9780099495031: The Fourth Horseman

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 . . .?

Review:

"Such is the force of Thompson's writing that readers find themselves dragged along in her wake . . . powerful stuff, well worth reading" ( TES)

"The science and symbolism move towards a crescendo against a backdrop of conflict between Western imperialism and opposing fundamentalism. Secrecy by government adds an extra sharp and topical edge" (Lesley Agnew The Bookseller)

"Excellent new story from the winner of last year's Whitbread and Guardian prizes" (Becky Stradwick Publishing News)

"A different kind of fantasy . . . Gripping" (Stephanie Merritt Observer)

"It's pacy and powerful - a great read for our perilous times. It reminded me of Alan Garner and Madeleine L'Engle - and certainly an elegant addition to their genre" ( Siobhan Dowd)

Book Description:

A chilling tale about terrorism, the consequences of genetic experimentation and the riders of the apocalypse, from Whitbread Children's Book Award winner Kate Thompson
