    "These book are great."
    Would you listen to First Rider's Call again? Why?

    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.

    "Excellent"
    Where does First Rider's Call rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I listened to the first book and as soon as I got done I had to have this one. This is an excellent series! Checked the author's website & book 5 is being written now. Can't wait to hear it!


    What about Ellen Archer’s performance did you like?

    I love the voices she does! Each character has their own sound which is wonderful! Makes for a very enjoyable "read"!!

    "Seat gripping"
    What made the experience of listening to First Rider's Call the most enjoyable?

    I'm not big on fantasy novels but this was a free one, so I thought why not have nothing to lose, Man! it grabs you from the first page and doesn't stop. The narrator is fantastic I have recommend this to my grandson (14) got him hooked too.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of First Rider's Call?

    the Berry sisters, who would know they are very important


    Which character – as performed by Ellen Archer – was your favorite?

    All of the characters she is great added to my favorite


    Any additional comments?

    Read or listen to all of this series you won't be disappointed!

    "A fantastic sequel!"

    Man, I love these books! The characters are compelling, the dialogue is natural and the story is exciting. The action is non-stop and the world is really interesting.

    Kristen Britain is really imaginative! The situations and the characters she creates remind me a little bit of the best in fantasy literature. Her imagination reminds me a little bit of Edgar Rice Burroughs at times. It amazes me what came out of his fevered brow. Only she is a much better writer than he.

    In this book, Karigan is back at home from her previous adventure when she feels a Green Rider call that is so compelling she bolts from the house in nothing but her nightgown--something she'll have difficulty living down.

    The breach in the wall is still there and evil is awakening. Can they repel the arising evil forces? Can they repair the breach?

    One thing I love about this book is that the author does not rely totally on things from the first book to prop up this story. That's really so rare. It could be quite enjoyed without having ever read the first book. But don't deny yourself the pleasure! Reading the first makes this one all the better.

    This adventure also features Karigan and other Green Riders doing things not even hinted at in the first book. I like that. It makes this book less like a simple continuation of the previous story.

    The book is interspersed with diary entries from one of the invaders to this land hundreds of years ago. Through it (along with other devices), we learn some of the history of the country and its people, the source of the wall, and a lot about the diary's author.

    The reader, Ellen Archer, is great once again. I very much enjoy her portrayal of the characters.

    This book met all of my expectations and I have already started the next book in the series. Yum!

    "Even Better than the First!"
    Any additional comments?

    I didn’t think it was possible to write sequel better than the first in this series, I was wrong. This sequel is simply charming. This series is every bit as good and well written as the Lord of the Rings. Just fantastic. Masterful presentation!

    "Britain has a hit!"

    Great work of fiction. I am loving it. There could be a little more strength in the plot. But too much could mess it up. Not bad.

    "Unexpected adventure"

    As an avid audio book "reader" I took a chance on this book and found it very enjoyable. The main character is not the regular old hero and is reluctant, at best, to do the job she was asked to do, it is a fun listen
