The good side: I really did love this series. The story line was interesting, the characters well-thought-up, and I did love it. Bad side: The Celestial things in it really did ruin it. I read the first eight in the series, but then stopped even though I wanted to find out how Arianna finds her parents, but I just got this horribly uneasy feeling when I read the Celestial parts.

I have read all except the last 3 and I think this was the best. It begins in a way to make you clueless and you begin to learn everything through Ari's mind. This one was very good!!!

I bought these books because I thought they sounded really good. Unfortunately the first one wasn't that great. I mean don't get me wrong, i did like the book, it's just that I thought there would be more fantasy to them. But other than that, the book was pretty good and I'm still going to read the others!

I am a 14 year old and I love reading the series over and over again. I have only read the first 5 but I look forward to reading the rest... All ages will enjoy this book.

This was the most OUTSTANDING book I have EVER read!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! As soon as I picked up the book, I never wanted to let go. I recommend this book to everyone because its adventures, has a little action, and builds up a lot of suspense.

Be wary that when you buy this book you'll be buying 7 other books as well. The story starts in book 1 and doesn't end until book 8.

Oh these series are definitely a 5 star-er! I have read all 8, from cover to cover at least 5 times. The author did a great job in depicting the characters, and this one is definitely worth read!

My daughter happens to love Unicorns, which is what prompted me to purchase the first book(as a Christmas present). We would read every night before bedtime(at least one chapter). After reading The Road to Balinor, we were all hooked! The kids & I went to the bookstore and purchased the rest of the series! We are now looking forward to book 9(or Series #2!) Hope it's soon!

Sup! I aint really into fairy tales but this was an awesome book. I couldn't wait to turn the page. It is about this girl who was in an accident on her horse. She is from an other world with unicorns and fairy tales. Well she can only remenber her horse which is a unicorn. Then she passes throught the gap to her own world and is trying to remember her past. Her and her horse are trying to find peace there. that is all I am going to tell. Love, ~*~Me~*~

Dear Unicorns of Balinor Readers, This is the best Fantasy book besides Harry Potter. This book is full of magic and mystery. It is the most enchanting book I have ever read. Once you start to read you can't put the book down for anything.

this book starts out boring but gets interesting. it's about a girl named arinna who has gotten injured and has lost her memory. All she knows is that she has a horse named chase but really shes a princess sent over the gap to get away from the evil shifter
