Overall I enjoyed the story. Stanton is especially effective in her presentation of interspecies relationships in a fantasy setting. There is also an intriguing villain.
At times I found the language a little too corny and New Age-y for my tastes. I also didn't like the fact that the book really doesn't hold up as a stand-alone story; the cliffhanger ending seems to lead directly into volume 2. But the imaginative story, together with some clever touches along the way, make it a solid fantasy effort.
The world of Magic has long since held our fascination, as well as the mythical creatures the word evokes. Unicorns are the most magical, purest creatures ever, and it is fitting that they receive a storyline such as this. The balance between good and bad is very balanced and the characters are so wonderfully written, that one can clearly imagine the Unicorns speaking (and not at all like Mr. Ed).
I proudly admit that I'm 28 years old with two children of my own and I love these books.
This is one GREAT book any horse or unicorn lover would have a fabulous time reading!
Other good books:
"The Dragon Chronicles"
"The Book of Night With Moon"
"Into the Land of the Unicorns"
"The Circle of Magic" series
"The Immortals" series
"The song of the Lioness" quartet
"His Dark Materials" trilogy
"The Sight" and "Firebringer"
