Enna Burning Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Enna and Princess Isi became fast friends in The Goose Girl, but after Isi married Prince Geric, Enna returned to the forest. Enna's simple life changes forever when she learns to wield fire and burn anything at will. Enna is convinced that she can use her ability for good-to fight Tira, the kingdom threatening the Bayern borders-and goes on secret raids to set fire to the Tiran camps and villages. But as the power of the fire grows stronger, she is less able to control her need to burn. In her recklessness she is captured by the Tiran army and held captive by a handsome, manipulative young captain who drugs her to keep her under his influence. Can Isi and her old friends Finn and Razo rescue her without sacrificing themselves? And with the fire still consuming her, will Enna find a way to manage the gift that threatens to destroy her?

Synopsis:

About the Author

Shannon Hale started writing books at age ten and has not stopped, earning an MFA in Creative Writing from the University of Montana sixteen years later, and publishing The Goose Girl, her first book, not long after that. A sometime actress, instructional designer, and missionary, she now makes her home in Salt Lake City, with her super-human husband, her newborn baby, Max, and their pet, a small, plastic pig.

While an interesting tale, this is probably my least favorite of the three Bayern books I have read. Enna spends a considerable amount of time ruminating over the challenges of being a fire speaker, which provides some good insight into the character's personality and values, but gets old after a while.. I also just don't care too much for books with wars in them (I didn't like the Two Towers as much as the other two LOTR for the same reason), so I may be somewhat biased. Still, this novel acts as an important, if not essential, tie between the Goose Girl and River Secrets, and is worth devoting a few hours to reading.
