Infused with folklore magic and history, The Firebird’s Vengeance is the stunning conclusion to the Isavalta trilogy.
You will pay for this, screamed the Firebird. Life and blood and realm I will have from you.
Thirty years ago the Empress of Isavalta imprisoned the terrible Firebird in a cage wrought with gold, magic and blood. She succeeded in saving her realm, but at a harsh price: the life of her loyal sorcerer, Avanasy.
Now, with the Empress’s death, the Firebird has been freed, and its desire for revenge is unquenchable. Avanasy's daughter, Bridget, is warned by the Vixen, a great spirit-power, of the Firebird ‘s coming attack. But the Vixen also brings other, equally disturbing news: that Anna, the daughter Bridget buried as an infant nine years ago, is in fact still alive.
Bridget is torn between her duty to defend her adopted homeland and her desperate longing to find her child. But she is not the only one with an interest in the girl. Bridget is the daughter of two sorcerers, as is Anna herself. Such a child is likely to be possessed of extraordinary powers. Powers that might be harnessed to save an empire – or to destroy one.

Praise for the Isavalta novels of Sarah Zettel
"Zettel has the many strands of her complex story well in hand as she weaves her storyteller's magic."
"A Sorcerer's Treason is a sumptuous tale of subtle magic, malevolent sorcery, and twisted loyalties where nothing is as it first appears---I can guarantee you won't regret venturing into Sarah Zettel's world."
--Sara Douglass, author of The Wayfarer Redemption
"Romance readers should welcome this one as eagerly as fantasy fans."
--Publishers Weekly on The Usurper's Crown
"A Sorcerer's Treason is a gem of a book, artfully blending the windswept magic of late nineteenth-century Lake Superior with that of the mystical realm of Isavalta. Sarah Zettel's vision of both places is keen, her world-building refreshing and original, her plot unpredictable, and her characters multi-dimensional. The journeys across time, layers of court intrigue, haunting magic, and crisp depiction of setting make for an extremely enjoyable read."
--Elizabeth Haydon, author of Rhapsody
"This sweet-tempered melodrama will appeal mainly to younger female fantasy fans, who will be sure to welcome the forthcoming sequel."
--Publishers Weekly on A Sorcerer's Treason
"Complicated court intrigue is brought alive in a setting, enriched by research in Russian folklore and magiclore, for a very cleverly woven fantasy. A good read indeed."
Sarah Zettel was born in California in 1966. Since then, she's lived in ten cities, four states and two countries. She has written several science fiction novels and many short stories in the sf, fantasy and horror genres. She currently lives in Michigan with her husband and their son.
