Description

Rin, Razo's little sister, is haunted by the Forest she has always loved. When Razo invites her back to the city to be one of Queen Ani's waiting women, she happily accepts...only to end up on the adventure of her lifetime, following the queen, Enna, and Dasha into the countryside in search of a fire-starting enemy that no one can see. As she learns more about the three women's magical talents, she finds her own strength comes from places both expected--trees--and unexpected--the sound of her own voice. A brilliant addition to the Books of Bayern, this book is a treat for fans of this series, and stands alone for readers who might be discovering the joys of Shannon Hale's writing for the first time.


Praise For Forest Born (Books of Bayern)

“One doesn't need to have read the earlier books to become enraptured by this one, but doing so adds to the richness of these very satisfying tales.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Fans of the earlier titles as well as admirers of the genre will find Rin's journey a compelling read.” —School Library Journal

“All is told in Hale's assured voice, drawing the details of her invented countries with precision and depth. Strong characters define the series: commanding Isi, passionate Enna, wily Razo, and now shadowed Rin. Newcomers will find this book an easy entry point, and fans will need no excuse to dive back into Hale's fantasy world.” —The Horn Book

“Hale has once again exceeded my expectations. Forest Born blew me away from page one, drawing me back into the world of Bayern.” —Chick Lit Teens (Online)

“One of the best things about this book is that all of Hale's heroines have a chance to shine... They're feminine, caring, supportive, and yet, when the need arises, fierce and powerful. Yet, put them all together and they are truly forces to be reckoned with. The best parts of the book are when Isi, Enna, and Dasha work together, and then when they realize what Rin has to offer them, they include Rin in their ring of power, where Rin is least comfortable, yet most needed.” —Book Nut (Online)
