Cliffhangers are SO ANNOYING

So there’s this one series of books that I really like. It’s by Kristen Britain, and it’s called the Green Rider series.

 It’s about this girl, Karigan, who feels the “call” and becomes a Green Rider. They are messengers for the King, but they also can be used as spies, can fight in the wars, and in Karigan’s case, end up meeting all sorts of gods and legends, crossing dimensions, travelling through time, etc. All riders have a little bit of magic, but they only get to have one skill. One woman can change her shape, so she can appear as anyone she wants. She gets to be a spy a lot. One guy can see in the dark. Some people can communicate to each other telepathically, even across long distances. And Karigan gets to cross between this world and the next, sometimes travelling into the past, seeing ghosts, etc. Each book she ends up doing something more ridiculously awesome than the last book, and the books themselves are very well written. Love them.

There’s just one problem. They take forever to come out!! I was so excited that the fourth book in the series had come out, and I ordered it right away, and then read it all at once. I was waiting for the internet people to come and set up my internet, so I had to hang around the house doing nothing, so I just read all day, and then I ended up finishing the book.

And then I discovered that there will be a fifth book. Which would be totally awesome, if it didn’t end with Karigan in mortal peril (not really a first for her, I admit). And I have a feeling that I know where she is and what’s going to happen, but who knows when I will find out for sure? The author’s webpage says that she is currently working on the next book, but she has no idea when it will come out. So frustrating.

Anyway, everyone should definately read these books. Because they rock. Super awesome fantasy novels. Just be forewarned, there is a major major cliffhanger waiting for you at the end of book 4. 😦

  1. I completely agree that cliffhangers are really annoying. I think that the worst of all time has to be George RR Martin’s series A Song of Ice and Fire. There were 6 years between the 4th and 5th books being released, and he didn’t even update his webpage on the series for over three years. And then to top it off the 5th book was probably the weakest book in the series (IMO).

    • Oh yeah, the worst is when they don’t update their website, because then they’ve just totally dropped off the grid, and you have no idea what’s going on!
