Summary

Two ancient tribes on the verge of making peace become foes once more when a double murder jeopardizes a storyteller’s mission

Eighty centuries ago, in the frozen land that is now Alaska, a clubfooted male child had been left to die, when a woman named K’os rescued him. Twenty years later and no longer a child, Chakliux occupies the revered role as his tribe’s storyteller. In the neighboring village of the Near River people, where Chakliux will attempt to make peace by wedding the shaman’s daughter, a double murder occurs that sends him on a harsh, enthralling journey in search of the truth about the tragic losses his people have suffered, and into the arms of a woman he was never meant to love.

Song of the River is the first book of the Storyteller Trilogy, which also includes Cry of the Wind and Call Down the Stars.

Beach Book

The narrator was fine. The beginning of the book is dramatic and the mystery element was good. However, overall, this book was humdrum and oddly boring. I found myself losing interest in the characters and wishing the story would come to an end. I will not be reading the rest of the trilogy. I am so disappointed! But this would be fine for a beach read. Even if you nod off- you can still follow the story and not miss much.

I enjoyed the book

narrator was very good. I did not know who did it until it was told in the story. Kept me guessing and I still very was surprised.

NOT like Ivory Carver Trilogy

I just listened to all 3 books in the Ivory Carver Trilogy and I LOVED THEM. The narrator was great, the story line was great. I really enjoyed it. So I jumped right in to Song of the River and it SUCKKKKS. The narrator is terrible. I hate when men try to speak for a women. He sounds like Mrs. Doubtfire. And the story starts with rape, then the girl does some things afterwards that make me question the fact that the author is a woman because I couldnt never see shoving moss and leafs where the girl claims she did. Things got worse from there. I turned it off and came here to review and return! Its like someone else started writing under Sue's name. Weird.
