Not my favorite book of the series.. BUT I FUCKING KNEW ABOUT NOT TRUSTING SETH.

Chaos is the fifth installment of The Four Horsemen. I honestly have no idea how many books there are in this series but I feel like they are just getting a smidge boring and a bit dramatic. Portia was so annoying in this book and it just ended up frustrating me. She turned into such a thirsty and whiny girl who was jealous because Vee had the attention of all the guys. Ugh, eye rolling to the extreme while reading t
There’s something ego-boosting about being surrounded by men who other women in the room are drawn to, and having the guys completely oblivious. - Verity/ Vee
Whoa. Stop there. Nobody ‘shares’ me. In case you hadn't noticed, I'm the one who calls the shots. None of them would touch me without consent. - Verity/ Vee

Right well this series just took a serious swerve into WTFville. Did I still enjoy it? Yes. Would I still recommend it to readers of romance, especially polyandry? Absolutely. Am I go

Another amazing book in this enchanting series. I honestly can't get enough of Vee and her pony boys. Lisa has executed the perfect balance, moving the plot along at a steady, consistent pace while also giving the right amount of focus to development of the relationships. Plenty of heart-pounding moments and sexy times. Love, loved it. I never want this series to end. I'm completely addicted. One of the best reverse harem series out there right now, in my opinion.

The fifth book of this amazing series where the author has managed to breathe new life into this very old biblical legend of the Four Horsemen. If you haven't already read the other books, Legacy, Bound, Hunted & Guardians I would strongly recommend doing so, before moving on to this

The Pony Boys and Vee are back! Chaos reigns. They have never been so threatened, so lost. They have never faced an opponent like this; one they don't understand, one that seems to use their own powers against them, one that may be stronger than they are. For the first time, the Four Horseman are unsure of themselves. They are drawn to their Fifth, Truth, but they still don't fully trust her role. Is she meant to help them or destroy them? Their hesitancy and doubt hurt Vee and make her question ...more

So, Guardians ended with a dead Joss and a panicked Vee. Chaos picks up right there and the gang begins to piece together what is happening. The guys are being targeted by their own power. Joss looked starved to death (famine) and Ewan had a disease of some sort (pestilence). Having put this together, they realize they need to reach out and get some help. Reenter Syd.

Saw the bad guy coming miles away - and can't believe the characters didn't, tbh - but LOVED the reveal of who he is and what's going on. Really really great!

Chaos really picked up pace from all the other books. I actually think it's my favourite.

Flew through this book so fast And really enjoyed it. I highly recommend reading "The Four horseman"

The enemy of my enemy is my friend - Twists within twists for our Horsemen.

It was hard to wait for this book, the fifth in The Four Horsemen series, and LJ Swallow did not disappoint, but then, for me, she never has.

Picking up from the particularly shocking end in Guardians, Chaos carries the momentum well as various theories are getting thrown around as to who it is wanting to take the Horsemen out, and bring about the opening of The Portals. And whoever it is just might be attaining their goal

Holy Moly! I can't even begin to try and explain anything about this next instalment, in the exciting and gripping Four Horsemen series. I mean, if you haven't already read the first four parts, what are you waiting for?

You wouldn't think after four seriously intense parts, that there would be anything else, that could be thrown in the mix for Vee and the gang. But shocks are still hard and fast coming. More hot and heavy heat, more nail biting and more surprises. With one huge shocker thrown i
Hello again you magnificent Horsemen,

I knew shit was going to go down, and enemies would show their faces and ...well I wasn't wrong.

Chaos it seems is more than just the title of the book and damn it's good.
Our boys and Vee are back in with resident Queen Fae Portia, and set about unmasking the big bad that's threatening both them and the human world.
We get some answers, but others remain just out of reach for us.

A visit to Scotland brings with it a satisfying blast from the past ( think book 1

OMG! Be forewarned there is a huge cliffhanger, so Ms. Swallow HAS to publish the next book in this series soon!
Chaos is the 5th book in the Horsemen series. The books keep getting better and better. I thought “Guardians” was a mindblower of a book but “Chaos” surpasses it. So many mysteries, adventures, and intrigue. Some twists and turns I didn’t see coming and theories that I had were confirmed.
The first couple of chapters are very nerve-wracking as we find out whether Joss lives or dies. A

Oh wow is this story really starting to pick up pace. We're now starting to see who all the real players are in the story and finally, yes finally, the big bad is revealed and whilst I'd already kind of guessed who it was, I hadn't guessed what it is! It's really starting to get exciting now and I can't wait to read the next book. I still have so many unanswered questions and more have arisen after reading Chaos. I'm loving how Verity and the four horsemen are also starting to bond and become mo ...more
Chaos is the 5th installment in The Four Horsemen series, and they must be read in order. I've been reading this series from the beginning, and as I think I said in a previous book's review I enjoy the romance parts more than the urban fantasy (UF) parts of the series. Because a majority of this installment was the ongoing UF mystery of the series, it is so far my least favorite of the series. If you have already been reading this series, and like the UF mystery, you will really enjoy this one a ...more

Things just keep heating up and not just between Vee and The Pony Boys! They've discovered a traitor right in their midst who's been doing his best to divide and conquer. With the guys working with unexpected help what will we see take place in the next book!? Intrigue, suspense and passions run amuck in this edition to a very page turning series ♡♡♡♡ Finally we see Vee and Ewan get closer but with quite the unexpected outcome. The next book can not be releases soon enough! Bravo to Ms. Swallow ...more

An explosive read!

