Series: The Books of Bayern (#3)
Another excellent fantasy by Hale. This third book pivots to a male POV with great success, and delves into political drama and learning to value your own uniqueness. Which, yes that's the heart of nearly every YA book, but Hale has a shockingly deft touch at it; she's a master of showing through me...
The third of the Books of Bayern series, River Secrets switches protagonists again. This time the book follows Razo, a soldier of Bayern and close friend of Isi and Enna, the protagonists of the first two books. Tensions are still high between Bayern and Tira after the war between the two countries ...
3.5 or 3.75 stars. Well done, but not on the same level as Enna Burning and Goose Girl. Will elaborate later.
Finn, Enna and Razo find themselves on a diplomatic escursion in a country where people are starting to rumble about war and where suspicion of some deaths is pointing at them It's an interesting sequel but you really need to have read the others in the sequence before reading this.
Razo is so freakin' awesome! He alone deserves 10 stars, and then throw in a thrilling plotline and Shannon Hale's writing, and you've got a completely brilliant book!
