Happy Days In Fantasy Land; Blackveil Delivers

I thought all fantasy would fade to pale
After The Name of the Wind
I was wrong, of course
Blackveil by Kristen Britain
Fourth book of the Green Rider Series
The best of Britain's work to date
I have enjoyed the series immensely
The strong female protagonist, Karigan
Has the depth of character
The conflicted human condition we all know
Karigan has the strength to keep moving
In spite of her environs
In spite of herself
Readers of John Flanagan's Ranger's Apprentice Series
This one is also for you!

Music on my mind
Something you will have to go find
Alt-Country long before there was such a term
Sweetheart of the Rodeo by The Byrds 1968
It's worth clicking this link to the Wiki
Enjoy, if you find it.

  1. Thought I'd let you know you've done it again. I finished The Name of the Wind, and now my teen son has barely put it down. Needless to say I'm on the waiting list for the next in the series.
