Sinister - 4 stars - A really fun short about a sinister supe and some spooky Halloween magic. I liked it a lot, though it's interesting that the 5 of them seem so much weaker against the supes they are encountering now.

Tricked - 3 stars - I think my problems with this short were less with the story - it was cute - and more with the overall picture. I don't understand where this story slots into the overall timeline, but it's clearly somewhat in the middle of the 7 book arc. I didn't like seeing

**Tricked was also fabulous, but I'm going to focus on Sinister since that was the new read for me.

Sinister was such a fun tease! We get a little bit of everything we want: Joss's jokes, Ewan's leather-bound goodness, Xander's adorable grumpiness, and Heath's grounding presence. Unfortunately, it's just a novella, and I want more :(

For being just a short visit to the world of the horsemen, Sinister is very well-rounded. It doesn't feel rushed, and the story resolves in a very natural way. Noth

Sinister - I love a good Vee and Pony story! I’m so happy Ms. Swallow is continuing the series with holiday stories.
Vee and the guys are in a new house, in a new village. Most of the locals think they are weird and some of the kids like to torment Xander. But in the midst of getting ready for Halloween, a sinister force comes to town. Can Vee and the guys defeat it? While also having time for a little romance?
I received an ARC from the author. This is my honest review.
Tricked - "Tricked" was pub

Two Halloween episodes from the Four Horsemen series world bundled into one book.

It's Halloween again, the time of year that children carve jack-o-lanterns, dress up for trick or treating, and enjoy scary cemeteries and haunted houses. Teens are more into tricks and adults are more into treats but everyone loves Halloween. This year the Horsemen and Vee want to take part in the local festivities, well except for Xander. He's on edge looking for anything suspicious. This includes the loca

I was really excited when the author announced that she was going to be revisiting The Pony Boys. It was an entertaining short story. Again, this author is good at not tackling too much in the length of the story; she deals with one event well, rather than trying to cram in loads. As with the other books in this world, I was really invested in this story. I wanted to slap one of the guys (not going to say who, because spoilers), and I had a visceral hatred for this antagonist. I mean, I really h ...more

Odds are you won't be tricked in this sinister Halloween themed book

Disclaimer: author generously provided me with a free ARC copy of this book. However, all views and opinions are my own.

It's hardly a secret I LOVE the pony boys and Vee. And it was great to get back into their world, see what they're up to and how their lives are now that they no longer have Chaos to fight.
I loved seeing how their group dynamic and individual bonds had developed. And even more: that Lisa hints at a possible thr

Who does not love to read more about Vee and her only guys! It is great to get more insight into how they are all connecting and how their relationships are advancing since they saved the world! Of course Xander is still the favourite and Lisa does not disappoint with him again in this book..or with any of the guys really! I really love these Novellas that Lisa is writing and she is really keeping all our favourite characters moving forward and getting her readers involved in the day to day of t ...more

I am so happy I got to read this little Halloween novella that happens after the first Four Horsemen series ended, and after the Chaos destruction!! It was nice to see that even though they’re still struggling with what happened after Chaos and learning about Vee’s true powers, they’re still a strong team and love Vee, no matter what creepy, witchy, sinister thing that happens! It seems like they have so much more to learn about each other and their powers and where and what they come from. I ca ...more

Another great addition to the four horseman series. Really enjoyed last years hallowen special with the guys but this one trumps it. It’s great to read of life after chaos and how they all try to get a normal life as much as possible. As always lots of action and banter between the guys along with the usual “fun times”. Great read just in time for Halloween 🎃

I really enjoyed this as a little extra treat of the characters with the series over. My only complaint is that the second story in the book takes place during the series so it's a bit confusing to think back so far when your already finished the series. But regardless I still enjoyed this two little short stories to get more of vee and the guys.

I read Tricked last year and loved it. Then this year we get Sinister and a glimpse in to Vee and the guys life after Choas. I loved seeing these characters in a different light. They are still doing their "job" as horsemen but they also have a little fun and some steamy times along the way. Fabulous short reads for the Halloween season.

It was nice getting to see Vee and her guys again. I enjoyed Sinister as well as Tricked which I read last year. Sinister had an interesting storyline and showed a vulnerability we don't usually see, which I think is good. All in all a fun, quick read!

Sinister is really good new short story added to The Four Horsemen. I really liked it alot. It was nice to see different sides to Xander. There was some fun and some seriousness. This is well written story. We see that the Horsemen aren't as strong as they think.

The Pony Boys are back !

I love all the Four Horsemen books (and although these are short) I will take whatever I can get when it comes to these four and Vee. There is never a lack of action and you are always on the edge of your seat. You have to read this whole series !!!
