Karigan G’ladheon is a Green Rider—a seasoned member of the elite messenger corps of King Zachary of Sacoridia. King Zachary sends Karigan and a contingent of Sacoridians beyond the edges of his nation, into the mysterious Blackveil Forest, which has been tainted with dark magic by a twisted immortal spirit named Mornhavon the Black.At the end of Blackveil, in a magical confrontation against Mornhavon, Karigan is jolted out of Blackveil Forest and wakes in darkness. She’s lying on smooth, cold stone, but as she reaches out, she realizes that the stone is not just beneath her, but above and around her as well. She’s landed in a sealed stone sarcophagus, some unknown tomb, and the air is becoming thin.Is this to be her end? If she escapes, where will she find herself? Is she still in the world she remembers, or has the magical explosion transported her somewhere completely different? To find out, she must first win free of her prison— before it becomes her grave. And should she succeed, will she be walking straight into a trap created by Mornhavon himself?Mirror Sight is the highly-anticipated fifth installment of the Green Rider series.
I’m sure you can see why. For me, Kristen Britain is the female George R. R. Martin, leaving her readers pining for years between books. (Though I must admit, she has never pushed back a release date that I’m aware of.) But there are still the trademark cliffhangers and angst and guesswork about what has/will become of our protagonist. For me, I’ve been reading this series since I was in high school… and not to put a fine point on it, but I had my 10 year reunion last year. So I’ve been waiting to discover Karigan’s fate for quite some time. But I know better than to think this will be the end of Karigan’s or my suffering. According to her FAQs page, she’s already working on book 6. If you haven’t read this spectacular series, I highly recommend starting at the beginning. The wait will be less painful that way–I hope!
