I just finished reading The Shadow of the Unicorn. What a story teller Suzanne de Montigny is. She combined unicorns with dinosaurs and spun a tail of magic that kept me turning the pages, not to mention throwing in an evil that came in the form of a human!
What an enjoyable sto ...more

The Shadow of the Unicorn: The Legacy was perhaps one of the oddest books I have read in quite sometime. Odd because the two creatures that were found in the book were two that I would have never expected to see grace one book at the same time.
Suzanne de Montigny's The Legacy surprised me in so many ways. When I started reading it, there were a few things I was unprepared for, like, the presence of dinosaurs and a certain meteorite cras ...more

It is always good to see the world from a different perspective, and Suzanne shows the greed of humans through the dinosaurs and unicorns' eyes.
As mentioned by others, Darius teaching Azaria to become invisible is delightful, and kids may even try this themselves!

It was a little hard to get into this book, but once I did I enjoyed it. It is a fast paced novel after the beginning and it was very descriptive, which I loved! There is a great message in this book, I won’t spoil it…you’re gonna have to read it to get the message!
Yes, there are humans in this book. They are the villains of the story. Greedy beasts.
I think both boys and girls will love this story. Very quick paced and easy to read. A delightful story, and I look forward to more from this author.

This is a charming story starting in prehistoric times, when dinosaurs and unicorns roamed the earth. But the fireball, or asteroid, creates catastrophic changes, and the dinosaurs die out, leaving the unicorns struggling to survive – and then the two-legged animals arrive.
There is a considerable amount of humans-ruining-paradise in this book, although it turns out to be mainly one human as the ringleader. The tale is well told, but as ...more
I loved the interaction between the young unicorns, Azaria and Gaelan, and their dinosaur friend, Darius. The friendships shown were so realistic and fun to see playing out on the page.
Through her characters Ms. de Montigny teaches us many lessons. One that stuck with me was how when mi ...more

Suzanne de Montigny has created a magical tale of unicorns and dinosaurs, who live in two valleys, and human beings, who settle near the unicorns.
The opening paragraphs drew me into the novel when Suzanne introduces father and son, Polaris, The Great Stallion, and Azaria. I admired the unicorns, Polaris and Azaria, wanted to know more about them and enter their spell-binding world,
The Legacy begins when a dinosaur spooked the mares and Saul, a dinosaur, sent an urgent message for the three herds ...more
