Waiting on Wednesday: Riders by Veronica Rossi

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating.

This week, what's really got my pages in a twist is...

Veronica Rossi
(Riders #1)
Publication Date: February 16, 2016
Hardcover, 384 pages, Tor Teen
Genres: YA, Paranormal

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 horsemen and YA? Sounds like a fantastic read, especially considering Veronica Rossi’s name will be on it. I’m hoping this is kind of like Supernatural mixed with a darker version of Rick Riordan’s books.

What book are you waiting on this Wednesday?


  1. This one is so high on my wishlist! I absolutely loved Under the Never Sky, so I can't wait to see what her next book has in store!

  2. I can't wait for this one either! Under the Never Sky was one of my favorites so I can't wait to finally read more by this author.

    1. I feel like I read UtNS soooo long ago, but it's still a good dystopian series. I'm hoping Riders brings the Rossi reading experience to the next level. :)


I LOVE your comments! And I do read all of them so keep at it! Thanks for visiting!
