This novel is the third in the Fireborn Chronicles and once again we have Ira, an empath, along with Tristen, the Oracles' Chosen One, working to save a planet. They are aided by the rest of the team and along the way, they make contact with the Roma people. I was very impressed with Mary Andrews' knowledge and treatment of the Roma culture. In this setting, the Roma live in space caravans, but their traditions date back to a time before the Earth was destroyed. They are a very proud and private people who find themselves in a situation where they need to interact with the Nemesis Team. The first meeting between these two very different groups is stressful, to say the least, but they eventually find that they have enough in common to work together to try to save the unknown planet from destruction.
The story line in this novel is intricate and the action moves at a very fast pace. I really enjoyed a number of the characters, and I was intrigued with the Roma's question, "What if the Earth itself is actually an accumulation of intelligence from the time of its conception. What if we, like skin cells, are an integral but non-connected part of something much, much larger." The idea of connectivity plays a large role in this novel, and it was amazing to see how Andrews weaves the various pieces of the story into a complete and well-structured whole.
Readers of fantasy are sure to enjoy Revelations. I would encourage those who are interested to begin with the first volume in the series, Fireborn Found, followed by Resonances, and then Revelations for the deepest enjoyment of this amazing world. Each of the three novels does stand alone and each one has its own complete and distinct plot. But Andrews has done a fabulous job with the development of her characters, so I believe that reading the three novels in order provides the richest experience.

I was NOT disappointed in the journey taken by Rael and his crew aboard his ship Nemesis, but as I neared the conclusion of Book Two I began a slow but ever growing wail. Book THREE...oh please, I lamented, is it out? It HAS to be. I cannot sit here on the sidelines wringing my hands waiting and waiting until some magical date in the future springs across the cyber world and my e-reader gets lucky.
Book Three The Fireborn Chronicles: Revelations released from Ms. Andrew's Publisher, Muse It Up Publishing on July 27, 2012 so I was on a roll.
I have to admit I spent some time looking at the cover for book three trying to figure out who the cover image represents. I concluded, it must be Ira Haze, the head Psi guy sent in book two to Future Earth to save it from the same destiny of Ancient Earth in another dimension by Rael, the Overlord of well...everything.
I don't DO spoilers, so I'm not going to tell you what Ira and his group must save the future Earth (our earth?) from, but I will tell you I rode right along with Ira, his blind but brilliant wife Tristen, The Light and Dark Lords, Nevon and Deshon, Rael, the Overlord, his gorgeous Archangels, and Laynald, his combination healer-assassin, as they work together to bring a future to earth (ours?).
Based on the ending I HOPE there's going to be a Book Four, because now I am sitting here wailing at the top of my lungs, wringing my hands, waiting for the next installment in this ongoing Psionic Sci-Fi adventure brilliantly crafted by Mary Andrews.
So once more I quite happily award Ms. Andrew's brilliance with The Fireborn Chronicles: REVELATIONS
And say....PLEASE keep 'em coming.
Ira Haze takes the lead in preventing Earth's destruction, or re-destruction, as it may be. But every day drains him, and the dreaded hour looms closer by the minute. He must choose between untenable alternatives.
Rael Pointe and the others play their parts in the race to save Earth. And Deshon, a "psychic vampire," sees redemption in the face of a little girl.
This third book in the "Fireborn Chronicles" examines loss and return, sacrifice and healing.
Mary Andrews' characters are flawed, but not in the sense that she has miscast them. They are imperfect beings getting the job done, plugging on despite the obstacles and the cost, and it takes the efforts of each to make things whole.
The author gives us a satisfying ending, but leaves us with the hope of more adventure. I anticipate the return to her universe.
