Why did they feel the need to reissue the covers for this series? I liked the old covers! And they didn't have that hack Stephanie Meyer's blurb on the front, which made me twitch in the bookstore as soon as I noticed.

This wasn't as good as The Goose Girl, but was still a very good read. There's war! Intrigue! Fire magic! New and strange lands! Enna Burning explores the darker side of the nature gifts, including Isi's wind power. There is a prevalent theme of control - both over powers and over yourself - while the story is set in a situation where the characters have no control. A neighboring kingdom has invaded Bayern and declared war. In this setting, the characters we first met in The Goose Girl have a harsh coming of age, and trial by sword and fire to deal with.

I'm already reading the third book.
