I cannot even express how exited I am to start reading this book, especially since I didn’t even know it was a book. I grew up watching the movie The Last Unicorn and was absolutely enraptured by it. The Last Unicorn and The Little Mermaid define my childhood movie watching experience. I must have watched this movie at least 100 times as a kid both terrified and mesmerized by it. The image that still sticks in my mind to this day is of The Red Bull chasing down the unicorn. It was terrifying and exhilarating all at the same time. The red flames from the bull that filled the screen always kept me on the edge of my seat wondering if maybe this time the unicorn wouldn’t escape.
Now I won’t lie, my memory fails me on the major plots of the story only focusing on the parts that used to scare the bejesus out of me which is in part why I’m so excited to read the book. I want to remember the story. I want to be transported back into a storyline I loved so much. Plus the old VHS tape is so worn out it doesn’t play as well anymore.
Since I did love this movie so much as a kid I do have high expectations for this book. Fingers crossed it’s as good as I remember the movie being.
Here’s to some high fantasy and, for those of you who want to know the category for this book battle, a book centering around a non-human protagonist. Happy reading!
