Description:

Karigan G'ladheon's adventure continues in the much-anticipated sixth installment in the NEW YORK TIMES bestselling series. Green Rider Karigan G'ladheon, not yet recovered in heart or mind from her unexpected trip through time, is assigned a new mission. She must seek out the legendary creatures called p'ehdrosian to renew an alliance of old in the face of dire threats from enemies who seek to destroy Sacoridia using dark magic. Each step on her journey northward grows more perilous as she faces attacks from groundmites, encounters with ghosts, and, ultimately, the threat of the necromancer and leader of Second Empire, Grandmother, as they approach the enemy encampment in the Lone Forest. Meanwhile, King Zachary of Sacoridia has been kidnapped by an ice elemental who is allied with Second Empire. Can Karigan free her king from captivity with just two allies by her side? ** ### Review Praise for the *Green Rider* series: “*Green Rider *is a wonderfully captivating heroic fantasy adventure.... Kristen Britain’s likable heroine and fast-paced plot kept me eagerly turning pages. **This is the rarest of finds: a truly enjoyable read**.” —Terry Goodkind, #1 *New York Times*-bestselling author of The Sword of Truth series "Kristen Britain is one of the most astonishing fantasy writers working today.

Karigan grows tremendously as a person and in the end finds her own place in this world. The characters, including minor ones, are well-developed and the plot is complex enough to get the reader thinking. **This is a real page-turner**.” —***VOYA *** "Kristen Britain **writes so beautifully that I never want to have to put her books down**." ―Fantasy Book Review ### About the Author ****Kristen Britain** **is the author of the *New York Times*-bestselling Green Rider series.
