Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

This fifth and final volume of Lee's Unicorn Saga (The Unicorn Peace, etc.) proceeds like an expert chess match: brilliant strategies are enacted as political intrigue and daring battles abound, but the characters have about as much color and life as plastic pieces being pushed about on a board. Soon after young Weatherwards are kidnapped from their outposts, the Mage of Strand, Jarrod Courtak of the Magical Lands, finds himself pitted against his former allies, the Emperor Varodias and his bastard son, Malum of Quern. Jarrod must enlist the aid of his unicorn friends to help win this war-and, in so doing, discover a way for the unicorns to gain a safe haven among humankind. Many loose ends from the previous volumes are neatly tied, so loyal followers of these adventures are likely to be pleased, but anyone hoping for something original, exciting or magical will probably be disappointed by what is, ultimately, a lackluster work.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
The Unicorn War by John Lee is the 5th and final book in a series about a Magician, Jarrod Courtak, trying to save his people and culture from the devastation of war by finding the legendary race of unicorns and enlisting their prophesied aid. In this final book of the series, although the peace established in The Unicorn Peace (the 4th book of the series) seemed to ensure tranquility between the world of Strand's 4 Magical Kingdoms and the scientifically oriented Umbrian Empire, the megalomaniac leader of the Umbrian Empire, Varodias, begins a war of conquest to become the Emperor of all Strand. Jarrod Courtak must again enlist the aid of the unicorns to fight for a lasting peace.
Although the series features 'Unicorn' prominently in each title, The Unicorn Quest, The Unicorn Dilemma, The Unicorn Solution, The Unicorn Peace, and The Unicorn War, the emphasis in most of the stories is on political maneuvering, and the waging of war. There are fantastical creatures involved, such as the unicorns, the cloudsteeds (flying horses), and warcats, and also Mages and Magicians of the Magical Kingdoms.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Can you imagine a more horrifyingly uncute apocalypse? Shining hoof pitted against glimmering horn - terrors, horrors, unHOLY. I mean, the dialogue is riveting ("Lt. Fetlock, Ms. Minnie-mae Diamond Sparkles has been hit by peppermint shrapnel!!! Awaiting instructions, SIR!"), but if you are easily disturbed, stay away from this violent romp; it will haunt you in your dreams. I woke up several nights running, upon finishing the saga, drenched in fear, clutching my unicorn pillow to my chest so tightly that his (Lycobus') faux-gem eye left an indent in my bosom. Not for the faint of heart, but 'heart'-ily recommended!
