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.

I believe that it would be beneficial if we kinda cut down on the baby making. The more people on earth, that means that more resources are being used. In a way gays are doing you a favor. Odds are, early on, gays were most likely killed for being different. So it wasn't like they had to chance to evolve .   If gays/lesbians we made to have babies then gays would not even exist. Just because a century old book says that gays cant be married doesn't mean people are going to listen to it. Modify you bible to the now times. Rules change, so should your's. Interesting... And how do you suggest we do that? Prevent people from having children? Slowly dispatch of the current population? I'm sorry. Life is the most precious  gift. I don't believe we have the right take that away from another. *cough cough* Back to the main topic at hand... I agree that "there are plenty of people, gay and straight, that love each other." You're not wrong in that assumption. However, there are kinds of love -though at the root core it comes with willing the good others. (We should "love one another as He has loved us.") But the attraction and desire to be with another as as man and wife can be one? That's called lust. As a Christian, I believe that such physicality should be reserved for marriage with the intention of bringing new life into the world.  Like any group seen as different, homosexuals have been persecuted (ex: WWII) -as they still are. But in some cultures such as the Roman? Homosexual relationships were actually encouraged. Specifically, male relationships -many, not all, between those of striking age differences. Now do you believe these were sought out for pleasure or out of love? Haha, actually? The Book's been around for well over a century now... Perhaps, maybe there just might be a sufficient reason as to why. Now, to change the rules? Sorry,  no can do. They aren't mine to alter,  though they're certainly mine to follow (;
