Summary:  "Sunchaser, mightiest of the Royal Unicorns of Balinor, has regained his horn. Now, Sunchaser and Princess Arianna must set out on a dangerous quest for the Royal Diadem. Without it, there is no hope of finding Arianna's parents, the king and queen."
 
 
 
Review:   Please note this is book 3 of a series.  See information on the first book here
 
 Another fun book for the series. So far I have really enjoyed this little series by Mary Stanton. This book continues to follow Arianna (goes by Ari) as she and the Sunchaser (whom she calls Chase) go to Castle Entia, in the Valley of Fear, to retrieve her scepter. Castle Entia is home of the Shifter. Arianna is still struggling to accept her role as Princess of Balinor and is torn between that destiny and the idea of just leading a simple life and letting go of her past.
The story also continues to have Linc (the dog), Dr Bohnes, Toby, and the ever annoying brat Lori. We also get introduced to Dill and Basil in this book. They are a pair of foxes who accompany Arianna to the Valley. The ending was unexpected and has me looking forward to the next book in the series. These books are perfect for the older child/youth. A fun series with story and character. Even I, as an adult, enjoy them for a short change of fantasy pace.
