Forest Born by Shannon Hale

5 stars

Still 5 stars... but this one is a little harder to read.  Rin is a complicated character and sometimes you just want to shake her.  :D

Rin is Razo's little sister.... You read my post about River Secrets, right?  I love Razo.  Really really.  He's adorable.  And I love how Shannon Hale says that he wasn't going to be a big part of Forest Born, but he snuck or forced his way in.... :D

Anyway, Rin.  Rin has issues.  But I don't want to give anything away, so just go read it.  :D

New attacks on Bayern, this time from Kel, have prompted the "Fire Sisters" as Rin calls them (Isi, Enna and Dasha-- you MUST read River Secrets first for this to make sense) to set off on yet another adventure.  So Rin follows them, feeling desperately that she must keep moving.  That maybe being with Isi and the others will fix what's wrong with her.

Interesting story.  Pulls interesting threads from previous books.  Threads we didn't realize were loose.  :D

Now I'm just really really hoping there's a 5th book coming.....

This book counts for the Support Your Local Authors Challenge!


  1. I don't think I've heard of this series. Sounds good though/

  2. Really? They're great. You really have to start with Goose Girl, though. Then Enna Burning, then River Secrets.

  3. I've only read two other books by Hale, but these sound good and fun. I'll have to look into them! Thanks for these reviews. :)

  4. I recommend them-- they're lots of fun!
