The River Runes
on July 09, 2011
In Ken Lindsey’s book River Runes, we enter the city of Caithiir. It is inhabited by humans but visited daily and protected through the river runes by magicians. Jonathan is the protagonist who is an apprentice to a magician. He is coming into his own. Soon he will assume the Master's place as magician of Third Chapel. However a curious newcomer makes his way into Third Chapel by the name of Bixby. He is a faerie. He is naïve and unsupervised. Trouble brews since the overwhelming force of Mother has been set in motion, and there are consequences. How can Jonathan and the magician, Imlay, protect Bixby?
This book is dramatic, in that, events are always unfolding and since we care about the fully developed main characters, we as readers want to read on. The language that the author Ken Lindsey uses to describe the city and the magician and his apprentice working on the runes is very detailed and precise. You can easily picture a scene of what is happening. It should be made into a movie.
I especially like the subtle comparisons between the humans who live in Caithiir and real people in everyday life. They are so ignorant of the forces that impact their lives—the power of the river that they so desperately try to control and the magicians everywhere around them. At the same time they think they are so in control when they are not.
I really liked this book. I will not give away the plot or the ending. All I can say is, “Read it!”
