Would you like to know how one enters the Land of the Unicorns? Simply hold a very special amulet containing the hair of a unicorn close to your chest while saying these words, "Luster bring me home." You must do this while jumping off the roof of a particular church at the exact time the bell strikes twelve. I should warn you, though, it's not all peaches and cream once you get there. In this story, a young girl named Cara does exactly this. Even though she has never seen a place more beautiful, she also begins facing horrific dangers because of the amulet she is wearing. Both man and beast want to destroy all unicorns and the key to doing that is the amulet. Cara receives help from some very unlikely friends such as a unicorn, Dimblethum, who is a cross between a bear and a man, and Squijum, who is a cross between a monkey and a squirrel. Will her new friends be able to help her on her quest to get the amulet to the Queen of Unicorns or will all unicorns be destroyed forever? Once you read this first book, I guarantee that you will be racing to read the other three books in the series.
