Publisher's Summary

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.

<3

Admittedly, I’m only part-way into the book. However, the narration sounds really murky, like it was recorded with a bad microphone. I’m confused, because it’s the same narrator that did the last book, and this wasn’t an issue. I don’t know if audible could run the file through some sort of software to clean it up, but it’s a shame to have something distract from the hard work of such a magnificent author and narrator. I probably listened to Pestilence 3-4 times, and am sure this story will be just as amazing. =) But, a better audio-file would really facilitate the immersive experience in regard to listening to the story.

ehhhhhh

I love, love, loved the 1st book to start this series. 2nd book not so much. All of sudden did the narrator (whom I usually enjoy) develop a lisp, very distracting

Soooooo Goooood!!!

War is probably one of the best books I have ever read. I read Pestilence and loved it. I love all the Laura Thalassa books, but this one is probably my favorite. You want to hate War just like Myriam does but then you see his softer side and you can't help but fall in love with him too and his love for Myriam. I couldn't stop listening. Finished in two days. The love story is phenomenal and the chemistry is amazing!! I can't wait to read the next one. I agree that Susannah Jones voice has changed a bit, but she's still my all time favorite narrator. She just brings it to life like no other.

Good but not great

The romance felt lazily crafted. I didn’t like how War immediately sensed a connection with Miriam and their love was built from there. He knew nothing about her and yet almost from the start she was exempt from his rules or anger. Felt sloppy.

done did t again!

I love reading this book the first time and couldn't wait for the audiobook. I was not disappointed! Laura is one of the best writers when it comes to enemies-to-lovers and War is most definitely one of them.

Wow!

Laura Thalassa never seems to disappoint me with her books. She makes me laugh out loud when I'm listening with her character's antics or remarks and the writing style is loose and refreshing. There is just a bit of insecurity between the characters, but enough that it's enthralling but not over-done so that you're rolling your eyes, or huffing because the characters are just stupid - no. Just enough to get you more emotionally invested than you originally planned to be. This series is amazing and I'm sure the next one will be even better.

Another Epic Story!!!

LOVE this author, LOVE this narrator, and LOVE this book!!!!!! What an incredible story of what love is, and the power it wields. This book definitely kept me going, and I'm going to miss these characters, so so much! Laura's writing is so good at bringing her characters to life that I always feel like I know them (as if they were real) by the time I'm done. That, to me, is the mark of an amazing author. When you couple that kind of writing talent with the incredible voice acting of the narrator, it's a match made in heaven. I'm so very sad that I will have to wait for the next installment.

Enjoyable

Enjoyable listen but a few niggles, including the transformation of outlook that seems to come about out of nowhere. Would have enjoyed it a lot more if that transition was more convincing.
