Description

In the center of Luster stands an enormous tree called Axis Mundi, the heart of the world. But now that tree is wounded, pierced by magic. Through that wound marches an army of Hunters, led by the sinister and vengeful Beloved . . . an army determined to destroy each and every unicorn.

As the unicorns gather to defend their lives, the human girl, Cara, is sent on a mission to meet a ferocious and mysterious dragon. Faced with extreme peril, Cara must make a desperate decision that will change her life forever.

With a deft hand and keen imagination, master storyteller Bruce Coville brings this riveting epic to a rousing conclusion as the deepest secrets of Luster are finally and satisfyingly unveiled.

Here’s what the reviewers had to say:

“This final volume satisfyingly concludes an exciting and intricately plotted series that began with Into the Land of Unicorns (Scholastic) 16 years ago. In the parallel world of Luster, inhabited by a large cast of familiar creatures such as unicorns and dragons, along with unfamiliar beings such as Squijum, a squirrel/monkeylike creature, and Dimblethum, a half human, half bearlike creature, Coville creates an epic story of the fight for good versus evil …  Despite this volume’s length, the pace is brisk, with one cliff-hanging adventure following another right up to the climactic conclusion. … Fans of the series will be delighted.” – School Library Journal

“[Readers] will be swept along to the grand, hard-fought resolution.” –Kirkus
