A strong continuation of the premise set forth in Hunger, introducing the incarnations of War and Pestilence. Death disguised as Kurt Cobain continues here, as well, with some interesting romantic possibilities raised between certain characters. It's easy to imagine where the series goes from here -- two books for each of the two remaining Horsemen. But since we've had two books now to explore the world created by author Kessler, my hope is that a larger story might appear -- one that goes beyond embodying contemporary teen issues as Horsemen, and that explores how these young women and men work while facing larger internal and external threats, or deal with particulars of their assignments. It's to Kessler's credit that she has invented such an original cast. Hopefully she'll unearth a more expansive storyline to match.
