about this item
INTO THE LAND OF THE UNICORNSON A WINTRY NIGHT Cara and her grandmother are pursued into St. Christopher’s church by an unknown man. Clutching her grandmother’s mysterious amulet, and following the old woman’s strange instructions, Cara escapes into Luster, the Land of the Unicorns. When a goblin-like monster called a delver tries to steal the amulet, Cara is rescued by “the Dimblethum,” a huge, shambling man-beast.
Soon the two friends are joined by a rebellious young unicorn named Lightfoot, and a ridiculous creature known only as “the Squijum.” With her new friends, Cara begins a dangerous journey across Luster to deliver a message from her grandmother to the Queen of the Unicorns. Though the little band will face many perils along the way, the greatest danger of all is to Cara’s heart. For to survive this trip, the girl must come face-to-face with both her greatest hope, and her greatest fear.
SONG OF THE WANDERERLuster, the world where the unicorns fled to escape the Hunters who have sworn to wipe them out, has dangers of its own—as Cara discovers when she attempts to cross that world in a desperate effort to rescue her grandmother.

And through it all threads the haunting melody of the “Song of the Wanderer,” heard in this recording for the first time. From the enchanting flute notes that introduce the story to its stunning conclusion, listeners will find themselves, like Cara, drawn heart and soul into the wonder of Luster.

As a result, the queen must send her granddaughter—the human girl Cara Dianna Hunter—to the Valley of the Centaurs, in quest of an ancient story that may hold the key to survival for all of Luster. At the same time, Cara’s father, Ian Hunter, searches for a way to enter the Rainbow Prison, in order to free Cara’s mother from the strange spell that holds her. As father and daughter travel their separate paths, each will discover unexpected friendships, face heart-stopping danger, and uncover puzzling new mysteries. But it is Cara who will face the hardest choice of all—a choice that may determine the fate of Luster, and the unicorns she has come to love.
THE LAST HUNTIn the center of Luster towers an enormous tree that is the Heart of the World. Now the tree is wounded, pierced by a tunnel that connects it to Earth. Through that tunnel strides Beloved, the ancient enemy of the unicorns, followed by an army of Hunters eager to destroy every last unicorn. At the center of this great struggle is the human girl, Cara Diana Hunter, who
