I was introduced to Meredith Ann Pierce's books with her Angel trilogy. Gathering of Gargoyles being one of my favorites. I wish her works could all be in nook form. She has beautiful writing and her books have introduced me to new words to add to my vocabulary. The Birth of the Firebringer is nicely told. I would have liked it to be longer but the text painting is wonderful. It isn't the usual story told from a 'human perspective' but it follows a vivid adventure.

This was an awesome book! It was very fast paste and a deep read. I like to get lost in my books and this one had me in a dark forest at night (weird analogy I know).

I love fantasy and this book was perfect for me. I couldn't put it down it kept me on the edge of my seat. The writing is so well writing that I felt like I was right there with Jan.

I first read this book back in sixth grade, and having re-read it as an adult, the story has stood the test of time. What sets this book apart from other unicorn stories is the distinct absence of any human characters. The unicorns themselves behave more like intelligent animals rather than human beings, utilizing believable gestures, behaviors, and so on. I also found the lack of magic on the part of the unicorns to be refreshing (although fire holds it's own "magic" for the unicorns, in the same way fire is seen as mysterious and magical to the animals in The Jungle Book). While the plot may be a bit predictable to older readers, I was completely surprised by the "big reveal" at the end of the book when I first read it as a child. All in all, it's a beautiful coming of age story about finding one's place and learning how best to use one's talents. In fact, I'd go so far as to compare it to a modern retelling of ancient trickster tales and myths. All in all, I highly recommend this book to anyone who appreciates a mythopoetic approach to their fantasy, and who is looking for something a little different from the typical unicorn story.

Good book overall. It had an unusual narrative voice and perspective in which the narrator speaks. A very shadowing book with pretty much everything predictable.

I reccomend this book to everyone who enjoys all types of fantasy novels. Jan is a spirited and 'hot-headed' unicorn. He makes you wish you knew him. I hope everyone gets a chance to read this inspiring story.

If you didn't have the chance to get it hardback when it first came out now is your chance! This trilogy is awsome!!! I own the first book and I have read it over and over and over! Jan's story touches your heart and makes you wish for more. I recomend it to any unicorn fan out there!
