Read This: Famine by Laura Thalassa
It’s the end of the world as we know it, and
I feel the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse are fine. And by “fine”, I mean, you know, fine.
Famine is the third book in indie author Laura Thalassa’s The Four Horsemen series. I’ve been gushing about this apocalyptic romance series for years (check out my reviews of Book 1 and Book 2). Each book features a different horseman (Pestilence, War, and now Famine), who is dutifully carrying out his divine task of wiping out mankind. The heroine loathes him, obviously, but invariably notices how very, very pretty he is. Sexy chaos, and the fight for the future of humanity, ensues.
It’s basically enemies to lovers, but where the stakes are really, really high. But fear not, each horseman harbors secret emotional vulnerabilities and a weakness for bold, irreverent women. At the end of the day they are just one identity crisis away from being normal dudes.
Famine, the Third Horseman of the Hot-pocalypse
In his short time on earth, Famine has acquired intimate, personal knowledge of how horrible humans can be. He’s not just fulfilling a divine destiny anymore-he’s after vengeance. When a mortal woman shows him a moment of kindness, he finds himself inexplicably drawn to her. But is it enough to turn him away from his deadly purpose?
I am hunger, I am pain, and no thinly veiled attempts to stop me will work.
When the Brazilian village of Laguna learns that the dreaded third Horseman is headed their way, they gather tribute in the hopes that Famine will spare them. For Ana da Silva, a young prostitute, there’s only one thing she can offer-herself. Yes, she’s that confident in her blowjob skills, but she also has a secret: she and Famine have met before. Bigger secret? She’s going to kill him.
And if that doesn’t work (Horsemen have a nasty habit of not staying dead), she’ll explore more…carnal options.
A blowjob to end all bloodshed-that sounds appropriately valiant.
What I love about these books is the improbable journey they take you on. You literally want to stab the Horsemen when you first meet them, Famine included, but by the end you’re swooning and cheering for their happily ever after. I honestly don’t know how the author does it. Black magic, probably.
