Karigan G'ladahon has fled from school following a fight which would surely lead to her expulsion. As she makes her way through the deep forest, a galloping horse pounds up to her, its rider impaled by two black-shafted arrows.

Reminds me a little bit of Mercedes Lackey's Herald series in that there is a special bond between rider's and their horses. But there is also the element of special magical talents with certain rider pins. This is a fun fantasy novel that I had no problem getting caught up with. My favorite part was when Karigan meets two old ladies in the woods. Exciting adventure. Oh - and there is now a second book (someone reviewed here that they wished there was one): First Rider's Call.

I can't remember the last time I enjoyed a straight-forward fantasy novel so much! "Green Rider" was well-written and a lot of fun. Plenty of derring-do and high adventure, plus political intrigue and some very charming characters (the Misses Bunchberry and Bayberry, anyone?). A just plain out good read. If you like fantasy at all, you'll like this book!

This is the first I have read by this author, and I'll definitely be on the lookout for more. She creates an absolutely plausible fantasy world, and an altogether good read.

this book was great.
I could barely put it down as I read it. Time would go by so fast and I would be lost in the world that the author created. Lots of adventure, excitement, magic and rescue. Wish I could find the sequel!

Surprisingly good! I have had this book, unread and on my shelf, for over 8 years, but it's a good story and certainly thrilling. I was really surprised by how exciting it was. It had some beautifully crafted sentences and there are two more books in the series that I will watch out for - especially since it seems like there may be a romance between the young Rider & the king. The magical background has a lot of potential for more stories too.

This was my favourite book when I was a teenager and I decided to revisit it to see if it still held up. It's really enjoyable as a fun read -easy to get caught up in!- but is PERFECT as a young adult fantasy read! Some of the descriptions are a bit lacking (especially during battle sequences) and that makes it somewhat hard to follow along at times but overall, I find it to be well-written and entertaining. The fact that the main protagonist is a strong, young woman is what drew me to this book in the first place; I was very happy to find that those kinds of characters are written throughout making the story a solid 50/50 ratio of men and women - not something you find often in fantasy novels.
