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, Regan Cooper, 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.
Lethal Rider was a really brilliant read. I was hooked from the first chapter. Even though Thanatos is a total badass, I really enjoyed his and Regan's story. It's not steady and there are lots of up's and down's between Regan and Than but it makes for an interesting read because Than isn't the type that sticks to his characteristics. He knows who he is and what he is. He's a gentle giant at times with Regan yet he won't hesitate to kill his enemies. He may use some methods Regan doesn't agree with but in the end they work it out. With Regan, Than becomes a better character and understands how he can be a better person for Regan and his unborn child. He realises some things about himself that he's missed because he's been too consumed by his actions.
Which I think is also what I like about Regan. Once she's kidnapped by Than and as there relationship grows and changes and the storyline evolves you not only see more of Than but the growth of Regan and how she starts to believe in herself as a human being instead of just of her gifts and what use she can be.
Lethal Rider like the previous two books still includes the other characters and more of the overall storyline. You see how Limos and Arik are adjusting to being together and of their future plans. You see more of Ares, Cara and her beloved hell hounds.
The family support with each couple is just as vital and important as each couple and following their relationship. Which is what lies at the core of each book, even with Pestilence in the background reeking havoc they all stay connected, help each other in anyway they can and they root for each other.
Lethal Rider is a brilliant book, I have since also bought the paperback version of this series because I enjoy it so much. A definite must read but would recommend reading within the series to have a better understanding.
