Refresh and try again. Yeah, I understand that a unicorn killed her dad and that’s very sad. The only evidence of her being a child is that she cries pretty much all the time. I’d let it go, but the secondary characters and creatures are really wonderful. The third brue in the Unicorn Chronicles.

The Ravager constellation is connected to Beloved, who uses it as a means of influencing Cara. The characters were a little 2-dimensional as well.

Getting to learn about the creatures of Luster besides the unicorns was possibly my favourite part of this book. To comply with the Wikipedia quality standardsthis book-related article may require cleanup.

I may or may not have done this while reading this book. I’m still trying to decide whether that’s a good thing or not.

This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. I’m always afraid to reread books from my childhood, because often I found that I’ve glorified them in my mind and that they’re a lot crappier than I remember.
