If they fail, their mythical new friends will be forced to fight a deadly war... Can Lily use her wits and the power of her Maori heritage to preserve the unicorns' freedom?

Review quote

Kate Gordon has created an enchanting world bursting with believable characters, mythical creatures and valiant unicorns. Lily and the Unicorn King is sure to be a hit with anyone who loves pony stories, magic and adventure. Amanda Wills, author of the Riverdale Pony Stories.

A picture perfect adventure story for horse (and unicorn!) lovers everywhere! a happy reader

Lily and the Unicorn King is a truly splendid and gripping book which put a twist on the usual unicorn book. I have felt really connected with all the characters, making Lily's friends [Chloe and Sasha] feel almost like my friends. The fact that they have to keep their massive secret just makes the story so interesting and full of secrecy. There is simply nothing bad about this book that I could think of. a 9-year-old reader
