This is the first book in the hotly anticipated new fantasy adventure series for readers age 9+, from A. F. Steadman. If you like Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, Eragon or His Dark Materials, you'll love this.

Two of our GALAXY fantasy specialists have read an advance copy and both are saying it's really good! If you're in the shop just ask them about it. They'll be happy to tell you.

Skandar Smith is a young boy who dreams of riding a deadly unicorn of his own fights for his destiny in this fantastical middle grade debut perfect for fans of the Percy Jackson and Eragon series!

Unicorns don't belong in fairy tales--they belong in nightmares. The deadly beasts can only be tamed by the rider who hatches them. So begins Skandar and the Unicorn Thief. Soar into a world where unicorns are real - and they're deadly. They can only be tamed by the rider who hatches them.

Thirteen-year-old Skandar Smith has only ever wanted to be a unicorn rider, and the time has finally come for him to take his Hatchery Exam, which will determine whether he is destined to hatch a unicorn egg. But when Skandar is stopped from taking the exam, and the mysterious and frightening Weaver steals the most powerful unicorn in the world, becoming a rider proves a lot more dangerous than he could ever have imagined. And what if Skandar was always destined to be the villain rather than the hero?

As he faces elemental magic, fierce sky battles, ancient secrets, nail-biting races and, of course, bloodthirsty unicorns, Skandar realises he and his friends are in graver danger than he ever imagined.

Get ready for unlikely heroes, elemental magic, fierce sky battles, ancient secrets, nail-biting races and, of course, bloodthirsty unicorns. This will be the biggest new series of 2022.
