|Magic, danger, and adventure abound for messenger Karigan G'ladheon in the second book in Kristen Britain's New York Times -bestselling Green Rider fantasy series * "F irst-rate fantasy." --Library Journal Karigan G'ladheon was once a Green Rider, one of the king of Sacoridia's elite magical messengers. In the messenger service, she was caught up in a world of deadly danger, and though she defeated the rogue Eletian who cracked the magical D'Yer Wall--which had protected Sacoridia for a thousand years from the dark influence of Blackveil Forest, and Mornhavon the Black's evil spirit imprisoned within it--she had nonetheless been tainted by his wild magic. Exhausted in body and spirit, and determined to take control of her own destiny, Karigan returned to her home in Corsa. But even Karigan's stubborn determination is no match for the Rider's call. Ghostly hoofbeats echo in the deep regions of her mind. When she awakes to find herself on horseback, halfway to Sacor City in her nightgown, she finally gives in. Karigan returns to the court, only to find the Green Riders weakened and diminished. Rider magic has become unreliable, and she herself has ghostly visions of Lil Ambriodhe, First Rider, and founder of the Green Rider corps. But why is the First Rider appearing to Karigan? And will Karigan be able to seek the help of a woman who has been dead for a thousand years?|

|Reviews||" I liked this book even better than the first ...Britain masterfully manipulates the drama and emotions of her characters." -Fantastical Reads "This book does a beautiful job of telling an old story in a new way-the epic battle between Good and Evil-which is what high fantasy is all about... Britain creates a world half-familiar, half-mysterious, and wholly compelling. " -Infinity Plus "The magic, politics and fascinating characters make this an engrossing and absorbing read. " -The Demon Librarian "Britain has continued writing a series that is at once magical and realistic, simple and intelligent... I was deeply impressed with the duality of the story being told, the manner in which history was conveyed, and the way in which we got to see it happen." -Fantasy Book Review , 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 clichés." -- 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|
