Journey To Osm – The Blue Unicorn’s Tale

Journey To Osm - The Blue Unicorn's Tale

Facing extinction, the Metal-Horned Unicorns of MarBryn are desperate for hope. Any hope. . .So, when the Oracle reveals the prophecy promising just that, the remaining members of the tribe pin their future on the birth of a young foal. Hope becomes despair when the baby unicorn is born without metal. . .because without metal there is no magic. And without magic, this little blue newborn has no chance to defeat the evil sorcerer that has imprisoned all of MarBryn. Magh’s rule proves both harsh and brutal and by the time Blue comes of age there are only twelve metal-horns left in all of MarBryn. Eleven can claim some form of metal based magic. . .but one must get by on sheer grit, will, and the desire to avenge his parents untimely deaths. Like most of the metal-horns, Blue disregards the prophecy as nonsense, but driven by his insecurities, he covertly trains for a fight he’s ill-equipped to win.And then hope comes back around. For Blue…For the Metal Horn Unicorns of MarBryn …But can a unicorn with no metal … no magic … answer the call of fate? The Blue Unicorn's Journey To Osm Illustrated book was a feast for the eyes but the story was short. This novel is the expanded version of that story.

5 Star Review By K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite

Journey 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 atjust the right moment. The result is an intriguing plot line and a taleo f true grit and determination as Blue attempts to live up to expectations, despite not being born with the powers he was claimed tohave. 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.
