Excerpt provided by Syndetics

From Fire World The firebird responded by leaving the shelves and hovering in the air in front of David. His ear tufts were up and glowing scarlet. The frills around his neck were like spikes of steel. There was anger anger and passion in his gaze, a look that said trespassers were not welcom. David took a deep breath. He had nothing but his honesty with which to shield himself now. He stepped forward, out of the shadows. He braced himself for a burst of fire, but it did not happen. A subtle change occurred in the firebird's expression. It tipped its beak forward and brought its eyes more central to its head. Those eyes grew very round indeed and blinked several times before settling to a stare. Whatever mechanism governed the way they took in light extended to its maximum, making the eyeballs shine like mirrors--until David could see himself reflected in them, playing back like a pin-size movie.

Horn Book Review

Picking up the series' story in a parallel universe, this book gives familiar characters altered lives. On "Co:per:nica," David Merriman's immense powers stir trouble between the worlds, and the fearsome Ix have slipped through from Earth. Firebirds--not dragons--play a central role (to the dismay of dragon fans), but there's ample action and revelation in this briskly paced fantasy. (c) Copyright 2011.
