Overview

Karigan G’ladheon had been a Green Rider, one of the king of Sacoridia’s elite magical messengers. In the messenger service she had been caught up in a world of deadly danger, and though she had defeated the Eletian who cracked the magical D’Yer Wall—which had protected Sacoridia for a thousand years from the dark influence of Blackveil Forest, and Mornhavon the Black’s evil spirit imprisoned within it—she had nonetheless been tainted by his wild magic.

Exhausted in body and spirit, Karigan had returned to her home in Corsa. But Karigan’s determination was no match for the Rider’s call. Ghostly hoofbeats echoed in the deep regions of her mind, and she returned to the court to find the Green Riders weakened and diminished. Rider magic was becoming unreliable, and she herself was having ghostly visions of Lil Ambriodhe, First Rider, and founder of the Green Rider corps. But why was she appearing to Karigan? And would Karigan be able to seek the help of a woman who had been dead for a thousand years? First Rider’s Call is the thrilling second novel of the Green Rider series.

Praise

I liked this book even better than the first…Britain masterfully manipulates the drama and emotions of her characters.” —Fantastical Reads

“This book does a beautiful job of telling an old story in a new way—the epic battle between Good and Evil—which is what high fantasy is all about…Britain creates a world half-familiar, half-mysterious, and wholly compelling.” —Infinity Plus

“The magic, politics and fascinating characters make this an engrossing and absorbing read.” —The Demon Librarian

“Britain has continued writing a series that is at once magical and realistic, simple and intelligent…I was deeply impressed with the duality of the story being told, the manner in which history was conveyed, and the way in which we got to see it happen.” —Fantasy Book Review
