Publisher Comments:

“This is a book that any Beagle fan must have, and will convert any newcomers to his magical works.” –The Orlando Sentinel

Arriving in the English countryside to live with her mother and new stepfather, Jenny has no interest in her new surroundings--until she encounters things on this ancient estate with ties to another world…one darker and older than anything she’s ever experienced. And meets a friend in greater pain than any she has ever known…

Tamsin died more than 300 years ago. As a ghost she has haunted the lonely estate without rest, trapped by a hidden trauma she can’t remember, and a powerful evil even the spirits of the night cannot name.

And before Jenny can help Tamsin find peace, she will have to delve deeper into the dark world of the night than any human has in hundreds of years, and face danger that will change her life forever…

Synopsis:

The 30th anniversary of a fantasy classic from Peter S. Beagle!

Synopsis:

The fantasy classic, now in beautiful new deluxe trade paperback edition.

From The Last Unicorn:

"The unicorn lived in a lilac wood, and she lived all alone. She was very old, though she did not know it, and she was no longer the careless color of sea foam, but rather the color of snow falling on a moonlit night. But her eyes were still clear and unwearied, and she still moved like a shadow on the sea..."

This classic fantasty is a tale of wonder, magic, love, and loss. It's a mystical and mesmerizing story that will haunt you long after the last page is read. Beautiful and tragic, hopeful and wistful, this book is a must-read for any lover of fantasy, and indeed sets the standard for the genre.

Whimsical. Lyrical. Poignant. The acclaimed and beloved novel by Peter S. Beagle, The Last Unicorn is a tale for any age about the wonders of magic, the power of love, and the tragedy of loss.

The unicorn, alone in her enchanted wood, discovers that she may be the last of her kind. Reluctant at first, she sets out on a journey to find her fellow unicorns, even if it means facing the terrifying anger of the Red Bull and malignant evil of the king who wields his power.

This is ten times better than the movie....if you liked that, then you will ADORE the book.

It is also a must-read for any fan of modern fantasy. It honestly does not get any better than this. The End. End of story, end of argument, and preferably the end of anything else that stands in your way of buying this book!
