A riding competition. A magical battle. Can she win first prize and rescue a herd of lost unicorns?
Lily loves every minute in the saddle. But native herb lessons with her Maori grandmother keep interrupting the 12-year-old's Pony Club championship training. As if that weren't enough, a curious sound under the stars just revealed an impossible sight: battle-ready unicorns appearing out of thin air.
While the wild, horned creatures look nothing like a fairy tale, she refuses to turn her back on the animals in need. So when the king asks her to hide his herd from an evil sorceress, she calls on her friends to share the terrifying responsibility. If the girls fail, then Lily's mythical new friends will be forced to fight a deadly war…
Can Lily use her wits and the power of her Maori heritage to preserve the unicorns' freedom?
