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. When Pestilence comes for Sara Burn’s town, one thing is certain: everyone she knows and loves is marked for death. Unless, of course, the angelic-looking horseman is stopped, which is exactly what Sara has in mind when she shoots the unholy beast off his steed. Too bad no one told her Pestilence can’t be killed. Now the horseman, very much alive and very pissed off, has taken her prisoner, and he’s eager to make her suffer. Only, the longer she’s with him, the more uncertain she is about his true feelings towards her … and hers towards him. And now, well, Sara might still be able to save the world, but in order to do so, she'll have to sacrifice her heart in the process.

A new series Laura has just started. And started very well. I was
engrossed in this book (take no notice of the cover picture it’s widely
exaggerated).

So it seems that humans have been judged as unworthy and 5 years
before the 4 horsemen awoke and rode across the lands.
Civilisation largely fell and the normal trappings dissolved.
Humans living in the post-apocalyptic world now have irregular
electricity and farming has finished. There is disease and poverty.
But the horsemen rode and then disappeared.
Now Pestilence is back and riding across the land spreading the
Messianic plague and everyone who catches it dies. But humans fight
back and try to kill Pestilence.
And this is the story of one such young woman who tries, and fails, to kill him. And their later adventures.

I was engrossed in this tale and even cried when I read about the
children dying of the plague  – OK I was feeling very emotional that day – but found it well written and the characters believable in that setting.

Hope that ‘War’ – the next in the series is as good – and as long.
