Sorry if its a little jumbled but their is just so many things going on in this book. I couldn't put this down while I was reading it. Ever since Rin was little she has had a connection with the forest but after an incident with a neighborhood boy they have drawn away from her. Now when she touches them she can fill this worm of evil inside of her. Razo, her brother comes to visit and he suggests she come to the city with him. At the city she becomes a lady in waiting for the Queen of Bayern. Listening to the other ladies babble and watching over Tusken, the little prince. Cecile another lady in waiting comes back and Rin can tell she means Tusken harm. An attack is made on a village so the king and his guards including Razo go out to help. Once there they are attacked by Fire-speakers. Rin listens while the Queen talks with her friends but something is strange in the way they are talking. Saying that her, Enna, and Dasha are riding out alone. What is so strange about these girls and why does Rin feel so compelled to be with them. I haven't read any of the other Books of Bayern and this is the fourth one but I still loved it. The only time it was confusing is that all the characters from the other books are in it and it would have made the book even better if I had read their stories also. Forest Born is more on the adventurous-finding-yourself theme while I can tell that romance played a major part in the other books. Rin is so self conscious of herself. Always wanting to be a good person that it makes you really admire and relate to her. The book is very descriptive and I felt like I was standing right beside the characters the whole time. If you like books like Graceling then you'll love this series. The only complaint I have is at times days would pass in a sentence and I wish at those times that she would have kept the story going. I probably wouldn't have picked this book up on my own because I don't like the cover very much. Other than that this book is a must read and I'm going to read the rest of Shannon Hale's books as soon as I can. I can just image Enna's tale is going to be great because she is such a descriptive character.

I <3 the Books of Bayern soo much. BUt I was worried when I picked this up. I said, a new character? Can she do it? SHE DID! Rin was so amazingg, not to mention the full return of Razo, Isi, Enna, Dasha, Finn, and Geric. Plus little Tusken! Got to love him! Read it, my friends, you'll love it. But only if you've read the others first!

The only book I ever read that was better was the first book in the series, and it was close. This one has incorporated a brand new character,Rin, and is filled with action,evil,magic,family,comitment,love,and friendship that will leave you begging for more( I sure was).

This book is dazzling and amazing! No book I've read in my life has had me so hooked ( except the hunger games pls. Read). I feel like crying every time I can't read it. This is an amazing book that would be stupid to not read. Wish i could give it ten million stars.

This is the BEST out of all of Shanon Hale's books, in my opinion! I could NOT put it down!!!!! One thing about it is that if you haven't read the other previous books, it might be a bit confusing; so i would recomend reading them first (If not all of them, even just reading the Goose Girl would be helpful, just to let you get to know the characters). All in all, it is a GREAT book, i would recomend it to anyone! An awesome read from beginning to end :D

This is an amazing book, but all the errors make it hard to read, like the random capital letters or the spaces in the middle of the words.

Shannon Hale is one of the best young adult fiction writers ever! She carefully crafts her stories and hooks you right from the start.

I am beyond excited. I love the books of Bayern and was so sad because I thought she was down writing about them. Goose Girl is my favorite book ever. I reread it every year. I can't wait till this book comes out. I'm jumping with joy on the inside. The books are just incredible. I love the characters, especially Razo and I love the way she rights about the connection between Isi, Enna, and Dasha. It makes it seem so much more real and possible to think of the characters not as having special powers but as being able to hear and speak to the forces of nature. It's absolutely brilliant. I can't wait. I am so pre-ordering this.

I absolutely LOVE the books of Bayern! I had thought River Secrets was the last one, but then I found about Forest Born! I'm sure Forest Born will be as good as the others. I cannot wait until it comes out! My favorite book of all time is Enna Burning (though it's almost a tie with River Secrets) The first time I read Goose Girl I completely fell in love with the series and the characters!

This is the 4th book in the "Books of Bayern" series and is just as good as the others. Recommend all of the books for strong characters and interesting action.

Even though I enjoyed the previous books in this series, Shannon Hale does it once again! I got lost in the magic many times! The only negative thing I have to say about this book is that Rinna is a bit whiney and I found it hard to relate to her like I did with Isi, Enna, and Razo. But overall- GREAT BOOK!!! :D
