The Annotated Firebird

In a single volume with newly created maps and annotations, here are the first three volumes of the beloved Firebird space-opera series.
· April 2011 · for ,

In a war she doesn’t believe in, she must forge a bold new destiny.

Firebird: Lady Firebird Angelo departs her home world expecting death in space combat. Captured instead, she finds a startling destiny among an ancient telepathic family-and a new kind of battle against implacable enemies.

Fusion Fire: Firebird discovers both evil and uncontrollable power at the depths of her own spirit, and when her sister commits unspeakable treachery, she must draw on that power to save the man she loves from certain death.

Crown of Fire: Firebird returns to her home world, where some consider her a hero-but those in power have labeled her a traitor. Facing death once again, she discovers the cost of pride and the true meaning of sacrifice.

In a single volume with newly created maps and annotations, here are the first three volumes of the beloved Firebird space-opera series, freshly edited for Marcher Lord Press by bestselling author Kathy Tyers.

  1. I first read Kathy Tyers via the Star Wars Universe. Imagine my surprise when I found out she wrote Christian science fiction :). Great trilogy and reminiscent of the old, but good first Star Wars novels.

  2. This new review (by Timothy Stone, above) reminds me that I need to purchase the final volume of the series, Daystar. I’ve also recently read the second-to-last volume, book 4, Wind and Shadow, written after Tyers’ hiatus.

  3. Krysti says:

    I’ve read at least the first two books; and maybe parts of the third somewhere– not sure! As you said, they’re very well done! I hope to read the rest of this series some time.

  4. I’m in the midst of the third book right now – I think I might add a review of my own when I’m done with the threesome!  🙂  I am loving them…

  5. Joanna W says:

    I have to say I’m a little surprised he found them so violent, because if anything, after going back and reading her original books a couple years ago, I was surprised at how much she’d toned it down. That being said, it could be that for someone who’d experienced that kind of thing in person, it would be amplified.
    I read them when I was like 11 or 12, and became instantly obsessed with them — displacing the Chronicles of Narnia. They still hold a special place in my heart that no other books I read now will quite reach.

  6. Timothy Stone says:

    I appreciate the comments all. Joanna, Ma’am, it is mainly that I saw women and children hurt in Iraq, and it seemed that the enemy (and too many of my brothers and sisters over there) enjoyed hurting and fighting and killing. Enjoyment of violence, and harming women and children are two of my major berserk buttons. I also had a brother who was disabled so the Shuhr’s attitudes disturbed me, perhaps because I saw Chris treated as less than a person. I just tend to get overwhelmed too if I see too much violence and women/children suffering. I haven’t read the secular versions, was it really a lot more violent? Have you read CS Lewis’ Cosmic Trilogy?
    Morgan, I loved Kathy Tyers’ Star WArs novels, but that is when Star WArs was good to read. I have hated the novels since Del Rey got the license back 12 years ago.

  7. […] The Annotated Firebird (Firebird, Fusion Fire, and Crown of Fire), Wind and Shadow, and Daystar are now available from Marcher Lord Press. So is an inexpensive, limited-time offering of the first book in the five-book series, Firebird: Book One of the Annotated Trilogy, for Nook or Kindle. Daystar or Wind and Shadow can be read on their own, since they focus on new characters in new generations.
