Blurb: For hundreds of years Elek Keros never questioned the way of his kind. Until the moment his soul awakens and he finds himself in love with a human. But how can he bridge the divide between their two worlds and claim what is rightfully his?
Content with his life, Elek Keros never questions the ways of the Unicorn. Until one night the sense of something coming awakens him from a deep sleep. He breaks Unicorn law by leaving the enchanted glade his kind lives in to search for what is calling to him. Each night he returns home without answers, but he cannot stop entering the forest day after day to find what he seeks.
The answer lies in a small child Elek rescues. Over the years, he watches over the boy, learns all that he can about the human and steadily falls in love with him. But how can the love he feels possibly breach the divide between their two worlds?
Review: Elek feels the pull for something… he knows it’s out there and has been searching for it. He’s shocked when he discovers what it is, but cannot change how he feels.
This is a lovely take on the legends and myths of Unicorns. bringing them into our modern-day with a lovely twist. Elek watches over the human from afar until the day he is followed by the human and they start to get to know each other. Jonathon is overjoyed to find the Unicorn from his childhood and is amazed that it can communicate with him. But, when he believes that what he feels for the Unicorn is wrong they part unhappy ways.
I really liked this story and thought that for a short it was quite full with details. Both the Unicorn’s and the human’s feelings are really well done and the longing of the Unicorn is wonderful. I also liked that there is a secret within the Unicorn herd. I really did want more interaction between the two MCs as there wasn’t much written about but we were given the impression that they spent a lot of time together. I am also really hoping that we will be seeing more of the Unicorns because there is a lot of potential to unearth the true reason behind the secret.
So I will recommend this to those who love fantasy, Unicorns, hot sex, a true love story and a happy ever after.
