Overview

The desolate world Mikuhr is home to a once-proud people now on the verge of extinction. Conflict explodes when apprentice priest Kiel Caldwell arrives to investigate rumors of new spiritual revelation, but he is kidnapped by a demon possessed telepath who thinks he might be a predicted messiah. And when Kiel's loose-cannon military brother Kinnor arrives to investigate, a local leader with revenge on her mind threatens to bring down ruin on them all.

It's up to returning Mikuhran diplomat Wind Haworth to head off a conflict that could have spiritual, political and military consequences--but no one foresees the consequences of introducing the Mikuhran Wind Haworth to Federate military Sentinel Kinnor Caldwell.

Editorial Reviews

Endorsement - Ronie Kendig
Kathy Tyers’s storyworld is as deep as her characters are complex! Wind
and Shadow is a wonderful addition to the Firebird chronicles. The
exploration of our own souls, yearning for power and for the ache
placed deep within us for the Eternal is echoed through beautiful and
profound imagery, through subtle and shockingly obvious symbolism...
Another absolutely breathtaking masterpiece
from my literary hero, Kathy Tyers!"
Endorsement - Hannah Alexander
“I love everything Kathy Tyers writes, and her writing has grown more
appealing over the years. Not only does she dig deeply into her imaginary
world, showing great spiritual analogies, but she does so in a way
that carries the reader through the introduction and into the meat of
the story quickly, without confusion. That’s a difficult thing for a science
fiction writer to do, and she always does so with great precision,
never losing my interest..."
Endorsement - Kerry Nietz
“Wind and Shadow is a masterful addition to the Firebird universe. It
builds on themes and concepts introduced in the earlier novels, expanding
them in wonderfully creative ways. Here we get to see the twins,
Kinnor and Kiel, full-grown and struggling with adulthood. . .
Once started, there is little slowing down until the end. Wind
and Shadow reads like a rocket. I highly recommend it to fans and
newcomers alike.”
Endorsement - Sharon Hinck
“Wind and Shadow transports readers into the same vibrant story
world that Tyers created for her popular ‘Firebird’ trilogy. Once again
she blends high stakes adventure and heroic sacrifice with a seamless
science fiction setting. Her rich characters capture our hearts as they
grapple with faith questions along with dire dangers. Suspenseful and
thought-provoking.”
Endorsement - Kathleen Morgan
“Wow! What a ride! Wind and Shadow, Book 4 in Kathy Tyers’s
‘Firebird’ series, grabs you by the throat and doesn’t let go until the
very last page. A continuation of the complex and highly imaginative
world of the Interstellar Federacy and the evil, renegade Shuhr, Wind
and Shadow is a seamless transition from the lives and adventures of
Firebird Angelo and Brennen Caldwell to those of their children..."
