Journey To Osm - The Blue Unicorn's Tale

 Reader Review





Mimi Jazma



The Blue Unicorns Journey to Osm by Sybrina Durant is a fantasy story intended for reader age 12 to 18. The story revolves around a blue unicorn that is destined to save his tribe but he himself has neither metal horn nor magic. The story is mostly about his journey fulfilling his prophecy, saving his tribe from Magh.

The story moves forward very quickly and I like that, the author obviously doesnt waste any time in getting to the point and for Blue to start his journey. The fantasy world that the author created is believable and I like that the author describes MarBryn very thoroughly. The illustration in the book also helps the reader to imagine how the scene portrays and most of the illustrations actually shows what is going to happen in the chapter which I really like. It is kind of a teaser and you cant stop reading once you see the illustrations of the next chapter because you will be wondering what it means.

At some point, the book gets too cramped with too many characters but once you get the hang of it, the characters involvement flows much better.

I would say that this book is very good for the young teenagers as it has a lot of good moral values in it. On the other hand, the book itself is just simply amazing with the fascinating storyline and quick-witted characters.

YA Unicorn Book Feature - Chasing Shadows by Jules Barrie

Sybrina's Unicorn Book Pick

For Teen, YA and Older Readers

 Today's Unicorn Book Feature is



Chasing Shadows

 By Jules Barrie



When was the last time you checked your shadow? 

Mankind had never paid too much attention to their own shadows. Those dark, mysterious obedient things that follow their every footstep and fickle gestures. No one ever questioned them or, more importantly what happened to them when they vanished at the close of each passing day. Little did the human world know or, even suspect that the shadows were once a mighty and proud race. Who for centuries had waged a ruthless and bitter war against mankind, only to suffer a final and fatal defeat. Their lasting punishment, to be tied to the foot of man for all eternity. At least, that was the plan, until by some freak of fortune, some dark and sinister circumstance.

One shadow managed to set himself free from these shackles and escape his captor. In doing so he embarked on liberating other shadows. His aim was to establish an underworld, where they could re-build their lives, re-train their armies and return to power on earth. 

The shadow leader, one 'Solus Spya', resembled all the bad things from the negative of an old black and white photograph, had learnt that the bond between human and shadow was only sufficiently weakened by the humans death. Hence, this evil creature spent most of his time lurking in graveyards and taking joy from humans despair.

The only human defense to the potential onslaught was an innocent young girl who led a fairly ordinary life. Like all teenagers, she was desperate to be accepted by her peers and longed to be the centre of attention by all who knew her. Unwittingly, she and her best friend stumbled across the shadows and what started off as a young girl's prank almost culminated in catastrophe for her and all the people she cared for. In her battle with the shadows she embarks on a journey of self-learning and self-acceptance. She faces her greatest fears and insecurities, in doing so, she is able to confront the might of the shadows and establish her own true identity. During the adventure she learns what true friendship means. Her best friend joins her in the quest as they face real and desperate challenges that push them to their limits, but ultimately they come through it, stronger than before.

In the adventure, she is assisted by mans greatest and oldest ally, the unicorn. A mighty proud beast that devoted its life and very being to protect mankind. He has the power to overcome the shadow's only weakness, which is exposure to bright light. The unicorn can use his great powers, thundering speed and alicorn to generate blinding and lethal light, which is the only way to defeat them. During the adventure the girl and the unicorn become good friends. A friendship that will last their complete lifetimes. In doing so, she resurrects his faith in man and rekindles his passion and love for them.

The heroine also has to call on the help of a fallen angel, whose name is Ark. Ark has some rather serious attitude problems, when she is good she is beauty and loyalty personified. However, she feeds off fear, weakness and above all evil, using it to become a sinister deadly creature that will devour anything in its path. The young girl has to win over Ark or, face oblivion, as such the two face an uneasy partnership. 

The girl's efforts are almost thwarted by her other nemesis, her history teacher 'Mr. Jones'. He is desperate to make his mark in the academic world and suspects that his pupil has stumbled across something incredible, which is of immense importance. He is motivated by greed and vanity, becoming obsessive about uncovering the truth to the world. During the story they try to out wit each other, sometimes with humorous consequences.

Friendship, battles, thunderous noises, blinding lights, defeat and victory are the key foundations to the book. It's a journey that one small person is prepared to take, whilst the rest of the world sleeps in blissful ignorance. 

The end of the book is just the beginning.

Teen Unicorn Book Feature - Beyond the Khrysalis by Naya H Jones

Sybrina's Unicorn Book Pick

For Teen, YA and Older Readers

 Today's Unicorn Book Feature is



Beyond The Krysalis

 By Naya H. Jones


"Wing my spirit with the feathers of a golden bird that I may soar and flee this broken world,” Princess Ravin whispered to night sky. She sat on her bed watching the golden nightingale flying frantically around its gilded cage.

“I’m stuck in a prison just like you except my cage is a crystal palace.” She curled into a ball on her towering bed stacked high with feather mattresses soaring up, up, up to the crystal palace’s ceiling....
Beyond the Khrysalis is an enchanting tale of Princess Ravin’s magical journey into the dark world of Khrysalis Fiber. Is it the wonders of this mysterious new world beckoning to her, or something truly evil calling her to her death? Ravin follows ancient paths, battling dragons, sharing magic with the fairies of Will-O-Myst, uniting with a crystal unicorn, Quazar, and her pegasus mate, Jaguar. Ravin's "fantastical" journey results in an end that truly becomes her magical beginning.

