The Last Unicorn

by Peter S Beagle

Added by: DEnver



Peter S. Beagle's The Last Unicorn has sold at least six million copies around the world since it was published in 1968, and tens of millions of viewers have delighted in the animated film version (for which Peter also wrote the screenplay). But none of the fans of this amazing work have ever known the full story of how The Last Unicorn came to be. In 1962, the 23 year-old Beagle was at a career crossroads. His fantasy novel A Fine and Private Place had been released to great critical acclaim in 1960, but his mainstream second book had been flatly rejected by his publisher.

Found the title
The Actual title of the book is "Son of the Shadows" by Juliet Marillier. It is the second book in a series of three. Very good book.

Wrong Title
The Title says the books should be "The Last Unicorn," unfortunately it is no that book. I am not sure what book it is, but it is not the right one. I assure you that it is a good book, but if you had your heart set on reading "The Last Unicorn," then I am afraid that this is not it...

Don't you long for something different to happen, something so exciting and new it carries you along with it like a great tide, something that lets your life blaze and burn so the whole world can see it? Something that touches you with joy or with terror, that lifts you out of your safe, little path and onto a great, wild road whose ending nobody knows?
