Pure wish fulfilment. That is... assuming you wish to be a down-on-his-luck, half-unicorn space rogue, struggling to reclaim his starship and find his lost horn against an army of human oppressors who hold all the cards. I never knew fairies and unicorns could be so dark. The book throws aside so many tropes and just does whatever the fuck it wants, inventing an entirely new world with new rules, and I am always in support of that. Shut your brain off and go along for the wild ride... Berry deftly creates a diverse and representative universe full of all kinds of magical creatures and humans, a strange, wacky world. Five Unicorn Flush is a perfect blend of space opera and high fantasy and includes an incredibly diverse cast of mythological features, from centaurs and unicorns to dryads and dwarves. Berry's follow-up to Space Unicorn Blues is just as zany and inexplicably touching as her first novel. Fast, compelling, compassionate, and entertaining as all hell.
