Year f the Unicorn is a somewhat odd Witch World spinoff. It depends heavily on journeys through nightmare dream landscapes, which I must confess I have always had trouble following. But the core characters are strong and the central dilemma compelling
Year f the Unicorn is a somewhat odd Witch World spinoff. But the core characters are strong and the central dilemma compelling. I read this many, many years ago and recalled enjoying it, and then just reread it and found it a delight.
