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.

I will be doing this in love letter form since I read Books 1 to 4 back to back
“She’d read somewhere that normal, healthy men got up to twenty erections a day. Um…yep, Ares was definitely healthy.”― Larissa Ione, Eternal Rider
Love Letter to Ares/War and Cara
Dear Ares: You are what a man of war should be: logical, strategical, and focused. I love that you are loyal, hard-nosed, and clearly in charge of your surroundings. However, it was the second you got knocked on your ass by Cara and your world started spinning that I really fell in love with you! I do like that there was resolution of some of the things from your past. Now I hope you and Cara have a long and animal filled life.
Dear Cara: How can I not want to have girls night out with a girl who loves animals so dearly. I am thinking I need a hellhound except that I am pretty sure my furrbabies would just teach it how to be lazy. I love that you are strong, smart, and mouthy. Thank you for not breaking Ares seal and making the world safe from War. You are the kind of woman who would be an awesome friend. One of my favorite types of leading ladies.
Dear Eternal Rider Story: You were so action packed, thrilling, and good paced. I was impressed with the mythology tweaking. All of the elements (Guardians, Horseman, Watchers) were fascinating and drew me in immediately. I can’t wait to see where we are going next! Just going to say it (don’t get made) but I feel bad for “R/P”. He didn’t want to be what he is!
Narrated by Hillary Huber / LENGTH 12 hrs and 33 mins
Hillary did a pretty good job! I thought her pacing was excellent and it didn’t take me long to get into the voices at all. The only thing that was a little off-putting was Pest’s voice. It took me forever to get comfortable with it. I switched over to the paper copy at the end but that has nothing to do with the narrations and all about my impatience.
