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.

    Story
    "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.

    "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.

    "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!

    Story
    "Love them."

    I love the Green Rider Series. I have a hard time putting them down, especially if it is the newest book because I want to know what is going to happen next.

    The way the characters interact with each other and just the way the stories are put together keep me waiting for the next book to come out.

    When I was introduced to the series, the third book had just come out within the year or two that it was written, I think. Ever since then I have been waiting to find out what is going to happen next.

    I don't want to go into too much detail because this review will end up being even longer than it will be, but if you like horses, magic, Kings/Queens, and spunky messengers who might tell off their King and still live, you might enjoy this series.

    "Read it the first time and listened the second time. Love this story!"

    A fast paced book that draws you in completely. I always enjoy books with strong female lead characters. Maybe I see one of my daughters taking on the world, who knows ;-)

    "this was a nice little story"

    I liked this story. I don't like the narration as much. when the narrator tries to make too many voices it starts to sound very harsh to my ears. and makes me not want to hear some of those voices. for me making all those different voices doesn't make it better. I May read the next book in the series but do not look forward to the same narration
