Song of the Wanderer Rating: 5


Author: Bruce Coville

The Queen of the Unicorns has a dying wish to say goodbye to the Wanderer. She sends Cara on a mission: she must return to Earth and bring her grandmother, Ivy Morris (a.k.a the Wanderer) back to Luster, the land of unicorns. But returning to Earth is not an easy task, especially now that only a few gates between the worlds remain.


Quirky Creatures and Evil Ancestors

Cara and a loyal team of humans and unicorns travel with her through the perilous wilderness of Luster. She meets many people along the way, including M’Gama, a Geomancer; the Queen’s Players; a little man named Grimwald; Medafil, a griffin; and Ebillan, a greedy dragon. The journey is filled with dangerous and deadly battles. But the most dangerous threat of all is Beloved, Cara’s evil ancestor who wants nothing more than to rid the world of unicorns.


Lost in Luster

Cara must travel to the gate buried deep inside a dragon’s den. And somehow she must return to Earth, retrieve her grandmother and bring her back as fast as she can. If she’s takes too long, the gates will shift, and she will wind up being lost in an unknown part of Luster.


The Bottom Line

Song of the Unicorns is book two in The Unicorn Chronicles by Bruce Coville. The story is magical, heartwarming and invigorating all rolled into one! You’ll love Cara’s bravery, and the unique and quirky personalities of all the unicorns. Best of all, the series continues with The Unicorn Chronicles #3: Dark Whispers.

Are you saying that they require more effort than they can give back, or that they hold more mystery than knowledge? There's some phenomena that goes unexplained. But that's the important part, we don't have an explanation. By using ghosts as a solution, we are making unexplained assumptions, you're just displacing your lack of explanation onto the ghost, rather than the event itself. And that's the other part, I haven't heard any physics based woo-free explanation for a disembodied intelligence that lacks a physical body but manages to interact with the physical world. So, for me it's basic Occam's razor. The more complicated answer could be true, but until we have evidence to support the assumptions made it's best to go with the simpler hypotheses that operate within the framework we already have.      First off, I do not believe in ghosts. But, why does this entity have to be intelligent? Why can't be some type of unknown energetic remnant of a past life that's being harbored in a given location? Also, how is nothing simpler than a hypothesis? Admitting to not having an explanation is not a bad thing, especially when you don't have one. There's nothing wrong with saying you haven't been convinced of any particular hypothesis so far, and therefore it remains unexplained to you. You aren't saying it was nothing, you're saying you don't know what it was.  How would we measure this remnant energy of a past life? How many joules should we expect to see? The reason we presume cognizance is because people asserting hypotheses about ghosts often assume that these spirits interact with the world and possess some understanding of cause and effect.
