The Fourth Horseman of the Apocalypse is at Bondi Beach to claim a life, but lifeguard Patrick Watkins doesn’t make it easy for her. Death, aka Fred, hasn’t met anyone like him before, and there’s a valid reason for that: Patrick is one of a kind, and his vampire brother Ven has an important role to play, too. Pestilence, the First Horseman, plans to bring about the Apocalypse, and Fred can’t fight this battle alone.
The Disease is suitably evil, but his bone throne is unique. Amy Mathieson is an addict too far gone to save herself, but can she save others? Ven and Patrick struggle to adjust to their new situations, but Fred still has a delightful sense of humour.
The resourceful Lexxie Couper has come through with paranormal beasties new to me: namely a nikor and a q’thulu. The clever author has also managed to exploit my unintelligence, making me wonder if the Prophecies within this novel can also be found in religious texts regarding the Apocalypse. I haven’t been this enthused to learn about the Revelations since Madonna’s “Justify My Love (The Beast Within Remix)”!
