Famine (Four Horsemen, #3)



[A quick note: Iโ€™m in love with how this photo turned out. Not only is this my favorite book cover in the series, but the greenery is a perfect match to Famineโ€™s magic. The green foil is shimmery and beautiful.]

When Famine comes riding through Anaโ€™s small Brazilian town, sheโ€™s shocked that he doesnโ€™t recognize her. After all, she saved his life six years prior. When he tries to kill her, she takes matters into her own hands and goes after him. But the moment he remembers her, he claims her. Ana doesnโ€™t want to be claimed, but she canโ€™t help the attraction she feels towards the horseman, nor the past wounds they have in common.


Officially my SECOND favorite of this series. I devoured this one as quickly as the others. While I wasnโ€™t absolutely smitten with Anaโ€™s character initially, I really enjoyed the character development between her and Famine. I liked the deviation from the norm for Anaโ€™s character, giving her a completely different past in a stark way. As a prostitute, Ana was hardened in a way the previous FMCs were not. I must say, I was NOT expecting that. I also felt that Famine was one of the more severe alpha-holes of the horsemen. Heโ€™s supposed to be the coldest of them. After having read all four, I believe it to be true. This made for a difficult task in conquering Famine.


This story was told a little differently than the others. It starts in present time, and several chapters in, we get a couple of flashback chapters that explain the past. Iโ€™m not sure if I preferred it this way, but I understand why it was done. The overall plot and story was different from the first two in many ways, and itโ€™s the first time one of the horsemen have been deeply wounded by humanity far beyond what the others experienced.


The other thing I liked about this installment was the ending. While the first two endings were similar, this one took me by surprise. I loved that the author switched things up. Yay!!


Iโ€™m going to be really sad when I finish these books. I love that each of the four horsemen are noticeably different from each other, while still having many similarities. Iโ€™m enjoying these so much! ๐Œ๐˜ ๐‘๐€๐“๐ˆ๐๐†: ๐Ÿ’.๐Ÿ“/๐Ÿ“โญ๏ธ
