    1. Jennifer Alvarez on said:

      THIS IS THE BOOK I WAS BORN TO READ I loved every beautiful moment, word, image, and character The writing is lavish, the imagery intense The writer uses archaic words to great effect, creating a universe that feels foreign but familiar, new but also ancient This story brings the world of the unicorns to life They are graceful moondancers and bearded warriors who have been kicked out of their homeland by cunning wyverns Intelligent pans, aggressive gryphons, and renegade unicorns also surround t [...]

      This was the first true fantasy story I ever read as a youngster It was what led me to other authors, like McCaffrey, and my continued descent into UF and the entire paranormal genre.I still have the original mass market paperback that I bought from the school s book club.And yet I never evenknew there were sequels to it.I think one of the things I liked about Pierce s writing, and this book in particular, the most was the worldbuilding The way she took a nonhuman sentient species and gave them [...]

      I don t remember how this book ended up in my hands but I do remember the condition it was in, missing cover with pages torn and corners bent I found a sleeve of plastic and gently wrapped it up, deciding the best place to store it was nestled in the stuffed animal net hanging above the top right hand corner of my bed High and out of reach for a younger sister that couldn t keep her grubby paws off of anything I owned and especially treasured.I adored this book from the second I laid eyes on it [...]

    4. Brennan on said:

      I thought this would read kinda childish based on the concept, but I was v pleasantly surprised by the use of language and some of the beautiful sentences The plot was intriguing, the conflict exciting, and I am than excited to read the rest of the series.

    5. Mel on said:

      This book long predates such animal based series as Warriors, and it far outshines them It was published back in my childhood, and is a three part series The first is the best and most interesting read, rife with a wonderful prophecy, very accurate animal depiction, and great fantasy elements It is set among a group of war unicorns, yet these unicorns are nothing like the white, virgin seeking typical story we see These unicorns are a varied, honorable, dangerous race that is in the middle of an [...]

    6. Raven on said:

      One of the best books I ve read in a long time.It starts off slow Typical misfit prince who doesn t see things his father s way As the story progresses there is increasingly a sense that things aren t quite what they seem The mythology is rich, the storytelling is excellent, and the characters are real enough that you rage when they rage, or feel wonder when they feel wonder.Earlier this week I asked a friend why I subject myself to things that inevitably leave me feeling what my generation is c [...]

    7. Shane on said:

      This is a moving and timeless book about growing up Reading it is one of my fondest childhood memories Whenever a thunderstorm is rising, I think of it.

    8. Jennifer on said:

      I KNOW I ve read this book before In fact I m sure I ve read the entire series The title and plot synopsis was so familiar to me, but I didn t remember the storyline in any sort of detail I must have read it when I was young.Having said that, this book reads very maturely for YA I find that it s written in a classic style So, I m delighted to have rediscovered it The trouble now, will be in obtaining the other 2 books in the series.

    10. Annye on said:

      I m abandoning this one the cheese is just too great There is definitely a place for cheese in my heart but I m just not in the mood right now RobinHobbBookHangover2017 I wish I had known about this book when I was 10

    11. Margaret on said:

      I wanted to like this series than I did, because I like Pierce s Darkangel books and her short stories so much It s about unicorns, which I was a little worried about, but I thought Pierce pulled that off pretty well, actually her unicorns aren t pretty, fluffy things, but warriors who fight for their lives and land against other beasts, gryphons and wyverns I think what I mostly didn t like was the main character, Jan the unicorn prince, who was all too often particularly in the last book incr [...]

    12. Kachera on said:

      As a kid I bought this book for the cover It had a unicorn, and I was horse crazy I dove in and fell in love, though I m sure I missed all the subtext about how Jan s journey might perhaps relate to my own young teen aged struggles None the less, I cherished this book, and years later read it again as an adult with new perspective I love it even now This is the kind of book all parents, uncles, aunts, anyone who mentors kids should pass on to the young readers in their lives It is full of lesso [...]

    13. Rachel on said:

      Though Meredith Ann Pierce has clearly thought through the rules under which her society of unicorns should operate, there is something about this book, the first in the Firebringer trilogy, that doesn t quite click Readers who can slip easily into the blatant personification of the unicorn characters will likely enjoy this book, but as a reader I would probably have enjoyed a novel that takes a further step away from writing about humans, and challenges the reader not only to empathize with no [...]

    14. Emily on said:

      Another childhood favorite I will never tire of rereading Pierce has perfected high fantasy without resorting to swordplay or even humans in this case Perfect for fans of The Last Unicorn, The Princess Bride, and The Neverending Story all of which you MUST read in novel form, they re all extraordinary.

