Interview and Giveaway with Larissa Ione!
It’s a new month so that means we have a new Author of the Month! And who else would we pick other than paranormal romance author, Larissa Ione! You may have heard of her delicious demons in her Demonica series, but Ione has a new spin-off series called the Lords of Deliverance. Her latest book, Immortal Rider features Limos and Arik, a character you may know from the Demonica series. UTC got the chance to chat with Larissa Ione on her newest release, so without further ado….
Well, I think what sets the Lords of Deliverance books apart from the rest of the genre is the fact that it’s about the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. Yes, there are vampires, werewolves, angels, and demons in the books, but the main characters are Biblical legends who haven’t played major hero roles in romance novels (as far as I know, anyway.) As for what sets it apart from the Demonica series…that’s a difficult question since the two series are so intertwined, and as the Horsemen books progress, the Demonica characters become even more involved in the apocalyptic arc. But I guess I’d say that the LOD books are a little darker, and they delve deeper into the supernatural world.
Thank you! Actually, I’d love to write science fiction — a Star Trek novel, specifically.
Hmm…I think readers like Reaver because he’s a powerful authority figure, but also because he’s got a mysterious past that even he doesn’t understand. More of this comes out in the Lords of Deliverance books, which will kick off his own book I’m hoping to see released in early 2013.
My crazy imagination! 🙂
Well, we’re still working on that. We’re planning some novellas, but we don’t know if they’ll be self-published or will be released through a publisher yet. We’re very excited about them, though!
Unfortunately, not much. But you’ll learn all about them in Lethal Rider, which is Thanatos’s book, set to release next summer.
Vampire! A vigilante vampire. I’d spend my nights hunting scumbags. Fun!
Do you mean, which Horseman? I think Pestilence/Reseph. I’m currently working on his book right now, and he’s a blast to write.
Ooh, tough one. They both have their draws…and drawbacks. I’d say Supernatural edges out True Blood, but not by much. Definitely prefer Eric, though! Mmm….
Everyone at UG loves a good par-tay! There’d be champagne fountains, blood punch, plenty of, er, raw appetizers, and the invitations would be sent via a real life elf — but probably not the kind Santa uses. Elves in the Demonica world are less happy. The Horsemen would definitely be invited, which, by default, would mean that a hellhound or two would show up. As for what would happen? Drinking, eating, dancing, and, of course, lots and lots of sex!
Thanks so much for having me, and happy holidays to everyone!!!!

Wow this is a new to me author. thank you!
I’ve read Sin Undone so far because that’s the only one local bookstores had here I plan on getting and reading the rest of the Demonica series and The Lords of Deliverance series from Amazon. I really enjoyed Sin’s book!!!
Great interview! I enjoyed both series and I can’t wait for Reseph’s book.
Can’t wait to read Immortal Rider. Great interview. Thanks for the giveaway.
Eek, more mentions of how fabulous Larissa is. I guess she gets boosted up more on the TBR pile too… got to start reading her books!!
Great interview ladies, you always ask such great questions.
Great Interview! I can’t wait to read more from Larissa Ione! Thank you!
oh i cannot wait. I’ve read all the demonica series and just love the intricacies and twists on fun myth and demonology. I already have my regular copy and it’s on the top of my TBR pile! thanks for the giveaway and another great interview!
Larissa has some of the best characters going and is one of my “Stalker go to’s”. She always manages to make me laugh and has at least one major surprise in each book. I watch for everything she writes, even if it’s an add on Craig’s List.
Awesome Interview, Larissa I absolutely love you and was so glad I got to meet you at AAD. I have been waiting for this book to come out and I can hardly wait to get my hands on it. Would love to win it – LOL
No matter what you write I know it will be awesome. Your writing is alwasy smoothe sailing and enjoyable.
Larissa is one of my favorite PNR authors! I think it’s awesome how she chooses some very controversial topics and make it so easy to read about them. I also love how she doesn’t let criticism undermine her work. To me, she’s one of the few who can make demons and wargs sound sexy! I wish her all the best!
Thanks for the interview ladies! Very exciting!!
This is such a good series. I would love to win. Anxiously awaiting Immortal Rider.
I always knew you were a girl after my own heart Larissa! A vigilante vampire it is!!! Thank you for taking the time to share with us today and for the awesome giveaway opportunity.
thanks for the interview. i love larissa’s books. i really want to read than’s story. read immortal rider and it left him in a cliffhanger!
I just finished with this book and it was amazing. The places she has taken her characters is deep and complex. I will be first in line for Reaver book.
You were my second paranormal author and I’ve enjoyed every one of your works. I’m dying to see how you redeem Pest :). Thank you.
Thanks for the giveaway.
I have not read the Demonica series yet so I need to get on the stick.
I love how she’s got her books all planned out for two years and I still find its incredible that she’s part of a bestselling writing team.

The Demonica series is one of my all-time favorites, and Lords of Deliverance is on its way..anxioulsy waiting for the Immortal Rider audio book, I’ve heard nothing but great things about it..like there would be any doubt!!
This is so exciting 🙂 I recently discovered I could actually have “applications” on my google chrome and I discovered this Feedly one where it basically gives the RSS code to all the blogs I follow so I can see new posts in a quick glance 🙂 OF course I saw this one down the list and I HAD to click because I adore Larissa’s books 😛 Though I’d take Eric from True Blood over Dean, even though he’s delicious too 😉 I’m still learning how to spice up my own blog LOL but eventually I’d love to have one as nice as yours looks. Thanks for doing an interview with one of my FAV paranormal authors 🙂 I always love reading these, so its much appreciated! :)one of my favorite parts.. I just finished reading Limos story and I was thinking well hmm when is Thanatos/Regan’s story out? And what about Reseph? Does he get a “save” so to speak? And of course my other question was what about Reaver! I really want to read all three 😀 So exciting 🙂
