    An Old World Torn Asunder needs a Modern girl to save it.

    HoU is the story of a history of specifically named ladies and a debt of promises. HoU begins in the land of the Fabulous Beast. We come into a world that has been torn asunder when a rift in the fabric of the world, a portal left unfolded, let's in a diabolical hunter and a grand weaver. Here their intentions cross into a world filled with fantastical creatures and an agrarian society that recently has lived a simple midevil existence. Nothing will ever been the same again.
    A story develops of a weaver who wanted to change the rapid abuse of the world by the hands if the Hunter, the Leo, and his destruction of the fantasical beasts, and his tyrany as the King.
    A greatly removed ancestor's promise brings a unicorn into the modern age to bring home a young girl to the land of the Fantasical Beast. The unicorn is almost the last keeping the land alive and it comes to tell a young girl that she is the one who can change history, only she can keep a long ago promise to end the reign of the Leo, and keep a pure world for our great imagined creatures to live alongside humans in peace.
    With trees and tapestrys as gateways between the worlds and life threatening decisions, HoU has amazing characters and a thrilling plot that brigs a new voice out in the YA, that reads well for a variety of ages.
    I enjoyed the plot and the developments, and the backstory was intriguing and worked well blended into the present day plot that was happening.

    The Hunt of the Unicorn

    I was a little worried when I first started to read this because I had just read a book called Warped that sounded a lot like The Hunt of the Unicorn. I was a little worried they were going to be a lot alike but I actually liked this book better.

    Alice Elayne or AE (the initials that the weaver put on all this tapestries) was the name of all the girls born into the weavers family. Elayne is just a normal high school girl who doesn't believe in fairy tales or anything like that, and she doesn't believe in Unicorns. Her father is dieing of cancer and he decides its time to tell her about her heritage, and about the weavers and the Unicorn. To her it all sounds like a fairy tale, but she soon finds out its not a fairy tale at all.

    When she accidentally falls into a tapestry at a museum she falls through the doorway to Goloth, sort of a parallel world. In this world there is a evil king and Elayne finds out that her name is forbidden in the land of Goloth because of the famous tapestry that her ancestor weaved depicting a young woman killing the king. She is believed to be this prophesied girl.

    There is also this one Unicorn who is also in the prophesy and the king is always trying to kill it. This unicorn brought her ancestor, the weaver to his world a long time ago. He has healing powers and Elayne thinks that maybe he could help heal her father back home, if she can ever figure out how to get back home and away from the new young King.

    I liked Elayne, though sometimes I though she was a little weak. I can understand her attitude towards being in this new world, but sometimes it was like get over it. She turns out okay in the end once she gets the 'oh how do I get back home' out of her system.

    Over all I thought it was a fairly face paced story though there was a couple of times I thought it sort of dragged on, but then I am not one for a lot of details and descriptions. (I call it fillers and I tend to skip over it, then miss something important..LOL) I am not a huge fan of Unicorn book, but over all I enjoyed it. I would recommend it to someone who likes Unicorn books.
