    • Anthropologist and professor, Del Hawthorne, is on a mission. It begins the moment, an ill and aged Professor Schroeder – a man she believed had died with her father seven years earlier – stumbles into her classroom to tell Del that her father is alive, but about to be killed by someone bent on destroying humanity. To find her father, Del must reach the Nahanni River where he and Schroeder had originally disappeared. Gathering a small team of people, Del begins a risky, unusual adventure, wh [...]


    • I only read the first couple of chapters so perhaps this isn't a fair assessment of the book---but my first impression is that this stinks.The writing style isn't bad. It's the character behavior. The protagonist reacts in totally unrealistic ways. She meets a person that holds the key to finding her long lost and presumed dead father and she has him hauled off by security instead of asking questions. Then a little while later she visits him in the hospital and he codes and subsequently is given [...]


    • The River – Hang on for the ride of your life!Having moved on seven years after her missing father is assumed dead, Delia Hawthorne “Del” is visited by an aged stranger. Convinced the man is deranged, Del calls security to have him removed from her university classroom. “Delly it’s me” he says. And though it can’t be, it is. He is professor Schroeder, a colleague gone missing with her father so many years earlier, only he is much older than he should be. Schroeder tells her that he [...]


    • Ms. Tardif created an intriguing and entertaining mix of mystery, adventure and science fiction in this book, which takes the reader on a thrilling ride down the Nahanni River in the northern Canadian wilderness and into a world of time travel, nanobots, stem cell technology, and the search for a fountain-of-youth elixir.The characters were interesting and compelling with their own quirks, foibles and emotional baggage, and the descriptions of the river and the Canadian wilderness were vivid and [...]


    • A fast paced thriller. The story is an unlikely and engaging look at how advances in science, particularly stem cell research, can bring out the worst in people. The descriptions of both the physical and mystical qualities of the northern Canadian territory described in the book are as beautiful as they are haunting.

    • This is one of those books that gets a half star, so total 3.5 stars!At first, I thought it was just another mystery/suspense novel. Then very quickly, the story gets extremely “edge of your seat”. With Del’s father’s disappearance and presumed death, it certainly started out as your average novel. Then, 7 years later, one of Del’s father’s old colleagues shows up out of the blue very sick and seemingly crazy - with a coded notebook telling her that her father is still alive! Before [...]


    • great characters, tons of action, cool technologyMichael Crichton fans will enjoy a ride on THE RIVER: like Crichton, Cheryl Tardif's suspense/near science fiction is all about what happens when you mix way-cool technology with bad people. Biotechnologist Dr. Lawrence went missing on a northern Canadian river trip seven years before. His anthropologist daughter Del is surprised when one of his traveling companions drops two bombshells: Lawrence is still alive, and bad guys are after him. He give [...]


    • Remember the movie The River Wild starring Kevin Bacon and Meryl Streep? That is what I thought back to while reading this novel. Though the conflict in the two stories are widely different, there is of course the river (wild in some areas) as the common denominator.The story started rather slow, but it quickly gained pace and it got really very exciting. It also deals with a delicate and scary subject - nanotechnology. The author has the standard disclaimer about the story being a work of ficti [...]


    • I think I came across this author on someone else's blog. That's where I find a lot of indie authors. I am SO glad I found Ms. Tardif. Oh, man, I loved this book so much! There was a lot of suspense and adventure. And some romance thrown in, too, but that wasn't the main focus. The author showed a lot of imagination in this book, and it was also well written.There were two things I didn't like. The African American character kept calling everyone "dawg". This was just a personal thing; if this i [...]


    • I follow Cheryl on Twitter for her writing advice. When I saw the opportunity to get some of her books very inexpensively on my new Nookcolor I picked them up. It had an interesting premise, a great twist, and a disturbing ending. I really liked it.I'm not happy with Smashwords though. There were ? and other miscellaneous punctuation in odd places. I'm not sure if it was formating or editing. If it was editing, I'm willing to let the formatting take the blame.


    • I enjoyed this book as it drew me in from the first page. I was a little confused towards the end of the story because it went off on a different vein than what I expected but it ended up evening out and it finally made sense. The intricate storyline kept me turning the page and I read this book in 2 days.I would recommend this book to people who are into thrillers.I give this book 5 stars for the clear plot-line and interesting character development.


    • Really enjoyed this one. Loved the characters and there was tons of adventure, mystery and intrigue. Couldn't give it five stars because I was let down by the ending. I was a little confused, and there wasn't enough closure. All in all, an exciting book that I would definitely recommend.


    • This is a true adventure story. The twists and turns start at page one and don't stop as anthropologist, Del Hawthorne, heads to the Nahanni River to find her missing father with only a coded journal to lead the way. Keeps you on your toes until the last page.




    • Hodge podge of too many genre. Fails to convince readers on its reality due to the sheer oddities put so casually, without much convincing explanation. Some good pieces of info on the Nahanni however.


    • Laut Klappentext ist dieser Roman ein Thriller um Stammzellenforschung, Klontechnik und Weltherrschaftspläne. Das hört sich eigentlich recht interessant an und ein wenig entwickelt sich der Roman auch im zweiten Teil in Richtung dieser Themen. Doch zuallererst ist es ein Roman über die Suche einer Tochter nach ihrem vor sieben Jahren verschwundenen Vater.Die Protagonistin Del Hawthorne, 33 Jahre alt und Professorin für Anthropologie in Vancouver, bekommt einen Hinweis, dass ihr verschwundene [...]


