Book Reviews : Winterlight

Winterlight is the latest and penultimate entry in the Green Rider series. After really enjoying my reread of Firebrand, which I thought showed a substantial improvement in writing, I felt that Winterlight, though enjoyable to the point that I stayed up until 4am reading my ARC, was a step backwards. Winterlight doesn’t feel as well thought out to me as earlier books in the series, and again falls victim to […]

The series became one of my favorites, […]

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 […]
