Publisher's Summary

Soar into a breathtaking world of heroes and unicorns as you’ve never seen them before in this fantastical middle grade debut perfect for fans of the Percy Jackson and Eragon series!

Skandar Smith has always yearned to leave the Mainland and escape to the secretive Island, where wild unicorns roam free. He’s spent years studying for his Hatchery exam, the annual test that selects a handful of Mainlander thirteen-year-olds to train to become unicorn riders. But on the day of Skandar’s exam, things go horribly wrong, and his hopes are shattered…until a mysterious figure knocks on his door at midnight, bearing a message: the Island is in peril and Skandar must answer its call.

Skandar is thrust into a world of epic sky battles, dangerous clashes with wild unicorns, and rumors of a shadowy villain amassing a unicorn army. And the closer Skandar grows to his newfound friends and community of riders, the harder it becomes to keep his secrets—especially when he discovers their lives may all be in graver danger than he ever imagined.

a really great read

I picked it up purely because the idea of bloodthirsty battle unicorns sounded cool. I stayed for the plot and the strong characters. The main character is a boy but he is surrounded by amazing females which I loved. The book also touches on mental health in such a subtle but amazing way. It feels like a mesh of Eragon and Harry Potter, some also say Percy Jackson's though I haven't read that yet so can't confirm. What I can confirm is this story is amazing and I can't wait for more!

It sounds strange, but it’s AMAZING!!!!

If I could convince every one I know to read this book I would. And I will. The premise sounds strange, bloodthirsty unicorns bonded to 13 year olds so the can share their magic. The book has major Eregon/Percy Jackson vibes with the addictive qualities of Harry Potter. The main character is a boy, but he is surrounded by these amazing and tough females, so it Carries a better vibe for female readers then the books I listed above. Truly, take a chance on this strange sounding book and let it become one of your new favorites. Like it is now for me.
