War (The Four Horsemen, #2) ♦ Laura Thalassa | Review

It’s a really thrilling and emotional read, and I wish I could give Laura Thalassa’s War more than four stars. The storyline of the story keeps getting better and better as it explores more of the horsemen’s fascinating world and lives.

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.

War ♦ Laura Thalassa


There’s no denying Thalassa’s storytelling prowess. Every chapter reveals the emotions and challenges of the well-developed characters. This novel keeps you turning pages because of the tension between the main characters — Miriam and War —, their nuanced relationship, and the detailed world-building.

The reader is kept interested without being overly overwhelmed by the perfect pace. The right amount of romance, adventure, and supernatural elements are included. You’re constantly on the edge of your seat, turning the pages to see what will happen next because of the tensions and twists.

Thalassa deserves particular praise for her ability to build a world that is completely original and recognizable at the same time. Her skill as a writer is demonstrated by the way she skillfully combines the apocalyptic scenario with romance.



All things considered, War is an excellent series continuation that makes you want more. This book is a must-read if you love paranormal romance and dark romance stories, as well as fantastic apocalyptic fiction!

I received an advance review copy for free from SOURCEBOOKS Bloom Books, through NetGalley, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.

About Laura Thalassa

Laura Thalassa

Found in the forest when she was young, Laura Thalassa was raised by fairies, kidnapped by werewolves, and given over to vampires as repayment for a hundred-year debt. She’s been brought back to life twice, and, with a single kiss, she woke her true love from eternal sleep. She now lives happily ever after with her undead prince in a castle in the woods.

… or something like that anyway.

When not writing, Laura can be found scarfing down guacamole, hoarding chocolate for the apocalypse, or curled up on the couch with a good book.
