A Witty Romp,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Unicorn Bait (Kindle Edition)
Naomi has an average life with a loving, grounded family and a staid job at a bank. Upon her beloved grandfather's death, she receives what she thinks is a novelty unicorn horn. Then she accidentally pricks her finger and is magically transported to a wild alternate reality. Unceremoniously dropped in the middle of a village being pillaged, she is rescued by a strange old woman who hides her in a castle. At the castle she is claimed by the masked warlord as his wife. Once at his castle she reunites with the old lady who is actually a witch and embarks on a journey to capture a unicorn and find her way home. In succeeding in a return to this universe, she learns that home really is where the heart is and her heart belongs to the masked warlord. He too has been transformed by love thereby angering his evil god. Through trial and error, Naomi returns and with the help of the witch and driven by love, she embarks on a dangerous quest in an effort to bring a happy ending to her fairy tale.
This is a witty romp but fun to read. Yes parts of it are just silly and unbelievable (such as her family's nonchalance about her running off to unknown places to be with a mysterious man) but this is entertainment. The lessons Naomi learns along the way are important. First, people and things are not always what they seem and love not only conquers, it also transforms. This is an enjoyable twist on the traditional fairy tale. Read and enjoy.
