Shannon Hale's new book, River Secrets, did not quite meet my expectations. Her other books, The Goose Girl, Enna Burning and Princess Academy, were much better. I found River Secrets a bit confusing in places and lacking in detail. Overall it was hard to keep my mind focused on the book while reading. Forest-born Razo has gotten his life-long wish to become a soldier, and when his country Bayern decides to send an elite group of soldiers called Bayern¿s Own into the enemy country Tira, he is surprised to be asked by Talone, the commander, to come along. Razo has very low self-confidence because of his small size and height and being known for how unskilled he is with a sword. A mystery immediately arises as soon as they set of on the journey, though, when Razo finds the first burned body by the riverside. He is assigned to solve the case. Not nearly as exciting or dark as Shannon Hale¿s other books, River Secrets is not very impressive and completely predictable.
