Corrine is a lonely teenager in Scotland, Perthshire in fact, devastated after the death of her horse. To escape she plays an online fantasy roleplaying game, but this involves a simulation café to get an immersive VR experience.
When Corrinne spots a white unicorn among the pines and birches, her two worlds begin to collide, with exciting results.

This is a short story. While it doesn't end on a cliff-hanger, there is an excerpt from the next instalment which introduces a different kind of moun

This was the promiss of something good. I will definitely read Kelpie Curse.

This short story is a teaser for The Celtic Fey series, and I appreciate that. There’s nothing more annoying than investing time in a new series, only to find you really don’t like the writing, characters, plot etc. Unicorn Magic gives an excellent taster for the series, for only a small time investment, and left me wanting more. Job well done.
The writing is excellent, and the concept, for me, a real grabber. Scottish teen, Corrine, immerses herself in the virtual reality game ‘Feyland’, to esc

I liked this short book very much, I found that the video game idea was great and I read it with interest. I was really attached to the main character and I think I will read the sequel as soon as possible

I love the cover for Unicorn Magic and this magical story that warmed my heart making me want more from Roz Marshall and the Feyland series.

This was so so so good. So good that I'm already planning to buy the sequels.
Corinne's story is really relatable and the idea behind this game that brings fantasy to life is brilliant, in short, I cannot wait to know what's going to happen next!

The 1 thing I don't like about teasers is that they're short and leave you wanting for more, even if they don't end in a cliff hanger like The Unicorn Magic but the good part is that it does save a lot of time and money investment if you don't end up liking that set of stories.

I was really intrigued by the element of how modern technology that is VR gaming was weaved into a story of myth and magic. As a teaser it definitely leaves you wanting for a lot more.

Can't wait to read the next adventure

Unicorn Magic by Roz Marshall is Book 1 in The Celtic Fey series. As such, it is a teaser, giving the background and introducing the main characters. Corinne MacArthur starts a visual reality computer game and is given her first challenge. As she moves around “Feyland” she starts to question if she is in, a game or in an altered reality.

The story development, the characters, and the dialog as sufficiently compelling for me to purchase the second book in the series. I needed to know what was goin
A very short story of a girl who uses the VR game Feyland to escape from IRL problems. I didn't really feel invested in the story much, as not a lot really happened. I also didn't get much of a feel for Corinne's emotional state - I guess I expected there to be more emotion in how hard she was taking real life and loss. The in-game events felt like an introduction that ended just as it was getting going.

I really liked this book the video game idea was really original and I loved it it's a really short book so we're in the plot right at the beginning and I won't say more because spoilers because even there isn't a lot of pages I was really attached to the main character and I will probably read the sequel as soon as possible

I love these Fey stories. This is a small sample of a complete story. I have read Fayland so I know what's going on, it is a game of virtual reality but sometimes the magic follows the gamer out of Fey Realms and effects their real life. I would have given the story a 5 if I didn't have to read 2 or 3 more short stories to know the whole story.

A girl grieving over the loss of her horse spend time in Feyland a virtuality game. Where she finds a very handsome bard and a very not good looking future friend. The story is short and ends on a cliffhanger, which will draw you into the next book. All in all a very good read, and can't wait to read the next one.

I've been enjoying a number of books about gaming and virtual reality lately. As addictive to read as to play the game, I would imagine! But when the characters follow you into the real world, things could get complicated.

Enchanting and engrossing short tale about a horse-loving teenaged girl being introduced to the Magical Realm of Feyland. About overcoming sorrow and stumbling into a fated path riddled with fey creatures and magic.

Decently written story but not really my thing. The mystery of the magical online game didn't seem all that interesting, and I'm also not one for the horse-loving girl theme. Someone more interested in either would probably like it more, and maybe the rest of the series too.

Unicorns my favourite.
A great wee story of a magic land that is entered through a game. A fabulous story for a rain filled day. Looking forward to the next book. Thank you Roz.

A very short story set in Feyland. I think. But there were horses!

Corinne MacArthur's first attempt at the magical SIM VR game Feyland appears to be experiencing technical difficulties. Whilst she's hardly an expect, or even barely a novice in this particular game, the advanced features of the first stage of her entry seem miles ahead of what else is out there. The particularly mesmerising minstrel in the centre of the clearing was surely out of sorts, as his captivating voice drew her in. The aspects of his voice were surely a thrall, especially given number ...more

Very short novella. Interesting idea but I feel it jumps around a lot and is hard to keep one train of thought going before moving onto the next.
This was an entertaining and quick read.The idea of playing a video game that is actually set in a real world with the threat of dire consequences was interesting.The sim game characters are based on myths and legends and are imbued with a delightful sense of mystery.I really enjoyed the story so far and look forward to reading more about this world the author created.I received a copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased and honest review.

Dealing with a heartbreaking loss, Corinne escapes into the video game world of Feyland where virtual reality and real life become blurred. Unicorn Magic was a really quick and fun read. I'm really eager to see what comes next in this intriguing series!
