What a curious question. Green Rider. Life or death. If you love Sacor Sacoridia and its king, take it. Take it to him. Running away to Corsa, instead of waiting for her father to collect her at Selium, had held an irresistible air of adventure that she had anticipated.
But real adventure now looked at her with a terrifying visage. The one what? The only one on the road? The only one to take the message? Everything around fell silent in an expectant hush, as if the world held its breath for her decision. Bring it to me. Its curved blade flickered in a patch of sun as she held it out before her. She knelt beside the messenger again. When she did, he placed his hands over hers. It was then she saw his gloves were not dyed crimson, not originally. He coughed, and more blood flecked the corners of his mouth.
He would not allow himself to die until she swore the oath. It will ident Rider, with great speed. If captured, shred it and toss it to the winds. There was no response from the messenger this time though his eyes still stared at her, bright and otherworldly. She gently pried his fingers from her hand and closed his eyes.
Absently she wiped bloody finger marks off her hands onto her trousers and then unclasped the brooch. A curious sensation, not at all unpleasant, as if all her nerves sang in unison, tingled throughout her body. The gold warmth of the sun embraced her, and drove the shadowy chill away.
There was a fluttering like great white wings beating the air, and the sound of silver-shod hooves galloping Moments later, the sensation receded, and she realized the sound was her own excited heartbeat, and the sun had risen sufficiently to widen the patch of light she stood in. Nothing more. She pinned the brooch to her shirt. She then sensed, like a breeze whispering through a hundred aspen trees, invisible lips that seemed to murmur, Welcome, Rider.
This is the rarest of finds: a truly enjoyable read. She has created a richly imagined world where magic is as real as courage , and where a young woman's heroism can change the course of history. Karigan grows tremendously as a person and in the end finds her own place in this world. The characters, including minor ones, are well-developed and the plot is complex enough to get the reader thinking.

I own all of her books and have never been happy setting them down in the middle of a story to take a break. As a result there have been many overnight reading sessions or simply falling asleep while reading.
As I am not a person who reads and drops a good book, I have continually returned to her books to read over and over again. I also love the fact that she does not produce a multitude of short books but provides a longer and more complete portion of the saga in one book. Well, new to me. But it was at time in my life when I was not permitted the luxury of much reading for pure pleasure. As with many Fantasy novels, it involves a journey.
But that is pretty much where the similarity to other fantasy tropes ends. The journey to deliver a simple, but important, message to the King is one filled with wonder and danger. That being said, however, the storyline is not at all childish or tiresome to an adult reading it either. I read this many years ago and devoured the whole series like I was starving for a good fantasy series.
It spoke to me when I was a young lady in my 20's just starting in the world much like Karrigan and had my determination to make it what I wanted it to be. I wished I'd been called by some magic force to become something unique like a Green Rider for the king and to have special abilities would be, yep, a fantasy story.
The Green Rider series is the perfect novel for a year-old to pick up the cause; as time goes on, Karrigan grows into the world she is drawn to, and we all find out a way eventually in this world. Picking up this series some 20 years later, I was worried it did not hold the same awe as it once did, but it does.
I still laughed when she met the Barry sisters and learned that magic is real, and their no escaping the pounding of hoofbeats while running from your destiny. This is a great story. I really had not expected it, because I got it on a one day sale, and my experience with those is that it's meant to move the more mediocre books.
So to find something that is truly good is a really pleasant surprise. I could not put this book down, and stayed up late for several nights to get through it. I even contemplated taking a day off of work to keep reading! Karigan is a girl from a newly wealthy family, studying at a boarding school and having She decides to run away, and upon leaving the town, comes across a dying messenger of the King, one of the fabled Green Riders.
She promises to deliver his message, and he dies in her arms. Spurred on by the urgency of his dying wish and the two black arrows in his back she takes his horse, sword, and brooch which will identify her as a messenger , and begins to ride toward the capitol. At first she tries to take the most direct route, but the horse keeps fighting her. Being a reasonably good rider, she decides that there's a reason for the horses hesitation, and takes the long way around.
