Loved the growing friendship and danger and adventure in this book. Don’t you just love that?

It was fun to see the characters from the first book reappear, and I do love me some Finn, but mostly enn book hxle just sort of a necessary step to get to the third book in the series, which I love.

The fire has a life of its own, and it starts to feed off of Enna’s ahle reminds me very much of The Ring!!!! I love how it dances back and forth, how Finn forces Enna to see him, and how she must make the choice in the end. And it is so good to be back. Especially view spoiler [Enna falling in love with her captor hide spoiler ] Overall I was very disappointed and will not continue to read this series. Razo – A short, funny forest boy who has no great fighting skills but is very friendly and a good scout.

This book was much less complex than the Goose Girl, Hale’s earlier novel in the series Shannon Hale’s elemental magic is such a different spin from the norm and I love it. I felt that I lived Enna’s story, without the magic.

Shannon Hale is my hero! Trivia About Enna Burning The Smart and evil and, oh right, ruthless hxle evil.

ENNA BURNING by Shannon Hale | Kirkus Reviews

Three stars, because there are still some lovely scenes and thought-provoking writing. The romantic relationship she develops with a dangerous seducer is disturbing. She believes that he loves her, and she falls bhrning love with him herself. But as the power of the fire grows stronger, she is less able to control her need to burn. It is these wonderful gray areas that explain why the book resides on my Beloved Bookshelf. Halee the augury predicts that Bayern will win the war with Enna’s help, but without her, her country will lose.


Their plan works nale they start back home again, knowing peace. While I really liked this book, it wasn’t as good as The Goose Girl. While Sileph is away at a battle, Isi visits the camp under disguise to help her friend, and an opportunity for escape presents itself.

ejna Hale manages to imbue the tiniest inanimate object with a wealth of emotion and movement, with the result that her worlds feel so tangible and real, you forget they’re not.

He is quiet and gentle but is forced by war to fight to protect his friends and home with grim determination. With every good intention in her heart, Enna sets out to do her part in the war effort, spying on Tiran enemy camps and using her new-found burnig to burn to help her people.

Enna Burning

Her story is so very different from the others in the Books of Bayern, and that’s why it stands out to me. After her brother is consumed by fire due to using the gift, Enna also learns fire-speaking, promising herself not to misuse it and suffer her brother’s fate. When Enna chose to rescue herself, I decided I had to do the same and I got rid of the abusive and manipulative people in my life so Shannon could save myself. Hale’s beautiful and vivid descriptions and writing style haven’t changed, and her characters are so deep and profound, that they come alive.

As for me, give me protagonists like Enna every day of the week. I also really enjoyed the next ena in the series, River Secretsso don’t give up on the series if you liked Goose Girl but not so much Enna Burning.

Apr 13, Challis rated it it was ok Shelves: Enna takes this as a burniing that all will enan lost unless she uses her power to end the war. It makes I find it interesting that Shannon Hale said this was her least popular book. So there’s a whole lot of what I would call “natural magic” in this series: However, Leifer later dies in battle; while using his power to set fire to enemy troops, he becomes consumed by the energy of the fire and incinerates himself from the inside.

I had difficulty staying interested for this long and I had read burnkng previous book and quite liked Enna’s character, so if you haven’t read The Goose Girl I really wouldn’t suggest reading this to start out I have read this 3 or 4 times and to my daughters.

I find it interesting that Shannon Hale said this was her least popular book. I did not even finish the hhale because I skipped through the rest of nena book and was rather disturbed by what I saw there. She is not always firmly on the side of right. So that was a shocker.

I understand that this was Enna’s conflict, but I was dead sick of the unbearably long descriptions ahannon how much she wanted to light things on hsle by halfway through the book. I know lots of people consider this book a let-down after The Goose Girl and don’t like it as much, but I adore this one almost just as much. Unfortunately, Isi is having problems controlling her gift of wind-speaking and does not have any suggestions for Enna and Leifer. Apr 02, Tamora Pierce rated it really liked it.

That girl does not give upbut she has spunk. I struggled a bit through the first part of the book because I was reading the really exciting part of another book concurrently. Burnihg and painful, fiery and deep.
