They came to earth, and they came to end us all. The day Jerusalem falls, Miriam Elmahdy knows her life is over. Houses are burning, the streets run red with blood, and a traitorous army...

    2 minutes ago I finished "Pestilence" and I need this book NOW!!

    It was SOOO worth the wait!❤ Awesome book!!!!!❤

    Have to say, after waiting so long for the book, I was in love with it even before I started it😊

    And now begins the wait for Famine😭

    What a ride!

    What a ride!

     

    First of all I have waited a looong time for this book but it was so worth it!

    I adored Pestilence and could not wait for his brother War to have his story.

    If pestilence was angelic in his appearance with long blond hair and blue eyes War made me think of Khal Drogo with long dark hair, savage dark eyes rimmed with khol and a huge body heavily muscled! And don’t forget his blood red steed!

    Pestilence in the beginning of the story was really puzzled by some human habits. He had a kind of innocence and naivety to himself.

    But War is the only horseman who has lived into the human’s hearts. He knew men's hearts intimately and judged them.

    For as much as Pestilence was a loner, traveling alone to bring illness on men War traveled with an entourage. Phobos warriors as his close guard and men, women, children who had lost everyone to war yet swore their allegiance and helped him annihilate the human race.

     

     

    When she meets War she has lost all her loved ones and has had to learn to live alone in Jerusalem since she was a teenager.

    In that apocalyptic era forget all modern amenities like electricity, cars, running water etc.

    Can you imagine as a teenager living all by yourself in a country who has always known violence?

    It would take tremendous moral strength yet that's what Miriam did. She was resourceful and used her mother's historical manuals to design weapons. Arrows made of wood and heads made of old glass or plastic.

    She survived for so long thanks to some simple rules she followed religiously.

    Don't agree then get beheaded. Brutal, bloody and savage!

    Miriam will refuse to surrender and choses death but War will spare her as she is destined for him. She will be his wife.

    Needless to say that Miriam absolutely denies being the wife of such brutal and blood thirsty man. Because where there is war there can’t be love.

    . The dude did not seem to be easily manipulated and he was dead set on succeeding contrary to his brother Pestilence!

    I was gleeful when I saw both butting heads. Both stubborn. The human versus the formidable warlord.

    She is working against War but he is so determined to care for her, to concede to her “tender heart” that Miriam had a hard time resisting this other side of War.

     

    I have just two words for you: read it!

    I can’t wait to read Famine’s story!!!

    Have you read pestilence?

    Thanks for reading!

    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 as good, and you will think it's a bit too long a

    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 as good, and you will think it's a bit too long and maybe a tad slow in the middle. Then, you will want some cake. Probably chocolate. Served by a robot.

    So, one of the best things about Pestilence was that he was so very inhuman. He was learning to human from Sara. But War has been human for a while before he meets Miriam in this book. He's been humaning all over the place. Maybe a little too much since he has been like a fucking machine. Not machine like a robot - I've already established that. A literal fucking-machine. He's been all about killing people and fucking bitches... and everyone is already dead around him...

    So, yeah. Not as innocent and other-worldly as Pestilence was.

    But, their main missions were the same: kill all humans. They just had different techniques when it came to accomplishing the same goal.

    As long as they are enjoying their work - that's all that really matters.

    War meets Miriam and decides she's his wife. He takes her back to his war camp, but doesn't rape her. He waits for her consent, even though he believes she was sent by God to be his wife. And, I really gotta wonder... if the fucking God of War can understand the concept of consent, what the hell is wrong with Chad at the frat house? Passing out in your bed from drinking too much at the party is NOT consent Chad!

    This is so wrong. That is obviously

    a Pringles can. Not long enough. Jilly knows a Pringles can when she sees one.

    So, this book is basically Miriam living and traveling in a war camp with occasional outings to massacre the next city. She gets to know War and, for some reason, falls for him. Stockholm Syndrome at its finest. It's pretty much equal to finding the biggest, baddest guy in prison and becoming his bitch because he will protect you from the others. Sure, you are getting ass-raped, but he's also pretty sweet when he forces other inmates to give you their puddings during dinner or he'll shank them. If that's not love, I don't know what is.

    Bring on Famine!!

  • Sabrina

    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.

    How is your book hangover doing?? I'm still thinking about this book....

    WAR, 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, protectiveness and later on struggle made a beautiful man. And I’m going to come out, and say that I LOVED War even more than Pestilence. There I said it!!

