Be First Book Club: Riders by Veronica Rossi

   This months Be First Book Club took place last Thursday, February 17th, where we discussed Riders by Veronica Rossi.  
   After discussing the book for a little while, our little group all came to the same conclusion, Riders
was not what we were expecting. And not in a good way. Like I discussed in my review, the members all felt relatively the same way. The book was just too sexist for us.

   It was one of those books that you want to forget as soon a you started, and so we went onto discussing the next book that we were going to read.

   Next month we will be reading Wink Poppy Midnight by April Genevieve Tucholke. We will be meeting on the 17th of March, so once again expect a post a few days after that!

Riders by Veronica Rossi

Description from GoodReads:

   Nothing but death can keep eighteen-year-old Gideon Blake from achieving his goal of becoming a U.S. Army Ranger. As it turns out, it does.

   While recovering from the accident that most definitely killed him, Gideon finds himself with strange new powers and a bizarre cuff he can’t remove. His death has brought to life his real destiny. He has become War, one of the legendary four horsemen of the apocalypse.

   Over the coming weeks, he and the other horsemen—Conquest, Famine, and Death—are brought together by a beautiful but frustratingly secretive girl to help save humanity from an ancient evil on the emergence.

   They fail.

   Now—bound, bloodied, and drugged—Gideon is interrogated by the authorities about his role in a battle that has become an international incident. If he stands any chance of saving his friends and the girl he’s fallen for—not to mention all of humankind—he needs to convince the skeptical government officials the world is in imminent danger.

   But will anyone believe him?
