Editorial Reviews

The inaugural production of Bruce Coville's company, Full Cast Audio, demonstrates great care and attention. Production values are extremely high; for example, when Cara or one of the other characters thinks about something, their internal musings have a subtle, slightly underwater sound that differentiates them from regular speech. A full cast of talented voices bring to life Coville's fantasy, from the agitated, squirrelish Squijim to the low, rumbly Dimblethum and the aristrocratic Medafil. The queen of the unicorns has given Cara a dangerous quest. She must undertake a perilous journey across Luster, the world of the unicorns, and return to Earth in order to find her grandmother. This superb production will enthrall young listeners and their parents alike.

Publisher's Summary

Luster, the world where the unicorns fled to escape the Hunters who have sworn to wipe them out, has dangers of its own - as Cara discovers when she attempts to cross that world in a desperate effort to rescue her grandmother. Each stage of Cara's journey brings new peril, wondrous new characters, and new clues to the mystery of her grandmother's past. And through it all threads the haunting melody of the "Song of the Wanderer," heard on this recording for the first time.
From the enchanting flute notes that introduce the story to its stunning conclusion, listeners will find themselves, like Cara, drawn heart and soul into the wonder of Luster.

fun story, but second in series

I am a bit confused as to why this book is available as an audio book, but not the first in the series. If you have read the first, you will enjoy this one. However, I would not suggest buying it if you have not already read the first one.

Nostalgia

This was the first real book I read as a child. I greatly enjoyed listening to it now.
