Author: Larissa Ione
Publisher: Grand Central Publishing
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.
While this is the first book in a new series by Larissa Ione, it is a direct follow from her five book Demonica series (starting with Pleasure Unbound). Ione's fun and sexy characters and a well constructed world come together for a very entertaining romp. A perfect bit of escapism.
Holy moly... just look at that cover alone!
