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 Pierre reminded 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 life.  

T.A. Chase illustrates the down side of being rich; the impact wealth has on a person’s psychological 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 Pierre finally managed to find the healing powers of love in each other. Death is an outstanding emotionally realistic saga that I thoroughly enjoyed. 


Reader Advisory: This book is best read in sequence as part of a series.