    15. Jennifer on said:

      yes, this is a young adult book about UNICORNSbut it will always be one of my favorites as it was my very first taste of fantasy fiction, this book is the one that got me addicted to reading And I only picked it up by accident when I was in 6th grade ok, so I think I might have been 21 when I stopped believing in unicorns, yes i am a dork, suck it

    16. Kelsi on said:

      Wow Just, wow This book is breathtaking The rich storytelling, fantastic world building, unforgettable characters, incredible deliverance and fascinating plot make readers unable to put this book down You ll be flying through the pages and before you know it, you ll be finished, awed 5 out of 5 stars, a favorite for years to come

    17. Kat on said:

      Gorgeous writing, epic storyline, and UNICORNS Super awesome warrior unicorns with magic and visions and prophecies and ancient mortal enemies that they sing songs about and what I m saying is that this book is awesome and you should read it Because unicorns.

      This weekend past, my husband Terry and I had to make a 15 hour overnight drive from Georgia back home to Massachusetts Our chariot was a rusted out U Haul with no cruise control Terry experiences motion sickness while reading in the car, and the noise of the cabin made it difficult to understand podcasts through the small speaker we d brought with us, so he did much of the driving while I read to him over the roar of the highway I d set aside an anthology of short horror stories that I thought [...]

    19. rosamund on said:

      Unicorns, as fantasy creatures, fascinate me, and this book is an enjoyable adventure in a world populated with dragons, unicorns, and pans satyrs Jan, the main character, is a young, hot headed prince, running wild in the mountains, hiding from ferocious gryphons, little suspecting he is destined to be a hero The fantasy elements are not unique, but it s nice to read a book that focuses solely on mythological animals, and it s so rare that this feels fresh My main problem with this novel is tha [...]

    20. Katherine Smith on said:

      Not bad Fans of nonhuman characters will probably like it It s along the lines of the Warriors series by Erin Hunter, but maybe a bit better Not as good as Tailchaser s Song by Tad Williams Nowhere near the masterpiece of Watership Down but I don t think it s meant to be Obviously intended for young adults, a good dose of action, magic, interesting creatures, clear story progression, some bits predictable, other bits surprising Author could have a done a bit fact checking or research on equines [...]

    21. GuineaPigFalconer on said:

      I was skeptical going into this book, and it took me the first hundred or so pages to realize that I was truly enjoying it The language is beautiful and the characters, particularly Jan and Tek, are lovely I liked the revelation of so many secrets at once at the end of the novel, and I look forward to seeing what the Firebringer does in the rest of the series

    22. Sydney Rhyne on said:

      By far the best book in the series, BotF has been my favorite book since I was, like, 10 I picked it back up 12 years later to read it again and loved it just as much The writing is fabulous, and reading it again as an adult was like re discovering a treasure hoard The second book is great, but the third one sadly falls flat.

    23. Jessi on said:

      I really had higher hopes for this book I feel like it needed way filler and descriptions to beef up the story It would just jump from one thing to the next I did like the fantasy aspect of it and the overall story though.

    24. Lea Taranto on said:

      The kind of book I would have treasured as a child and still enjoyed reading as an adult, lush language simple but solid foundations of world building are laid here as well as the promise of what is to come from Aljan s destiny.

    25. Te'Tum on said:

      I fell absolutely in love with this little book The language is elegant and poetic, the plot complex and multi layered and the characters entertaining and believable I could not put this book down and I find myself impatient to read the sequel.

    26. Gale on said:

      ARE HEROES BORN OR MADE BIRTH OF THE FIREBRINGER could easily inspire a trilogy, for author Meredith Ann Pierce has created a rich tapestry of mystic threads and dynamic hues resulting in fascinating reading This dark fantasy, for adults than Young Adults despite the teenage protagonist presents an exotic, pre human world of mythological creatures Unicorns our heroes , gryphons wing cats , pards plains cats , dragons of course , pans goat like satyrs , and at the bottom of evil s food chain the [...]

    27. Elaine on said:

      I enjoy this trilogy and with each reread It s an easy one to get lost in you quickly get caught up in the life of Jan, the unicorn prince, and his people Meredith Ann Pierce has a wonderful writing style, with old fashioned words that really add to the scene.While it s true the plot is a little cliched a hero who was prophesied to save his people discovers his destiny this one has a unique twist because the main characters are unicorns These are not the cutesy, rainbow sparkly unicorns most p [...]

      Just finished this fun summer read with my kids tonight All my kids from age 5 to 12 loved it and got different things from it according to their understanding This book had a huge foundational impact on me as a child It is the book that made me want to be a writer If I remember the story right, this author began this story as her first big novel when she was about 10 She then shelved it for years and years, feeling that she didn t have the wisdom or maturity to do the story justice Then when sh [...]
