From the Publisher
Annotation Adventure, friendship, and a sweet coming-of-age story combine beautifully in the fourth volume in the bestselling Books of Bayern series. Razzo's younger sister, Rin, is a quiet girl who always kept to herself. She's harboring a shameful secret, one that would change the way everyone thought about her. When she goes to the city with Razzo to join Enna, Isi, and Dasha, Rin finds herself unfurling and transforming. When an evil force becomes known, Rin must use everything she has to challenge it, unleashing everything.
Editors Note Unable to find comfort amongst the tall trees in the forest she calls home, Rin takes her secret and moves to the city to be with her brother in the hopes of getting answers to questions that have been plaguing her mind her entire life.
Editors Note 2 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.Once again, Newbery Honor-winning author Shannon Hale brings readers to a world where great friendships, unexpected plot twists, and a little dose of magic make for incredible storytelling.
