Readers will be on the edge of their seats with this concluding episode of the riveting best-selling series by one of America's most gifted fantasy writers.
In the center if Luster stands an enormous tree called the Axis Mundi, the Heart of the World. But now that tree is wounded, pierced through by magic. And through that wound marches an army of Hunters, led by the sinister and vengeful Beloved. And they are all determined to destroy each and every unicorn.
As the unicorns gather to defend their lives, the human girl, Cara, is sent on a mission to meet a ferocious and mysterious dragon. Faced with perilous danger, Cara must make a desperate decision that will change her life forever.
The Last Hunt by Bruce Coville wraps up the Unicorn Chronicles series with a fantastic story. He has been weaving his tale over the past three books and brings it all to a stunning conclusion. It took Coville almost two decades to complete the story but it was worth the wait!
Cara and crew must accomplish all manor of missions for the Queen and Luster. The Last Hunt is fast paced and all of my favorite characters got to make one last appearance. This young adult fantasy weighs in at a whopping 605 pages and there is not one page where something isn’t happening.
Overall it was a fantastic ride and I am so glad that I rediscovered this series!!
