Book Description

Feb. 7 2012 Green Rider (Book 4)
Karigan G'ladheon was a regular girl until she stumbled across a dying man. There were two arrows embedded in his back, and wherever his horse was taking him, he was going to die before they got there. He gave Karigan his horse, his cloak and his brooch - the symbol that he was one of the King's Green Riders - and, with them, his mission. To deliver a message to the King. He made her swear to do it ...even though the Shadow Man who killed him would be hot on her trail. That mission made her a Green Rider. Now, her first legendary mission is long complete. Karigan has learnt to wield the magic her Green Rider brooch allows her to access, and she's used it to defy some of the most terrifying dark magicians of the age. But while Mornhavon the Black has gone, he's not defeated. His restless spirit haunts Blackveil, the lethal, corrupt forest that stands beyond a failing magical wall at the edge of King Zachary's territory. Karigan's destiny is leading her there, and when her King asks her to join a mission to Blackveil to save the remnants of a dying race, it seems she has little choice but to follow it ...

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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Contrived 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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Blackveil book 4 in Green Rider series Sept. 30 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
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).
