Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "Claire Martinson and her sister Sophie have decided to stay in Arden--the magical land they discovered by climbing up a chimney in their great-aunt's manor. If what they've learned is true, the sisters are the last descendants of the royal family, and only a true heir of Arden--with magic in her blood--can awaken the unicorns. Since Sophie does not have magic, the land's last hope rests on Claire. The sisters journey to Stonehaven, a famed Gemmer school high in the mountains of Arden, so Claire can train in the magic of stones. As Claire struggles through classes, Sophie uncovers dangerous secrets about the people they thought they could trust. With Arden on the brink of crumbling, can Claire prove she is the prophesied heir and unlock the magic of the unicorns before it's too late?"--Provided by publisher.

    Claire and Sophie's traverse across the magical world of Arden continues in this exciting continuation of The Unicorn Quest series. Beginning right where book one left off, this sequel begins as the girls arrive at Stonehaven, the Gemmer (stone magic–wielders) guild's school-citadel, hoping to get help. Instead, however, they learn that war is more of a looming reality than they thought. In a search for answers—how to find the unicorn that saved Sophie, awaken more of them, and restore peace and magical prosperity to Arden—they encounter magical denizens old and new. What's more, this leaves readers with yet another tantalizing cliff-hanger that promises more thrilling adventures full of unicorns and alchemists and the most powerful magic of all: the bonds of friendship and sisterhood. With themes of patterns and history repeating itself, Benko's novel uses foreshadowing to set the stage for a huge reveal. Everything the sisters thought was impossible has been turned on its head, and they must rely on each other more than ever before. Hand this series to any fantasy adventure lover. Grades 4-7.
