Larissa Ione - Eternal Rider

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.

Comment: I've finished this book last night.
I think this author has managed to construct and make such an interesting's really amazing.
Each book is a new chapter in the lives of loved characters. The reader likes to see them work to reach their hapiness and in the end everything is good or, if not, we can hope to see that in a following story.
Although the series Demonica has ended, this new story about the Horsemen of the Apocalypse is placed in the same world, with the same cast to support the action.
I loved it! I think this has two sides that can be understood: it's a smart idea by the author in order to keep things straight and also a gift to the faithful reader who enjoys seeing loved characters and the ones who weren't protagonists so far, still alive and perhaps to hope for a story with them.

The book stars the new series and right now the world is in danger of reaching the apolcalypse because the 4 horseman are close to break the seals that will turn them evil. One of them is already a villain and another one is close, but Cara shows up and has a role that might prevent that from happening. Ares, the knight that will become War, gets stuck with her and both have to deal with it and the personal evolution so they can be happy in the end.
As usual, the author has managed to connect legends and writing skills and the result is a very good story, great action and characters, interesting twists, believable solutions withinh the world created...
Very good indeed.
I hope the series keeps this faithful and dedicated to what we've come to expect of it.
