Anidori-Kiladra Talianna Isilee, Crown Princess of Kildenree, spends the
first years of her life under her aunt's guidance learning to
communicate with animals. As she grows up Ani develops the skills of
animal speech, but is never comfortable speaking with people, so when
her silver-tongued lady-in-waiting leads a mutiny during Ani's journey
to be married in a foreign land, Ani is helpless and cannot persuade
anyone to assist her. Becoming a goose girl for the king, Ani
eventually uses her own special, nearly magical powers to find her way
to her true destiny. Shannon Hale has woven an incredible, original and
magical tale of a girl who must find her own unusual talents before she
can become queen of the people she has made her own.

1 . An Amazing Writer and an Amazing Story
Posted April 27, 2010 by Melena , GRThis book had me on the edge of my seat the entire time. Yet it made me laugh and at one point I had tears in my eyes. The characters were so well developed and their personalities reminded me of the people I enjoy being with. I was captivated by all the magic, and I wish I was part of it all... Shannon Hale is now one of my favorite writers!
