    I've read each installment of this series in one go, and this book was no exception. My only criticism is I don't have a Book 5 to go straight onto next! Love love love.

    The Four Horsemen are so fun After back to back reading of books 1-3 I jumped on board of 4.The horsemen are definitely the stars of the series . The story was more enjoyable than 1-3 I didn't feel as disconnected the solely Victorian period may of added to it rather flipping from one era story to the other era story in the original 1-3 I enjoyed the series overall and wonder what else may come from the author .

    Merry Christmas. It's nearing Christmas and the Four Horsemen have a possibly apocalyptic event to prevent. Funny yet serious, this shows a side to the horsemen that isn't usually seen and it is a great read.

    Very enjoyable light read. Unlike the other books I've read by Dave Turner, this was a straight story, no jumping through time. It stands alone as a novel. You don't have to have read anything by him in the past to get into this book.

    This book could easily be called “The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse Holistic Detective Agency.” Conquest and Famine are called to visit Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli (Death has a day job and War has been left home after an unfortunate event involving the PM’s cat Mrs. Fluffykins) and asked to help find the son of a dear, departed, friend whose family Disraeli made a death bed promise to look after.

The reader has a bit of an outline as to what is going on because we see this dark entity lure the children (somewhat less than competently) by appearing to them in a form with which that entity feels they’ll be comfortable. On the seedier side of London, Elizabeth is leading a very Dickensian kind of life begging on the streets. When begging doesn’t satisfy what she needs to collect for survival for herself and her aunt, she’s not above picking a pocket or two. Though a small child, she is a pragmatist who understands that everyone dies (she has, after all, lost both of her parents and younger brother and lives in an area of London where survival is a skill) and that she needs to make herself useful to her new friends in order to give them a reason to keep her. Elizabeth’s only real long term plan is to live. There is a Doctor Who level brilliance to the antagonist of the piece. Turner coyly drips information to the reader. The antagonist can present itself as anyone you want to see (rather like The Testimony in Twice Upon a Time but with much more sinister intent). We soon learn that the ability can be both a gift and a curse when we meet a man manipulated by the dark entity. What we know for sure is that the antagonist knows of the Four Horsemen and would like to keep any leading information from them. Seriously, the way this character is written is utterly tantalizing and stunningly brilliant. From the start there’s a sense that it will be the best of baddies because though it could force it prefers to cajole but that doesn’t always work out. Turner is a brilliant writer and very polished. Transitions flow seamlessly, emotion is balanced with humor in adjustment. If you like humor and good writing and ESPECIALLY if you like Douglas Adams, Terry Pratchett and Jasper Fforde, pick Four Horsemen up today. While in the unique spirit and humor of the aforementioned writers, you have not read anything like this, I assure you. If you like a good mystery but aren’t into all that supernatural stuff, pick it up. You will thank me.

    Despite being the fourth book in the How To Be Dead series, Four Horsemen works well as a standalone novel. Set in the Victorian era, it teams Death, Famine, Conquest and War (my favourite) up with Beelzebub to prevent an even worse being of unspeakable horror taking over the world. Well written with some real 'chuckle aloud' moments, the humour is wonderfully irreverent and British, and the plot ticks along at a good pace. Dave Turner has definitely become a must-buy author for me. More please!

    In this book you get to see the more tender side of the 4 horsemen, it gave me a few giggles at times and had a heart warming ending.

    This is the fourth novels in the How to be Dead series, and I think it’s my absolute favourite so far. Perhaps because the four horsemen of the apocalypse, Conquest, Famine, War, and Death (my favourite) are all together, trying to solve a mystery in Victorian London. They team up with Beelzebub to fight a creature from the Other World kidnapping children. This lovely novel is full of laugh out loud moments, action, and touching moments. The story has everything, even chocolate Hobnobs. I read th This is the fourth novels in the How to be Dead series, and I think it’s my absolute favourite so far.

I’m looking forward to reading book five!

    Brilliant Although on the short side, this latest story is funny, exciting and surprisingly moving. The depiction of Victorian London is broadly painted but feels realistic. The baddy is a real baddy, even compared to Beelzebub, and almost a match for the Horsemen...almost. It even has a happy ending !

    Amazing This is a stand alone novel, and it's just such a great read. It's a comedy fantasy with lashings of adventure about the four horsemen of the apocalypse sharing a house in Victorian London whilst performing covert operations for the government. It's a ripping yarn that should be a bestseller!

    Four Horsemen and a little lady In an earlier period than Dave Turner's other books the four horsemen are still working together as secret agents of the British government. When London is threatened by a being from another dimension they must save the world and the talented little lady who is the key to it all.

    Superb Absolutely on form, an excellently written, highly absorbing piece of humorous escapism. Highly recommended. And time Amazon stopped demanding a minimum number of words for a review. Read the book and give it the length of review you choose.

    Funny story, very enjoyable I really enjoyed the 4th installment of the how to be dead series. Reading the 4 horsemen prequel was not only very funny but great seeing them in action.

    Jo

    No Dave? A different angle than the three other books, focussing on a Victorian Christmas with War, Conquest, Famine and Death ... With their housekeeper, Mrs Burgess, and a rescued orphan Elizabeth. Old gods, other worlds, the birth of the underground, and of course Beezlebub!

    A+ Great story. My favorite out of the whole series. I loved getting to know the apocalypse boys better. Elizabeth reminded me of a sweet version of Claudia from Interview with a Vampire.

    A side story by Dave Turner on the Four Horsemen. Another great read and a hard book to put down. Always a slightly different element to each of these books but worth the read. Especially if you want something that isn't overly taxing on the brain.

    Entertaining, full of funny and touching moments. The four horsemen are charged with finding out why children are going missing, and what they discover results in a battle to save us all from annihilation.

    Fantastic Another belter from Dave, I highly recommend this series. I love the laugh out loud moments and easy flow of the story. Only problem with this book is that I couldn't put it down!

    Eldritch Horrors threaten London! I really liked it and I'm not giving anything away, you'll just have to read it. It's very British with a good dollop of humour. Go on! It's worth it!

    Another winner A funny, well written story of the 4 horsemen of the apocalypse, some missing children and an unspeakable monster from another dimension, set in Victorian London. Dave Turners books always cheer me up!

    Loved it, just as I did all the others in the series. In the true sign of a good book, I didn't want to put it down but didn't want it to finish either. Can't wait for the next instalment Mr T :)

    I finally got round to reading this book, took me long enough. But once I started I couldn't put it down, loved the humor and jokes throughout as well as the overall story.

    Fun prequel Very fun prequel book to the how to be dead trilogy. Death is not a major character, but that's ok because more time is spent with the other characters. Enjoyable read.

    Fantastic x If you're having withdrawal caused by the massive loss of Terry Pratchett then Dave Turner goes quite a way to filling that void x

    Good read Yes this is still a good book but if you wanted to follow the first 3 then this doesn't. Hope the last one is better
