The long-awaited sequel to Green Rider, First Rider's Call, and The High King's Tomb.

Once a simple student, Karigan G'ladheon finds herself in a world of deadly danger and complex magic, compelled by forces she cannot understand when she becomes a legendary Green Rider-one of the magical messengers of the king. Forced by magic to accept a dangerous fate she would never have chosen, headstrong Karigan has become completely devoted to the king and her fellow Riders.

But now, an insurrection led by dark magicians threatens to break the boundaries of ancient, evil Blackveil Forest-releasing powerful dark magics that have been shut away for a millennium.



I have no idea how many books will be in this series as the 7th book was just dropped. I am re-reading this series and am disheartened to find so many negative reviews for a fantastic series because of cliffhangers, long wait times, and a love triangle that has been hinted at for a while. Their are many series that have this angle. Why are you all having such a hard time with this one? Karigan is a Green Rider, and it is very problematic for the king to choose her; we all know how this and many other fantasy books have to work this angle. The king must not marry for love but political reasons. As for wait times, who cares the author will deliver when the author delivers? I can point out that we are still waiting many years later for the next Game of Thrones. As for a cliffhanger, of course, there is a cliffhanger it not the last book. All those complaints aside, I, for one, thoroughly enjoyed the book. The descriptions of the adventures into blackveil are eye-opening, as well as the clues that are unlocked on how to fix the wall and the events that unfold with the second empire. I am a long-time fan and will continue to read this fantastic well thought out series.
