    The Unicorn Quest, by Kamilla Benko, is an enchanting fantasy adventure that harkens back to stories-of-old.It is the tale of two sisters, Claire & Sophie, who find an entryway into the magical land of Arden in their new home, Windermere Manor.

    When Sophie disappears, Claire must journey across Arden on a quest to find her sister. Of course, there will be challenges; Arden is a land in trouble. Its unicorns have disappeared and its four guilds are not getting along. Claire will need to use her brain, skills and of course, magic - to succeed. During the adventure, she discovers new things about herself, her sister and the world of Arden and its unicorns.

    A story that is packed full of magic, adventure and sisterhood - The Unicorn Quest is an enchanting read for middle-schoolers and their families. A portal story that will indeed transport readers to another world, who wouldn't want to go on an adventure that includes magical powers, enchanted forests and unicorns? This is a book that will no doubt find its way onto the favorite shelf of many young readers, as well as some older readers (like myself) who (thanks to stories like these) remain young-at-heart.

    I loved this story! Benko has created a rich and magical world called Arden where all the unicorns have disappeared. Two sisters, Claire and Sophie, stumble upon Arden after moving into the mysterious Windemere Manor with their parents, but all is not well in the magical realm. The four guilds of magic don't trust one another, and it doesn't feel safe. After Sophie suddenly disappears, Claire musters the courage to return to Arden to find her. Along the way, she learns secrets about the unicorns

Along the way, she learns secrets about the unicorns, about her sister, and about herself.

    Adventure, magic, sisters, and unicorns, it's perfect for kids and families.

    Utterly delightful! Taps into the wonderful childhood fantasy of finding a secret door to another world. And what an unusual world! A world that is full of magic, but new and very well thought-out magic. Benko's world building is excellent, as is her portrayal of the two sisters, and their relationship.

  • Amy Martin

    Such a fun adventure in a magical world filled with surprising twists. And UNICORNS!

    This was okay but not nearly as good as it could have been. I love sister books but the sisters are barely together in this one. The action is good but there is so much time between exciting scenes that it just gets really slow and boring in the middle. I admit that I skimmed some of the travel parts. This is definitely one of those MG books that will appeal more to the younger crowd but not necessarily transfer to older groups. Especially because there are a lot of very convenient fixes that ha

    This was okay but not nearly as good as it could have been. I love sister books but the sisters are barely together in this one. The action is good but there is so much time between exciting scenes that it just gets really slow and boring in the middle. I admit that I skimmed some of the travel parts. This is definitely one of those MG books that will appeal more to the younger crowd but not necessarily transfer to older groups. Especially because there are a lot of very convenient fixes that had me rolling my eyes but younger kids probably won't pick up on that sort of thing. It follows a very set pattern of: kids travel to a place and get help and info from someone, kids travel to the next place and get help and info from someone, etc. until the end when some exciting stuff happens. My nine year old would probably like this but my twelve year old would be bored. And that's fine, it's great to have books geared toward certain ages. But it just means the audience for this one will be very narrow. I wish I had liked it more because the cover and synopsis is so cute but it fell flat for me and probably could have benefited from being just a little bit shorter.

    A lovely, tender middle grade by the fabulous Kamilla Benko. I'm a sucker for sibling stories, and the sister relationship here is the best kind of painful heartbreak. Highly recommend for fans of portal fantasy. This is the kind of transportive, magical read that turns readers into writers.

    Sadly, this is a DNF for me.

    This book started out pretty well. I thought it was interesting, and I was intrigued by Windermere Manor. I also liked the two sisters and thought this might end up being an exciting story about two sisters caught between two worlds but, sadly, it wasn't.

    And as soon as Claire follows her sister into Arden, I started to lose interest. To the point where I just couldn't keep going. Mainly because I didn't particularly like the characters living in Arden. O.o

    So, 80 page

    Oh well.
