The Last Unicorn By: Peter S. Beagle
This is the story of a unicorn who heard rumor that unicorns no longer existed. She then embarks upon a journey to see if she can either find some of her own kind or find out what happened to them. Her adventures pair her with a magician and world worn lady. The unicorn discovers that King Haggard and his red bull are the reason for the loss of all the other unicorns. When setting out to confront the King and try and save her people. The unicorns story takes and unexpected twist and now she has to face more than the red bull.
I love, love, LOVE this story and yes I meant to write the review up above to leave things out so that it may wet your appetite to buy the book and read it for yourself. (unless you've seen the movie and know what happens. :p) this is a classic fantasy story and should be on every shelf of anyone who loves fantasy novels. I do believe this is going to be a repeat read for me many times over, just like the movie. :)
