Volume One of the Firebringer Trilogy

Jan, the prince of the unicorns, is high-spirited, reckless-and the despair of his mighty father, Korr. Reluctantly, Korr allows Jan to accompany the other initiate warriors on a pilgrimage. Soon Jan's curiosity leads him, along with his friend Dagg, and their mentor, the female warrior Tek, into the greatest dangers-deadly gryphons, sly pans, wyverns, pards, and renegade unicorns. Yet time after time they are rescued, leading Jan to wonder: Am I the heir to a special destiny?

"The language is poetic, with wonderful rhythm and sweeping images...The world is a compelling one, and Jan is a dramatic hero."—Booklist

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unicorn Lovers Unite This is the first book in what is one of the best series of books written from a animals perspective, in this case a herd of unicorns. There is the rebellious teenager, the strict father, the kind mother and of course a trip with danger involved. One can almost forget that this is about unicorns the likeness to human qualities that are in every character in this book. If you a re looking for a series that you can read over and over this is one to try, and the fact that there are unicrons doesn't hurt either.

"The language is poetic, with wonderful rhythm and sweeping images...The world is a compelling one, and Jan is a dramatic hero."—Booklist"The untangling of the satisfying plot and Pierce's ability to foster belief in her unicorns, consistently describing the action as these horse-like animals feel and sense it, are enhanced by her stately use of language and the sense of their history and culture which she creates and sustains."—School Library Journal
