Format: Hardcover
Forget everything you ever knew about unicorns . . . Real unicorns are venomous, man-eating monsters with huge fangs and razor-sharp horns. Fortunately, they've been extinct for a hundred and fifty years. Or not. Astrid had always scoffed at her eccentric mother's stories about killer unicorns. But when one of the monsters attacks her boyfriend--thereby ruining any chance of him taking her to the prom--Astrid finds herself headed to Rome to train as a unicorn hunter at the ancient cloisters the hunters have used for centuries. However, at the cloisters all is not what it seems. Outside, the unicorns wait to attack. And within, Astrid faces other, unexpected threats: from the crumbling, bone-covered walls that vibrate with a terrible power to the hidden agendas of her fellow hunters to--perhaps most dangerously of all--her growing attraction to a handsome art student . . . an attraction that could jeopardize everything.

Rampant is a bizarre book. I'm not saying that it wasnt a good book, but the idea of Killer Unicorns is just greek to me. It's an original and excellent idea, as is Unicorn Hunters and all other aspects of the book. It was a pretty unexpected read for me, as I am Team Zombie. The book was written in beautiful prose, I was sucked in by the use of language; it was guite stunning. I found it a bit slow at times, but considering it's a book about VIRIGN UNICORN HUNTERS, I'll let that slide.

Kudos to Diana Peterfreund for inventing the idea of Virgin Unicorn Hunters, it is certainly something I have never heard of before. It's a totally different spin on Unicorn, which is good, because I dont really see which YA readers are going to read about pink and fluffy terrors that haunt kids fairytale books.

Think unicorns are sweet, magical horse-like creatures? Think again!

Diana Peterfreund introduces us to the darker side of unicorns in her novel RAMPANT. Peterfreund's unicorns are man-eating monsters. They can kill with poison in their horns, rip someone apart with their sharp teeth, and some have breath that can kill (literally).

Astrid Llewelyn has listened to her mother's crazy stories about extinct man-eating unicorns for years. Astrid never believed the stories - until the night her date ended up on the sharp end of a unicorn horn.

Now her mother's stories are all too real, and Astrid is sent to Rome for training as a unicorn hunter. She meets a group of other virgin descendants of Alexander the Great, and together they train to hunt and kill unicorns.

But Astrid doesn't want to be a hunter.

I enjoyed reading RAMPANT. There was some sexual tension and scenes of passion, as well as discussion about sex, but not enough to bother me. I'd recommend this for older readers 14+ because of the content.

I enjoyed the characters and learning about their lives. Astrid is strong, and yet vulnerable enough to make her real. The characters and their lives will run Rampant in my memory for a long time, but in a good way.

16-year-old Astrid thinks her mother is nuts for constantly going on about killer unicorns, until one attacks and nearly kills her boyfriend in the woods. Soon Astrid is shipped off to Rome to train as a unicorn hunter, whether she likes it or not.
Are the unicorns really that dangerous? And how is a group of teenage girls supposed to fight them?

This was a pretty unique story, and I have to say that it was quite entertaining.

Astrid was a good character, I got how she thought that her mother was nuts, and I also got why she went along with it rather than fighting when she knew it would do no good. I also liked the way she grew into her position as a unicorn hunter, but was never over-confident or conceited.

I liked the storyline in this book. I have to say that I have never read another book about killer unicorns, and it actually worked really well. There were quite a few little twists that I didn’t see coming, and I felt so sorry for Astrid’s cousin and what happened to her.
There was some romance, which was actually alright, although again, poor Phil!
The ending was quite good, and I’ll definitely be reading the next book.
Overall; great killer unicorn book!

I know that everybody is always saying that you should never judge a book by it's cover but I very rarely pick up a book and read the blurb if it has a crap cover. I thought that the cover on this book was brilliant so I picked it up, read the description and I bought it instantly. I was hooked from the first few pages. It was a really good book and I had a hard time putting down! I can't wait for the next book to be released so that I can read it!!

Killer unicorns!
And teenage virgin warrior nuns to hunt them!
In modern day USA & Rome
What more could you want?
It's well written, with a nice flow that keeps the book in your hand
And there's a sequel - Ascendant
I loved it & would recommend it to anyone that wants to see the ups & downs of a teenagers life from the viewpoint of a cloistered militant novice.
