I am so excited!! The wait is way worth it! This book is going to be my end of IB exams present : so excited.

May 15th can't come faster! Britain had really changed it up. But then I was like Where was this going, and was anything actually happening? So for the whole middle part of the book I wallowed in disappointed - which didn't stop me from reading, but still, disappointed. This is all to say, that while Mirror Sight is a bit of a let-down considering the lofty expectations with which I regarded it, it is necessary to read it in order to get to the ending.

And the ending is awesome, great, fantastic worth reading pages. But especially Mirror Sight makes Karigan grow as a person and as a charater, leading to me to believe that the NEXT book is going to be awesome!! Apr 07, Kaylan Senour rated it it was ok.

As a stand-alone book, I felt like this was a good book. The writing was solid, the story was engaging and there were some interesting twists and turns. You find out very quickly what our intrepid hero was stuck in at the end of book 4, and the story is off and running from there. Why did I give it 2 stars then, you ask?

Because this isn't a Green Rider book. Karigan isn't the strong-willed, has to survive character we've grown to love. She isn't a strong female lead. She is stifled a lot in this As a stand-alone book, I felt like this was a good book. She is stifled a lot in this book, and she spends a lot of time being acted upon rather than acting. Not to mention this book somehow manages to throw away everything we've grown to know and love in the last 4 books.

And being honest, neither of those 2 characters play much of any active role in the book. Amberhill is responsible for the current state of affairs, but we don't actually meet him until the last pages and even then we barely see him. Lhean has a few pages scattered here and there Fastion's appearance in the late book is welcome, but oddly done. Its nice that he is around, he's one of my favorite support characters, buuuut We get very brief glimpses back into the present time and what is happening with the riders and Captain Mapstone and Zachary, we get what was it- 2 pages about Alton and Estral?

Estora is on the page for approximately one page And then, at the end- the new characters that we have grown to have some fondness for -are gone. They don't exist anymore. We will likely never see them again. Everything that took place in that world has no meaning on the present time. The relationships that were developed, the actions We know that she gets to her loves, and we know that they awaken the dragons again and the dragons start destroying everything Was that all we needed to know?

They were destroying the world? What about Mornhaven the Black? Does he survive Yholande's attentions? I don't know. That whole scene was such an afterthought in feeling that I almost forgot it even made it into the book. But yea.

I think that's what bothers me. This isn't a Green Rider book. This is a great Steampunk novel with an interesting setting, with characters that I really did grow to like- that if she had written this as a start of a new series in a different time with a different name for the lead, this could have been awesome.

It just did absolutely nothing to further the story line of the Green Rider series. I mean, we've learned that we have 2 years until Amberhill has his problem with Mornhaven. I don't think so. It could have been accomplished in a shorter way that allowed for more progress in the story we were expecting. Its just not a Green Rider book. I feel like someone else said it best; this is a filler arc like what you see in Anime shows when they're letting the books catch up to the series.

You have some familiarity with the cast of characters, it is enjoyable.. At all. It could have happened or not, and it wont make any difference. The heroics of those characters is for basically nothing, view spoiler [and while it appears that through Yates' efforts Karigan will remember them I'm not sad I read it, because when I stopped thinking of it like the 5th book in Green Rider and instead started thinking about it like a Steampunk novel with some familiar people, it was enjoyable.

I just really don't see how it can be considered the 5th book in the series. But assuming the next book actually includes the characters we've been developing and enjoying for the last 16 years and picks up the threads of those plotlines May 12, Natalie rated it did not like it.

This book does NOT belong in the series. I'm so disappointed. To become so emotionally engrossed in a set of characters. It seems like the author went on a little field trip, learned about mills and hydro-power, and then felt the need to write a book about it. This seems like a filler book and a huge waste of my time. Totally bummed. Apr 25, Katie Thornton-K. I have waited 2 years for this book to come out, and I ended up getting it early.

I read the whole thing in 24 hours. I laughed, I cried, I laughed some more, screamed, tossed the book down, and kept reading. Kristen Britain is a brilliant writer, and this book was one of her best. Karigan was sent to the future and finds herself in a very unfamiliar place, but the bad guys are all-too-familiar.

She goes through a lot to fight for both her freedom and to return to her own time. The ending was so I have waited 2 years for this book to come out, and I ended up getting it early. The ending was so much better than Blackveil, promising us more adventures with Karigan and the rest of the Green Riders.

Mar 03, Ali rated it did not like it Recommends it for: No one!!!!! Shelves: this-should-have-never-gotten-publi. Warning: This is a blunt review and includes a very long rant. Not for the easily offended. Like so many other reviewers I had been a fan of the Green Rider series from the beginning. The first book was so very, very promising, and while Ms. Britain's writing style is not the greatest the book was enjoyable and I liked the characters for the most part.

The second book was equally good. The author expanded the world decently and added in more history and characters. I enjoyed it, and it seemed to Warning: This is a blunt review and includes a very long rant. I enjoyed it, and it seemed to confirm where the books were going enough that I was delighted to keep up with the series. Book three, however, was a step down from the first two, but still decent.

Characters that really shouldn't have been given too much time started popping up in annoyingly high amounts. Britain's PoV changes were always, in my mind, exceptionally weak, and High King's Tomb really showed it. Blackveil was like sliding down a cliff. Gone was the Green Rider aspect in the series and instead of tying up -any- part of the series more random characters were added, minor characters got wayyyy too much time, and the PoV shifts got worse.

Despite all this I had invested a great deal of time into the series and was determined to see it to the end. After this book though? I'm not certain I ever want to touch this series again. This book was a waste of words, a disaster, an embarrassment for both the author and anyone else who let it see the light of day, and a big let down for a bunch of fans. It was decidedly not worth the money to buy, and thank goodness I am a fast reader as I only lost a couple of hours of my life on this piece of trash.

I haven't added most of the books I've read to my goodreads account because a too much work and b I generally forget I have this account. That being said this is the -first- series I've been involved in that has delivered this much of a disappointment. Never before have I considered not finishing a series off of a book mid-way through it. I've had series I've hated that I've read for friends, but those I hated from the get-go. This series I actually liked. I could have overlooked that as it was kind of a random thing to have happen given where this book went.

From then on though This was a time traveling crappy attempt at some kind of steampunk writing and it just kept getting worse! First off Karigan seems to have lost herself somewhere in transit. The character I knew and liked was tough, stubborn, creative, and unwilling to let anything stop her. She also had a pretty solid head on her shoulders. This one? On top of that Ms. Britain finally decided the book needed of all the stupid things a 'romance' for the main character.

Okay fine, I'll deal with a romance if it's done right. Enter male chauvinist pig and eventually Karigan and said idiot fall "in love". Now we have our head-strong previously character going head-over-heels with the first male she had sex with like some weak-brained fifteen year old girl, awesome I have news for you people Worthless character that he is is the main villain with his split personalities.

Britain tried to hide it was Amberhill from her readers and I laughed at the attempt. It was no secret. I had it pinned down wayyyy before Karigan ever found out. But what happens basically in these several hundred pages?

Karigan travels to the future, meets some people, falls in 'love', gets pregnant apparently yeah Add in the fact it was always just a "potential" since the time line wasn't right for it to be an actual living baby and I don't think there is an intelligent answer for that question , wanders around. Does more wandering. Meets more people. Oh finds the "hidden" tombs.

