4.0 out of 5 stars An underrated series Sept. 29 2005
By J. Lawrence - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I read the 'Secret of the Unicorn Queen' many years ago when they were first released, I adored them then and I'm glad to see that things that I loved then are still present now.

The series follows a young teenage girl name Sheila who has a pretty normal life, the only thing out of the ordinary is her relationship with Dr. Rite an eccentric scientist.

When a accident happens involving his affectionate cat and a untested invention Sheila finds herself in the world of Arren, where unicorns are real, magic exists. She meets a group of women determined to free the land from a tyrant. Sheila joins them and can't help but get caught up in the fight.

While the book doesn't break any barriers and doesn't bring anything new to the genre it's still a solidly written story with likable characters, and engaging plot and even a few laughs.

Though intended for younger readers I think this series has appeal for older ones as well and not just as nostalgia.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's about time!! Aug. 18 2004

I fell in love with this series after only being able to get my hands on book #4, and that was over 15 years ago!! I'm SO GLAD they decided to reprint the first two books in the series so I now know how Sheila's adventures began -- even as an adult I am enjoying reading these books! I hope the whole series is reprinted -- and very soon!! :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Fun Dec 18 2004
By Maigray - Published on
A solidly written, nicely plotted, well told series, with engaging characters, an disingenuous heroine and the standard elements of romance, adventure, mystery and excitement. The real hook is the main character, Sheila, portrayed as an ordinary girl who gets sucked into an alternate dimension of magic, unicorns, sorcerers and righteous, sword wielding women rebels. What young girl does not find this a delicious tale? A plain old fun read, addictive and cheesy, but better written than many and with some very good interpersonal development between characters.

5.0 out of 5 stars its got magic, spunk and a bit of romance Oct. 1 2004
By Indi Girl - Published on
I'm buying this for my sister for her 24th birthday! When we were young we read this series, I used to have to order it in from my local bookstore as no one else knew of it then. She is going to be so thrilled, we have read and re read the series, dosn't matter your age - what modern day girl dosn't want to ride a unicorn, weild a sword, practise magic and maybe kiss a warrior!
5.0 out of 5 stars Beloved fantasy stories Jan. 12 2007

I first read these books as a 7-year-old second grader. I still have the entire series lying around somewhere. Reading them as a child, I was absolutely enchanted. I re-read them as an adult, and they are still captivating.

These stories are absolutely excellent for young readers, particularly young girls, who want a great role model. Sheila is courageous, strong, and innovative; I love her creative mind. (Wait until you see how she fends off the first perceived enemies in the "other world"!)

Whether you're a parent looking for something to read to/with a child, or an adult fantasy lover, you will enjoy these tales. You can probably find the original six novels for sale used, too. (I was always hoping they would come out with more :)
