Sometime around , I was an elementary schooler with a love of reading. I had discovered the Unicorns of Balinor series, and while I wasn't massively impressed that honor went to Harry Potter and Song of the Lioness , I enjoyed the series enough to quickly read to the end.

I finished Shadows Over Balinor , returned it to the out-of-town l Alrighty. I finished Shadows Over Balinor , returned it to the out-of-town library I'd got it from, and eagerly went over to the shelf for the next book. Except there wasn't a next book. Some quick OPAC remember that term? I don't think I've heard it since research proved that Shadows Over Balinor was the end of the series, and my tiny little child-brain didn't understand.
I honestly wondered if Mary Stanton had died before managing to finish the series. I was stunned that the end of the series had come and gone without addressing the lingering plot threads. My Night of the Shifter's Moon review outlined these, so I'll revisit them in order of importance. What's the secret behind Linc's mysterious past, and will he have to go back to Glacier River Farm?
Both of these questions are answered, but in what's possibly silliest sequence of events to be found in children's fantasy. I won't ruin the answer for you, because if you read this you will want to be surprised. It's one of the most ridiculous things I've ever read, and I could never take that WTF away from anyone. Will Lori ever get home, or is she going to stay in Balinor forever? This isn't resolved.

At all. The series ends by implying Lori will go home someday , but that's it. What's up with that Kraken guy, and is he supposed to be the new Big Bad? This is answered, but it's vague and befuddingly. I'm still not sure what his deal was.
