Description

Zachary Davriel Hillander, High King of Sacoridia, rues how much he has had to give up to lead his realm, including the freedom to live and love as he chooses. When an embassy from Eletia arrives to propose a joint venture between their realms to seek out an old ally in the north, he is dismayed to learn that the one Sacoridian they have in mind to accompany their guide is the woman he truly loves but cannot have: Green Rider Karigan G'ladheon.

Karigan has only just returned from a dark future where Sacoridia has been conquered and is ruled by a despotic emperor, and she has not recovered in heart or mind. As if that is not enough, the castle ghosts won't leave her alone. Though Zachary is loath to part from her so soon after her return, he knows she is the best choice to undertake the mission to the north.

Each step on their journey places Karigan and her companions closer to enemy territory and danger, for northward lie the forces of Second Empire, Sacoridia's longtime foe, and Grandmother, the necromantic leader of Second Empire, has not been idle. She uses her magic to summon a wild elemental spirit to wreak havoc upon Zachary and his wife, Queen Estora.

At first the Sacoridians succeed in fending off the creature, but it so covets Estora that it can't stay away. It abducts Zachary, assuming his form and his place at Estora's side - but when it is finally ousted, Zachary is still missing. Estora, alone and heavy with twins, must prepare her realm for the coming conflict from the confines of her bedchamber.

Meanwhile, the danger only deepens for Karigan and her companions as they journey north. When she finds herself caught in the midst of a clash between forces, Karigan must rescue and protect her king before she falls into a trap set by Grandmother - a trap that could give Second Empire the power to control the dead and all the demons of the hells.

Magic, danger, and adventure abound for messenger Karigan G'ladheon in the sixth book in Kristen Britain's New York Times best-selling Green Rider epic fantasy series.

Ellen Archer is great, but has a rough start

in way of performance, having listened to the other books in this series read by Ellen, it was jarring for the first few chapters. Her reading felt unnatural at first, probably due to how long it's been since the last book. She seems to be shouting the first few chapters, and the voices for characters mechanical and lifeless. However!!! That is only the first few chapters, and she quickly finds her way. Her captivating voice once more was able to paint a vivid picture of the king, his riders, and his enemies. Don't be discouraged and stop listening, give it time and it'll be just as grand of a reading as the other Green Rider books.

ps. Her singing voice is lovely and makes me smile every time.

As far as the content of the book, it is a much better addition to the series than the last. It felt right at home, and everything felt like it had meaning and a place unlike the last book that basically rendered 90% of itself useless by the last chapter. The story flowed and was significantly better.

Fantastic Characters with a Strong Female Lead

The whole series is brilliant and a great example of a series with a strong female protagonist that wields the sword herself, doesn't need skimpy outfits to garner praise and attraction, and does what needs doing without whining. I love this series and want my daughter to read it someday.

Kristen Britain Slipping..

I have been an extremely ardent fan of this series ever since this first book came out. After all it combines some of my favorite things, fantasy stories and horses. However the last two books have been rather sub par. This one was better than Mirror Sight, I cringe just thinking about that train wreck, Firebrand seems to lack the voice of the old Karigan and the consent references to the other book seem to be a poor nod to a book that never should of happened. I will probably hold off purchasing anymore books from this series.

Threads loosed and retied, mostly

The background strands of the story do come together, for the unraveling of the Empire. All but one, that is, as modern writers are want to do. In general, I found the concluding novel satisfying, but a couple things about the series annoy me. One, the bad characters all seem to speak with voices representing regionalities of our own world, as opposed to the Received English of the heroes. The other, the bad guys possess a monotheistic religion and moral turpitude that some people feel are accurate representations of people who live in our own neighborhoods; unlike, for example, Battlestar Galactica, which cradled monotheism with the Cylons and their on-the-verge-of-humanity and nascent conscience. Britain has reverted to the hackneyed modern religious parody, which for me detracts from the outstanding series. I suppose putting the polytheistic king on a post to be humiliated and pummeled by a monotheistic mob is a creative inversion, sort of.

A Wonderful Escape to a Different World

I loved this novel, cannot wait for the next piece of Karigan's journey which this book has left me wanting more and more, like Nari, needing completion. I'm sorely impatient to wait for the next submersion into the world of the Green Riders, and of Karigan's own journey ahead.

Couldn't stop listening!

The story was addicting and the narrator very impressive. It's so refreshing to read fantasy from a woman's point of view. The characters were well developed and complex. Loved it!

Unglaublich gut und hammer gelesen!

Der 6. Teil der Magischen Reiter Saga. Und ich bin hin und weg, jetzt schon gespannt, wie der nächste Teil weiter geht. Das Englisch ist für mich leicht zu verstehen und ich bin begeistert von der Vielseitigkeit der Sprecherstimme!
Was ich liebe ist, dass ich immer weiß, wer was sagt, ohne nachzudenken, weil für jeden Charakter ein eigener Dialekt oder Stimmtiefe besteht. Und sie singt die Lieder im Buch, das hat mich verzaubert! Klare Empfehlung für alle Karigan-Fans!
