Reviews

After serving as one of the Kings of Sacoridia's Green Riders, elite messengers who possess magical bonds with their mounts, Karigan G'Ladheon seeks only to return to her home and recover from her recent struggles against the dark magic that threatened her land. Now she receives a second call to return to the Riders and discovers their ranks diminished and their magic dwindling as new dangers threaten the kingdom. The sequel to Britain's Green Rider continues the tale of a young woman called to a life of service and peril. The author's skill at world building and her feel for dramatic storytelling make this first-rate fantasy a good choice for most collections. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

Praise for the Green Rider series: "Green Rider is a wonderfully captivating heroic fantasy adventure.... Kristen Britain's likable heroine and fast-paced plot kept me eagerly turning pages. This is the rarest of finds: a truly enjoyable read." --Terry Goodkind, #1 New York Times-bestselling author of The Sword of Truth series "Kristen Britain is one of the most astonishing fantasy writers working today. 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." ―Tess Gerritsen, author of The Apprentice "Britain keeps the excitement high from beginning to end, balancing epic magical battles with the humor and camaraderie of Karigan and her fellow riders." ―Publishers Weekly "Readers of epic fantasy and series followers will want this finely honed, skillfully crafted tale."―Library Journal "The intermittent sense of foreboding is offset by a healthy dose of old-fashioned adventure--kidnappings, a noble thief, near drowning, divine visitations, ghosts, a visit to an upscale brothel, and some very bad knife throwing--that provides a satisfying temporary conclusion despite this being very much a middle novel with serious nastiness still looming." --Locus "The gifted Ms. Britain writes with ease and grace as she creates a mesmerizing fantasy ambiance and an appealing heroine quite free of normal cliches." --RT Reviews "This captivating fantasy is filled with adventure, action, and heroes. 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. This is a real page-turner." --VOYA "Kristen Britain writes so beautifully that I never want to have to put her books down." ―Fantasy Book Review
