    Gave this series a try and was very surprised at the excellent narration and story line. I like the mix of the modern age with the Avalon mythology. For a book that was written in the 70's the story still seems current and not antiquated. I would like to finish the whole series but do not like that these short 5 hour books are sold separately instead of being grouped together. It will definitely be expensive to get to the end and I'm sure Audible is counting on that. Great book, lame deal!

    Story

    I am between many novels (Stormlight Archive, Green Rider, Sorcery Ascendant) waiting for their next book to be release and was looking for something similar that had swords and magic, strong moral characters, set in the time of kings and queens and that would hold me for a while. I am glad to say that I was not dissappointed. This book has been a great start to the many books to follow and I can't wait to jump into the next.

    Side note: I love that healing salve and potion. Its a great part of the story that has allowed our characters to be in the middle of the fray, sustain injuries they learn lessons from, but not end up dead and us as readers bitter.

    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.

    This story was a great adventure. The narrator was excellent and made all the voices unique and very easy to follow along with. Strong female protagonist, a lot of action, a good mix of magic, great cast of characters. If you liked The Hunger Games, Green, and The Percy Jackson Series then you will definitely enjoy this series. Suitable for mid teens and older for violence and suggestive content.
