An enchanting, exciting fantasy about a real-world girl searching for her sister in a land full of magic and strange creatures, blending the timeless feel of A Wrinkle in Time with Frozen’s powerful themes of identity, enchantment, and sisterhood.

Claire Martinson still worries about her older sister Sophie, who battled a mysterious illness last year. But things are back to normal as they move into Windermere Manor . . . until the sisters climb a strange ladder in a fireplace and enter the magical land of Arden.

There, they find a world in turmoil. The four guilds of magic no longer trust each other, the beloved unicorns have disappeared, and terrible wraiths roam freely. Scared, the girls return home. But when Sophie vanishes in the night, it will take all of Claire's courage to climb back up the ladder, find her sister, and uncover the unicorns' greatest secret.

    I really enjoyed this book because it is about unicorns and is around my reading level, so I was allowed to read it in school. I usually can't find any unicorn books at my reading level, so I think this book was fun to read and unique at the same time.

      This was a good book but it is not meant for little kids. There are monsters in the book and they talk about them being all scary. It is about sisters Sophie and Clare going to a different world. I wouldn't recommend this book.

        I liked the idea of this book but when we read it, it was scary. I was excited to read about unicorns but there are also monsters in the book. I recommend this book for older kids. I will try it again when I am older.

          The Unicorn Quest is a good boo that I read. And the thing is that I really like the beginning because i like the way it starts with a poem and a great start to the story.

            This book is now probably one of my favorite books. It was full of surprises! I got a little mad in some parts, but that's to be expected. I think it is awesome! I would really recommend this for fantasy readers.

              Claire Martinson has always wanted to stay inside the lines, while her sister, Sophie, has been the adventurous one. But when they find a ladder in the fireplace of their great-aunt's mansion and Sophie leaves for the world they find inside it, Claire has to risk everything to save her sister - and the magical world of Arden. I LOVED this book. From the storyline to the characters to the magic, it is a five star book on every page. I would recommend it to girls ages 7-15 who like magic and fantasy.

                I love anything about unicorns. I was interested in reading the Unicorn Quest and it was a good book. I like the adventure and trying to find her sister.

                  This book is about two sisters who move into Windermere Manor after the oldest recovers from a mysterious illness. They discover a magical land full of unicorns and other mystical creatures, but this world is in deep trouble because the unicorns are disappearing! When the oldest sister vanishes in the middle of the next night, the youngest must brave this scary, magical land and find the unicorns and her sister. This book put a smile on my face and I think everyone should read it!

                    The Unicorn Quest involves journeying into the forest on a Quest to find a Unicorn. Out of all the creatures in the world’s deepest forests and jungles, the unicorns are among the most noble and beautiful. This book was really great however, it was not one of my favorite books.
