This book is absolutly amazing! This book has everything; magic, adventure, humor, romance, plot twists, battles, and crazy smart horses. Kristen Britain never ever seems to disappoint! The only thing is that it takes her awhile to wriite a new book, but trust me its so worth the wait! I havnt met anyone whos read this book and not fallen head over heels in love.

I really enjoyed The Green Rider, and thought it was a great start to a series, as well as a great first novel for the writer. I liked the lead character, as well as the many other we meet along her journey. I look forward to reading the rest of the series. I recommend this book to adults and older teens who would like to read a fantasy/adventure.

If you're looking for something in the fantasy genre outside the worlds of Tolkien, Jordan and Goodkind, give Kristin Britain's new series a try. The premise of the Green Riders is new and intriguing, with the main character being a young woman! It's a "wild ride" along with Karigan G'ladheon through the Green Cloak forest and into the world of the Green Riders. Magic, intrigue, the politics of a kingdom endangered by an ancient enemy....and only the Green Riders stand to defend the world they know from those trying to end it. Pick it up today - it's a great read and you'll enjoy it!

Great foundation book of the series. Book 2: ' First Riders Call' is just as good and Book 3: 'The High King's Tomb' is even better! They are also light enough that younger generations (teens) can enjoy and relate and enjoy them all. Granted, it's not a book for everyone but is one that leaves the reader impatient to read the next book in the series. Is not for people who like deep and complex plots/themes/characters they can absorb and over analyze or want fast paced plot movement and " truly think something that should take a few days at most shouldn't take up 400 pages." Never mind the fact this book is the foundation of the whole series and Karigan is facing dangers at every turn in the book while trying to deliver a message that wasn't her's to deliver in the first place, out running enemies that will stop at nothing to kill her to keep the message from being delivered, AND is to do so with no other help than the Spirit of the Murdered Green Rider who made per promise to get the message to Sacor City and his mount/a horse. She also discovers that the Green Rider's Broach holds magic she learns she can wield to help her escape and elude those intent on stopping her. In the end she helps defeat the King's Enemies, the Mirwellians, and learns a lot about herself and who she is to become (her calling in life). In the end she finds that she's no longer just an average citizen of her world.

Karigan G'ladheon is a well spun character. Britain gives breathe to her story - even in the heavier parts of the book, she lightens the mood with a bit of humor. I especially liked how she tied the Horse into the fabric of the tale. This has everything that I love in a book: action, strong characters, a bit of suspense, and a few horses to boot!

This is one of my absolute favorite books ever. If I'm bored and don't have anything new or I'm going on a long trip, I grab this book because it never gets old and I find something new everytime. Karigan is about as real of a character as anyone can bring to life. After running away from school, she gets thrust into a world of magic and intrigue. With her new partner, The Horse, she must deliever a message. But someone doesn't want said message to make it to its final destination. Kristen Britian surely is a gift writer. Not only do her characters come to life, but the imagery is so vivid, you'll feel like you're there. No part of this story is boring in anyway. If you're looking for a great magical page-turner, read this.

i tend towards paranormal books, especially ones with animals. this series is well written, engaging, at times very humorous, sigh, i could go on forever so list only negative, which is, well, maybe some sex be nice, poor girl, geez ;) oh, and for some reason takes around four years for next book be released, lucky me did not come across it until fourth book published.. hopefully nothing happens to author before fifth and hopefully final book comes out, im not getting any younger either, lol.

Other than being a fan of Harry Potter, I have not considered myself a huge fan of fantasy in general. This book may be the one that opens my mind to a new genre. I loaded this into my nook as my first purchase after meeting the author at a literacy event, and I have not been disappointed. Quickly caught up by the characters and the storyline, I am looking forward to reading the rest of the series.

I keep finding myself returning to this series again and again, I can't tell you how many times I've reread these books. Started with paperbacks and now have the ebooks so I can take them with me everywhere.

Grace was walking down Elden Lane carrying her bag on one shoulder. She hummed along to the music she was listening to on her phone as she turned the corner. Grace had long curly brown hair and matching brown eyes,she was short but fiesty. She walks down the street as cars blew past on the highway, and every once in a while she would look up and sigh wishing she could run away from everything but she couldnt. She walks into the Seven Eleven she always went to after school "Hey Liz!" She says smiling as she walks in. Liz was the cashier at the gas station and Graces aunt. "Hey Grace! " Liz says before looking back at the costomer with a smile "Have a nice day honey.." she says as the man left and walks out from behind the counter and gives Grace a hug "How was school?" She asks curiously "It was fine.." she lied for she had a really bad day at school but she didnt want to make her Aunt Liz worry. She pushs the button on the slushie machine for cherry flavored slush. Liz smiled "Good!" She says as a man walks in "Hello sir.." she says as she returns to the cashier. Grace looks at the man curiously "forty bucks on pump four..." says the man before looking at Grace and smirks she frowns at him <p> thanks guys if you want more just reply to me for more &infin Nobodys Girl &infin

This book was very reminiscent of The Hobbit. A great journey with a very likeable hero and a great cast of characters .

This book is thoroughly engrossing. For once, a fantasy novel that centers around a female protagonist and doesn't fall into stereotypes. The main character feels real and flawed, the baddies seem quite bad, and there's even an element of mystery to help round things out.

This book has a girl running for her life, a crazy warlord, a band of messengers, and a old and sad king. Is that not cool?
