Thanatos, the most deadly Horseman of the Apocalypse, has endured thousands of years of celibacy to prevent the end of days. But just one night with the wickedly sexy Aegis Guardian, ReganCooper, shatters centuries of resolve. Yet their passion comes with a price. And Thanatos must face a truth more terrifying than an apocalypse-he's about to become a father. Demon-slayer Regan Cooper never imagined herself the maternal type, but with the fate of the world hanging in the balance she had no choice but to seduce Thanatos and bear his child. Now, as the final battle draws closer and his rage at being betrayed is overshadowed by an undeniable passion for the mother of his child, Thanatos has a life-shattering realization: To save the world, he must sacrifice the only thing he's ever wanted-a family. OMFG! Where to start, where to start? Larissa has reminded me why I love to read in the first place, I literally devoured this book in a day... Yeah, it was that good! It captured me and sucked me in so I couldn't put it down until I was finished. I'm so serious, I was reading this while I was at my Internship.

My Review:
The story picks up with Regan being protected in the Aegis headquarters and that's when things get all wound up, Thanatos finds out where Regan is and I'm not going to tell you what happens from there. I know there was a lot of mixed feelings about the scene in Immortal Rider with Regan and Than... you guys know what I'm talking about. Well when I read it I was baffled at first because I considered it rape... but trust and believe me on this one Larissa knew what she was doing! I wish I would have trusted her to begin with, and I will never doubt her again. I am so glad that she took the risk she did because it put a lot of pieces together in Lethal Rider. You really get to see who Regan truly is and that is a selfless, brave, fighter! With that being said let me get back to why I enjoyed Lethal Rider oh so much.

Thanatos and Regan's relationship is the MAIN reason... it didn't happen all at once, and they didn't commit themselves to a relationship at first. They both really got to know each other, and see sides of each other that other people have never seen. Their relationship was amazing! Than and Regan's sexual tension had me burning up like a 800 degree oven... that's how hot it was. There are a lot of great things revealed in this book that I will let you discover on your own because it makes the book so enjoyable. I had a lot of OMG, really moments. I am so glad that Thanatos finally gets his heart's desire... a child. While the relationship was awesome, what was even more awesome is Regan and Thanatos's love and sacrifice for their baby. Their baby is what really brought them so close together.

This was a kick ass, burning hot, and adventurous book. This is definitely 2012 release you DO NOT want to miss, I loved every second of it and can't get it out of my head after reading it. The sneak peak for Rogue Rider killed/teased me so bad! Can't wait to get my hands on the fourth book... I can't wait to see what the lovely Larissa has in store for Reseph!
