May 28, Tanja rated it really liked it. Having grown up in a large family I could instantly identify with Rin. She is the youngest agget-kin and just does not know where she fits. So she imitates. How many of us do this? We try to figure out what our parents, brothers, sisters, friends want us to be and we try to imitate that.
Rin was grown up for her age of She was introspective and aware that she is not the only one that matters. Very unlike normal teenagers. I enjoyed this book the most out of the bayern series. I feel like I h Having grown up in a large family I could instantly identify with Rin.
I feel like I have watched the characters grow up and change. Isi has become a mother and a queen, Enna has learned to love herself and others, Razo has come to understand that even normal people hold great power, and finally Rin learned that it is the person who makes gifts what they are, not the gift itself.
Shannon Hale writes fairy tales for the teenage girl. And frequently her message is that we can do hard things. That is something lost in our culture. I also believe that there are people who have people-speaking. I have met them, and they will destroy those that are closest to them. Yet, the ones they hurt keep coming back.
I wish when I was a teenager I could have spotted these people better and then I could have avoided them. A very worthwhile read! Move over Cinderella and Snow White.

A disappointing end to the Books of Bayern quartet. Having heard about Razo's little sister Rinna in earlier books, I was looking forward to seeing what she was like as a character. I don't have River Secrets to hand, but in that book Razo describes his sister as "someone annoying that you can't help loving".
From that, I assumed that Rin would actually have a personality, but no. She was completely bland. How can you identify with someone who's determined to be nothing and changes her personali A disappointing end to the Books of Bayern quartet. How can you identify with someone who's determined to be nothing and changes her personality to fit in with whoever she's speaking to?
I think the book would have been far more interesting if Hale had focused on Rin's people-speaking and explored what it's like having such power when you want to be a good person. Instead it was all about Rin's tree-speaking, which -- given that trees are inanimate objects -- led to lots of one-sided rumination on Rin's part. And by rumination I mean wangst.
Her internal struggle that runs through most of the book was desperately boring. Rin discovering that she could move in slow-motion seemed utterly ridiculous. Just so Hale could write a climactic scene like something out of the Matrix, I suspect. Also, the idea of tree-speaking balancing out people-speaking didn't sit quite right with me.
But I like that Forest Born was about trusting yourself and allowing yourself to blossom and walk in the sunlight and be powerful, especially after so long of hiding in the shadows and pretending to be nothing. That's a good message. It's just a shame it was smothered by a dull and repetitive story. I have to say, I was as impressed as Razo by the term "fire sisters".
I cringed every time I read it. Not that Razo was much better. Speaking of cringing, I'm not fond of reading scenes with young children, like when Tusken is all, "Win! Considering this is a teen book, it seemed out of place. And now for the big spoiler: Selia was behind everything! Selia started the war, Selia did this, Selia did that. It made everything from the previous books seem cheap.
Revealing that there was a big villain behind the scenes all along made it less real. Instead of there being larger forces at work -- the Tiran war, Ledel training his own fire-speakers -- it was all down to Selia.
It's such a cop-out. Whatever happened to shades of grey, and everyone having their own motivation? Selia can't be the only evil person in the world.
Before this revelation it felt like there was a whole WORLD in these books, with hundreds of stories and threads and plot intertwining -- and now. View all 5 comments.
Feb 08, Cara rated it it was amazing Recommended to Cara by: I don't know why every single time I pick up one of these books I'm always surprised that it draws me in so quickly. After I turned the last page I decided right there and then that one day I'm going to re-read the whole series again, and cross my fingers that Shannon Hale will get the notion to make one more. Though I should add, that really like with the other books it can stand alone and ends well.
For the fourth book of Bayern we get to explore the life of Razo's little sister, Rin.
Rin is I don't know why every single time I pick up one of these books I'm always surprised that it draws me in so quickly. Rin is the good girl, Ma's favorite child and Razo's best friend. She can do no wrong but Rin knows the truth. Rin can listen to the trees but what really eats her is a secret that she's been hiding for too long. Unbeknownst to her, that secret she harbors will be a key part in saving the great Kingdom of Bayern.
Hale is just perfect at world building. She gets better every time. Every book a building block in the knowledge of this world. I feel like this place actually exists, and that really is creating magic.
Rin's story was a bit difficult to read because at one point you just feel just as defeated as her and beat down, but you just know that somehow they all will figure something out. You kind of grow up with them and see how they've changed but also keep true to themselves. The plot had great pacing but I won't go into that so you can be good and surprised once you read it. I feel in a way that I have a kinship to Bayern and will always root for them.
By the end of the story Forest born Rin learns that being your true self sometimes takes time to find out, but that's ok and just part of the road we all go through. Jan 25, Liaken rated it it was ok Shelves: Drawn out. Page after page saying the same plot piece.
Characters re-enacting their same "idiosyncrasies" endlessly--every time they open their mouths. One of the characters was so repetitious and persistent, that I skimmed whatever he said toward the end of the book.
