Overview

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

Praise

“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
