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.

Demonica For Animal Lovers!
Eternal Rider is the first in a new series set in the Demonica world.
I loved this book as much as any from the Demonica series. The bad guys, the action, the romance, the end of the world...it's all great stuff, but Larissa Ione threw in an additional element that hooked me from the beginning: the animals. Animals in this book are essential to the story. The Horsemen aren't complete without their horses. I truly hope that the other horses are given as much "space on the page" in future books as Battle was given in Eternal Rider. I loved him almost as much as Hal..the hellhound puppy. I really want Hal (and family) to make at least brief appearances during the rest of the series. Familiar faces from the Demonica series are also present, and Hillary Huber did a wonderful job with the narration.
I'm looking forward to listening to book 2 and the release of book 3 and 4.

Larissa Ione is one talented paranormal romance writer! I like to listen to paranormal romance books every once in a while but I am always more into the romance side than the paranormal side. Not with this book. Mrs. Ione has created such a rich, interesting, captivating world that catches your complete attention from the very beggining to the very end. This book is complex and I had a hard time the first few chapters keeping up with the many characters. The book even begins with a glossary of terms That I forgot half way through. Once I started to understand who was who and why they had two names then the story picked up and I loved every minute of it.
This book is a spin off from the Demonica series and I suggest that you listen to at least the first book of the Demonica series before listening to this one. This is an apocalyptic dark book but done so well it feels good. The romance is perfectly developed and the love scenes are amazing. This is such a well rounded story that you end up enjoying the romance, the action, the mystery and even the scary parts. I just finished this book and I'm starting Immortal Rider right away (which by the way has the same narrator Hillary Huber).
Narration: Hillary Huber is a great narrator! Even with a complicated story that has many characters you could always tell a different character was speaking. She added the right emotions to this book so that the scary suspenseful parts were more intense and the love scenes more pationate. I hope the publishers keep the same narrator for the rest of the series because she does a great job!
