He is also the Prince’s son, and he is awaiting the initiation which will make him a warrior. Aljan’s destiny is as his name, which means “Dark Moon,” and is tied to an ancient prophecy and an ancient evil.
Aljan’s pilgrimage ov more than a personal quest to prove his worthiness and to understand the significance of his disturbing dreams.
Firebrinter vanquishing the deadly wyvern, Aljan is able to confront his hidden past and gain insight into the eternal dance of life and death. The untangling of the satisfying plot and Pierce’s ability to foster belief in her unicorns, consistently describing the action as these horse-like animals feel and sense it, are enhanced by her stately use of language and the sense of their history and culture which she firebtinger and sustains.
The tale of a heritage realized and a prophecy fufilled is not new, but the vital characters and the unique device of a narrator whose identity remains hidden until story’s brith give it a fresh appeal.

I have loved this book firebrinfer middle school and my old copy was falling apart so I got a new one. When I was in 7th grade the school library was getting rid of old books and my friend grabbed the absolute last horse book available. I was mad but saw that this one had a unicorn on it so I grabbed it.
The book went unread for a few months but then one day I finally picked it up I ditched the horse books for the most part, I still read a few because I still loved horses and started branching out to read other types of fiction including my discovery of the Harry Potter books which was the start of what will always be quite an obsession for me. I loved the story, I loved the characters, etc. This book started my love for stories.
It’s been about 16 years now since I came across this book and I still love to read it to this day. One person found this helpful. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. Having read this when I was 11 it was a story that always stayed with me even though I had long forgotten the title.
I finally found it and am pleasantly surprised to find it was the first installment in a trilogy. It was as magical as I remembered and I am excited to read the next books in the series after all these years! I first read this book when I was 11 — I’m 39 now, and I’ve lost track of how many times I’ve re-read this great adventure! I already own two hard copies, but I had to get it for the Kindle, too! It may be unusual, having all-animal protagonists, but Pierce describes things so beautifully, I’ll bet you’ll have no problem relating to the characters and imagining life as a unicorn!
Birth of the Firebringer by Meredith Ann Pierce | : Books
Od next two books are great too, but this first one which was the only book for a long time, and stands alone fairly well will always have an extra-special place in my heart. This is a book about unicorns. Many people would simply LOL at this statement and leave. This book is a piece of brilliance, poetic brilliance, literary brilliance, mythological and dazzling brilliance.
The book is about the world of unicorns, who live in a valley called the Vale and have their own history and folklore of how they, and the neighboring creatures such as gryphons and wyvernscame to live where they do now. They have a prince named Korr, and the main character is his son, Jan, who’s wild and fun-loving to the point of being blrth dangerous.
When it’s time for girth to make his journey and rite of passage into unicorn adulthood, he discovers his true destiny and a mystery about his life he never even had guessed at before. What I love most about this book was its language, its writing. Meredith Ann Pierce takes words and phrases and weaves them together into pure beauty, like nothing I’ve ever seen.
One that struck me in particular was, ” They firebrinnger their own words like “Hist” and “list” “be quiet” and “listen”, respectively and also “hale” which firbringer essentially “Okay;” they often say “Are you hale?
The unicorns perform a lot of things on a schedule, a schedule made by their Ring, essentially the society all adult unicorns are a part of. One character says a little scathingly that unicorns cannot or dare not do anything outside of the Ring. One of the things that Jan questions and through his journey and meetings with other species, he questions a lot of what he’s been told is why the unicorns have to be a part of the Ring and follow such strict rules. And one thing he learned at the end of his journey is what fire is, because while unicorns tell of the coming of the Firebringer, and the narrator will sometimes describe things as “flitting like flame” or “fire-white” the unicorns have never seen fire and don’t know what the word means.
I’ll tell you that Jan gets to see. Birth of the Firebringer is the beginning of a beautiful, dramatic and promising legend that I want to see the arch and climax of. I ordered books two and three before I was halfway done with this one. Order it now, and be amazed. Don’t believe the upper limit on the An absolutely beautiful book.
Don’t believe the upper limit on the age requirements – this book is good for everyone. Doesn’t matter if you’re a small child or a grown adult. Indeed, it’s worth noting that small children may need help understanding some of the concepts that the series presents.
Read it with your kids if you get it for them. Slow to start, but once it gets going, you can’t put it birgh. I find some of the imagery hard to imagine, but as the story is about a bunch of unicorns, the author uses descriptions of different horse coat patterns. If I were more versed in what these patterns looked like, I’m sure the imagery would be easy enough to envision.
I still rate it at five stars because the story is phenomenal and leaves you wanting more.

I liked this book. It had a wonderfuly diverse vernacular portaying a delightfully detailed world. I read it first when I was 10 and didn’t understand any of it birhh only remembered it vaugley, but it was the book that launched me into the world of fantasy art and writing. After many years I hte found it again and it has proven to be everything I’d hoped it would be.
