Spanning some 20 years, Broch's epic trilogy of daily life in Germany established him as an important modernist innovator.

“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

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).
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.Read more ›
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.
