Book Condition: Very Good


Beagle's third book and second novel, this one a terrific read from a genre too often littered with books so reminiscent of each other that the brain melts. A unicorn who believes a hunter's warning that she is the last one sets out on a quest to learn what happened to the rest. This is sometimes sad, sometimes funny, sometimes poetic, and sometimes beautiful, but always entertaining and thought-provoking. Ranked by a Locus readers' poll at #18 (tied with Marion Zimmer Bradley's 'The Mists of Avalon') on the all-time (before 1990) best list of fantasy novels. Blue boards w/black cloth backstrip w/pale blue/yellow/purple spine lettering, 218 pages, dust jacket design by Mel Williamson. Top edge stain partially faded, faint 1" x 1/8" stain to front cover, in lightly edgeworn price-clipped dust jacket, light surface wear.
