"Hand to readers who love Narnia." —School Library Journal on The Unicorn Quest

* "Those who love Madeleine L'Engle's A Wrinkle in Time or . . . Neil Gaiman's Coraline, can't miss this debut." —Booklist, starred review, on The Unicorn Quest

The second book in an enchanting fantasy series The Unicorn Quest, about a real-world girl and her sister in a land full of magic and strange creatures.

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 has 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 stone. 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?

        November 15, 2018
        In a magical world threatened by darkness, two sisters continue their quest to restore peace in this second installment of Benko's debut series.On the Sorrowful Plains, Claire Martinson awoke the last unicorn in Arden from its 300-year imprisonment in stone. Although the unicorn's magic healed Claire's sister, Sophie, Arden remains plagued with danger. War threatens the four magical guilds whose powers dwindle year by year. The guilds struggle to protect their people from wraiths that haunt the night. Claire and Sophie carry with them a necklace that might be their only hope to bring back more unicorns, but they are surrounded by enemies and have no training to unlock the magic that could save Arden. Despite their newfound royal ancestry, both Claire and her seemingly confident sister battle their own secret insecurities, and the tension between them grows throughout the story. As Arden's unicorn legends resurface along the journey, Claire and Sophie discover repeating themes from the past to guide them forward. Plot twists and a cliffhanger ending offer an enticing incentive to continue the series.Picking up in the midst of danger that never withdraws, this continuation dives deeper into the mysterious legends that make Arden magical. (Fantasy. 8-12)
