Don't miss the epic conclusion to the New York Times bestselling Demonica series that Kirkus calls "sexy, creative, darkly fanciful and chock full of action!"

For five thousand years, Revenant believed he was alone in the world, a fallen angel beyond any redemption. Now he finds he has a twin brother who had all the light and love Revenant was denied. Caught in a tug of war between Heaven and Hell, he must weigh his thirst for revenge against his desire for a mysterious female named Blaspheme-a female whose very origins could deliver him into salvation . . . or destruction.

Blaspheme has a deadly secret: she's the forbidden offspring of an angel and a fallen angel. Hunted by both heavenly and satanic forces, she has survived only by laying low and trusting no one. When Revenant claims he can save them both, how can she possibly believe him? But the powerful angel is persistence incarnate and for Blaspheme, there's no place she can hide in Heaven or Hell where he won't find her . . .

Brilliant, Larissa Ione has done it again! I loved Revenant, Rarely a series comes along that pulls you in from the very first page and has you invested in both the storyline and characters anxiously waiting for each new book as if you were a part of their world. Larissa Ione has done that for me with The Demonica/Lords of Deliverance these series truly are exceptional.

Revenant is an emotional addition to the Lords of Deliverance series. I've been waiting on his story, and was so glad when release date rolled around. Revenant was brought up in Hell and had to endure and survive both emotional and physical torment. His brother, Reaver was chosen to live in Heaven when they were born. Add in his mother's death and his part in it and it has definitely caused some resentment and bitterness in Revenant. He's a really strong character, and all alpha male. A bit flawed, and a stickler for the rules I was intrigued how it would turn out when he sets his sights on Blaspheme.  Blaspheme is a false angel, or so she leads everyone to believe. When her secret is slowly being revealed, she has to find a way not to be hunted and killed. You see, she's half angel and half fallen angel. That's a big no no in their world, so with her cover fading, angels are starting to come around and hunt both her and her mother. I really enjoyed Blaspheme's character. She's trying so hard to stay away from Revenant, but you can just see the tension between to two from the start. Larissa Ione is by far one of my favorite authors. I started the Lords of Deliverance late in the game and quickly picked up several of the books to marathon read. Since I'm all caught up, I loved that I saw glimpses into some of the previous main characters in other books in this series. The world is addicting, I highly recommend this series as a whole if you're looking for an Urban Fantasy with some Paranormal Romance tossed in.

NUMBER OF HEARTS: 5 REVIEW:  If you have not read Reaver. Please stop here. You can’t understand Revenant without knowing what happened in Reaver’s book. That was your warning.  Revenant is a very complicated creature. In ways he reminds me a lot of Wraith (if you have not read Wraith’s book you need to). I can’t blame Revenant at all for how he feels or how he reacts. The poor guys has literally been through Hell. You can’t not root for him. Revenant is also his own worst enemy. But sometimes taking a leap of faith is the only thing you can do when you are at the end of your rope.  Blaspheme is saucy. I really like her. She gives Revenant a run for his money every step of the way. But Blas has her own set of issues that she is dealing with. Issues that if it gets out could mean her death. Blas will soon learn that trust is an important tool that she can’t live without. Only question is who can she really trust with her secret.  Oh man! I honestly can not get over the fact of how much I love Larissa Ione and her Demonica series. My only issue with this book is that I read it way too fast and wanted more. More Revenant, more Blaspheme, more sexy time, more of everything and everyone in the Demonica/Lords of Deliverance world.  It will truly be a very sad day when she writes the final chapter in this series. Let hope that the characters of the Demonica world keep invading her thoughts for year and years to come. I am already looking forward to Hades’ story which will be out in 2015 as part of the 1001 Dark Nights. Until then, you need to go get catch up on this series.  Disclaimer:  I received a complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley & Forever (Grand Central Publishing) in exchange for an honest review. This review is my own opinion and not a paid review.

There were a lot of liars and lies floating around in this story. Revenant was bitter after learning the truth about his birth, Reaver, his mother, what they'd been forced to endure and his role in her death. This time we got the full scope of the machinations going on in both Heaven and Sheoul, and how our beloved characters had been used as pawns for the greater advantage. Heaven was blackmailing him and trying to screw him over, Satan was doing the same, Reaver and everyone else seemed to have given up on him or just flat out thought the worst of him, all except Blaspheme. He lived by rules and hated liars, with good reason. His attraction to Blas quickly gave way to more. She didn't treat him the way anyone else did, and she surprised him by making him feel needed. He'd never known comfort or trust except from his mother, until Blas. Blas had an equally tumultuous life, but at least her mother had always done what was best for her. Even though she had plenty of reasons to go into hiding and cower, she never let that stop her from helping others. She was a well-rounded heroine. Her subterfuge and consequent fear of being caught made her extremely cautious, but like I mentioned before, she still put others before herself. She was just so "good". I loved the way Rev and Blas interacted with one another. There were so many great moments of dialogue between them, from snarky to heartfelt, and a few times I was sobbing right along with her. The sex was quick and hot (limited to three scenes), and the story wasn't upstaged by the love scenes at all.  What I enjoyed the most about this story was the tension created by Blaspheme's secret and knowing that Revenant would probably not react well if he learned about it any other way than from her. The plan to get rid of Gethel and subsequently Lucifer was still at the forefront. Despite a few hiccups along the way, there was a most satisfying ending. I hated one of the archangels from Reaver and Harvester's story. I think a lot of readers felt the same way, so they'll enjoy one scene in particular.  I loved this story, especially the interesting conversation between Rev and Metatron at the end. We know that stopping the apocalypse from ever occurring is probably a pipe dream, so if the series ended here, it would be in a good place where everyone could be happy and loved. At least for a thousand years.  Fantastic, action-packed, nail-biting suspense, and a very heartwarming romance. I'll be adding the paperback to my LI collection.

