Tween Unicorn Book Feature – Courageous The Unicorn by Devyn Collie
‘He didn’t even recognize himself. He was turquoise, except for a spot on his forehead, which was white. His mane and tail were now all the colors of the rainbow. His horn seemed to be made of topaz, yellow and sparkling. Then he noticed his eyes. His right eye was a shining black color, and his left eye, the one that felt funny, was a fiery purple.’

Reviewed By K.C. Finn for Readers’ FavoriteJourney to Osm: The Blue Unicorn’s Tale is a work of high fantasy fiction penned by author Sybrina Durant. Written for all ages, the action takes place in MarBryn, a world of unicorns where the creatures live in a sentient society. Their numbers are dwindling and the species, known as Metal Horns, are slowly dying out, which means their magic is dying with them. When their Oracle predicts that the ill-fated unicorns might find their salvation in a newborn foal, everyone’s eyes are on Blue from the moment he’s born. Unfortunately, Blue is born without metal, but the pressure of being such a disappointment drives him to succeed in other ways, and he might just turn out to be the saviour his clan is looking for after all.
The first thing that I absolutely loved about this tale was the prophecy-gone-wrong concept at its very beginning. Throughout the book, author Sybrina Durant subverts the norms of this kind of high fantasy, breaking many tropes, but then bringing in others to surprise you at just the right moment. The result is an intriguing plot line and a tale of true grit and determination as Blue attempts to live up to expectations, despite not being born with the powers he was claimed to have. There were moments where I genuinely forgot that I was reading about unicorns, because the emotional story lines of the characters were strong and relatable throughout. I believe that many fantasy fans will enjoy Journey to Osm: The Blue Unicorn’s Tale.
