    On old Earth, unicorns really existed, but they were hunted into near extinction for their horns that could heal and purify any kind of matter. A space faring race rescued the few survivors of the magical beings and took them to a new world called Vhilinyar where they created the Linyaari race, a bipedal humanoid species with a horn that heals and purifies on their forehead.

    Their world was a peaceful and tranquil one until the Khlee race decimated it, making it unfit to live on anymore. Acorna, brought up outside the Linyaari people, is helping her people terraform so that they could once more live on it. Acorna and other members of her species conduct surveys on the planet when some of them mysteriously disappear. Some of Acorna's closest friends and her lifemate Aari are among the missing and the unicorn girl vows to do everything in her power, including working the space-time continuum to bring them back.

    ACORNA'S SEARCH is a great space opera that readers will enjoy for the sheer pleasure it gives the audience. The Linyaari and their homeland are so colorfully described that the reader feels as if they actually exist. There's definitely another installment of this fascinating series on the way because the authors left one very important threat dangling.
