Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event originally created and hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we are all eagerly anticipating. Jill has been MIA since August of 2016. Despite this, the meme lives on….Hope you come back Jill! Until then I will be joining Tressa at Wishful Endings and her meme Can’t-Wait Wednesday.
Happy Wednesday y’all! This week I’m desperately waiting on War by Laura Thalassa, the second book in The Four Horsemen series. I’ll be honest when I first picked up Pestilence I was hesitant. It was the first time ever that reading a book by Thalassa had me questioning my choices. I really didn’t know if she could pull off making me fall for guy who is literally named for disease. Well, I was wrong to question her. From now on, if Laura Thalassa wrote it, I’ll read it. No questions asked 😉 If she could make me love disease, I’m pretty sure she’ll get me to love War too.
Please note that as of drafting this post there is no definite release date. The author has said on her Facebook page that the book is coming late April or May. Follow the book on Goodreads for buy links once available 😉
Series: The Four Horsemen #2
Published by Lavabrook Publishing Group on 2019-05
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.
The day Jerusalem falls, Miriam Elmahdy knows her life is over. Houses are burning, the streets run red with blood, and a traitorous army is massacring every last resident. There is no surviving this, especially not once Miriam catches the eye of War himself. But when the massive and terrifying horseman corners Miriam, he calls her his wife, and instead of killing her, he takes her back to his camp.
Now Miriam faces a terrifying future, one where she watches her world burn town by town, and the one man responsible for it all is her seemingly indestructible “husband”. But there’s another side to him, one that’s gentle and loving and dead set on winning her over, and she might not be strong enough to resist.
However, if there’s one thing Miriam has learned, it’s that love and war cannot coexist. And so she must make the ultimate choice: surrender to War and watch humankind fall, or sacrifice everything and stop him.
