by Jackie Morse Kessler
Riders of the Apocalypse, book three
This is such a great series. The author's idea is just amazing. They are short reads, but they are packed with SO much punch! Each book not only tackles a teen becoming a Rider...yes one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse(!!!), but also some kind of issue that teens can face.
This book did a GREAT job blending the concept of Pestilence (disease, ick!) and bullying. Kessler managed to write a phenomenal story about a boy who finally fights back for himself and stops a bully from destroying the world. We also got some more great hints about what's coming for Death...one of the coolest characters, ever!... and the Horsemen in the final book.
Though short, I get so much satisfaction reading each book in this series, and I cannot wait for the big finale!
