First off, the cover of this book is EPIC! I happened across an Instagram page and found one of my buddies had received a physical, ARC copy of this book, Plague Risers by Anthony Ergo. I salivated! I had to have a copy of the book! Sadly, copies were available (only across the pond🇬🇧 ), so I reached out to Anthony himself. Being such an awesome guy, he sent me a pdf till I can purchase one!
Now, back to the cover- as you already know, I am a huge lover of book covers. They're visual eye candy. As soon as I see a book cover as totally awesome as this one, several things run through my mind: (1) Do I have enough cash to purchase this book or (2) Do I have enough money on my book fund, credit card or in the bank account! You know you do it too- don't judge me! it's so true that once I find Plague Risers on Barnes and Noble, it's SO mine!
Okay, on to the story. Plague Risers is told from several perspectives and it's not confusing or distracting. The characters: Hal, Lars and
Julietta; they're enemies (Lars and Hal, English - Julietta, French) during the English invasions of the 1500's. They're also doing their best to avoid the deadly plague that's spreading across the land. When circumstances bring the two Englishmen and the French girl known as Le Diable Rouge together, they find themselves in the fight for their lives and the lives of everyone in both England and France from the maniacal Guy Mortalent.
So, I liked Plague Risers. I found no slow spots and the action held you from beginning to the end. There was great character and background information that was introduced, not thrown in. I also liked the historical links to the dauphin, the King and marriage to the di' Medici's, which happens to be one of my fav time periods.
I enjoyed this book so freaking much! It was an easy read and was only about 204 pages. If you can get a hold of it, grab Plague Risers. If you're in to zombies and French/English battles, you'll love this one. Now I'm on to another book. Have an awesome day! 📚
