Though the Queen has done everything in her power to prepare Cara, it is Cara who must learn whom to trust and how to use her wits to survive the wilderness of Luster and the ruthless magic of Beloved. As Cara embarks on the journey of her life, there is one person who stands in her way: Beloved, Cara's ancient ancestor, who has spent a lifetime dedicated to ridding the earth of unicorns. Is Cara strong enough to resist Beloved's ruthless magic and trickery?
