What’s worse than being pursued by the Four Horsemen?
Discovering you’re the Fifth.
Verity Jameson’s day switches from mundane to disastrous when she runs down a stranger with her car. Fortunately for Vee, she can’t kill Death.
Death, who just happens to be one of the Four Horsemen, and he’s looking for her.
The Four Horsemen spend life preventing the end of the world, not bringing on an apocalypse. As gatekeepers of the portals which exist between the human world and other realms, the team fight to keep the portals closed and the supernatural forces under control. Without their fifth member, the Four Horsemen are losing the battle.
Now they’ve found Verity and what they tell her goes far beyond the conspiracy theories Vee spends her free time investigating.
A new life with four dark, sexy and dangerous men fighting demons, vampires and fae? Not what Vee had planned, but a hell of a lot more interesting than her boring job in tech support.
So what happens when the unbreakable bond of the Five takes control in a way none of them expected?
Verity Jameson leaves a normal and mundane life. She works for an insurance company by day and blogs in her flat alone by night. She keeps to herself and likes it that way. That is until she meets Death or well Heath who claims to be one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. That’s when Vee’s life is not only turned upside down but also revealed to be something she never thought it would be.
So I should begin my review by saying I have never read a true reverse harem novel and did not know that this book was in fact a reverse harem when I purchased it. I went on a one click spree one evening stocking up on books that I thought would get me in to the Halloween spirit. I mean the four horsemen and the apocalypse what more can a girl ask for?
Well the author answered that question for me really quickly! A fifth horsemen that is not only never heard of but also a woman so a horsewoman. Not only is she the fifth but she is also the truth that will hold the horsemen together and make them succeed in their quest. Which is not to end the world but to save it!
I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed this book and its plot. I love a good love triangle but that is as far as I have gone with it comes to romance. I have actually shied away from any books that have the reverse harem label as I for some reason think I would dislike them. Honestly though I enjoyed the whole love pentagon immensely!
The characters themselves are so well thought out to exhibit characteristics and attitudes of their power or title- ie the horsemen of war is angry and volatile. Verity herself is truth and in turn seeks the truth and can also tell when someone is lying. he author did an amazing job of developing each horseman as well as a paranormal world that is so well hidden in plan sight that includes demons, fae and vampires oh my!
Rating- 5 out of 5 cupcakes- I would recommend this to any one who enjoys a well written paranormal read!
