About the Author

John Peel was born in 1954 in Nottingham, England. He attended Nottingham University and began his writing career as the editorial assistant for England's Apparel Production and Marketing. He later worked as a comic-strip writer for Marvel Comics in London, and was until recently the overseas television critic for England's Starburst magazine. Since immigrating to the U.S.A. in 1981, John Peel has worked as a contributing writer and editor for numerous media-based magazines. He now writes novels full-time from his home on Long Island, where he resides with his wife, Nan, their wirehair fox terrier, Dashiell, their orange, spotted tabby, Amika, and their miniature pinschers, Loki (aptly named after the Norse god of mischief and destruction), Bartleby, Shadow, Reggie, Tievel, Rocky, Anubis Princess and Lady Penelope.

He has just sold his first film script, Haunting Adrian, which is expected to commence shooting in the near future.

Very interesting book. We can see the ties each individual has with each individual unicorn. The story takes a very important and realistic twitch. Score, Helaine, and Pixel came back to help their animal friends as any caring human would've had. This shows us that even though their are magicians, they still have affections for other living things.

The Diadem series is the best series. I have all of them except #4. Whenever I look in a bookstore or on the internet the say it is out of print. But read these books. They are great.

I agreee with the High School student from Jupiter about getting a petition. I also think that they should reprint all of the Diadem books in the series. I can't get Book of Thunder, or Book of Nightmares, they are no longer in print. I found a used book of Book of Thunder for $129.97 and couldn't believe it. I started reading the series in 1997 and finally in 1998 I found some of the rest. By 1999, I could no longer find Book of Thunder, or Book of Nightmares. If anyone can tell me where to find either of these books I would really appreciate it. Thank You, Krystal, 14

I have, or had, all the books in this series up through 6.. I'm not sure if they go any farther.. but, nevertheless, I found them very fun, and wonderful, with mind tricks and so on in them, to delight anyone who enjoys puzzles or just a good story. I read this story a few times, but my copy of this particular book vanished. (dang it) so I guess I'll have to hunt down a new one. If the series was discontinued, I think it's a shame. It was absolutely wonderful!

I LOVE this series. It seems that you can get books 1,2,3,5,&6 easily, but 4 is out of print. I haven't read this one yet, but the others are intriguing and pull you into it. In the others, I felt like I was Renald. It's the only one I don't have yet, and I'm DYING to get it.

IF YOU LIKE TO READ FANTASY, YOU HAVE GOT, I REPEAT GOT TO READ THIS SERIES. MANY TWISTS AND TURNS. THE CHARACTERS ARE VERY DOWN TO EARTH AND REALISTIC. TOO BAD JOHN PEEL STOPPED WRITING THEM. I SHOULD START A PETITION.

This is a great book. When I read it, it made me want to read all the other books in this series. It is definently a page turner. When I finished it, it immediately became one of my favorite books.

To anyone who reads fantasy and fiction this is the book for you. The Book of Thunder is a wonderful fantasy that speaks of unicorns, dragons and evil wizards. In this book strenght may be a weakness.
