Edith Pattou is one amazing author. She can really make the words of the page just come alive. I especially noticed it in this book, which is what made it so fantastic. I can't wait for the third book to come out, and hopefully, she adds more!!!!

This book is an amazing, fullfilling read, and I really hope Edith Pattou writes a third, even fourth book to this collection. Fire Arrow:The Second Song of Eirren, is a sequel to the equally fullfilling Hero's Song. Both of these books are intriguing and will leave you wanting to know more.

I loved Hero's Song and Fire Arrow. They were both very well written. It was refreshing to switch points of veiw from Collun's to Brie's. I looked online to see what the Third book is called. She hasn't written it yet? I'll stand in line when it does come out, hope that's sometime soon.

After six years of waiting for the second song of eirren, it finally came out. Since the very first time i read it in 1992, i've become addicted. after waiting 6 years, i've finally got the second book. now, i've been waiting 4 years and counting. I know it'll be worth the wait. EDITH PATTOU PLEASE HURRY!! I have the first and second song of eirren, paper back and hard back so i have all the different versions. I am waiting so very desperately for the third. This is a great book with lots and lots of inspiration, trust me, i was inspired to write my first book off of this.

I have not read the first book but after reading 'Fire Arrow' I will be very exited about it. Fire Arrow is a thrilling non-stop adventure book. I could not put it down. Even though I did not read the first book, wich explaind in more detail ware collon came from,I still picked up on everything. I'll let you in on a wisper..... I did not even know that it was the second book to anything.I was very happy to find out later that my adventure would not have to end when this book did!! It is a must must must read for any one who roots for the underdog and enjoys a good story full of magic and humer. Don't get me wrong this book is not all happy. Bre- has to go through meny hardships and alot of pain to get to her goal so don't expect a fluffy duffy childrens story. In the end I wound up with a sense of pride and honor for bre- and her tale.

this is a very great book, it leads into one's feelings of hate, love and confusement. there is action at every turn and enought talk to make it exicting and understanding without the babble and boring talk. i would rate it 6 stars!! i am desperatly waiting for the third book in hopes it will be as great as the other two.
