It was fast moving, and full of excitement. The characters blended well together, even though you had dragons, unicorns, and humans. Not an easy thing to do in my humble opinion.
I love Fantasy/Sci-Fi and read it almost exclusively although I have read several biographies on native american chiefs, Rasputin, Stalin, and other interesting people. I will find it hard to find a Sci/Fi that is equal to this one.
Excellent story Chrys
The Unicorn Throne: The Four Kingdoms Book Two
The book becomes a captivating story of courageous women, unicorns and dragons. Fianna has to confront and conquer her weaknesses and decide where her heart lies- with Deian the pig herder, or Jeremy the knight. Lady Shallah feeds her ambitions for the throne to the point of betrayal of what matters most. And Pealla stands by Fianna through all the turmoil, her loyalty unquestionable. Deian becomes one with the dragons. Prancer learns to lose and find trust again. Until all the three kingdoms are united for the fight.
The story is a bit confusing at first with the narrator head hopping between human and speaking animals. However, as a reader you soon get into the spirit of things. The book starts with the imminent war but its urgency is watered down a bit as the relevant characters are set into place. Once that is done the story picks up its pace and does not slow down. The writer develops his characters, both human and other kinds in a remarkable manner. They have strengths and weaknesses, emotions and passions. I love them all.
I received a copy of this book for an honest review.
Knights and squires, Unicorns and Dragons, war, love, magic, lore and courtly tradition - this novel was a feast in every way. I felt myself absolutely drawn in to the world of the Four Kingdoms and the life and trials of the characters. The characters are very well-drawn indeed, I believed in them absolutely. The narrative is fast-paced and written in a style which is totally accessible and yet also richly descriptive. The end sections, in particular, were breathlessly exciting, dizzying with magic and power, but also with pathos.
I especially like the way the author challenged stereotypes in her work. I was shocked to find that ‘The Colonel’ was a woman, and then shocked at myself for being shocked! It is one of this book’s great strengths that it treats gender with a delightful and refreshing equality; young adults of both sexes will find much to entrance, excite and emulate here. Highly recommended!
One particular thing I liked was how well-paced the novel is. I love fantasy books, but the one issue I have with them is that authors usually spend so much time describing every detail of everything and everyone, that it feels like it drags and just takes forever for anything to actually happen in the story. A lot of times I lose interest and I have to make several attempts to get back into it. I did NOT have that issue with this book.
I also liked the angle with the 'supernatural' creatures, like the dragons and unicorns. A lot of times, dragons are treated as monsters with no human characteristics at all, but here we see dragons with their own culture, goals, and so on. It's refreshing to see fantasy creatures personified like that.

Fianna and the Prancer (unicorn) must continue their journeys to save the land, but it's time to face their own demons. Deian is taken away on his own quest, and in so doing puts himself in the most dangerous position of all. Love is had and lost, wounds are opened and healed, and the story is left to a fulfilling, but perfectly open-ended ending, leaving the mind to create new and wonderful endings to the stories of these characters.
The author is excellent at foreshadowing, giving the reader just enough to wonder and dread, but not so much as to spell everything out. There is a beautiful blend of fantasy and sci-fi, which elevates the story from expected to stunning. As with the other, this book comes highly recommended. You won't be disappointed!
