Second in the Green Rider series from the New York Times best-selling author of The High King's Tomb.
Once a simple student, Karigan G'ladheon finds herself in a world of deadly danger and complex magic, compelled by forces she cannot understand, when she becomes a Green Rider: one of the magical messengers of the king. Forced to accept a fate she never would have chosen, she attempts to return to her life as the daughter of a wealthy merchant, but the magic in her blood is too strong. Pursued by the ghost of the legendary First Rider, she rejoins the Green Riders to confront an ancient evil.

sooo happy to find another series of books to enjoy. wonderfully written, and narrated. everything you want, mystery, intrigue, suspense, and a great storyline... just right up my alley.
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 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!
I love the voices she does! Each character has their own sound which is wonderful! Makes for a very enjoyable "read"!!
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.
the Berry sisters, who would know they are very important
All of the characters she is great added to my favorite
Read or listen to all of this series you won't be disappointed!
Book 2 in the series and still going strong. This is a great listen. More history of the characters is revealed and there are some surprising turns. You will not be disappointed.
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!
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!
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
Really enjoyed the start of this series. It keeps you interested from beginning to end. Pure fantasy.
