Description

Reasonspace is in shambles after the disappearance of
all magical creatures. Without faster-than-light travel, supply and
communication routes have dried up, leaving humankind stranded and starving.
Cowboy Jim and his complement of Reason soldiers search for the relocated Bala
using the only surviving FTL drive. On their new utopian planet, the Bala are
on the brink of civil war between those who want peace under old-fashioned
unicorn rule and those who seek revenge on their human oppressors. Only Captain
Jenny and her new brain parasite can stop the Reason plan to enslave the Bala
again.

Review quote

"Pure wish fulfilment. That is... assuming you wish to be a down-on-his-luck, half-unicorn space rogue, struggling to reclaim his starship and find his lost horn against an army of human oppressors who hold all the cards." "I never knew fairies and unicorns could be so dark. The book throws aside so many tropes and just does whatever the fuck it wants, inventing an entirely new world with new rules, and I am always in support of that." "Shut your brain off and go along for the wild ride... Berry deftly creates a diverse and representative universe full of all kinds of magical creatures and humans, a strange, wacky world." "Five Unicorn Flush is a perfect blend of space opera and high fantasy and includes an incredibly diverse cast of mythological features, from centaurs and unicorns to dryads and dwarves." "Berry's follow-up to Space Unicorn Blues is just as zany and inexplicably touching as her first novel." "Fast, compelling, compassionate, and entertaining as all hell." "Five Unicorn Flush proves that Space Unicorn Blues wasn't a one-off success. Fast, compelling, compassionate, and entertaining as all hell, Five Unicorn Flush is a worthy successor. "
