Kismet Andreas lives in fear of the shadows.
For the young tattoo artist, the shadows hold more than darkness. He is certain of his insanity because the dark holds creatures and crawling things only he can see—monsters who hunt out the weak to eat their minds and souls, leaving behind only empty husks and despair.
And if there’s one thing Kismet fears more than being hunted—it’s the madness left in its wake.
The shadowy Veil is Mal’s home. As Pestilence, he is the youngest—and most inexperienced—of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, immortal manifestations resurrected to serve—and cull—mankind. Invisible to all but the dead and insane, the Four exist between the Veil and the mortal world, bound to their nearly eternal fate. Feared by other immortals, the Horsemen live in near solitude but Mal longs to know more than Death, War and Famine.
Mal longs to be… more human. To interact with someone other than lunatics or the deceased.
When Kismet rescues Mal from a shadowy attack, Pestilence is suddenly thrust into a vicious war—where mankind is the prize, and the only one who has faith in Mal is the human the other Horsemen believe is destined to die.
4 Exciting Paranormal Stars!
First time reading this author and I have to admit that I am beyond impressed with this author’s writing!
My attention was captured from Page 1. The author’s attention to detail is not something you see often. I mean I have read stories and felt emotions while reading but this was like being right in the middle of it… lol in some parts, like the gore scenes, I needed small breaks. The author had me so wrapped up in the story, I couldn’t stop reading or cheering out loud for the good guys.
Kismet tore at my heart strings!! The author, with many heart-felt words, thrusts him in to our heart, and you want, no you are desperate to reach through the pages and wrap Kismet in a cocoon.
An intense and thrilling Journey with the Horsemen! There are some funny and tender moments between the male characters that made me smile.
I would definitely read more by this author.
