Publisher's Summary

Rin is sure that something is wrong with her...something really bad. Something that is keeping her from feeling at home in the Forest homestead where she’s lived all her life. Something that is keeping her from trusting herself with anyone at all. When her brother Razo returns from the city for a visit, she accompanies him to the palace, hoping that she can find peace away from home. But war has come to Bayern again, and Rin is compelled to join the queen and her closest allies - magical girls Rin thinks of as the Fire Sisters - as they venture into the Forest toward Kel, the land where someone seems to want them all dead.

Many beloved Bayern characters reappear in this story, but it is Rin’s own journey of discovering how to balance the good and the bad in herself that drives this compelling adventure.

    Story
    "Ugh. This seemed to drag on forever."

    Goose girl was so good. We listened to the entire series. Each consecutive book was less than the original. It was nice to see the progression of familiar characters, but the prose became repetitive and predictable. I'm glad we've finished the series and so glad we listened to her "thousand years" book immediately following "Goose Girl".

    "all right"

    This book is about a girl discovering what she can do , could or shouldn't do. The story keeps you on the edge of your seat until the very end. Hard to put it down and it wraps up any loose ends in the 4 book series. It was a great ending. I was so happy for her, I shed a tear. Find out why and read it.

    It starts out a little dark and depressing, but it gets better as she leaves home because of what she did wrong. As time goes by, she discovers herself and makes life changing decisions that gets her in and out of trouble for others. Lots of action and drama with some romance and family. A must read.

    Story
    "Great"

    I really like this book and its series. It draws me in with a full cast of speakers so that every character has there on distinctive voice.

    This book made me think about my own life and the people around me if they where good influence for me or bad and if I'm a good or bad influence to be around and if I'm bad I am the one that needs to change to help others around me.

    I would encourage others to listen or read this book and get there on meaning out of this.

    Story
    "I Love this book, but Razo..."

    I just started listening to this and I'm not sure I can finish. in the last two books, Razo's voice was perfect. He sounded mischievous and friendly and laid back. Forest born. In this book something about his voice reminds me more of a silly, sickly man raised in a palace with a snotty tutor. It changes the way I imagine him and that's not acceptable. He's just about my favorite character. I'm sure there was some circumstance that made the change of voice necessary but I just really wish that weren't the case or that they chose someone more Razo-ish. I almost want to rate the performance lower, but so far everyone else is great. I love Rinna's voice. But, RAZO!

    Story
    "Felt a bit dragged out"
    What could Shannon Hale have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    The idea and basic storyline was interesting but it was rather dragged out and probably could have been better enjoyed as an abridged audiobook. There was a lot of the character's self reflection and that definitely slowed the story down.
