Our Fabulous Giveaway ends soon. Go here for all the ways to enter.

Title: Forest Born
Author: Shannon Hale
Reviewer: Stephanie
Genre: YA Fantasy
Rating: Worship
Alerts/Warnings: Some violence
Premise: When her beloved forest no longer gives her comfort and her brother Razo invites Rinna to the city to be one of Queen Ani's waiting women, she happily accepts, only to discover her own strength comes from places both expected and unexpected. (King County Library System)
Opinions: While I love all the books of Bayern, "The Goose Girl" was always far and away my favorite. "Enna Burning" is fascinating and each time I read it, I like it more and more. Same with "River Secrets". I assumed that "Forest Born" would be the same. I would love it, but not get the same chills I got the first time I read "The Goose Girl". Boy howdy, was I wrong. This was an amazing book! It was nothing that I expected and was truly incedible. I LOVED this book. Rinna was a completely enthralling character. The story was well balanced and drew you out. It kept on having those moments where I went "Oh my gosh, that so did not just happen." And yet it totally just did. It was incredible, amazing, fantastic, fabulous...... I highly recommend it. I hope you love it as much as I did.
