Waiting on Wednesday #13: Riders by Veronica Rossi

8:41 AM

Title:  Riders (Riders #1)
Author: Veronica Rossi
Publisher: Tor Teen
Publication 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?

My thoughts:

The excitement I feel for this book just can't be contained. I love Veronica Rossi's dystopian series, Under the Never Sky, like you wouldn't imagine. And based on that synopsis, this one sounds like an awesome fantasy read. What kills me is the fact that it comes out in 2016. I don't think I'll make it, but in the meantime I'll just sit here and stare at that stunning cover. 

What are you guys excited for? Let me know in the comments!

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

  8. I've only read Under the Never Sky, but Rossi's writing is wonderful. The synopsis for this book makes me wish that it were 2016 RIGHT NOW. Plus that cover is gorgeous <3
