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.

I own this book in paper copy. It's one of my favorites really. The narrator and editing for the audio book are pretty terrible though. The narrator speaks at a very odd, slow pace and places emphasis on words that I wouldn't expect. She also speaks in a bit of a nasal monotone. The timing between sentences in some areas is then extremely short, which I'm guessing is from editing, but combined with the author's slow speech it makes everything very choppy and unpleasant to listen to.
I almost put it down, but was able to push through.
I'll probably buy the next audio book, but I certainly wouldn't suggest this to anyone without a strong warning about the narration.
If you are looking for a series to take a break from detail & complex story, then "Green Rider" series is what you are look for. The story starts with a bang, and the author keep its interesting developing the unique world and characters.Story is linear, characters fun and relatable, and environment has just enough uniqueness to differ from other series. World of the Green Rider is a classic, and I would recommend it anyone.
Lets not forget the narrator, Ellen Archer, takes about 10-15mins to get use to her voice, but she does the book justice; an EXCELLENT job done, kudos!
Didn't grab me heart and soul in a way that I'll remember forever like a few rare finds, but I still thoroughly enjoyed the book. Loved how all the loose ends got tied up, how all the little themes introduced along the way evolved regularly and naturally. I also loved the many similarities with other fantasies that instead of making it run-of-the-mill, simply tied it in with the rest of the genre and made it more imaginable. I'll be reading the sequels.
yes. Listening for me is the best. I do not see well .
Karigan devotions and love for condor
