Saturday Star: Pestilence
Book/Series: Pestilence (The Four Horsemen #1) – Laura Thalassa
Pestilence was the first horseman, come to rid the world of the one thing corrupting it, killing it – Us. It was so hard for him to do what he’d been sent to do. His compassion, his humanity was his downfall. He’d been sent to wipe out the humans, but watching them succumb to the deadly plague, watching them die – was excruciating for him to watch.
It was heartbreaking to see how humans treated him. What they put him through. He was subjected to the worst of humanity – inhumane acts committed against him – and how ironic that those humans did it all in the name of saving humanity.
Then he went and fell in love with a human. How the mighty had fallen! That love brought out the best in him, and the worst. He became as human as the people he’d condemned.
And I guess in the end, he finally understood humanity.
