Amy had a douche-canoe of a fiancee in the previous books and I was kind of hoping to see her break free in them but we don’t get more details until Unicorn’s Tale. After her experience with her fiancee she is desperate to feel loved by someone who actually likes who she is, the only problem is that she isn’t sure who she is anymore. After bending to the will of the ton she feels a bit lost and The Unicorn’s Tail is just as much a story of self-discovery as it is a romance novella. I loved seeing Amy find out who she is under the guidance of Cara, Loki and Jackson…of course not all of it is good guidance *cough* Loki *cough*. There is a bit of an isosceles love triangle here, meaning it involves three people but it’s rather obvious which two are more invested in the relationship. The artifact portion of this is more subtle than the previous artifacts and while it clearly has an affect on Amy’s life it doesn’t become a HUGE part of the actual narrative.
I’m super excited that I got to learn more about Jackson, who is a rather gruff and stoic fellow but has a surprising tenderness about him that we don’t get to see very often. Then of course is Loki, who is still my favorite character even though he acted like a royal jerk at times in this. I’m so happy that I get to look forward to seeing Amy in the next book.
When Amy Hamilton ditches her scumbag fiancé, the London ton shuns her. Her! The good girl who has always done everything ever expected of a woman in the late 19th century. Humiliated and alone, she asks her best friend Cara to let her stay with her and her husband at their country estate. At least there she can be useful since the place is dreadful and in need of a complete overhaul. Once there though, the attention of two men confuse her. What could these men want with her?
I absolutely love the Artifact Hunter series and Jackson is a favorite character of mine. Amy is nice too, but thus far I haven’t seen a whole lot of her. In this story I get to know her a lot better and I have to say, she’s spunky and full of grit now that she’s letting her true self free. It’s a joy to watch her spread her wings. Loki is always fun to have around, but it was Jackson I wanted to see win the girl. The writing is superb. Even in a short story such as this there is enough info and development to keep it flowing smoothly without overwhelming it with unnecessary detail. While there isn’t as much steampunk to this story as the others, that’s not necessarily a bad thing. This is more a romance than an adventure like the main books in the series and it works quite well to fill in the gap for those of us chomping at the bit for more stories.
As much as I loved this series of books I feel that you should know that there are some typeos in the books. Regardless of the errors I still gave it 5 stars because I believe they deserve it/
Amy was a bit too "goody, goody" to be really enjoyable as a leading lady and I didn't really feel the chemistry, spark between Jackson and and Amy. Well written as far as a novella goes but after reading the first book in the series I was expecting a bit more from a talented author.

Was little expensive and don't like typing a long review. Other than that it was just fine
