Description

On a snowy night Cara and her grandmother are pursued into St. Christopher's church by an unknown man. Clutching her grandmother's mysterious amulet, and following the old woman's instructions, Cara escapes their pursuer and falls into Luster, the world of the unicorns. Attacked by a monstrous little creature called a "delver", Cara is rescued by a shambling, manlike beast called "the Dimblethum." Soon Cara has also met a rebellious young unicorn named Lightfoot, and a ridiculous little creature known as "the Squijum." With their help, Cara embarks on a journey across Luster to deliver a message from her grandmother to the queen of the unicorns. But to survive the trip, Cara must come face to face with her greatest hope, and her greatest fear.

Professional reviews

"Fantasy and mystery combine when Cara is forced to flee Earth, clutching her grandmother's amulet and carrying a message for the unicorn queen. The dramatic production helps the listener distinguish the many fantastic characters inhabiting the land of the unicorns. Particularly good performances are given by Mimi Holbert, who nicely captures the amusing, squirrel-like Squijum, and Kate Huddleston, who elegantly portrays the dragon, Firethroat. Children who enjoy fantasy and the many young girls who clamor for unicorn stories may appreciate this first installment of the Unicorn Chronicles, despite the mediocre performances turned in by the narrator and most of the cast.
