Read full description of the books Unicorn Point:I've really only got myself to blame. Like Piers Anthony himself, I really struggle to let a series go. Unicorn Point is the sixth book of seven, in what was supposed to be a trilogy. I'm not necessarily expecting to love these anymore, but I am determined to finish the series. As the previous novels have dealt with Stile and Blue, then their sons Mach and Bane. This one switches to the grandchildren: Flach and Nepe. Their parents (who we remember have promised to work for the bad citizens and adepts because their parents wouldn't bless their unions with a jelly-like alien and a unicorn) believe them to be borderline retarded as they aren't developing as expected.
However, at the ripe old age of four, they are actually convinced by their grandparents (Stile and Blue) to go into hiding so that their powers (oh yes, they have secret powers, they can communicate with each other across the two realms whenever they want – nobody else has noticed though) can develop without being used by the bad citizens and adepts. At the age of four! At that tender age they are able to form complex political opinions, keep secrets from their own parents about their abilities, are smart enough to have always done so without getting noticed up until then, and to top it all are able to create and action their own, totally self-sufficient, escape plans and stay undetected for a number of years.
As is the style these days (1989?) the chapters rotate through a number of PoV characters. Each taking turns to narrate the story. This would be fine if Anthony could just shake this habit of having each character reminisce extensively about the events of the previous chapters and books. It's massively annoying and he needs to stop it. This book could easily have been about half the size if Anthony just cut out all the repetition. And the weirdly creepy bestiality and rape obsessions.
Finally, the book just stops. It doesn't really end. Although one side has technically won, (view spoiler)[the baddies (hide spoiler)], it's not clear what that means for any of the characters. We don't know how the balance of power is affected between the good guys and bad guys in each realm, or how the balance between the two realms is affected. I can only assume that this is Anthony putting something aside for the final novel...
