In life, Gatian Almasia cared only for his sister and
his secret lover. After his lover died, Gatian had planned to seek solace for
his misery by traveling the world. However, becoming the target of a revenge
killing, Gatian awakens to find he has left the world of the living and must
travel the world as the Pale Rider Death.
Death is the fourth book in The Four Horsemen Series. This is an amazing religious myth
with a modern twist. Death is the one Horseman all mortals feared. Even when
Death was the mortal Gatian, he was considered cold and uncaring. Nevertheless
Death of his long lost mortal lover, the only man Gatian ever loved. Unlike the
other Horsemen, Death makes his home in Paris and enjoys modern technology. Pierre
Fortescue is a self-loathing wealthy jetsetting heroin addict. Released only six
weeks from his second stay at the rehab centre, Pierre goes on a heroin binge when he learns of
the deception committed by his lover. Dying, it is Death who saves Pierre’s
T.A. Chase illustrates the down side of being rich;
the impact wealth has on a person’spsychological health. Gatian and Pierre experienced a lack of trust, due to the
greedy society they dealt with on a regular basis. Life taught both men that
without trust, it is almost impossible to find real love, yet Gatian and
managed to find the healing powers of love in each other. Death is an
outstanding emotionally realistic saga that I thoroughly enjoyed.
