The slow burn here was sooo good!!
I kind of forgot how awful these Horsemen are in the beginning, even though they are literally the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. Famine might be the worst one of them yet, but that made the payoff for him falling in love that much better. The heroine here is a prostitute and feisty enough to stand up to Famine. I really enjoyed their dynamic and banter.
Ana da Silva once saved Famine’s life years ago when she was a teen. Years later, after having to sell her body in order to survive in this apocalyptic world, she sees him again – but he doesn’t recognize or remember her. He leaves her to die but she manages to survive. And what does Ana do? She gets pissed. She goes back to him and threatens him, which only amuses Famine. But he keeps her around because he’s intrigued by her fire.
This slow burn enemies-to-lovers romance was fantastic! I loved Ana and Famine’s dynamic, how they constantly kept getting in each other’s faces. Ana is definitely not afraid of a little ole Horseman of the Apocalypse. I thought the pacing was great and the way they slowly fell for each other worked well for me.
I love this fantasy romance series, despite our terrible (anti)heroes, and this book has only made me that much more excited for Death’s book! Even though it’s not my favorite (mine is still War), Famine is another great installment that will make you question your morals.