    War had such tender sides, which were the stark opposite to his ruthless pursuit of his duties. I loved how easy it was for him to accept Miriam for what she was, his wife, with a stubborn streak, there to make his life challenging.

    I was also impressed by Miriam, she was incredibly strong, but also as I mentioned above quite stubborn. Brave, but lonely, and hardened by war, she was no damsel in distress. Used to surviving on her own wits she was surprisingly resilient when it came to War and his duties. She fought for a different outcome, even after multiple setbacks, she never gave up. And sooner or later her soft heart chafed on War in wondrous ways. My favorite part of the story.

    Both War and Miriam were lonely people. Finding another person that would care about their well-being was foreign to both of them. And although Miriam was forced to be close to War, she didn’t succumb to his ‘charms’ immediately. The change came over time. Because even though War was never overbearing, he also was who he was – ‘nothing’ would change that – inhuman, a warlord, and fixed on his duty as one of the Four Horsemen – he was there to destroy mankind.

    There were parts of this book that left me raw, drained, and heartbroken. It’s always an eye opening experience to see the Four Horsemen in their elements. I sometimes forget what they are – which is inhuman. They came to earth to do a job. And that’s what they’ll do.

    One of the things I loved the most about this book was that WAR was located on a different continent. It was perfect for the story, and delivered a fascinating background story. And now, I can see how the cover fit the story beautifully – kudos to the cover designer.

    As I said before, war on itself is never a topic that induces hearts and rainbows. Following a horseman on his reign of terror is nothing to laugh at. Because of it my heart was full but also heavy, but I wouldn’t have wanted it any differently. Can’t wait for Famine’s book.

    but I CAN'T WAIT

    ORIGINAL

    It rarely happens but You can tell when I'm

    .

    UPDATE. I JUST FOUND OUT. THE STUPID THIEF IS A WOMAN!! I HATE HER

    UPDATE MARCH 04

    *looks at her old Pestilence cover*

    * looks at War Cover*

    Can you tell why I'm so angry? Literally I cried out of rage. This is bad. Really bad.

    Ember in the ashes bad.

    It's not Thalassa sensei's fault, but allow me to rage.

    MY COVERS WON'T MATCH!!

    ALL BECAUSE A STUPID THIEF!! DIDN'T THEY THINK SOMEBODY WOULD NOTICE THE ART WAS STOLEN? HOW STUPID CAN ANYONE BE?

    To the

    plagiarist who stole from us the original cover I'm SORT OF a witch and I'm sending you bad vibes. What comes around goes around. You stole not only from original artist, you also deprived innocent, AMYzing girls from their beloved covers. Next time something bad happens to you you'll know it was ALL the people sending you bad vibes.

    To all the Q-Ts, my amazing BR group. I was ready to start a War Buddy Read with all of you guys but I don't feel like starting a BR for

    cover. It's not an ugly cover but it's not what I would've expected after the Pestilence's old cover stylistic approach. My apologies QT's. NO BR for us this time. Don't take me wrong, I'll read on release day, but I'm not organizing nor joining BR's because that stupid thief ruined it for me. I'm seriously pissed off.

    GUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS can you please help me send bad karma to the plagiarist? He deserves the worst for ruining my fun. I'm fed up with abs in covers!!!! This isn't erotica, you people!!!Thalassa sensei never used shirtless dudes in her covers before THE STUPID PLAGIARIST HAPPENED.

    *roars like a lion*

    *swears like a sailor*

    *gets her butt kicked out of Starbucks*

    So let's gather our spiritual forces, our powerful ki's and send them the worst, most hurtful vibes until the thief pays the copyright for the stolen artwork. With whatever he/she loves the most...or worse.

    I've received a lot of questions about War's release date! Originally I was hoping for a May 2019 release, but edits have been taking longer than anticipated, so War will most likely release sometime in June 2019. I know this news blows for those of you who've been waiting on news about War's release. I promise I'm working hard to get this baby polished up, and honestly, I'm enjoying the sh*t out of the book while I do so. (Normally edits make me regret all my life choices, hehe!) On the positive side, the book right now is over 130,000 words, which is more than twice the length of some of my other books (which is partially why it's taking me so dang long to finish--it's much longer than anticipated). Nonetheless, I hope you can bear out these last few weeks with me! So, so, SO excited to share this one with you all!
