Enna Burning by Shannon Hale is the second in the Bayern series. In this one, Enna’s brother Leifer, and then Enna, learn fire-speaking. In the midst of war with Tira, Leifer burns himself out and Enna nearly does. Meanwhile, wind-speech threatens to overwhelm Isi. Throughout the story, Enna learns about herself and grows and changes a lot.
The book is split into four parts. It could have ended after the third part, but the fourth is the sweetest. Typical Shannon Hale, the writing is flowery and conjures up beautiful images through her words. My favorite thing about Enna Burning is how it highlights the importance of unconditional friends. This book is excellent for tweens on up to adults!
