Reaver by Larissa Ione


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...
As a devoted fan of any of Larissa Ione’s series, and especially the Demonica series, I have been waiting for Reaver’s story for a looooong time.  And boy, did we ever get it.  Full of twists and turns and a few things that I know I never saw coming, it did not disappoint.
Finally, finally, we are getting the whole story of Reaver and Harvester with this book.  In the beginning, Harvester is taken by Satan to his domain to be tortured as a traitor.  Reaver goes to save her, and end up stuck in hell together.  So, they must not only work together, but hash out their tumultuous past.  Whoa.  And there’s sex…hot, hot sex.
I have always been intrigued by Reaver’s character, even from his days as the grumpy resident Angel at Underworld General, I knew there was way more to him, and I was right.  This book was both heartbreaking and full of information for all you die-hard Demonica fans out there.  Plus, Harvester’s character was a surprise to me.  I didn’t want to like her, but I ended up really, really liking her and liking her and Reaver together. Harvester was interesting to me because she was an Angel, but chose to fall so that she could be a spy for heaven.  So, no matter her dirty deeds, she did help to thwart an apocalypse.  The one thing I didn’t realize was how much of a deep and rich history that Reaver and Harvester had together.  It was heartbreaking and intense.  It’s a hell of a ride!
Larissa Ione never disappoints in her writing for me.  She manages to make it enthralling and sexy; she also manages to give her characters depth.  These aren’t just sexy smutty time books; these are books with a very complete and deep world building that really rises to the top of this genre.
Overall, I enjoyed this book immensely.  I am so glad there will be more to this series, and I was blown away by Reaver and Harvester’s story.  You will enjoy this…and if you haven’t read this series, you better get on it, because it’s one of the best!
