Welcome to my Science Fiction Fantasy Saturday snippet. You can read other #sffsat snippts here.

Unicorn Keep is a young adult fantasy romance about a girl who swaps places with her best friend to become a unicorn keeper.

“Your family sent you alone,” Herrick said.

Of course they had, they had believed she was traveling on a well-traveled road to the closest city with Wilm as her escort. But she didn’t say that. Instead, she sat up taller. “You’re traveling alone.”

“I’m not a child.”
 
She glared at him. “I’m not a child either.”

“You couldn’t be more than fifteen.”
 
Her irritation grew at his accurate guess.

  4. I think I had this conversation before, with my parents...weird. Of course, they knew my exact age so there was no guesswork. I can see a nice little spat coming shortly! Good stuff!

    1. Kinda hard to argue when they know your exact age. :-)

  5. It's always infuriating when someone points out things you don't want to hear, even if they're true. I think everyone has had this moment, or at least I know I've run into to it quite a few times, so that made the snippet work even more for me. And that's beyond the super cool premise. Can't wait for more.

  8. Love this character, and love this story. I just picked up the book. I still haven't got to your other one (Spectors) yet, though. My bad. My TBR pile is preposterous. I'm working on it.

    1. Thanks Cary. No worries. I find myself hiding from my TBR pile as it keeps staring at me accusingly.
