Green Rider
Green Rider | Kristen Britain

Karigan G'ladheon always seemed to be getting into a fight, and today was no exception. But as she trudged through the forest, using her long walk home to contemplate her depressing future - and the expulsion it was bound to hold - a horse burst through the woodland and charged straight for her. The rider was slumped over his mount's neck with two arrows embedded in his back. Wherever his horse was taking him, he would be dead before they got there. There's nothing Karigan can do, as the young man lies dying on the road. He had sworn to carry out his mission as a Green Rider - one of the legendary messengers of the king - and he has a life or death message that must reach King Zachary. Karigan may be unable to save him, but she can deliver his message. He makes her swear to it, to keep it secret and, with his last breath, he warns her to 'beware the shadow man ...' Pursued by an unknown assassin, following a path only her horse seems to know, and accompanied by the silent specter of the original messenger, Karigan is going to become a legendary Green Rider herself. Caught up in a world of deadly danger and complex magic, compelled by forces she cannot understand, her simple promise to deliver a letter is about to become a race against time ... and a race for her life ...

I‘m rereading this series again BECAUSE THE SEVENTH BOOK COMES OUT THIS MONTH. I started this in middle school, y‘all (for reference, I‘m almost 30). It has been a whole-ass commitment to follow along, and you know I have a rule about not starting a series unless all the books are out (probably because of this one)! I‘ve reread it many times because it‘s so comforting and familiar, much like HP. Read it. 10/10

1. I‘m partial to Definitely Maybe, because it‘s what spurred me to start collecting different editions of Pride and Prejudice.

2. Yes, all the Green Rider series books; this need to be made into a movie or TV show!

Thanks @Eggs for the tag!

CrowCAH @robinb it‘s amazing! Believable characters, an unique created world, and a delayed romance thwarted by duty. It‘s just heart wrenching! 🥰 4mo

#WindsOfMarch #TreeOnCover

Decided to showcase this book one of the Green Rider series, because I started listening to the second book today. A believable fantasy series which pulls you in and stays long in your memory.

It sure is windy in Michigan today! #MittenLitten

Nutmegnc I love this series. Book 8 will be out soon!!! 9mo
MsMelissa I absolutely loved this series up until Mirror Sight. One of my best loved series became one I‘m most disappointed in because of that book 😥 Will wait until the rest of the books are out before deciding if it‘s worth picking back up. Is book 8 going to be the last one @Nutmegnc ? 9mo
Eggs Beautiful 🌳🌲🌳 9mo

Nutmegnc @MsMelissa I agree that Mirrorsight wasn‘t my fav. Most of the second empire stuff I found boring but loved the rest. And it seems like 8 may not be the last. Is that a deal breaker? 9mo
CrowCAH @Nutmegnc I know, super exciting!!! 😊 I‘m behind, but this way I can enjoy the series at my own pace. 9mo
CrowCAH @MsMelissa @Nutmegnc I guess not all books can be up to par. But both of you had similar reactions to it, so I‘ll see what my opinion will be when I get to it. 9mo
TheSpineView This is a great series! 💚🐎 9mo
mabell So windy here too!! 9mo
CrowCAH @TheSpineView I love it too!!! 🥰 9mo
CrowCAH @mabell it‘s bringing in tomorrow‘s rain. ☔️ 9mo
MsMelissa @Nutmegnc Not a deal breaker, I just don‘t really want to wait another five-ten years for the series to finish. I‘ll read reviews of the final books to determine if I‘ll pick it back up again. 9mo
MsMelissa @CrowCAH Who knows, what I hated about that particular book you might enjoy 😊 9mo

I can‘t tell you why exactly I inevitably return to the Green Rider series. I‘ve reread this series more times than I can count and I never get tired of Karigan‘s adventures. Maybe it‘s because it was the first adult fantasy novel I devoured on one of my family‘s road trips. Who knows? But I love even listening to Ellen Archer read it to me. #greenrider #audiobooks #kristenbritain

Pictured are the first two books from the Green Rider series. As an equestrian this should be no surprise that this series is in my top 20. Even if you took away the horses it is still a great series.

As Terry Goodkind says, “a truly enjoyable read.”
This was a great adventure, great nostalgia (published in the 90s - and it reads like a comfy blanket), great relationship and friendship and good versus evil... And, overall, just a satisfying read.

I read the audiobook in March when the hard copy was waitlisted at the library, and I just got it. I LOVE this story. The flawed heroine, the plot, the action, the depth of the characters. Pulled me in and held me hostage until I discovered what happened next. Great adventure! Where was this book when I was younger?! First in a series, and I've started book Two.

TheSpineView I too loved this series! 😍 1y
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego This is a good series. 1y

Book 5 of the year, finished Jan 19, audio

Ahh, here's my cozy place. A standard fantasy novel with horses and swords and magic and a main character shoved into an adventure they didn't want.

This was one of my favorites when it came out 20some years ago, but I haven't read it in a good 15 years so it was practically new again. Looking forward to the rest of the series.

I‘m enjoying this story but it has a definite Lord of the Rings vibe. It‘s hard not to view Karigan as Female Frodo.

Congrats on your milestone @Mitch 💖💖 I'm a few books into the Green Rider series, and am loving it. It's my first foray into High Fantasy, and is not something I would normally pick up. But a friend gave me the first book & I'm into it!

Today's #riotgrams is favorite female character. Karigan G'ladheon has been my favorite ever since I found the first Green Rider book in the school library back in seventh grade. I adore these books and this character and all the crazy things she gets caught up in! If you haven't read them yet, you definitely should!

Our Chapters haul today... Bought the Name of the Wind for a book exchange I'm going to be a part of. Going to be sending it off to someone. Pretty excited! My partner picked up Green Rider moments after I was eyeing it up from afar. Don't know much about it apart from the cover synopsis, going in blind again! 😳

So good! Highly recommend to any fantasy fan, especially of the sword and sorcery variety. Kristen Britain brings something original and fresh to the genre. The characters are engaging (even secondary ones) and the plot so gripping that your book hangover will propel you to the bookstore for the next in the series.
