Pestilence (The Four Horsemen, #1) by Laura Thalassa

Pestilence (The 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 ...

    Katerina's Guide to Surviving the Apocalypse(or Pestilence and All His Friends)➸ DO not, I repeat do not, let mind-blowingly beautiful covers seduce you. This is the first step towards your doom.➸ IF you were weak like me and gave in to the temptress called Cover, you must be prepared to shut your moral compass. That is necessary if you do not wish to spend your entire reading experience hearing the voices in your head screaming

    Update 6Guys! Don't get so worked out! It's just a book! A good book, too.It's fiction people.How is the cover deceiving? A horseman of the apocalypse falls in love with hot chick. I mean that's not love-dovey romance, or post-apocalyptic adventure: it's dark romance. Anyone can see that just by looking at the cover.So Pestilence kills people?Duh!Update 5"I came to conquer this land and its people, but instead, one of its people conquered me."4.5...

    FUCKING BRAVO.Okay, so here's the thing, I can't remember the last time I enjoyed a book like this. You know, one where there's a borderline Stockholm Syndrome relationship going on. Because feminist rage.This author pulled it off for me, though, and I'm so frigging happy she did, because sometimes I just want to tune out and enjoy a love story that's dark and twisted and oh so wrong that it's right.However, I can definitely see other readers hav...

    “Because naming things humanizes them. And once you humanize something, you are essentially recognizing it’s existence.” Story ⭐⭐⭐⭐Four years ago four horseman landed on earth. With their arrival humans thought the end of the world was there. But they were so wrong. The horseman disappeared as fast as they appeared on earth. Only four years later only one of them appears again - Pestilence the conqueror of the world. Spreading a pl...

    Things I have never expected to say:1. I think I'll pass on dessert.2. This is my natural hair color.3. You girls go get drunk and wild in Vegas without me.4. I love Pestilence and I can't wait for War!Okay, so I have still never said the first three, but number 4 is very true. Pestilence is my new book boyfriend. And, good news, HE is actually robbing the cradle, instead of me being a cougar this time. I think I read Paranormal just to get book ...

    "Then I saw when the Lamb broke one of the seven seals, and I heard one of the four living creatures saying as with a voice of thunder, “Come.” I looked, and behold, a white horse, and he who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer". IM SO HAPPY I FOUND OUT ABOUT THIS BOOK!This is the first book that I have read about the Four Horsemen. And damn if it wasn't good.This book is a great combin...

    AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH ALL THE STARS! In a totally random and weird review, I will be using gifs from the movie Elf to express ALL THE FEELINGS!So me about Laura Thalassa all the time:Which will probably lead to this:Anyways... from the moment I saw the cover reveal for Pestilence, I was DYING (get it?) to get my grubby hands on a copy of this book. I preordered and everything, which I rarely ever do. Then once it hi...

    5 starsThis book is now on my favourites shelf.I will definitely be reading it again.And the general consensus from our buddy read (BR):It was a total roller-coaster.(There were some moments where it seemed to damn near fly off the tracks just to keep us screaming and hanging on for dear life...)And even though this tale was filled with darkness, devastation, suffering, violence, heartbreak and despair? While it also explored some of the deeper q...

    ⭐4 stars⭐ Caught him in a good mood, I did.Not."So... I haven't gotten sick.""Astute observation, mortal.""Is that just luck, or do you control who gets the plague?" I ask."Were you born with all your organs intact?" he responds."Yes..." I say cautiously. "Good," he responds, "then I expect you to use the one beneath your skull." Pestilence is such a sweetheart I swear! A mass murdering sweetheart but sweetheart anyway.Whoever disagrees can c...

    That cover!

    Worldbuilding - 2 STARSPestilence is a romance set in dystopian world but in its core this is not a dystopian novel. This should serve as a warning for all of you hardcore dystopian/fantasy/paranormal lovers who (like me) expect actual worldbuilding when presented with new world/creatures - there is almost none worldbuilding in this book.Plot line - 1 STARWorldbuilding aside, this novel also lacks plot. Literally, there wasn't happening anything ...

    5 INFERNAL STARS! (This is out in the world now! Go read it!)Hello. Let me introduce you to my newest OTP. "And so it was, and so it shall be, for the Age of Man is over, and the Age of the Horseman has begun. They came to earth, and they came to end us all." Sweet baby Jesus this was everything I needed, hoped it would be and more. Laura Thalassa sprung this one on us last minute and she has done it again. Nobody quite does enemies-to-lovers sto...
  • Melissa (Ever So Mela)
    YES! YES, YES, YEESSSSS!!!If paranormal romance was more like Pestilence, I would actually give them a chance.This exceeded expectations. Though, I do have to be honest, they were very low to begin with. I mean, all I expected was some strong alpha douchebag to conquer some supposedly "strong and ballsy" female and then make her succumb to his whims in the name of lurve. But that wasn't necessarily what happened. I mean, yes and no. But more no t...

    I read this in a day and couldn’t put it down. Reminded me of Angelfall slightly but was still original. Probably one of my new favourites!

    4.5 -omg Jewelsy actually loved this and is baffled by that, so is actually taking the time to write a longer review than normal- StarsDisclaimer: most people know that paranormal or fantasy or dystopian stories don’t really pump my nads at all. Too much world building, other-world jargon and overly informational dialogue tends to put me into a coma before I can even get to the romance and swoons.BUT even I was surprised by how awesome and easy...
  • Alaina Meserole
    HOLY EFFING SHIT!It's definitely about time that I wrote this amazing review! I finally got to my BR comments because life and work have been draining me. Today, I probably had the worst day at work ever.. then had to sit in traffic for like ever, then I had to watch my sister drive off with my car and she probably has like the worst driving record in my family. I'm shook. I'm hurt. I needed a lot of wine to cope with today. I need some books to ...
  • Cbackson
    This book is an interesting exploration of how much downright evil romance readers will accept from a hero before deciding that he's unredeemable. Based on the other reviews for this book, the answer is "a lot, especially if the cover is pretty." The plot summary amply covers what's going on here, but in case you're wondering: this book is exactly what it says on the label. The hero is a harbinger of the end of days. He infects people with a horr...

    3.5*This book was recommended by a friend who loved it, several other friends have read it and all loved it. It has a nice cover and a great blurb, okay so the title doesn’t scream romance but once you’ve read the blurb it’s good.My problem was much to my surprise I found I liked this but I didn’t love it like I’d expected.I have to say with all the great reviews it’s almost certainly me, I am a picky reader and there’s a lot here t...

    Enemies to lovers romance by Laura Thalassa I don’t think I even need to say more 🤗🤗
  • Carvanz
    Oh man, oh man, oh man!!! This is the MOST amazing book! I loved every freaking moment of it. A story about the apocalypse is not one you would usually consider to be romantic. However, when you put a strong, determined woman into the path of Pestilence, one of the four horsemen, and mix in just the right amount of humor, kindness and mercy, you couldn’t be more wrong.I loved Sara and all her quirky one liners. Her internal monologue had me smi...
  • Ezgi Tülü
    Sessizce bir yıldız verip köşeme çekilmek vardı tabii ama... şu rezilliğe bakar mısınız ya?Kitabın ilk çeyreği şundan ibaret: "Why am I here?" I ask."I won't let you die."Again, I don't know whether him saving me is a kindness or a curse.It's obviously a curse, you dumb bimbo. He ain't saving you to romance your ass.Someone saw me topless. My eyes slide to Pestilence, who's staring at me passively. It was probably him, which means ...
