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.

    "Got completely sucked in!"

    I thought it would be worth spending a credit, then I ended up binge listening to the whole series! Can't wait for the next book to come out.

    Story
    "Green Rider a tale of intrigue and excitement"
    Where does Green Rider rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Green Rider is a well loved tale and ranks somewhere near the top for me. This is the first in the series of I think 5 books and is a wonderful introduction to the characters and world Kristen Britain has built.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Green Rider?

    The moment where Keri meets Frian and begins her adventure, or maybe the "Berry" sisters, or the Wild Ride ... Hmmmm .. maybe the Wild Ride! There are lots of wonderful moments to keep the reader/listener rapt up in the tale.


    What about Ellen Archer’s performance did you like?

    Ellen Archer is a talented story teller and does a fine job of telling this tale. She is not as smooth as Eloise Oxer but more crisp in her manner of speaking. I think readers will find this quite an enjoyable listening experience with Ellen Archer's narration style.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I'm a greedy listener and have a hard time walking away from a good tale and this is most certainly a wonderful tale indeed! So suffice it to say that yes indeed I wanted to listen to it in just one sitting! :)


    Any additional comments?

    Kristen Britain and Ellen Archer do make a winning combination and Green Rider is truly a story that will keep the audience captivated.

    Story
    "Green things need to grow"

    I Loved The Reader- she was fantastic! I liked the story also, didn't love it, but I liked it.

    The language was very clean- language ratings are important to me and this is one the kids could listen to.

    The story moves along quickly and has a good pace, lots of adventure. The main character is likeable, she does all the right things, but leaves wanting her to do it with a little more style and you are constantly waiting for her to make up her mind.

    The author does a good job of making sure everything is tied up at the end with just enough intrigue to make you wonder how the second book will start and then evolve. I believe I will get the next book in the series just to listen to the reader- she really is that good.

    I drive for a living and listen to a lot of books. I enjoy the long series of books because I go through them so quickly.

    Story
    "so glad I came across this book"
    Would you listen to Green Rider again? Why?

    I will read again. Very entertaining. I am putting in on favorites list, right up there with Tolkein.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Love this book. Wondered at first if it was more of a teen novel, but glad I kept reading. The more I read, the harder it was to put it down. I am on the last book in the series to date, and I will miss it.


    What about Ellen Archer’s performance did you like?

    Awesome job. So smooth, she makes you feel like you are right there in the story.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No, but the suspense of the denied romance is killing me. Hope it it doesn't end like that.

    Story
    "A Pony Express magical adventure"
    What made the experience of listening to Green Rider the most enjoyable?

    This book starts off with a runaway girl falling into the role of a Green Rider and the adventure begins from that. Alot of twist and turns with the character as she must struggle to overcome what evil has throw at her.


    Would you recommend Green Rider to your friends? Why or why not?

    Most of the storyline is predictable sorry to say and I never really felt the main character in the story as in dire need of dying when in the middle of a enemy ambush. I had a feeling of knowing the script before it was even said. So , I wouldn't recomend it to a friend as I have a lot more patience than most to continue listening to a mondane dialog as alot is said which makes no sense in this story and you know it is for book two benefit to make sense.