Questions will be answered...
Trust will be rebuilt...
And the true threat to the world will be revealed...

Wow! Just wow...that ending! Another explosive hit in this stunning, chaotic read!

Tensions are mounting. Chaos is coming. The Horsemen/woman are caught in the middle - who can they trust? Who can they believe?

I love how Joss breaks the tension between all of them - his humour knows no bounds!

A great ending that leaves you reeling and aching for more.

Oh WOW!!! I was pulled in from the beginning! Fabulous paranormal/fantasy world, I absolutely love this series of books, the action starts slowly and builds, The characters are well defined early on and blossom throughout the series, you can feel the tension building between the main characters early in the series which develop wonderfully as each book progresses. Very well written storey. There are no cliff hangers as such but each book always leaves you wanting more so be warned though once yo ...more

Chaos is the next installment of LJ Swallow's The Four Horsemen series. It is packed with suspense, combustible chemistry, answers as well as many questions as to what will happen to the Four Horemen. It is written in such a way that had me burning through the pages to find out what would happen next. As they search for the truth behind what has happened between the demon and fae, more is unveiled.

I cannot wait to see what happens next in this series. LJ Swallow needs to come out with the next b

Oh man, this story just keeps getting more and more awesome! Now that more things are being answered I love seeing how the dots are connecting! Man I just knew Seth was a guy to be watched! I am very interested in seeing how things continue to progress with Vee and the guys now that certain things seem to be completed. I definitely can't wait to see what the other guys think of what each other learned at the end of this one! The next book is definitely going to be difficult to be patient for! :D
Jan 25, 2018 rated it did not like it
Sorry, but this didn't do it for me. The book felt like a repeat of the 3rd and 4th installment just with changing bed partners. The progress in the "investigation" is ridiculous. The four Horsemen are running in circles. They only find clues by accident or if they are forced on them. Why would War be leading the investigation? He clearly has no people skills or any sleuthing talent. After finishing the book I'm rather frustrated. The series started off so nicely, but I doubt I will read book nu ...more
Finally we start to get some answers to all the puzzles surrounding the five horsemen and i cant wait to see where this goes.

I knew i was right about Seth he was just too shady to not have been anything else. This reveal sets up the next book nicely and now that Vee is fully connected with her powers it will be interesting to see why she is here and what she can do.

A few moments that were slightly unbelievable along with some pointless scenes (snowballs anyone?) but quite satisfied with this in

RH & Romance Review
Finally! In so many ways. I feel like this book is where it’s all finally cracked. Until now, as a reader, I’ve been getting right along with Vee and the Horsemen about what’s really going on, dead ends, and belligerent informants. It is an exciting book, that makes you want to keep cracking onto see what’s coming next. And it’s very nearly what I deem to be a good length RH novel! Really excited to see what the next book brings.

Action packed!

Wow! You definitely need to read this series in order. Chaos picks up where Guardians left off and we find out if Joss lives. Vee and the guys are still trying to solve the mystery, and are getting closer and closer. We find out who is behind it all, and end with another big cliffhanger.

What I love about this series is that each book is a good mix of action, humor, fun, and of course romance. I can’t wait to see what happens in Descent!

I’m dead. I was dying, I died and now I’m dead. I am so so in love with this series. I don’t want it to end. We finally learn more about Seth in this book, the horsemen and Vee get to be people for a little while with was nice. There is some weirdness going on with Joss, as well as Ewan but Vee is like balm for all of them. We finally learn what happens when Vee completes the circle and now I need he next book. 5 stars!

Darn you Ewan! I’m blaming you for this. Of all the pony boys, you were on baby sitting duty.. but nooo.

This book picks up right where the last one left off.. thank the fly llama babies that Joss is ok!

And can we just say... yay for some softer Xander. Super yay. I love this series. That ending was terribly mean, so now I must ask our dear and talented Lisa to WRITE FASTER DARN IT!!!

Another exciting book in this fantastic series, the story continues from the last book and things are getting more fraught and intense for Vee and her pony boys. With more excitement and danger and twists and turns this book kept me glued to the page and left me wondering what is going to happen next, this is possibly the most thrilling book in the series so far and I need the next book as a matter of urgency

Wow what a great continuation of Vee and the Pony Boys story.

I anxiously awaited this book and I was not disappointed!! And of course the ending left me wanting the next installment now!!!

Lj did not disappoint with Chaos. Make sure you move this to the top of your reading list!!

Chaos picks up right where Guardian left off and is amazing! I've loved everything in the series so far but this was filled with twists I was not expecting. Players are starting to show their hands, including shifty Seth. Everything becomes more intense as pieces start coming together, you're left with more questions and wondering who can really be trusted and what is the end game.
