"Zachary Davriel Hillander, High King of Sacoridia, rues how much he has had to give up to lead his realm, including the freedom to live and love as he chooses. When an embassy from Eletia arrives to propose a joint venture between their realms to seek out an old ally in the north, he is dismayed to learn that the one Sacoridian they have in mind to accompany their guide is the woman he truly loves but cannot have: Green Rider Karigan G'ladheon. Karigan has only just returned from a dark future where Sacoridia has been conquered and is ruled by a despotic emperor, and she has not recovered in heart or mind. As if that is not enough, the castle ghosts won't leave her alone. Though Zachary is loath to part from her so soon after her return, he knows she is the best choice to undertake the mission to the north. Each step on their journey places Karigan and her companions closer to enemy territory and danger, for northward lie the forces of Second Empire, Sacoridia's longtime foe, and Grandmother, the necromantic leader of Second Empire, has not been idle. She uses her magic to summon a wild elemental spirit to wreak havoc upon Zachary and his wife, Queen Estora. At first the Sacoridians succeed in fending off the creature, but it so covets Estora that it can't stay away. It abducts Zachary, assuming his form and his place at Estora's side--but when it is finally ousted, Zachary is still missing. Estora, alone and heavy with twins, must prepare her realm for the coming conflict from the confines of her bedchamber. Meanwhile, the danger only deepens for Karigan and her companions as they journey north. When she finds herself caught in the midst of a clash between forces, Karigan must rescue and protect her king before she falls into a trap set by Grandmother--a trap that could give Second Empire the power to control the dead and all the demons of the hells" -- provided by publisher.… (mer)

.... I just can't even right now with this author... I loved these books. was ecstatic to get mirror sight, only to have my hopes crushed by what was presented to me. I gave it one more book, but this was not a well written book and basically repeated the same plot as the third book.

Also, I'm not the best at grammar. I usually keep my nose out of grammar in published books, but this book contained so many commas I'm not quite sure there are any left for the other authors.

KB also tried on multiple occasions to put an elegant feel to how she phrased things, similar to the works of Tolkien or The Brontë sisters, this didn't work cause it wasn't a constant style.

I know what most will say about this review after they see it. 'don't read it if you don't like it'. I'm here to tell you that this will be the last green rider book that I read and this will be the only review that I write. I am simply posting my irritation for other to see and possibly enjoy if they have similar feelings. I am not looking for an argument, so please don't respond unless you want to discuss intellectually about this book.

Thank you KB for the first wonderful books, and for giving me more confidence in my writing ability. ( )

Loved this one. I forgive her for the last one's necessary tangent ( )

800 hard to get through pages to get Zachery and Karigan together in situations where nothing much can happen between them and doesn’t. Torture and misery for most. At least Grandmother is gone but Lala looks to be worse. ( )

Didn't realise I'd missed one in the middle of this series and went straight on to this last book. That wasn't a real issue, but it would have been better for someone starting out to pick the series up from the beginning. Firebrand is the Eletian name for King Zachary, just as they call Karigan 'The Galadheon'. In this book, we learn a little more about this spiritual, immortal race which is [very much based on Tolkien's Wood Elves - right down to the drawing on the cover, which is straight out of Lord of the Rings, the movies. Although they were Sacoridia's allies in the war against Mornhavon, they have always remained an enigma. Karigan has never entirely trusted them, always suspecting a hidden agenda, and at the end of the book we see why.
Karigan and Zachary both suffer at the hands of Second Empire in this story and the whole Zachary/Karigan/Estoria thing continues unresolved.
By the end of the book there are enough loose threads to indicate this second trilogy is not the end - how long must we wait for book 7? ( )
