What's worse than being pursued by the Four Horsemen?
Discovering you're the Fifth.
Verity Jameson's day switches from mundane to disastrous when she runs down a stranger with her car. Fortunately for Vee, she can't kill Death.
Death, who just happens to be one of the Four Horsemen, and he's looking for her.
The Four Horsemen spend life preventing the end of the world, not bringing on an apocalypse. As gatekeepers of the portals which exist between the human world and other realms, the team fight to keep the portals closed and the supernatural forces under control. Without their fifth member, the Four Horsemen are losing the battle.
Now they've found Verity and what they tell her goes far beyond the conspiracy theories Vee spends her free time investigating.
A new life with four dark, sexy and dangerous men fighting demons, vampires and fae? Not what Vee had planned, but a hell of a lot more interesting than her boring job in tech support.
So what happens when the unbreakable bond of the Five takes control in a way none of them expected?
I wasn’t sure what to expect from The Four Horsemen: Legacy; Reverse Harem reads have been totally hit or miss for me lately. The book market is flooded with them now that they have become the next ‘trend’ and its easy to find some crapy books. But, I am happy to report Legacy isn’t one of those crappy reads!
We meet Verity right away. She seems like a normal English young woman, working a job and living her life. Then she hits a guy with her car and her life changes forever. As expected in a book with paranormal elements, there is a bit of world building that has to occur. The guys (the Horsemen) have to convince her they are really the biblical Four Horsemen and that she is the fifth. They also introduce her to a world of other paranormal elements she only though existed in books: demons, fae, shifters. There is a bit of set up for what will be the overall story arc, but the book ends with the reader still slightly unsure of exactly what Verity is. I can’t wait to dive into book 2 for sure. Legacy is a slow burn RH; by the end of this book, she has only kissed one of the guys.
Cornell Collins and Fleur Strange did a great job with the narration for Legacy. The accents are delicious!
