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 before…to 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 newfound thirst for an angel’s blood…

Reaver is pure freaking awesome! It’s intense, exciting, and sexy, and another excellent addition to the incredible Lords of Deliverance series. Larissa Ione is a master at paranormal romance. To be honest, it’s been a while since I’ve read any books from that genre, but what better way to go than with Larissa Ione? I adore her writing, which had me laughing out loud numerous times, and since you know it’s Larissa Ione, it’s hot hot hot! Scorching hot, really. Reaver is one sexy angel.

In Reaver, the fifth book of the series, we finally, finally get the whole truth with Reaver and Harvester’s past. And let me tell you, it’s truly heartbreaking. Both Reaver and Harvester have made terrible mistakes, and accepted the consequences, but at least they own up to them. At the beginning of the story, Harvester is taken by Satan (her father!) and tortured for being a traitor. She used to be an angel, but she gave up her wings to become a fallen angel and work as an undercover agent in hell. And guess who goes to rescue her? Reaver!

Reaver has always been a side character in the previous books, but now he’s up front and center, and I truly wasn’t disappointed with his story. He’s a hilarious character, so snarky and sarcastic, but he’s a good guy at heart. All he really wants is to get back his memories of the past. Well, that’s maybe not all he wants. Ever since finding out that Harvester has been working on the good side, he can’t get her out of his head.

I really liked Harvester’s character. She has a lot of depth, and she’s very complicated. But I loved how she’s so tough and badass. Her time in hell has hardened her heart, and because of her past with Reaver, she hates him, even though she’s attracted to him. They have an incredible chemistry together. The only thing I wish could be better was if there was more Harvester and Reaver time. I liked that they have history together, but I really wanted more romance! But the action and twists and turns were so good that I forgave that part. Even though there wasn’t as much romance as I wanted, I knew that Reaver and Harvester were perfect for each other. They are crazy hot together, but they can also be sweet, and I adored that part of their relationship.

And the action! Oh my god, it was crazy intense. Reaver kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time reading, and there were things that I never saw coming. What a wild ride Reaver is. It’s thrilling, heart-pounding, hot, intense, and everything I expected for these two incredibly complex angels. Fans of the series won’t be disappointed with Reaver.

5 hearts
