    ”Pray for the world. War is coming”. NEED.Where is the synopsis? I have no idea what will happen in this book, and I couldn’t be more excited .I took a quiz to know which horsemen I am, and I end up being sometimes War and sometimes Death, so yeah. I really want this one. ”Pray for the world. War is coming”. NEED.Where is the synopsis? I have no idea what will happen in this book, and I couldn’t be more excited 😆.I took a quiz...

    4 for your soft (and safe) heart stars!!! (update to add links of Aubrey and Lex)Henry Cavill as War.FIRST OF ALLNotes for safety gang. For those of you who don't know there's a group of Goodreads romance readers who hate to find things in our reads that ruin our fun. We don't have time to waste with cheating, rapist heroes, and we consider other woman interaction as cheating. It ruins the romance for us. Happy endings are a must for many of us.C...

    How is your book hangover doing?? I'm still thinking about this book....4.5 starsWAR, I’m still speechless and amazed, but incredibly happy, it was EVERYTHING I hoped it would be.War, the second of the Four Horsemen, was deliciously dark, dangerous, swoony in a warlord kind of way, and very much everything I wanted him to be!! Again, it just shows how much I like these kind of heroes. He was all kinds of FINE!! His determination, possessiveness...

    As far as this apocalypse goes, I'm ambivalent. I mean, sure, we all expect to die soonish, but I think we are all expecting it to be the robots who kill us, not the four horsemen. It's more of a modern solution. I mean four horsemen? That's so old-fashioned. Why is this taking so long? I haven't even had one robot offer me cake yet.If you loved the first book, Pestilence, like me, you will like this one too. But, you will also feel like it's not...

    Guys save your money. This was so incredibly racist and islamaphobic I don't even know where to start.I was so pumped for this but I've never been so let down. It's actually kinda laughable that Laura Thalassa thought she could write about the Palestine/Israel conflict with sensitivity. I genuinely don't think that a book mostly about sex was the best platform for it. Does Thalassa not realize that this issue actually affects real lives? It shoul...

    All religions want the same thing—salvation. I can hear my father’s voice like an echo from the past. We’re all the same. Miriam is trying to live in post apocalyptic Jerusalem when the second horseman of the apocalypse War makes his way there. She is terrified, but when she is cornered by War, he spares her life. She is taken back to his camp where he claims she is his wife and she will eventually be his. It’s a slow burn romance bet...

    This is the second book in the Four Horsemen series; and it’s War’s story! Obviously, the story had a lot of violence in it; but like the first book...a unique love grew between War and Miriam. In Pestilence’s book there was a lot more touching moments between him and his woman... whereas War and his “wife” ( he truly believes Miriam was given to him by God to be his wife) were against each other for the majority of the story. Even with...

    Edit October 19Our BR is officially over. This was an amazing reading experience. Thank you for Buddy reading with me. I loved this book.Let's BR famine next year.Goodreads continues its campaign against authors outside the established publishers forgetting that indies and their fans are contributing to its Alexa rating as much, if not more, than the fans of traditionally-published books. They modified this post to erase the links to my BR friend...

    Edit September 29Admittedly, some things here didn't work for me. War is an ex-manwhore while Miriam is barely experienced and I hated that. My 5 stars rating reflects my overall enjoyment of the story, it was hard to put down and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The twists and turns were great and I love the cameos of the other horsemen.However, I had small issues, from the cover, to the constant repetition of the same plot: they fight-they have sex. Bu...

The world has gone mad. “ What a ride!What you have here is: - Formidable and sexy warlord;-Compassionate, resourceful and feisty heroine;-Gory battle scenes filled with living dead;-Philosophical questions about human nature and its possible redemption;-Slow burn ...

    Pestilence: After Pestilence was slain by love, it was time to unleash War on humans. This time, War and his phobos riders start with Jerusalem and work their way across the coast of Egypt. He meets Miriam in Jerusalem (now located in New Palestine, I believe) and recognizes her immediately as his wife. Yep. We're going there.War has an olive skin tone, long dark hair, kohl-lined eyes. He's very muscly, has a red horse named Deimos, and is pretty...

