My brother Wilfrid keeps saying it's not fair that it should all have happened to me. Me being a girl, and a baby, and too stupid to lace up my own sandals properly. But I think it's fair. I think everything happened exactly the way it should have done. Except for the sad parts, and maybe those too.

Two Hearts marks the long awaited return of the author to the world of The Last Unicorn. The action takes places decades after the events in the classic book, and is told through the eyes of Rooz - a delightfully spunky 10 years old. As such, her story can hold its own remarcably well without prior knowledge of what went on in the original book, but any reader who is unfamiliar with the characters and with the beautiful prose of Peter S Beagle, should remedy the situation fast. I believe The Last Unicorn, as The Princess Bride, should not be missing from the shelves of every self-respecting fantasy aficionado.

Coming back to Rooz, she has a tranquil (if you don't count scuffles with her older brother), idyllic life in a postcard medieval village. Then a griffin comes to the neighbouring wood, animals and later children get snatched and the knights sent to fight it are slaughtered in turn. We will learn that a griffin is very hard to kill because it has two hearts : a lion and an eagle one. So here's an explanation for the title, although I prefer the more poetical interpretation of two hearts beating together in love : Rooz and Malk, Schmendrick and Molly, Lir and Amalthea.

When her best friend disappears, Rooz decides to run away from home and petition the King directly. On the road she meets Schmendrick and Molly Grue, and later King Lir. I'll stop here, in order to not spoil the coming events, but I'll say there's not a word out of place, there will be laughter and pain, and the bittersweet ending would not leave a dry eye in the house.

But the unicorn had all the world in her eyes, all the world I'm never going to see, but it doesn't matter, because now I have seen it, and it's beautiful, and I was in there too.

6 stars out of 5, without reservations.
