BOOK REVIEW: Death (The Four Horsemen) by Laura Thalassa #apocalypse #romance #fantasy #bookreview @LauraThalassa

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.

He’s known by many names: Thanatos. Horseman. God’s last angel. And then, of course, there’s the one I’m all too familiar with—

Death.

The day Death comes to Lazarus Gaumond’s town and kills everyone in one fell swoop, the last thing he expects to see is a woman left alive and standing. But Lazarus has her own extraordinary gift: she cannot be killed—not by humans, not by the elements, not by Death himself.

She is the one soul Death doesn’t recognize. The one soul he cannot pry free from her flesh. Nor can he ignore the unsettling desire he has for her. Take her. He wants to, desperately. And the longer she tries to stop him from his killing spree, the stronger the desire becomes.

When Lazarus crosses paths with the three other horsemen, an unthinkable situation leads to a terrible deal: seduce Death, save the world. A hopeless task, made all the worse by the bad blood between her and Thanatos. But Death’s attraction to her is undeniable, and try though she might, Lazarus cannot stay away from that ancient, beautiful being and his dark embrace.

The end is here. Humankind is set to perish, and not even the horsemen can stop Death from fulfilling his final task.

Only Lazarus can.

MY REVIEW – 5 stars!

I’ve read thousands of books. Only a dozen have ever made me cry. This book ripped me apart, put me back together, then gave me such an emotional ending I cried again. Yes. Death made me cry at least twice, and that’s an unheard of feat when it comes to me and books.

Being a romance, I expect a happily-ever-after, especially for a series finale. What I got with this book was so much more. The incredible journey Lazarus and Death take, the ups and downs, the battles (both physical and emotional), left me feeling raw, hopeful, angry, and oh so many other things. There’s beauty in death, and this book shows that in the most heartbreaking ways. There were times I wanted to scream at Thanatos, and times I wanted to hug him.

The final book in The Four Horsemen series is a rollercoaster ride that was well worth the wait! I’m only sorry the series had to end.
