Anne McCaffrey and Margaret Ball, two great names in the genre, join forces to create the first in a stunning and magical series about Acorna, The Unicorn Princess.
Science fiction and fantasy's most beloved female author turns her unparalleled talents to a brilliant new series written in collaboration with rising star Margaret Ball. The future of an entire species rests on the delicate shoulders of a tiny baby who was set adrift in a lifepod to save her from the vicious hands of Khlevii warriors. Her rescuers, three bachelor asteroid miners, marvel at the unusual child's astonishing growth rate and superior intelligence, naming her Acorna for her other-worldly silvery mane of hair and horn-like bump in the middle of her forehead.
Enchanting though she is, young Acorna's unusual talents capture the attention of some unsavory intergalactic inhabitants who are determined to twist her powers for their own gain. But as Acorna gains control over her powers she matures into a worthy contender in the interspatial adventures that pursue her in her desperate search for her People and their world.Quatrième de couverture :
It had started as a pleasure-cruise spaceship, but as the Khlevii moved close to them it threatened to turn into a death chamber. They knew there was no hope for them, the adults, but they took a chance on their youngling, nestled her into a pod and ejected her into space before exploding themselves and the hated Khlevii with them.
It was three young space prospectors in an asteroid mining ship, the Khedive, who hauled the piece of 'space debris' aboard and opened it up. It contained an alien youngling, though of which sex was at first debatable. Silvery hair curled down over the shoulder-blades and, in the centre of the forehead was the beginning of a small horn. The feet ended in tiny cleft hooves. The little alien was frightened, affectionate, and she was to become their mascot, their miracle girl. Many people on many planets wanted her and the mysterious powers she possessed, but Acorna had her own ideas of the tasks she was to accomplish in the worlds of space.
