Pestilence (Four Horsemen #1)

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.




Book Breakdown 

Favorite Quote 
“Getting angry at one of the horsemen of the apocalypse for bringing about the end of man is like getting angry at ice for being cold.”

I will freely admit, I did not expect to love this book as much as I did. Sara's voice just pulled me in and didn't let me go. She's snarky but not to the point of being rude. She really made this book for me. She was just so strong, kind, and unapologetically herself. 

Pestilence is not really as awesome as Sara. I've read lots of reviews where everyone has fallen head over hills for him. Not me, he's fine, don't get me wrong but he's just my cup of tea at all! 

Now the story itself is something I've never come across before and I love it! It's mostly pretty dark, in the beginning is the worst to me but with all the death, gore, and how Sara is treated at first makes this book not for everyone but if you can handle the content, you're going to love this book! 

You'll find yourself wishing they'd just get together already. It's really a good enemies to lovers slow burn done in a way I've never seen before.

Fully recommend!

    1. It's original at least as I've never ran into another book with this premise.
