BLOG TOUR: The Unicorn Quest by Kamilla Benko


ABOUT THE BOOK


Claire Martinson still worries about her older sister Sophie, who battled a mysterious illness last year. But things are back to normal as they move into Windermere Manor... until the sisters climb a strange ladder in a fireplace and enter the magical land of Arden.

There, they find a world in turmoil. The four guilds of magic no longer trust each other. The beloved unicorns have gone, and terrible wraiths roam freely. Scared, the girls return home. But when Sophie vanishes, it will take all of Claire's courage to climb back up the ladder, find her sister, and uncover the unicorns' greatest secret.

REVIEW

Unicorns are pretty popular among my girl readers these days and I have to admit I'm a fan of them too.  So when I heard about this book I knew I needed to pick it up.  And I'm glad I did.  First of all it starts in a mysterious old mansion full of artifacts, a setting that I happen to particularly love, I mean who wouldn't want to explore such a place.  Second, we have two sisters who are very different who are struggling to get along but who love each other.  And third, there is a quest.  Interestingly it's Claire, the uncertain one, who finds comfort in her pencil, that must gather her courage to find her missing sister.  And things get even more complicated when Claire discovers that her sister has been accused of stealing an important unicorn artifact.  With the help of some new found friends, Claire sets out to find her sister, not realizing that she will find far more than she ever bargained for along the way.  A fun, engaging fantasy for the unicorn-loving set.  And isn't that cover gorgeous!
