Having not read the previous three books in this series, I felt a little lost with all of the names of characters—which, to me, sounded like characters from a Harry Potter book. This finale book seemed to bring all the loose ends together and there were more than a few cliff-hangers to keep me wanting to turn the page. Also, the story centers on unicorns— a sure to-be-favorite of the middle school aged reader. I do not have the other books in this series, but as I was reading this book in the library, a seventh grader came up to me and told me that this was one of her favorite series…so I’ll probably purchase the others.