Oh wow! What a great read. In typically Ms Ione fashion, it was filled with tons of humor, action, and sexiness. The difference with this from previous books was the tears got jerked a bit toward the end. I'm really hoping that this isn't the end of a great series, but if it is, Ms Ione has ended it on such a great tip. Rev is full of bad boy goodness that makes you want to gobble him up. He's attracted (ridiculously, and very cutely so) to Blas and yet she's hiding something from him. With his past, deception isn't something he looks at too kindly. Toss in Satan's new curiosity for her and his evil offspring bringing on new hell on earth, and the protective instincts fly. Which side of ten world does Rev end on? Well, that'd be a spoiler readers will want to find out themselves. This was a great book, one I couldn't put down, and one I'll want to read again....soon.

Revenant/Rev believed he was a fallen angel for five thousand years. But how could someone born and raised in Sheole- the demon realm- be considered an angel. Even what he was fed with his mother’s milk was demon blood as a baby. Memories that had been taken from Rev had been returned to him two weeks sgo. Now Rev wished he didn’t have those memories at all. But he did have a twin brother who was the opposite of Rev. Then there was Blaspheme who was a doctor at Underground General and Rev wanted her. Rev had been raised in a dungeon with torture specialists. Blas was the daughter of a fallen angel and angel. Blas mother Deva had been cut open by an angel seriously hurt and she warned Blas they would be looking for her and hunt Blas until the end of time. Reaver was Rev’s twin brother but they did not get along. Rev learned he was a shadow angel which is very rare. Then Reaver informs Rev that Lucifer is about to be reborn. Lucifer had spent his life trying to ruin Rev’s life. Lucifer was Satin’s right hand man and in the newest incarnation Satin’s son. As Blas and Rev get to know each other the more they want each other. I don’t usually read books involving angels, I don’t normally seem to get into them. But this was a good story and I really enjoyed it.I found this had a good plot. This story made me laugh at times and at other times I choked up. All Rev really wanted was to be accepted and loved. This is the last story in a series and for everything to come together you really need to read the rest of this series in order. Rev was a butt most of the time but somehow a lovable butt. The writing was good as was the plot. I loved the twists and turns of this story especially involving Rev and Blas. I recommend. I received an ARC of this story for an honest review.

Larissa Ione’s Revenant is a praiseworthy addition to the Lords of Deliverance Series. After five thousand years, fallen angel, Revenant discovers he has a twin brother who was given a life filled with love versus his life of darkness. Blaspheme has a deadly secrete; she is the forbidden offspring of a fallen angel and an angel. Rev plans on saving them both. I love Larissa Ione’s Revenant. The plot was creative and well-developed. I was riveted throughout the entire story. Larissa Ione’s writing style is impeccable. Her descriptions are vivid, notably of the underworld. There were a lot of interesting conflicts throughout the story, especially with Satan. My heart went out to Revenant for having his memory wiped. He was lied to and abused for thousands of years. I enjoyed his relationship with Blaspheme. The ending of the story had me on the edge of my seat. Complimentary copy provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

I waited very impatiently for this book and it was worth the wait. I just finished rereading it and decided i would comment. The characters are well defined, and you get a real understanding for them and their pasts. prepared to spend the day reading, because you wont be able to put it down.

I found myself kind of bored with the character, Revenant. I'm not sure if it was my frame of mind while reading it, but I wanted more from him. He wasn't as dynamic as Reaver. At first it was hard to get into the story. Revenant had a lot to live up to and in the beginning he didn't come off as strong. We got to know Reaver throughout the whole Demonica and Lords of Deliverance series and Reaver's book was intense!! Revenant, at first does not stack up to his twin Reaver. But as the story progresses, it does pick up emotionally and passionately. About half way through the story, his relationship with Blasepheme got entertaining and passionate. I especially loved the scene in the hospital after Revenant finds out that she is vyrme and accuses her of lying. That scene is great and after that point their relationship becomes stronger and more open with each other. The epic battle near the end of the story was intense! The emotional connection between Revenant and Blasepheme was beautiful. I love happy endings. In the end the story wrapped up well, but that is expected from Larissa Ione, she knows how to write a dark and delicious romance story. It wasn't as intense as Reaver, but it didn't disappoint either. I enjoyed it and I enjoyed how it all ended for the characters. Wonderful read and I enjoy this series.

This is an epic romance. The world building, the love story, action, characters, and climax are all wonderful. Ione is at the top of her writing game.  The heroine is full realized as her own person. She is doctor She is very comfortable and confident with her sexuality which is always great to see. Her dilemma's are compelling and we get to watch her fall in love.  The hero is broody, pragmatic, and yet thoughtful in all his bad angelness. He is such a badass. We get see my solve the mystery of himself and fall in love love. The closing series of the series are everything a reader could want.  This book is not a gory as the ones before it (yeah!) and much more emotionial powerful as all the prophesies play out. Epic. And no one deserves an HEA more than these two.  I was given this book for my honest review. So, there you have it

Blaspheme is a doctor is a False Angel but she's really a vyrmn, the child of an angel and a fallen angel. The spell that protects her is fading and she must find a way to fix it. Revenant is a fallen angel who for five thousand years thought he was alone. Until his memories are brought back  and he discovers he has a twin. In between trying to keep Lucifer from being reborned and saving Blas from being killed, they stay busy. Now Satan wants Blas to prove Rev's loyalty but Satan is in for a big surprise. Excellent story. Loved Rev and Blas. A couple of gross parts but some pretty hot sex.
