O Waiting on Wednesday é uma rubrica semanal, da autoria do Breaking the Spine, na qual se posta sobre o lançamento dos livros mais aguardados.

E esta semana no WoW, o primeiro livro da nova série de Veronica Rossi, Riders, uma espécie de retelling d’Os Quatro Cavaleiros do Apocalipse—as personagens bíblicas. Tenho um excerto que requisitei da NetGalley para ler. Lá ver o que vai sair daqui.

Sinopse: 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?

  1. I’ve had my eye on this one for a while! I really love the topic, I don’t think I’ve ever encountered a YA about the 4 horsemen. So ready for this.

    • I know right! a take on the Horsemen sounds really interesting, I’m curious to see the relationship between the boys. I just hope there’s no love triangle.
