War Unicorn by SL Carlson

Reg is content working in his family’s apple orchard—or as content as a fourteen-year-old magician can be digging holes—when he unearths an antique ring and releases a rude unicorn. 

She claims she belongs to the king, but after her long imprisonment, she can’t tell Reg which king that might be. Reg promises to bring her to the capital and deliver her to the palace, and suddenly a simple three-day trip turns into the adventure of a lifetime for a boy who dreams of freely practicing his magic.

War is building on his country’s borders, and even with the help of Reg’s new friend Iggy, and Gwen, the general’s daughter, it’s going to take all the courage—and magic—Reg has to find the unicorn’s rightful king.

Promises will be made, the bonds of family and friendship will be tested, and war will change everything.

Can an apple farmer and one rude war unicorn save their country from the approaching enemy?


S.L. Carlson loves being outdoors more than in. She has climbed mountains, swum in oceans, and crossed deserts with her two boys and husband. She has rounded up cattle, escaped wildfires, hid from tornadoes, and had encounters with wild boar, rattle snakes, and seed ticks. It took her twenty minutes to bait her first fishing hook with a very dry worm, but only a day and a half to learn to ride a motorcycle and pass the tests – in the rain. She has helped build houses in Iowa and Michigan, painted an orphanage in Mexico, sung in assisted living residents, and cleared debris in Louisiana after a hurricane. S.L. is first a storyteller, but has been writing ever since she wrote on her first lilac leaves as a kid with a stick. Besides a family-comes-first motto, S.L. is a former teacher who may or may not have seen mythical creatures while alone in the woods.
