Superb ending to a superb trilogy
I read this book in, I kid you not, three hours, that's how much I couldn't put it down. Sarah Zettel has created a wonderful world with human characters who make you scream laugh and cry. Even her immortal charcters are believable and delightfully wicked and funny. i can't wait to go adventuring in the world of Isavalta again with Sakra, Bridget, Anna and evryone else. I'd recommend this book to anyone who loves a good fantasy.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

A charming romantic fantasy
The Nine Elders of Hung-Tse called their guardian the Firebird to help them when their enemy Isavalta threatened to invade their kingdom. The Empress Medeoan using powerful magic managed to cage the Firebird for thirty years but upon her death the spell broke freeing the Firebird. The angry guardian vowed vengeance on both kingdoms. He flew to Hung-Tse and killed the nine elders, plunging the country into anarchy; in Isavalta, he took away the fire............................. Bridget Lederle, who once lived in Boyfield, Wisconsin crossed over through a magical portal to live in Isavalta where she is a powerful sorceress and part of the Emperor¿s court. The daughter she thought had died is very much alive and Bridget is determined to find her not realizing that both of them are pawns in a scheme to free a nation from Isavalta¿s rule........................... THE FIREBIRD¿S VENGEANCE is a beautiful fantasy starring a beautiful sorceress, a handsome mage and an evil wizard who threatens to destroy them all including his own daughter. Readers will empathize with Bridget who searches two worlds to find her daughter. Fans will adore nonagenarian Anna who has the wisdom and goodness that few mortals possess. Sarah Zettel is an outstanding author whose latest work will appeal to fans of Mercedes Lackey and Andre Norton............................ Harriet KlausnerWas this review helpful?
