The Rider is a GFL novella co-written by Scott Sigler and Paul E Cooley. It is the story of The Roughland Ridgebacks captain, Poughkeepsie Pete, and his favorite mount, Old Bess the Tyrannosaurus Rex. They play dinolition, and they are the best team in the game.

The cameos from GFL characters such as John Tweedy and Gredock were a blast. Poughkeepsie Pete really comes to life in this book too. And, there are dinosaurs.
The obvious comparisons are to Mr. Sigler's other works--so many now that he appropriately calls it the expanding collection his Siglerverse.
Mr. Sigler uses now uses voice actors such as Phil Gigante for some of his newer novels, but the GFL collection is and always will be recorded by Scott Sigler himself. The voices he uses for John Tweedy, Gredock, and other characters are as much part of the story as the words.
I listened to this book in a minimal number of sessions. Once the earbuds went in, I wanted to stay with the story until life forced an interruption.
Bravo! Now hurry up and release The Reef and the potentially last book of the GFL series.
Can certainly stand on its own but perfectly compliments the major GFL series. Epic Dino fighting with a great ploy makes for an awesome 9+ hours of listening. Thanks FDO!
scott always does a great job. i have never been disappointed with any of scotts books
even if i dont like the content it is always delivered with the upmost professionalism
Another classic for the gfl. This book gives you an amazing look at a side sport from such an amazingly big and open galaxy. For the full experience you should definitely just to a marathon of Scott's gfl series and listen to this book after you're through the Dino match at the beginning of the All pro. Book 3 😁 this is an amazing super fun really imaginative book. Looking forward too the last book in the gfl so I can binge listen from start to finish! Awesome job Scott!!! And the accents where also entertaining. As an attendee of sigler fest I got a kick out of them 😁😁😁😁😁😁 can't wait for more!
Everything. Pete is the most interesting character. His life and experiences are very unique. And it's guys riding dinosaurs in gladiator combat in the future. Yea that just happened.
Get all the books especially this one.
I am a fan of the g.f.l. universe this story takes place in. However, you can enjoy this story if you have never been exposed to the g.f.l. It is a fun stand alone tale. The action is well done. I hope this is not the last time we hear of Pete or Bess.
another great story in the gfl series and it's awesome to have scott sigler reading again
