The Final Volume of the Firebringer Trilogy

A secret haunts Jan's dying father, Korr—a secret so dark that, if exposed, could bring the downfall of the Firebringer. Jan is left with its terrible burden, and an impossible choice—renounce Tek, his beloved mate, and lose forever the kingship of the unicorns, or return and face the consequences of his father's acts, and of his own.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 9 Up?Jan, prince of the unicorns, returns in this thrilling conclusion to the "Firebringer" trilogy (Little) to confront the truth about his identity and lead his people back to their ancestral homeland. Jan's twin children, gifted with prophecy, show him how to render the unicorns immune to the poison of wyverns, the white serpents who drove them from the Hallow Hills four centuries ago. This is the sign Jan has awaited; it is time for the unicorns to attempt a return. But first, he must track down his mad sire, king-turned-renegade Korr, who reveals that the rightful unicorn leader should be Jan's mate, the female warrior Tek. Shocked by Korr's disclosure and its implications for his personal happiness, Jan wanders through the wilderness, discovering unlooked-for allies. Meanwhile, Tek marshals their tribe for its journey to the Hallow Hills, where a final battle takes place and all the unicorn prophecies regarding the Firebringer ultimately come true. Filled with action and drama, this is a deeply satisfying adventure that succeeds in uniting the various subplots of the trilogy's earlier installments into a smoothly connected whole. Jan, once an impetuous youngster, has matured into a wise, brave hero; Tek proves herself once again to be a fitting mate and leader in her own right. Other characters, both new and old, masterfully assist in moving the plot along. Readers of the earlier novels and fantasy addicts will be delighted with this compelling tale.?Mary Jo Drungil, Niles Public Library District, IL
