I was obsessed with these books in elementary school. They're great for children, especially young girls, who like adventure and fantasy. Unfortunately, they're really short, just over 100 pages.For book swappers: Note that this is the second book in the series. I don't have the first. The cover is ever so slightly worn. There is a hot chocolate stain on the edges of the last 20 pages, but it doesn't extend onto the page beyond a millimeter and there is no warping from the moisture.
I'm reviewing this series as a whole.I originally read this series way back in 6th grade. I remember loving it, mostly because I loved both horses and fantasy. Going back as an adult, I see it's still good, but I also see some large issues that my younger self missed - or forgot.1) Lori. Lori is so effing annoying. Stanton kept teasing me with the possibility that she'd finally go away, only for her to find some way to stick around and complain. Or almost get everyone killed.2) The ending. Talk [...]
I have been looking in my usual stops for slightly used copies of this series and struggle. No wonder why. I will keep my copies as well. This is still a great adventure book and follows the feel of the first book. Characters are developing nicely.This could have been a novel. There were time I wished it had slowed down and more meat put into the story, but I understand the target reading audience and know that would not work.Recommend this to all young readers (even the boys).
Loved it as kid, and it'd be great to reread it if I could. Sunchaser is every child's dream - a strong, shiny unicorn with awesome powers. Chase and Arianna makes a great pair, and we're given more of a glimpse into the world of Balinor than the first book.What we see makes us want to know even more, and I couldn't wait to lay my hands on the third installment so that I could find out how the adventure continues.
Mary Stanton did an amazing job on Unicorns Of Balinor Sunchasers Quest. It was an amazing fiction story. I thought it was really entertaining. I liked that it kept putting in suspense and had me wanting more. One thing that i didn't like was the ending i felt it wasnt complete. Overall I would reccomend this book highly to others.
I just started this book. So far, I LOVE IT!!! <33
I'm really enjoying this little series.
Sunchaser has lost his horn but got it back and thought there was no more questsere was one more it was going home favorite part was the whole story or book.7yo Auryn
Quite a bit better than the first one.
A nice, light fantasy read!
***3.5 stars***World Building: B+Mythology: BPlot-Twists: BVillains: BGirl Power: B+Suspense: B+Feels: B+For you clean-readers: this book does NOT have mature content.
Series Notes: The books are easy reading and much easier understanding to beginning readers so they may be a much better choice for younger crowds for whom they are more directed to. Also the author Mary Stanton does have a beautiful way with words when she describes the Celestial Valley while her imagination has done a great job with the forming of her unicorns within the story. This book wasn't as repetitive and bland as the original book but I still cannot seem to get myself interested within [...]
The journey continues! The last book left off with Arianna, Chase, Lori, and Linc just arriving in Balinor, about to set off on a quest they don't even know they are destined for. This book is truly the beginning of Arianna's journey of self discovery. She is figuring out who she is and was before the "accident" and what her responsibilities are to the land of Balinor. I had forgotten that Dr. Bohnes shows up halfway through to deliver the ruby safely to our little crew (I even said out loud "we [...]
I received this series of books as a child through some program where they sent me one each month, and I remember enjoying them. I'm currently going through my bookshelves rereading books that I'm ready to pass on to new owners. The story isn't too original, a magic kingdom at war with a lost princess as the heroine, but there's nothing really wrong with it, especially since it is for children.The second book begins Ari, the heroin, and Lori, the most annoying brat I can imagine, time in Balinor [...]
Twenty one pages into reading this, and my brain’s already been broken. What did it? This did:When unicorns laugh (or, as Ari discovered later, sneeze, cough, hum, sing, or cry), they laugh through their horns.Wut. Seriously, what? They sneeze through their horns? Their horns are an amalgamation of respiratory organs, a larynx, and motherfucking tear ducts? I just… what?But ignoring the utter derpiness that creeps up every now and then… not a bad fantasy installment. Great for children who [...]
This one was really good, up until that last words that were said. I mean, we all hate that little brat who was dragged along with Ari, but come on, her sudden change in character was so obnoxious, I guess, that I didn't want to continue on to read the rest! That was three years ago. Maybe four. Anyway I had lost all interest completely, and I think I still have. Maybe when I have absolutely nothing else to read, I'll continue the story.
Read this when I was a child. Didn't really understand the story because I didn't read the first book so I stopped halfway. I could tell that it's a beautiful story but what could I do? None of my friends had the first book and I couldn't find it at any local bookstore. Anyway, I love the cover art! It looks vintage.
Read the first book years and years ago. I think it's wonderful for princess-obsessed girls to read things like this. Ari is an active character who isn't waiting around for a prince to save the day. Plus, unicorns.
Second book in the Unicorns of Balinor series. I would have loved these books when I was 7. As it is, I think book 2 is better than the first one. If I happen to come across any more of these I'll probably zip through them.
First large book I ever read!!
Biased because I read the series first as a 10-year-old. I was feeling nostalgic.
i have it sitting on my self- I JUST NEED TO READ IT!! :D
This kind of writing no longer appears to me. Ah well. I loved this series a long time ago but now I can barely finish the third book I have.
