Review: The Trouble with Unicorns

The Trouble with Unicorns by D.T. Dyllin
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Blurb from Goodreads:

Part-time demon tracker, full-time optimist …

Talia White does what comes naturally to a unicorn: Balances the scales between light and dark with hefty doses of love and joy. 

Faced with a string of high profile demon possessions, Talia is determined to do her job, despite the fact that she finds herself strapped with a brooding dragon warrior as her new guardian. 

That’s the trouble with unicorns … they’ll accomplish their goal one way or another, even if they have to get a little stabby to do it.


This book had caight my attention with the blurb and well the whole idea of the plot. The whole idea of having unicorn,dragon and mermaid shapeshifters was really cool to be brought down together. Usually where dragons and unicorns are posing as the opposites here, they're partners. That was one weirdly interesting thing that made me curious to read the book.

As it began certainly the book impressed me, as I kept reading past a few chapters I felt the character ageing had some issue. Rather I'd say it was overly immature. The writing style felt like some teenage girl has read a ton of Wattpad novels and had began writing her own. Not saying in any offending or bad way but it just felt like it. The whole idea was really amazing and had bought me along with a few other reviewers as well but then when you began reading it, it was like a childish theme over it. At least that's what I thought in the beginning but then, as I began reading ahead, it was I don't how to say this, but it was nice as well is overly immature at the same time.

It felt as if the plot idea is really amazing and then someone put the child safety mode on. Turning everything weirdly light headed and cartoonish. But then some steamy scenes in the middle didn't suddenly go with the theme again. I don't know what set of people would love reading this one. But certainly it wasn't a totally rubbish read at all. If this book had been on Wattpad, surely it would've a ton of fans for sure. I think the book needs rewriting for sure because somethings are very ingenious and others are just plain immature leftovers. It's really weird, because you really liked the base idea and execution was just weird. Some might like it while if you are a serious reader then it's not a book for you.

Also, I'd really love if you'd subscribe to my blog by clicking here and It'd surely encourage me more to cover a ton other books which you might love to know about.