Does some more wandering. Ends up in the Emperor's path. And then leaves. So then Karigan returns home and you'd think things would kind of get back to normal? Instead you have the over-emotional, and mostly insane Karigan moping more about the fact she can't remember her stupid male chauvinist "love-of-her-life" and she pretty much just mopes on that. She can't tell anyone anything about her time in the future really because the "gods" are preventing her from telling her people anything other than there is this device that "might" be useful against the so-called dragons that Amberhill will summon.

Oh and she can mention Amberhill. That's about as much use as she is. Totally worth seven hundred pages of nothing to get that Add to this the fact Ms. Britain cannot keep to her own rules about time travel and it just adds to the absolute fail of this book. Somehow Yates travels with Karigan to the future.

Despite the fact she leaves before he is dead. There is a very high lack of other ghosts around in the future. And his journal wouldn't have been able to come with him. So Yates somehow tags along. Draws pictures of everyone. And then when Karigan gets back said pictures are "magically" added to his book so she can remember everyone. Given the rule is only old things can move forward not new things go back right there Yate's magical drawings are impossible.

It is pathetic how that was used so Karigan would remember the stupid characters we were stuck with for a whole book basically. I'm not entirely certain what the point of the book was. It didn't make the story really go forward. We still have not tied up any loose ends the wall, the building of an alliance, Estral, Grandmother, any of the Second Empire, Amberhill-who-needs-do-die Just more random crap added.

Not to mention the PoV shifts got worse, the writing style got worse, the characters all seemed to regress in maturity and age Was the editor drunk at the time? But yeah. Single biggest disappointment in all my years of reading. Hundreds of books So if you're looking for something that has nothing to do with the series other than characters with the same names with major personality shifts and pages and pages of just nothing including a fifteen year old's version of romance Congratulations, you've found the book!

I'm still trying to forget I actually read this. It's been over a year though and I am just now posting this review so you can see how well that's gone. This book has also managed to spook me from trying new series. If this piece of trash is what people believe is good fantasy then I'm terrified of what else is being published.

Apr 07, Myra rated it it was ok. This was such a disappointment to me. This book read as a filler book, a very long, drawn out filler book. I felt that the other world was interesting but it shouldn't have taken up the whole story. There was hardly any mention of the supporting characters that I have come to love, it was as if their stories were put on hold. I think that the relationship with Cade was abrupt and felt flat. I never felt like I had a connection with Cade. When I read about the baby I was dumbfounded and couldn't figure out how a baby could be woven into the storyline.

I was glad that it went away. I wish she and Zachary would sit down and talk about what they feel. I am getting tired of the back and forth. I will keep reading the series but I will try not to get my hopes up so high. I just, I just can't. I don't understand any of this book. It is unrelated to the other Green Rider series which we have all come to love. Well the jokes on us. From the very first pages we were suddenly questioning everything, our excitement slowly growing dimmer with every word.

I gave it three stars because, yes it was well written and would have been an I just, I just can't. She could've just written a stand alone book that would have had us all raving and praising her, but no. I am still sitting here after just finishing reading the book, stupefied and wondering, what trick is Kristen Britain going to pull out of her sleeve next? Karigan suddenly gets pregnant, but some tragic accident makes her miscarriage?

What about a love interest that lasts more than a couple chapters and she actually has a chance with? When I posted by review of Blackveil, I was warned that the next one was a complete change of gears. In fact, I had one reader suggest that I skip it entirely, and move straight to Firebrand.

Having read - and enjoyed - Mirror Sight, I can see why some readers where thrown by what Kristen Britain did, and can understand why they might have been unsettled by the change of setting and the shift in genre. The story opens two centuries after the fall of Sacoridia, in a Victorian era dystopia ruled ov When I posted by review of Blackveil, I was warned that the next one was a complete change of gears. The story opens two centuries after the fall of Sacoridia, in a Victorian era dystopia ruled over by the Emperor of the Serpentine Empire.

It's a dark, dirty, industrialized world, one where magic is nearly exhausted, and where creepy mechanical overseers monitor rebellious thoughts, words, and actions. What immediately caught my interest was the archaeological excavations of the Sacoridia that Karigan called home. There are petty treasure hunters looking for historical artifacts to sell on the black market, and big-scale digs looking to recover evidence of magic and magical devices.

Karigan literally comes to this world because of tomb raiding, waking up inside a stone sarcophagus, and then coming under the care of one of the era's most prominent archaeologists. It's not just a setting, though, it's also a story. Britain tells a story of oppression, paranoia, resistance, and rebellion, exploring the conflict between genders, classes, families, and eras. It's a slow-moving story, and one in which Karigan spends considerable time laid up and drugged, but it's fascinating to see the consequences of having lost the war against Mornhavon.

Denied her magic, no longer a Green Rider, and isolated from friends and allies, she is more human here than ever before - and that vulnerability opens up some interesting story threads, including a pivotal romance. While that aspect seems to have some readers groaning and rolling their eyes, I thought the romance worked, and the echoes of it in the final chapters are powerful.

This volume also reveals what happened to Lord Amberhill, and his ties to this dark future are interesting. I'm not entirely sure I liked his role, and I'm still not sure whether Britain had an arc defined for him or whether she's winging it, but it makes for an interesting read.

Mirror Sight is very much a solo Karigan adventure, more urban fantasy than epic fantasy, but I enjoyed the approach and thought it made for an interesting tale. Jan 29, Dana Smith rated it it was amazing. Cant wait to read what happens next!!!!! Jul 23, Kathylill rated it it was ok Shelves: , high-fantasy-romance , arc-i-would-sell-my-soul-for. What had it all been for? Why write a 11k Kindle Book, more than double the size of a normal book if it doens't move the overall story of the series forward?

Why of all things would the author of a medieval fantasy feel the need to write a post-industrial steampunk without fantasy, in the middle of the series? And why would she now focus on romance and introduce the reader to an unwanted by the fans of the series new love interest if before the romance was only a minor romanti And why would she now focus on romance and introduce the reader to an unwanted by the fans of the series new love interest if before the romance was only a minor romantic subplot that fans of the series were adoring.

I am totaly baffled. I do get that authors sometimes write a fill-in that doesn't add much to the series but instead focus more on character development. This is not the case here. Mirror Sight is all about an alternative romance without a future. As this book takes place years in the future a horrific future and Karigan has to go back in time to try to change the future she has seen, it is quite clear that Britain will have to kill the love interest in the end.

And it's back to Zachary. There is simply no sense to this romance at all. And above all else this romance is just not believable to me. Cade is inferior to Karigan in every aspect. He is kind of naive and unexperienced, making dumb decisions, not thinking things through like with the rebellion.

He acts the big shot thinking of himself as a Weapon but in fact he can't hold himself in a fight against Karigan. So Karigan starts to teach him. At Dr. Silk's party it is clear that he has no finesse and can't fit in. He acts like a dumb bull. To put it in other words: I don't really get what Karigan could have found attractive in Cade at all, apart from his nice body. The romance fell short for me. And above all else: Just because they have sex doens't mean they have to be in love. But Britain really does turn the story this way because after her first sex with Cade, Karigan talks to Raven about loving Cade when up until this moment she only ever thought about mutual attraction and not wanting to be lonely.

