No Metal Means No Magic in the magical metal-horned unicorn tribe.
Can a unicorn with neither manage to save his tribe from extinction?
If you enjoyed reading Lord of the Rings, Alice In Wonderland or even Watership Downs, you might just love this purely fanciful unicorn fantasy about a tribe of unicorns stranded a universe away from their home world of Unimaise. It is full of magic, adventure and sciencey stuff plus a little bit of love and war.
Facing extinction, the Metal-Horned Unicorns of MarBryn are desperate for hope. Any hope. . .So when the Oracle reveals the prophecy promising just that, the remaining members of the tribe pin their future on the birth of a young foal. Hope becomes despair when the baby unicorn is born without metal. . .because without metal there is no magic. And without magic, this little blue newborn has no chance to defeat the evil sorcerer that has imprisoned all of MarBryn. Magh’s rule proves both harsh and brutal and by the time Blue comes of age there are only twelve metal-horns left in all of MarBryn. Eleven can claim some form of metal based magic. . .but one must get by on sheer grit, will, and the desire to avenge his parents untimely deaths. Like most of the metal-horns, Blue disregards the prophecy as nonsense, but driven by his insecurities, he covertly trains for a fight he’s ill-equipped to win.And then hope comes back around for Blue…and for the Metal Horn Unicorns of MarBryn. But can a unicorn with no metal … no magic … answer the call of fate?
Here’s what others have had to say about it”
“There are so many wonderful fantasy books to choose from that it’s really quite hard to sort the wheat from the chaff, but Sybrina Durant has created something truly original.”
“Durant brings wit and a compelling level of suspense that makes for an absorbing narrative, but it’s the depth she brings to her characters that makes Journey To Osm such a special read.”
“The first thing that I absolutely loved about this tale was the prophecy-gone-wrong concept at its very beginning. Throughout the book,author Sybrina Durant subverts the norms of this kind of high fantasy,breaking many tropes, but then bringing in others to surprise you at just the right moment.”
