Path of the Horseman by Amy Braun

The Four Horseman are trapped in the world they desolated. Their only purpose now is to exist amongst the ruins. All of that changes with a small group of survivors... The seal was broken, and Hell was unleashed. Pestilence, Famine, War, and Death rode over the earth, creating a super-virus that turned humans into bloodthirsty monsters, opening a path for demons, decimating nearly all natural life, causing chaos and death throughout the world. Now that their duties have been preformed, the Four Horsemen have disbanded, reduced to human bodies and trapped in the world they destroyed. No longer the Horseman Pestilence, Avery wanders through the waste he created, slaying any undead monsters and demons that cross his path. But when Avery comes across a group of survivors looking for a safe haven, his priorities begin to change. Not that the demons are going to let him stand in the way of their plans. Avery ended the world once, and he refuses to see the demons end it again. But to protect the last of the living, he must seek the help of his brothers, all of whom are content with sitting back and watching the world burn…

Great story!! Title: Path of the Horseman Author: Amy Braun Genre: Fantasy/Apocalyptic Format: Ebok Pages: 224 Rating: 4 Heat: 0 Main Characters: Maddy, Avery Supporting Characters: Simon, Kade, Logan Thoughts: Wow, just wow. This is quite a gory future after the four horseman of the apocalypse have decimated everything. I really enjoyed reading this; it has a little romance and a ton of adventure. Great writing made the story flow with just enough detail to make the world seem real. I liked the relationship between the brothers, almost like they hated each other but still cared since they are family, like I can kill you since you’re my brother but no one else can. With all the twists and turns this story will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very end. I received a free copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.

I was given an ARC in return for an honest review. This dystopian novel begins six months after The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse had been released, and laid waste to all in their path. When Avery, formerly known as Pestilence, and his brothers are not called home, he sets out find them and help the remaining humans survive. Maddy, and her rag tag group, have been battling Plauged zombies, Soulless vampires, and the demons that control them, when Avery comes to their aid. Can the group survive long enough to find their safe haven? Can they put an end to the demonic leader, Ciaran, and his plans? How will they react when they learn Avery is more than human, and had his hand in the destruction of all they knew? Will the growing relationship between Avery and Maddy wither like the parched ground they travel? I loved this novel! It's the second book I've read by this author. Avery, with his dry, sarcastic humor broke into the heavier moments, of the book, and really made running from deadly, turned humans in a wasteland, that was once Las Vegas, enjoyable. I liked how Maddy was a feisty, fighting force that never lost hope. She was a strong character that could handle herself. Lastly, I loved how she slowly brought out Avery's humanity and "human" emotions. Very well written read! - Sarah

Amy Braun, author of Demon’s Daughter (which I loved), nails it again with her stand-alone novel, Path of the Horseman. I like mythology around the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. I like seeing how different people interpret it. The character Death is one of my favorites in the TV show Supernatural. So, I’ve had Path of the Horseman on my list for a while. Of course, it’s one of those books I kick myself for not reading sooner. :) Horseman makes me think of The Walking Dead in set-up (or any number of other zombie apocalypse shows) in that a plague has wiped out most of humanity; only this time, the plague is the work of Pestilence. Pestilence and his brother horsemen have been loosed upon the earth to destroy humanity. Once they have succeeded (mostly), they are stuck on earth in human bodies, alone, purposeless, abandoned by Heaven, and in the dark about what comes next. Each brother–Pestilence, Famine, War, and Death–are dealing with the situation in his own way. I really enjoy how author Amy Braun depicts each brother’s power as it’s being used, particularly the horses. It’s unique, to me at least, and creative. I like the relationships between the brothers as well; each has a distinct personality and each behaves exactly like a brother might–if a bit exaggerated to supernatural levels. I also like the point of view this story takes — when the bad guys win, what’s left for them to do? Much like Oppenheimer, Pestilence, at least, is aghast as what he has wrought. Presently, Horseman is a stand-alone novel, but the ending leaves room for future tales of the four brothers. I don’t think there are any in the works right now, but one can always hope.

Reviewed by Paige Allison for Readers' Favorite Path of the Horseman by Amy Braun is about four brothers, each with a unique gift: one for disease, one for famine, one for war and one for death. They bring about a zombie apocalypse on earth in order to cleanse it for a new life, at least that is what they were told. Once they had done their jobs, they split up, going their separate ways. Avery, the brother who started the disease, is very guilty and angry about what he has done. He desperately wants to make it right, but he can’t as everyone now has the disease, so he goes round killing the Plagued (zombies) and Soulless (people who trade their souls to demons to become vampires). When Avery crosses paths with a Demon, he is told that not all life succumbed to the disease. With a new hope of finding survivors he can protect, Avery tracks down his brothers and any remaining humans left in order to head for the Haven – a place that is said to have food and all the protection you want. But does it exist? And why is it everyone who says they’ve been there is desperate for protection? In a tale full of hardcore battles, demons, zombies and love, Avery and his brothers must find out what is going on before the Demons open the Gate of Hell and kill everybody for good. I absolutely loved this book. I was hooked from the moment I started reading. Avery is such a likeable character with a brilliant, witty personality. This is a story about true family bonds and how far you would go to not only right your mistakes, but also to protect those you love. The vocabulary, detail, and imagination that went into this story is just phenomenal. It’s unlike any other book in its genre and I think Amy Braun has just become one of my favourite authors. She has created a one of a kind masterpiece like no other that I seriously recommend you read if you’re a fantasy fan.