Once on the road, several forces try to stop her from delivering her message, but Karigan soon makes as many allies as enemies, and learns to weild the Green Rider magic. Although a lot of the adventures that ensue are caused by magic, or users of magic, there is still a logic to it.
The author treats magic as a natural force with a natural order, so the story flows well. The characters are well developed, and the story is paced well. Overall, this story is a terrific escape. See all reviews. Top reviews from other countries. Absolutely loved this high fantasy story. It has all the typical high fantasy elements such as magic, kingdoms, epic battles, quests, plots and sub plots and a wonderful cast of characters who all helped to make this book so loveable.
And despite the plots and histories and character backgrounds being quite in-depth and complex, the author somehow manages to weave all this information into the storyline in nice bite size chunks that made it easy to take in. This was very clever and made the story even more enjoyable.
His dying words to Karigan are that his message is of life or death importance to the King and he asks her to deliver it for him but warns her of foes who are trying to stop it being delivered. In need of an adventure Karigan decides to deliver the message and the story goes on from there.
She has to face many trials and comes across various other characters along the way, some nice, some not so nice! There are a couple of other sub plots too but those are the main three. More please. As this is a series of five books so far I decided to read them all before posting any sort of a review.
Some series run out of steam with the author just phoning in the next installment and some get better as the storyline develops. This series falls into the latter category. My pace of reading them increased, the final book branching out into various genres of writing, leading to an end where I was wishing I had waited until there had been more written before I had started to read them.
Some complain the series is derivative of, for example, Lord of the Rings, well, yes there is a ring and something like elves but in any genre there will be some overlap, and here I would perhaps say that readers who enjoyed the Magician series by Raymond Feist should enjoy Green Rider, but these are interesting stories with characters you care about even those who make fleeting appearances. Reading other reviews it appears that it is either love or hate the change in direction in Mirror Sight.
I think it better to change and develop rather than plough the same furrow over and over again. So I will definitely be amongst those who look forward to the next book in the series. One person found this helpful. I finished this in a day as the story just raced forwards and I couldn't wait to find out what happened. The next day I went back and started reading it again, more slowly so I could take in the details!
So why not five stars? Well I had to knock a star off as there were just far too many references or similarities to other fantasy novels. If this had been the first ever book I'd read in that genre then this would probably be one of my favourite ever books. Some obvious examples are: A wall that separates the 'good' land from the 'bad' land - Game of Thrones, Garth Nix's Abhorsen trilogy etc.
A creepy crawly man-eating thing that uses webs to catch it's prey - Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter Very tall, very blonde creatures that live in the woods - Lord of the Rings A magic trinket that makes you invisible and makes you see everything as grey and wispy - Lord of the Rings! Two brothers fighting for power, one who gets controlled by an evil necromancer - Abhorsen trilogy My favourite - swords that don't clash but are rather shafts of light that buzz on contact - um, Star Wars?!
And there are lots, lots more. But it still doesn't take away from the fact that it is a great story with some very likeable characters. Also for a YA fantasy I'm guessing after a slightly twee start, the writing doesn't shy away from attempted rape, disemboweling and fairly complicated political situations and plot lines, so adults shouldn't think this is a 'light' fantasy.
I'm about to crack on with the next book in the series, and I hope they're as entertaining. I've never read a fantasy series where the first book isn't my favourite, as sequels tend to become repetitive, so here's hoping these don't follow that pattern and disappoint. Really enjoying this book - its the first one I've bought on this author but I'm really getting into it nicely. Can't wait to get hold of the next in the series. They're probably for teens, but I like them anyway!
Its so nice to find a book with a good storyline that is written so well, and has horses in it! Love the illustration on the cover too, just waiting to discover if one actually turns up in one of the books! The only possible negative I'd have with it, is the paragraphing. Someone needs to look at the Kindle version's paragraphing, especially with the conversation pieces. If you enjoy fantasy fiction then you'll love this book.
