BOOK 1: The Goose Girl by Shannon Hale
Enna Burning description:
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?
Where Isi from the Goose girl was all sweet and gentle, willing to fight to save those she loves but not jumping into a fight… Enna is a fire, literally… a lot of it is just Enna’s personality… after all she was the one standing up for Isi and helping her out… Enna a gentle breeze, she’s a raging inferno… this tale is much more exciting and full of action considering there is a war going on… and Enna is beginning to be controlled by the fire which leaves her confused on which side she should be taking… she wants to burn everything regardless of which side she is burning in the process… this book is about the balance needed in all things and is in some ways a two part tale of the different journey’s Enna takes to save the kingdom and then herself… it’s a wonderful installment for The Books of Bayern and definitely a series to read…
