The prophecies were there but no one listened. Until now. They are the Lords of Deliverance and they have the power to ward off Doomsday . . . or let it ride.
Jillian Cardiff came to this remote mountain town to forget the demon attack that almost killed her. Instead, she rescues – and falls for – a gorgeous stranger who has no memory of anything other than his name. Handsome, charming and protective, Reseph seems like the kind of man that Jillian can trust. But with hints of a troubling history of his own, he’s also the kind of man that can be very dangerous . . .
Reseph may not know his background, or why he mysteriously appeared in Jillian’s life, but he knows he wants to stay. Yet when Jillian’s neighbours are killed and demon hunters arrive on the scene, Reseph fears that he’s putting Jillian in danger. And once it’s revealed that Reseph is also Pestilence, the Horseman responsible for ravaging the world with death and destruction, he and Jillian must face the greatest challenge of all: can they forget the horrors of a chilling past to save the future they both desire?

Note: Contains spoilers, sorry!
After Ares’s side of the story, I was eager to jump to Reseph’s story. Yeah I’m like that, don’t judge, heheh. If you haven’t already, read Ares’s review (eternal rider) first before reading this one, it’ll make a lot more sense with me ranting out there.
So… The evil pestilence changed to the sweet loving Reseph in this last book of the series. After all the gruesome evil he has done, I wanted to know what would happen to him. Forgiven, or not. I vote forgiven, because that’s how paranormal romance books normally go… Oh yeah, don’t forget the mate part :P
Because I read this fourth book first and skipped the third, I got to know the twist and turns that I missed and I’m glad because I’m impatient and there seems to be a lot of twists in the third book.
So it goes like that…
Ares’s book: Sweet loving
Limos’s book: Thick plot
Thanatos: Twists and turns
Reseph: Hope and end
In the story, Reseph was rid of pestilence and he sort of became himself again. He met Jillian who was kind enough to ‘save him’ and… The first part of the book was soooooo sweet! Here’s an example:
Smoke drifted out of the sink, billowing up around a stream of rushing water. “Oh, uh… hi.” Reseph shot her a sheepish grin over his shoulder. “I tried to make you breakfast.”
Aww can anyone be cuter!
Anyway, in the end, Reseph got to have an important piece of evil, and a piece of heaven to make him powerful enough to defeat Lucifer. Well, and he did! In a scene of mental turmoil, tornado, gates opening…etc… And let’s not forget the courageous Jillian. Didn’t really like it though, it was over in a few. I was like, what? That’s it? That’s how Lucifer is defeated? =.=
Okay so anyway, evil watcher Harvester…. Shit that brought tears to my eyes. I mean, I was hating her for 2 books long and now she’s the goodie angel? I’m so hurt. Then again, this is one of the twists that I’m not going to elaborate. You’ll know it if you read it.
I’m so glad the fourth book is coming up, and this time, my best guesses Reaver with Harvester. He’s been feeling for her since the second book. I want them to be happy. Ever. Both of them did the most work in the series. One fathered and one sacrificed. And with Pestilence controlled and Lucifer gone, I’m willing to bet Satan is coming up next. Gosh, I can’t wait!
I give this book a 4/5.
