Synopsis

Afterworlds: The 13th Horseman by Barry Hutchison

The first hilarious book in Barry's AFTERWORLDS sequence. Drake has just met the Horsemen of the Apocalypse but is that really the end of the world? Pratchett meets Python in this dark comic fantasy with plenty of action, perfect for 11+ boysDrake is surprised to find three horsemen of the apocalypse playing snakes and ladders in his garden shed. He's even more surprised when they insist that he is one of them. They're missing a Horseman, having gone through several Deaths and they think that Drake is the boy for the job. At first he's reluctant to usher in Armageddon but does being in charge of Armageddon have to spell the end of the world?An apocalyptic blend of riotous comedy, heart-stopping action and a richly imagined fantasy adventure.

Reviews

I really enjoyed it - Neil Gaiman Hutchison's work is not only hilarious; it contains a high degree of wit and intelligence. He delights not only in the apparent endless idiocy of humankind, but in the describing of it. This delight is infectious, his ability impressive. - Books for Keeps With this new book Barry is very much staking a claim as one of the top authors writing for the 10+ age group today - Book Zone for Boys
