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.

Editorial Reviews

"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
