Publisher: Tor Teen
Release Date: February 2, 2016



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?

Why I'm Excited:

100 WoW posts, y'all! 
I find the apocalypse fascinating, especially the four horsemen. I'm curious to see how this book plays out. It is either going to be very, very good, or very, very bad. Hopefully it will be very good. Definitely keeping my eyes open for this one. 

What are you waiting for on this Wednesday? Link me up!

  1. Awesome pick. I saw this on another blog today. Who doesn't love a story about Apocalypse and the Four Horsemen trying to save the world instead of destroying it, is a really good twist.

Hello, there! Thanks for taking the time to comment. I read each and every one and will do my best to respond--usually on your blog instead of on mine. I will, however, always answer direct questions. Due to serious time restraints, this blog is now an award free zone, but I appreciate the thought!
