River Secrets The Books of Bayern, by Shannon Hale If The Goose Girl took on a fairytale vibe and Enna Burning a dark tone, then River Secrets takes a happy, light, mysterious tone So I ll quickly get into why I took a . stars from my rating Basically, the previous two books had the characters learn how to speak the languages of different elements. River Secrets River Secrets Books of Bayern, Book Oct , River Secrets continues with the Bayern characters that we are all familiar with at this point in the series But I will say that it isn t my favorite book in the series It follows Razo, who to me was not much a main character in the other novels, so I River Secrets Books of Bayern Shannon Hale Bloomsbury About River Secrets In this third book in New York Times bestselling, Newbery Honor winning author Shannon Hale s beloved YA fantasy series Books of Bayern, Razo must become the unlikely hero his country needs Razo has never considered himself anything but ordinary and certainly not a great soldier. River Secrets Walmart Walmart Just like the other two books, River Secrets has a theme to it, though I don t feel it s as heavy handed Mostly it has to do with Razo gaining true confidence in himself, which is symbolized in how at the beginning of the story, he compensates for his height by putting sap into his hair to make it stand on end and make him look taller.

  1. 4.5 I really love this series, but this was my least favourite I found it to be predictable and a bit slower, especially following the amazingness that was Enna Burning But, I love Razo and he was a pleasure to follow

  2. This is possibly my favorite of Shannon Hale s books so far although it is hard to choose The plot was perhaps slightly predictable just slightly , but Razo s character is absolutely hilarious I love how Hale takes time to add in little funny or observant tidbits that aren t necessarily pertinent to the plot, but that add depth to the characters This is definitely a worthwhile read but read Goose Girl and Enna Burning first.

  3. This was a perfect way too round up the series I was really excited about this one since it had Razo as the main character He is the funniest character of the series and I m so glad he got to shine in his own book You get to see past characters fairly often and some good new characters as well Here is a quick run down of the book Razo and the other soldiers of Bayern s Own must go to Tira to help along with the peace that is trying to be formed Of course this doesn t turn out to be easy when bur [...]

  4. I plugged through this one, hoping it would catch my interest later in the book like Enna Burning did Alas, it was not to be Shannon Hale the author was quoted as saying that Razo was her favorite character, the easiest to write, the most real to her Unfortunately, that s not the case for me Razo is the short, funny guy in the group who questions his worth in the war and wonders if he ll ever get over his first love As the youngest son, he wishes he was the best at something, just for once He is [...]

  5. Great, great book I really liked it I was so glad to see that the next book in the series was about Razo He s always so funny and a trustworthy friend.Quick overview Razo is chosen to join an elite mission to escort the ambassador to Tira Razo can t think of any other reason that he would be chosen except out of pity, which is what most of his fellow soldiers think In hopes of making peace with Tira they enter into the capital only to find that some Tiran are not so easy to forget their defeat i [...]

  6. If there was a 4.5 stars, this book would be it I can t justify 5 stars because then it would be in competition with some of my favorite books of all time, and it s not QUITE there I think this book is an excellent example of character development Not only do we see the improvement of the main character, but we see continued progression in characters from previous books I had no idea I loved Razo as much as I do In previous books, he was just the comic relief Truthfully, I think he s portrayed t [...]

  7. This one is somewhat different from the other Books of Bayern, in that our main character, Razo, does not discover an ability in nature language as our previous main characters have done He falls in love with a girl who has an ability to speak with water, but he himself does not have an ability.I like though, that while the other books are about a person discovering a strength, an ability, a power that they have, this book has the same basic theme, even though our main character does not have an [...]

  8. Razo isn t much good at anything He s as short as the girls He isn t handy with a sword And he always ends up in the thick of trouble It s beyond him why the captain the guard would choose to appoint him for the delicate and dangerous mission into Tira To secure peace only a year after recent war.Naturally Razo is the first to discover a burned body.And then there s the assassination attempts.And the girl who calls him a tree rat.All in all it s just possible he should have stayed home.I loved R [...]

  9. I would have to call this Shannon s worst work I ve read The storyline was boring and dragged a lot The entire first half of the book was devoted to Razo s feeling bad for himself and whining a lot I m so short I suck at everything Nobody likes me My girlfriend married someone else I am no good at swordplay Woe is me etc etc This was repeated page after page after page Finally, about 3 4 way into the book, the story started going somewhere There was a pleasant fight scene at the end which I enjo [...]

  10. Complex and edge of your seat tense as the Bayern folk try to work out a peace with enemies still traumatized by the secret fire weapon that worked such havoc on their soldiers Enna, the source of that burning, is with the delegation, working for peace, even when she knows it will mean her life if she is identified Razo the forest boy is the main character, a friend of the queen s brought to observe the success of the peace mission He is the one to discover someone in Tira is trying to hatch a p [...]

  11. I absolutely LOVED Razo He s crazy, and his being short and untalented with the sword won him a title as a spy I loved the book The romance wasn t bad, and I only caught one minor part that Shannon Hale didn t have to include to make the story enjoyable.Great job Sadly, I only have one to go.

