Magic, danger, and adventure abound for messenger Karigan G'ladheon in author Kristen Britain's New York Times-bestselling Green Rider fantasy series • "First-rate fantasy." —Library Journal 

Karigan G’ladheon is a Green Rider—a seasoned member of the elite messenger corps of King Zachary of Sacoridia. King Zachary sends Karigan and a contingent of Sacoridians beyond the edges of his nation, into the mysterious Blackveil Forest, which has been tainted with dark magic by a twisted immortal spirit named Mornhavon the Black.

In a magical confrontation against Mornhavon, Karigan is jolted out of Blackveil Forest and wakes in darkness. 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?


I am a massive fan of this series. I started it back in high school in 1997. I fell in love with the author and the world of Karigan and her magical abilities with being a Green Rider. I have devoured each novel since and loved where the story goes. When this book came out, I bought it right away, but then it sat on my shelf as the reviews poured in that the story was not going where readers wanted, that the author was wasting our time with this monster of a book. So I debated and debated on reading it. Finally, as 2014 draws to a close, I decided it’s time lets see what all the fuss is about.

All that being said, I loved it; once again, there were all the elements of time travel and that we get this glimpse into what can happen in the future to Sacordia. I also was a tad bit sad that Karigan fell so deeply for this man from the end but then was thrown back to her time without him, and it seems as time goes on, she loses all her memories from that time but still holds on to her love for this man. The story did take a turn from what we have seen in the past books, but I think the change was good and will lead to a more robust continuation in future books.
