Overview

ONCE UPON A TIME, there was a brave and noble unicorn whose name was Shabaz. So wondrous was this beast, so loyal and devoted to his mistress, that he gave up his horn to a powerful magic to save her and her infant daughter from the evil and terrible Dark Lord, a necromancer. He travels through time with his precious cargo, and Birchspring, a warrior elf, to a place they believe will be safe.

TWO HUNDRED YEARS have passed. Tania, a servant lass, toils in the stable of the once mighty Castle Storm. An orphan, Tania has only her Grandfather Birchspring, and the tired old war-horse she tends. Her life is hard and dull with drudgery.

Until Tania hears that a new Dark Lord has risen, and threatens the centuries of peace the countryside has enjoyed. It is not all she learns. "Grandfather" Birchspring can no longer contain the secret of Tania’s heritage. The tired old war-horse can no longer maintain his masquerade. Together, the three cannot sit idly by while the evil force that destroyed Tania’s mother returns to finish what he once started. Ill equipped, with only great heart and noble purpose, they ride to war. But it is more than battle they encounter. And it is only the force of love that will endure. Love, and the unicorn’s final, precious gift...

    Let's all just give everyone a BIG hug and the world will be saved!

    I was poorly disappointed! It's just too perfect! A pretty girl suddenly discovers she's a princess, then gets adopted into the elven king's clan (which has never happened before), she joins the army disguised as a boy, becomes an expert swordsmen, she's a great archer, then suddenly she goes to live in the lap of luxery, saves the world, clears her father's name, brings her true love back to life, and turns her horse back into a unicorn. It's all just too perfect! I want to read a book where she has to actually WORK for her goals instead of just getting it in 5 sentances. If someone tried to use that character on the roleplay forum I use, they'd be chewed up and spit back out. Where I roleplay, we don't like perfect characters. I highly suggest that you DON'T read this book, unless you want to experiance the feeling like you're being force-fed sugar cookies.

    Appealing fantasy

    For seventeen years Tania and her grandfather the elf Birchspring lived at Castle Storm as servants to Lord and Lady Enguarand. The castle was once a mighty stronghold but during the last two centuries, the owners let it decay as the world has been at peace. Rumors sweep the land that a new Dark Lord has arisen in the North. Sir Rengal comes to Castle Storm to tell them that Lord Yalinka of Tattinggil is raising an army to defeat the necromancer; he wants one of Lord Irenstone¿s descendents to enlist for the cause........................... Tania learns that Birchspring is not her grandfather and that her father was the first Dark Lord who married her mother; her mom died to defeat him. Their horse Shabaz is a unicorn who gave up his horn to transport the elf and Tania two centuries into the future because that is what her mother wanted. Tania masquerades as a boy and enlists in the elfin and human army in the Golden Forest. It is only when she is injured and sent to Lord Yalinka to recover does she discover the truth about her parents and the new Dark Lord...................... This young adult fantasy will also appeal to all fans of Tolkien and Terry Brooks. Jennifer Macaire is a very visual writer who writes entire scenes that come alive in the mind¿s eye. THE SECRET OF SHABAZ has magic, romance and a bit of mystery imbued into the story line so it will appeal to a variety of readers. This reviewer would like to see more books starring Shabaz, a unicorn who is prepared to give up his life to keep the world safe........................ Harriet Klausner
