Skandar and the Unicorn Thief
Summary: Unicorns don’t belong in fairy tales; they belong in nightmares. So begins Skandar and the Unicorn Thief. Soar into a world where unicorns are real -- and they’re deadly. They can only be tamed by the rider who hatches them. Thirteen-year-old Skandar Smith has only ever wanted to be a unicorn rider, and the time has finally come for him to take his Hatchery Exam, which will determine whether he is destined to hatch…

Skandar and the Unicorn Thief was an amazing, magical story, full of twists, turns and drama. I happily await the day when everyone else will jump into the wild and deadly world of Alicorns and my new favourite hero Skandar, and his brave friends!! With loveable, annoying and selfless characters, this story is a compelling read. Despite a few common mixed up terms, such as the alicorns and unicorns, it is a must read for young teens with an eye for adventure, fantasy and mystery. With a rating of 4.5 stars I can’t wait for the sequel.
