FirebirdD herself who is actually an enchanted maiden who has been waiting for true love to break the spell that holds her captive I wanted to like this book and parts of it were great but about halfway through I realized that I just really didn't like the main character He prided himself on being smarter than the rest of his family but he couldn't seem to outsmart them He was highly unimaginative in his solutions to problems and spent a good bit of the first half of the book recovering from the poundings he received from his brothers I didn't like the resolution to the final problem It just seemed too easy All in all it wasn't the best

Tastical version of Old Russia solving magical mazes and befriending a talking fox before falling in love with the Firebir It took me a couple of tries to get through The Firebird I usually don't keep trying but I really enjoy Lackey's Thousand Kingdom books and the Firebird is a favorite fairy tale and another retelling In the Forests of Serre is one of my all time favorite books The beginning is sluggish and it takes a while to get into the meat of the story Also I felt Lackey missed in her attempt to create a loveable rogue although the characterization itself is well drawn and the background history is logical and even poignant If you are expecting the fun romantic romps of the Thousand Kingdom series you won't find it here As books go it's okay at least for me I could easily see another reader picking this up and it becoming a favorite but it just didn't work for me