    • Be afraid, be very afraid. Action-packed futuristic techno-thriller too close for comfortThere are many legends about the Nahanni River in the Northwest Territory, many of them featuring headless corpses and skeletons, and disappearances, a river of ghosts. Cheryl Kaye Tardif has placed her paranormal techno-thriller in this beautiful and awesome part of northern Canada. I love how she describes everything so well that each scene is vividly implanted in the reader's mind, so much so that one can [...]


    • Ein sehr gelungenes Buchcover, welches die Stimmung des Geschriebenen wunderbar widerspiegelt. Alles etwas düster und der Fluss wirkt gespenstisch und wild, verblasst sind die Schaltsysteme eines Computers zu erkennen, die die Forschung andeuten. Hat mich persönlich sehr angesprochen.Um den Nahanni River ranken sich unzählige Geschichten und Mythen, unter anderem von verschwunden Menschen und denen die ohne Kopf wieder auftauchen.Auf einer Expedition verschwindet dort Dr. Hawthrone und sein T [...]


    • Die Leseprobe beim Luzifer Verlag war so vielversprechend, dass ich total gespannt und neugierig war, ob das im gesamten Buch durchgehend gehalten werden kann. Dank einer tollen Aktion beim "Luzifer Verlag" habe ich die Chance bekommen die Geschichte fertig zu lesen, zu erfahren wie die Geschichte ausgeht und mich selbst davon zu überzeugen ob die Spannung durchweg bei "Wilder Fluss" gehalten werden kann.Deshalb möchte ich mich an dieser Stelle ersteinmal beim Verlag bedanken.Die Anthropologie [...]


    • Abstruse, größtenteils langweilige Story, die wohl am ehesten in das Genre: Schundroman eingeordnet werden kann.Inhalt:Del Hawthorne ist Anthropologieprofessorin an der Universität in Vancouver, Kanada.Eines Tages taucht ein Freund ihres Vaters bei ihr auf, der behauptet, ihr Vater, der vor sieben Jahren verschollen war und für tot erklärt wurde, sei noch am Leben.Er gibt ihr ein paar unausgegorene Hinweise und fordert sie auf, ihren Vater zu retten.Mit einer zusammengewürfelten Mannschaft [...]


    • Del Hawthorne hat vor sieben Jahren ihren Vater verloren. Der angesehene Wissenschaftler verschwand in der Nähe des Nahanni River und wurde für tot erklärt. Dieses Drama lässt Del nicht los. Da taucht ein alter Arbeitskollege in lebensbedrohlichem Zustand auf und behauptet, dass ihr Vater noch lebt. Dieser Mann ist unnatürlich stark gealtert. Sie will die Wahrheit herausfinden und bricht mit einer Gruppe von Freiwilligen zum Nahanni River auf. Dort angekommen werden sie mit mysteriösen Tod [...]


    • I came across an excerpt of Cheryl Kaye Tardif’s, “The River,” over a year ago while surfing the web. I don’t like reading on my computer but thought I’d just skim a few pages. I ended up reading the entire excerpt. When I finished I was scrambling to find this book. For some reason I got sidetracked and never ordered it, but the bit of the story that I read stayed with me. After a significant amount of searching, having forgotten the author’s name, I finally had The River downloaded [...]


    • When you arrive at your future, will you blame your past? - Robert HalfI discovered author Tardif recently and have been bingeing on her books. "Children of the Fog" and "Submerged" were the first two books I read - and enjoyed. Both are mystery thrillers with a dash of paranormal thrown in for a little extra spiceE RIVER is a adventure/sci fi. I started out reading it with high hopes. After all, Tardif bases her novels in unique locations and this one definitely fits that description. I rea [...]


    • I won a signed paperback copy. Thank you, Cheryl Kaye Tardif! But my eyes don't do paperback novels very well. Then I picked up a free Kindle copy. Yay!I am so glad I got to read this. It is like two novels in one. You get the wilderness adventure and then a science fiction novel. I loved the characters so the switch was easy, I still wanted to know what happened so even though there was a bit of a bump from nature to sterile futurism, the story continued. In fact, for this sci-fi fan it got eve [...]


    • I liked the premise of the book and the idea behind the story. The author had some interesting plot ideas and there were a few spots I was interested in the book but overall, the book just didn't work for me. One of the biggest issues was the characters, they were underdeveloped, flat and had very predictable actions. I also found them to be somewhat stereotypical and the main character to be a Mary-Sue. I think if the characters had stronger development in the book, I may have enjoyed it more. [...]


    • This story is an adventure/mystery/suspense/romance all rolled into one great read. The characters are well developed. I immediately liked Delila (Del) and understood her frustration of needing to find her father. As for Jake, I loved him. TJ, what can I say, he's the likable guy that's also a jerk at times. When the river adventure took a sharp u-turn, something I hadn't expected, the story had me hooked. While I was reading the last few pages on my kindle, my husband, who was fishing at the ti [...]


    • A hard tale to place in a genre. Science fiction comes closest, but at first I thought it was a romance with medical thriller trappings as heroine Del Hawthorne tries to understand her father's disappearance and what it has to do with the genetics lab where he worked. Then it seemed to be a Clive Cussler style tale of hidden treasure, as a coded notebook leads Del and a group of friends to take to canoes on the Nahanni River of the title- but still with the traits of a romance prominent. Eventua [...]


    • Best Book I've Read in Years!This is one of the best books I've read in years. If you like thrills, science, mystery, history and great character development (and who doesn't!) - this book is for you.I enjoy reading books that are based on actual facts (historic or scientific) with fully developed fictional characters, some science fiction and great suspense. I like to learn something while enjoying a thrill ride.If you like Michael Chrichton, you will enjoy this book.I've now read all of Cheryl [...]
