Description

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.show more

Sheer genius." --"New York Journal of Books" "Powerful, fast-paced, hilarious, heart-wrenching. . . . This story will grab the reader and never let go." --"Romantic Times Magazine" ""Hunger" is not just a good book. It is a great book.

I adore it." --Rachel Caine, author of "The Morganville Vampires""A fantastic and gripping read that never shies from its difficult subject matter. . . . This book is a knockout." --A.S. King, author of "Everybody See the Ants" Praise for" Rage: " ""Rage" is raw and real, a truly dark, honest look at self-harm and the teenage psyche. Kessler left me breathless." --Heather Brewer, author of the New York Times bestselling series, The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod "The elegant mix of dark humor, brilliantly developed characters, and just enough moral threads to lead readers to make their own conclusions is impressive." --"Bulletin" "Raw, visceral, pulling no punches, this story strikes home like a razor blade. It's unforgettable, heart wrenching, and enlightening." --"Realms of Fantasy" Praise for" Loss: "" " "Kessler blends fantasy, history, humor, and hard reality into a gripping tale." --"SLJ""Jackie Morse Kessler has a keen eye for capturing the awkward uncertainty of adolescence, which she wraps quite deliciously in a coating of mystery, fright, and suspense. "Loss" is a treat for readers, a one-of-a-kind, twisty turny carnival ride. . . . I loved this book." --Andrew Smith, authoshow more
