Science Fiction at it's most enjoyable Jan. 28 2001
By LadyArwyn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I'm not certain why this series has been placed in the romance section, there really isn't any romance involved, it should be placed in the sci-fi section!

Firedancer is the story of a young girl who has lost her planet and people in the supernova of her system's sun. As far as she knows, only she and her Bre'n (her partner-protector-symbiote, not reproductively compatible) have escaped. As she seeks other of her kind who might have been off-planet for the disaster, she runs into more trouble than she expected...

great pulp sci-fi adventure Oct. 10 2005
By cadence - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
I read the unfinished Dancer series (Fire Dancer, Dancer's Luck and Dancer's Illusion) as a kid and I wanted to re-read the books as an adult. I bought a used book online and it's even better than I remembered.

It's very much a pulp sci-fi (almost fantasy) adventure series. This book is in the romance section because of her other books, but this truly is an action adventure story not a romance.

Ann Maxwell does a great job at writing compelling characters. The fire dancer Rheba is exotic and exciting. Her mentor Kirtn, the furry Bre'n, is an interesting and unexpected counterpoint. Additional side characters are so interesting that I wish she had written whole books about them such as the mercenary fighters on planet Loo. When I read the book as a kid, I didn't care for the young boy (I don't want to give too much away so I'll stop there), but now I have more empathy for his character. Maxwell is just extremely creative.

Another strength to her writing is that she keeps the plot moving fast. Every chapter ends with a cliffhanger or some other twist on the story. This book is an easy, fun read with some sparkling creativity.

On the downside, the main characters get a little too lucky a little too often toward the end.... there are some gaps in believability that allow the plot to keep moving at a lightning pace. However, the book is so enjoyable that my only real complaint is that I wish she had written more books!

fabulously original July 22 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I have read many of Lowell's books, this was the first of her sci fi, though. The character's are so complex and well drawn, a great story. My only warning is that this is the first novel in an unfinished series. But it is GREAT! I absolutely loved it. The relationship between the main characters is just wonderful.

A sensual and dramatic view of fantasy July 21 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Escaping from a destroyed world, Reba, one of the fabled Fire Dancers, and Kirt'n look for any other survivors from their planet. Captivating and romantic, this book will keep you begging for more books from Ann Maxwell.
