Into the Land of the Unicorns ó Ieving she will survive Cara jumps off the church roof and into Luster land of the unicornsIn Luster Cara meets many wonderful creatures but the most magnificent of all is Lightfoot a rebellious young unicorn Cara's band of friends comes to include a hairy creature named the Dimblethum and the. I really enjoyed this book I think I enjoyed it the further into it I got because I began to realize the scope of the book Also because it’s a series I wasn’t sure how much of the book would be self contained vs continuous I adored the way the “fantasy world” and how Coville described the various landscapes Ditto for the creatures of the fantasy world From both known fantastical creatures like unicorns to some new at least I’ve never heard of them before delightful creatures I felt as though each character had a distinct personality – even if it took me a little bit to figure them out And I felt invested in them all which is a good feat for the book being only 150 pagesThat’s really my only reason for the 4 stars instead of 5 There’s really nothing wrong with the book that I can find to warrant only 4 stars – but for me I’m used to in depth books with great detail to the plots This was the only thing I wanted of; I felt there was enough plot and character back story that the book could have been expanded and delved into further Though perhaps that wasn’t the author’s intent – or it wasn’t the intent of this book since it’s a seriesHowever I would think this a great book to start out for younger readers And it’s a delightful treat for those of us who adore fantasy books to read between tomes free download º E-book, or Kindle E-pub å Bruce Coville

Ths is a really lovely story creating the imaginary world of Luster peopled or should that be beinged by recognizably imaginary creatures such as Unicorns Dragons Dwarves and then assorted creations from the imagination of Bruce Coville These include sinister large eyed nightmares called Delvers large gorillamen called Dimblethum and then a monkey like creature called a Suijim This latter animal is a bit annoying He strikes me as the 'amusing ' character that the modern Walt Disney films have a tendency to insert into the action or children's cartoons are festooned with They are unnecesary and serve no real purpose other than to be 'cutesy poo' thanks MMand simply get in the way of the story tellingThat having been said the main thrust of the story is of Cara a human girl who is sent into the land to warn the Unicorns that they are in great danger from the return of the Beloved and her hunters These are the sworn enemies of the Unicorns as a result of historical interactions Coville introduces the character of the 'baddie' Beloved and explains how she came to be so hateful and loathing of the Unicorns It is a clever and itself logical progression through fear to hate showing how received positions unsupported by evidence can still become accepted and entrenched Cara possessing one of the five amulets of the ueen of the Unicorns is given the role of returning this amulet to the Monarch which can act as a gateway into Luster and therefore is a dangerous tool for her enemies This journey accounts for the story The descriptions of the places she visits and the creatures with whom she visits are imaginative and original The incorporation of myth and legend are weaved beautifully into the story to the extent that i am not totally certain where ancient myth and Coville imagination begin and end The Dragon perfectly named as Lady Firethroat protects herself by the enchantment of her heart kept safe in a golden casket Three drops of her hot blood dropped in a jewelled chalice shares her gift of 'the gift of tongues of knowledge of the languages of all creatures' the unicorn's horn heals physical ills and wounds and involves the unicorn giving of himherself in the act HeShe can heal physical wounds but not spiritual ones These Coville is saying are deeper and involve than just patching or tending they need to be uncovered faced and understood There is a wisdom in these stories because they speak of heroism and sacrifice alliance and friendship fear and predjudice Once again i could see how an interested teacher or even parent could use these stories in reflection or discussion about what we are called to be ourselves He describes simply but emotively'She was small and slender as luminous as a rainbow as fragile as a promise You could see through her as if you were seeing tomorrow''His huge paw rested against her cheek it lay as delicately as a butterfly''That piece of horn was now lodged in her heart which was doomed to be forever wounded forever healing both in the same instant'Lovely first volume of an enthralling series Had i known about this when my first nephews and nieces were children I would definitely have given them this story As it is the younger ones and my great nephews may well get them in a few years
