 CAN YOU OUTRUN DESTINY?

"It's got the four horsemen of the apocalypse: War, Death, Famine, and Conquest. And if that doesn't excite your little heart, what will?

Oh I know what will: it also has demons, military, sass, an evil dragon, fiery horses, and incredibly tall stacks of pancakes."- Cait


“My team - an actor, a drunk, and a sociopath - didn't exactly inspire confidence.” 

Nothing but death can keep eighteen-year-old Gideon Blake from achieving his goal of becoming a U.S. Army Ranger. As it turns out, it does.

While 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?

 

"Riders is a fun, page-turner read. I'd had a couple of laughs with the sarcasm and wittyness of the characters. The banters were also great, giving the extra ride and light for the novel. And thanks for its straightforward writing and narrative.

Totally engaging, with distinct and lovely characters, awesome horses, cool weapons, kickass action, demons, and a little of unreliable narrator, Riders is a fantastic ride!-Neil
