Goodreads Description

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?

Why I'm Waiting

Before I even read the description I was immediately drawn in by the cover. I think it's going to be interesting starting off the book with the main character dying and coming back as one of the four horseman, War. I think it's also interesting that it seems like the four horseman are basically recruited to do something good. I'm a little confused by a part of the description but I'm sure that will all be cleared up once I actually read the story.

I've never read anything by Veronica Rossi so when I pick this up, I will not have prejudged this book.series. I've seen quite a few good reviews of this book already which always gets me even more excited about a new release. Like I say in almost every other Waiting on Wednesday, I can't wait to get this in my hands!

Have you heard about Riders? Are you looking forward to this in 2016?
