This is a short story that introduces a new series.

This beautiful fantasy was a joy to read. Full of mythical creatures our keeper was a delightful OCD sufferer. Will the Unicorn be found? This quickie is a great start to a new series. You really should check this one out! I did receive a free copy of this book and voluntarily chose to review it.
