[[Devil]]s may seek to corrupt your faith and mind, and [[demon]]s certainly look to twist your body and destroy your home. But the fiends known as [[daemon]]s seek something altogether more fundamental from mortals—they seek life itself. Evil without the distraction of binding law or capricious chaos, they look to the world with hungry eyes for fresh souls to consume.

Horsemen of the Apocalypse continues the Book of the Damned series by taking a detailed look at the daemons—ushers of catastrophe and harbingers of disaster. Personifying the worst ways a person can die, daemons constitute the third arm of major fiendish races, hailing from the nightmare realm of [[Abaddon]], where they are led by four legendary figures—the so-called Horsemen of the Apocalypse.
