GREAT READS HANDPICKED BY GREAT SOUTHERN BOOKSELLERS...

Echo lives with the Avicen, a magical people with feathers for hair.

They are more her people than the human family she ran away from as a child. Sent on a quest to find the Firebird, a mythical object said to posses the power to end an ancient war, Echo meets the Dragon Prince, leader of the Drakharin, mortal enemies to the Avicen.

With her ragtag group of Avicen and Drakharin, Echo follows the trail to the Firebird, intent on doing what she can to earn her place. But first she has to figure out where it is she belongs.

Awesome world-building and character development make this a great choice for fans of Laini Taylor's Daughter of Smoke and Bone.

I can't wait for the sequel!
