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

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?

Q&A with Jode, aka Conquest, of RIDERS

What’s your favorite thing about being a horseman in RIDERS?
The camaraderie. We irritate each other all day long. It’s great fun.

What’s your least favorite thing?
Having demons after you. I could live without that.

What’s one thing that’s surprised you about being Conquest?
All of it. Particularly my “special ability.” I’d give you details, but I believe that’s better saved for the reading experience.

Give us a little insight into your tastes. What was the last song you listened to? Last thing that made you laugh?
I think the last thing I listened to was a podcast called Distraction Pieces, which happens to have made me laugh. It was a Russell Brand interview. Highly inappropriate. Perfect.
