about

Forget everything you ever knew about unicorns. The fluffy, sparkly, friendly “horses” so popular the world over don’t exist. Real unicorns are killers.

Beasts the size of elephants, with cloven hooves that shake the earth, hides impervious to bullets, and horns that contain a deadly poison, unicorns can outrun a sports car and smell a human from a mile away.

And they can only be killed by virgin warriors descended from Alexander the Great.

Sixteen-year-old Astrid Llewelyn has grown up with her mom Lilith’s tall tales about unicorns and their exalted family heritage, but figures her mom’s crazy. But the scary stories her mom told her about the monsters in her formative years left her with a firm phobia about unicorns, even the cutesy kind popular with young girls.

But when one of the monsters attacks her boyfriend in the woods—thereby ruining any chance of him taking her to prom—Astrid finds herself headed to Rome to train as a unicorn hunter.

“As swift and sure-footed as a killer unicorn, Rampant weaves a vibrant new mythology from venerable threads.”—Scott Westerfeld, bestselling author of the Uglies series

Diana Peterfreund is the author of many books for adults and children, including the critically acclaimedFor Darkness Shows the StarsandAcross a Star-Swept Sea.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Enjoyed It This books interesting take on the world of unicorns definitely had me intrigued, and kept me glued to it's pages throughout the whole novel. And the reason it kept me hook is because of the reason of how and why they hunt unicorns. So if the description has you curious, I bet you will like it. There is even a second book to continue the story, even though it didn't really need it. Pick it up if killer unicorns interests you.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Rampant Rampant has an interesting perception on unicorns,I rather enjoy it. Though at times I misunderstood descriptions due to certain words or other factors. I thought there was a lacking of mystery but maybe I was searching where there was none to be had. My only complaint is that I had difficulty picturing some scenes or people, however that may be my fault. This eBook is no easy read for people who've grown the habit of reading less diverse words. I recommend this eBook to those who enjoy a more mystical story, a dash of romance, family difficulties, gory fight scenes and powerful women. ¥¥ Thank you & Read on!! ¥¥
