Path of the Horseman - Pulls No Punches - Exceptional “Poor Humanity, crazed with fear, was fleeing in all directions on hearing the thundering pace of the Plague, War, Hunger and Death.” ― Vicente Blasco Ibáñez, The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse“Amazing inventions, colossal failures, and countless wars. We watched it behind the scenes. Watched the monkeys from beyond the glass. We were intrigued, Hell was amused, and Heaven was losing patience.Finally, the monkeys threw too much s^^t on the w ...more

"That's when I knew we were going to have to live with the mess we made."
One word: BADASS. Through and through. Six stars!
AHHH!!!!!! AVERY!!!!!! Ugh, he is one incredible hero. He is now definitely one of my all time favorite male lead characters of all time! From the first page I already knew I was a goner. This was my first time reading about an apocalyptic world and I could envision it as clearly as if I were watching it on screen. Oh, how I wou

I have long been interested in demons, vampires, zombies, and of course the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. I managed to find a well written, entertaining, keep me up all night novel that had all of those components in it! From the first page to the last I was totally wrapped up in the storyline. The characters were believable and written in a way that I cared about what happened to them. I was actually rather happy that the bad guys were bad and the good guys were good it is sometimes tiring w ...more

The Four Horsemen have destroyed the world and find themselves stuck here. Path of the Horseman shows the aftermath from the perspective of one of the Horseman. Such a unique story and one that grabbed me right away. While it is quite gory and not my usual type of reading, I really enjoyed it! The zombies were what I image zombies to be. Avery is my favorite character. Will there be more in this world from Amy Braun. A girl can dream...

My Rating: 4.5 stars

Avery is not a bad protagonist, just that he felt a little Gary Stu in the beginning (super powers, badass fighting skills, sarcastic and attractive) so I wasn't too fond of him at first.

Thankfully he developed into someone with more distinct characteristics of his own, together with the rest of his brothers. Speaking of his brothers, I think Simon's my favorite. He's got flaws that make him seem like a relatable person, Horseman of Famine aside.

I liked Avery's empathy, and well, his heart, esp

I received this book via Story Cartel to give an honest review.
I love stories that deal with the horsemen I think this may have been the second book I have read in total about them. The horsemen are something magical and deadly but it makes them more mysterious.
With this story we are mostly focusing around Pestilence or as he is known now as he is in the body of a human Avery. As we learn the horsemen if they use their powers way too much it can end badly for them.
This horseman plus his three o

"Of the four horseman, Pestilence is the ultimate catalyst.  Sure, it's probably the others that will get you.  Famine starves you and War makes you insane before Death finally tracks you down.  But Pestilence is the reason things go straight to he'll."
The brothers have been set upon earth to destroy humanity. 
Pestilence; (Avery) His plague wiped out most of humanity, the ultimate catalyst
Famine; (Simon) He starves you
War;(Made) Makes you insane
Death;(Logan) Finally tracks you down

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 ...more

This is a really cool idea. The apocalypse from one of the horseman's POV.
Avery is Plague. He came up with a believible diease to start the kickoff for the second coming, but it never starts. Now him and his 3 brothers are in human bodies wondering the empty Earth, or so he thought.
He spends his time killing demons that escaped to Earth and the souless they created.
He decides he's tired of being alone and goes to find his brother and discovers that there are still some humans.
I loved this story.

The Path of The Horseman is an adventurous story that takes place right after the biblical apocalypse. The four horsemen, Avery (Pestilence), Simon (Famine), Kade (War) and Logan (Death) are abandoned by heaven after fulfilling their purposes and are left to dwindle around on Earth in human bodies, fighting demons and scrounging for living supplies. Things change when they run into a band of humans that has somehow survived the apocalypse and that is now the target of one of the toughest demon l ...more

I received a free download of this book from Story Cartel, thank you!
This book was entertaining for me. I really liked the theme that anyone, no matter who they are, can have a change of heart and want to do what's right.
I thought the book was a little too long. Personally, I am not fond of the cuss words and gory descriptions, and cutting those out would have made the book just about the right length for me. That is not a knock against the author, as the book itself was well written. It's just
