Into the Land of Unicorns Rating: 5


Author: Bruce Coville

It began with a chase. One minute Cara and her grandmother are minding their own business. The next, they’re being followed. Her grandmother gives Cara her precious amulet and tells her to climb to the top of the church's bell tower. On the twelfth chime, Cara must jump. Is it a suicide mission, or is magic afoot?


Luster

Cara jumps. She lands not on the street below, but in an entirely different world—a world of unicorns and other fabulous creatures. A world known as Luster. With the help of a young unicorn named Lightfoot, two strange creatures called a Dimblethum and a Squijim, and a dwarf named Grimwold, Cara sets off on a journey to fulfill her grandmother’s wish. She must find the Queen of unicorns and relay an important message.

A Difficult Journey

But the journey is no easy feat. They get wind that Cara’s pursuer has somehow entered Luster as well. How long before he tracks them down? And what exactly does he want? Soon Cara learns the shocking truth about her family’s past, the origins of Luster, and the reason the strange man is after her.


The Bottom Line

[b]Into the Land of Unicorns[/b] is a short, concise start to The Unicorn Chronicles series. It gives you everything you need to know for future books, and paints a vivid picture of the beautiful land of unicorns. If you’re in that 9 to 12 age range, and you enjoy magical adventures, then you’ll love The Unicorn Chronicles.

    We have the right to riot so yes i think it is ok if we riot, but... violence is never ok. You can get your point across without fight about it. That only makes the situation worse.
