Science Fiction Fantasy Saturday - Unicorn Keep

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.

Jiline slid down the final few steps of the steep path. The little meadow was crowded with the trainees.

Keeper Kellye cupped her hands together. “The unicorns will seek you out if they approve of you. If you don’t see a unicorn we will test you again in the spring. If a unicorn charges you, run for your life. We will be watching.”

The two keepers entered the woods in front of her. Somehow she doubted the unicorns were at all tempted to step foot in this crowded clearing so she walked forward to follow the keepers into the woods.

  1. I get the feeling this could end up going surprisingly well, or horribly wrong for her. Good snippet!

  2. Remember, when a wild animal with a deadly horn on it's head charges you, RUN!
    Always good advice.

  3. Yeah, I'm not sure that was necessary advice - I'd sure as heck run from an armed, charging animal!

  7. You'd think the keepers would put corks on the horns. For safety's sake! Health and safety in Britain would have a field-day!
    Well done!

  9. I guess this is where she finds out how the unicorns react to the swap.

  10. Intriguing--I'm betting at least one of the them will approve of Jiline. ;)

  11. That sounds like a dangerous test. But that makes this all more interesting.
