Synposis according to Goodreads:
“Forget everything you ever knew about unicorns…
unicorns are venomous, man-eating monsters with huge fangs and
razor-sharp horns. Fortunately, they’ve been extinct for a hundred and
Astrid had always scoffed at her
eccentric mother’s stories about killer unicorns. But when one of the
monsters attacks her boyfriend—thereby ruining any chance of him taking
her to the prom—Astrid finds herself headed to Rome to train as a
unicorn hunter at the ancient cloisters the hunters have used for
However, at the cloisters all is not what it seems.
Outside, the unicorns wait to attack. And within, Astrid faces other,
unexpected threats: from the crumbling, bone-covered walls that vibrate
with a terrible power to the hidden agendas of her fellow hunters
to—perhaps most dangerously of all—her growing attraction to a handsome
art student … an attraction that could jeopardize everything.”
I highly recommend this book for people who like adventure, for women (especially teenage gals and young adult gals), for fans of the YA genre, and for fans of the supernatural genre.
