Science fiction, fantasy, and romance novel all at the same time
By LitPick Student Book Reviews
Blue is not an ordinary metal-horned unicorn. In fact, Blue is too ordinary to be a metal-horned unicorn. His horn is not even metal. Metal-horned unicorns have magic, charm, and beauty. Blue has none of those attributes. Blue, however, is more important than he realizes.At Blue’s birth, an oracle predicted greatness. The whole clan was disappointed when they saw Blue, an ordinary unicorn with no powers. After his mother’s death, Blue became cut off from much of the clan, except from his mate, Ghel.Still, Blue feels that there is something out there bigger than him and his clan that he is a part of. As the evil wizard, Magh, the man who killed Blue’s mother, attempts to slaughter all of the unicorns, Blue must set off on an epic quest to save his mate, clan, and his own life by finding someone he doesn’t know to help him find his true home, somewhere he’s never been. To do this, Blue must discover what lies beneath the seemingly monotonous life he has led for the past decade and find the truth. He must find what is buried deep inside his heart: his true destiny.Opinion:Reading The Blue Unicorn’s Journey to Osm was like reading a science fiction, fantasy, and romance novel all at the same time. For one, Blue and the rest of the unicorns are trying to return to their home planet by finding a spaceship and a unicorn to pilot it. This is very much a fantasy book, too. Because the main characters are unicorns, there’s magic everywhere, and there are other mythical animals that are only in dreams.In this book, unicorns also have mates, like Blue and Ghel. These mates play very important roles in the story, and this book shows that true love saves lives. This is one of the strangest books I have read, but I didn’t dislike it at all. In fact, I enjoyed reading about the strange characters, such as the sassy, stylish unicorn, about the NUMEN spirit and how the unicorns must work together to return home.There were parts in the book where the author glossed over details so quickly that I missed parts and didn’t understand what was happening for a time, but eventually, I figured it out and went back to enjoying this light, carefree book.This is a very good read for someone who just wants to sit back and enjoy a fun story.Reviewed by a LitPick student book reviewer Age 13
