Review

“Karigan’s adventures, full of strange and deadly encounters, provide [BLACKVEIL's] core.... With characters you care about, touches of complicated romance, and some wonderfully weird developments (vampire hummingbirds!), this is a hard-to-put-down adventure.” — Locus

"Kristen Britain’s Blackveil has everything that Green Rider fans could hope for, including romance, adventure, humor, time travel, dark magic, entertaining drama, ghosts, prophetic visions, and much more." — Fantasy Book Critic

"The latest Kariagan epic fantasy is a terrific entry loaded with subplots that provide the reader with both the big picture of the world of Kristin Britain and the small scale happenings that impact the larger scope.... With a strong diverse cast (a trademark of Ms. Britain), fans will welcome the return to Sacoridia." — Midwest Book Review

"If you read my reviews long enough, you’ll soon come to realize that I love good epic fantasy more than anything else. There’s something about the heroism, the magic systems, the adventure, and the bold characters that I truly enjoy. And for me, Kristen Britain’s books fit the bill. " — Owlcat Mountain

“Britain provides plenty of action… and a good command of character.” — Booklist (for THE HIGH KING'S TOMB)

"Britain keeps the excitement high from beginning to end, balancing epic magical battles with the humor and camaraderie of Karigan and her fellow riders." — Publishers Weekly (for THE HIGH KING'S TOMB)

This book begins with Karigan confronting her father about his past, and finding out more about her mother. After returning to the castle she is asked to join the mission to Blackveil as she is one of the few that have been there and survived.

I didn't particularly care about for any of the other characters, if they lived or died, or their subplots. Maybe it has been too long since I read the other books in the series and I didn't remember much about them.

There are a few surprising moments, but much of the plot line is predictable. I did still enjoy reading it and found it hard to put down. It also ends in a cliffhanger which has me eagerly awaiting for the next book(s).

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is the sequel to High King's Tomb, of the Green Rider series. This picks up weeks or months after the events described in High King's Tomb. Karigan is on an errand to deliver a message to her father, and to take him to task for a few indiscretions. In the meantime, Lord Amberhill is preparing to depart from court, and is feeling the call of the sea. Alton D'Yer is at the wall, and though he now has a translation of the manuscript of the magician who created the magic of the wall, he still struggles to make sense of it and to protect the structure separating Sacoridia from Blackveil. And Second Empire is on the march, with Birch to the north mounting his army and Grandmother inside Blackveil off to a nefarious plan. When an Eletian delegation arrives at the sacoridian court, they reveal their intention to take advantage of Morhavon's absence from Blackveil to ascertain what became of their beloved Argenthyne. They also invite the King to send a delegation of his own to accompany them. What their true purpose is remains unclear to Sacoridians, but the King and his counselors decide to send a contingent with a Coutre province forester, a soldier, an army officer, and three Green Riders. Because Karigan is the only Rider besides Alton to have been inside Blackveil, she is assigned to the detachment, and must prepare to march into the tainted forest on the day of the spring equinox.

Ms. Britain has not lost her knack of making characters sympathetic, of making simple dialogues interesting and touching at times, but this synopsis is a much harder sell than previous ones where there was more action, more friendship, more heroism and less defeatism. The start of the book is slow.

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Joe Brindle on Feb. 2 2011
Format: Hardcover
The first and second books in this series were well plotted, if a little overly reliant on sudden divine interventions to resolve moments of conflict. The Third volume was a good extension of the series but with some parts of the plot feeling forced. This last effort however feels contrived and of much lower quality of plot and character development than the 3 books before it, so much so that I set the book aside and I will likely never bother to finish it.

The series was a pleasant discovery for me, and though I've enjoyed it, I feel some of the recent story arcs are being added to prolong it.

For example, the Lord Amberhill Sea King mission could easily be removed and the story would move along nicely - Lord Amberhill is the Jar Jar Binks of the Green Rider series!

It doesn't need to be prolonged - I'm ready for the whole thing to come to an end, especially when there is a 4-year average wait between volumes.