It contains everything a vivid imagination can expect and a whole lot more! Loved it! I'm in the process of reading Book 2 and this is proving to be every bit as enthralling. Report abuse.

But in addition to the unnatural dangers of the forest itself, Karigan and her small delegation have been followed by a secret rebel sect--descendants of the original Arcosian invaders, and during a showdown between these two groups, Mornhavon suddenly reappears.
In the magical confrontation that follows, Karigan is jolted out of Blackveil and wakes in a darkness blacker than night. She's lying on smooth, cold stone, but as she reaches out, she realizes that the stone is not just beneath her, but above and around her as well. She's landed in a sealed stone sarcophagus, some unknown tomb, and the air is becoming thin.
Is this to be her end? If she escapes, where will she find herself? Is she still in the world she remembers, or has the magical explosion transported her somewhere completely different? To find out, she must first win free of her prison--before it becomes her grave. And should she succeed, will she be walking straight into a trap created by Mornhavon himself? Each step on her journey northward grows more perilous as she faces attacks from groundmites, encounters with ghosts, and, ultimately, the threat of the necromancer and leader of Second Empire, Grandmother, as they approach the enemy encampment in the Lone Forest.
Meanwhile, King Zachary of Sacoridia has been kidnapped by an ice elemental who is allied with Second Empire. Can Karigan free her king from captivity with just two allies by her side?

An audience of ladies and gentlemen filled the chairs in the large room watching the man intently. A few gentlemen stood along the walls, also watching. Like the circus boss, their clothing was of an unfamiliar cut, and mostly in conservative darks and grays. Arms and necks were not left bare. Most of the men wore beards, some with long drooping mustaches and bushy side whiskers.
The ladies wore their hair tucked beneath hats and bonnets, and, most startling, gauzy veils draped their faces. The man on stage frowned, then jabbed his pointer at the map again. We have wanted nothing but to be exacting in our methods. Karigan wondered. She peered harder at the map. The bright hissing lamps helped her make out the lines and shadings. The landmass in the center of the map, divided into a grid by precise intersecting lines, could very well be Sacor City, but.
Then a gentleman along the wall caught her eye. He stared at her. The gentleman, whose gray-speckled brown hair swept luxuriantly across his brow, twitched his mouth, which wiggled his bushy mustache. He had full side whiskers, too. He touched the shoulder of a younger man beside him. When the second man turned to look, Karigan ducked from the lit doorway, shaking.
She did not know these people, this place. She was not ready to trust anyone until she learned more. She ran-limped away. Did she hear footsteps running after her, or was it her own that echoed against the canyons of brick walls? She turned into another alley, breathing hard, sweat slicking down her sides. She decided to call on her fading ability, and in this way she could survey the city, town, or whatever this place was, without being observed.
But when she touched the winged horse brooch clasped to her greatcoat, she felt no change. She glanced at her hands and down at her body. She remained solid—she had not faded out. She tried again, and nothing. A scent of putrid, decaying matter wafted to her.
She glanced down the alley. She thought she detected movement, but the alley was too shrouded in darkness. Hesitating but a moment, she withdrew her moonstone from her pocket, but it emitted only a weak, dying glow as it had in the sarcophagus. Magic does not work here, Karigan thought. At least not much. The moonstone emitted enough light to sketch out a heap of rubbish at the other end of the alley.
There was more movement. A cat? An oversized rat looking for food scraps? But then the heap stood and the low gleam of the moonstone caught in the whites of its—his—eyes. Karigan gasped and pocketed her moonstone, intending to flee, but when she turned, her escape was blocked by two hulking figures.
She found herself wishing, absurdly, she was back in Blackveil. Lost forever, she suspected, in the deeps of Castle Argenthyne. Even as the two at the open end of the alley rushed her, so did the one with the knife from behind. Karigan did not think, she moved. With her right hand all but useless, she swept the staff at the two forward assailants relying on the strength of her left.
