Jonty’s Unicorn

Jonty’s Unicorn by Rebecca Fraser (IFWG Publishing International) PB ISBN 9781922856678

In the quiet hamlet of Blaxby in the Kingdom of Irrawene, Jonty Fairskye’s mother is gravely ill. A tonic from Dagatha, the fearsome witch who dwells in the dark heart of the Terrenwild Woods may be her only hope, but everyone knows Dagatha’s cures cost dearly—both in both gold and regret.

Determined to save her mother, Jonty resolves to enter the King’s Annual Horse Race on her beloved horse, Onyx. The prize, a pouch of gold—more than enough to pay Dagatha. But when Jonty discovers Rose, an injured unicorn, during a woodland training session, she is thunderstruck—there hasn’t been a unicorn sighting in Irrawene for over a century. To ensure Rose’s safety Jonty smuggles her back to her barn to recover.

As the great horse race draws closer, disaster strikes, and Jonty is forced to make a decision that will impact the lives of everyone she loves. Danger and betrayal lurk around every corner, and Jonty will learn that the true meaning of kindness and bravery comes down to how much you’re willing to sacrifice.
