I had a blast "chatting" with AH about Lethal Rider.... check it out here...http://badassbookreviews.com/arc-review-lethal-rider-by-larissa-ione/Larissa Ione is by far, one of my favorite authors. In fact, I've not rated any of her books less than 5 stars. When I first rated books, I gave away 5 stars easily, but now- not even close. The fact that all her books still rate so highly just tells you how much I love her as an author. First, even though you technically don't have to read the Demonica series (the Demonica series starts with Pleasure Unbound Pleasure Unbound) before reading the Lords of Deliverance series, I really think you should. Some of the characters from the Demonica series show up in Lords of Deliverance series and without reading the Demonica series, you won't quite get the significance of that character.Ok, back to Larissa Ione. Not only does Ione tell a story but she manages to continue the story from book to book. She does it without coming across as trying to sell an additional book in her series. It is pretty clear that Ione knows exactly where she is going with the story. However, as a reader, you never feel like the individual book is weak. In fact, everytime Ione finishes a book in her series, I declare it my favorite. OH well. As long as she keeps writing, I'm happy.As for this story in this book, I loved the characters. I love the story behind the characters as well. Than can be humorous one minute, and down right scary the next. Regan's insecurities and vulnerability made her duty to her job admirable but at times, I wanted to yell at her. I'm glad she woke up.Overall- another 5 star read and my new Ione favorite- until the next one comes out of course.
