Grade 5-8 This final volume satisfyingly concludes an exciting and intricately plotted series that began with Into the Land of Unicorns (Scholastic) 16 years ago. In the parallel world of Luster, inhabited by a large cast of familiar creatures such as unicorns and dragons, along with unfamiliar beings such as Squijum, a squirrel/monkeylike creature, and Dimblethum, a half human, half bearlike creature, Coville creates an epic story of the fight for good versus evil with all of its inherent ambiguities. Beloved's centuries-old vow to hunt down and kill all of Luster's unicorns because one killed her father is finally about to come true. Only teenaged Cara, with her mixed unicorn and human blood, granddaughter of the Queen of the Unicorns, and of Beloved herself, can save them. Powerful beings older than the land itself aid Cara in her quest to heal the rift and defeat Beloved. Despite this volume's length, the pace is brisk, with one cliff-hanging adventure following another right up to the climactic conclusion. Events from previous books are mentioned in the narrative, making it not absolutely necessary to have read the other books in order, although that would be ideal. Fans of the series will be delighted. Sharon Rawlins, New Jersey State Library, Trenton

I used to be a big fan of this series. When I was a kid, I had been heartbroken when I couldn't find any more books--in the same series--after book 2. But then, years later, I found the 3rd book at a used bookstore. I had been excited--utterly elated--at my find, and so began my search to find the last book in the series.
One can find the last book on Amazon--but each and every copy is listed at exorbitant prices for, in some cases, an old used library book. Highway robbery! It is utterly ridiculous! And so, even though I prefer the written word, I thought that it would be better to have the audio book than nothing at all. And oh how wrong I was!
In my opinion, this audio book has been poorly done. There are too many different voice actors--who have over-dramatized their parts. I only listened to about 10 minutes of it--I can't stand it any longer!! My desire to read this book has died. I should care.. I can easily imagine kid!me shaking her head at my current lack of patience... but I am an adult now, who doesn't have the time to deal with stuff that is of poor quality--and if I don't enjoy it, why should I spend time on it when there are things that are of more importance??
One star given because Mr. Bruce Coville is a good writer, who had enriched my childhood. I do have many fond memories of his older books. ...Just avoid the audio books.
I still think of this book like I was that 14 year old girl. I Love this book. Things are differnt now than when I was that young but I read this and take myself to Luster, where things are different and you fight for whats right. As an adult there are questions to be answered about why they put this character in here or why did he write this it was pointless. For me everything ment something simply because its a world that doesnt have to have its people be self centered.
The book itself is awesome. It ends without any loose ends. Yes there is the questions that start going like what happens now but your heart is at peace with how it ends. You cry, you laugh and you breath a sigh of relief when its over. The series is great and I look forward to reading it to my future kids for them to enjoy it. (even if they dont have to wait as long as I did)
*I might edit this review once I have read this book. :)
This story picks up right where its predecessor left off, so if you haven't read the rest of the series, start there. (The upside of this that little time is wasted on giving a background for those who haven't read the others.) The unicorns of Luster are in grave danger: the final Hunt has begun and they are being picked off one by one. Cara Diana is sent to recruit help from the strange, mysterious dragon Graumag. She herself is in no small danger: as a child born to unicorns and descended from Beloved, a prophecy claims her as being the only end to the Hunt. Meanwhile, Cara's beloved Lightfoot teams up with Cara's father, Ian, Ian's newly rescued wife, Martha, and Rajiv, the street urchin to make it back to the heart of Luster and find Cara as Fallon, their mysterious and gorgeous companion, departs on his own to search for his long-lost friend Elihu. As tension mounts and threads weave seemingly effortlessly into one whole, Coville brings to a close the journey so many have taken with him. (His fans sigh in relief.)
This book is not perfect. I understand that Coville was under a lot of pressure to finish this book, but so many things were not fleshed out to the extent they might have been. The entire ending felt rushed and I'm convinced that the book could have been about one hundred pages longer. On the whole, though, I think it's well worth your time. The ending was ultimately satisfying. The book is chock-full of the little details Coville is famous for. (The Squijum has a backstory! We have at last the seeds of romance between Cara and Lightfoot!) And like the end of all great epics, you walk away bittersweet; grieving for what was lost and satisfied by the seeds of hope and redemption that are revealed. Highly recommended.
