Book Summary

Cast out from the magical kingdom of The Realm and into the dying desert of the Sands beyond, Marshal Clint Gulliver and his unicorn Edward have finally found peace in the small and dusty town of Solace. For the first time since leaving The Realm, Clint has dared to be happy, getting hitched to his bride to be, Mai. But when the town faces a deadly approaching enemy, the gunslinger feels compelled unholster his seven-shooters to face it... and the dark magic it brings with it.

From the creators of Yesterdays Gone (Platt) and Fat Vampire (Truant) comes this reinvention of both the western genre and unicorn lore. Written for children and teens -- but complex and awesome enough for adult readers -- Unicorn Western is Harry Potter without wizards, with gunslingers, with talking unicorns and epic unicorn fights, and with more turkey pie.

    Oh my GOSH, if you ever wondered what writing comes out of authors who are way overtired and getting a bit loopy, this is the answer to that question! I LOVED this book for just that reason! It is so out there and crazy that it just sucks you into the reading of it. Before I knew it I was diving into this western world of magic, unicorns, and red smoke blazing shoot outs. The plot here is so different that it reminds me of a train wreck...you just can't bring yourself to look away from it. This is by far the most unique book I have ever read in my entire life, but in a crazy sort of way it just all worked and made perfect sense while reading it. The characters are ones you just can't help but love. Clint and Edward just seal the deal for wonderful characters. I mean who can not love a magical Marshal and his trusty Unicorn??!! There were so many parts in this book that simply made me laugh out loud while reading it. Just picturing some of the things that are described are enough to make you fall off your chair laughing, but wanting to read on too. Teddy and his "trusty steed" are pretty funny add ins too. The writing was so descriptive and so much fun to read, the characters were amazing, and the plot was so unique it was just the best. If you are iffy about reading this book I say this...DON'T BE you will LOVE IT!! I know I did.

    5/5 Stars!

    Oh, what a fun story. Authors Sean Platt and Johnny B. Truant famously wrote this book (which has subsequently blossomed into a 9-volume series, each based on a classic western) after their friend David Wright told them they were unqualified to write a western. When asked why, Wright explained that massive research would need to be undertaken, because Platt and Truant didn't even know what color smoke would come out of the cowboy's guns. Platt and Truant cheerfully replied that they'd simply put a unicorn in the story, and blame any factual inaccuracies on magic.

    So they did. And the results are engaging and charming.

    An amusing re-interpretation of the film High Noon, set in a Dark Tower-style universe, Unicorn Western volume 1 introduces a magical land in which a gunslinger and his crotchety unicorn Edward are forced to take action when an old foe threatens revenge. The details are unimportant, because the novel (novella, actually) is about the telling, not the plot.

    In this world, unicorns subsist on a diet of apple cider and turkey pie, and bleed rainbows when they get injured. Meanwhile, the music of Billy Joel has become sacred across the realm, because ... well, why the hell not?

    I'll be reading the rest of the series. And soon.