There is also a very strong and frightening co-dependency that is only given a passing nod rather than actually being dealt with. Through most of the book, the main character is addressed in a condescending, mocking, or Belabored. Through most of the book, the main character is addressed in a condescending, mocking, or set-apart manner--like she's not a real person.
Her brother is the worst culprit, yet she's supposed to love him more than anyone. The humor in the book tries way too hard. It's like every time Hale wrote a line that could be interpreted in a different way, she turned it into a joke. It gets old. And the joking manner of the females and how the males love them best when they are angry or murderous--not funny either. Condescending toward all the women, again. The writing is loose and baggy; it reads like an early draft.
The great thing about her first novel, Goose Girl, was that she had obviously reworked the story and rewritten it until it was truly finished. Not this one. In short, Hale's editor failed her. Her editor should have said, "This is a good idea Shannon. Go rewrite it a few times and then we'll see if it's more fully formed.
You have some good moments. Let's get it in print and make more money! Unless someone whose taste I trust recommends something by her, I think I'll just let her go by now. Too many disappointments in a row. Goose Girl is still her best book. BY FAR. Aug 31, Laina rated it it was amazing. I almost feel guilty giving this five stars after reading Shannon's latest blogs on star-ratings, but I can't help myself! This book Let me try to put this into words.
Shannon Hale has outdone herself It was different then her other books I felt like she wrote this book specifically for me; it's taken such a special part in my heart. The writing was wonderful. Of course. Enough said. The sto I almost feel guilty giving this five stars after reading Shannon's latest blogs on star-ratings, but I can't help myself!
The story was original, intriguing, and the POV made the feeling absolutely relatable, heart-wrenching, and magical. Rin was a wonderful character who I absolutely love. She was a very different voice in the series. What I love, is even after their books are over, Shannon's supporting characters continue to grow.
For example, in this book, you see how Isi has kept growing. So overall, absolutely amazing! I suggest it to any fan of the series, and if you haven't read the Book of Bayern yet, I highly suggest you pick them up next time you're at the library.

Jul 04, Elizabeth Miss Eliza rated it it was ok Shelves: Another Bayern book, which I wasn't really wild about My problem was that Rin was such a non-character, in the beginning. She is quite literally a shadow who eventually takes form.
And it's hard to identify with a shadow. I will not spoil the two big twists Shannon Hale has said not to spoil, because that's just mean. I will say that I felt the book had too many cliches, Isi has a baby, baby i Another Bayern book, which I wasn't really wild about I will say that I felt the book had too many cliches, Isi has a baby, baby in jeopardy time, and old enemies always return for the sequel.
Full Review: 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.
She has written two adult books, another adaptation of a fairy tale and a graphic novel. But with Forest Born she finally gives us readers what we have been waiting for, a return to Bayern. In this book we follow Rin, Razo's little sister.
Her abilities are far different to any of the "fire sisters" we have seen before, which also leads to a new more free flowing, train of thought writing when we are in Rin's mind. We see all the characters we love and learn what has been happening in their lives. But I had problems with Rin as the focal point of all these intertwined lives.
Rin is such a non-character, in the beginning, and she was obviously written as such. But it is hard to befriend a shadow. It is hard to identify with a wraith. It is hard to take a girl into your heart who you aren't sure who she is.
But then again she doesn't know who she is either, and therefore your unease with her mirrors her own feelings about herself very well. I found Rin and her powers fascinating, but I think her progress could have been more rapid in parts. It takes awhile to face your demons, but sometimes narratively they should be faced faster.
The journeys contained within the book, both of body and mind lead our characters to Kel.
There they do valiant deeds and Rin discovers more about herself than she originally bargained for when she followed Razo to the great city. I will not spoil anything as per the author's request, but I felt that Shannon Hale relied too much on a few cliched conventions in this book then her previous ventures. When I went to WisCon back in May I attended a panel entitled "Kick Ass Moms" wherein the authors discussed the habit of when you have a mother the cliched thing to do is to put that child in danger.
Baby jeopardy is a big theme which is overused, and Shannon Hale does use this in Forest Born.
She does handle it better than I was expecting, but still, I'm not sure it works as a driving plot force for a teen book. Also she uses the old trick of old enemies always return for the sequel.
It felt a bit like that last scene in Bruce Campbell's film, My Name is Bruce, where they have just defeated Guan-Di, and then the sequel set-up is literally two seconds later. While the end result is great, it still felt a little worn. But in the final analysis I loved seeing where our friends in Bayern have ended up and even if I wasn't wild about Forest Born the first read-through, it got the same rating I gave Enna Burning the first time, and I now love Enna!
So Forest Born might grow on me to be a four star review, now that I know Rin more I'd be willing to give it another chance. But it is strongly recommended for all those who love the denizens of Bayern. Aug 18, Kogiopsis rated it it was amazing. I first read this book years ago, as a galley, and I haven't reread it since. In the interval I've changed my own self-perception a lot, both via the 'normal' self exploration of college and via diagnoses for depression and anxiety - so it was weirdly comforting to come back to this book and remember that, years ago before I realized what was going on in my brain, I read Rin's story as an allegory for depression, and that it still holds true now.
