Okay, I can't say I don't agree with all those other disappointed reviewers/readers. The plot did seem like it kept dragging on, and I often found myself frustrated with the characters (particularly Alton), but we readers must endure the less favorable parts of the story to get to the good stuff. I, personally, really enjoyed it. Even if it isn't the most significant parts in the advancement of the series' storyline. There is still a lot of really important stuff going on here. It's mostly about sorting out details, giving clues, and advancing the characters and plot more than that type of action-packed 'let's kill the bad guy' part of the story that so many readers think you need to make make a good book. I did a little confused near the very end, with the whole High King's Tomb scene. It was hard to understand what was really going on, but I think I mostly got what was happening. Overall, I truly adored this book. It has something unique that I haven't seen in any other book (and I read a lot).

I like others enjoyed the first two books to the Green Rider series especially since they're written by a womans perspective of a female protagonist in an action/adventure type epic. I find reading things that I'm less familiar with to be more interesting. That being said my curiosity was bored stiff and the freshness I felt from the first two books was rarely duplicated in the third. I admit I am extremely critical of books and movies' plot lines so take my opinion with a grain of salt. The High King's Tomb introduces the antagonist early on and I have to say the idea alone of this person made me roll my eyes. For some reason waving a wand and saying 'hocus pocus' I can envision as being possible in some alternate reality. Maybe I'm conditioned through growing up with Witches & Wizards being common place fantasy characters. The antagonist in this book however is so unapealling to me that I had a hard time reading any chapter with her in it. This read like a writing excersize. As I read the chapters their wasn't a fluidity to the book and I think for the most part the author wrote with herself and her enjoyment in mind more than what the audience would like to read about. I haven't even finished the book yet. I'm having a rough go at this one. George R.R. Martin transfers between characters with much more grace than Britain has achieved in this book. It's not an easy thing to do and he makes it look easier than it likely is. My last word is that 'The High King's Tomb' lacks the feeling of gravity, significance, or realism in the actions of the characters. A couple of the new characters I enjoyed immensely like Karrigan's trainee. Others not so much.

    A reviewer

    After MUCH too long to wait for the third novel, I was not dissapointed at all. Karigan has grown into a confident self assured young woman and I must say I'm enjoying it all. Learning the secret to the messenger horses, discovering more about the history of the d'yer wall, finding out just how evil and VAST the second empire is, not to mention introducing a new and possibly pivital character (for the next book maybe?) are all that await the readers. I couldn't put it down, much to the chagrin of my husband. And if all that isn't enough to make you want to read the third in this series, to those that have read one and two, we see karigan in a weapon uniform and riding salvistar!!! but, I'm not saying anything else. go read it for yourself, read the whole series. And now, I have to sit and content myself until the next book is released. I pray it doesn't take too long....
