Dark Whispers Rating: 5


Author: Bruce Coville

In Dark Whispers, book 3 of The Unicorn Chronicles by Bruce Coville, Cara sets out on a mission to uncover the reason for the everlasting feud between the unicorns and the delvers.


The Ancient Prophecy

Luster is in danger. The vengeful Beloved and her team of unicorn hunters plan to enter Luster and wipe out the unicorn population. Meanwhile, Grimwold, keeper of the Unicorn Chronicles, discovers an ancient poem that reveals a prophecy about the unicorns, a prophecy that somehow ties them to their enemies, the delvers, and a being called the Whisperer.


The Centaur King

The unicorn Queen sends Cara and her pals on a quest: she must seek out the Chiron, King of the centaurs. He may be their only hope in learning the truth about this prophecy. Why are the unicorns and the delvers enemies? And who or what is the Whisperer?


The Rainbow Prison

Meanwhile, Cara’s father is on a quest of his own. He and two comrades look for a way in to the Rainbow Prison, a world where Cara’s mother has been trapped for many years. But a world made entirely of light has its disadvantages: the water and food is insubstantial—made of nothing but air and red-colored light. Somehow, Cara’s father must rescue his wife and find a way to bring her back to Earth before he and his companions die of thirst and hunger.


The Bottom Line

The Unicorn Chronicles is a magical series for young adults, particularly YA girls. The third book in the series, Dark Whispers, is long, exciting and offers a great twist at the end. Readers will travel into the dark and gloomy delver caves and discover a part of Luster that isn’t so beautiful.

    I'm drowning in my own sorrow, I feel trapped in this dark place, Hoping for a better day tomorrow, I just need time and space, Or is it too late? My happiness has already been replaced, Now my heart is out for debate, Does anyone see ## ####? For gods sake, When you look in my eyes all you see is rain, It's my loss and Satans gain, Why am I letting him win? I'm not the type to ever sin! I'm breaking down, It's to late to turn this around, But what more am I really needing? I have friends and family that love me And in school my education is succeeding, It's so dark why can't I see? This depression is taking over me, This is a horrible sight, Is it all in my head? Taking medication every night, I can't sleep rolling around In my bed, "I can't take this I'm done fighting myself"  is what I said. This chemical imbalance in my head caused by fighting with oneself is taking over my health, Have I truly givin up? Playing this role is tough, Being happy I have learned to pretend, But faking a smile everyday is not enough, I try to think positive, But things pile up on me and become to rough, The story of my life is this the end? Stomach tied in knots, eyes bottled up, Now depression is my new best friend, I feel like I've been driving on the same road for days, and finally hit a dead end, I've never done anything to hurt anyone, this isn't fair, Someone help me is anyone there?!? I'm dying for help, Where is the warmth and light? These things to me are unfelt, There it is, I see the light, Standing here I sigh, As it comes towards me it's so bright, it's shining in my eyes and BAMM!  God has saved me once again, I get a second chance , For love and romance, My life is renewed, I get to start fresh start new, Now i can do things I never got to do, And its All thanks to you, My guardian angel sent from above, Here to guide me with all of your endless love, You were by my side this whole time. And guided me through , For that matter, Now and forever, I will always love you
