Fusion Fire

Overview

Lady Firebird didn't fully understand her former enemy, the Sentinel Brennen Caldwell. That might take a lifetime. But she knew enough, loved enough, to embrace his mysteries--and his certainty--and to step out on the frightening path of pair bonding. Exiled from her royal heritage, she had escaped the terrible fate of her birth as an expendable wastling. She fought heroically to save her adopted world from destruction.

Overview

Lady Firebird didn't fully understand her former enemy, the Sentinel Brennen Caldwell. That might take a lifetime. But she knew enough, loved enough, to embrace his mysteries--and his certainty--and to step out on the frightening path of pair bonding. Exiled from her royal heritage, she had escaped the terrible fate of her birth as an expendable wastling. She fought heroically to save her adopted world from destruction. Bonded to Brennen, though, she finds herself the unexpected bearer of an ancient messianic prophecy. While her royal family seeks to seal her doom, Firebird and Brennan face two implacable enemies--one from his past and one from deep in her soul.

Editorial Reviews

VOYA
Exiled from her home planet for charges of high treason, Lady Firebird immerses herself in the world of her husband Brennan Caldwell, studying to be an initiate into the Path, the religion that guides Caldwell and his people. Caldwell is a Sentinel, a human whose ancestors were bred genetically to enhance psychic powers. The Caldwell family lineage is prophesied to bring doom to the renegade Shuhr, who share the same ancestry but refused to take the oath that binds them to use their powers only for others' safety. When Brennan's brother's family is brutally murdered, only the pregnant Firebird's sleeplessness saves her and Brennan from a similar fate, as the Shuhr seek to eradicate the Caldwells before the prophecy is fulfilled. As Firebird's sister, Phoena, aligns herself with the Shuhr, Brennan must face the Shuhr on their territory in hopes of saving not only the Federacy but also his newborn twins. Following the overtly didactic beginning, Fusion Fire heats up to rapidly paced, riveting prose, with the same stylistic resonance as its predecessor novel, Firebird (Bethany House, 1999/VOYA April 2000). This novel mirrors the dualities of human nature, hard choices, and the value of possessing an unshakable core of belief in something greater than oneself. It makes no apologies for its overt proselytizing and ultimately needs none, thanks to deft characterization, a skillful plot, and masterful storytelling.
