Blurb: Karigan G’ladheon is a Green Rider—a seasoned member of the elite messenger corps of King Zachary of Sacoridia. But Karigan is no ordinary Rider, for she was able to transport the evil spirit of Mornhavon into the future, though no one knows how far he has been sent. During this window of relative safety, King Zachary decides to send Karigan and a small contingent of scouts, accompanied by a small group of Eletians—a magical race who once lived in the lands now tainted by Mornhavon’s magic—into Blackveil Forest.
Though Mornhavon is gone, the forest is still a treacherous place filled with monstrous creatures and deadly traps. And unbeknownst to the band of Eletians and Sacoridians, another small group has entered the forest—Arcosian descendants who have kept Mornhavon’s dark magic alive in secret for centuries, and who now plan to avenge their long ago defeat by bringing Sacoridia to its knees. Blackveil is the fourth novel of the acclaimed Green Rider series.
Review: This is going to be rather short and sweet. Like the last book, there were places where this slowed down a bit and started to kind of drag on. This also started to get more into deeper court intrigue and political plays, which isn’t my favorite.
Other than those things, I did really like this. Until I hit the end. Major, ugly cliffhanger, which I really do not like at all. This hasn’t been a series that has done that up to this point so that was a big disappointment. All I can say is that I’m seriously glad that the next book was already available so I could jump right in where I left off. This is still a 4 star book, but if this is any indication of where this is going to go from here on out as a series, I’m not sure the other books are going to be able to hold on to that rating.
