“Karigan’s adventures, full of strange and deadly encounters, provide [Blackveil's
] core.... With characters you care about, touches of complicated romance, and some wonderfully weird developments (vampire hummingbirds!), this is a hard-to-put-down adventure.
"Kristen Britain’s Blackveil has everything that Green Rider fans could hope for
, including romance, adventure, humor, time travel, dark magic, entertaining drama, ghosts, prophetic visions, and much more." —Fantasy Book Critic
"The latest Kariagan epic fantasy is a terrific entry
loaded with subplots that provide the reader with both the big picture of the world of Kristin Britain and the small scale happenings that impact the larger scope.... With a strong diverse cast (a trademark of Ms. Britain), fans will welcome the return to Sacoridia." —Midwest Book Review
About the Author
grew up in the Finger Lake region of New York State, where she started her first novel—an undersea fantasy featuring herself and her friends—at the age of nine. She published her first book, a cartoon collection called, Horses and Horsepeople
, at the age of thirteen. In 1987 she completed a degree in film production, with a minor in writing, at Ithaca College. After graduation, travel beckoned and she began a career as a ranger with the National Park Service, enabling her to work in a variety of natural and historical settings, from 300 feet below the surface of the Earth to 13,000 feet above sea level on the Continental Divide; and from the textile mills of the American Industrial Revolution to the homes of Americans who changed the course of history. Her first published epic fantasy novel, Green Rider
, the story of a runaway school girl who finds herself in deep peril when she agrees to bear a message for a dying Green Rider, was released in 1998. She can be found at kristenbritain.com.
