Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Rin is sure that something is wrong with her…something really bad. Something that is keeping her from feeling at home in the Forest homestead where shes lived all her life. Something that is keeping her from trusting herself with anyone at all. When her brother Razo returns from the city for a visit, she accompanies him to the palace, hoping that she can find peace away from home. But war has come to Bayern again, and Rin is compelled to join the queen and her closest allies—magical girls Rin thinks of as the Fire Sisters—as they venture into the Forest toward Kel, the land where someone seems to want them all dead. Many beloved Bayern characters reappear in this story, but it is Rins own journey of discovering how to balance the good and the bad in herself that drives this compelling adventure.

Once again, Newbery Honor-winning author Shannon Hale brings readers to a world where great friendships, unexpected plot twists, and a little dose of magic make for incredible storytelling.


In the much-anticipated fourth title in the Books of Bayern series, Newbery Honor-winning author Hale delivers an emotionally wrenching journey of self-discovery set in the magical and alluring world first encountered in "The Goose Girl."

Hale's fourth installment of the Bayern series is entertaining, but doesn't quite live up to the standards of its predecessors. While some may enjoy reading about Rin's inner struggle before and after discovering her powers of "speech", I felt that these musings were a bit excessive and skimmed over much of Rin's self-loathing and unvoiced whining. I do admit that the twist of the novel that ties together all the events in the four books (no spoiler here!) made for a more interesting read, and overall this was a pleasant piece.
