Overview

In this novel of magical menace to the survival of Humanity, rebellious Spirit Lords plot to seize the celestial throne of The One, unleashing the prophesied Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, the avatars of Death, Famine, Plague and War, who will devastate the world of Men. Ishmael, a hero trapped in a rogue’s body, Joshua, a gardener turned prophet, Dawn, a runaway barbarian princess, Mat, a fierce and furry warrior of the cat-like Div and Shao Lynn, the world’s most renowned mistress of the sword, must discover a way to kill those who cannot die.

Through a magical voyage to the Four Corners of the Earth, where even the very gods help or hinder them, they must succeed or the world will end in fire. But will treachery from within bring them down to defeat?

Can Joshua achieve his secret destiny?
Will Shao Lynn find the absolution she craves?
Can the princess discover true love?
Or will the world perish in searing flames, a sacrifice to a supernatural tyrant’s ambition?

War, Famine, Plague and Death
Neither eat nor drink nor take a breath
Fearsome avatars riding pale horses
Together they gather apocalyptic forces

A chance meeting in a tavern old
A prophecy by a crone foretold
A mysterious stranger with a bag of gold
To entice a mercenary, clever and bold
On a quest to recover a fallen star
From the land of barbarians cold and far

A warrior, wizard and gardener, three
Meet a runaway princess, far out to sea
Four on horses against four who fly
How do you kill those who cannot die?

When you're in a writer's critique group with some of the most talented writers you've ever known, some of those writer's pique your curiosity. M.E. Brines is one of those. He's a highly intelligent, quirky writer who has a vast knowledge of many esoteric things and a steampunk influence. You know for me to think someone's quirky, they are seriously interesting.

In the year that I've known this writer, I've come to find him adorably curmudgeon, quick to have the information necessary, a
Christian Sci-fi And Fantasy Review
Tons of surprises!
A grizzled mercenary, a wizard’s apprentice, and a young prophet walk into a bar…
Sound like a joke? It’s anything but! This is one book that delivers action, thought-provoking dialogue, and a new lens for the Gospel.
Nothing is as it seems on this adventure. M. E. Brines, a prolific writer, takes events, people, and nations from real-life history and turns it all on its head.

Meet the Author

The author, M.E. Brines, spent the Cold War assembling atomic artillery shells and preparing to unleash the Apocalypse (and has a medal to prove it.) But when peace broke out, he turned his fevered, paranoid imagination to other pursuits. He currently spends his spare time scribbling another steampunk romance occult adventure novel, which despite certain rumors absolutely DOES NOT involve time-traveling Nazi vampires!

A member of the British Society for Psychical Research, he is the author of more than two dozen books, e-books, chapbooks and pamphlets on esoteric subjects such as Alien Abduction, Alien Hybrids, UFOs, Conspiracies, Mind Control the Falun Gong, esoteric Nazism, the Knights Templar, astrology, magick, the Bible, the spear of Longinius and Christian discipleship. His work has also appeared in Challenge magazine, Weird Tales, Empirical, The Traveller Chronicle, Midnight Times, The Outer Darkness, Tales of the Talisman, and The Willows magazine.
