paranormal Romance and learning that there would be a spin off I screamed with joy.

Some of you may remember Ares from the end of the last and final Demonica book, Sin Undone as the sexy warrior who was rumored to belong to Ares is the second Horsemen of the Apocalypse known as War. Ares is so hot. Okay, I know I probably had said that about all the guys in the Demonica World but it's so true.

Ares is a fighter and a bit serious at times. I am sure that Ares drove a few people crazy at times. He was an ass a lot of the time to his future lover, Cara. He fights his feelings for her and it is just so frustrating to watch and you're going crazy for the whole book wondering when he is going to accept that he is in love with Cara. But when they finally do get it on they became so hot that steam came out of the pages.

"No bra,” he said against her mouth. “Thank you. I hate those things. Dumbest human invention. Ever."

Cara would not be my favorite heroine out of the other heroines from the Demonica Series, but she was quite interesting I'll admit. She has had a troubling past and part of that past has to do with this special gift she has. At the beginning I felt that Cara was too weak, but she did grow into a woman that is suitable for Ares. She has to fight for her life and she turns into a real warrior.

We do get guest appearances from our favorite Demonica characters and it was quite a treat. I missed them so much. But to give the question out was ETERNAL RIDER better than Demonica series? I can't give that out yet for the fact that only one book of the spin off series, Lord of the Deliverance is out, but right now I am still more in love with the Demonica series.

I am looking forward to reading about the other Horsemen of the Apocalypse and I hope that they are just as great and Ares was because I am ready for more
