Introduction

New York Times Bestseller

Two Women.
One Mysterious Relic.
Separated By Centuries.

Nicola Marter was born with a gift so rare and dangerous, she kept it buried deep. When she encounters a desperate woman trying to sell a small wooden carving called "The Firebird," claiming it belonged to Russia's Empress Catherine, it's a problem. There's no proof.

But Nicola's held the object. She knows the woman is telling the truth.

Beloved by readers as varied and adventurous as her novels, you will never forget spending time in New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Susanna Kearsley's world.

I have read several books by Susanna Kearsley (The Winter Sea is my favorite), and she never fails to include so much rich history in her stories. Some aspects of the story were a bit far fetched (reading... (read more)

If you have read The Winter Sea, then you will love The Firebird...the story of Anna, interwove with a modern story including characters from The Shadowy Horses.
