  • Mommy, Where Do Baby Unicorns Come From? on April 13, 2011

    A delightful little story, I think perhaps there was just a wee bit too much detail about Chelsea's day at school, but it was well written and I thought the ending was very touching, as a lover of horses and unicorns, I could really relate to this story, and think it would be a lovely tale to read to older children.

    I really enjoyed this book, it did what any good fantasy story should do, it drew me into its world and made me care about its characters, who for me were one of the strong points of the book. Chalice is charming, strong, courageous and feisty, as well as beautiful, but not unbearably perfect, she makes mistakes and unwise decisions. Jeremiah is a perfect hero, handsome, strong and brave but caring and sensitive, and the supporting characters are diverse and well drawn. I could relate very easily to them, and I feel the story would appeal as much to older lovers of fantasy, such as myself, as to young adults. The world building and beautiful descriptions of the countryside and interiors give the story an almost 'Tolkeinesque' atmosphere, and Bunejab reminded me a little of a hobbit, in some ways, but this story is in no way another version of 'Lord Of The Rings', it is a highly original tale which keeps the reader guessing. Some of the language and back story is a bit hard to absorb to start with, but it adds depth and realism to the story. The vivid way the landscape and locations are painted made me feel I was right there. A slight niggle is that at times I felt a little editing would have helped avoid the occasional awkward phrasing or sudden POV switch, and multiple exclamation marks at the end of a sentence, and would have added the finishing 'polish' to what is already a wonderful read, but on the whole I love the writer's 'voice' and the story gripped me until the end - and that's my major criticism. It ended rather abruptly and now I just HAVE to read the next book 'The Firelight of Maalda', which is scheduled to be released towards the end of this year. A great read with an 'epic' feel. I can recommend it to all fantasy lovers.
