They came to earth, and they came to end us all.
5 years ago four Horsemen of Apocalypse rode all over the world and in their wake all of the machines stopped working, leaving people in chaos. Now, Pestilence is back to spread a deadly plague. On his path is a hometown of Sara Burns. A girl who decided not to run. Instead, she goes on a suicide mission to try to save the world. There is just one problem. Not everything goes according to her plan.
Laura Thalassa’s writing style is everything I need to get out of a reading slump. It’s very natural, but it’s witty and funny. I actually laughed out loud a couple of times while reading this book, which doesn’t happen very often.
The characters are not particularly deep or complex. But they don’t really have to be. This story doesn’t need it. I like their chemistry and I enjoyed their banter.
Still, you have to be a little bit lenient if you want to truly enjoy this book. I mean, it’s a romance between Pestilence (yeah, actual Pestilence – as in plague – a THING that was around since forever) and a girl in her twenties. It’s not really something you should take seriously. It’s a lot of fun though.
To be completely honest there isn’t a lot of plot. It’s pure romance. If you are expecting something else, I am sorry to disappoint you.
And yes, I enjoyed the romance in this book, but to do so I really had to force myself not to think too hard about the story. Because while they were riding on their horse and sleeping in stranger’s homes and falling in love… all this time people all around them were dying. Dying a horrible and painful death. Everyone. Men and women. Old and young. It was kind of… ruining the mood.
If you are looking for something fun, quick, light and silly – here is a perfect book for you.
