After recovering from an accident that most definitely killed him, Gideon finds himself  with strange new powers and a strange cuff he can’t take off. His death has brought to life his real destiny. He has become War, one of the 4 horsemen of the apocalypse. Over the coming weeks, he and the other horsemen are brought together by an annoyingly secretive girl. Their goal: to help save humanity from an ancient evil that has just awoken.

I got off to a rocky start with this one, and so I didn't think I was going to like this one. But once I got over the hurdle of the first 30 or 40 pages, and really into the essence of the story, it became very engaging and interesting, and from there I flew through it pretty quickly. I really liked that the novel begins in the present day and through an interrogation-style framework, we learn what's transpired.

Even if you know almost nothing about the four horseman or Biblical mythology (like me), you can still read this book and enjoy it.