Journey To Osm - The Blue Unicorn's Tale

 Reader Review




By laurathomas61

Having such a love for the wonder of unicorns it was an easy choice to read this book. Magical unicorns with metal horns. All shapes and sizes. And one unicorn, Blue, who has no magic, but is supposed to be the savior for the tribe. Sounds like a grand adventure to me.And it was. Filled with lots of beautiful illustrations portraying many of the fantastical beings that roam these lands, it kept me enthralled. However, it had some dark moments that caught me by surprise. Going in thinking this was for younger readers, some scenes of death and danger now have me thinking this would better fit older teens and young adults.This well written fantasy has plenty of intriguing characters and plenty of action, with some doses of peril that will keep you reading and crossing your fingers for a happy ending. I sure enjoyed it and would love to read more about Blue, his friends, and this magical world.

Journey To Osm - The Blue Unicorn's Tale

 Reader Review




Sherry Fundin


There’s no place like home…OSM means awesome.

He is supposed to be their savior. But how can that be possible? He has no magic.

He feels an outsider, he just doesn’t fit in. Does anyone feel a touch of Rudolph in this?

The fun, colorful, imaginative illustrations are wonderful, filled with fantastical creatures, both good and bad.

Each creature is unique, individual, just like in real life.

Is there such a thing as a fish unicorn? If so, imagine the possibilities.

Set your imagination free.

The Blue Unicorn…reads like old time fairy tales…where life and death choices are made…And …maybe, you will learn why you never see a unicorn.

This magical fantasy filled with fun and humor, sadness and happiness, and lessons learned. We are not alone.

Escape

The War Unicorn Chronicles Book 2

 By S. L. Carlson

15-year-old Ricky discovers from his companion, Thram, the Spikonians are invading their homeland. Transforming with the war unicorn, Neighbor, into one warrior-unicorn-man, they complete the two-week journey to the capital in just two days, only to discover it in ruins. Searching the rubble of his family’s home, Ricky reads part of a magic spell. As he speaks, the boy standing nearby sprouts a wing and collapses. Furious with Aldric’s irresponsible use of magic, Neighbor leaves him.

Separated from the unicorn for the first time in over a year, Unicorn Keeper Ricky, refocuses and determines to set his family free, as well as all the captured citizens. However, Ricky’s plans change to urgency when he discovers the witch-magician Alyse seeks to kill his mother. He is only able to rescue a few family members, including his Spikonian brother-in-law, Drake. The clash between Ricky and Drake becomes more than about race, providing for emotionally packed dialogue with actions of love and hate, of family and singleness, of aloneness and belonging.

The war unicorn rejoins them to add her counsel. Ricky and Neighbor mend their fragile relationship as they journey through wilderness encounters with nature and mythical creatures.

In the meantime, castle-raised Lord Thram was given the responsibility of returning and protecting the dragon-raised Princess Celeste, missing for fourteen years. The feral princess is anything but civilized. But when the king’s consort, Lady Katrina, denies Thram palace entrance, he slips into his old habit of sneaking in the shadows where he discovers plots and deceptions.

Can Ricky and Thram complete their goals to once more unite in fighting evil?

Goddess Fish Promotions - Paragon by Shauna Alderson



This post is part of a virtual book tour organized by Goddess Fish Promotions. Shauna Alderson will be awarding a $20 Amazon or B/N GC to a randomly drawn winner via rafflecopter during the tour. Click on the tour banner to see the other stopson the tour.



Now that high school is over, Randi just wants to live her quiet life in her little town, but it doesn’t feel right without her friends there. Ever the daredevils, they’ve gone to seek adventure in the capital city of Grandin, and Randi can’t help but feel left behind. Not to mention she definitely can’t stop thinking about that kiss she and Eddy shared before he left.



When Randi discovers a mysterious mark on her skin that matches an illustration in “A Handbook on Paragonhood”, she’s thrown into a world of powerful gods and ancient magic that she thought only existed in the myths. She’ll have to step out of her comfort zone—and into the dangerous streets of Grandin—to find a way to protect herself and the people she loves.



Randi’s not the only one with a secret, though, and she finds herself questioning who she can trust. Randi will have to wrestle with what it means to be a Paragon and how far she’s willing to go to do what’s right.



With the fate of the world on the line, can she live up to being one of the chosen?


Read an Excerpt


Louis comes into view as I round the corner of the restaurant into the simple, well-kept yard. He's facing the other way, holding a wooden staff, not even wearing a coat. I'm about to call out and let him know I'm there, but before I can, he spins in a circle, extending the stick as gracefully as if it were a part of his arm. His movements are soft and flowing as he twists around a large cobbled circle in the middle of the yard. It looks like a gentle dance, but it's evident from the way he maneuvers the stick and guards his torso that it's also a fight.



Louis comes back to a neutral position and bows to an invisible adversary before him. “That was the swan,” he says, making me jump. “And this is the dragon.”



He steps aggressively, each strike hard and fierce. He jabs the staff out before him and twirls, nearly horizontal with it. A few stances later, he accidentally whacks himself in the shoulder with the practice weapon.



He bursts out laughing. “It’s not my best form.” He approaches me while massaging his shoulder. “Good thing you’re not my grandma, or you’d make me practice until I got it right.”



“I like the swan better, anyway.”



“Me too.” He blinks as a raindrop falls on his cheek. We both turn to the sky as thunder rumbles in the distance. “Looks like it’ll be a downpour.”



About the AuthorShauna Alderson began writing teen fantasy even before she was a teen. After she “grew up", she completed creative writing courses (and a BA in Development Studies) at the University of Calgary. When not reading or writing, she can usually be found teaching ESL, composing on the piano, creating art, or volunteering abroad. She also enjoys dessert, Studio Ghibli films, and being the silliest person she knows.
