From Alice Hemming, the bestselling author of The Midnight
Unicorn, comes a brand-new unicorn fairytale.
In the faraway kingdom of Elithia, a powerful king holds
the throne, with ten Royal Knights under his trusted command. Fearsome
warriors and talented fighters, the knights are led
by Celene, the most exceptional of them all.
Celene's brother, Hero, also works for the king, and his
role as the king's advisor gives him a privilege unrivalled
by most. So when he falls ill, the king sends for the wisest
healers in the kingdoms. Many healers answer his call, but
none are able to discover the reason for Hero's failing health.
In desperation, Celene seeks out a sorcerer called
Cidra who practices dark magic. Cidra promises Celene the
chance to save her brother's life.
The cost? Her soul.
When Celene refuses, Cidra curses her in rage.
Weaving her magic, she forces Celene to take the form of a unicorn.
Celene becomes an outcast-and a legend: the Cursed
Unicorn becomes well-known in the surrounding kingdoms,
though where the unicorn came from nobody could say.
Will Celene remain a unicorn forever, or will she break the magic
that traps her? Her story started once upon a time, but who
knows how it will end...