Another point in this story that I just couldn't tolerate was blind adherence to monarchy and the royal heir without a reason. In the previous books Zachary always talked about ending the monarchy in favor of democracy and now years in the future the opposition to the evil Emperor is adhering to Arhys, the many-times over granddaughter of Zachary and last heir of the royal line?

That stupid girl is the worst kind of shallow-brained nightmare brat you could imagine. And everybody just comes to her defense. To make matters worse when Karigan returns from the future where she was pregnant she no longer is in her own timeline but instead the Queen now bears twins instead of only one child? Why does the author fuck with my head? A true Weapon, dying right in front of him. Tell her I died well.

It seems strange to give a 3 star rating to this installment which I didn't like and wished I could un-read. But I am such a fan of this series overall that I couldn't bring myself to rate this lower. In the end I left it at 3. I was disappointed at the world of MS. No question that Britain is a world building machine heh and this book was written well and kept me reading despite It seems strange to give a 3 star rating to this installment which I didn't like and wished I could un-read.

No question that Britain is a world building machine heh and this book was written well and kept me reading despite my disappointment. But I was disappointed I may have mentioned that already. Perhaps it was because where K. Perhaps that was the point. Regardless, I feel bereft. Realistically the chances of this are slim in the world as it is and with them being the people they are. Don't get me wrong - I would be happy if E.

So maybe my disappointment is due to the the weight of all the years I've vested in waiting for the series to develop I could have raised a couple of teenagers by now if I were inclined towards childbearing. The point being I've seen how small details in one book reappear and fully manifest in later books so I know Britain has the patience, the attention to detail, and the sensitivity to let the story unfold.

That sense of a story unfolding naturally was missing for me in the r'ship that is introduced in MS. It seemed shoe-horned in, impatient, imperfectly developed, rushed. C to me felt like an underdeveloped character - convenient to resolve somewhat K's aloneness but as a character and a counterpoint to the weight that Z brings to the table, C did not measure up.

It might be the fault of the proscribed world he lives in. A world by the way I never came to care about, and was so alien to the series I wondered if this should have been a short story or a GR4. This in turn made me wonder whether Britain's original story arc was for a 4 book series, and whether being contracted for 8 books or however many mucked up the story as it was originally conceived. This may or may not be so - there were plenty of threads in HK or BV that have yet to be explored I am still intrigued by what it potentially could mean that K.

Meanwhile, I know this is Britain's story to tell as and how she will. Jul 22, Tammie rated it liked it Shelves: fantasy , adult , adult-fantasy , high-fantasy , series , owned-hard-cover , time-travel-and-time-loops. Where to begin I was extremely happy to be reading Mirror Sight.

I've waited for 3 years for it to be released. There were major cliffhangers and plot threads just waiting to be resolved or to be moved forward even just a little. Unfortunately none of that happened in this book, well with the exception that we find out where Karigan ended up at the end of Blackveil, and we find out what happens with Amberhill.

But then again it is nullified at the end of the book because it hasn't happened yet Where to begin But then again it is nullified at the end of the book because it hasn't happened yet and likely will all change. So with a few small exceptions, this book is mostly irrelevant to the rest of the series. This was like one of those TV episodes where one of the characters finds themselves stuck in an alternate time or place and makes a life for themselves there only to have to leave and go back to reality.

It's a well used trope in TV and books and I wasn't crazy about it being used here. My biggest problem besides no real plot progression for the overall series is that I'm not even sure who I was reading about in this book. Karigan was so out of character throughout the whole thing. I had already figured out that she would most likely be thrown forward in time from the ending of Blackveil, but what I didn't expect was for her to stay there throughout the whole book and be so un-Karigan like.

Where was the feisty Karigan? Sure she had her moments, but not enough. This resulted in a very unsatisfying read. Also, so many of the regular characters were absent. We got very little of Zachary, nothing of many others. It was just a huge let down after waiting so long. The characters we did get in the future world were ok, but I never really cared about any of them. Cade was an alright guy, but the relationship that developed there felt forced.

There was also a lack of action in this book that made it very dull. It does finally pick up a little in that aspect, but the tone and world of this novel is so different from the others in the series it was too little too late. I will say that despite my disappointment the book deserves 3 stars because the world building and the writing were excellent, even if it did feel out of place in the Green Rider series.

Had they been characters from another series I probably would have liked the characters and the adventure and would have had no complaints. I will still be reading more of this series because I'm convinced this was just one of those times where the author got sidetracked by subplots. Robert Jordan comes to mind. By the way this ended, I think the next book will be back on track Review also posted at Writings of a Reader Yes, it takes you away from your typical, medieval-inspired fantasy.

But what Kristen Britain has done is just remarkable. My first read has been a few years ago, so I remembered the high-level storyline of this book, but not the details. I knew what to expect going into Mirror Sight this time, so I decided to spend more time on looking for the details that relate to the bigger story of the series. And the way Kristen Britain has connected it with the series is just brilliant.

I just love her style. Everything Karigan had to go through in Mirror Sight had me aching, weeping waterfalls… , and hoping. Nov 06, Eric Allen rated it really liked it. The first book came out either when I was at the end of High School or beginning of College, and I received a copy of it through my book club as one of the two monthly featured selections.

I loved the book then, but never kept track of the series between the several I was following at the time. Last summer I received a review request from a Goodreads member who wanted to hear my opinion on this series, and especially Mirror Sight, the most recent release. I was surprised to find that the book I enjoyed way back when, was actually the beginning of a series. Over the last few months I've read and reviewed the series until now, when I've finally come to Mirror Sight. I have heard nothing but bad things about this book.

I don't think I have ever heard anyone say a single positive thing about it. And considering the fact that I was not really all that impressed with books 3 and 4 of the series, I went into this one with quite a bit of dread. But, you know what, I actually really liked this one. I thought it was one of the better books of the series. And before that torch-bearing mob gathering over there starts hurling pitch forks in my direction, let me tell you why.

After shattering the looking mask at the end of Blackveil, Karigan G'ladheon was thrown two hundred years into a bleak future where Sacoridia has been crushed by the Serpentine Empire and its people enslaved. She must find her way back to her time in order to prevent the horrors she sees from coming to pass. The Good? Okay, the reason I like this series, is very simple. I like Karigan. I think she's fun and awesome. I enjoy reading stories about HER. And since she's the main protagonist of the series, you'd think that wouldn't be a problem In book 3, she went on a busywork errand unimportant to the plot in any way whatsoever, which put her at the right place at the right time to save the day, rather than having her central to the plot, and book 4 focused on so much other unimportant crap that she barely had any screen time at all.

Little wonder that I was not very impressed with those two books. But Mirror Sight is almost entirely about Karigan. She's basically the only one that got sent to the future, and so the story centers around her, and I really liked that. I mean, is it so much to ask that a story about a particular character's adventures actually be about that character and her adventures? I liked the setting too, the bleak future where everything has been destroyed and rebuilt in the new emperor's image.