  12. I liked Razo in previous books, but I suspect that was because he only played a small part A whole book from his point of view felt like a bit much But I liked that he had a Journey and that he didn t wallow in self pity and uselessness for the entire book although there was a lot of that in the first third He gradually realised or was told that he has good qualities observance, slinging, etc.I could have done without all the imagery I know the similes and stuff were what made the writing so Bay [...]

  13. Oh I ve waited to get a copy of this book for so long that I could scarcely believe it when the librarian said we d got a copy in Oh oh oh oh I can scarcely believe my own good fortune.Besides very decidedly being my favorite YA author, Shannon Hale is a mastermind of the uncliche, well written fantasy You won t find wizards or elves in her book, but very believable characters that any young person can relate to, and strong, unhidden themes of love, loyalty, sacrifice, and honor.River Secrets wa [...]

  14. In this third book of Bayern, Razo, one of our earlier characters, comes into center stage as he stars in his own book This book is placed in between the other 3 girl starred books but I think boys will enjoy it all the same I really enjoyed Razo s intriguing point of view and this story shows that even if you don t have special powers like Princess Anidora Kiladra Tilianna Isilee Ani or Isi and was the star of the first book , Enna who was the star of the second book , or Dasha Razo s girl and [...]

  15. By the time I picked this book up, it was clear to me that Shannon Hale was a master of her craft That said, I was unprepared for how much better this book is than her other also fantastic books This book is a whodunnit wrapped in layers of fantasy and comedy, and it is just such an enjoyable read Razo makes for a fantastic narrator.This is the best kind of whodunnit, because there are four main questions instead of just the who there is also the how , the why , and the what did they actually do [...]

  16. Shannon Hale writes excellent children s fantasy River Secrets is the third book in her BAYERN series It follows The Goose Girl and Enna Burning and focuses on one of readers and the author s favorite characters from these books, Razo of the forest.In the previous books, Razo s friend Isi, who has wind magic, became queen of Bayern and his friend Enna, who has fire magic, helped Bayern win a battle with Tira Now Bayern and Tira are swapping ambassadors and opening diplomatic relations The people [...]

  17. I like this series My only complaint is I wish there was description I love the way shannon hale writes and I look forward to the next one I like that the strong characters are mainly girls Wahoo

  18. Another great tale by Shannon Hale and amazing narration by the Full Cast Audio team This is the third book in The Books of Bayern series, and follows Razo one of the side characters on his own journey of self discovery and love Shannon Hale has an amazing way of writing fantastic characters Razo is super funny, smart, quirky and so loveable I also loved that some of the important characters from the previous books played a role in this story but that this book was a whole unique story all on it [...]

  19. A quick confession about my rating if River of Secrets hadn t come after Enna Burning I probably wouldn t have enjoyed this one as much as the first two books in this series.Razo from The Goose Girl was probably one of my favorite characters from the book and I felt a little bad when we didn t see a little of him in Enna Burning Surprisingly I didn t expect Razo s character development to be done as well as it was.That said, I didn t enjoy the plot as much as I wanted to I found the plot to be [...]

  20. This book was really good Razo is hilarious Shannon Hale usually writes about girl characters, but she did just as well with a boy character I love how she makes her characters so lifelike and lovable I can t wait to read Forest Born, the last book in the series

  21. I freaking love this book And I have a lot to say about it River Secrets is the third of the Books of Bayern The first book was The Goose Girl one of my favorite books of all time and the second is Enna Burning River Secrets follows a character named Razo, who was introduced in The Goose Girl and also played a very significant role in Enna Burning His story takes him to a new land that had previously declared war on Bayern He s chosen to be one of Bayern s Own soldiers to travel with the ambassa [...]

  22. I shouldn t have been surprised that I loved this book I ve loved all of Shannon Hale s books, and the Bayern series Goose Girl Enna Burning River Secrets certainly doesn t disappoint If I were to rate the Bayern books in order of my favorites, I d go with 1 Goose Girl, 2 River Secrets, and 3 Enna Burning I wasn t sure what I would think of River Secrets, as it s from the perspective of a male character Shannon Hale definitely impressed me, greatly, with her capture of a female voice I wasn t su [...]

  23. Thus far in my Bayern reread, this is definitely the strongest book by far It benefits both from Hale being a experienced writer and from building on the groundwork established in the previous two books in the series the premise is a great deal politically complicated than either The Goose Girl or Enna Burning, and it benefits the story greatly.The characters also have a lot nuance, I suspect in part because this is the first book Hale wrote with the idea of nature speech overwhelming people [...]

  24. Okay, I don t know if anybody else who reads Shannon Hale has noticed this or not, but every time I read her books I notice a very common thread I m not sure if it makes me like her books or less, but it eats at me every time I realize, Hey, haven t I read this somewhere before Before I try to break this down, I want the record to show that I very much enjoy Shannon Hale s books They are fun, witty, and sweet I would have loved these books as a teenager, and would recommend them to anybody who [...]

  25. I think this is my favorite of the Bayern books so far I really enjoyed Razo as a character and the situations he gets in The mystery that is at the heart of the story is really good and well done Hale is a careful writer with poetic descriptions She uses a lot of similes that are not cliches , so I recommend her writing to any student learning about those.
