Contrary to popular belief, the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse aren’t just harbingers of doom—they actually keep life in balance. But what happens when their leader and creator, Death, becomes suicidal? Before the first living thing drew its first gasping breath, he was there. He has watched humanity for millennia. And he has finally decided that humanity is not worth the price he has paid time and again. When Death himself gives up on life, a teenager named Xander Atwood is the world’s only hope. But Xander bears a secret, one that may bring about the end of everything. This heart-pounding final installment of the Riders of the Apocalypse series looks at the value of life, the strength of love, and how a small voice can change everything . . . forever.
This particular book has been on my wishlist for what I think has been a couple of years, at least since the second book in the series. Death finally has his book and while I knew it would be the last one and I’ve been looking forward to it so much, I’m a little sad that it’s coming. The blurb, title and cover were just recently revealed and I’m so impressed with them. The first three covers were very similar to each other, sort of plain with just the weapon of the Rider and the book’s single title standing out (Hunger, Rage and Loss). I’m glad that Death gets something a little more glamorous – he does look like Kurt Cobain, after all (seriously, he does!).
I am so going to be sniffling my way through this book. I’m going to have my Kleenex box on hand before I even pick it up.
