This second installment of the Four Horseman novels was worth waiting for. As we meet the main character Ryder, he really touches the heart as the reader is given glimpses into the hardships he endured in his life. Once he meets Gabrielle, seeing the struggles they go through just to find happiness in the end made this book a very interesting read I look forward to future books in this series not only to find out how it ends, but to see all four horseman find love.
I just finished reading my new favourite book from Natalina Reis. I know I tend to say ‘favourite’ every time she releases a new book- but this story has everything you could want from a great paranormal romance. Fantastic characters, chemistry, secrets, suspense, a little danger, drama, and a wonderfully captivating storyline. I couldn’t love it more than I did. Ms. Reis met all my expectations, and more! Colour me hooked!
Dark Feathers weaves a wonderful tale of a dark angel named Phoenix who falls in love with a human, Joan. He was sent on a mission, but never expected to be so drawn to the woman he was meant to keep tabs on. But the higher power he answers to has Joan firmly in their sights- and things won’t end well for her unless Xander intervenes. Placing himself in harm’s way will be worth it if it means keeping her safe. What happens when everything is said and done? Grab a copy and discover all the intriguing details for yourself- you are bound to love it as much as I have.
As I have said several times before, I have loved every word of this fantastic story, and now I can’t wait to see what Ms. Reis has in store for us next!
Thank you, Ms Reis!

Romance, suspense, fantasy – this book has it all. I am so thankful this author and book found me. Reis is becoming a go to author for me and this latest book was another wonderful escape for me. I loved every moment with these characters and devoured every page. Simply a delight!
Have you ever picked up a book by a favorite author only to realize that your dreams have come true? That happened to me today. I picked up DARK FEATHERS and something felt a little familiar about it. I recognized 2 characters in the first chapter so looked back over this author’s catalog. Yup, in July 2017 I read LAVENDER FIELDS and in my review hoped Joan’s story would be told one day. Well after fast clapping and and doing a happy dance, I went back to reading.
“Oh, be still, my naughty bits.” Joan thinks that of Nix and Phoenix thinks that of chocolate chip cookies. Haha. I honestly think she and I would be friends if she were my neighbor.
I cannot recommend this book enough. I would recommend reading Lavender Fields also. SUCH GOOD AND ORIGINAL STORIES. Humor and angst and burning looks and best friends.
5 stars for Lavender Fields and 5 stars for Dark Feathers equals 10 stars!!!!
Review by @mauraharper
Drawing Strength From Words by CA King was a fun read. I would give this book a four out of five stars. This is the second book in the series. I love Gabby! She is a fun character to read just because of how disconnected she is from the current time. She doesn’t let that stop her though, her competitive nature and need to prove herself is so relatable. I loved the air of mystery and being able to put the plot together as I go.
Drawing Strength From Words is the second novel in the Four Horsemen series by C. A. King. This is my third novel by this author.
Being one of the Horseman is a thankless job for Gabrielle especially when she is portrayed as some sort of brute in history. Begrudgingly she takes a back seat to her brothers, causing her heart to have a shield around it.
Ryder has been moving since his parents were killed, putting through the systems and on the side of the law for crimes he did not do. While he has never felt an attraction to someone before, becomes of the life he leads, that changes when he is thrown in the path of a mysterious beauty.
I wasn’t sure what to make of this novel because it had been a while since I read this series and was a little confused. But the plot pulled me in really quick.
Ryder was an interesting character with a background and history I wasn’t sure how I would be if I was in his shoes. Gabrielle was a strong and fierce woman. I would think she would be considering she has so many brothers. The dynamics and bitterness she had held creating even more of a suspenseful air about her. Wanting to know more about her.
I really enjoyed this story and I am looking forward to the next book. I wonder whose story are we going to read about next.
Drawing Strength From Words
A Four Horseman Novel
By C. A. King
☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆
This is a full length novel. Loaded with Paranormal Suspense and Romance. Make sure you read the series in order. You won’t be sorry, it is that good!
C. A. King has done it again. This story reads so well, you won’t want to put it down. It is fast paced and will leave you wanting more. As you read about Gabrielle ‘ s story. You will find you are supporting her journey. This story is a Four Horsemen Novel, but you will discover the sister has a part in this paranormal series. I love everything about this book, C. A. King’s characters, her paranormal setting, suspense, and romance, that will keep you reading. You can bet I will be looking forward to reading the next book in this exciting series.
I loved this book and it just might be my favorite. This author continues to create stories that are full of romance, suspense and fantasy. The characters are connectable and they made the story come alive and feel real. Joan and Phoenix, one is looking for a roommate and the other a dark angel. What they didn’t expect is to fall for each other. When the dark lord comes calling will Phoenix be able to protect her? Strong characters with great chemistry. I highly recommend this must read story.
Drawing Strength From Words (A Four Horseman Novel Book 2)
By C.A. King
Drawing Strength from Words is book two in the A Hour Horseman series. I have read other books by C.A King and I would have to say that this is probably not my favourite. I have to say that I was a little lost reading this book, but then it may have been because I haven’t read book one. On saying that however I do have to say the C.A. King’s writing style of being able to let you get to know the characters is very much on par in this book. I would highly recommend that you start with book one in the series, and I hope you enjoy reading yet another great series by this wonderful author
Drawing Strength From Words (A Four Horsemen Novel Book 2) by C.A. King
Drawing Strength From Words (A Four Horsemen Novel Book 2) by C.A. King was an excellent addition to this series. I love how King begins with the history of the Four Horsemen that is also seen at the beginning of book 1. This helps make this book an easy novel to read out of order in the series. This novel focuses on Gabrielle and Ryder. I loved seeing the characters from book one present in this novel though. Kong does an excellent job with the development of the story and also with the characters. It is filled with action and excitement. The story seemed to move easily and quickly. This was an excellent read and I highly recommend it!
