Reviews for Loss
A great addition to the series!
Billy's always been the kid that gets picked on by the biggest, stupidest bullies around. All the poor kid wants is to walk home without getting beaten to a pulp...
Then Billy meets Death - literally, not figuratively - and learns he is set to become the White Rider of the Apocalypse. Now, armed with power beyond his comprehension, Billy lashes out at the people who made his life a living hell (pun intended). But things don't go as planned, and the after-affects of Billy's actions spread further than he ever dreamed they would, leaving him only one option: he must find the real White Rider and give up his power.
You guys have no idea how happy I was when I opened up my mailbox and found Loss waiting for me. I loved the first two books in the series - they were amazing - and I knew this third installment would not disappoint.
First off, Billy was a great character. I loved his growth throughout the novel, and that he learned to stand up for himself after his whole ordeal. Although I will admit, I was a little confused in the beginning as to how Billy's story fit in with the theme of Pestilence.
What I also really enjoyed was the adventure-like aspect of the book when Billy tries to track down Pestilence and ends up chasing him around the world. That element definitely made the book more surreal and helped pull me into the story.
I definitely recommend this series to anyone who is a fan of darker paranormal YA and anything to do with angels and demons. My fellow Supernatural lovers will definitely enjoy it! by Stephanie
