Forced to forsake her royal heritage, Lady Firebird must stand with her new love or be consumed by deadly enemies.

The Chronicle of One Woman's Fight to Save a World in Peril

 

The quintessential science fiction of Kathy Tyers' Firebird generated rave reviews from readers like you. Now you will be thrilled to join the continuation of the story with Fusion Fire, the sequel to Firebird. Journey across the stars once more to a realm of startling cultures and amazing technology. At the heart of Fusion Fire is an examination of faith, courage, and love that is both meaningful and important for your world today.

Returning again to the journey of Lady Firebird, Fusion Fire chronicles this extraordinary woman's life and the worlds she sought to save. Forced to forsake her royal heritage, Firebird is now married and carrying twins of her new husband, Brennan Caldwell. He is now the sole heir to ancient messianic prophecies that Firebird cannot learn about until she is consecrated into her new community.

Before that can happen, though, danger erupts both at home and across the galaxy. First, she and her newborn sons are attacked by the same enemies who have sought to destroy her husband's family. At the same time, she learns that her sister has been taken prisoner on a distant planet. The woman's husband travels light-years to enlist Brennan's help in rescuing her. Could this be part of the ancient prophecies? Will Firebird live long enough to learn the wonderful secrets of her husband's past?

Fusion Fire is science fiction the way it is supposed to be written.

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.
