I am partial to this series because Phèdre is a different spelling of Phaedra. I mean, really, how often am I going to find my name used in a novel? Beyond that, I adore Carey's writing. She is able to craft a tale that is both intricate and intrigui...more

Where have you been?" she cried. "Damn you, where have you been?" She took a few steps toward Schmendrick, but she was looking beyond him, at the unicorn.

When she tried to get by, the magician stood in her way. "You don't talk like that," he told her, still uncertain that Molly had recognized the unicorn. "Don't you know how to behave, woman? You don't curtsy, either."

But Molly pushed him aside and went up to the unicorn, scolding her as though she were a strayed milk cow. "Where have you been?" Before the whiteness and the shining horn, Molly shrank to a shrilling beetle, but this time it was the unicorn's old dark eyes that looked down.

"I am here now," she said at last.

Molly laughed with her lips flat. "And what good is it to me that you're here now? Where where you twenty years ago, ten years ago? How dare you, how dare you come to me now, when I am this?" With a flap of her hand she summed herself up: barren face, desert eyes, and yellowing heart. "I wish you had never come. Why di...more

Ok, this one did me in. As Dean said "what's dead should stay dead". In Phaedra's book that goes double for the undead. I'm disgusted and fed up with Merit, I'm tired of all these characters being one dimensional and the crappy foreshadowing. I'm thr...more

I have a hard time liking or respecting a character who loves books and is upset that they didn't make her a vampire librarian and then she dog ears a book page. Um, no. Also, this felt like one of those mystery ovens where your supposed to guess who...more

I didn't love it, I didn't hate it, I just kind of liked it. I had hoped for some more character development but mainly it was all foreshadowing. Clearly, I'm going to keep reading these.... they're a quick and easy read, just perfect for grey days w...more

With a flap of her hand she summed herself up: barren face, desert eyes, and yellowing heart. "I wish you had never come. Why did you come now?" The tears began to slide down the sides of her nose.

The unicorn made no reply, and Schmendrick said, "She is the last. She is the last unicorn in the world."

"She would be." Molly sniffed. "It would be the last unicorn in the world to come to Molly Grue." She reached up then to lay her hand on the unicorn's cheek; but both of them flinched a little, and the touch came to rest on on the swift, shivering place under the jaw. Molly said, "It's all right. I forgive you.”
