Series: Green Rider

Book Review : Spirit of the Wood

Book Review : Spirit of the Wood

Is there anything better than catching up with old friends and learning more about the experiences that shaped them? Spirit of the Wood offers a cozy return to the magical world of the Green Rider series, which is honestly probably one of my favorite fantasy series of all time. This novella takes place before the events of the first book in the series, and takes readers along for the ride […]

Book Review : Firebrand

Book Review : Firebrand

I felt like I was the only Green Rider fan who wasn’t crazy about this book. This book made me question whether I, and not the book, was the problem. Don’t get me wrong, I was happy to revisit Karigan back in Sacoridia, but it felt like the earlier entry in the series, “Mirror Sight” hung over my head at every page.

This isn’t to say that the novel doesn’t start with a bang—it does. Readers are hooked from the onset, as main character Karrigan G’ladheon and other Green Riders on assignment are devastated by an attack from a horrific evil […]

Book Review: The Green Rider

Book Review: The Green Rider

Every now and then I come across a book that I wholeheartedly wish I had written—The Green Rider, with its sprawling fantasy world, magic broaches, intelligent horses, strong heroine, and chilling evil villains—is one of these.   When we first meet main character Karrigan G’ladheon, she has just been kicked out of school for winning a fight against a spoiled noble classmate. Unable to face her father, she runs away […]
