Editorial Reviews

This is book four of an enchanting series about unicorns, amulets, dragons, and other fantastic creatures, which began with Into the Land of the Unicorns. When the tree that shelters Luster and is also the heart of the world is hurt, the unicorns must fight for their lives. Bruce Coville is both author and main narrator, and he's perfect for the job. As always, the Full Cast family is splendid at enhancing this multilayered story with countless characters. Along with the ambiguities that accompany battles of good versus evil, there are quotes from Sun Tzu's Art of War and surprising humor. Since the story is lengthy and abounds with details, audio is the perfect format.

Surprising Conclusion

Would you listen to The Last Hunt again? Why?

Yes and No. Yes because I love this series and no because when you get into the "nineties chapters" it plays each chapter twice. You have to use the skip option to get to the next chapter.

What did you like best about this story?

This is not a short book. Let me just start by saying that it will take you a while to get through this book. What I liked about it though is that it didn't just give you a "The End" ending. Each of the characters were given their own chapters and this conclusion that some of us have been waiting years to read came to an epic conclusion that was well thought out and very well written by the author.

What does Bruce Coville bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Bruce Coville's audio books of The Unicorn Chronicles brings every character to life by giving them their own voice. Unlike a dramatized version, his unabridged versions actually follow along with the books while still having an entire cast re-in-acting the beautiful and wondrous world that is Luster, the land of the unicorns.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

There were some moments that gave me the jaw dropping feeling. Other times I laughed and I even cried at the end.

Any additional comments?

The only thing that I would change is the doubling of the nineties chapters. It gives the audio book 2 hours of extra reading that it really doesn't need. This should be changed and an updated version should be sent to everyone who has purchased and downloaded this audiobook.

Epic conclusion to this amazing series

Being able to complete one of my most beloved series by listening to a full-cast audiobook and narrated by Bruce Coville himself was an amazing experience. Bruce Coville, in addition to being a brilliant writer, is also an amazing narrator and the voices for this book were cast perfectly for each character. The full cast brings something extra to such an epic fantasy story.

Regarding the book itself - I read it back in 2010 when it originally was released, and loved it then. I began this series in elementary school and while it took many years to finally get the conclusion, I think that the books and world of Luster grew into something so epic that I am glad I was unable to read (and listen to) such a complex conclusion until my twenties when I could fully appreciate it.
