Publisher's Summary

Karigan G'ladheon is a Green Rider - a seasoned member of the elite messenger corps of King Zachary of Sacoridia. King Zachary sends Karigan and a contingent of Sacoridians beyond the edges of his nation, into the mysterious Blackveil Forest, which has been tainted with dark magic by a twisted immortal spirit named Mornhavon the Black.

At the end of Blackveil, in a magical confrontation against Mornhavon, Karigan is jolted out of Blackveil Forest and wakes in darkness. She's lying on smooth, cold stone, but as she reaches out, she realizes that the stone is not just beneath her, but above and around her as well. She's landed in a sealed stone sarcophagus, some unknown tomb, and the air is becoming thin.

Is this to be her end? If she escapes, where will she find herself? Is she still in the world she remembers, or has the magical explosion transported her somewhere completely different? To find out, she must first win free of her prison - before it becomes her grave. And should she succeed, will she be walking straight into a trap created by Mornhavon himself?

    I can now do my work and listen too. Hearing a professional reader is the best--great way to pass time.

    "Enjoyed--a new look at the Green Rider"

    I thought the book was a great adventure. The last book left us behind the wall in Blackveil and I have to say a hard book to continue a series from. What could you write to top that adventure and keep the story moving forward.
    I really didn't know where this story would take us without letting us down. Well Kristen Britain, you did it. The book took us to newer and higher places I didn't expect to go to at all. Excellent transition story and one that I couldn't but down. The questions left unanswered are a great opening to the next part of Karigan's story and leaving us wanting the next book. Is the information Karrigan brought him going to be helpful? Has our green rider changed from her experiences? Will there be a war?
    Extremely well written and Ellen Archer, your performance I always applaud. Thank you and I can't wait for the next book

    "Was so excited - then disappointed!"
    Any additional comments?

    I think the story was a good story; however, only the very last part of the book actually took us back to where book four left off. I do not feel that it went very well with the other books in the series - almost like runoff series from a popular televison show. I feel that the first part of this book was 24 hours of filler with only the last 4+ hours actually relating to the story I had been waiting for. Kristen Britain is a fabulous writer - I just feel this book really didn't relate very well to the first four books. Ellen Archer is as always, a fantastic narrator!

    "Ms. Britain does it again!"

    I'd been waiting in anticipation for this book and I was not disappointed. I decided to re-read/listen to the first four books and then listen to Mirror Sight vs. reading it for the first time. Ellen Archer did a great job keeping the voices consistent throughout the series and developing new ones.There's nothing like hearing Fastion and Yolanthi (sp) speak in the latter chapters. Ellen did a great job with bringing the described voices to life.

    I was surprised as I started listening to what time frame she had decided to use but it makes sense given Karigan's previous time travel. I was pleasantly surprised that she was able to keep the various story lines going and intertwined.

    I could see how Karigan has matured from her headstrong, naive and clumsy younger self to the considering, and (at times) more level headed young adult she is. I still found myself wanting to shake her to just do what she told but it wouldn't be Karigan if she was so obedient.

    I also liked how Ms. Britain explored how some of the characters weren't simply just bad or good but had many sides to them. The writing and character development has matured and evolved right alongside Karigan :)

    The ending definitely leaves enough unanswered questions for Book 6 but I'm sad to think that it will be a few years before the next book is done. It was great to see some familiar characters in unexpected places and I look forward to Karigan's next challenge. I highly recommend this book to Green Rider fans.

    "And this does what for the story?"
    Any additional comments?

    (Minor spoilers)Alright let's be clear, this book was well written, the story had continuity within itself and the others in the series, but you could entirely skip this book, move on to the next and not miss anything truly important. At the end of the book, Karigan is -exactly- where she left off. She completely forgets the entirety of what happened in this book by the end. If she was able to bring back more extensive information or retain knowledge of everything she'd experienced, brought new characters into the story to stay, -something- I wouldn't feel this way. This book very much is touching on interesting ideas and pushing to keep things fresh... but it feels like there was a lot of build-up with no payoff. It was really frustrating.Ellen Archer as always is a fantastic performer, and I still love the series and will continue to listen to and relisten to it.... but I'm certain this is the odd book out of the series I'll forever skip. For die-hard fans, listen through once, but don't be surprised if you come away annoyed.

    "True fans will love"

    I have been a fan of this series for 10 years when I first took a chance on Green Rider at the book store. It was my favorite book and I still enjoy it! I read some bad reviews about Mirror Sight. To the contrary, I think this one is very well written and thought out. It took a lot of imagination to make this book. If you are a true fan of Green Rider, you will love this book as much as I did.

    "Fantastic"

    I think this is one of the best stories I've ever listen to. The complexities of the characters and the world they live in are just astounding. You should read it if you get the chance.

    "Good book, don't read Amazon bad reviews"
    Any additional comments?

    Don't believe the negative reviews, this is a good addition to the series. It may not forward the world storyline, but is a good advancement of Karigan's personal story. Since she's the main character, that's the more important part.

    Unlike other reviews, I don't plan on listing any spoilers in my review. I'll just say that this story is a bit different from previous books, with a mostly new cast of characters, a few of which i liked well enough to wish they would be in future books.
    Karigan experiences a few major life milestones, and of course, suffers some significant losses. But in her usual competent style, finishes this adventure with knowledge that may help win the coming war, and may save some popular characters from fates worse than death.
    I discovered this series about the time Blackveil came out. At the time i was getting burned out on fantasy, mostly because of authors like George R. R. Martin, Joe Abercrombie, and the like who's dark and bloody fiction send to have taken over the fantasy genre. I enjoy their books, but can only take so much dark fantasy. I came across the Green Rider series and became an instant fan. I listen to them on Audible, and did something I rarely do, I listened to the series a second time immediately. I hope the next book doesn't take too long to come out.

    "Worst in the series."

    Definitely not Kristen Britain's best work. Story is very slow to get anywhere and when it finally does it ends. Main character seems all over with her emotions from previous books. One good note is that the woman doing the audio is pleasant to listen to and does a good job with the character's voices.
