review 1: Rating= 3.5 starsI can't give it a 3 stars since it seems to low and I really enjoyed the book but can't seem to give it a full 4 stars either. The tale was as fantastic and whimsical as the world of fabulous beasts,although I wish that they played more of a role in the story than they actually did. The unicorn and the main character taking up most of the book. The first 3 chapters were prolly the hardest to get through. Not that I didn't enjoy them..but It through me off a bit reading a story within a story. I don't like spoilers and although the beginning was necessary for you to understand the book, it was hard because it went on for 3 whole chapters!The writing was very good. The author did a very good job of allowing you to fully get into the characters mindset. As we... morell as how she communicates with the unicorn. My favorite character in the book had to be the 2 headed snake known as the amphisbaena. Every time it was introduced in the book it got me laughing so hard sometimes Id start tearing up from laughing that hard!As far as the plot line goes it was exciting and sometimes had big lulls that I didn't care to read about at all. The book is very descriptive so you get a good sense of the world you are plunged into called Goloth,or The Land of the Fabulous Beast. MORE TO COME NEED TO GOTO BED... I do have to admit that after reading about the unicorn tapestries I really would love to see them in real life
review 2: I'd give this book 2 1/2 stars if I had the option. I liked it but not 3 stars worth of like. It took me a good 100 pages to get into the story. Normally, I would have given up after 30 pages but it's a unicorn book and I must read ALL the unicorn books in existence! The book began like a cross between Maurissa Guibord's Warped and Bruce Coville's Unicorn Chronicles series but the execution just wasn't there. I liked the premise of the book and the world of Goloth but I found the majority of the characters lacking. Still, I'm happy to have another addition to the unicorn genre. less

This was a decent book as far as young adult goes...slightly predictable but overall enjoyable.
Well written book. Only problem is it involves some bad language
sadly i have to take a break on reading this book.
Truly disappointing.
