Make sure you grab the first one (if you haven’t already) in this series, because it’s definitely worth it. This second offering has an epic story laced with ethics, science and love. A pleasure!
Astrid is now a fully trained unicorn hunter. Feeling torn between Cory’s bloodlust and Phil’s charity, she questions her own ethics when it comes to killing the bloodthirsty unicorns. Astrid jumps at a chance to go investigate Phil’s rapist in France. As she explores unicorn culture and the secret of the remedy, she wonders whether the unicorns are as monstrous as they seem.
