Melody has special powers and a need to find out her true identity. She arrives in London looking for answers to her questions and ends up discovering a whole new world that opens itself up to her. I am looking forward to reading the next books in the trilogy as it will be interesting to see where Melody and her friends go from here.
I love how Swan sets the scene in his novel, and how he describes Melody’s surroundings. I found myself mapping out London in my head and imagining myself in Melody’s place. Thoroughly enchanting! Melody’s Unicorn is definitely the type of book my bookish childhood self would have jumped on. And I have no qualms about saying how much I enjoyed it as an adult!

I particularly appreciate a book that, as well as telling a good story, makes you question some of the basics you take for granted, such as truth being in the eye of the beholder. There are no two-dimensional characters to be found here; each is complex and makes you want to know more about them, their past and their motives. And don't go through making assumptions when there's more to everything than meets the eye! I particularly enjoyed Melody's meeting with the ambiguous Sir Gawain – a haunting twist to an Arthurian legend.
I notice on the back cover the words ‘juvenile fiction’ – this categorising of books has always been a minor bugbear of mine. I believe if a book has a lesson to teach you that you’ve not yet learnt, it’s a suitable read whether you’re one or one hundred. So I have no qualms in saying I thoroughly enjoyed this at the age of 27 and would recommend it to both my parents or my children.
