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 as they venture into the Forest.

I read these books when they first came out, loved them. got the Kindle books with whisper sync for my daughter, first goose girl, then enna burning. she listened to them on loop, day after day. we bought river secrets for a family road trip, then this one for the ride home. the cast has been amazing for the first three books, but suddenly, all the voices are different. things happen, but I'm sad they didn't get to keep the cast for all four books.

worst version I ever heard. sticky sweet, illogical, and jumpy. the fairy tales don't try to make sense.
