No. nothing new or exciting. THe story is slow moving and the characters not very compelling. The nartator was good though.
No. But she was very good.
This is a fun, well written book for adults and young people. It's not geared to children at all but there is no language to overlook and no sex. Now if that sounds a bit boring, don't let it turn you off, because Kristen Britain is a wonderful story teller and Ellen Archer is a fabulous narrator. She does multiple voices, each very different, well acted. This is a first book that has lots of room to grow in the future. The concept of the Green Riders is new and it mixes women and men together so it can be enjoyed by both. It has lots of intrigue, fast paced adventure, and fantasy. I am so glad there are 4 more books to look forward to!
One of the most amazing books I have ever read. The character development is fantastic and the store line is enthralling. Masterful presentation!
I drive for a living and listen to a lot of books. I enjoy the long series of books because I go through them so quickly.
I will read again. Very entertaining. I am putting in on favorites list, right up there with Tolkein.
Love this book. Wondered at first if it was more of a teen novel, but glad I kept reading. The more I read, the harder it was to put it down. I am on the last book in the series to date, and I will miss it.
Awesome job. So smooth, she makes you feel like you are right there in the story.
No, but the suspense of the denied romance is killing me. Hope it it doesn't end like that.
Yes, but only if that person likes Sci-Fi and Fantasy stuff.
The fight scenes at the end.
Although this kind of fantasy is not my usual style, I really enjoyed this story. The narrator was good and the story was interesting.
This book starts off with a runaway girl falling into the role of a Green Rider and the adventure begins from that. Alot of twist and turns with the character as she must struggle to overcome what evil has throw at her.
Most of the storyline is predictable sorry to say and I never really felt the main character in the story as in dire need of dying when in the middle of a enemy ambush. I had a feeling of knowing the script before it was even said. So , I wouldn't recomend it to a friend as I have a lot more patience than most to continue listening to a mondane dialog as alot is said which makes no sense in this story and you know it is for book two benefit to make sense.
I very much enjoyed this book. Although obviously written to the teenage female audience, still, the storyline was pretty good, and I found the magickal principles mentioned within it to be pretty sound, for the most part. I felt that the story dragged a little at first, but the more engrossed I got into it, the more I enjoyed the details that Kristen Britain put into her work, and I found myself sorry that it ended.
I thought Ellen Archer did an excellent job in narrating this book, and I look forward to listening to more of her work. As I enjoyed the book, I could not help but notice all of the different voices she so carefully crafted for each character, and how they so smoothly flowed from her lips.
I loved this book! It got my interest from the very beginning and kept me on the edge of my seat throughout. Ellen Archer did an excellent job bringing each of the characters to life and I'm looking forward to listening to the rest of the series!
Ms. Britain owes royality payments to all the "great" authors who defined, and define fantasy. As I read Ms. Britians i found my self so distracted, thinking "that's from Tolkien" or "Terry Brooks did a much better job of that sceen", that I couldn't let myself get in to the story. I found the toons flat. And the sceens, walking through a hall of the dead is not scary just because dead people are there. The one reason to read the book is the meeting with the Berry sisters early on. Overall I feel ripped off in that I paid a credit for this book.
I found a lot of this book derivative. It amazes me that writers will continue to borrow or imitate famous writers or borrow names, parts of plots, etc. Paying tribute to a favorite fantasy story or author spoils a story for me because it pulls me back into the real world. Not everyone minds this, but I do. HOWEVER - The author is very good at writing about people, relationships, and matters of the heart. That kept me going. I would recommend these books for that reason. I can't give the books more then 3 stars, and they could have earned 4 or 5 had they not been flawed. Once again, I wonder why and editor did not suggest a re-write. The derivative parts could have been re-worked fairly easily and made the books so much better.
