In the center of Luster towers an enormous tree that is the Heart of the World. Now the tree is wounded, pierced by a tunnel that connects it to Earth. Through that tunnel strides Beloved, the ancient enemy of the unicorns, followed by an army of Hunters eager to destroy every last unicorn. At the center of this great struggle is the human girl, Cara Diana Hunter, who sets out with her friend, the gryphon Medafil, to ask a dragon to aid the unicorns. As she travels, Cara meets not only the dragon, but a mysterious stranger who may hold the key to Luster's secrets.

As the threads of destiny weave about her, Cara will discover at last the truth about the unicorns - a truth that brings hard choices for everyone she loves as this magnificent, multi-stranded saga thunders to its astonishing conclusion.

Listener Opinions

    " 3.5-4 stars. It's finally over! Definitely the longest on-going series I've ever waited for. It was nice to see the conclusion of certain characters and to see where everyone ended up, though I wish there'd been a little more time at the end to really cover everyone's proper ending. The extremely short chapters that switched viewpoints every time were frustrating (starting from the last book) though I eventually got used to it--didn't like it, but got used to it. The Dimblethum's story was interesting and I liked how it all tied together. It kind of makes me want to go back and reread the first one, though I read it so many times I could probably recite it word for word. "

    " I loved The Unicorn Chronicles series and was sorry to have it end. Maybe that's why Coville took so long to complete all four books (1994-2010). When Natalie was in elementary school she brought home book one, "Into the Land of the Unicorns", and we were immediately hooked. The entire time I was reading the first book, I thought it would make a great Disney musical cartoon. It's a great fantasy series, including unicorns, dragons, centaurs, dwarves, wizards, geomancer, magic, other strange creatures, and a villanous woman and her Hunters. "

    " Fairly entertaining although epic fantasy is clearly not this author's strength. The stuff with Fallon, Elihu and Allura was the weakest plot thread. Most of the secondary characters who died were underdeveloped, leaving the reader no real reason to grieve. The concept of slowly growing a new world is fascinating and the most intriguing idea of the book. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Andrea | 12/21/2013

    " completely unsatisfying and melodramatic. lacks the spark and originality of the first two books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Martha | 12/21/2013

    " I was glad I read it, to finish the series, but it wasn't the same as the rest of the series. It was more... mystical, perhaps. At any rate, it was different enough to create a feeling of disorientation for me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mokamonkey | 12/11/2013

    " I think I might have liked it more if I had read or listened to the others in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joan | 11/18/2013

    " This is the final volume of the Unicorn Chronicles which took Coville several decades to write. He is pretty ambitious in this book, perhaps too ambitious but does get the sprawling book all tidied up at the end. Cara, her grandmother and the unicorns have to face their ancient enemy, Beloved, who is Cara's umpteen great grandmother and hates unicorns. How they and all creatures of Luster face Beloved is what this exciting book is about. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amelia | 10/14/2013

    " An awesome conclusion to the amazing Unicorn Chronicles! It was very well written and had an intricate storyline. It's a great book for anyone who likes fantasy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 April | 10/13/2013

    " Very nice but somewhat predictable finish for the series. There are numerous ways that this story (or another story in the Unicorn Chronicles could) continue. I hope to see more Unicorn Chronicle books from Bruce Coville. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 June | 10/11/2013

    " I had thought I had read this, but I was wrong. This has some surprising twists. Despite being over 600 pages this was a quick read for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah N. | 9/11/2013

    " I really liked this series. It was a fun, quick read. And this 4th book is very good. However, I wish he had extended the ending a little by adding a couple more chapters. It seems like he rushed the ending. It's still good, but I wanted more. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katie Schwarz | 9/10/2013

    " The book was REALLY good, until the end...It left soo much incomplete. I was pretty upset; I want a fifth book, badly. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bridgett | 7/27/2013

    " I really liked this book and enjoyed learning about Luster's creation and mythology. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rose | 3/31/2013

    " And finally, 12 years after I started the series, the epic unicorn saga comes to an end. Coville did not disappoint. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heidi | 10/17/2012

    " I like how the world and it's creation was fleshed out, but not entirely satisfied with how some characters were left at the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Korin McGinty | 10/5/2012

    " And it was actually 605 pages... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debbie | 1/5/2012

    " My daughter and I really like this series. We were excited to finally be able to read Book 4. We both hope that there will be many more stories about the unicorns and other inhabitants of Luster. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie Jane | 12/6/2011

    " It was a long wait for the series conclusion, but it was worth it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 6/29/2011

    " I think I might have liked it more if I had read or listened to the others in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephanie | 3/24/2011

    " It lost a star because there are a lot of stories that were never started/finished. He left some loose ends maybe in hopes to create more. Well, it took him almost 20 YEARS to finish 4 books, I don't want any more loose ends. I want it over. It's not over. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tammie | 2/7/2011

    " This one seemed to take forever to get to the end, "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie Jane | 1/3/2011

    " It was a long wait for the series conclusion, but it was worth it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Becca | 10/31/2010

    " This was so disappointing. After all this time, surely Coville could have written a better book? There were too many hurried plotlines, a few self/reader insertions, and a lot of overly-obvious plot points. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Korin | 10/16/2010

    " And it was actually 605 pages... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christine | 9/28/2010

    " This was an excellent end to a wonderful series. I love that he left so many things open for possible other books centered around Luster, but still wrapped up all the characters & story lines within the unicorn chronicles. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 April | 9/26/2010

    " Very nice but somewhat predictable finish for the series. There are numerous ways that this story (or another story in the Unicorn Chronicles could) continue. I hope to see more Unicorn Chronicle books from Bruce Coville. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alyssa | 9/11/2010

    " Just as good as the last 3 books in the series. Definitely recommend them all (start at the beginning). Adventure and fantasy, fun characters and interesting plot lines. Don't be fooled by the "children's book" classification. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tiffiny | 9/11/2010

    " We listened to this last (I think) in the Unicorn Chronicles series. Great story, lots of action and unexpected twists. Great ending too! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa | 8/31/2010

    " still as interesting and involved as the other's in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 8/21/2010

    " I really liked this series. It was a fun, quick read. And this 4th book is very good. However, I wish he had extended the ending a little by adding a couple more chapters. It seems like he rushed the ending. It's still good, but I wanted more. "
