The third of the Four Horseman Novels, Hitting the High Notes was every bit as spellbinding as the first two stories in the series. Action packed, with suspense and several little surprises. Our hero in this story is Uriel. He is quite a bit different than his siblings but every bit as lethal. Our heroine is quite a surprise. C.A. King gives us a bit of mystery in this one which makes the story even more riveting. A light romance, easy to read, and well worth your time.
This is the second of the Four Horseman novels and I find myself anxiously anticipating the next two. In this quick little romance poor Ryder never seems to catch a break. One mess after another. He just can’t keep it together. Then the beautiful Gabrielle walks into his life. Will he make a mess of this too? Gabrielle, beautiful, strong and coolly intelligent. Will she take a second look at this poor mess of a guy? Everything is not as it seems, and the mysterious Dante complicates matters immensely. You will need to pick this little novel up and give it a quick read. In Drawing Strength From Words, C. A. King gives us strong characters and a unique little adventure.
Hitting the High Note by C.A. King (Book 3 in the Four Horsemen series) was a fun quick read. This book tells us about Uriel who thinks himself a cowboy. Which was again unique and different to me. That’s something I like about the author is her ability to come up with different characters and plots. Overall I really enjoyed it and look forward to others. 4 star rating.
Drawing Strength From Words by C.A. King is a quick light read. It is book 2 in the Four Horsemen series. This book is about Gabrielle who is one of the horsemen which I thought was super cool and unique to have a woman in that role. I only say that because most things I have seen always portray them as men. Overall I enjoyed the book. I thought it was a fun read and I look forward to others. 4 star rating.
Hitting the High Note is the third book in C.A. King’s fantasy series of Four Horsemen Novels. The series takes place in a modern day setting with a beautiful and elaborate mythology at its heart. There are demigods and demons, fighting over the fate of the world. There are horsemen and there are keys – soulmates tied together by their destiny.
As the title suggests, the protagonist of Hitting the High Note is a musician. Bekka has worked in her family music shop all her life, and it seems likely she will continue running it unless she plucks up the courage to audition for an orchestra. I enjoyed how the music was threaded through the plot – I’ve always been a fan of musical magic! I also appreciated Bekka’s taste for tea – the descriptions of her making and drinking tea made my mouth water!
This series is fantastic – the world is well developed and complex and the mythology links in with various familiar mythologies whilst still being unique and surprising. The characters at the centre of each book continue to appear in the background of subsequent books, so it’s great to catch up on them. And Uriel, the horseman this book focuses on, has already appeared in the past so I was eager to learn more of his character.
I would recommend reading the books in order, to get the full story, although King does a good job of reminding readers of what has happened so you could probably get away with reading this on its own if you’re particularly after a fantasy book about music.
For me, this is another five star book. It’s a great series, and I’m particularly excited about having a music-focused book! I’d recommend the series to fans of mythology and urban fantasy. Looking forward to reading the next one!
I give Hitting The High Note (A Four Horsemen Novel Book 3) by C.A. King, 4 stars.
Bekka owns a small music store passed down through her family and must make ends meet in order to keep it running. But her love of music makes her even more determined to make sure this works. Unfortunately, her people skills are not that great. Part of her wishes she could be more like her best friend, Veronica. But Veronica has her own issues — she is constantly searching for the one man to make her dreams come true. She has this pull — this need — to find the right one.
Uriel, one of the four horsemen, loves the wide openness of the country, but a lead takes him into the heart of the city. There he runs into all sorts of things telling him the demons are closer than he believed. Can he stop the demons from getting what they are after? Can he find it himself? What about these two girls who look like twins? Is what his family says true?
It has been quite a while since I have read book two, but I was quickly reminded just how much I like these books and characters. While the suspense part of the series continues, the love story part is quite different from the previous books. Just when you think the story will go one way, it surprises you and does something completely different. I love to be kept guessing in this way. And the fact that our favorite family is back makes it that much better. The author quickly draws you in and I eagerly await the next book to see what is next.
If you are a fan of the paranormal, I highly recommend this book and series.

“Humans have always required knowledge.”
CONFESSION: This author is an auto one-click for me because I enjoy all of her books. I read these books based on the author’s name alone.
Glad I got that out of the way…
HITTING THE HIGH NOTE is Book 3 of the Four Horsemen Series and it is my very strong recommendation that you read this series in order. This story is Uriel’s and he may be my favorite sibling.
I do not want to give anything away in this story so I will continue to be vague, just know that there was an ad that said… “Demons and followers seeking the key to the gates of hell…” I mean, how can a story not be a 5 star read with THOSE words written into a paragraph.
I absolutely recommend this story, this series and this author.

Hitting the Hight Note is Book #3 in The Four Horseman Novel series. I definitely think these books should be read in order for the story to really flow and to get a better understanding of the Horseman. This book is just as captivating as the others, I was hooked from the first page with the brilliant writing style C.A King brings us, she writes with so much description that you can’t help but visualise the whole read, it helps create the illusion in your mind that you are really there within the story yourself.
This book isn’t short on twists and turns, it definitely leaves you wondering what could happen next and leaves you on the edge of your seat. This book has action, adventure & danger and epic characters that you can’t help but love to follow their journey.
You will never be disappointed when reading a book from C.A King you will become immersed in her worlds she creates and makes you never want to leave. I can’t wait to see what is brought next to this series, I’ll eagerly be awaiting more!

Drawing Strength from Words by C.A. King a five-star read that turns myths on their heads. This is number two in the Four Horseman novels series and they go from strength to strength, I read number one a while ago and then read number two and three in very quick succession and now I just need number four. Out of the three I have read so far number two is my current favourite as it just takes the whole story and adds something extra to it, this whole series has been full of twists and turns and has kept me in the edge of my seat all the way though, but this one just had the extra layer. Gabriel what a character, she really does pull I out of the box, ad when you add Ryder to the mix it just creates an explosive story that will suck you in, spitting you out the other side changed.

Hitting the High Note by C.A. King a five-star read that will have you hitting the high notes. This is number three in the Four Horseman Novels and its best to read them in order as it keeps you hooked and keeps you drawn in all the way, the author has done their own twist to the Four Horseman tale and just keeps it fresh and interesting. As always, this author makes you see the story portrayed in front of you, the descriptions are so detailed its like the story comes alive as you read it. The story between Bekka and Uriel will keep you on tenterhook’s, in fact the whole story does that but between them they do keep this story great.
