Lethal Rider by Larissa Ione
Pub­lisher: Piatkus Books
Pages: Paperback, UK, 464 pages
Series: Lords of Deliverance
Pub­li­ca­tion date: May 22nd 2012

Thanatos, the most deadly Horseman of the Apocalypse, has endured thousands of years of celibacy to prevent the end of days. But just one night with the wickedly sexy Aegis Guardian, Regan Cooper, shatters centuries of resolve. Yet their passion comes with a price. And Thanatos must face a truth more terrifying than an apocalypse-he's about to become a father.

Demon-slayer Regan Cooper never imagined herself the maternal type, but with the fate of the world hanging in the balance she had no choice but to seduce Thanatos and bear his child. Now, as the final battle draws closer and his rage at being betrayed is overshadowed by an undeniable passion for the mother of his child, Thanatos has a life-shattering realization: To save the world, he must sacrifice the only thing he's ever wanted-a family.

From virgin to dad in zero to sixty.

Long story short
After stealing the virginity of Thanatos, fourth Horseman of the Apocalypse, Regan, an Aegis Guardian, gets pregnant and almost destroys the world. Thanatos wants to kill her because she lied to him in order to steal his semen virginity. Regan has the hots for Than. Than has the hots for Regan. The end.

My thoughts
I was extremely unhappy with the fact that Regan is pregnant in Lethal Rider because I could not stand the thought of going through a pregnancy-related book. Lucky for me the book wasn’t that bad.

Larissa Ione is very good with entertaining the bored reader. When she isn’t writing about chastity belts, that is. When she writes about pregnant Aegis Guardians and Death, she gets pretty good.

Have no fear, Lethal Rider has the typical Paranormal Romance moments. For example, Regan fucked Than, pun intended, and his punishment is to force her to have sex with him ever night.
Slutty Student: “ I’ve been a bad bad student.”
Perv Professor: “Well then I’ll just have to punish you a bit. Bend over so I can spank your perky ass.”

Makes total sense.

Anywho, apart from these stupid, if I may call them that, scenes Lethal Rider was a decent read. It went on fast and I didn’t feel the need to gouge out my eyes or vomit because of too much sweetness.

Oh, and by the way, am I the only one who envisions Pestilence as looking like Loki?

To read or not to read?
I would recommend Lethal Rider to those who have already read the previous Lords of Deliverance books. If you have read theDemonica series, even better. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, then I suggest you start either with Eternal Rider or Pleasure Unbound. The story in Lethal Rider is tightly related to these books, and you’ll be lost like a cheerleader at Comic-Con if you don’t allow yourself to be properly introduced to Larissa Ione’s universe.

Favorite quote
“Obviously,” Than said, “she’s better. No thanks to you. But she’s having … what are they called? Breaking Dicks?”
“Braxton Hicks,” Shade muttered.
