  5. I've read some of those stories when I was younger!! I used to get them as gifts. Even still, I'm not super excited for the series because I don't want to have to decipher between what's fact and fiction. On the flip side, Fire Bird looks really good.

    1. Yes, if they were written by Western authors there is bound to be tons of fiction in them.
