I received a copy of this from Librarything in exchange for an honest review.
This was an amazing novel. I started it last night and could not put it down until I finished it this morning. Simple language and fast paced. I was drawn in from the first page.
It is the fourth book in Richan's The River series, but is written in a way that one can still understand it even without a knowledge of the other books. It gave me chills to read such an excellent story. It is very plot-based and dialogue-focused. Pretty quick to get through and definitely worth it. I would love to go back and read the first three books.
