Book four in The Four Horsemen Series In the 1700s, Gatian Almasia was rich and a sought-after member of Parisian society. No one realised he d lost his reason for living three years earlier. When his sister accuses another nobleman of raping her, Gatian does what any older brother would do. He challenges the man to a duel, and kills him. Later that night, the dead man s family takes their revenge on Gatian. Gatian s death is just the beginning of the journey he must take as Death, the Pale Horseman of Apocalyptic fame. While he doesn t regret taking the nobleman s life, the guilt of not being there when his lover died builds a wall around his heart, and until he accepts forgiveness, he must always be Death. Pierre Fortsecue is a spoiled rich young man whose heart is broken by the man he thinks he loves. Finding himself alone in Paris, Pierre sinks into a haze of heroin. He gets a tainted baggie of the drug, and almost dies from it. Death arrives to take his soul, and something about Pierre touches the Pale Horseman, who steals him away to help heal. As Pierre heals and Death begins to feel again, they begin to wonder if love really is the only emotion needed to overcome desolation and destruction.”
I have to admit I was so excited to read Death’s book after reading the previous books in this series but for some reason this story just did not grab me as much as I had hoped it would.
Death feels guilt about a lover dying without him being there, than through a event which his sister had been hurt he kills a man and when revenge is taken against him for that death he is killed which causes him to be Death. I really loved Death’s character in this book!
Pierre has a serious drug problem and was hurt from a previous lover. Well this is where I am going to be honest and say I believe the story did not grab me because I was really not a fan of his character at all and the two of them together I honestly did not get.
So while I really liked where the author was going with this story and Death’s character I was just not a fan of Pierre and Death together. I just really did not feel a connection between them at all.
So I am sad to say as much as I have really liked this series this book was just not for me…