I liked seeing Karigan trying to reconcile all of it to the world she knows and loves, and having gone from a place and time of relative equality and freedom to a place where women are treated as simple-minded and good for nothing but breeding. Now, I'm no expert on feminism or anything, and usually, speaking about issues of feminism presents me with many wonderful and various opportunities to put my foot in my mouth, but I thought Karigan's reactions to the way women are treated in the future were quite well thought out and executed.

I know I'd be horrified to go from my life as it is now, to a time and place where I'm thought of as less than a fourth class citizen, and barely one step above a slave. I thought that the separation of Karigan from everything she knows and loves presented her with many opportunities to grow as a character that she might not otherwise have come across in her everyday life.

I enjoyed watching her work through things, convert people to her way of thinking, and find her way back home. That's what I read the series for, to see her do awesome things and solve her own problems. The bad? At first he was an extraordinarily cliche douchebag that kept being shoehorned into the plot in places where he really didn't belong AT ALL.

When that didn't work, the author made up a sidestory for him to go off and adventure on his own, which was extremely boring and pointless because it didn't have anything to do with ANYTHING ELSE happening in the book in any way. And here, view spoiler [ he's the friggen immortal emperor? I haven't seen an author try so hard to make an awful character work since freaking God Emperor of Dune. I hate the character, and I hate how the author keeps trying to make him relevant when he's not I get that SHE may enjoy him as the writer, but when he literally serves no purpose whatsoever to the plot at all except to be there, maybe it's time to either just remove him and stop trying, or rework everything about him so that he actually has some relevance to ANYTHING.

The Ugly? My biggest problem with this book is the love story. It's so pointless, forced and unnecessary. This is what I like to call a Single Serving Romance. You see this a lot in TV series and movies. It's where a character will fall in love with and have some sort of romance with another, and at the end, the love story ends, the characters go their separate ways, and it's never spoken of again, doesn't leave any lasting impact on either the characters, or the story, and really serves no purpose whatsoever except to be a love story for the sake of having a love story.

I don't mind love stories. I actually kind of like it when characters have a truly meaningful romance. But when it's just a love story to be a love story, I absolutely hate it. Not every story needs a love story in it, and this one didn't. Especially considering all of the attachments that Karigan already has. She's in what, a love septangle back in the past now? This love story was unnecessary, and really rather uncomfortable for me, because it makes Karigan look very shallow.

The sort of character that will fall in love with the nearest member of the opposite gender when away from the ones she truly loves. But that is, of course, the male perspective on it. I found out long ago that if you want to know what women think of something, the best way is to ask a woman. I know, it sounds crazy to some men out there like the entirety of the US Congress , but women actually have opinions about things, and if you ask them, they'll be more than happy to share them with you.

So, let me ask, Ladies, what did you think of this love story? Did you think it was pointless, shallow and contrived, a love story just for the sake of having a love story, rather than one that is meaningful and lasting? Did you like it? Somewhere between? Did you think it worked, but would have been better in a different story with a character that wasn't already entangled in a spagetti bowl of romantic plotlines?

I honestly would like to hear your take on it, and I promise I will treat your opinion with all due respect. Despite hearing nothing but terrible things about this book, I honestly really liked it. I'm not as attached to this series as many other fans are, having only just picked it up, and I didn't have to wait several years for this book after the massive cliffhanger ending of Blackveil.

I totally understand the hatred that this book gets from longtime readers. I know what it's like to be left on a horrible cliffhanger ending for several years waiting for the next volume of a series, only to have the author decide to change things up and write something of a side adventure rather than continuing on as I wanted.

Believe me I understand where the frustration and anger is coming from on this book. But I enjoyed it quite a bit, because for the first time since book 2 the series actually focused on the main character of the series. I concede that this book is probably not for everyone, and it can likely be skipped over with only reading a plot summary when book 6 comes out, but I had a lot of fun with it. Check out my other reviews.

Mar 17, Reem Jaber rated it it was ok. I am tired, to say the least. I am tired of people male or female conflating oppression of women with how much they're wearing. I am tired of a veil or scarf being a symbol of oppression. I am tired. Are there not other ways of showing the oppression of women without turning them us int I am tired, to say the least. Are there not other ways of showing the oppression of women without turning them us into faceless, nameless, mindless automatons with no personality?

Women are oppressed, undeniably, both in real and fictional societies, but this particular matter? It's just so And yes, women who cover DO have personalities and feelings and thoughts and desires just like ones who do not, thank you very much And I read fantasy as a sort of escapism, and I know I can't escape misogyny so much as that - I have read A Song of Ice and Fire, incidentally - but veiling is the sort of thing that "feminists" like to take and run away with on why Muslim women need to be "liberated".

Excuse me, but women can be just as liberated while covered, and it is not the way they are dressed that is the problem, but the patriarchal framework within society that allows the oppression to occur. And within ALL societies, I might add.

Need I point out the way Estora has been treated by the men in her life, in Karigan's Sacoridia? All right, now that I have griped about the single most annoying thing in this book, I can talk about the less-but-still annoying facets.

First or second of all, this was a loss of momentum to the overall plot of the series. There was plenty ongoing with medieval ish Sacoridia that it was entirely unnecessary to have an entire filler NOVEL in the middle of a series with very few details of what was happening in Karigan's own time.

Pointless plot much? What did we get, then, other than torturing Karigan? As a fan of fantasy novels, I am a firm believer in making your protagonists miserable, but only if it serves a purpose, for some lesson learned for them or to contribute to the overall plot, but this just seemed to be a trauma conga line for Karigan the entire time. And a very anticlimactic one.

We get it, Silk Sr. It was very cheesy too, which I should expect at this point. It's not representation if they don't even show up on the page beyond a bit of ink used to spell a name. Another note on the romance, Zachary has somehow managed to become the most irritating character in this series.

How does Laren deal with him? Look, I'm just tired of men deciding that because they love a woman they have a say in what she can and can't do with her own life and this is BEFORE putting a ring on it, so to speak, which makes it MUCH worse in my opinion. If this bothers you too, read Brandon Sanderson's stuff. The men don't stop the women from doing anything - at least, not for the usual "it's dangerous, don't do it" - in his books, and it is VERY refreshing.

Anyway, maybe as a standalone the book the plot would have worked. I would have liked to see more female characters with personalities than Lorine and the housekeeper whose name escapes me, like maybe another "unconventional" woman who bucks at society's restrictions and maybe not the veil so much as the fact they can't own property or study at a university , because look: if your revolution isn't for EVERYONE and doesn't INVOLVE everyone, including women, then it is not a good revolution.

Yeah, Professor? May 07, K rated it it was amazing. I'm still in absolute denial about Cade but there you go probably not going to change for another years. I do believe that by seeing this difference Karigan will have renewed determination against Mornhaven. Was the book painful in some places?

Hoo boy yes. Did it show some major almost too much character growth? You betcha. One thing I really really really enjoyed was how much Karigan time we got. I'm fine with some alternating POVs but I like a central character. These past books, especially in THKT and Blackveil, we've been skipping around to other doings in the kingdom and following other characters. That's never really interested me. Those two books in particular felt very bloated to me because all I wanted to read about was Karigan.

I know some people say Mirror Sight is bloated and feels like a filler book because several things in Blackveil were left unanswered but I personally believe this book works very well by itself and has its own significance in the series. What's that saying about walking in someone else's shoes? Is she still in the world she remembers, or has the magical explosion transported her somewhere completely different?

