They are here. They ride. The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.
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.
After Sin’s book in the Demonica series, I was SO happy that it led into the Lords of Deliverance. Ares’s appearance in Sin Undone brings us into the story of trying to stop Pestilence and keeping Ares’s agimorti safe so that his seal does not break.
Cara’s powers are awesome. She believes that they are deadly, but we see that her control are what makes the powers good or bad. When she finds herself pulled into this unbelievable world she gets some pretty cool protectors. Her time is running out though, and it falls to Ares’s to find a way to keep the curse that has fallen to her from killing her. Especially since she is sneaking behind his walls, making him feel things he hasn’t allowed himself in thousands of years. Oh, but surely his feelings aren’t part of the reason he needs to save her. Oh no. The ticking time bomb not only counts down Cara’s life, but the life of all mankind. Cara’s life could bring about the apocalypse.
I loved so many things in this book. The dynamic of facing that your brother is evil, but yet still looking for a way to save him, Cara’s cool gift and what happens to it in the end, to the crazy, mass confusion of an ending. It was a wild ride and ending! I found myself transfixed to the audio, holding my breath, terrified of the result of that ending! Not to mention my favorite Seminist demon got to join the fray!
The audio was really great. I was pulled into this story and it just kept me mesmerized. I was so immersed in this world that I don’t think I could find any fault with the audio at all. I just wasn’t aware of it.
