I did love this book, especially getting to read 3-5 right on the heels of each other. I love the horses, and the riders. I love the deepness we started to get into with Karigan, Estora and Zachary among how the trio is playing out together (publicly and privately). I love continuing to watch The Riders grow. I have deep idea about what's going to happen with Grandmother's Daughter already, and I had a lot of Amberhill thoughts.

This is the 4th volume in the series of fantasy novels that began with Green Rider. Despite there being some exposition at the beginning of this one, you are probably better starting at the beginning of the series rather than jumping on here.

There are many plot strands going on. The central one involves an expedition back into the magically tainted forest of Blackveil. Second Empire followers are plotting the downfall of the king; and a once master thief has a new quest. Meantime Karigan has to deal with her relationship with her father. And her relationship with her king. And a game of power politics is about to commence. The realm will never the same again as a result.

Written in the same style as the previous three books, this is a very amiable read. Although it takes till over the halfway point for the expedition to set off, there's still enough going on in the meantime, involving a lot of characters who you do come to care about, to make the pages turn very nicely.
This volume runs for 647 pages. And, with an almightly cliffhanger ending, it is most definitely not the end of the story. Thankfully, I have the next instalment right to hand – and will quickly rejoin Karigan and her friends on this journey. ( )

Blackveil - Kristen Britain
A truly long wait between books in this series. As well-written, action-packed as the others with the characters readers of this series will have invested in.

But lots of POV switching, took half the book to get to Blackveil and while not exactly a cliffhanger left everything up in the air. Hopefully series isn't being stretched out endlessly.

I probably would have have rated higher — because really is a very good book — had so much of it not really gone anywhere in a lot of pages or gone places I did not like (what happens with King Zachary even if I'm pretty sure where that thread is headed).

I have no no doubt this series will continue to be a favorite and the next books soothe my qualms about this one.

Maybe I should have let my book hangover resolve itself instead of rating so quickly; right now, this is my opinion of my reading experience. ( )

I started this book fulling expecting it give it one star. I was uber-pissed about the length of time between book 3 and this. I didn't care about Britain's reasons" given on her blog or anything else she had to say.

As the story went on, I got over that. This was a half decent story with some real interesting possibilities and I was thinking, OK, this deserves 3 stars 'cause I'm liking this.

Then things got all romance'y. And by romance'y, I mean angsty, poke my eyes out with the characters whining about their love or lack thereof. And the consumation scene? Next thing you know, the next book will be a soft porn romance, sigh. A lot of things felt like they were thrown in because the author would have liked something like that, not because it was integral to the story.

Finally, the ending cliffhanger. Britain really needs to wrap this series up. Instead, she keeps making this bigger and bigger. If I have to wait another 4 years before the NEXT book, and it isn't the final book, then I will not be reading it. Period.

Miss Britain, get over yourself and wrap this thing up. You want to write more, fine. Do it with another series. I'm just about ready to get rid of my 3 previous hardcovers in the series and be done with you. I can't recommend your Greenrider series anymore because I don't know when it will end and I will not put others through this same path of daggers that I have gone through." ( )
