When reading this book I had to keep reminding myself that it is aimed at a much younger audience than myself, so whilst I didn't find it funny at all, I think young boys probably would and I think they'd relate to the character of Drake a lot.

I did like the story and how the horsemen were all the personification of their role, I think this book gave a new side to The horsemen of the Apocalypse myth in general and had an action packed ending with lots of fun twists.

The writing was really great and full of rich descriptions to fuel the imagination. To be honest I couldn't really find any faults with the book, I just didn't love it, I guess it wasn't for me.

I would recommend it for getting young boys into reading though, I know I'll be saving it for my son, it has fun characters, a great story and it's easy reading. I wouldn't be put off reading more by the authhor in the future if he released something aimed at an older audience.
