My reviews for PESTILENCE (The Four Horsemen #1), WAR (The Four Horsemen #2), and FAMINE (The Four Horsemen #3)

They came to earth—Pestilence, War, Famine, Death—four horsemen riding their screaming steeds, racing to the corners of the world. Four horsemen with the power to destroy all of humanity. They came to earth, and they came to end us all.”

A TEMPEST OF TEA

(Untitled Duology #1)
Hafsah Faizal
YA Fiction | Paranormal/Fantasy
Spring 2022

A Tempest of Tea is the “first in a duology pitched as King Arthur meets Peaky Blinders with vampires. Set in Ettenia, an amalgamation of 1920s and Victorian London with a dash of ancient Rome, the novel follows a gang of outcasts in a deadly heist led by Arthie Casimir to save her tearoom—which fronts an illegal blood house, where local vampires can purchase fresh blood.”
