This is the first book in the Four Horsemen series.
Prescott Ellis – Pestilence.
They call us The Four Horsemen.
Four friends forged in fire and blood.
No one knows where we came from nor how we got our name.
Drake, Francis, West and I rule the financial industry like kings.
Gods in our own right.
We grew up with a fifth. A girl. Scarlett.
She was one of us until she was ripped away from her life. The only trace of her was dust in the wind.
One day she returned to the city and sought us out. Scarlett couldn’t remember who we’d been to her, but we recalled her all too well.
If she knew what was good for her, she would have never come back. The moment she stepped through the doors of Fortuity, it was the beginning of her end. And the start of our reign over the girl who wanted us dead.
I loved reading this book. The characters are brilliant and the storyline is great.
I love Scarlett and I don’t half feel sorry for her. The four men know her but she can’t remember them. She’s a strong character with some bite, given how they treat her. She’s fighting two battles really. The reason her parents have sent her there, and how she truly feels. The connection she has with the men is strong because they know where and yet she doesn’t know that.
I love the four men. Prescott, Francis, Drake and West are all so different and I like them all. They have their plans with the situation and so despite their feelings, they are treating her a little harshly. I’m looking forward to learning more about each of them and watching their characters develop.
Their plans are only mentioned. We don’t know what happened ten years ago, only that she was taken from them and had an accident. I’m desperate to know what their ultimate plan is and what actually happened. They won’t tell her the truth because they know why she’s been sent there. There’s a lot of secrecy going on.
As much as the vagueness is frustrating, it makes for a great book because I’m desperate to read the next now.
I love the scenes between the men and her. They were pretty hot. She feels she doesn’t have a choice, and really she didn’t, but there’s also a natural spark there. I like the glimpses of emotion from them all until they hide them again.
Overall, I would definitely recommend this book. The storyline is great and the characters are brilliant. I’m looking forward to reading the next book.
My rating: 5/5*
