Green Rider (Series)
A young girl is expelled from school for fighting with another student. After running from school she comes across a green rider, one of the kings messenger, with two black arrows in his back. With his dying breath the rider asked her a favor.
The green rider talks Karigan in to taking his massage to the king for him. The rider swears her in as a green rider and she starts on the mission to bring life and death information to the king. Quickly she came to the realization that is was going to be a much more dangerous mission then she thought.
Now Kiragan must ride for her life as monsters, solders, and traitors hunt for her, and the message she has. With the help from the ghost of the dead green rider and her horse she will deliver the message but will it get there before it is too late to save the kingdom?
I was ably to pick up this book from the D.I., which is like value village or good will, for only 50 cents. It was really cheap but after only a few pages I was already hooked in to the story.
Over all I felt that the book is really strong. I love the main character. She was very believable and even though she does a lot of amazing things throughout the book she still gets hurt a lot. Everything that happens in the book feels natural and the store moves
The book does have a few slow parts and the how magic works in the book is a little confusing and odd, but over all I loved the whole thing.
I would give it a 7.5 out of 10.
