River Secrets (Books of Bayern Series #3) by Shannon Hale

In this beloved third book in the Books of Bayern, from New York Times bestselling author Shannon Hale, Razo must become the unlikely hero his country needs.

Razo has never considered himself anything but ordinary--and certainly not a great soldier. So he's sure it's out of pity that his captain asks him to join an elite mission escorting the ambassador into Tira, Bayern's greatest enemy.

But when the Bayern arrive in the strange southern country, it's Razo who discovers the first dead body. He is also the only Bayern able to befriend the right people--potential allies who can provide information about the ever-increasing murders--like the beautiful Lady Dasha. If Razo can embrace his talents, he might be the only one who can get the Bayern soldiers home alive.

The third book in master storyteller Shannon Hale's beloved Books of Bayern series is equal parts fantastical and romantic, with an unforgettable protagonist to root for at its center.

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!

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

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.

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.

I think that she should defenatly make a movie out of these because these books are so wonderful that i would pay money to watch them be so incredibly awesome just like this :D this is defenatly one of her many master peices. If she is making any other books to his one, i really want to be one of the first people to read it - love marianna lucero <3

If you like tha certain story that grabs you with a little romance and a mystery to solve at the end of every section, then this is the book and author for you. Shannon hale is the best author for your children ages from eight to teens. It really depends on what your child's knowledge level is on the world itself. Her bokks are always great.
