Waiting on Wednesday: Breath (Riders of the Apocalypse #4) by Jackie Morse Kessler

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases that we're eagerly awaiting. My choice this week relates to the last couple of books I read and reviewed.  I'm so excited that I chose to read those 2 right before the 4th and final book of the series is going to be published.  Just 2 more weeks till I can read it!  As I mentioned in one of the reviews, the author, Jackie Morse Kessler, is going to be in my town, Kansas City, at the beginning of May as part of the Romantic Times Convention.  And I've already signed up to go on Friday and to all the Teen Day stuff on Saturday.  So I hope to get her to sign 2 of my books.  They say you are only allowed to bring 2 things.  But now I'll have 4 since the whole series is out.  :-(  Oh well.  Anyways, here is the synopsis of the final book in the series from Goodreads.com: 

Contrary to popular belief, the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse aren’t just harbingers of doom—they actually keep life in balance. But what happens when their leader and creator, Death, becomes suicidal?

Before the first living thing drew its first gasping breath, he was there. He has watched humanity for millennia. And he has finally decided that humanity is not worth the price he has paid time and again. When Death himself gives up on life, a teenager named Xander Atwood is the world’s only hope. But Xander bears a secret, one that may bring about the end of everything.

This heart-pounding final installment of the Riders of the Apocalypse series looks at the value of life, the strength of love, and how a small voice can change everything . . . forever.


So what do you think?  Sounds pretty interesting doesn't it?  I think so, and can't wait to read it!  What books are you excited about reading this week?

  1. I haven't read any of these books but I do like the idea of the four horseman as characters. Will have to check out the series.

    1. They're all really short, right around 200-250 pages, so good, quick reads! Thanks for commenting.

  2. The Four Horseman of the Apocalypse have become a popular topic in fiction lately - it sounds pretty great really. Great choice!

    1. I hadn't read a whole lot, have mostly seen them on the tv show Supernatural, so really enjoyed this. Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Bummer that you can only get two thing signed. I actually got an early copy of Breath and am so happy to see how things wrapped up. Loved the concept for this series!

    1. Ooooh! So jealous! Can't wait to read it! I understand only 2 things, I'm guessing there will be big lines to wait in, so the less people have, the more we can get signed!
