About the Author

Shannon's mother says she was a storyteller from birth, jabbering endlessly in her carriage as the two strolled through the neighborhood; once she could form complete sentences, she made up stories, bribing her younger siblings to perform them in mini plays. When she was ten, she began writing books, mostly fantasy stories where she was the heroine, and she continued writing secretly for years while pursuing acting in stage and improv comedy. After detours studying in Mexico, the U. K., and Paraguay, Shannon earned a bachelor's degree in English from the University of Utah and a Masters in Creative Writing from the University of Montana. In the interim, she submitted short stories and novels to magazines and publishers, saving all her rejection letters which she has since laminated into one continuous 60-foot roll which she proudly unfurls to audiences as a testament to her dedication and determination.

Since the publication of her first book, The Goose Girl, in 2003, Shannon has become a beloved author to young readers as well as booksellers and educators. Her third novel, Princess Academy, earned her a Newbery Honor and is a The New York Times, Book Sense, and Publishers Weekly bestseller. Shannon has also written two books for adults, Austenland and The Actor and the Housewife. Shannon lives in Salt Lake City, Utah, with her husband, Dean, their children, and their pet, a small plastic pig.

I walked into the library and found this book. When I went to check it out the woman told me a surprising fact. That this book wasn't checked out ever before. They got the book 3 years ago and noone borrowed it. After reading the book I didn't get why people didnt read it. It was such and excellent book. It is about a girl named Enna who learned the gift of fire speaking after her brother died from fire speaking overwhelming him. Soon the fire overwhelmms her and she burns and kills thousnands of Tiran soldiers. Then Tira captures her. The person keeping her in captivity is a greedy people speaker who got her to think that he was in love with her. Soon she reunites with her friends and beats Tira in war. But, the fire is still overwelming her. So she has to have her friend help her. But, her friend is being overwhelmed with wind speaking. So they have to go to Yasid to find out how to solve the problem. It sounds confusing when I explain it, but it really isn't. Don't be like other people and give this book a chance.

Shannon Hale's sequel, Enna Burning, spotlights Isi's friend who hinted at being fascinated with fire. In this novel, however, Enna is not only captivated by its colors and radience, but a prisoner to its power. After Leifer returns,Enna notices he acts differently and his amazing skill with fire, along with his secretivity. During battle, he burns alive as the fire he once learned to control, controls him. Enna takes on this new language to better learn what happened to her brother, Leifer, but becomes distant from Isi and her friends. She becomes overwhelmed with the burdan of heat and life around her. While Enna searches as a scout, she is caught and captured. Her warrant- a handsome young man, who is smitten with her. Filling her with trust and ideas, they start to fall for each other. But the line between master and slave is still so thick. In order to ensure their safety, the Tiran (enemy) capture Razo and Finn as prisoner, too. Enna must decide if she is Bayern or Tiran...because no one can win without Enna.

I love all the books in the series. I have only just started the 4th book, Forest Born, but I am sure that it will be just as good as the other books.
