"I must find my own kind!"

Found as an infant drifting in space, Acorna, the Unicorn Girl, has become a young woman. She still has her tiny, translucent horn, and her "funny" feet and hands. And, she still has her miraculous ability to make plants grow and heal human sickness.

But Acorna has strange dreams of a gentle folk who mind-speak by touching horns. With her "Uncle" Calum, one of the three grizzled asteroid prospectors who rescued, protected, and raised her, she sets off to find her people. No sooner does she leave than a mysterious craft appears, piloted by the Linyaari, a gentle race with telepathic powers.

The Linyaari are roaming the galaxy, spreading the alarm about the deadly Khleev--And searching for a beloved little girl they had given up for lost, long ago...

From Our Editors

Acorna the foundling comes of age, preparing to travel across space to reunite with her people. The Unicorn Girl’s powerful gifts have been tempered like fine steel and Acorna’s going to need them, for the evil alien Khelvii who killed her parents long ago are back to wreak havoc on her newly discovered family. Only Acorna’s incredible powers can save them all from destruction. Irish fantasy writer Anne McCaffrey teams up with Margaret Ball for the second book in the Acorna series, Acorna’s Quest.

Editorial Reviews

"Combining colorful characterizations, lots of fast-paced action, and a decided sense of menace...this is entertaining fare indeed." (Booklist on the Acorna series)
