I really loved this world. It was a super fast pace read. I think sometimes the fast paceness took me out of the story a little bit. But I really loved the creatures and unicorns at the heart of this novel. I also loved how this book took place over a whole year. I also loved all the mytery and intigue that were at the heart of this read. I also loved the character at the heart of thi novel and loved the friendship the developed at the heart of the read!! I found this book to such a fun read and reminded me of percy jackson in some ways!! Really excited for book 2!!… (mer)

Ooh, Skandar and Kenna possibly being together in book #3 is exciting. I can't wait to follow this group of friends as they enter their new year of training. I love that the bottom 6 are no longer declared nomads, it looks like things could be changing for the better on the island. It will be interesting to see if they ask Skandar to use his ability to reunite riders and unicorns or if people will start to change their assumptions about wild unicorns.

Unicorns Belong in Nightmares

A.F. Steadman flips the myths of unicorns, with a high action contest of skill, and a dangerous quest to find out what these fearsome beasts really are. Skandar Smith dreams of attending the Chaos Cup, a deadly race using blood thirsty unicorns. Winning a race could solve his family’s financial problems, and make his dad proud. This is not a tame race, but a battle of magic and danger. When a mysterious cloaked figure on a wild black unicorn called the Weaver appears to end the races forever. Skandar must solve the mystery of the unicorn thief.

A.F. Steadman mixes some serious themes within a magical adventure. Skandar’s life is filled with loss and disappointment, and his one hope is that a unicorn can change his life. These are not traditional unicorns, but winged monsters and growling carnivores. Which add humor to an otherwise sad story. Each unicorn has magic relating to the four elements of fire, water, wind, earth, and the fifth element of spirit. All with their own personality types, and other fun classifying symbols. This combination of magic, and flying deadly unicorns adds its own interesting problems. Including plenty of fart jokes as well.

He may be in training to become a unicorn rider, but Skandar is told very little about the ways of magic. His search for answers bring very little help. He must rely on his new friends, and found family, to make it through training alive. He will need them all, and their snarling unicorns, to face the truth that awaits him.
