Review:


Thanatos, the Horseman known as Death, has kept himself apart for his very very long life. Cursed, he doesn't dream about a family, a wife, a real life. Or at least, he tries not to dream of those things. Because some things can't be changed. 
Until Regan, an Aegis slayer, comes into his life. Regan and Thanatos meet in book two, Immortal Rider. And if you haven't read book two yet, I suggest not beginning at book three. These two built up their turbulent relationship in book two, and book three is where it finally explodes. You won't want to miss any second of it.

I loved Thanatos, a strong yet tortured guy. Sure, he may harbor souls he collects as death in his armour, and yes, they may threaten to be unleashed at any mortals at any time, killing them instantly, but hey. We all have our problems. He was such a wonderful contrast to the other males in the two series so far. He has a deep sensitivity, totally hidden because of his curse and job as Death. He has problems expressing himself, and the slightest touch can send Regan into a spin. Because beneath it all, Thanatos is a gentle soul with a hell of a job. But he's also crazy mad at Regan, for her betrayal in book two. 

No, I'm not going to tell you what she did. 

Regan is tough as nails, but she's had a hard life. Constantly passed around after being orphaned, her only self worth lies in being a slayer. And whatever that life may entail, good and bad.

Fun, very sexy and warm hearted, this is my favorite book in the series so far. The story is fast, and there's a lot happening in this book. It's the strongest yet, in my opinion, and I can't wait for book four. 

Why are you even here? You need to run out and buy books two and three. (and one, while you're at it.)
Sheesh. Some people.

  1. I have to give this series a try. It sounds fabulous and I have a hard time deciding on romances since I am not familiar with the authors as much. Thanks for the great review.