She smashed the closest one in the chin. As he staggered away, she rammed the butt of the staff backward catching the knife-bearing assailant in the gut. He fell back with a grunt of pain. She felt warm splatters across her face, and he reeled away clutching at his bleeding nose. Not bad, Karigan thought, for being one-handed and pretty much one-legged.
She made to retreat from the alley, only to find half a dozen more figures blocking her way. She lives in an adobe house in the high desert of the American Southwest beneath the big sky, and among lizards and hummingbirds and tumbleweeds.

It really feels like Britain is bored with this series, and produced something out of the blue to try and reignite her passion. What we end up with is the fifth book of a long-running high fantasy series attempting to change the genre in one go and force character growth and resolution in ways that feel rushed, awkward, and lacks satisfaction for the reader.
This novel was so frustrating that I leave it out of my series re-reads - I really just can't bring myself to pick it up again as it honestly is a waste of time. Warning:Spoiler ahead - the events of this long book, at the end of it, actually do not matter, and I mean that very literally.
We get a single sentence of necessary information for the plot the other four books have been building, and the character building is essentially negligible because the main character, while changed, is unable to truly understand or comprehend why she's changed, just that she has from these ephemeral impressions she has of a time she cannot remember accurately. In reality, this could have been a novella, or five chapters of the book.
We spent so much time setting up supporting characters and political intrigues for a world that exists so our main character can get laid, and it was entirely unnecessary effort on Britain's part as she could have bought the same effect for much less. I read the first 4 books of the series multiple times years ago, but I read a couple brief reviews of this book when it came out and I was so disraught that it took me years to finally decide to suck it up and read.
Spoilers Karigan travels far to the future, where the bad guy has won and obviously everyone else we know and love in the series is long gone. That was the hardest part of this for me- even though I was sure eventually she would return to the current timeline, I had to read an entire book where all the other characters get hardly any time. And then a whole new cast is introduced, but I just didn't connect with ANY of them.
Maybe because I knew in the end they'd be likely rewritten through time travel change, maybe because I was disoriented by having a whole new setting and feeling derailed from the arching climax the series was building towards. It took me much longer to read this book than it should have because I just wasn't enjoying it, which makes me very sad after how I enjoyed the first 4. On the other hand, it was interesting to see what the continent would look like if the bad guy one, and the way the world developed.
But even then, it felt like much of the book was taken up with Karigan getting to know people who are essentially irrelevant and not enough time was spent on what exactly was going on with the bad guy and his very interesting story. Note- women have taken a big step back in the new society, to the point they have to cover their faces and are seen as completely helpless. Other than as a tool to contrast how tough Karigan is, there was never any explanation on why the emperor made that such a key part of his reign.
It was annoying to see how women were treated but also felt overdone to the point of being illogical and forced. Cade, the new love interest, felt flat and boring to me. Like he was there purely to give Karigan a relationship outside of her torturous King Zachary situation. At first he had potential but once he falls for Karigan he was just blah. Unfortunately he gets a lot of page time. And in the end, it feels like the whole thing didn't even matter. Yeah it gives Karigan clues for how to stave off destruction for her people but all her experiences, the new characters- it all feels pointless.
I don't know why this book was necessary other than a mildy interesting attempt to show what happens if evil triumphs. Other than continued torture of poor Karigan. I really hope the next book recovers well from this one. This one was even darker than the last. Amberhill was nothing unexpected. Karigan is out of character in this book. She lets uncertainty, fear, and the unknown stop her from doing much of anything.
Instead of doing everything she possibly could to learn about how this future came to be or try to get home, she mostly just waits in the house like her "uncle" asks. Yes, her leg was hurt but by the middle of the book, she no longer needs help walking.
Her arm eventually heals and the cast comes off. Yet still, instead of doing what she knew was right and go and save Lhean, she waits for the Professor to decide if it's worth it. Karigan was always headstrong and stubborn. Why was she waiting for someone else?
She knew what the right thing was. She knew Lhean was needed if she ever hoped to get home, yet she waited. She could see he was sick. She knew what happened to the other Elations that were captured. What would she have done if he had died?
