Summary Famine (The Four Horsemen, #3) 107 review ï eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Õ T.A. Chase Free read Famine (The Four Horsemen, #3) Saving a dying man might be just what Famine the Black Horseman needs to feed his starving heartHaving been sacrificed by his village shaman Famine knows what it’s like to do anything to survive He wanders the world sowing drought and starvation in his wake Yet he hates being the Black Horseman than anything in the world except the man who ended his life al. In each one of these books some complaints I had about the previous works get addressed but unfortunately that reverts in the next book in the series Or it actually gets worseEnough with the condom preaching already It was laughable in the previous two books but in this one it s over the top because not only does Famine use them even though we re now outright told that the horsemen do not only not catch anything themselves but they also do not transmit anything but Famine actually lectures Ekundayo about it maybe TA Chase read about the AIDS problems in Africa and felt moved to warn potential gay African readers but please there is a time and a place for safe sex talk and it is NOT when we re talking about a mythological creature having sex with a human And then even laughably after all the lecturing soon thereafter they dispense with condoms anyway no testing done naturally because apparently THEN it s magically ok to just trust Famine because he says so Rolls eyes One complaint that this book addresses was that the horsemen seem to be racked with guilt over what they had done in their lives previous to becoming horsemen while not seeming to be bothered much about what they do as horsemen Well Famine is bothered He is very bothered In fact he didn t think he did anything wrong in his previous life he was sacrificed so his people could have rain It does surprise me a little that he never comments on the irony of then becoming the horseman who brings drought and famine But yay for having an active conscience Much so than War and Pestilence Famine is bothered by his job and he uestions Death about itI generally like Famine as a character He s a lot less frankensteiny than War and Pestilence though in retrospect the author could have made him a lot stronger his pesonality remains somewhat scattered through different parts of the book and I only put him together fully when writing this reviewEkundayo on the other hand I don t like so much He comes across as a selfish little prick without the slightest gratitude for a stranger saving his miserable life And I was predisposed to liking him because his life was made miserable by others I don t resent him for stealing the diamond heck power to him But I resent his diamond ber alles behaviour towards Famine Now I think Famine is in the wrong for hiding the diamond from Ekundayo he has good intentions but he should not really be surprised that this makes him less trustworthy in Ekundayo s eyes But Ekundayo never stops plotting and it rubs me the wrong way And then when he d just need to LISTEN he doesn t He s weak through and through and my sympathy for him eroded while Famine s love supposedly grew No wonder I didn t feel itSo basically I am not feeling the love From neither side Exactly what about Ekundayo does Famine find lovable And Ekundayo cares a whole lot about his diamond than he cares about Famine When the two get separated we also don t see how they might pine for each other we just get told afterwards that they did And neither actually works towards being reunited WeakInconsistencies continue to abound So horsemen don t get sick but apparently they can get injured But only a little Famine is uite sanguine when he swims in the river and contemplates the danger of going over Victoria Falls which apparently would not result in anything serious than a few cuts and bruises no than he d get by running through the jungle without looking where he s stepping Also it is highly unusual that any mortal can perceive a horseman but Famine worries about crocodiles in the Zambezi River What mortal animals other than humans can perceive the horsemen Apparently some sort of aura tells them to stay away Except when it doesn t The world building has holes than a big fat swiss cheese wheelOne gets possibly cleared up Death always makes a big deal out of telling the other horsemen never to divulge who they are but then seems oddly supportive when they do blurt it out to their new lovers I am guessing that this is some kind of test Death poses to them if their feelings are strong enough to overcome his warnings then it must be true love Or something I should not have to read 3 books to cobble up an explanation for a large inconsistency There are ways to indicate this to a reader without spelling it out Here it s handled clumsily because we never feel like the horsemen actually fear negative conseuences or that they re actually trying very hard to keep it a secret and are only moved by overwhelming love I also think it insults everyone s intelligence that after centuries they can t come up with better cover stories At least Famine tries but he s rather inept at itOnce again we get to see Lam and learn another tantalizing tidbit about him And once again it comes to nothing I am tired of the teasingAnd I hated the ending I do not hold much truck with the Christian concept of forgiveness Because believe me it is absolutely possible to move on and build a good life without forgiving somebody who has tried to ruin one s life and succeeded in Famine s case Forgiveness is commendable for people who show regret and are willing to atone but not for evildoers who never repent And no you do not have to forgive such a person for your own sake What matters here is that you will be happier if you do not hold onto feelings of anger hatred and revenge But you can let go of those without forgiving You can also let go of wishes for the perpetrator s apology restitution atonement and possible reconciliation sometimes none of that is possible certainly not if the perp is dead You can practice kindness compassion empathy and euanimity and IMO those matter while forgiveness towards people like the guy who killed Famine doesn t matter at all So bleagh to the endingI am gonna read book 4 because I want to find out what Lam is up to and I want to know why Death is different from the other horsemen But I do so under protest

