The first time I read work from this author was with The Sight, and I absolutely fell in love with the story. Then, I heard from one of my friends about this book, and -- to be honest -- I was skeptical about reading a book about deer. However, after a chapter or two of semi-boring reading, I got pretty much addicted to the story. By the time I was done reading the book, I was convinced that this was one of my favorites.

Just like the story of Watership Down, Firebringer takes the reader into the world of animals and the society they live in. The story is of a young deer Rannoch, born on the very night his father is murdered. Throughout the ages, the Herla (deer) have foretold a legend where a deer with a birthmark shaped like an oak leaf will free the Herla from their oppresser-Rannoch is that deer. Follow him on his journey from the Low Lands to the High Hills to escape those that would destroy him, to the sea, the mountains and even to come face to face with the dreaded animal called man. This book; like watership down, explains of the deer having their own idea of God and their own language like Herla is the term for deer and Larn id nightfall. I highly recommend this book for anyone who like animals and nature or simply wannts a book about our world and that maybe we are not the only intelligent creatures on this planet. A great read that I couldn't put down.

Fire Bringer is and always will be on my short list of 'favorites'. It's brilliant from start to finish. David creates a world that's simply stunning in its own right. This book was wonderful and the characters were ones I fell in love with and still hold close to my heart. It's the type of book that, if you rented it from the library, you'll want to buy simply to have it. David is a brilliant author and deserves the high acclaim that he gets. *claps*

I found this book pleasant to read. It is an easy read, I recommend it for teens and up. Very interesting, imaginative and descriptive. Kept me busy for a few nights. Good read for the price. If you like reading fantasy stories that mainly involve animals in a somewhat nature like setting then this is a book for you. It's basically about the lives of deer, in a fantasy way of course. It also has a few historical references, which tie everything together. Good, easy read.

This book has captured my interest many times. I have re-read this book at least ten times and it continues to captivate my interest. It is a great book for anyone who enjoys action, suspense, and a prophecy. All in all its is one of my favorite books and I would recommend it to everyone.

What Watership Down was for rabbits, Clement-Davies has done for European red deer in this story of prophecy fulfilled and a dystopic society that must be overcome. Richard Adams meets George Orwell's Animal Farm, with deer.

I really did enjoy this book, however, my enjoyment was marred by cliches. Themes and several scenes seemed to be directly lifted, the only change being what kind of animal was featured in the story.

Couldn't put down the book! David Clement-Davies never disappoints; his stories of the wild are absolutely fantastic! The depth within his legends and character, the detail he puts into the plot line. . .I am speechless!

David Clement-Davies' writing is some of the best writing I have ever read; obviously if you don't like the whole "animals that talk! and do human-ish things!" bit, you're not going to like Fire Bringer. But if you like it - or, hell, if you think you can deal with it for the sake of a good book - read Fire Bringer. There's a reason this book sits on my favorites shelf. Let's just start with the world Davies has created; it's so brilliant, so intricate, so well thought out that I can't help but be in awe. Every type of animal that Rannoch comes across has it's own well thought out culture. Even the deer aren't all lumped into one category; each type of dear has it's own way it functions, it's own belief systems. Though they think like humans, they each keep to their original animal core. And the characters! Oh, the characters! Even the smallest characters in the story are developed to have a full personality and not just appear on the page. They're all brilliantly written. I even love the villains; Sgorr is one of the most evil little things I've ever come across, but I still love him because he's so brilliantly put together. And Rannoch! He may make me headdesk sometimes, but I love him. And Willow and Peppa and Bankfoot and - but I'm getting on a rant now. The plot, though, may be my favorite bit about this story. There are so many little things going on that you don't pick up on until you get to the end of the story. And the overall plot is enthralling and interesting and just-

I read this in middle school, and rediscovered it 15 years later in graduate school. It's a great for anyone who loves a fantasy novel and doesn't mind reading from a non-human perspective. I'd recommend it for any age group to read, it's a wonderful story, easy read, and shouldn't be a struggle to enjoy for younger readers.
