Pestilence by Laura Thalassa book review
4 Stars worthy of a re-read


The 4 horsemen came to earth with the power to end it all, and they began. Pestilence, War, Famine, and Death.

When Pestilence comes to your town, you better be ready because everyone around you (including yourself) is marked for dead. For Sara Burns, a young female firefighter in town, that includes her wonderful parents and her friends. When drawing straws to stay behind and try to stop him leaves her on the road waiting to cut him off, she decides that she has to do this to save her family and the world. One death is better than millions, right? After all, Pestilence brings with him a horrible incurable plague, and if she can prevent the death of the world by plague, then she will.

Only, no one told her Pestilence can’t be killed, and she finds herself as his prisoner along for the ride to end the world. While handsome as hell, Pestilence can be just a cruel, and makes it his goal to torment Sara as his prisoner since she so kindly attempted to kill him.

The longer they travel together, the more romance begins to blossom…. how can Sara save the world when she is falling for the one trying to end it?

Great start to the series, I really enjoyed it! underneath it all, Pestilence is more human from the get go than he thinks. Sara just brings the rest of it out of him.

I liked the world scenario in this book, it is a really good apocalypse world. The way the world operates now, the descriptions of what stopped working and how life is ever since the 4 horsemen arrived is really interesting to me.

The real/raw human scenes between Sara and Pestilence were my favorite parts of the book – watching his humanity come to light and his love for Sara bloom. The more time Pestilence spends around Sara, the more he cannot deny his humanity.

I also enjoyed the extent of Pestilence’s power to spread plague. The way it worked was unique to this story and how it can change based on what he decides was a great angle and shows how much he is giving humanity a solid chance at changing. I did end up sympathizing with him and his situation, he didn’t really want to kill everyone and he didn’t like watching them die, but he believed his duty was his only choice.

Overall Pestilence by Laura Thalassa was a very enjoyable read, and good start to the series.

Worthy of a re-read.