Summary Famine (The Four Horsemen, #3) 107 review ï eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Õ T.A. Chase Free read Famine (The Four Horsemen, #3) Anged or not The longer he stays in Famine’s company the Ekundayo discovers he just might be falling in love with FamineOne bad choice of Ekundayo’s part and a future together seems out of reach Will Famine let his only possibility of love go or will he defy Death himself to keep EkundayoReader Advisory This book is best read in seuence as part of a serie. So I am now just under 600 pages in to this roughly connected series and there are uestions and less clarification for my time than is actually acceptable Centering on Famine or Fami as he is called gag his past life pre horseman was virtuous instead he was a character that seemed to have been bullied and mistreated and then sacrificed as part of a ritual to bring rain Without irony his job now is to bring famine and drought and apparently that is best done in Africa I will say that Fami does actually kick back some with Death s orders even as this seems to be a weak knee jerk reaction that has little to no follow through Now a diamond thief also mistreated in his own village is introduced to Famine by Death Could Death s job be to find his comrades a way out No clue Not a One Just as we aren t told why Death s reaction to the rule that the horsemen are not allowed to share who or what they are with their new human companions goes unpunished Or perhaps the cameo appearances from Lam Lamb of God that drops a hint as to his actual purpose and who he is might be but nothing is ever conclusive Oh and there is Death a total juxtaposition that doesn t answer uestions but seems to provide just what everyone needs of the momentI m frustrated and rather than slightly disappointed in the lack of consistency in these stories that travels further than horseman meets human relationship and sex ensues story ends Because the premise offered by both the choice of these four as protagonists as well as the opportunities for a climactic conflict that would address one or uestions that are consistently and constantly hinted at I won t even discuss the relationship in this I found Ekundayo to be dislikable and generally lacking in any appeal whatsoever This series is starting to suffer from inconsistencies and incomplete ideas hinted at and dropped with little to grab onto beyond the wish that some concept would be developed and concluded in a satisfactory manner I ve committed to read all the series and I shall do so steadily hoping that Archer brings some answers that remedy all the issues I received an eArc copy of the title from the publisher for purpose of honest review for The Jeep Diva I was not compensated for this review all conclusions are my own responsibility

Originally Reviewed for Love Bytes Same Sex Book Reviews 35 out of 40 starsToday I m bringing you my review of the next installment in The Four Horsemen series from T A Chase I m not sure if it is because this installment was set in Africa so had less cultural inconsistencies that I would notice or if it is because this was edited better than the first two in the series but I found myself liking this one a little than the first twoIn this the third installment in the series we focus on Famine In the beginning of the story a young man named Kibwe is sacrificed to the Gods to bring rain The only problem with the scenario The man who orders his sacrifice is the very man who has been training him to take his place eventually as the village shaman The elder shaman is jealous of the boy s power so he convinces the village to stake him down on a hill top and sacrifice him To make sure he dies the elder also viciously knifes him in the sideWhen the young man awakens he finds he has become Famine one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse For the next thousand plus years he wanders the Earth salting the ground and causing famine and drought leading to the deaths of untold thousands or even millions of humansThen one day he finds another young man who is trapped in the desert This young man Ekundayo has run away from a diamond mine where as an employee he had been treated as little than a slave Underfed and given little water his plight was hopeless To save himself he stole an uncarved diamond from the mine and ran into the desert where he fell into the ravine and trapped his arm Luckily someone hears his faint cries for help Or will it be lucky since the one who found him is FamineI enjoyed the back and forth distrust between Ekundayo and Famine Even once Ekundayo accidently drops one drop of Famine s salt on the island that they have been staying on and it begins to kill everything on the island Ekundayo still does not uite believe Famine s storyWhen Ekundayo returns to civilization against Famine s advice to sell the uncarved diamond and runs into very bad men can Famine with the help of Death save himWhile this one still had some inconsistencies and a few minor issues here and there in editing overall it was better than the previous two I again didn t like the harping on condom usage This series is about immortal beings that can t get or give any human diseases Enough already with the preaching about condoms Even with my 30 plus years involved with the HIV field I still found it to be too much Frankly it sounded uite a bit preachyI m rating this one as Liked it Above Average I think the series is headed in the right direction and I can t wait for Death s story next
