    I'm an extreme latecomer to the Firebird universe, having only just read the trilogy this summer. I found Kathy Tyers's Star Wars books to be some of the diamonds of that particular coalmine, though, so I was curious what her books outside the Star Wars universe would be like. Derivative? Less encompassing? Less fun?

    And to be honest, there are some similarities between the two. Unique cultures. Political intrigue. Spiritual warriors that to do superhuman things. But much of the intersection is in good areas. A master storyteller is able to sift out what works in other stories and make it wholly their own. (George Lucas didn't write in a vacuum either. Tyers and Lucas both took from the same pool of tropes that all sci-fi writers swim in.)

    It is the unique area of the Firebird trilogy where it really shines, though. The cultures are believable—rivaling the best of Frank Herbert. The spiritual struggles are nuanced, captivating. The origin and uses of psi-powers are exhaustively detailed. The characters have depth and history. (The villains are especially well-crafted. Phoena made me grit my teeth nearly every time she was presented.) Clearly the author has put a lot of thought into her work. As a reader, I appreciate that. As a writer, I applaud it.

    I understand what some have said about the footnotes of this version. There were times I wished I could have toggled them off. I didn't want to be distracted from the story_yet I knew I would be because the notes were interesting too. Overall, though, I'm glad the footnotes were available. I learned from them.

    The Firebird Trilogy is a timeless sci-fi epic. I recommend it!
