Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 6–10—Revisiting the world introduced in Shannon Hale's The Goose Girl (Bloomsbury, 2003; Full Cast Audio, 2005) and continued in Enna Burning (Bloomsbury, 2004; Full Cast Audio, 2007), River Secrets (Bloomsbury, 2006) centers around Razo, the small and somewhat unlikely member of an elite band of Bayern warriors. Hostilities remain between Bayern and Tira after a devastating war and the leaders hope that an exchange of ambassadors will help reconcile the two countries. Razo is surprised to find himself part of the contingent that travels with the ambassador to Tira and is soon embroiled in a mystery to discover who is burning Tiran people in order to frame the Bayern. Familiar characters such as Enna and Finn figure prominently, and the introduction of Lady Dasha as a possible love interest for Razo is a welcome addition. This volume can stand alone because enough background information is provided for listeners to become immersed in Hale's fully-realized world. The solid and well-paced narration by Mark Allen Holt is augmented by distinct voice actors for all the characters. This talented cast, headed by Seth Jackson as Razo, brings out the emotion, adventure, humor, and romance of the story. Musical interludes help set and maintain the mood at the beginning and ending of each chapter. This full-cast performance brings this fantasy to life and makes for a very memorable listening experience.—Amanda Raklovits, Champaign Public Library, IL

    Shannon Hale: My FAVORITE Author

    I LOVED River Secrets. Make sure, though, that you read The Goose Girl and Enna Burning first. The Books of Bayern are fantastic, and I cannot wait for Forest Born! If you loved the others, you'll love this one. Razo is SUCH a great character!

    River Secrets

    I love the characters in this book!!! Razo is so sweet. I wish I could meet him. The story itself can get a bit slow, but the characters and the conflict are really different from other stuff I've read. I personally don't think the picture of Razo on the cover does the character any justice, but it doesn't matter. I can't wait for Forest Born!!!!! :D

    Awesome!!

    This is by far one of my favorites! I love Razo and Finn! You just have to read the book for yourself and see how it is. Truly it is an amazing book and I find myself wanting to read it again and again. Be sure to read Goose Girl first then Enna Burning if you want to know how the beginning started.

    her first book centered around a boy

    I believe this is the second best book of the seres. it is tthe only one that centers itself around a guy. the plot moves along nicely, and you find things in places where you least expect. this book kept my attention the entire time. i could not put it down. :)

    A reviewer

    I would give the book River Secrets, by Shannon Hale, 5 stars. River Secrets deserves five stars because it is full of magic, mystery, wonder and power. River Secrets keeps you turning the page. You can't put it down. Shannon Hale's creative writing ability is notable and obvious in River Secrets. For example, Shannon Hale writes 'Razo felt the energy like a muscle twitch'. River Secrets is filled with metaphors and similes to help paint the scene or describe a character. An example is '¿ Dasha held up her hands and laughed, as pleased as a fish in a stream.' Shannon Hale's writing is beautiful, lyrical, and descriptive. She can paint an entire landscape, a people, or a culture in a few sentences. I felt like I was right there with Razo as he ran down the streets of Tira, or when Dasha and Razo went to the ocean. My favorite aspect of the book is that it is a perfect fairy tale without being too far fetched, magical and unbelievable. There is just a sprinkle of fantasy and magic mixed in with mystery, secrets and suspense. I recommend the other two books written by Shannon Hale in the Bayern trilogy, Goose Girl, and Enna Burning. I am an eighth grader who loves to read.

    unimpressive

    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.

    Wonderful Book

    This book was really well written and again, Shannon Hale has proved to be a master of storytelling. I highly recommended its companions, The Goose Girl and Enna Burning. If you love Shannon's books, make sure you check out her website!

    Shannon Hale is one of the best authors alive today. I'm expecting another Newberry Honor, or maybe a medal, out of this one.
