Guest Post & Giveaway Larissa Ione


The Horsemen cometh...Pause for a PJV freakout...guess who is stopping by the blog today for Paranormal Spring break? Non other than one of the Queens in the Paranormal Romance genre. Well not that kind of Queen...but you know, like Queen, ruler, leader, rocking sauce of awesomeness type of author...

Ok, put your hands together for Ms. Larissa Ione here to introduce her hot new series...
Author: Larissa Ione

Hi everyone!

First, I want to thank the Parajunkee's View site for having me. I'm thrilled to be here!

Rachel asked me to stop by and talk about something, and, well, since I've got a new book out April 1st (Eternal Rider), I figured I'd talk about it.  But you know, I usually talk about the hero and heroine. Or the plot. Or the setting. I want to do something different, so I'm going to talk about some of the supporting characters...who happen to be horses. *grins*

Yep, this new series, which is a spinoff of the Demonica series, is about the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, so naturally, the Horsemen have horses, and these stallions are all individuals with their own personalities, just like their owners.

In Eternal Rider, our hero is Ares, who will be War if his Seal breaks, unleashing evil upon the world. His horse, a blood bay warhorse named Battle, is a grumpy thing, but he has a sense of humor. Sure, it's a sick and twisted sense of humor, but he has one. And he likes sugar cubes.

Limos, the only female Horseman, and the one who will be Famine upon the breaking of her Seal, has a unique mount -- her horse is a jet=black hell stallion with a nasty temper and a nearly uncontrollable nature. Oh, and he's a carnivore. Bones is not a nice horse. You'll see more of him in Immortal Rider (December 2011).

And then there's Styx, the dun beast belonging to Thanatos, who gets to be the infamous Death when his Seal breaks. Styx is quiet, watchful, and when you aren't looking, he's protective of those who can't protect themselves. He's such a cutie-pie!

Reseph, whose Seal has broken, has a white horse, who, before he became evil upon his master's Seal breaking, was a pretty happy guy. He was playful, like his master, and he loved to nip people and run. Of all the horses, he was freed the most often (the horses exist as glyphs on the Horsemen's skin when not in physical form.) *sniffs* I miss poor Conquest...

So there we have it. The Four Horses of the Apocalypse. Thanks again, Parajunkees, and to all you readers out there, remember...save a horse, ride a Horseman! :)

My horse would be called Medea. A mare of course. Stubborn, fearless and fiesty. A horse not to be messed with.

Congratulations on the new series!

A paint named Apache. A neighbor of mine has several horses & her paint is the most beautiful creature I have ever seen.

Victoria said...

LSUReader said...

I want a large brown thoroughbred with a black mane and hooves. He would be normal--except for being able to fly, of course. He'd be fiercely protective of me and mine, but friendly to us. I think I’ll name him Patton, after my favorite WWII general.

Thanks for the giveaway. (Email in profile.)

I'm a woman who's never had a horse phase. I've gone riding a couple of times and do not see the appeal of horses.

Congratulations on the new book/series!

BLHmistress said...

Oh I so can't wait to read this book , I'm not entering because I have the book just stopping by to comment- Larissa is one of my fave authors' I absolutely love the Demonica series and can't wait to read her new series.

Amanda from Novel Addiction said...

I'm so excited to read this book! It feels like I've been waiting for it forever. ;)

As for my horse.. I know it would be thoroughbred. That's what I used to ride, and I loved being atop that much power. All the strength and speed, it was exhilarating. And for a name? That's a tough one. I don't know! Maybe Julius. That seems like a good, strong name.

Thanks!

I would name my horse Nightmare and he would be a black Arabian. They are small horses but they are swift and stunning to look at.

Denise said...

Thanks for the chance to win the giveaway. My horse's name would be Patsy. She is the meanest ugliest horse around. Of course she is only mean to those to laugh or try to trick her thinking she is really a patsy. She will help her rider see the true character of those around her and fight for those that cannot defend themselves.

I have to admit, I've never really thought about owning a horse before, although I did think it would be cute to have one of those miniature ponies as a pet. For some reason, I think I'd name it Trixie.

Ok, I know I entered this contest over the weekend. I don't know why my posts keep disappearing (and not just on this site). Anywho, I love the song Horse With No Name so I would probably pick something out of that song. You know like Desert or Rain. I'm actually no too familiar with types of horses but my daughter LOVES Apaloossa so that would probably be what I would pick.

Leagh said...

I would name my horse Mayhem and he would be a big beautiful all black Arabian horse :)
