Review 31: Path of the Horseman

Path of the Horseman. Amy Braun. 2015. [Marchh] CreateSpace. 344. [Source:BookReviewBuzz]

First sentence:  “I couldn’t believe how long it took for them to see me.”

Amazon Book Blurb: The Four Horseman are trapped in the world they desolated. Their only purpose now is to exist amongst the ruins. All of that changes with a small group of survivors... The seal was broken, and Hell was unleashed. Pestilence, Famine, War, and Death rode over the earth, creating a super-virus that turned humans into bloodthirsty monsters, opening a path for demons, decimating nearly all natural life, causing chaos and death throughout the world. Now that their duties have been preformed, the Four Horsemen have disbanded, reduced to human bodies and trapped in the world they destroyed. No longer the Horseman Pestilence, Avery wanders through the waste he created, slaying any undead monsters and demons that cross his path. But when Avery comes across a group of survivors looking for a safe haven, his priorities begin to change. Not that the demons are going to let him stand in the way of their plans. Avery ended the world once, and he refuses to see the demons end it again. But to protect the last of the living, he must seek the help of his brothers, all of whom are content with sitting back and watching the world burn…

My thoughts:  I have long been interested in demons, vampires, zombies, and of course the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.  I managed to find a well written, entertaining, keep me up all night novel that had all of those components in it!  From the first page to the last I was totally wrapped up in the storyline.  The characters were believable and written in a way that I cared about what happened to them.  I was actually rather happy that the bad guys were bad and the good guys were good it is sometimes tiring when you have to try to figure out if someone is really bad or really good.  This was fairly cut and dry, from the start a fact that I appreciated immensely.  I am hoping that maybe we will get to see more of this story although as of now it is a standalone novel.  The pacing was excellent it never stayed in one place to long, the tone was right for the setting and purpose. 

Rating 8.5/10

Recommendation:  If the apocalypse, vampires, zombies, and demons interest you then check this book out!
