UNICORNE Files: Book 1: A Dark Inheritance by Chris D’ Lacey is about Michael, a regular thirteen-year-old, who discovers he has a special ability: he has the power to “reshuffle the universe” and change reality. When a top-secret organization called UNICORNE learns of this, they are keen to get him to join their team of Talens, which are the people with supernatural abilities. There, he learns what really happened to his father that had mysteriously disappeared three years before. Michael’s first mission as a UNICORNE agent involves his first reality shift, the dog he had saved by doing so, and a girl named Freya who had had a heart transplant when she was younger.
I enjoyed reading this book because it was suspenseful and exciting. However, much of the book was quite confusing and I had to read at least five chapters to figure out what was happening in most cases. The plot was interesting, though, and the characters were portrayed really well. A good age group for this book would probably be around 12- 15. It comes to a total of 288 pages and 33 chapters. So, UNICORNE Files: Book 1: A Dark Inheritance receives a rating of:
