I always knew unicorns could be deadly! Love the book so far.
The unicorn chronicles are good too.... but not the same.

LOVED this book! Not only is it a fun and engaging story with fantastic, flawed, realistic characters (and more than one or two of those), but the book tackles some important and sensitive issues (especially for young women) regarding identity and expression. I highly recommend this book, even if you aren't a young adult, even if you dislike fantasy, even if you think unicorns are stupid. In fact, I can't wait to read everything else this author has ever written!

This book was amazing!!!!!!
Strong, interesting female characters. Puts unicorns in a whole new perspective. Will definitely read Ascendant.

This is a compelling and well-written story with a strong and likable heroine, but it's essentially Buffy the Vampire Slayer with unicorns. Vastly better than a lot of the juvenile fluff out there, but not revolutionary.

Rampant is an extraordinary read. I always thought that unicorns would be cute and fluffy, but now they have become killers.....

Reading Ascendant right now....

What was that bump sticking through my shirt? It looked like an alicorn. How strange. -Astrid