I know there are some people who don't find this b I first read this book years ago, as a galley, and I haven't reread it since. I know there are some people who don't find this book very engaging, either for the passivity of the protagonist or the slowness of its movement, but for me those aspects are really key. All of Hale's leading ladies struggle with internal conflict, but Rin's is one of the most complex simply because she has so little sense of self.
She's not like Isi, whose conflicts are mirrored directly by external factors, or like Enna's dramatic troubles. Rin is in the painful position of not knowing much about who she is except the parts she hates, and that draws her inward to a greater degree than any of the other Bayern protagonists. As someone who often feels like there's nothing good to me, that really resonates.
Rin's slow path to self-acceptance and forward progress, while resolved a bit more neatly than actual depression, was genuinely comforting to read, and I appreciated that her emotional resolution didn't come through the resolution of the external plot but from intense reflection.
Another factor that I loved about this book - and one of the things that keeps me coming back to this series - is the complete narrative dominance of the heroines.
There are several points where they literally send their male love interests away because the women are more capable of handling the problems at hand than the men. This isn't to say that the male characters aren't good at things, but that it's refreshing to read books where ladies take the lead and their beaus serve in support roles, since it's so often the other way around.
Not only that, but the friendship between the 'fire sisters' and Rin is one of the central emotional touchstones of the book, and most of the external catalysts for Rin's growth are female characters. Shannon Hale really does do a great job of writing not only diverse, compelling female characters but also of writing friendships and support between them, and that is so important and so rare. Seeing her from Rin's perspective made her much more rounded and nuanced, and Rin's analysis of where her endless desire for power came from made me almost sympathetic towards her.
Her ending was a bit ignominious, but I can see the rationale for not letting any of the main characters kill her, and it did resolve the plot neatly. The chemistry between Isi and Enna continues to be so strong.
You can tell me Enna's in love with Finn as much as you want, but they're just not as potent as Isi and Enna together. Oct 13, Addy S. However, I really enjoyed it. Razo and Rin are and will always be two of my most favorite characters. Razo is hilarious. The two share a strong brother-sister bond which is really cool.
I will always be a fan! Oh and Enna and Finn finally get married [Edit: I loved this book so much! Rin and Razo will forever be my favorite characters!! Jan 07, Elizabeth Dragina rated it it was amazing. It was the most twisted plot! I loved it. It had so much excitement! I didn't like thou that Rin never found love. Oct 15, Jessica rated it really liked it Shelves: New gifts are discovered in this fourth Bayern book, as Rin Razo's sister takes the center stage.
View 1 comment. May 26, Kirsti rated it it was amazing. Another book in the Bayern series, this one was a whole lot of fun to read! I really felt connected to Rin, I could have almost been reading from my own perspective! I too am quiet, unassuming among people I don't know, and terrified of the unknown. I think following up from River Secrets immediately kept me grounded in this series too, because I'm still in love with Dasha and Razo as a couple!
A great YA fantasy, I'm sorry it's over. Five stars! Nov 10, Kat Hooper rated it liked it Shelves: Originally posted at Fantasy Literature. Life's too short to read bad books! She cooks, cleans, fetches the water, helps take care of all the kids, etc. When she needs a little peace, she communes with the trees of the forest. But then Rin did something bad and the trees have withdrawn their love.
She feels their disappointment and disgust with her. Now Rin feels unworthy and unloved and begins to sink into depression.
In an attempt to help, her big brother Razo invites her to join him and his new wife at the Bayern court. There she meets Queen Isi and admires her strength and confidence.
As Rin tries to find her place at court, she manages to tag along on a quest to rid Bayern of terrorists and, in the process, she discovers herself and her own worth.
At first, in Forest Born, I thought Rin was having a big pity party and I was annoyed with her constant whining about how bad she is and feeling sorry for herself all the time. The revelation puts a whole new spin on the story and I think I would have liked it better, or at least sympathized more with Rin, if I had had this information from the beginning.

She can read a feeling or a lie by looking someone in the face.
However, she keeps something inside, afraid that if she lets her secret out, she will become a monster. Rinna has the power of people-speaking, and after using this power to talk a boy into kissing her, Rinna feels wrong. She goes with her older brother Razo to the palace of Bayern to serve Queen Isi as a nursery maid.
Rinna is suspicious of one of the other maids, and it turns out this maid was trying to kidnap the prince, Tusken. The maid was working for Selia, a powerful people-speaker and old enemy of Queen Isi, who is determined to take Isi's crown, child, and life. Rinna allows herself to use her gifts in order to overthrow Selia.
The theme of confidence in yourself is woven through the story. Rinna is afraid of what she will become through people-speaking, so she emulates those around her. She shuts up her true self deep inside.
Eventually, Rinna forgives herself for past mistakes and strives to use her talents for good. She realizes her power, but chooses self-control.
