The brothers have been set upon earth to destroy humanity.
Pestilence; (Avery) His plague wiped out most of humanity, the ultimate catalyst
Famine; (Simon) He starves you
War;(Made) Makes you insane
Death;(Logan) Finally tracks you down
"When the seal was broken, and we were set free.... Light seeped over our heads in a warm glow. We continued to stare as a single beautiful voice descended through the light and melted into our ears, It is Time."
I was asked to create a virus that would wipe out every living soul on the planet. Then is was Kade's turn. Kade set everything on fire. Logan didn't do as much, sure he did his job and killed everyone he touched, but there was always a heavy sadness around him when he's did it. Simon snuck I to grocery stores and made the food inedible with my help. He starved the animals and evaporated all the water in the lakes.
The brothers have been set upon the earth to destroy humanity. Once they have succeeded they are stuck on earth in their human form, alone with no purpose, abandoned by Heaven and don't know what comes next. They are each dealing with the aftermath of what has happened and how to deal with it.
All that changes when they come across a small group of survivors looking for a safe haven. Avery's priorities begin to change. But the demons are not going to let him stand in their 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, be must seek the help of his brothers, all of whom are content with sitting back and watching the world end as we know it.
I could not help but think about the show the Supernatural while reading this. It was like the book came to life and all the horror that could be inflicted upon the earth. It was exciting and moving to watch the brothers, even though they were set upon the earth to destroy it, they came to realise how wrong they were and their conscious was weighing heavily on what they have done. So they set out to make things right by helping the survivors.
"The question shouldn't be is there life after death, but is there life before Death. Each man is the architect of his own fate."
Avery ended the world once and he refuses to see the demons end it again and the readers can’t help but get caught up in the suspense and excitement as he sets out to get the help of his brothers in order to protect the last of the living. The story immediately grabs readers attention with its post-apocalyptic setting and the intrigue of the Four Horsemen, it is full of suspense that continuously draws readers deeper into the story with exciting battles between the demons, the last of humanity and the Four Horsemen with additional anticipation building due the animosity between Avery and his brothers especially since they are at odds what with his brothers being content to sit back and watch the world burn and all.
The characters are strong, compelling and certainly attention grabbing in this fast paced and smooth flowing plot full of suspense and excitement with the well written scenes providing lots of great details that paint vivid images of this post-apocalyptic world so much so that I could practically feel Vegas burning. But the story has another side, which has some pretty strong emotional turmoil flowing from the pages as well and believe me when I say that the Four Horsemen put out some very strong emotional vibes which would be just how it I think it would really be. Avery grips readers by the heart with his determination to set things on a better path and his unfamiliar feelings for one of the survivors who of course doesn’t know who he is…at first.
The author created a fascinating post-apocalyptic world, mixing mythology in with some of her own creative twists and like I said some very vivid characters that draw you in and refuse to let go, so I was glued to the pages until the very end.
