‘Gloriously cinematic and completely enthralling’ – Independent

In the time of cruelty, the Manth people march back to their homeland. Ira Hath is the only one who knows the way, but she is dying. Bowman eagerly awaits his calling to join the Singer people, but when Kestrel is taken by bandits, he must use his powers to find her. Together they fight, until their destinies tear them apart. And all the while they wait for the wind to rise. Only one will sing the firesong . . .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Read read read!! In the same way that Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials series tackles adult themes within a children's setting, so does William Nicholson's Wind Singer trilogy. Absolutely wonderfully written, extremely engaging, and provocative. Highly recommended!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fitting Conclusion to the Wind on Fire Trilogy Action, plot twists, character development...Firesong was a great conclusion to the trilogy. Short summary from Goodreads: "The story picks up with the flight of the Hath family, and their crew of other willing Manth families and friends, away from the ruined Mastery. After the defeat of the Master, alone and displaced, they seek a new homeland but have no real destination and very little food. Ira Hath leads the way, prophesising their eventual success but also her own, sad demise. Bowman and Kestrel Hath, brother and sister, carry burdens of their own. Bowman, in particular, is anxious. He awaits a summons from the Sirene, and must make a great sacrifice for his people. The journey is long, and his preparation is tough - especially in the unforgiving hands of an unexpected teacher."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fire Song Bought this just a few hours ago. But could not stop reading it until the end! Extremely complex, yet extremely simple and 5 orally satisfying!