To find out, she must first win free of her prison— before it becomes her grave. And should she succeed, will she be walking straight into a trap created by Mornhavon himself? Mirror Sight is the highly-anticipated fifth installment of the Green Rider series. She lives in an adobe house in the high desert of the American Southwest beneath the big sky and among lizards, hummingbirds, and tumbleweeds. Kristen can be found online at kristenbritain.

But, doing unwanted nothing. Scroll requires opened on page include. Passwords cannot is be sent the management web least infrastructure.

She is stifled a lot in this As a stand-alone book, I felt like this was a good book. She is stifled a lot in this book, and she spends a lot of time being acted upon rather than acting. Not to mention this book somehow manages to throw away everything we've grown to know and love in the last 4 books. And being honest, neither of those 2 characters play much of any active role in the book. Amberhill is responsible for the current state of affairs, but we don't actually meet him until the last pages and even then we barely see him.

Lhean has a few pages scattered here and there Fastion's appearance in the late book is welcome, but oddly done. Its nice that he is around, he's one of my favorite support characters, buuuut We get very brief glimpses back into the present time and what is happening with the riders and Captain Mapstone and Zachary, we get what was it- 2 pages about Alton and Estral? Estora is on the page for approximately one page And then, at the end- the new characters that we have grown to have some fondness for -are gone.

They don't exist anymore. We will likely never see them again. Everything that took place in that world has no meaning on the present time. The relationships that were developed, the actions We know that she gets to her loves, and we know that they awaken the dragons again and the dragons start destroying everything Was that all we needed to know?

They were destroying the world? What about Mornhaven the Black? Does he survive Yholande's attentions? I don't know. That whole scene was such an afterthought in feeling that I almost forgot it even made it into the book. But yea. I think that's what bothers me. This isn't a Green Rider book. This is a great Steampunk novel with an interesting setting, with characters that I really did grow to like- that if she had written this as a start of a new series in a different time with a different name for the lead, this could have been awesome.

It just did absolutely nothing to further the story line of the Green Rider series. I mean, we've learned that we have 2 years until Amberhill has his problem with Mornhaven. I don't think so. It could have been accomplished in a shorter way that allowed for more progress in the story we were expecting. Its just not a Green Rider book. I feel like someone else said it best; this is a filler arc like what you see in Anime shows when they're letting the books catch up to the series.

You have some familiarity with the cast of characters, it is enjoyable.. At all. It could have happened or not, and it wont make any difference. The heroics of those characters is for basically nothing, view spoiler [and while it appears that through Yates' efforts Karigan will remember them I'm not sad I read it, because when I stopped thinking of it like the 5th book in Green Rider and instead started thinking about it like a Steampunk novel with some familiar people, it was enjoyable.

I just really don't see how it can be considered the 5th book in the series. But assuming the next book actually includes the characters we've been developing and enjoying for the last 16 years and picks up the threads of those plotlines May 12, Natalie rated it did not like it. This book does NOT belong in the series. I'm so disappointed. To become so emotionally engrossed in a set of characters. It seems like the author went on a little field trip, learned about mills and hydro-power, and then felt the need to write a book about it.

This seems like a filler book and a huge waste of my time. Totally bummed. Apr 25, Katie Thornton-K. I have waited 2 years for this book to come out, and I ended up getting it early. I read the whole thing in 24 hours. I laughed, I cried, I laughed some more, screamed, tossed the book down, and kept reading. Kristen Britain is a brilliant writer, and this book was one of her best. Karigan was sent to the future and finds herself in a very unfamiliar place, but the bad guys are all-too-familiar.

She goes through a lot to fight for both her freedom and to return to her own time. The ending was so I have waited 2 years for this book to come out, and I ended up getting it early. The ending was so much better than Blackveil, promising us more adventures with Karigan and the rest of the Green Riders.

Mar 03, Ali rated it did not like it Recommends it for: No one!!!!! Shelves: this-should-have-never-gotten-publi. Warning: This is a blunt review and includes a very long rant. Not for the easily offended. Like so many other reviewers I had been a fan of the Green Rider series from the beginning.

The first book was so very, very promising, and while Ms. Britain's writing style is not the greatest the book was enjoyable and I liked the characters for the most part. The second book was equally good. The author expanded the world decently and added in more history and characters.

I enjoyed it, and it seemed to Warning: This is a blunt review and includes a very long rant. I enjoyed it, and it seemed to confirm where the books were going enough that I was delighted to keep up with the series. Book three, however, was a step down from the first two, but still decent.

Characters that really shouldn't have been given too much time started popping up in annoyingly high amounts. Britain's PoV changes were always, in my mind, exceptionally weak, and High King's Tomb really showed it.

Blackveil was like sliding down a cliff. Gone was the Green Rider aspect in the series and instead of tying up -any- part of the series more random characters were added, minor characters got wayyyy too much time, and the PoV shifts got worse.

Despite all this I had invested a great deal of time into the series and was determined to see it to the end. After this book though? I'm not certain I ever want to touch this series again. This book was a waste of words, a disaster, an embarrassment for both the author and anyone else who let it see the light of day, and a big let down for a bunch of fans. It was decidedly not worth the money to buy, and thank goodness I am a fast reader as I only lost a couple of hours of my life on this piece of trash.

I haven't added most of the books I've read to my goodreads account because a too much work and b I generally forget I have this account. That being said this is the -first- series I've been involved in that has delivered this much of a disappointment. Never before have I considered not finishing a series off of a book mid-way through it. I've had series I've hated that I've read for friends, but those I hated from the get-go.

This series I actually liked. I could have overlooked that as it was kind of a random thing to have happen given where this book went. From then on though This was a time traveling crappy attempt at some kind of steampunk writing and it just kept getting worse! First off Karigan seems to have lost herself somewhere in transit. The character I knew and liked was tough, stubborn, creative, and unwilling to let anything stop her.

She also had a pretty solid head on her shoulders. This one? On top of that Ms. Britain finally decided the book needed of all the stupid things a 'romance' for the main character. Okay fine, I'll deal with a romance if it's done right. Enter male chauvinist pig and eventually Karigan and said idiot fall "in love". Now we have our head-strong previously character going head-over-heels with the first male she had sex with like some weak-brained fifteen year old girl, awesome I have news for you people Worthless character that he is is the main villain with his split personalities.

Britain tried to hide it was Amberhill from her readers and I laughed at the attempt. It was no secret. I had it pinned down wayyyy before Karigan ever found out. But what happens basically in these several hundred pages? Karigan travels to the future, meets some people, falls in 'love', gets pregnant apparently yeah Add in the fact it was always just a "potential" since the time line wasn't right for it to be an actual living baby and I don't think there is an intelligent answer for that question , wanders around.

Does more wandering. Meets more people. Oh finds the "hidden" tombs. Does some more wandering. Ends up in the Emperor's path. And then leaves. So then Karigan returns home and you'd think things would kind of get back to normal?

Instead you have the over-emotional, and mostly insane Karigan moping more about the fact she can't remember her stupid male chauvinist "love-of-her-life" and she pretty much just mopes on that. She can't tell anyone anything about her time in the future really because the "gods" are preventing her from telling her people anything other than there is this device that "might" be useful against the so-called dragons that Amberhill will summon.

