Publisher's Summary

A thousand years ago, the armies of the Arcosian Empire, led by Mornhavon the Black, crossed the great sea and tried to conquer the land of Sacoridia - and during Karigan G’ladheon’s early years as a Green Rider, Mornhavon’s spirit, sensing weakness in his prison walls and seeking vengeance, began to wake.
With the ghostly help of the First Rider, Karigan had managed to drive off the spirit of Mornhavon - but for how long, no one could know. And now, the descendants of those Arcosians are ready to strike, reaching out to claim the land their forebears had tried to conquer. Worse, these vengeful enemies had spent generations honing their powers of dark magic - a force against which the Sacoridians had no defense….

3rd book and still an interesting story

Would you consider the audio edition of The High King's Tomb to be better than the print version?

I haven't read the written version.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The High King's Tomb?

The scene in the tombs where Keri. is dressed in black.

What about Ellen Archer???s performance did you like?

She is WONDERFUL! She doesn't read the words she puts so much feeling into the words. Ellen is easily in my top five narrators and I have listened to over 150 audiobooks.

Any additional comments?

Some say this book wasn't as enjoyable as the first two books. I have to say book three is just as interesting as the first two. We simply didn't have a BIG battle to deal with, just little skirmishes to move the characters around. I think I would be disappointed if every book had the same plot formula to it. This book took a small step back to allow the reader to take a breath, but it doesn't mean that this book was boring by any means. As the story goes on the life around K gets larger and the author spends a little time in different places with different characters to keep it all going. Otherwise we would spend time with the main character and wonder what was happening at the wall or K would show up at the wall and we wouldn't have a clue as to the struggles that occurred there. I enjoyed this story just as much as the other ones and couldn't put it down.

Good Read

Not as good as the first two. I sure hope that the next two improve. There was to much of the nonessential in this book that was distracting. Although I really like the most of the Green Riders and the premiss that they are based on. Personally, felt like the future Queen unworthy and whinny. Sure hope that the love triangle between the Green Rider, King and Queen is resolved in a manner that doesn't let the cast system dictate it's outcome.

I find myself really liking the King. Can't really see where the 2nd Empire plot is going. I am sure it has to do with the fall of the wall. Alton's plight is discouraging because he showed such promise.

Will see what happens. Have to admit I am hooked on the Green Riders and their interesting characteristics. Hope this review helps without too many spoilers.
