Five stars just aren't enough for Kathy Tyers remarkable conclusion to the Firebird series It's been a long time since I read a novel that was so engrossing and so encouraging I'm not one for reading lengthy books but in this case I ploughed through the pages barely even noticing the six hundred plus pages In fact the only complaint that I have about Daystar is that it ended at all Having finished the Firebird series I can only cling to the solace that I do own all of the Firebird books and can reread them anytime Tyers's tackling of a Messianic character is amazing I have not seen this fully done except in allegory and was very excited to read this As usual Tyers offers compelling characters an interesting world and in depth interesting plotlines Again I am impressed with Tyers's bravery It was better than the previous book but the characters were still very annoying And parts of it were very hard to follow As with the previous book some editing would have gone a long ways to correct the grammatical mistakes and make it enjoyable A good read but not uite as crisp a read as the earlier novels in the series This series was intriguing and highly entertaining However the ending left me just a little dissatisfied because a couple of the story threads that I was interested in didn't go anywhere Great series sad to see it endI first read this series when I found the first book Firebird I really liked the first three books in the series; Firebird Fusion Fire and Crown of Fire So when I saw there were two new ones available I was excited to read themI was a little disappointed After Kathy Tyres' earlier books this one seemed boring for most of the book I found the character Kinnor Caldwell while supposed to be the hero very cold calculating and difficult to root for Ditto in this book but he shows some redeeming ualities at the end Again disappointing because after reading about the birth of the twins Kiel and Kinnor I was excited to read about what kind of adults they had turned intoNevertheless I'm giving this five stars because this was still a great series overall and the final book ties it all up nicely As a writer myself I realize that you can't please everyone all the time So I'm giving it five stars I recommend reading the series from the beginning it will make sense to you I have been reading Kathy's books since I discovered the Firebird series in high school To have her conclude this truly epic saga with Daystar is satisfying to say the leastIn Daystar Kathy's strengths as a writer truly shine while also venturing into speculative ground In a universe where mankind has developed space travel before the coming of the Messiah the alternate history developed by Kathy is both thought provoking and well rounded With Daystar being a ensemble cast of old characters and new this was still a well developed character story with fast paced plotting and marvelous conclusions Her depiction of an alternate Jesus timeline were both satisfying and challengingPossibly the only sour note is that this is the last book in the series and after spending years with these characters saying goodbye is bittersweetI would highly recommend the Firebird series to Kathy She doesn't disappoint even to the very end Daystar by Kathy Tyers definitely touches a spiritual cord while taking the reader on a fast paced adventure to unknown galaxies Even at a daunting 650 pages the story maintained a great pace and was engaging throughout There was enough pseudo scientific mumbo jumbo which Sci fi writers are famous for to make the story seem plausible yet not so much to overwhelm the reader Her attention to detail was amazing perhaps one reason for the length of the book and her descriptions were very visual Included in the book is a wide cast of characters that were very well developed and the story line was complex There was romance intrigue sabotage everything to make the book interesting The book is a Biblical allegory there is no doubt about that Although this was fairly obvious early on in the reading there were enough surprises and imaginative ways of presenting the analogies that it remained fresh and unpredictable I have loved the Firebird saga for many years and while I was looking forward to this final chapter in the series I was also a little bit reluctant to read it It is after all THE ENDBut I have to say since reading it that it is the most satisfying ending I could hope for and I couldn't imagine it finishing any other wayI was also delighted to read the very last line of this book bringing it full circle to the last line of Firebird #1 itself You'll know it when you see itIt's an alternate universe retelling of the journey of faith I am very familiar with the elements that were revealed and drew the parallels uite easily but even knowing how events were likely to unfold didn't stop me from feeling the emotion every step of the way I am now tempted to start from the beginning again and read it all again A fabulous end to this renowned series I was enthralled through every page and had tears in my eyes during the last Kathy Tyers has truly created a masterpiece worth re reading in the Firebird series and Daystar is a rich satisfying conclusion UPDATE Read through this a second time and it was just as great as the first If not so since I read the whole series one right after the other which helped me understand the characters so much better I found myself almost tearing up at times as it's such a beautiful picture of the hope we have in Christ
