After a savage attack drives her from her home, sixteen-year-old Mnemba finds a place in her cousin Tumelo’s successful safari business, where she quickly excels as a guide. Surrounding herself with nature and the mystical animals inhabiting the savannah not only allows Mnemba’s tracking skills to shine, it helps her to hide from the terrible memories that haunt her.
Mnemba is employed to guide Mr. Harving and his daughter, Kara, through the wilderness as they study unicorns. The young women are drawn to each other, despite that fact that Kara is betrothed. During their research, they discover a conspiracy by a group of poachers to capture the Unicorns and exploit their supernatural strength to build a railway. Together, they must find a way to protect the creatures Kara adores while resisting the love they know they can never indulge.
I give this book a two out of five. I really wanted to like this book. When I read the summary for it before excepting to read it for an honest review I was really interested because it sounded really good. Then I started reading it and just couldn’t connect with the characters or the story. I didn’t feel anything and would get bored with reading to the point where I had to put it down at times. I think it would have been a really good book if there was more of a connection between the reader and the characters. I wouldn’t out right recommend this book but instead would let someone decide for themselves.
