Title: Enna Burning
Author: Shannon Hale
Reading Level: Young Adult
Other titles in the series: The Goose Girl, River Secrets, Forest Born
Enna's life was not meant to be simple. When her brother, Leifer, brings home a mysterious piece of vellum that teaches him how to set fires — without a spark, without flint — Enna cannot decide if this power is one she wants for herself, or something that should be extinguished forever.
And when Bayern, their country, goes to war, the choice becomes nearly unbearable. Enna never imagined that the warm, life-giving energy of a fire could destroy everything she loves, but she must now save herself and Bayern before fire consumes her entirely.
GREAT addition to the series. I was surprised that I might actually like it MORE than The Goose Girl. Is that possible?
This story is about Enna, don't worry Isi is there! But this is Enna's story. It takes place in the Forest mainly. There is a war brewing and Bayern women accompany their men into war. It is so that they will remember what they are fighting for. There is a powerful language that Enna learns, fire. She needs to learn to control it to save her people and herself. It is a GREAT STORY!!
I also love Finn. I was so glad he was given a bigger part in this book. He is lovely, and is just what a man ought to be. Will romance bloom in the midst of war? Wait and see!
Shannon Hale does fairytale's like nobody else. She is a pro! You need to read this series! Get lost in Bayern!
