Pestilence by Laura Thalassa

Pestilence (Four Horsemen, #1)

by Laura Thalassa

They came to earth—Pestilence, War, Famine, Death—four horsemen riding their screaming steeds, racing to the corners of the world. Four horsemen with the power to destroy all of humanity. They came to earth, and they came to end us all.

When Pestilence comes for Sara Burn’s town, one thing is certain: everyone she knows and loves is marked for death. Unless, of course, the angelic-looking horseman is stopped, which is exactly what Sara has in mind when she shoots the unholy beast off his steed.

Too bad no one told her Pestilence can’t be killed.

Now the horseman, very much alive and very pissed off, has taken her prisoner, and he’s eager to make her suffer. Only, the longer she’s with him, the more uncertain she is about his true feelings towards her … and hers towards him.

And now, well, Sara might still be able to save the world, but in order to do so, she'll have to sacrifice her heart in the process.

2 of 5 stars

After much deliberation, I did move from 3 to 2 stars. The book was ok, however the theme of the quartet kept me invested. I just don't like Pestilence the character. He's actions are questionable at most. How are you going to say that you think you might have feelings for someone then drag them behind your horse then feel bad about that????? Huh??? excuse me my guy. And then homegirl still likes him after that?? That's a fucking deal breaker to me, pal. Then honestly, how dare you let that old couple die? I just couldn't get invested in Pestilence and that wrecked the book for me. I will say don't give up on the series though! The next book is better!
