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.

Blah narration

I listened to Pestilence and then started War immediately after. I ended up stopping halfway through and just bringing it up on Kindle to read. Pestilence takes place in North America, so basic, bland accents are fine. War takes place in the Middle East, beginning in Jerusalem. The narrator reads this in the exact same tone and voice for the two main characters - War and Miriam - as she did for Pestilence and Sara. No variation, to the point of where I forgot which story I was listening to. She gave the faux Angelic speech (author said it was Ancient Egyptian?) a good, ol' college try but there was no rise and fall or enunciation. Unless you're going to the extra effort to create your own language - like Dothraki - just don't. Overall good story, though.

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.

the narrator is supposed to be from Jerusalem...

I really enjoyed the first book and I did enjoy the second book but I will say there is a huge flaw with this particular book. Not once did I ever feel that Miriam was a woman from New Palestine or Jerusalem. The entire time, the narrator sounded like an American. It felt so inauthentic to me the entire time I was reading this book. The Story itself was good but it was so hard to get past the fact that everything felt so inauthentic. I hope the author takes that into account and fixes this issue for the rest of the series. Otherwise, I don't know if I could actually read them.

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.

A Warriors Heart to Tame

Miriam Elmahdy is not your typical woman, and these were not usual times. It was the end of days and the fate the world rested in her hands. I loved this book, how the character development flowed, and connections were palpable. This story was not a love story, but the question continuously presented itself, "Will love conquer all?" I enjoyed this story because Miriam had the heart of a warrior but compassion for others and a love for life. She did all she could to support those around her, and at times, that just wasn't enough. How do you conquer a god with followers both dead and alive? Find out in this epic continuation of the Four Horsemen. Now it is a wait for Famine!

Narration killed this for me

I LOVED the 1st book Pestilence and I was over excited to finally get War. But the narration is really bad. I read the reviews beforehand but didnt believe it. Its the same narrator from book 1 so how can it be that bad? My only guess is bad equipment was used. It sounds...muffled? Maybe like she's talking through a tube? Its hard to explain but I tried to get past it but I couldn't. The sound was so awful & got really annoying that I couldn't make it past chapter 5. I hate that because I'm sure the book is awesome. Please have this rerecorded so we can enjoy this!
