    Karigan G’ladheon, running away from school, is traveling through a deep forest when a galloping horse pounds up to her, its rider impaled by two black-shafted arrows. With his dying breath, he tells her he is a Green Rider, one of the magical messengers of the King. Before he dies, he makes Karigan swear to deliver the message he’s carrying, and gives her his green coat, with the symbolic brooch of his office.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I loved the beginning of the book. Karigan meets the dying messenger and takes on the job of delivering the message. The plot moves along at a great pace. Then it all gets way too high school for me. I wish I could have seen her character mature. As it is she goes from being willing to embrace the challenge, battles through so much danger and then.....just stops. What a disappointment.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    The end of the book tells you this is just part one. I don't know that I'll go to part 2.


    Have you listened to any of Ellen Archer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The narrator did a good job.


    Could you see Green Rider being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    I sincerely hope not. At least not without somebody editing all the high-school angst.


    Any additional comments?

    Karigan is bold and determined, She's afraid and unsure. She fights off a trained assassin because she's inhabited by a ghost. She's leaving, she's staying. She is a teenager but the savior of her world. She is too many things.
