Unicorn Keep is my new young adult fantasy about Jiline who switches places with her best friend, Madelen, to become a unicorn keeper. It should be coming out in May if production stays on target with no major disasters.
***“I am Mage Daniah,” her voice spread over the square. “Your families have a wonderful opportunity presented to them today. One of you may become a Unicorn Keeper.”
Jiline’s breath stopped. Her parents had been whispering last night as to why the mages had come. Sometimes mages traveled looking for apprentices, but occasionally they needed new keepers: children and young people of pure thought to care for the unicorns a small group of mages protected year-round at the Keep.
“This is a great honor for your family.” Mage Daniah paused and looked down the line again. Her hand suddenly appeared from the swirling robe.
