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.

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.
