Razo has no idea why he was chosen to be a soldier. He can barely swing a sword, and his brothers are forever wrestling him to the ground. Razo is sure it's out of pity that his captain asks him to join an elite mission--escorting the ambassador into Tira, Bayern's great enemy.

But when the Bayern arrive in the strange southern country, Razo discovers the first dead body. He befriends both the high and low born, people who can perhaps provide them with vital information. And Razo is the one who must embrace his own talents in order to get the Bayern soldiers home again, alive.

Newbery-Honor winner Shannon Hale returns the reader to the intrigue and magic of Bayern, first introduced in her critically acclaimed novel, The Goose Girl. Enter a world where even those with no special magical skills find in themselves something they never imagined.

Best book in series!!!

Reader reviewed by lewlew27

In River Secrets, Shannon Hale writes from the POV of Razo, who has been Enna and Isi's loyal friend throughout the past two Bayren books. Razo is chosen as a soldier to go to Tira, an enemy of Bayren. While there, he uncovers a murder plot against the ambassador to Tira, and even finds love along the way. I couldn't put this book down! It was by far the best book in the series. I can't wait for the next book in the Bayren series! Go Shannon Hale!

3rd in a delightful series

Reader reviewed by mearley

River Secrets is the third book in Shannon Hale's Bayern series. Here, she takes Razo, a minor character from the first two books, and gives him his own story line. While he can't speak to the wind or fire like Enna or Isi, he is a loyal friend and subject. He serves the army in a way only he can, and even finds a little romance along the way!

Shannon Hale is a wonderful author, and I'm eagerly awaiting the next book in the series!