Oh and she can mention Amberhill. That's about as much use as she is. Totally worth seven hundred pages of nothing to get that Add to this the fact Ms. Britain cannot keep to her own rules about time travel and it just adds to the absolute fail of this book. Somehow Yates travels with Karigan to the future. Despite the fact she leaves before he is dead. There is a very high lack of other ghosts around in the future.

And his journal wouldn't have been able to come with him. So Yates somehow tags along. Draws pictures of everyone. And then when Karigan gets back said pictures are "magically" added to his book so she can remember everyone. Given the rule is only old things can move forward not new things go back right there Yate's magical drawings are impossible. It is pathetic how that was used so Karigan would remember the stupid characters we were stuck with for a whole book basically.

I'm not entirely certain what the point of the book was. It didn't make the story really go forward. We still have not tied up any loose ends the wall, the building of an alliance, Estral, Grandmother, any of the Second Empire, Amberhill-who-needs-do-die Just more random crap added. Not to mention the PoV shifts got worse, the writing style got worse, the characters all seemed to regress in maturity and age Was the editor drunk at the time?

But yeah. Single biggest disappointment in all my years of reading. Hundreds of books So if you're looking for something that has nothing to do with the series other than characters with the same names with major personality shifts and pages and pages of just nothing including a fifteen year old's version of romance Congratulations, you've found the book!

I'm still trying to forget I actually read this. It's been over a year though and I am just now posting this review so you can see how well that's gone. This book has also managed to spook me from trying new series. If this piece of trash is what people believe is good fantasy then I'm terrified of what else is being published. Apr 07, Myra rated it it was ok. This was such a disappointment to me. This book read as a filler book, a very long, drawn out filler book. I felt that the other world was interesting but it shouldn't have taken up the whole story.

There was hardly any mention of the supporting characters that I have come to love, it was as if their stories were put on hold. I think that the relationship with Cade was abrupt and felt flat. I never felt like I had a connection with Cade. When I read about the baby I was dumbfounded and couldn't figure out how a baby could be woven into the storyline. I was glad that it went away. I wish she and Zachary would sit down and talk about what they feel. I am getting tired of the back and forth.

I will keep reading the series but I will try not to get my hopes up so high. I just, I just can't. I don't understand any of this book. It is unrelated to the other Green Rider series which we have all come to love. Well the jokes on us. From the very first pages we were suddenly questioning everything, our excitement slowly growing dimmer with every word. I gave it three stars because, yes it was well written and would have been an I just, I just can't.

She could've just written a stand alone book that would have had us all raving and praising her, but no. I am still sitting here after just finishing reading the book, stupefied and wondering, what trick is Kristen Britain going to pull out of her sleeve next?

Karigan suddenly gets pregnant, but some tragic accident makes her miscarriage? What about a love interest that lasts more than a couple chapters and she actually has a chance with? When I posted by review of Blackveil, I was warned that the next one was a complete change of gears. In fact, I had one reader suggest that I skip it entirely, and move straight to Firebrand.

Having read - and enjoyed - Mirror Sight, I can see why some readers where thrown by what Kristen Britain did, and can understand why they might have been unsettled by the change of setting and the shift in genre. The story opens two centuries after the fall of Sacoridia, in a Victorian era dystopia ruled ov When I posted by review of Blackveil, I was warned that the next one was a complete change of gears. The story opens two centuries after the fall of Sacoridia, in a Victorian era dystopia ruled over by the Emperor of the Serpentine Empire.

It's a dark, dirty, industrialized world, one where magic is nearly exhausted, and where creepy mechanical overseers monitor rebellious thoughts, words, and actions. What immediately caught my interest was the archaeological excavations of the Sacoridia that Karigan called home. There are petty treasure hunters looking for historical artifacts to sell on the black market, and big-scale digs looking to recover evidence of magic and magical devices. Karigan literally comes to this world because of tomb raiding, waking up inside a stone sarcophagus, and then coming under the care of one of the era's most prominent archaeologists.

It's not just a setting, though, it's also a story. Britain tells a story of oppression, paranoia, resistance, and rebellion, exploring the conflict between genders, classes, families, and eras. It's a slow-moving story, and one in which Karigan spends considerable time laid up and drugged, but it's fascinating to see the consequences of having lost the war against Mornhavon.

Denied her magic, no longer a Green Rider, and isolated from friends and allies, she is more human here than ever before - and that vulnerability opens up some interesting story threads, including a pivotal romance. While that aspect seems to have some readers groaning and rolling their eyes, I thought the romance worked, and the echoes of it in the final chapters are powerful.

This volume also reveals what happened to Lord Amberhill, and his ties to this dark future are interesting. I'm not entirely sure I liked his role, and I'm still not sure whether Britain had an arc defined for him or whether she's winging it, but it makes for an interesting read. Mirror Sight is very much a solo Karigan adventure, more urban fantasy than epic fantasy, but I enjoyed the approach and thought it made for an interesting tale.

Jan 29, Dana Smith rated it it was amazing. Cant wait to read what happens next!!!!! Jul 23, Kathylill rated it it was ok Shelves: , high-fantasy-romance , arc-i-would-sell-my-soul-for. What had it all been for? Why write a 11k Kindle Book, more than double the size of a normal book if it doens't move the overall story of the series forward? Why of all things would the author of a medieval fantasy feel the need to write a post-industrial steampunk without fantasy, in the middle of the series?

And why would she now focus on romance and introduce the reader to an unwanted by the fans of the series new love interest if before the romance was only a minor romanti And why would she now focus on romance and introduce the reader to an unwanted by the fans of the series new love interest if before the romance was only a minor romantic subplot that fans of the series were adoring.

I am totaly baffled. I do get that authors sometimes write a fill-in that doesn't add much to the series but instead focus more on character development. This is not the case here. Mirror Sight is all about an alternative romance without a future. As this book takes place years in the future a horrific future and Karigan has to go back in time to try to change the future she has seen, it is quite clear that Britain will have to kill the love interest in the end.

And it's back to Zachary. There is simply no sense to this romance at all. And above all else this romance is just not believable to me. Cade is inferior to Karigan in every aspect. He is kind of naive and unexperienced, making dumb decisions, not thinking things through like with the rebellion. He acts the big shot thinking of himself as a Weapon but in fact he can't hold himself in a fight against Karigan.

So Karigan starts to teach him. At Dr. Silk's party it is clear that he has no finesse and can't fit in. He acts like a dumb bull. To put it in other words: I don't really get what Karigan could have found attractive in Cade at all, apart from his nice body. The romance fell short for me. And above all else: Just because they have sex doens't mean they have to be in love.

But Britain really does turn the story this way because after her first sex with Cade, Karigan talks to Raven about loving Cade when up until this moment she only ever thought about mutual attraction and not wanting to be lonely. Another point in this story that I just couldn't tolerate was blind adherence to monarchy and the royal heir without a reason. In the previous books Zachary always talked about ending the monarchy in favor of democracy and now years in the future the opposition to the evil Emperor is adhering to Arhys, the many-times over granddaughter of Zachary and last heir of the royal line?

