This book finished up the Wren series, which I planned as a teen. I stayed with it; as an adult, it interested me to follow Teressa and Hawk, both of whom had fairly hefty cases of PTSD, as each tried to make their way to a moral center from utterly opposite backgrounds.

Wren was always fun to write, especially seen through Connor's eyes.
This was the first of the Wren books I had read, and I thought it was just wonderful. I have now gone to my favorite booksellers to check on buying all of the other books in the series.

These characters are all well written, and I could tell the history, feeling, animosity for all of them, even without the back story many of the other readers may may have had. I love that there is plenty of action in the book without it being bloody and gory. Anyone can pick this book up and enjoy a thrilling rea...more
I loved this book! Holy cow, I was already excited just to find out there was another in the series, but then to actually read it and to have it be great, that was a really cool! I thought you could tell she has been improving as an author throughout the years. I just wish it wasn't just an e book! That was kind of obnoxious. Other than that, though, the book was excellent and I loved it!

Wait a minute, what? One of my favorite series from childhood, the one with the least satisfactory conclusion, has concluded? Why didn't I know this? And why do I only see it in eBook???
I was about eleven years old when I read Sherwood Smith’s Wren books for the first time, and I fell in love with them. Adventure, magic, a spunky, imaginative heroine, and above all, the strong bond of friendship between the four main characters drew me in. Wren is impossible not to love, and the strong-willed Princess Teressa and smart, sensible mage, Tyron, are equally wonderful. And Connor. How I loved Connor. Sweet, slightly awkward, with the ability to talk to animals – he is the epitome of...more
I was so interested to know what happened next in this series that I actually bought this book, making this the first book in ~5 years I've bought for myself. The world Smith has created is so interesting, and the plots so engaging, that it overcame my usual miserly habits.

It was a little bit of a let down, to be honest. Wren is as kind-hearted, friendly and playful as ever; but therein lies my problem. She and her friends are up against a sorcerer who, for the last three books, has killed count...more

The War is over.
For Wren’s friends this means new responsibilities in the form of a quest, the role of queen, and that of head magical advisor.
Leaving Wren at a loss.
When her own advice goes unheeded at the palace, she sets out on an adventure—a journey required of all young mages.
But this is Wren.
Which means her “routine” journey soon involves.
A stolen scrystone.
A kidnapping by pirates.
And one SERIOUS villain.

Sherwood Smith is one of my writing heroes. The first three Wren novels were published...more

When Hawk Rhiscarlan shows up at the palace, Wren is sure he's up to no good. Teressa, who has queen for two years now, is more willing to offer Hawk a second chance. Wren decides to leave home and set off to find Connor. As always, Wren handles her adventures--this time involving pirates and press gangs--with cheerful humor. Meanwhile Teressa and Tyron have a falling out about Hawk; Teressa struggles with her duty as queen and her private feelings. And evil Andreas has been plotting something n...more
This was the last book in Wren to the Rescue series that I read and loved as a child. I had always wondered what happened to the characters after Wren's War had ended on a cliffhanger and the author finished up the story with an ebook b/c publishers are horrible and weren't interested in the book.
I thought it tied up a lot of the loose ends of the story but did not necessarily end like I wanted it to end. I guess in the 15 years since I finished the series and read this book, I had imagined the...more

I'm pretty sure I was waiting for this book before I even knew it was written or published. :-) It was great to see my favorite characters again and to see some resolution come into their relationships. I didn't identify with this always-angry Teressa and I feel sad (view spoiler) Love Wren...more

This was the finial book in the Wren series. This book had action and adventure along with a side of romance that made for a very enjoyable read. I was continuously trying to predict what would happen next and was happily surprised throughout the book. I found the ending rather odd, the little epilogue was upsetting, though that might just be because it was the end of the last book. This book tied together all the loose ends from the other three.
I LOVED this series. This one was the best one!!! Sherwood Smith actually had trouble getting it published at first (I couldn't believe it when she said that on her website cause the series was so good) but she posted it on her website and I would actually sneek to the computer lab at my high school to read it!! Now I just need to buy it to have it on the shelf with the first three.
The book is written for young adults and is based around a civilisation where magic predominates. I haven't read many magic based books, despite their current popularity, but from the minute I picked it up I could hardly put it down. An excellent read. Having found it is part of a series I now need to find the earlier ones, which unfortunately are not available as ebooks
I've been following the chapter by chapter release of this, the latest, and I fear (though I hope not) final story of Wren over at Bookview Cafe

It is done... and it was a wonderful romp .
i won this book from Early Reviewers as an e-book and i loved it, it was very cool i read it on my phone so its safe to say my phone would die quickly..... it wasnt what i expected but i loved it non the less it was a great adventure and now i want to read the previous books asap....
The 4th installment definitely leans on the romantic relations of the four friends.

This books was less enjoyable due to the somewhat simpering princess. On Wren's end is a wonderful sea adventure.

Overall a cute series.

Not big on the ending--loose ends tied up in a matter of like 2 pages and not happy with who got together with who...but still a very cute book.
Here's hoping she decides to write a fifth book. I love Sherwood Smith's YA books!
Nice ending to wrap the entire series up
It was ok but I liked the others more.

I am a writer, but I'm here on Goodreads to talk about books, as I've been a passionate reader as long as I've been a writer--since early childhood.

I'm not going to rate books--there are too many variables. I'd rather talk about the reading experience. My 'reviews' of my books are confined to the writing process.
