Book review: Pestilence by Laura Thalassa

Plot – 4.5
Characters – 4.5
Romance – 5
Writing style – 5

Story about a hilarious 21-year-old girl got abducted by an immortal man who spreads plagues for trying to kill him.

Well, I heard lots of great things bout this novel so I would be lying if I say I don’t have high expectations but no worries for it managed to meet them.

Plot – first of, I applaud the author for writing a ya novel that involves the Holy Bible or God in short. I mean, not only is it hard to tackle, it’s also a very sensitive issue that may trigger some.

Anyways, like I said, what made this novel unique is that, not often do we stumble upon books that deals with the bible that have a touch of romance to it.

Although I have to say, most of my questions about God failed to answer but hey, who am I to complain? I only originally came here for the romance. Haha.

Characters – one thing for sure, the author made leads who actually are not dumb like usual ya leads especially heroines. As if the author truly knows how readers hate it when the heroine began acting so stupid just because there’s a handsome guy in front of her. How she didn’t do her plan because he’s a pretty boy. Duh.

Going back, the characters are so hilarious and sweet. And you know what made me drawn into the heroine? It’s that she’s 21 years old and not 16 years old. Now, don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing wrong with being 16 because I was 16 once, like last year but my point is, it’s soooooo annoying to read characters who are sooooooooo young for their roles.

Romance – I like it. No need to explain. I mean, I enjoy reading their quarrels.

Writing style – I read it in one sitting. I cannot put in down. Fast paced.

Found in the forest when she was young, Laura Thalassa was raised by fairies, kidnapped by werewolves, and given over to vampires as repayment for a hundred year debt. She’s been brought back to life twice, and, with a single kiss, she woke her true love from eternal sleep. She now lives happily ever after with her undead prince in a castle in the woods.

… or something like that anyway.

When not writing, Laura can be found scarfing down guacamole, hoarding chocolate for the apocalypse, or curled up on the couch with a good book.



I am a typical 17-year-old reader and I love to read books and if you have a problem with that then why are you even here?