That stupid girl is the worst kind of shallow-brained nightmare brat you could imagine. And everybody just comes to her defense. To make matters worse when Karigan returns from the future where she was pregnant she no longer is in her own timeline but instead the Queen now bears twins instead of only one child? Why does the author fuck with my head? A true Weapon, dying right in front of him. Tell her I died well. It seems strange to give a 3 star rating to this installment which I didn't like and wished I could un-read.

But I am such a fan of this series overall that I couldn't bring myself to rate this lower. In the end I left it at 3. I was disappointed at the world of MS. No question that Britain is a world building machine heh and this book was written well and kept me reading despite It seems strange to give a 3 star rating to this installment which I didn't like and wished I could un-read. No question that Britain is a world building machine heh and this book was written well and kept me reading despite my disappointment.

But I was disappointed I may have mentioned that already. Perhaps it was because where K. Perhaps that was the point. Regardless, I feel bereft. Realistically the chances of this are slim in the world as it is and with them being the people they are. Don't get me wrong - I would be happy if E. So maybe my disappointment is due to the the weight of all the years I've vested in waiting for the series to develop I could have raised a couple of teenagers by now if I were inclined towards childbearing.

The point being I've seen how small details in one book reappear and fully manifest in later books so I know Britain has the patience, the attention to detail, and the sensitivity to let the story unfold. That sense of a story unfolding naturally was missing for me in the r'ship that is introduced in MS. It seemed shoe-horned in, impatient, imperfectly developed, rushed. C to me felt like an underdeveloped character - convenient to resolve somewhat K's aloneness but as a character and a counterpoint to the weight that Z brings to the table, C did not measure up.

It might be the fault of the proscribed world he lives in. A world by the way I never came to care about, and was so alien to the series I wondered if this should have been a short story or a GR4. This in turn made me wonder whether Britain's original story arc was for a 4 book series, and whether being contracted for 8 books or however many mucked up the story as it was originally conceived. This may or may not be so - there were plenty of threads in HK or BV that have yet to be explored I am still intrigued by what it potentially could mean that K.

Meanwhile, I know this is Britain's story to tell as and how she will.

Where to begin I was extremely happy to be reading Mirror Sight. I've waited for 3 years for it to be released. There were major cliffhangers and plot threads just waiting to be resolved or to be moved forward even just a little.

Unfortunately none of that happened in this book, well with the exception that we find out where Karigan ended up at the end of Blackveil, and we find out what happens with Amberhill. But then again it is nullified at the end of the book because it hasn't happened yet Where to begin But then again it is nullified at the end of the book because it hasn't happened yet and likely will all change. So with a few small exceptions, this book is mostly irrelevant to the rest of the series.

This was like one of those TV episodes where one of the characters finds themselves stuck in an alternate time or place and makes a life for themselves there only to have to leave and go back to reality. It's a well used trope in TV and books and I wasn't crazy about it being used here. My biggest problem besides no real plot progression for the overall series is that I'm not even sure who I was reading about in this book. Karigan was so out of character throughout the whole thing.

I had already figured out that she would most likely be thrown forward in time from the ending of Blackveil, but what I didn't expect was for her to stay there throughout the whole book and be so un-Karigan like. Where was the feisty Karigan? Sure she had her moments, but not enough.

This resulted in a very unsatisfying read. Also, so many of the regular characters were absent. We got very little of Zachary, nothing of many others. It was just a huge let down after waiting so long. The characters we did get in the future world were ok, but I never really cared about any of them. Cade was an alright guy, but the relationship that developed there felt forced.

There was also a lack of action in this book that made it very dull. It does finally pick up a little in that aspect, but the tone and world of this novel is so different from the others in the series it was too little too late. I will say that despite my disappointment the book deserves 3 stars because the world building and the writing were excellent, even if it did feel out of place in the Green Rider series. Had they been characters from another series I probably would have liked the characters and the adventure and would have had no complaints.

I will still be reading more of this series because I'm convinced this was just one of those times where the author got sidetracked by subplots. Robert Jordan comes to mind. By the way this ended, I think the next book will be back on track Review also posted at Writings of a Reader Yes, it takes you away from your typical, medieval-inspired fantasy.

But what Kristen Britain has done is just remarkable. My first read has been a few years ago, so I remembered the high-level storyline of this book, but not the details. I knew what to expect going into Mirror Sight this time, so I decided to spend more time on looking for the details that relate to the bigger story of the series. And the way Kristen Britain has connected it with the series is just brilliant. I just love her style. Everything Karigan had to go through in Mirror Sight had me aching, weeping waterfalls… , and hoping.

Nov 06, Eric Allen rated it really liked it. The first book came out either when I was at the end of High School or beginning of College, and I received a copy of it through my book club as one of the two monthly featured selections. I loved the book then, but never kept track of the series between the several I was following at the time. Last summer I received a review request from a Goodreads member who wanted to hear my opinion on this series, and especially Mirror Sight, the most recent release.

I was surprised to find that the book I enjoyed way back when, was actually the beginning of a series. Over the last few months I've read and reviewed the series until now, when I've finally come to Mirror Sight. I have heard nothing but bad things about this book. I don't think I have ever heard anyone say a single positive thing about it.

And considering the fact that I was not really all that impressed with books 3 and 4 of the series, I went into this one with quite a bit of dread. But, you know what, I actually really liked this one. I thought it was one of the better books of the series. And before that torch-bearing mob gathering over there starts hurling pitch forks in my direction, let me tell you why.

After shattering the looking mask at the end of Blackveil, Karigan G'ladheon was thrown two hundred years into a bleak future where Sacoridia has been crushed by the Serpentine Empire and its people enslaved. She must find her way back to her time in order to prevent the horrors she sees from coming to pass. The Good? Okay, the reason I like this series, is very simple. I like Karigan. I think she's fun and awesome.

I enjoy reading stories about HER. And since she's the main protagonist of the series, you'd think that wouldn't be a problem In book 3, she went on a busywork errand unimportant to the plot in any way whatsoever, which put her at the right place at the right time to save the day, rather than having her central to the plot, and book 4 focused on so much other unimportant crap that she barely had any screen time at all.

Little wonder that I was not very impressed with those two books. But Mirror Sight is almost entirely about Karigan. She's basically the only one that got sent to the future, and so the story centers around her, and I really liked that. I mean, is it so much to ask that a story about a particular character's adventures actually be about that character and her adventures? I liked the setting too, the bleak future where everything has been destroyed and rebuilt in the new emperor's image.

I liked seeing Karigan trying to reconcile all of it to the world she knows and loves, and having gone from a place and time of relative equality and freedom to a place where women are treated as simple-minded and good for nothing but breeding. Now, I'm no expert on feminism or anything, and usually, speaking about issues of feminism presents me with many wonderful and various opportunities to put my foot in my mouth, but I thought Karigan's reactions to the way women are treated in the future were quite well thought out and executed.

I know I'd be horrified to go from my life as it is now, to a time and place where I'm thought of as less than a fourth class citizen, and barely one step above a slave. I thought that the separation of Karigan from everything she knows and loves presented her with many opportunities to grow as a character that she might not otherwise have come across in her everyday life.

