For eighteen-year-old Gideon Blake, nothing but death can keep him from achieving his goal of becoming a U.S. Army Ranger. As it turns out, it does.
Recovering from the accident that most definitely killed him, Gideon finds himself with strange new powers and a bizarre cuff he can’t remove. His death has brought to life his real destiny. He has become War, one of the legendary four horsemen of the apocalypse.
Over the coming weeks, he and the other horsemen—Conquest, Famine and Death—are brought together by a beautiful but frustratingly secretive girl to help save humanity from an ancient evil on the emergence.
They fail.
Now—bound, bloodied, and drugged—Gideon is interrogated by the authorities about his role in a battle that has become an international incident. If he stands any chance of saving his friends and the girl he’s fallen for—not to mention all of humankind—he needs to convince the skeptical government officials the world is in imminent danger.
But will anyone believe him?

 

I adored the Under The Never Sky series and I am very excited to read Riders.  I mean, just look at that cover!

What are you waiting on this week?

  1. This sounds SO good!, Kate! And the plot is pretty unusual, too.; I’ve never come across anything like this before. I have yet to read a book by this author, but now that I see this one, I know I have to catch up! GREAT choice! On to Goodreads!

    Thanks for visiting and commenting on my WOW!! : )

  2. That’s a beautiful cover, and I really enjoyed Rossi’s writing style in her Under the Never Sky series. I’m looking forward to this one 🙂

  3. I added this to my wish list because I want to see how I like her as a writer. I just can’t bring myself to read her other books, even though I have the first one in her Never Sky series. This looks damn good though, so I’m excited.