It wasn't until the final chapters that she regained her spirit. I have nothing against Cade. He was a likable enough character. Their romance just came out of nowhere. They had had like 5 conversations before they kissed. The only time she showed any interest in him as a man was when he was practicing his sword fighting with his shirt off. And she admitted that he wasn't the first she had checked out. Yet she never ended up kissing them.
And she wasn't just checking him out. She was also observing his form to see how good he is. She knew little about him. He wanted to be a Weapon, he was an archaeologist, he was a decent enough swordsman, he was part of the Opposition. Just how long was she in the future? Long enough for her broken wrist to heal but not by much. Yet it was long enough for her to fall in love and hook up with a new man when she was still in love with King Zachery.
Her relationship with Cade just happened too fast and with no real warning. Had it happened slower, had they spent more time together, I would have been fine with it. But Britain rushed through it. I don't know. The ending was darker than even Blackveil. Nearly everyone she knew in the future was killed because of one spoiled, little, unlikable brat without a single redeeming quality. The Oppositions crushed because of a temper tantrum, the Tombs breached. And does the girl show any guilt or remorse?
I wish she had died. It's not nice but she was awful. She would have been a tyrant on the throne. The short interaction with Westrion was unneeded. You learned nothing new. Even she didn't because she can never remember anything anymore. Much of this book could have been cut out. Nothing happened until the very end. She just paced around her room, petted a cat, complained about having to wear of veil and how women were being oppressed.
Would I skip this book as many have suggested? Not because it's a good book but because of how it affects Karigan in the next one. Losing Cade messes with her. If it wasn't for Cade, this book could be skipped. Karigan doesn't grow any. I think she is lesser for this book actually. During that spell-fueled war, Sacoridia was besieged by the sorcerous armies of the Arcosian Empire, led by Mornhavon the Black.
When Sacoridia finally triumphed, Mornhavon resorted to dark magic that rendered his twisted spirit immortal. Determined to keep the realm safe from this terrifying enemy, multitudes of Sacoridian magicians sacrificed their lives to build the immense D'Yer Wall, imprisoning the dangerous spirit of Mornhavon in Blackveil Forest, which uncontrolled magic had mutated into a perilous and unnatural place.
For over a thousand years, the magic of the D'Yer Wall protected the people of Sacoridia, but as the centuries passed, memory of how the wall had been built was lost as a traumatized nation turned its back on magic. And when a malicious entity cracked the massive wall, there were none left who knew how to repair it. Desperate to regain the knowledge and repair the ever-expanding breach in the wall, agents of the king scoured the kingdom for magical relics and information.
Finally, in a last-ditch attempt to gain time, Karigan, whose Rider brooch enabled her to "fade"--sometimes traversing the layers of time and space--was able to catapult the spirit of Mornhavon into the future. But how far into the future was anyone's guess. Realizing that this might be their only chance to enter Blackveil and examine the tainted peninsula, King Zachary sends Karigan and a contingent of Sacoridians beyond the wall, along with an equal number of Eletians--the immortal race that eons ago lived in what is now Blackveil Forest.
But in addition to the unnatural dangers of the forest itself, Karigan and her small delegation have been followed by a secret rebel sect--descendants of the original Arcosian invaders, and during a showdown between these two groups, Mornhavon suddenly reappears. In the magical confrontation that follows, Karigan is jolted out of Blackveil and wakes in a darkness blacker than night. She's lying on smooth, cold stone, but as she reaches out, she realizes that the stone is not just beneath her, but above and around her as well.
She's landed in a sealed stone sarcophagus, some unknown tomb, and the air is becoming thin. Is this to be her end? If she escapes, where will she find herself? Is she still in the world she remembers, or has the magical explosion transported her somewhere completely different? To find out, she must first win free of her prison--before it becomes her grave.
And should she succeed, will she be walking straight into a trap created by Mornhavon himself? Fantasy Fiction
