Young Adult Fantasy, 180pp.
After a savage attack drives her from her home, sixteen-year-old Mnemba finds a place in her cousin Tumelo’s successful safari business, where she quickly excels as a guide. Surrounding herself with nature and the mystical animals inhabiting the savannah not only allows Mnemba’s tracking skills to shine, it helps her to hide from the terrible memories that haunt her.
Mnemba is employed to guide Mr. Harving and his daughter, Kara, through the wilderness as they study Unicorns. The young women are drawn to each other, despite that fact that Kara is betrothed. During their research, they discover a conspiracy by a group of poachers to capture the Unicorns and exploit their supernatural strength to build a railway. Together, they must find a way to protect the creatures Kara adores while resisting the love they know they can never indulge.
"Beautiful YA Romance full of excitement and adventure. Kara and Mnemba's romance is healing and hopeful and lovely to read." — Suki Fleet, author of This is Not a Love Story, Foxes and The Glass House.
"A unique and refreshing addition to the LGBT YA genre. Diverse and exciting, with some of the best mythical creatures I'm ever seen (those mermaids!)" — Lauren James, author of The Next Together and The Last Beginning.
"The concept was so fresh and original, and the characters were adorable and rich. With shades of The Monstrumologist and The Abyss Surrounds us, I highly recommend Unicorn Tracks!" – Heidi Heilig, author of The Girl from Everywhere.
