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.

    Story
    "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.

    "Valdemar in Green Uniforms"

    This story is well written with elements of the classic Heralds of Valdemar.
    Refreshing in it's delivery the performance was well done and I bought the next 5 books the same night I finished the first in the series.

    "Good length and endurance"
    Would you listen to Green Rider again? Why?

    So tired of stories being broken into pieces to produce several books in a series. This first book in the series is strong in story and performance, and not over in a heartbeat.

    "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.
