Blurb: Tobias is a twenty-five-year-old virgin, bored with his life, and unsatisfied with how average and unremarkable he is—until he sees a silver unicorn. When the beautiful creature begins appearing to him regularly, Tobias doesn’t know if it’s a cruel joke or some form of mental illness. What interest could the unicorn have in someone like him? Searching for it in a park at night leads to an attack on Tobias, but he’s rescued by a handsome and mysterious man called Amar. Something about the man calls to Tobias, and suddenly his life feels a lot less ordinary and a lot less lonely. But fate can be harsh, and the biggest challenge to Tobias and Amar’s relationship has yet to reveal itself.
Review: Tobias is lonely. He’s a virgin – by choice? – and he has a good enough job and a BFF – but he’s lonely. In addition – he’s beginning to think he’s losing his mind because he’s seeing a Unicorn – nearly every day. The unicorn never comes close enough to touch – but it’s always there.
One night he’s out looking for said unicorn – when he’s attacked in a park, a dark, mysterious, and slightly cynical man comes to his rescue, Amar.
For the next several months, the two meet on the night of the full moon – but one month – Amar doesn’t show up.
This is not at all what I was expecting. This is far closer to a fairy tale of old – like the original Hans Christian Andersen stories – dark, not easy, nearly ending in despair.
It has a decided HEA – so don’t worry!
The writing is very good, it’s a very low steam story- fading to black in some parts – and there’s more angst than happiness – but it ends on a very happy note.
Overall Impression: I really liked it
