Feature & Giveaway: Eternal Rider by Larissa Ione

Tuesday, April 5





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.

Five Fun Facts:
  1. Like the Demonica series, the new Lords of Deliverance series sports a defining symbol on the front of the book. As I always say, publishing a book is a team effort, and with this new series, my husband was part of the team—he designed the symbol!
  2. Cara, the heroine in Eternal Rider, loves flannel pajamas. I gave her blue penguin pajamas after seeing a set I liked in a catalog...and then I sent the same pair to my editor for Christmas, so my heroine and editor have the same PJs!
  3. The Bed and Breakfast in York, where Cara stays while in England, is the same one I stayed in during my last trip to the U.K. Ares lives on an island based on a small Greek island I once visited, and Limos lives on a remote Hawaiian beach area I've been to. Clearly, I like to write settings I know!
  4. It seems like I can never write a book while in a single state, and Eternal Rider was no different. The first Lords of Deliverance book was written in Oregon, Washington, and Wisconsin.
  5. The Lords of Deliverance series has been in the works since before the first book in the Demonica series was even written—I've been fascinated by the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse since I was young, but although I had the characters in my head for years, it took Sin from Sin Undone to bring their stories to life.

I was saddened to see the end of the Demonica series but then I saw the new series coming "Lords of Deliverance " and was very excited. Larissa Ione writes amazing characters and storylines. I love reading anything she writes and so I'm very excited to start this new series and meet Ares.I definitely want to ride with The Four Horsemen. :)GFC follower under Lucky47. Email subscriber.

I have wanted to read this series since Larissa first announced she was writing a spin off and then introduced us to them in Sin Undone. Then add in the torment of reading the excerts and I was hooked!

Larissa Ione is one of the greatest authors out there in this genre and she has an amazing imagination as well so her books are able to pull you into the story and make you (or at least me) feel like I am part of the story. She makes me very invested in the lives of those I am reading about. Therefore I am really looking forward to starting this next journey with the 4 Horsemen and all they encounter along the way!

I just finished reading Sin Undone. This was the first book I have read by Larissa and I really enjoyed it. I got a glimpse of one of the Horseman of the Apocalypse in this book and can't wait to read more about him.

I was actually sad when I first found out that Sin Undone was the last book in the Demonica series. But then I got excited about this book being set in the same world. This book looks so good. Ares looks like one hot horsemen and I can't wait to see what happens with him and Cara.

WHY? You need to ask!?! Let's see...where to begin.

It's penned by the most awesome Larissa Ione.

It's about Ares, the God of War. Can you say ALPHA!?!

And that's for starters.

I'm looking forward to Larissa's treatment of the Horsemen. My favorite treatment so far is Terry Pratchett's but that's more fun and funny than anything else.

I would like to win this book because I am a fan of Larissa's Demonica series and would love to win a copy of the first in her spin-off series! I want to read Eternal Rider because I love how it's set in the same world as the Demonica books, but it also has a very interesting mythology and premise that has definitely hooked me in!

Thanks for the chance!

My FREE Kindle Quest

I've wanted a Kindle for what seems like forever, but haven't been able to afford it (and that's saying something since I can justify the cost of just about ANYTHING that I really want). I've tried winning one in one of the many giveaways that have taken place over the couple of years, but with no luck :( So I've decided to take matters in hand so to speak :) I've now decided that I am going to accumulate enough Swagbucks from my Swabucks searches to buy one...so in essence my new Kindle will be FREE...funded entirely by my internet searches done on Swagbucks. I'll keep you informed of the Great Kindle Quest below (in case you're interested....if not feel free to just skip over this part, but really who wouldn't be interested in a FREE Kindle?)
Goal: $119
Current Swagbucks Amazon Gift Card balance: $90.00
If you'd like to learn how you can earn Swagbucks and earn your own Amazon Gift Cards to buy books, a Kindle or other merchandise sold at Amazon contact me and I would be more than happy to tell you how I plan to go about it. (just so you know you can earn both Amazon.com and Amazon.ca gift cards on this rewards site)
