The Seven Jewels Of Chamar - Raymond F. Jones

We do have a superhuman in this one, and a bit of an antihero you might say, in the form of the firebird.

A woman with extreme longevity and experience looking for some recovery.

She's more than happy to put the bad guys down like dogs, if it means they won't kill again.

The good guys will get it, too, if they aren't careful:-

""Listen to me!" the voice of Firebird commanded again. "I could have killed you then. My shot landed two feet to the left of you. Now will you hear what I have to say?"

"It's easy to call your shots after they are fired."

"Here's one neither to the right or left," said Firebird evenly.

Before she finished speaking a blast of flame burst over the huge stalagmite in front of Nathan. The fire of it flowed around the sides and enveloped him in a searing blanket."

So, help her, or eat hot rays.
