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.

    Although I think a tree stump has more brains than the two of them combined, I would rather have Trump in office. I really dislike the guy, but his ideas are more my taste than Clinton's. He also seems sturdier than she is, mentally I mean (and physically too ofc but that doesn't matter).  I also gained more respect for Donald Trump over the past week or two.  I don't know how many of you are aware, but Louisiana was recently affected by a very bad flood. As natural disasters do, it destroyed housings and people's personal belongings and took lives. The damage to them was nowhere near as bad as that, but some of my family was affected by this flood, which I guess could give me a bit of a bias.    Donald Trump personally went down to Baton Rouge and handed out toys for children, food, and clothes, among other things. He also made a contribution fund to the state's flood relief charity. What did Hillary Clinton do? Go on Jimmy Kimmel and make fun of Trump quotes. Even if it was only to give himself a better name, the fact that he was so generous enough to provide for these poor people when Clinton, and even Obama, did not would definitely earn my vote if I were legal enough to participate in elections (which I hate to say because I don't care for both Trump and politics in general).       Though, I'd rather my cat be president.
