Great Book to Read With Older Children!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Fire Bringer (HB) (Hardcover)
I read this book to my 11 year old son, a chapter each night. We could hardly wait to get to our reading! It is fantasy with values; good vs. evil, where good triumps; and intrigue and mystery along the way. It does not spare you the view of death, but there is a promise of more to come. I think it should have been called "The Prophesy" because the whole story, in which the deer ("Herla") take center stage and can talk and think, revolves around the Prophesy of the one who will come and set the Herla free from bondage and tyranny. It is also the story of friendship,and of sacrificing for others. I could not escape the clear Biblical analogy at times to Jesus in the main character, Rannoch. We loved this book!
