What I Thought:I love all these books and they are so good!Enna Burning is a little depressing and there is one part that is bad in it but other than that her books are clean.

Rating & Age:5 out of5 stars. 14 up.



  1. I LOOVEEEE these books!!! They're amazing! I really didn't like Enna Burning--like you said, it was depressing--and I thought Forest Born was, too. But The Goose Girl and River Secrets are definitely two of my favorite books. I love Finn.:) (who doesn't? ^_^)

  2. I want to name one of my sons Finn.
    I love them all!I couldn't pick a favorite.
    FINN IS AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. I'm looking forward to your reviews!
