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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“This full-cast production enhances Hale’s engrossing story as the fantasy world of Bayern continues…Especially noteworthy performances come from narrators Camille Cady-McCrea as Rin and Terry LeCass as Razo…Production shows an equally high standard. In particular, the sound effect used for Rin’s thoughts is subtle, and twists of music seamlessly connect story segments.” AudioFile
“All is told in Hale’s assured voice, drawing the details of her invented countries with precision and depth. Strong characters define the series: commanding Isi, passionate Enna, wily Razo, and now shadowed Rin. Newcomers will find this book an easy entry point, and fans will need no excuse to dive back into Hale’s fantasy world.” Horn Book
“One doesn’t need to have read the earlier books to become enraptured by this one, but doing so adds to the richness of these very satisfying tales.” Kirkus Reviews
