Doom Rider

Written by David Gatward

Doom Rider Synopsis

Seth Crow has lived a thousand lives, and in each one he's been murdered before he turns thirteen. And now he's being hunted again. But this time it's different. Enter Lily, who tells him of his fate: Seth is CONQUEST. The first of the four riders of the Apocalypse. And people want him dead, before he can fulfil his destiny. Seth's only hope lies in finding the other riders - Strife, Famine and Death. Together, the fate of the world lies in their hands ... 'Complete adrenalin rush. Dystopian meets horror - grabs you by scruff of neck & does NOT let go.' Lee Weatherly, author of the ANGEL series