    “Netet wā neterwej.” You are the one He sent me. (...) “Netet tayj ḥemet.” You are my wife.Story After the four horsemen arrived, the world sank into chaos. Miriam lost her whole family, one by one, and never thought she would ever be called “wife”. Especially not by one of the four horseman - war. But when war invades her hometown, he takes Miriam with him. He tells her that god send him her as a present. She resists him, fights h...

    Trying to get my reading mojo back, I finally finished War after enduring a HORRIBLE reading slump for months. I am busy with work and most of the time I'm exhausted to write my full review. Anyways, I enjoyed it. It's action-packed, thrilling and its romance is slow burning good!I'm dying to read this as soon as it's released and our second of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse is War (look at that Jason Momoa lookalike model). His mission is p...

    It’s hard to love WarThis review is a wee bit spoilerish if you haven’t read Pestilence yet. Please proceed with caution.I think the hardest part of reading an EPIC book like War is deciding whether to surrender. You are faced with so many internal dilemmas about choices, sacrifices, deciding whether to have faith and whether there is redemption for those who sin. Can we look at someone like War, and judge him for something he has no power ov...

    5 for your soft heart stars!! Ok, prepare for tons of !!!!! Because this book has me that excited.This book was fantastic! It had action, romance with steamy scenes and zombies!! War is a stubborn, fierce warrior turned swoony romantic, he deserved nothing but a bad ass woman which he got in Miriam. I couldn’t read the ending fast enough...I had tears of sadness that soon turned to tears of happiness! This book left me smiling and looking forwa...

    Loved it!!! This series is so unique! I can’t wait for the next one :D

    I dragged through this one and the love connection was meh to me. However ending was good.
  • Maca
    I don't know where the problem is.Is it the book or is it me? Or both?Okay, apparently it’s me.And this was the most anticipated book of 2019 for me, but of course it went downhill, cause why not? I know The 4 Horsemen of the Apocalypse are not supposed to be "good" and they are not cute puppies, but we still have to root for them in some way, right?So when I started Pestilence I almost immediately like Pestilence (character not book), but when...

    POST READING THOUGHTS AND REVIEW FORM 07/26/19 Buddy read with The QT'shttps://urlzs.com/7NVTXI stayed up on the eve of July 11th until it went live so I downloaded and finished the same day. Fell in love with this book after the first couple of pages. It's quite large book and I read it all in about 12 hours, could not put the thing down. Definitely worth the buy!Just one thing before I post my Buddy read review form. I'll follow the advice of P...

    The horseman reaches out and draws a finger over my collarbone, his gaze never leaving mine. “I saw you, and for the first time, I wanted.” His words pucker my flesh. “And so, I took.” OKAY THAT WAS SO GOOD. it’s nothing less than i expected from laura thalassa. i didn’t love this as much as i loved the first book, because i think Pestilence had that little pinch of otherworldly heartache i didn’t find in this book, but it was st...
  • MeaganCM
    This was my 300th book! Woo woo! I am in love with this series . I don't know how I'm going to make it until the next book comes out The most interesting thing about this series is the internal conflict the female lead faces when falling in love with a horseman. And sometimes I find myself agreeing with the horsemen when it comes to their outlook on humanity. Like am I really siding with the "villain" lol. The opposing viewpoints (the horseman vs...
  • Holly
    This was kind of weird and I didn't particularly like it for several reasons:(spoiler alert!)- Why originally have the setting be Israel/Palestine? That seemed unnecessary and problematic and the author tried to gloss over it by making the heroine come from parents who were Muslim and Jewish, but yeah, that was still a bad choice of location to say the least.- He's War, I get it, but why the zombies?- Miriam swings wildly between hating and lusti...

    3, War: what is it good for? A little bit of a let down stars!Full review along with a recipe for Shakshuka featured on my blog, Recipe & a Read!I feel like I need to start this out by saying that this is a very different type of book than I read these days. Laura Thalassa is the author to one of my favorite *romance* series The Bargainer that I read years ago and adored. After falling in love with that series I picked up and read every other boo...
