Publisher's Summary

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.

Pursued by unknown assassins, following a path only her horse seems to know, Karigan becomes a legendary Green Rider—for when given to the right person, a Rider’s brooch awakens the magic inside.

    "Both good and bad."

    I found a lot of this book derivative. It amazes me that writers will continue to borrow or imitate famous writers or borrow names, parts of plots, etc. Paying tribute to a favorite fantasy story or author spoils a story for me because it pulls me back into the real world. Not everyone minds this, but I do. HOWEVER - The author is very good at writing about people, relationships, and matters of the heart. That kept me going. I would recommend these books for that reason. I can't give the books more then 3 stars, and they could have earned 4 or 5 had they not been flawed. Once again, I wonder why and editor did not suggest a re-write. The derivative parts could have been re-worked fairly easily and made the books so much better.

    "A Great Read for Girls Who Like to Kick Butt"

    This is the first book in a fantasy series that is centered around a young girl coming of age. She is forced through some extreme situations that change her life and guide her destiny. She didn't go looking for the adventure and danger that threatened and nearly took her life, but it found her. This is such a great listen that you are not going to what to stop. You are going to have to find out if she gets through each danger alright. If she does make it through, will she be harmed? Will her most trusted companion make it through or offer the greatest sacrifice to save her? Will she embrace her destiny and complete her mission or was it all a big mistake and a waste of time that costs her everything? You'll have to listen to find out. It's such a great listen that you can not be disappointed.

    "As good as I remembered"

    Read this book years ago, was as happy to see it come out on audio. It was as good as I remembered it. The Ellen Archer does an excellent job of bringing the characters to life, just as I had imagined. Can't wait to listen to the rest of the series.

    "GR8 narrator 4 ok story but will get next book!"

    Liked the narrator a lot. Story started out well, good characters and plot developments, then it just dragged along predictably. Hoping next book in series steps it up a couple of notches.

    "A good solid listen"
    Any additional comments?

    I think, if I thought hard enough, I could riddle this book with flaws and holes, but....I truly just enjoyed listening to the story. I think it was worth a credit, and I would give it a solid recommendation.

    "My Favorite Series of All Time"

    I first picked up this book when I was 15. And I could not out it down. I've owned the print edition for a very long time. When I got audible on my phone I got a book I knew I'd like. Even though I know the story by heart, the reader brought dialogue and pronunciations to life for me making it more real. Trying other books here on this site I haven't come across a better reader than Ellen Archer. She swept me away.

    This book alone is filled with a strong willed young woman who gets swept up in magic and intrigue. I found it odd at first that a messenger service would be the profession that holds mystic abilities, but Ms. Britain has a surprise in store for you. This book is a beautiful fantasy realm that I cannot get enough of. Strong female lead, magic, politics, horses!, and a pinch of romance. A beautiful start to a fantastic series.

    "Great story - wonderful narration"

    Surprised by a unique story line and wonderful narration! I've listed to hundreds of stories and count the Name of the Wind, The Wheel of Time, and The Game of Thrones as some of my favorites. The story is more simple then a epic fantasy but definitely interesting enough to capture and hold your attention. The narrator starts out w/ a uninteresting voice but captures each person with such personality it's almost uncanny. She has a unique gift that is rare and is defiantly one worth following. I've purchased books 2 and 3 and will definitely buy the rest. I'm excited to find a new series to follow!