I enjoyed watching her work through things, convert people to her way of thinking, and find her way back home. That's what I read the series for, to see her do awesome things and solve her own problems. The bad? At first he was an extraordinarily cliche douchebag that kept being shoehorned into the plot in places where he really didn't belong AT ALL. When that didn't work, the author made up a sidestory for him to go off and adventure on his own, which was extremely boring and pointless because it didn't have anything to do with ANYTHING ELSE happening in the book in any way.

And here, view spoiler [ he's the friggen immortal emperor? I haven't seen an author try so hard to make an awful character work since freaking God Emperor of Dune. I hate the character, and I hate how the author keeps trying to make him relevant when he's not I get that SHE may enjoy him as the writer, but when he literally serves no purpose whatsoever to the plot at all except to be there, maybe it's time to either just remove him and stop trying, or rework everything about him so that he actually has some relevance to ANYTHING.

The Ugly? My biggest problem with this book is the love story. It's so pointless, forced and unnecessary. This is what I like to call a Single Serving Romance. You see this a lot in TV series and movies. It's where a character will fall in love with and have some sort of romance with another, and at the end, the love story ends, the characters go their separate ways, and it's never spoken of again, doesn't leave any lasting impact on either the characters, or the story, and really serves no purpose whatsoever except to be a love story for the sake of having a love story.

I don't mind love stories. I actually kind of like it when characters have a truly meaningful romance. But when it's just a love story to be a love story, I absolutely hate it. Not every story needs a love story in it, and this one didn't. Especially considering all of the attachments that Karigan already has.

She's in what, a love septangle back in the past now? This love story was unnecessary, and really rather uncomfortable for me, because it makes Karigan look very shallow. The sort of character that will fall in love with the nearest member of the opposite gender when away from the ones she truly loves. But that is, of course, the male perspective on it. I found out long ago that if you want to know what women think of something, the best way is to ask a woman.

I know, it sounds crazy to some men out there like the entirety of the US Congress , but women actually have opinions about things, and if you ask them, they'll be more than happy to share them with you. So, let me ask, Ladies, what did you think of this love story? Did you think it was pointless, shallow and contrived, a love story just for the sake of having a love story, rather than one that is meaningful and lasting? Did you like it? Somewhere between? Did you think it worked, but would have been better in a different story with a character that wasn't already entangled in a spagetti bowl of romantic plotlines?

I honestly would like to hear your take on it, and I promise I will treat your opinion with all due respect. Despite hearing nothing but terrible things about this book, I honestly really liked it. I'm not as attached to this series as many other fans are, having only just picked it up, and I didn't have to wait several years for this book after the massive cliffhanger ending of Blackveil.

I totally understand the hatred that this book gets from longtime readers. I know what it's like to be left on a horrible cliffhanger ending for several years waiting for the next volume of a series, only to have the author decide to change things up and write something of a side adventure rather than continuing on as I wanted.

Believe me I understand where the frustration and anger is coming from on this book. But I enjoyed it quite a bit, because for the first time since book 2 the series actually focused on the main character of the series. I concede that this book is probably not for everyone, and it can likely be skipped over with only reading a plot summary when book 6 comes out, but I had a lot of fun with it.

Check out my other reviews. Mar 17, Reem Jaber rated it it was ok. I am tired, to say the least. I am tired of people male or female conflating oppression of women with how much they're wearing. I am tired of a veil or scarf being a symbol of oppression. I am tired. Are there not other ways of showing the oppression of women without turning them us int I am tired, to say the least.

Are there not other ways of showing the oppression of women without turning them us into faceless, nameless, mindless automatons with no personality? Women are oppressed, undeniably, both in real and fictional societies, but this particular matter? It's just so And yes, women who cover DO have personalities and feelings and thoughts and desires just like ones who do not, thank you very much And I read fantasy as a sort of escapism, and I know I can't escape misogyny so much as that - I have read A Song of Ice and Fire, incidentally - but veiling is the sort of thing that "feminists" like to take and run away with on why Muslim women need to be "liberated".

Excuse me, but women can be just as liberated while covered, and it is not the way they are dressed that is the problem, but the patriarchal framework within society that allows the oppression to occur. And within ALL societies, I might add. Need I point out the way Estora has been treated by the men in her life, in Karigan's Sacoridia? All right, now that I have griped about the single most annoying thing in this book, I can talk about the less-but-still annoying facets. First or second of all, this was a loss of momentum to the overall plot of the series.

There was plenty ongoing with medieval ish Sacoridia that it was entirely unnecessary to have an entire filler NOVEL in the middle of a series with very few details of what was happening in Karigan's own time. Pointless plot much?

What did we get, then, other than torturing Karigan? As a fan of fantasy novels, I am a firm believer in making your protagonists miserable, but only if it serves a purpose, for some lesson learned for them or to contribute to the overall plot, but this just seemed to be a trauma conga line for Karigan the entire time.

And a very anticlimactic one. We get it, Silk Sr. It was very cheesy too, which I should expect at this point. It's not representation if they don't even show up on the page beyond a bit of ink used to spell a name. Another note on the romance, Zachary has somehow managed to become the most irritating character in this series. How does Laren deal with him? Look, I'm just tired of men deciding that because they love a woman they have a say in what she can and can't do with her own life and this is BEFORE putting a ring on it, so to speak, which makes it MUCH worse in my opinion.

If this bothers you too, read Brandon Sanderson's stuff. The men don't stop the women from doing anything - at least, not for the usual "it's dangerous, don't do it" - in his books, and it is VERY refreshing. Anyway, maybe as a standalone the book the plot would have worked. I would have liked to see more female characters with personalities than Lorine and the housekeeper whose name escapes me, like maybe another "unconventional" woman who bucks at society's restrictions and maybe not the veil so much as the fact they can't own property or study at a university , because look: if your revolution isn't for EVERYONE and doesn't INVOLVE everyone, including women, then it is not a good revolution.

Yeah, Professor? May 07, K rated it it was amazing. I'm still in absolute denial about Cade but there you go probably not going to change for another years. I do believe that by seeing this difference Karigan will have renewed determination against Mornhaven. Was the book painful in some places? Hoo boy yes. Did it show some major almost too much character growth?

You betcha. One thing I really really really enjoyed was how much Karigan time we got. I'm fine with some alternating POVs but I like a central character. These past books, especially in THKT and Blackveil, we've been skipping around to other doings in the kingdom and following other characters. That's never really interested me.

Those two books in particular felt very bloated to me because all I wanted to read about was Karigan. I know some people say Mirror Sight is bloated and feels like a filler book because several things in Blackveil were left unanswered but I personally believe this book works very well by itself and has its own significance in the series.

What's that saying about walking in someone else's shoes? Another comment I've seen in other reviews is how slow the first half of the book is. Well, it's not terribly action packed but there was enough new setting going on that I wasn't really bothered by it. And frankly, how action packed can it be when the protagonist has a cast on her arm and a bad limp? And if she had returned home sooner, she would have never experienced Mill City and it's denizens thereby making the trip forward moot.

So yes, Lhean was unable to contact her still kinda wondering why he didn't just ask a bird or something to pass a message on, but ok and things were kind of at a standstill but it worked for me. And she also knows exactly how much is missing and will always be missing from her relationship with the King. So while I'm still in denial that we'll never see Cade again again, years for that to go away , I'm very glad we got to see him at all. Feb 12, Meaghan Macleod rated it liked it.
