Overview

Karigan G’ladheon is a Green Rider—a seasoned member of the elite messenger corps of King Zachary of Sacoridia. King Zachary sends Karigan and a contingent of Sacoridians beyond the edges of his nation, into the mysterious Blackveil Forest, which has been tainted with dark magic by a twisted immortal spirit named Mornhavon the Black.

At the end of Blackveil, in a magical confrontation against Mornhavon, Karigan is jolted out of Blackveil Forest and wakes in darkness. She’s lying on smooth, cold stone, but as she reaches out, she realizes that the stone is not just beneath her, but above and around her as well. She’s landed in a sealed stone sarcophagus, some unknown tomb, and the air is becoming thin.

Is this to be her end? If she escapes, where will she find herself? Is she still in the world she remembers, or has the magical explosion transported her somewhere completely different? To find out, she must first win free of her prison— before it becomes her grave. And should she succeed, will she be walking straight into a trap created by Mornhavon himself?

Mirror Sight is the highly-anticipated fifth installment of the Green Rider series.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
05/15/2014
Green Rider Karigan G'ladheon has survived the battle in the Blackveil Forest, but she has been thrown forward 200 years, to a time very different from her own. An oppressive empire has replaced the line of her beloved King Zachary, and magic is all but lost in the world. A history professor fascinated by Karigan's past takes her in, and with his help and that of his student Harlowe Cade, she will attempt to get back to her own era. VERDICT The time jump makes this an easy place for those who haven't read the whole series (last visited in 2012's Blackveil) to begin, although it also means we don't get much time with the Green Rider corps, one of the more enjoyable aspects of Britain's world. Karigan has been through much in the course of the five books, and the ending here is left open for more stories featuring the brave rider.

Meet the Author

Kristen Britain

Kristen Britain grew up in the Finger Lake region of New York State, where she started her first novel—an undersea fantasy featuring herself and her friends—at the age of nine. She published her first book, a cartoon collection called, Horses and Horsepeople, at the age of thirteen. In 1987 she completed a degree in film production, with a minor in writing, at Ithaca College. After graduation, travel beckoned and she began a career as a ranger with the National Park Service, enabling her to work in a variety of natural and historical settings, from 300 feet below the surface of the Earth to 13,000 feet above sea level on the Continental Divide; and from the textile mills of the American Industrial Revolution to the homes of Americans who changed the course of history. Her first published epic fantasy novel, Green Rider, the story of a runaway school girl who finds herself in deep peril when she agrees to bear a message for a dying Green Rider, was released in 1998. She can be found at kristenbritain.com.

    Kristen Britain's next installment of the Green Rider series wil

    Kristen Britain's next installment of the Green Rider series will leave some disappointments, but still is a fantastic read in its own right.
    Readers that have followed Karigan through the last four books will be pleased that this book almost exclusively follows Karigan through her adventure in another time. The shattered mask from Blackveil thrusts Karigan far into the future, where she has a powerful opportunity to learn what the consequences are if her world continues on its present course.
    Disappointingly, however, is the startling lack of perspective and information from characters from her original time. Readers who have been closely following the development of these other characters (and the wall, which is its own entity) will be disappointed that these subplots do not develop further. In short, a fantastic adventure focusing on Karigan, but the details of previously laid subplots are seriously lacking.

    I have to say I was really disappointed by this 5th book. Previous books have been character driven, exciting and just different enough to be novel. This book felt more like 10 novellas that should have been posted between writing book 4 and the REAL book 5. Nothing actually really happened in this book. We aren't  much further along then we were at the end of book 4. In addition, our wonderful, strong, zany and sometimes fool-hardy Karigan was almost unrecognizable. There were moments here and there in the book when I felt Kristen Britain recaptured her style. It also felt almost like the author had listened to way too much advise from another author and subsequently lost her voice.

    I cant believe Britain let the king marry that a-hole estora! I ve been reading this series since i was ten and was truly hoping to see something happen between the king and karigan. Why is evyone so nice to this deceiving womoan? Now i am also very dissapointed on the reviews im reading about the fifth installment. I think this series is being stretched out to long without finishing some of the sub plots that have been formed. I hope something changes!

    Not in the right Era, not in the Green Rider setting and no information or following of the other characters. Not real sure why we went into the future but this series needs to get on it's original tracks. Seriously

    The Book is alright. Left me disappointed since the world of the Green Riders that I know and love was basically non-existant. also I could not help not being skeptical about the time travel because all the issues and people who die (which upsets Karigan) are pointless events because you know she is going to get back eventually. I just felt like it was a filler book to buy her three to five years to write another book that actually fits in with the series.

    Being a Green Rider book it is good in its own way. There were a lot of things that I missed though like other character developments. Those were just touched on briefly. I like the growth of Karigan's character in this book. It reminded me of what might be a steampunk novel. It was okay but definitely not my favorite. I am looking forward to the next book all ready so we can get back to her own time.
    It is a good book in its own right and that is why I gave it a 3 out of 5.

    Great book with lots of adventure. I liked the fact that it revolves mostly around Karigan. However, I could not give it five stars. The book does not reveal many scenes in the present that explore how the other riders had faced Karigan's loss. If you have read the other Green Rider books, that may be a disappointment.

    I Also Recommend:

    Fantastic!!  This book is a wonderful addition to the Green Ride

    Fantastic!!  This book is a wonderful addition to the Green Rider Series. I like that it focused solely upon Karigan, as well as the new characters and environment she in interacted with. However most of the book was quite honestly filler material, as I imagine this book will be a transition to more consequential things in later installments. It was little bit of a letdown as nothing actually REALLY happened, and as much as I don't mind main characters going through trauma and hardship, I felt like Karigan was going through quite a lot this time. Yet that being said, Ms. Britain has an enchanting writing style and reading all 770 pages in this book was pure enjoyment. 
    I hope we don’t have to suffer through another 3 year wait for the next book! Either way, I’m excited for whatever comes next for Karigan!!

    Continue the saga!

    Although the Green Rider series started strong the last two books in the series kind of fell flat, with the reader waiting for a non-existent climax. This book, however, fulfills all that missing tension after the first hundred or so pages. Be prepared for continual shocks.

    Big disappointment

    The last book (book4) was somewhat depressing and ended with a cliff hanger. I waited a long time for this book and I don't like it.
    90% of the book had only the main character from previous books. The setting completely changed and not in a good way. The previous books were in a medieval setting that was charming. The new setting was dull and mostly very boring. Also, lots of repeating to explain previous books/characters/new environment (~50% ).

    First 3 books in the series had charm and humor. 4th book lacked humor. 5th book lacked both charm and humor.

    This is not a Green Rider book. My first thoughts upon completing the book:
    1. Why, Kristen Britain?
    2. Pointless and doesn't have the same feel as the other 4 books.
    3. 3 days of my life I'll never get back.

    Like many readers I am disappointed in the Karigan /Zachary/ Estora plot line but the book is excellent. Actually made a two page list of questions to be answered by future installment, foremost , Grandmother's name, the twin, Enver and,p'endrose, I hope the readers who have discarded this series pick their books back up. Ms. Britain may not take this series where we want to go but she has unlocked many doors. Can't wait to see which door she choses for Karigan to enter in the next installment. Write faster , Ms. Britain , write fast.

    Definitely started out different from the "usual" Green Rider feel but I liked it a lot. More so toward the end. Perhaps because I was so disappointed in the last book-so many deaths and departures of characters (and the King's marriage). But hey! to each his own.

    So, so

    This is the first one of this series that wouldn't hold my attention. I found myself flipping around in the book. Never really read all of it. Disappointing. Don't think I will buy the next one.
