Write a Review

From Alice Hemming, the bestselling author of The Midnight
Unicorn, comes a new unicorn fairy tale.

Some bad unicorns steal away magic,
and some steal away precious memories.
There are even some that steal away people -
and those are possibly the most dangerous unicorns of all.
In the usually peaceful kingdom of Essendor, people are
going missing. The palace makes an urgent decree: all subjects must
abide by a strict curfew for their own safety.
But for Thandie and her friends, a curfew means more adventure.
They dare each other to sneak about the city at
night - although Thandie is the only one brave enough to actually
do it.
One night, as an eerie fog sets in, Thandie is startled
by a strange boy - a boy she's never seen before. He looks
about her age but there's something unsettling about him,
leaving Thandie to wonder if he's someone she should trust.
Little does she know that this meeting will force her life wildly
off-track, pushing her towards an unexpected danger
and a fearsome unicorn who is at the very heart of the
terrible disappearances she's heard so much about.

Enchanting dark fairy tales with magical unicorns, fearsome
villains and inspiring heroines
Perfect for fans of fairy tales, Disney and unicorns
