Mirror Sight (Green Rider Series #5) by Kristen Britain

Magic, danger, and adventure abound for messenger Karigan G'ladheon in author Kristen Britain's New York Times-bestselling Green Rider fantasy series • "First-rate fantasy." —Library Journal 

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.

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?

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.

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

Any other nook users have a problem with the tree picture completely covering the words at the beginning of the chapters?

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.

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.

While connected to the first 4 books...this one clearly goes off on a tangent that on conclusion appears to have no bearing on the overall series (whether it has bearing at all will become apparent as the series continues). If anything you will walk away with a steampunk tear jerker that portrays the main character a little bit softer. One could skip this book and most likely still pick up in the sixth book with few blank spots in the story. So, I don't care for steampunk as a rule but this story was written well. So I wont say not to read it but beware it contributes very little to the storyline. And yeah the king marries Estoria...bummer.

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.

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!!

The first four books in this series were some of the best literary works of the fantasy genre to have been published in the new century. While Mirror Sight if a fine work of literature, it hardly seems an appropriate next installment of the series. Many sub plots developed in Blackveil were left by the wayside as the protagonist is abruptly transported into an alien futuristic world. If the author was tired of the characters she had developed in the previous works and wanted to set her mind onbsomething completely different, then this futuristic world of Mirror Sight would have been better labeled as a "new work" rather than the long awaited sequel to Blackveil.

Exciting! I can understand why people were disappointed with this next installment. I was a little apprehensive about the direction this book took but while I continued reading it, I found it to be a very creative way to push the story. The push into the future was an odd turn of events after the Mirror Mask was shattered, but it wasn't out of the realm of Karigan's ability to make this leap regardless how drastic. She has been moving back and firth through time since Book 2. It was a fast pace read that I thoroughly enjoyed. Karigan continues to display real life, human emotions and limitations that reminds us she's not a super human, she's just a normal girl who gets tossed around by events. Those  upset about Karigan and Zachary not getting together, it probably won't be cannon no matter how much all of us want it. He's a king. She's not a noble. I have been following this series since it was released in 1998  and I have always been just as hopeful that the unrequited love could be requited. But I don't think it will happen.  I am anxiously anticipating Firebrand after the cliffhanging conclusion that Britain is know for. I remain a loyal reader and Karigan is and will always bee my favorite character.

I adore the Green Rider series. The first four installments of the series were well written, wild adventures featuring the spunky and sometimes impulsive heroine, Karigan. As much as I hate to say it, this book was quite the let-down. Mirror Sight, the fifth and most recently released book in the series, features not only a new set of characters, but also a version of Karigan that is surprisingly different from the version of her we, as readers, have come to know and love. Perhaps it's growing pains, but this book was disappointing.

The journey to the future is full of uncertainty, determination, duty and love. There were so many possibilities for this last book, but the ending is the authors.

Disappointing: Some pointless time-travel nonsense that doesn't even matter. Some spoilers included: I loved the first 4 books in this series. The world Britain built was amazing and full of wonderful characters (and amazing female characters!) so it was extremely disappointing when we left all those characters behind and traveled with Karigan so some sort of future Victorian setting where women aren't allowed to do anything at all. And Karigan morphs from a strong-willed, but reluctant hero to a helpless, love-sick teenager. You could probably skip this book and just go straight to the sixth one when it releases without missing anything much. This story focuses a lot on Karigan, but unfortunately all the other characters are barely even mentioned.
