Waiting on WednesdayWaiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine in which we spotlight an upcoming book release we're especially looking forward to!
Here's my pick this week:
Riders by Veronica RossiI may have miscalculated my post with the release date here...since it released yesterday. Oops. Anyway: Talk about a unique premise^^ The moment I read the blurb for Riders, I knew I HAD to read it. It almost sounds like a storyline straight out of Supernatural, and you all know how much I adore that show! Seriously though: the main character dies and is reborn as one of the Four Horseman of the Apocalypse. Whaaa?? And there's romance and a quest to save the world...that fails. Holy hell, I need this book in my life - luckily, we don't have to wait any longer^^
Publication Date: February 16th 2016 by Tor Teen
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.
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?
Are you as impressed with the premise for Riders as I am?
