River Secrets by Shannon Hale

        
River Secrets
(Books of Bayern #3)
by Shannon Hale
Summary from Goodreads:

"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. "

Rating:

I just love sequels!!! I am ultimately, undeniably, extremely (okay,too much adjectives!) in love with Razo! Oh dear, dear Razo, you feel so down you don't even realize how much you're worth! *giggles*

Razo's character is someone that you would definitely remember. He's cunning, funny, sweet and buoyant. I just can't get enough of him.

I can't quite put any words worthy to describe River Secrets. It has everything! I really love tales that can round up all the things I want to see in a book. River Secrets is commendable enough to be a movie. It's great! Really great! Shannon, you are just amazing!
