Format: Hardcover
Something is wrong with her, Rin is just sure of it.

She doesn't feel at home in the Forest, where she has lived her whole life. Razo, her favorite brother, has gone off to the city. She is left as Ma's shadow. Rin has no idea who she is.

But when Razo comes home for a visit, Rin goes back to the city with him. To be one of the Queen's ladies in waiting.

Soon after her arrival, war has come to Bayern. Rin accompanies Isi, the Queen, and her closet friends, in search of those who want to hurt Bayern. Rin thinks of them as the Fire Sisters. Together, they go into the Forest towards the land of Kel.

Shannon Hale's writing is irresistible to me. I love it. I just feel for the characters in the story. I am pulled in and need to know what is going to happen. I felt Rin's raw emotions, whether it was pain or happiness. It was so fun to read, and it got really intense in some parts!

FOREST BORN, I think, is geared more towards a younger reader, but really, anyone who reads it will enjoy it.

Format: Paperback
I was a little worried about how this book could ever live up to it's three predecessors. Although I loved The Goose Girl and River Secrets, and liked Enna Burning, I was wondering if Shannon Hale could manage to pull off another one. I didn't need to worry at all!

Forest Born was beautifully written, with the trademark lyrical descrtiptions that I've come to expect from Hale. Rin was an engaging character, despite a wavery start, and we got to see plenty of Razo, Dasha, Enna, Finn, Isi and all my old friends! Though she wasn't as funny as Razo, or as strong as Enna, I thought she was a very deep character, with a likeable calm about her. And, of course, Razo was there anyway, to provide some comic relief!

This story was quite a good bit darker than some of the others, but in a very good way- I couldn't stop myself turning the pages, and I got several huge surprises throughout the book.

I would definitely recommend this book, but it is probably better if you've at least read The Goose Girl first, preferably the whole series. As ever, I loved this book, and will be definitely purchasing any more written by Hale!

Shannon Hale continues the books of Bayern with the fourth book Forest Born. It's a fantastic finish to the series. I absolutely love the books of Bayern and have been riveted all the way through. Shannon Hale has a beautiful style of writing using similes and metaphors that enable to you to picture exactly the events occurring.
There were twists and turns I never would have dreamed were coming. A fantastic author, one of my favourites! This book won't disappoint

This is a novel full of disarming humility and naivete. The way hale weaves such an intricate image is spellbinding. So that although you are touching upon such fictitious fantasies, they seem everyday. And I find myself looking at the trees. Surely this is what only the best novels do; influence you after the final page turn. I truly recommend this and the rest of Hales four Hayden novels to anybody with an open mind.
