Publisher Comments:

From the acclaimed, bestselling author of Mother Earth Father Skycomes an extraordinary new novel of courage and human conflict in a prehistoric wilderness of ice and snow.

Eighty centuries before our time — in the frozen interior of a place that would someday be called Alaska — a clubfooted babe was left in the snow to die...until he was rescued by a young woman ravaged by her enemies and sworn to vengeance.

Twenty years later, the child, called Chakliux, has grown to manhood and occupies an honored place as his tribe's treasured storyteller, while his adoptive mother K'os has grown cunning and cold. But in the neighboring village of the Near River People — where he has been sent to make peace by wedding the shaman's daughter — a shocking double murder occurs that sets Chakliux on a remarkable journey. Driven by the ancient songs of sea and sky, earth and animals, the storyteller traverses a harsh, unknown, yet enthralling landscape in search of the strange truth about the offenses for which his people have suffered...and about the hateful, ambitious woman who raised him, who may be his most dangerous enemy of all.

Synopsis:

Returning to the harsh and breathtaking landscape she so vividly recreated in her bestselling Mother Earth, Father Sky, author Sue Harrison brings us the first book of her remarkable Storyteller Saga. It is the tale of Chakliux, abandoned as a baby to die on the Arctic ice, only to be rescued and raised to manhood by K'os, a cold and cunning woman seeking vengeance on the men who defiled her. At the age of twenty, Chakliux occupies an honored place as his tribe's storyteller, and is sent to a neighboring enemy village to secure the peace by marrying the shaman's daughter. But a shocking double murder sets the storyteller on an extraordinary journey across the frozen wastes in search of the strange truth about the offenses for which his people have long suffered..and about the hateful, scheming woman who raised him, who may turn out to be his most dangerous enemy.

Book Drunkard, March 21, 2014 (view all comments by Book Drunkard)
Sue Harrison’s book, Song of the River, is the first in her Storyteller trilogy. It’s set in Alaska in the 7th century BC and tells of Chakliux who, when born with a deformed foot, is left out to die but is instead mistaken for an animal gift by someone in another tribe who takes him in. If that’s not interesting enough, add in a few murders and you’re got yourself an exceptionally entertaining read.

The author once again (see my review of another of her books HERE) succeeds in writing characters that I came to care for. Not only that, but the story lines are unique and suitable for the time period ��" and no modern language!! I hate when I read a historical book and it sounds like they were all born in the 1980s. Pet peeve! Thankfully you won’t find that with Sue Harrison’s books. I’m amazed at well she writes about this time period and the research must have been painstaking.

I’m so thrilled to have found this author. In fact, as much as I love Jean Auel’s books, I love Sue’s more. She definitely has a new fan in me.
