Publisher's Summary

When her most closely guarded secrets are laid bare, how will Kira survive the inevitable fall out - and will anybody be standing beside her in the end?

Traveling to the planet of Jettie in the hopes of finding safe harbor for her niece, Kira arrives only to find their destination host to the quorum - a series of dangerous contests that hold the power to decide the fate of empires.

With little choice but to participate, it doesn't take long for Kira to find herself knee deep in enemies. Surrounded on all sides, Kira will have to face her worst fear: trusting others with the truth.

Because it's becoming clear the tsavitee are no longer content to exist in the shadows. War is coming - and everything Kira thought she once knew is about to change.

Fantastic!!

I don't know how the author does it, but this series just gets better and better with each book. I stayed up way too late finishing this up because I just couldn't put the book down. I just love it when a book grabs you right at the beginning and you can just sink down into the story as if you are right there.

There is just so much of what I love in this series. The heroine is like an underdog. She is highly underestimated and I get such a kick out of everyone's reactions when she does the unexpected. I also love that she is so casual about all the things she can do. The way she reacts to those trying to push her buttons or even the ones who see her as hero. I love her fierce protectiveness and loyalty to those she sees fit to give to. Her and Jin are just very entertaining to read about.

Graydon. One of my favorite heroes to date. He's got all the markings for a great hero. He's very powerful. He's intense. He's well respected. He's also just as loyal and fierce in his protection as Kira is. I also really love how he is pursuing Kira. This is a very slow burn but it definitely is not lacking in Romance. You can just feel the pull between these two.

I'm also enjoying the heck outta all the side characters. There are many of them and they all play a big part in this series and what they could mean to Kira. There is still many things to discover in this series. I find that I really like how the author navigates telling her story. I honestly just can't wait for more. I imagine when the final book comes out, I will be very sad to say goodbye to all these characters.

Very satisfying

The 2nd book left me feeling annoyed at the characters and romantic tropes. The action sequences felt gratuitous and too long in the last one. This felt more balanced. The action moved the plot along. Kira is no longer a child with an creepy old man after her. The work building and back stories also starting to pay off. I’m looking forward to the next one.

I enjoy this series and this author tremendously.

The story line is good but it is the character development I enjoy the most. Kira, Jin, Raider, Rogan, Wren....
I want them all to have a happy ending. I've listened to this book and the others in the series multiple times.

Narrator is still shit.

"Man I wish the narrator was different. The over explination of everything in the book was tedious. There was so much random thought in-between actions that should take only few seconds, where the author decided to explain these actions, why, when, how. It was jaw breaking boring. "

I was SO very ready to wrap this up.

The first two stories were intriguing enough to put up with the narrator for what I thought was the grand finale. If there is another book in the series, I won't bother to give it a second glance. Also, why didn't the cover illustration correctly depict the main character?

I hate this narrator

This narrator is awful, the intonation doesn’t fit the characters or the situations, and the male voices are very hard to tell apart. This narrator also has a slight lisp, making some consonants difficult to make out, a very poor choice for the hard of hearing. Love TA White, but please choose someone else for the next book.

A hole on my heart where this story ends.....

I need more! This is one of the best stories of loneliness, mystery, self finding, and love of family that I have read in a long time. It's rare to see such great character and plot development with a totally new world.. The world the author created was so detailed and complete leaving no questions of the mood and depth of the characters, including the animals mentioned. Although a brief verbal dictionary was included at the end of one story, it wasn't needed. The emotions portrayed when characters used made up words made their meanings completely apparent.

I cannot wait for more......

too much tangent.

I love the author and I love this series but I was a little annoyed most of the book. I felt like the author over explain everything and didn't trust the reader to use their imagination. I felt like the detail would be in the middle of a action and I would be side track, then was confuse of what was happening. But I love where this story is headed

just gets better as you go

In General: TA White is an exceptional writer. I have to admit, it took me a while to give her books a go, but I am happy I did. The books have just the right amount of suspense, intrigue, and action that the plot moves along at a great pace and never feels like it's taking too long to progress.

To say I am a fan is an understatement! Nothing beats a strong and smart lead paired with a wonderful mix of dynamic and colorful secondary characters. To top it off, Natasha Soudek brings the characters to life. The differing voice fluctuations and tone given to the many inhabitants of the world enriches the listening experience.

The Firebird series is 1 of 3 available from this author, but I am hoping all her books will become available in the future.

About book 3: this is by far my favorite of the series. 1) Kira and Graden finally connect and the proof of their trust in one another manifests in a way that even Kira can't deny it inspite of her paranoia of everyone, 2) the epic telling of the qualifying wave runner race gives me all the adrenaline feels from a readers' perspective, and 3) in the first book, Kira's interaction is very stunted; only Jin is privy to her truest self. in the 2nd, Graden and Raider, slowly inch their way in to Kira's inner orbit and even though Kira is slowly opening up to the Tuann, she's still so guarded. In the third book, you finally get to see just how multi-faceted Kira is as she interacts with friend, family, and foes.

I can't wait for book 4 now that the Tsavitee have struck out against the primary races and have made their presence known.
