Reaver is an angel with a past, a record, and a less-than-heavenly attitude. Powerful enough to fight alongside the fiercest battle angels-and crazy enough to risk his wings on a one-way mission to hell-he's agreed to go where no angel has ever gone steal the most seductive and dangerous prize of Satan himself.


Harvester is one of the Fallen, a once-heroic angel who sacrificed her wings to work as an undercover agent in hell. But now her cover has been blown, and she's been doomed to an eternity of agonizing torture. Even if Reaver can snatch her away from Satan's lair, even if they can fight their way out of the underworld's darkest depths, there is one thing Harvester can never escape-her new-found thirst for an angel's blood..

Book Review 

Author, Larissa Ione, has always been a go-to author for me. Her books just have that extra "umph" that pushes it over the edge and makes me want to sink into the pages and live there.

Her fifth installment in the Lords of Deliverance series is another perfect example of how talented this woman really is. 

Her world of demons, angels, fallen angels, shifters, vamps, hypnotic, addictive, and action-packed. I have no freaking clue how she keeps up with all the secondary characters, much less, the complexity of her lexicon and "universe", but she does it. And does it well.

Reaver has been a book that I have been waiting for--dying for--and she has done it justice.  Sometimes, when you want a favorite character's story so bad, you end up being disappointed when it's finally published. But that was NOT the case with Reaver.

Reaver is determined to rescue Harvester from Sheoul (Hell), who is currently suffering at the hands of Satan. Even knowing that he is breaking all the rules and could lose his recently earned wings, Reaver is resolute with his plans to sneak into Shoal and take Harvester with him. 

There is so much packed in this book. A lot of cameos with some of Ione's past characters--Ares, Than, Eidolon, Joseph, Limos, Arik,  etc...
Introduction of new characters--Bolas, Metring, Lorelia, Raphael, Tavin, etc...
AND...a promising developing story between Blaspheme and Revenant. 

Huge secrets are finally revealed. We finally get to know what exactly happened between Reaver and Harvester when they were known as Yenrieth and Jerrine. 
Hints are thrown left and right for future big reveals. (What exactly is Blaspheme hiding?)

Ione brilliantly takes a character - Harvester - and redeems her without taking away the sauciness she was famous for dishing out to Reaver and the Horseman.  After all, Harvester is a perfect blend of good and bad. 

Reaver is a sexy combination of everything Ione is known for--steamy paranormal lovin' with an in-your-face story.
