This Title No Longer Available - Please Do Not Order

The war with Tira is over, and Tira has lost. But simmering anger remains, and hostilities could erupt at any moment In a desperate attempt to maintain the peace, King Geric sends an ambassador to the Tiran capitol. Razo—short, impish, and not at all skilled at combat—is astounded when he is selected to be part of the delegation’s military guard, and even more astounded when he discovers the real reason for his inclusion.

All too soon Razo is up to his eyeballs in a simmering mix of danger and intrigue—not to mention an unexpected romance. But as the gruesome deaths mount everyone is a suspect—even the girl who has stolen Razo’s heart.

Reviews:
"Mark Allen Holt skillfully narrates the story as Razo, allowing listeners to feel his insecurities and suspicions. The rest of the full cast breathes life into the remaining characters, as the music used throughout the recording lends an authentic and sometimes ominous feel to the story. The third book in the Books of Bayern Series is a great addition to any YA Audio book collection."

"The solid and well-paced narration by Mark Allen Holt is augmented by distinct voice actors for all the characters. This talented cast, headed by Seth Jackson as Razo, brings out the emotion, adventure, humor, and romance of the story. . . . a very memorable listening experience."
    — School Library Journal October, 2009   Starred Review
 
"[Mark] Holt takes on the role of principal narrator in this multicast production. His reading is dramatic and upbeat and filled with suspense. The cast features age-appropriate narrators, including Chelsea Mixon in the role of Enna and Seth Jackson as Razo . . . The characters are easily distinguished in this complex fantasy."
    — Booklist August 2009
 
"This full-cast production makes Hale's story sparkle with dialogue and snappy, humorous exchanges between characters like Razo, Enna, and Dasha, an ambassador's daughter. The cast's varied voices and spontaneous-sounding interactions add depth and drama to the production."

Praise for the print version of This Title Now Available From Blackstone Audio - Please check their website:
"As in the companion books, this high fantasy is rich in detail and lyrical in writing. While it helps to have read the two previous books, River Secrets stands on its own. But fans of the genre will no doubt rejoice in immersing themselves in this magical world by reading all three."
    — School Library Journal
 
"The expertly chosen, often poetic details set and pace the story, and the fully drawn characters, whose dialogue crackles with wit, will point readers to the underlying themes of cultural prejudice and the corruption of power that touch on contemporary political debates. Suspenseful, magical, and heartfelt, this is a story that will wholly envelop its readers."
