The story is good. The reader is great. But...if your going to write a cliff hanger you can not wait 4 years between books. 😃
If you have read my other reviews, you know I have loved this series so far. But I have to say the weird ritual rape scene kind of threw me for a loop. There has been nothing like that so far in the series. It was handled as gracefully as possible but...really?
Other than that, I love the characters and the situations they get into. So this book is a continuation of the greatness of the previous books minus that one weird blemish.
Ellen Archer does her usual excellent job portraying these characters.
I would still recommend the series as Karigan gets thrust into the most amazing circumstances as a member of the Green Riders. I have very much enjoyed reading them so far.
The story drew me in again even though it has been sometime since I read book three. I highly recommend this series. Ellen Archer does a great job narrating and the people come alive just like they did in the printed book.
I read these books and enjoyed the story and can't wait for each addition. When I heard that they were doing an audio book I was a bit Leary. Some are done horribly, but Ellen Archer did a tremendous job. I have enjoyed listening to her and can't wait for the next.
I am constantly amazed by what a great job Ellen Archer does with the different character voices and acting the lines - not just reading them. She makes it so easy to get immersed in the book.
I've been loving the Green Rider series - especially on audiobook. I was really pleased when the 2nd and 3rd books were just a good as the first one. But I was disappointed with this one. I felt like there was too much recap, inner monologue, and talking. I missed the action and pace of the other books. This book spent a lot of time on castle politics. Even though it was clearly thought-through, it was simply a little boring. And maybe I listened to this book too quickly after the last one, but I got impatient by the constant recap of what had happened in the last book. But I would still listen to it and the next book since all in all, I really enjoy all the characters and the storytelling. I'll just chalk this one up to a blip in the series.
I listen to series with a lot of books because I get involved with the characters. I prefer series that are done or near done so I am not stuck waiting for the next book. I listened to all the books in this series in about 1 and a half months. I cannot wait for the next book. Each one gets better and better. If you like this genre of story you will love the book.
This is a wonderful series. It first reminded me of Mercedes Lacky and Robert Jordan but then evolved.
