This book was very captivating and interesting. The characters were likeable, the villain was awesome and the world was vivid. I totally recommend reading.

This is the only book I have ever read more than once, and both times it made me cry. Fire Bringer is brilliantly written, for Rannoch is a completely believable character, and his tale is both epic and inspiring!

A hidden treasure. This book is an odd combination of the Bambi and Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer stories (orphaned fawn who has to disguise himself by covering a fawn mark on his face), but also has all the elements of an epic hero tale, with deer lore, old gods, a tyrant in charge of the herd, an ancient prophecy to foretell the coming of the saviour of the herd. A really great read!

And watch for the Santa Claus story told from the deer's perspective

I absolutely LOVED this book. It is a great plot and it brings an insight of the life of a deer. Great book with amazing characters. I would definitely recommend this book!

I really liked this book. You really got to know the characters and their was intense, fiery relationships between them that brought the story to its climax. The only negative thing was that it dragged on a little long in the end, but it was still definitely worth reading.

A great book, one of my favorites.
Even though it seems real when you read
it, and the events seem quite possible, don't
forget they're just deer.
