Is it a rule of the Universe chiselled into stone somewhere that once a novelist begins to write a series each book has to, by law, become more and more of a door stop Most stories like this have a child on an adventure and conveniently get rid of the parents, after reading this one I agree with that decision. I am really looking forward to what happens in book 4. I’m fully tempted to go back and reread this book again as I said there are many things going on in this book.

Unicorn Chronicles: #3 Dark Whispers

If I was reviewing it as a standalone, I would be pretty tangled up between the parts I loved and the parts I. The whole reason the unicorns had the ceremony that created the whisperer was kind of a stretch too. I can see where whisperz coming from as an adult, but as a kid I liked reading his parts from the first two books aloud. As a result, three adventures run side by side, narrated in intermittent chapters.


Want to Read saving…. I’m still trying to decide whether that’s a good thing or not. This is the first time I’ve wbispers seen brown ink being used in a book and I hope I never come across it again except in the sequel of course: I dunno what the delvers think they’d do once there, but none of that would happen, hell, they’d be lucky to just be slaughtered.

I’m finishing this series for my younger self who wanted desperately to travel to Luster and meet the unicorns. The first was Cara having to strip in front of the Delver king. He lives in Syracuse, New York, with his wife, Katherine. It’s believable, too, in the sense that everything doesn’t go happily ever after for the protagonists.

These books are rich in human insight, and I really think that they are eventually going to be recognized as modern fantasy classics alongside books like Lloyd Alexander’s Prydain cycle and Madeleine L’Engle’s Time Quintet.
