Overview

Karigan G’ladheon is a Green Rider—a seasoned member of the elite messenger corps of King Zachary of Sacoridia. But Karigan is no ordinary Rider, for she was able to transport the evil spirit of Mornhavon into the future, though no one knows how far he has been sent. During this window of relative safety, King Zachary decides to send Karigan and a small contingent of scouts, accompanied by a small group of Eletians—a magical race who once lived in the lands now tainted by Mornhavon’s magic—into Blackveil Forest.

Though Mornhavon is gone, the forest is still a treacherous place filled with monstrous creatures and deadly traps. And unbeknownst to the band of Eletians and Sacoridians, another small group has entered the forest—Arcosian descendants who have kept Mornhavon’s dark magic alive in secret for centuries, and who now plan to avenge their long ago defeat by bringing Sacoridia to its knees. Blackveil is the fourth novel of the acclaimed Green Rider series.

Praise

"Britain keeps the excitement high from beginning to end, balancing epic magical battles with the humor and camaraderie of Karigan and her fellow riders."
– Publishers Weekly (for THE HIGH KING’S TOMB)
“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

“If you read my reviews long enough, you’ll soon come to realize that I love good epic fantasy more than anything else. There’s something about the heroism, the magic systems, the adventure, and the bold characters that I truly enjoy. And for me, Kristen Britain’s books fit the bill. ” —Owlcat Mountain
