The Lovereading4Kids comment
Richly plotted and thrilling from start to finish, The Fourth Horseman weaves together a contemporary story which includes the threat of terrorism, the responsibilities of scientific research and cricket with the with an ancient curse from the Bible that predicts the end of the world. How do they all link together?
Laura unravels the connections after her dramatic arrest blows the lid on her father’s secret enterprise.
The Fourth Horseman by Kate Thompson
The first time Laurie and her dad see the white rider, watching them from the deep, cool shadows of the trees, he is alone. Laurie is convinced that his appearance has a meaning that somehow he is trying to tell them something - something her dad needs to pay attention to. Is the rider somehow linked to the genetic research into squirrels that Laurie is helping her dad with in the lab? When a second rider with a bloody sword appears alongside the first, and then a third and a fourth, Laurie knows she must try to understand who they are and what they represent. With the help of her brother and his best friend, she discovers what the riders mean, but will it be too late to stop the inevitable chain of events that has been set in motion?
