Review of Into the Dream by Suzanne Weyn

Synopsis: "When Sheila McCarthy first landed in the magical kingdom of Arren, all she could think about was how to get back home. But surrounded by her new friends, the beautiful unicorns and their courageous Unicorn Queen, she soon realized that hanging out in an enchanted land and doing battle with an evil wizard beat going to high school any day....
Sheila has been home for a month - and not a day passes that she doesn't wonder what's going on in the magical world of Arren. When Dr. Reit shows her the improvements made in his transporter, Sheila sees her chance. She sneaks into his laboratory and plunges through the portal - back to Arren and into her most dangerous adventure ever!
Her old enemy, the evil wizard Mardock, has found a way to make the unicorns disappear - and Sheila and her warrior friends must journey to an exotic land of pyramids and evil spells to save them. But Dr. Reit has followed her through the portal - and is captured by the dreaded sorcerer himself!"

My Review: I kind of wished that the series had concluded after the last book. At times during this book it felt like a repeat of previous events. The Unicorn Warriors are once again faced with the same battle and same enemy they have previously fought. I did like how some of the dynamics between the characters had changed with the time apart. Though again so many of the characters I had come to enjoy took a back seat if they made an appearance at all. I am kind of finding the series to be up and down for me. Maybe it is because there are so many authors involved with their own writing voices and at times it seems their own agendas for the storyline and characters.
My Rating: Again this series is becoming repetitive and at times a little confused in itself.  I give it a rating of Two Paws and a Stump Wag.
