Forget everything you ever knew about nicorns . .
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.When I received this book, I was extreme excited because I had seen rave reviews about it online but unfortunately, it didn't exactly turned out like I had hoped. In fact, parts of it just bored me and it just dragged at a snail's pace. Astrid's interesting enough of a character but at times, I felt like she was whiny and that annoyed me but admittedly, she does grow as the book progresses. However, the premise for the story of killer unicorns was pretty great, I really liked reading about the different types of killer unicorns. Several of the secondary characters were very interesting to read about, and these things together was what kept me reading Rampant.
I absolutely hated Astrid's mom, no joke. She was portrait pretty horribly, in my opinion, because it sounded like she was forcing Astrid to go to Italy to learn how to fight the unicorns because that was her dream and she was living vicariously through her kid and honestly, that annoyed the living lights out of me. Enough that I skipped her parts after a while.
While I thought I would really like Rampant and sure, some parts of it were pretty entertaining, those weren't enough for me to really love the book, killer unicorns or not.
