Description

Second in the Green Rider series from the New York Times best-selling author of The High King's Tomb.

Once a simple student, Karigan G'ladheon finds herself in a world of deadly danger and complex magic, compelled by forces she cannot understand, when she becomes a Green Rider: one of the magical messengers of the king. Forced to accept a fate she never would have chosen, she attempts to return to her life as the daughter of a wealthy merchant, but the magic in her blood is too strong. Pursued by the ghost of the legendary First Rider, she rejoins the Green Riders to confront an ancient evil.

These book are great.

Would you listen to First Rider's Call again? Why?

I read these books and enjoyed the story and can't wait for each addition. When I heard that they were doing an audio book I was a bit Leary. Some are done horribly, but Ellen Archer did a tremendous job. I have enjoyed listening to her and can't wait for the next.

Start listening in the 40s

This book was extremely good and I really loved it once he got halfway through the book the first half of this book is just painful to listen to it's so boring. But once it hits halfway it goes back to being the book series I love.

His Sentience Awakens

Excellent narration. Good story, with some flaws. Told in 3rd person, this story begins with a delegation en route to the elves in Eletia, stopping for the night near an ancient cairn in the Northern Border Lands.

I enjoyed the time travel scenes with legendary Lil (the first rider). This book dded a lot of interesting backstory — and thankfully, each entry in the journal was engrossing yet short. I liked seeing the Green Riders embrace some rituals of the past.

As the book progressed, I felt worried for the characters standing directly in the path of Mornhavon. His sentience has awakened. Evil is rising and the restraining wall grows ever weaker. Meanwhile, wild magic is on the loose, messing with the power of the Green Rider brooches.

At times, I disliked the heroine, Karigan. She can be immature, self-oriented, and petulant. I also grew tired of seeing everyone else stand around like lost sheep while K saves the day. That scene with the angry crowd of petitioners waiting to speak to the king...nobody else could handle that? Seriously? I'd like to see the glory shared among the central secondary characters, and a greater sense of esprit de corps.

A fairly engrossing fantasy series so far, but the books are becoming progressively longer. I prefer succinct writing. I like books of 350-550 pages, to avoid repetition and wordiness.

slow start, unsurprising conclusion

One could enjoy this story in a little more brief form if you read a story synopsis and just skipped the first 8 hours of the audio. Karigan's story reminds me of Tamora Pierce's Alanna story, although Alanna seemed more savvy about emotional things. And Pierce's prose is more compact. It's not that Britain is wordy in the way that others like Robin Hobb are; it's just that in places a lot of words go by without apparent plot movement or entertaining witticisms. The relational ending was there to be seen from way back in book 1, so I am going to assume that surprise turns will await us in later books; otherwise I will be disappointed.

Well written and narrated - Very enjoyable

The book is fun, moving and thought provoking. The author weaves philosophical ideas throughout the book in the context of an intriguing story line. I had difficulty in deciding to rate the book as four or five star. I gave it four because I'll probably only listen to it once.

Super Geschichte

Eines meiner liebsten Bücher mit toller und spannender Geschichte. Es ist mal ein interessanter Ansatz, dass die Heldin auch mal realistisch erschöpft. Absolute Empfehlung.
