9780142500576: Dark Moon (Firebringer Trilogy (Paperback))

Volume Two of the Firebringer Trilogy

He was the youngest prince the unicorns had ever known: Aljan son-of-Korr, Dark Moon. A silver crescent on his brow and a white star on his heel were tokens that one day he was destined to become the legendary Firebringer—but Jan had no knowledge of fire, nor of where to find it.
 
Swept out to sea while defending the unicorns, Jan is washed up on a distant shore, only to find himself the revered captive of a strange race of two-foots who treat him with awe, even as they hold him against his will. It is here that he witnesses the magic of fire for the first time and, even more importantly, discovers how he himself can create it. But can he escape and bring the knowledge back to the unicorns in time to same them?
“Carefully plotted, with satisfying action and fully developed, intriguing characters, this is sure to please fantasy lovers.”—Booklist

From School Library Journal:

Grade 6-9-- In this sequel to Birth of the Firebringer (Four Winds, 1985; o.p.), Pierce takes readers back to the world of the prince of the unicorns, Jan. When he chooses Tek as his mate, there is an unprecedented attack by harpies, in which Jan is lost and believed dead. His father, mad with grief, starts to domineer over the other unicorns, forming his own guard to punish unapproved behavior. Meanwhile , Tek is in foal and is trying to escape to her mother to bear her foal in safety. Meanwhile , Jan is actually alive and has been taken by humans to their city where he is treated like a prize stallion (complete with a mare harem) and deprived of his freedom. He escapes with one of the mares, overthrowing the totalitarian religious order in the town, and is helped by sea unicorns to return to his homeland. There, he solves all the problems of the herd, finds out that Tek has borne twins, and starts making alliances with every other species with whom the unicorns have been at war in the last 200 years--except the wyverns, who (one assumes) will be taken care of in the next book. This plot has everything in it but the kitchen sink, but Pierce just doesn't pull it off successfully. The old-fashioned words and turns of phrase that lent such charm to Firebringer are here poured on by the bucketful, and slow the novel down. The story is predictable, and the characters are one dimensional. Readers who loved the previous book will want to read it, but it does not stand alone. --JoAnn Rees, Sunnyvale Public Library, CA
