    Avalan is an amazing magic series about three girls who work together to find the true aura of magic. Each one is different, but special.Emily is loving and kind, while Adriana is Courageous and strong, while Kara is funny and popular. Each person is all different, but they work together to save the world from the dark forces emnating from the Shadowlands.

    I wish I liked Emily's books more. She seems to be the sanest member of the team, but her books have issues. It's odd because I connect most with Emily in a lot of ways and her story thus appeals more to me, since I am also a child of divorcees, although I never got to live with my parents while they were married to each other.A lot of this book made me ask "why is Emily such an idiot". I get that she's 12 or 13, but I find it hard to believe that someone that age with as much purported experience with animals as she has doesn't know what trauma is and what it can do to animals. Why is Lorelei reacting so horribly? Gee, it might be because something TRAUMATIZED her. Kind of like when abused animals shrink when people walk towards them because the animal is afraid of getting him. I also don't know what she thought to accomplish by lifting a bag of dog food in the air. Like... when it kept going did she not realize something was wrong? Why didn't someone familiar with animals not finish putting food in it, seal it and THEN put it away? I do appreciate the connection between Emily and the unicorn. I guess this foreshadows stuff in book 12, but anyway. Emily gets the best magical animal (not Ozzie, bleh). And that makes me happy.I also think that Ghyll is meant to be funny and some sort of parody of the "Frog Prince" story. But he's just creepy and irritating. No means no. End of story. Stop persisting in ignoring the woman you are talking to. I don't think that the story improved for his presence. If he was gone... we wouldn't have lost out on anything, really.Maybe what bothers me is the very shallow nature of the villains. They're evil because... just because? Are they all just sadists? What do they get out of doing all this? We never really learn the secret behind the Sorceress until books 6 and 12. Which is on purpose, obviously, but the one-off villains are kind of... boring. And lacking and suspense. I don't know. Otherwise it was kind of an unremarkable book in a lot of ways. Although it has some secrets if you've finished the series already, so it's worth a reread. BIG foreshadowing for the end of the series.

    And we're back to Emily!Whereas the last book took place in the magical world of Aldenmor, The Secret of the Unicorn brings us back to Ravenswood and the girls' life at home. I loved Adriane's adventure in the other world, so most of this book was not quite as exciting for me.Overall, it doesn't seem like that much happens until the last few chapters. Emily is searching for a creature in Ravenswood that seems to be wounded, but no one is sure if it's good or evil. This is where the creepiness factor comes in, and I was pleasantly surprised by this. It's nice to know that not all the creatures from the magical world are fairies and rainbow zebras; it makes things just a tad more believable.Anyway, this is a cute Emily story with a good message. There's also a nice bit of storyline with Emily's mother, which even I could relate to when I was younger. My only quip is that the book doesn't really advance the plot (though neither does book 5), but, again, it's a children's series, so if the whole point of the book is to get a meaningful life lesson across, then so be it. At least it's still entertaining.

    3.5 rating! Ooookay, so basically here's the lowdown. I loved it in the beginning. Despite the cover and it's somewhat girly appearance, it was quite dark. It intrigued me in ways the other three books hadn't. And that harpy-let me just say- gives me the creeps. It's freaky lookin'!! :o Now I did say at the beginning, meaning it started fading into the mystical magical stuff. I guess I'm not saying that's a bad thing, I just wish it hadn't. It was really quite boring after that. But hey, I read on (since I have nothing better to do with my life ^^ If I role-play with you don't strangle me, lol). But it really didn't seem dark after that. **spoiler alert** The only thing that I really found entertaining after that was the Ghyll being a spriggle instead of a flobbin. Let me tell ya, he looks better that way >< Oh and I love Zach (: Adriane if you don't take him I will, get on it ;p

    I am excited to read this book because I have read all the books in the series except for this one. So, I am almost positive that this book will be great, just as the other books were. I think some people would think the series was farfetched if they didn't read the whole series and actually understand the plot and meaning. Also, I think that they are definitely books that you can snuggle up with at night because they are not at all scary if you over the age of seven. I would recommend this book and the whole series to anyone. Commence...

    I couldn't keep reading after this book. It was bad. Really didn't like it too much. I'm not the kind of person whose really girly. I don't like reading about too girly stuff. I prefer things with demons like the mortal Instruments. Read those. They are amazing.Anyway, didn't like this book. Just no.

    What is the mood of what you are reading. Defend your claim. I believe that in the first half, the mood is sadness and fear because the creatures fear the new animal that has come into their world. Sadness because the unicorn has had her horn severed from her head.

    I did not like it. I sometimes feel that Emily is halfway to being a Mary Sue, I don't want that. I want the dark mage Emily, who killed Ozzie, who became a lot more interesting, I want the not perfect Emily. I felt like it was another Emily saves the day book.

    Harusnya cerita pertama yang melibatkan unicorn itu seru tapi mungkin pergulatan batin akibat sentuhan dengan unicorn dan diganggu harpy ... ya sudahlah.

    I read these when I was younger but I would still read them now. They have enough magic in them to entertain anybody.
