Review:
The tale is set in old and mystical Scotland where the natural structure of the deer herds is threatened. An anterless, evil Drail (dragon) has taken over as Lord of the Herd. His power increases his control over a close and loyal group of strong males, the Dralia. Into this tyranny, a defenseless fawn, Rannoch is born; the foretold oak leaf blaze is on his brow.

Fire Bringer is a skillful work by Clement-Davies, in which the suffering of the deer is potent. Their savior suffers most of all. Like other powerful fantasies, this one teaches reality.
