Publisher's Summary

Nicola Marter was born with a gift. When she touches an object, she sometimes glimpses those who have owned it before. When a woman arrives with a small wooden carving at the gallery Nicola works at, she can see the object’s history and knows that it was named after the Firebird - the mythical creature from an old Russian fable.

Compelled to know more, Nicola follows a young girl named Anna who leads her into the past on a quest through the glittering backdrops of the Jacobites and Russian courts, unearthing a tale of love, courage, and redemption.

    Story
    "History and romance"
    What did you love best about The Firebird?

    I enjoyed the development of characters in both the present and in the past and how she successfully interwove the two romances while including some history.


    What other book might you compare The Firebird to and why?

    I liked the Outlander series for the same reason I liked this book.


    Which character – as performed by Katherine Kellgren – was your favorite?

    Anna


    If you could take any character from The Firebird out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Edmond because he was daring and willing to let others think poorly of him to do what was right.

    "Delightful"

    Great story, I enjoyed it even more than The Winter Sea, story wise. Narrator was good, occasionally grating, but not once you get into the plot. Really neat to find out what happens to Anna!

    Story
    "From Russia with Love"

    I loved this wonderful story. It was more than I expected it to be. Not only did the writer, Susanna Krarsley draw you in, but the narration by Katherine Kellgen brought the book to life. I could see the characters from the novel standing in front of me almost tangible.

    "Exciting and romantic"

    Loved the book and the reader. This has something for the historical fiction lover, the modern fantasy novel fan, and the romantic. Great plot that keeps you guessing. Characters that are engaging and likeable. Just enough Jacobean truth to make it seem plausible. Imperial Russia is a wonderful backdrop for romance and intrigue!

    "Excellent"

    the narrator did a fantastic job of distinguishing the characters voices including accents. I had a hard time believing this was not a cast narration. The story and the story within the story kept my interest from beginning to end. Well done

    "Good Morning Commute Book"

    As a piece of literature, I was a bit annoyed in the ESP/future part of the book.. but, it was performed beautifully, the characters are likable, and it was fun to listen to.

    "Didn't want it to end"

    I couldn't 'put it down'. The narrator was the best I have experienced. The author skillfuly wove 3 stories into one book, although one could pick it apart into more. The ending was better than hoped for - but I want MORE.
