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.

Note: Contains spoilers, sorry!
It’s story is quite long. I read the second book (immortal rider) first before reading this book, so… I’ve a lot in my head right now. Too much to absorb yeah, and I’m blaming myself for not reading according to the series.
Anyway, after reading Immortal Rider, I did not like that book very much. Mostly because the plot develops thickly in that book and I was quite confused at some point. I re-read some stuff to get the story right, and after finishing the whole 2nd book, I decided that I would very much like to read more into Ares and Thanatos. Because I didn’t like Limos’s part of the series, I didn’t want to review it, no point. Instead, here’s my review for Ares :)
Lords of deliverance series:
First book: Ares (war)
Second book: Limos (famine)
Third book: Thanatos (death)
Fourth book: Reseph (pestilence)
I’ll try my best. It’s a long story (and series) with awesome plot and stuff.
Cara has a rare ability even as human. She can communicate with animals and heal them easier than others. She stopped healing after an accident where her hidden power killed an attacker. Until she met, Ares, the horseman of war, she has been feeling guilty for so long.
Ares is one of the horsemen for apocalypse, and he’s drawn to war just like Limos is drawn to famine and etc. yeah.
So he ‘found’ Cara, brought her with him, and she ends up getting his Argi-dunno-what -sigh- and the story revolves around trying to protect the seal that, if broken, would bring upon war and Ares becoming evil …
In the end, Cara had some help from hellhounds and… She became immortal like she was meant to be from the moment she was born with this gift. (We all know how paranormal romance ends, yeah?) :P
P.s. Would love to own a hellhound. You gotta see how they are described in the fourth book. Like the best pets, really.
Well written. I give this book a 5/5.
